Plump Up Your Pout with Injectable Lip Fillers
- Posted on: Oct 25 2017
Take a stroll down any cosmetics aisle in your favorite store and chances are you will be overwhelmed by the various options available for plumping up your lips. While these options may be fine for temporary fixes, those looking for a longer-lasting solution may need to look beyond the cosmetic aisle and consider injectable lip fillers.
Over time, our lips start to lose their natural, youthful volume and the skin surrounding our lips begins forming wrinkles and folds. Dermal lip fillers are minimally invasive treatments that can give you fuller, plumper lips and eliminate laugh lines. There are several FDA-approved options that can give you fast, long-lasting results.
How Do Lip Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers help restore your natural volume by injecting hyaluronic acid into your lips. This acid is a natural substance in skin that adds volume and softness. Each injection procedure is different, but most of the time topical anesthesia is applied directly to your lips prior to injections.
As an outpatient procedure, you can expect to spend approximately an hour getting treated, and have minimal recovery. You may notice results right away, but it can take up to two weeks for full results. The effects of lip fillers can last anywhere from 6 months to a year. If you don’t like the look created by a particular lip filler, the procedure can be reversed with hyaluronidase.
How Do I Know Which Lip Filler is Best for Me?
Collagen used to be the only lip filler option on the market. Now there are several options such as Restylane Silk and Juvéderm products Volbella and Ultra, each with their own benefits. You’ll decide with your doctor or nurse injector which option will work best for you depending on the look you want to achieve.
Juvéderm Volbella works well for adding subtle volume to your lips, defining lip border, and removing lines around your mouth. Juvéderm Ultra is thicker than Volbella, and creates more noticeable volume. Restylane Silk is similar to Volbella, adding a soft volume to lips and treating lines around the mouth. Fillers can also be combined for various enhancements.
