Many of us are born with naturally thin lips. Others notice that the size of their lips diminishes as part of the natural aging process. Previously, only limited treatments were available to enlarge lip size. However, lip augmentation procedures using lip fillers have become more accessible, and many people use them to balance their facial features.
What Are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers include hyaluronic acid, a substance produced naturally in the body. People often notice increased wrinkles and thinner lips due to reduced hyaluronic acid production. However, lip fillers can fill in thin lips, resulting in a more proportionate look to the face.
While there are numerous dermal fillers, only certain dermal fillers enhance the size of the lips. At Exclusively Radiant MedSpa, we use Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Volbella XC for lip augmentation procedures.
Results from Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Volbella XC are long-lasting. Many patients don’t need a maintenance appointment for up to a year following their initial treatment.
How Does Lip Augmentation with Lip Fillers Work?
Lip augmentation with lip fillers is entirely non-surgical. Before performing a lip augmentation procedure, our team closely considers the patient’s aesthetic goals. Some patients want to enhance their upper and lower lips, while others want to enhance only the top or bottom lip.
The placement of lip fillers is critical. We seek to achieve a natural look that gives patients results without being overly noticeable. We place the injections at sites on the lips that will provide the desired enhancement. Our patients are typically delighted with their lip augmentation procedures.
Those who want more dramatic results can achieve them through lip augmentation. If you prefer more enhancement, we’ll make sure that we keep your facial proportions and features in mind. The results will harmonize with your other features to provide a balanced appearance.
If you change your mind, we can quickly reduce the amount of filler we injected by dissolving it with hyaluronidase. You can feel confident knowing that you’re not stuck with the results if you don’t feel comfortable with them.
What Are the Benefits of Lip Fillers?
Some benefits associated with lip fillers include:
You won’t need to wait long to see the results of your lip augmentation procedure. Lip fillers offer immediate results that become fully apparent within three days. While other treatments take time to become visible, lip fillers provide an immediate change to your appearance.
There is no downtime following a lip filler treatment. You’ll be able to return to your normal activities immediately following your appointment. For those with busy schedules, the lack of downtime is desirable.
Each individual has different goals they want to achieve with lip fillers. Some people seek only a moderate enhancement, while others look for more dramatic results. We consider each patient individually and design a treatment plan according to their needs.
One of the best advantages of lip fillers is the appearance of fuller lips. Fuller lips balance facial features while optimizing the size of your mouth in accordance with your aesthetic goals. While makeup can help create an illusion of larger lips, lip fillers are a longer-term solution.
Lip augmentation with Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Volbella XC is long-lasting. Once injected, you won’t need maintenance treatments for up to a year. You can enjoy your fuller lips without scheduling regular touch-ups.
What Can I Expect During a Lip Augmentation Procedure?
Before you have lip filler treatment, an experienced team member will perform a thorough consultation to understand your treatment goals. We’ll ask for your medical history and a list of medications you’re taking. Understanding your goals and medical history allows us to determine whether lip fillers are the right solution for you.
We’ll begin by applying a topical anesthetic that numbs your lips. Once your lips feel numb, we’ll inject the filler into the lip areas you want to enhance using a small needle. As we inject the filler, your lips instantly plump up with enhanced shape and definition.
Once our experienced team member has performed the procedure, we’ll massage the lips to ensure the proper distribution of the filler. The entire procedure will last less than half an hour. You can return to your normal activities immediately afterward.
We’ll provide you with aftercare instructions to follow. Make sure to follow the instructions to maximize your lip augmentation results.
Can I Combine Other Filler Treatments with Lip Augmentation?
Exclusively Radiant MedSpa offers filler treatments for those seeking to address other concerns, such as wrinkles and loss of volume to the face. Our full suite of Juvéderm dermal fillers can replace volume in cheeks and smooth out moderate to deep wrinkles.
If you want to treat other areas, let us know during your consultation. We’ll suggest solutions that are appropriate for your treatment goals.
We often provide dermal filler treatments at the same time as lip augmentation, giving the patient more pronounced, dramatic results. If you choose to have both lip and dermal fillers, a single session reduces the time you need to take away from other essential activities, like work or family.
