Benefits of Lip Augmentation with Dermal Fillers
Lip augmentation with dermal fillers can correct a multitude of aesthetic concerns related to the lips. Dr. Hunt and his team frequently provide lip augmentation treatments for the following reasons:
- Restore diminished lip volume
- Smooth horizontal wrinkles along the lips
- Define the lip border
- Balance the appearance of the upper and lower lips
- Create lip symmetry
- Enhance facial balance and proportions
- Add pout and fullness for a more sensuous look
Lip augmentation has grown increasingly popular in recent years due to the ease of the procedure, advancements in injectable products, and the impressive results that can be achieved. Women and men of all ages rely on JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® products to keep their lips looking youthful and beautifully contoured. While results are temporary, some next generation hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers can last up to a year or more. Regular follow-up appointments can be scheduled as needed to maintain your preferred degree of lip fullness.
Lip Augmentation Consultation
During a consultation at our practice, your injector will evaluate your lips, listen to your concerns and goals, and explain how augmentation with a specific dermal filler can benefit your lips and overall look. Once you have indicated the look you desire and your injector has developed a customized augmentation plan, you can proceed with treatment. You will be educated on what to expect both during and after the injections so that you are fully prepared.
The Lip Augmentation Procedure
During lip augmentation, the JUVÉDERM® or Restylane® is injected into the lips using an ultra-fine needle to add volume and a more defined contour. A topical numbing agent is applied prior to treatment to keep you comfortable during your lip injections. The treatment process generally takes no longer than 15 minutes. Some mild swelling is normal immediately after the injections are complete, but this side effect should fade away within a few days, leaving you with the perfect shape and size to your lips.
Lip Augmentation Results
Enhanced lip volume is apparent immediately after injections are complete. A few days following treatment, once any swelling has dissipated, you will be able to see the final results of your lip augmentation treatment. The majority of our patients who undergo injectable lip augmentation at our practice are thrilled with the new look they achieve. If for any reason you are not pleased with your results, or if you need a touchup to reach your goals, another appointment can be made for adjustments. With JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®, lip enhancement results can last from nine months to 18 months, and can be maintained with follow-up treatments.
