Choosing a lip filler can be difficult when there are so many products on the market. However, at Enriched Aesthetics, we can help you find the best lip fillers and guide you through the process of having your first treatment.
We offer lip injections in Morristown, NJ, to help our patients resolve concerns about thin lips, asymmetrical lips, or lip wrinkles. We use JUVÉDERM® products for the lips because, among other reasons, these products offer a smoother and more natural look, and we love the results we can give to our patients.
What Are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are products that are injected into the lips to help them look more augmented or to resolve other aesthetic concerns. They are typically made from hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that everyone has in their bodies to help improve the hydration of the skin, joints, and more. Lip fillers can provide a temporary solution while still being relatively long-lasting, and they offer a no-downtime treatment with instant results.
What Are the Best Lip Fillers?
At our clinic, we are proud to offer the JUVÉDERM line of dermal fillers. JUVÉDERM offers fillers that vary in formulation to help target different concerns. The JUVÉDERM line includes two of the best lip fillers on the market today, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, and JUVÉDERM ULTRA XC.
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC is a good choice for achieving subtle and long-lasting lip enhancement. Formulated with a smaller hyaluronic acid particle size, this product is excellent for resolving fine lines around the mouth along with providing subtle augmentation while maintaining the softness and smoothness of your lips. This product offers natural-looking results, and the addition of lidocaine makes injections more comfortable.
JUVÉDERM ULTRA XC
JUVÉDERM ULTRA may be ideal for those who are looking for more dramatic lip augmentation. This product has a slightly different formulation that provides a more significant volume boost while still maintaining a natural look. This product also includes lidocaine to minimize discomfort during injections.
How Long Does Each Lip Filler Last?
Over time, all hyaluronic acid fillers will absorb, and the results will fade because of your body’s natural ability to metabolize this substance. However, most people can go a long time in between lip filler treatments. Both JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC and JUVÉDERM ULTRA XC can provide results for up to one year when injected by a qualified professional.
Comparison Between JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC and JUVÉDERM ULTRA XC
When you are deciding between JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC and JUVÉDERM ULTRA, you will want to consider the type of results you are looking for. For some patients, we may even recommend a combination of the two products. When you come to our office for your consultation, make sure to tell us exactly what you are looking for and whether you are more concerned about lip wrinkles or lack of volume. We will develop the right lip filler treatment plan for you.
Making the Most Out of Your Lip Filler Treatments
Because choosing the right types of lip fillers can determine the results that you get, we always start with a consultation. This is important for us to ascertain whether you are a good candidate for hyaluronic acid fillers.
Your Dermal Filler Treatments
Any time you are considering cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers, it is important to go to a reputable clinic. You should find a practice that is overseen by a board-certified medical practitioner with experience in aesthetics.
Post Treatment Care
Once you have received your injections, it is important to take care of the injection area, especially on such sensitive skin. Avoid rubbing or itching the area, avoid blood thinners, NSAIDs, and alcohol to minimize bruising, and make sure to stay hydrated.
Maintaining Your Results
Once you have had your lip injections, you can help your results to last longer by doing what you can to care for the treatment area. Good skincare that includes hydration and sun protection is important for helping lip fillers to last longer. It can be helpful to find a lip balm that includes sunscreen to help keep your lips healthy.
Scheduling Maintenance Appointments
Regular maintenance appointments can also help keep your lips plump and smooth. At our clinic, the goal is always to enhance your natural beauty rather than alter your appearance, so we will continue to have follow-up appointments so that we can determine whether we recommend scheduling another appointment.
What Are Treatments Like?
At our practice, we do everything we can to ensure a comfortable treatment. Depending on your preferences, we may begin with a local anesthetic. However, most people are fine with the lidocaine that is already included in the injections.
Next, we will inject the product using a very fine needle according to the goals that we talked about during your consultation. The injection can pinch, but the sensation is usually tolerated well. Injections are typically given at several different locations around the mouth, and the progress is visually assessed as we go. You will be able to see the results of your treatment right away, but you may need to wait a few days to see your full results.
