If you are looking for a way to add subtle volume to your lips, you can consider lip fillers. These products can help to improve lip volume for lips that are naturally thin or that have thinned with the natural aging process. They can also help to address other lip concerns such as vertical lip lines, asymmetry, and more.
At Enriched Aesthetics in Morristown, NJ, we offer a wide range of dermal fillers, many of which can be used to plump and volumize the lips. With our gentle touch and eye for natural beauty, we can create a shape that works harmoniously with the rest of your features.
What Are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are products that are injected into the lips to help to create or restore volume. At our practice, we use fillers that are made from synthetic hyaluronic acid. This substance, which helps to hydrate your skin and joints, can be injected in small amounts to improve the shape and fullness of the lips.
What Are the Different Types of Lip Fillers?
At our practice, we offer JUVÉDERM® fillers by Allergan. These smooth fillers can provide volume while still allowing your lips to look natural. JUVÉDERM offers two products that can be perfect for adding volume to lips, reducing fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, and more.
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC
VOLBELLA XC is a lip filler that features Vycross® technology. This crosslinking technology allows this filler to have an even smoother consistency and to look and feel more natural. It is perfect for areas such as the lips and allow for a smooth and kissable texture while also providing additional volume. It can also be used for lines around the mouth.
JUVÉDERM ULTRA XC
ULTRA XC is a gel that can be injected into and around the lips. It is indicated for patients over 21 who have thin lips and who want them to be more plump. Like other JUVÉDERM products, it also includes lidocaine to help decrease discomfort as the treatment progresses.
How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?
JUVÉDERM fillers can last a different amount of time for each patient. However, in JUVÉDERM studies, both VOLBELLA XC and ULTRA XC lasted up to one year with optimal treatment. You can talk to your doctor to find out more about how long fillers could last in your situation.
What Are the Benefits of Lip Fillers?
Enhanced Lip Volume
One of the primary uses of lip injections is as a lip augmentation treatment. Additional volume can help to improve the texture of lips, smooth out lines, and give your lips more volume.
Improved Lip Shape
Fillers are not only helpful for lip augmentation, but they can also be useful for improving lip shape. Using lip injections, we can create many different lip shapes. At our practice, we always take into account your individual features so that you still look like you with slightly fuller lips.
Improved Lip Symmetry
Many people have lips that are larger on one side than the other. By using hyaluronic acid lip fillers, we can even out the shape of your lips and make them look more symmetrical.
Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As we age, the decrease of collagen and elastin production in the skin can lead to thin lips and can also cause vertical lip lines to appear around the mouth. Hyaluronic acid lip fillers provide the volume needed to smooth these fine lines and wrinkles and make your lips and mouth look more youthful.
Fast, Non-Invasive Treatment
Lip filler treatments can be quickly performed in our office. It often takes just a few minutes to complete depending on the amount of filler that is being injected. It is also a non-invasive way to plump your lips and causes minimum discomfort due to the lidocaine in the solution itself.
Can Be Reversed
While your body can break down hyaluronic acid over time, the process can be sped up if desired. Any hyaluronic acid filler can be reversed using an enzyme called hyaluronidase which dissolves the filler. If you decide that you don’t like your filler, you can always have it dissolved. With the injection of hyaluronidase, the filler will begin to soften right away and dissolve within a couple of weeks after treatment.
Are You a Good Candidate for Lip Fillers?
If you desire to have fuller lips, you may be a good candidate for lip fillers. The product is best for patients who are in good health and who have realistic goals about what the treatment can achieve for them. It is also a good treatment for patients who are looking for minimally invasive treatments rather than surgery to correct cosmetic concerns. You can discuss your aesthetic goals, your medical history, and your concerns with your doctor to find out if lip fillers are right for you.
