Achieve plump and luscious lips

Lip augmentation enhances the size, shape, and contours of the lips to achieve a desired aesthetic appearance. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC, are used to add volume and definition to the lips. The procedure is highly customizable, allowing individuals to achieve fuller lips, improve symmetry, define lip borders, or correct age-related volume loss, resulting in natural-looking and youthful lips.

Lip augmentation treats the following:

  • Thin or flat lips
  • Loss of lip volume due to aging
  • Undefined lip borders
  • Asymmetry in lip size or shape
  • Lines and wrinkles around the lips (perioral lines)

The unique benefits of lip augmentation:

  • Customizable results tailored to individual preferences
  • Minimally invasive procedure with little to no downtime
  • Natural-looking enhancement of lip volume and shape
  • Reversible effects with the option to dissolve filler if desired
  • Immediate improvements with gradual settling for optimal outcomes
  • Enhanced self-confidence and satisfaction with one’s appearance

Lip augmentation FAQs

How does lip augmentation work?

Lip augmentation involves injecting the gel-like hyaluronic acid filler into the lips. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that attracts and retains water, adding volume and moisture to the lips. As the filler integrates into the lip tissue, it enhances volume, shape, and definition. The procedure is minimally invasive and offers customizable outcomes.

Who is a good candidate for lip augmentation?

Ideal candidates for lip augmentation are individuals who are in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and desire fuller or more defined lips. It’s essential to discuss your medical history, including any allergies or medications, with your provider during your consultation to determine if lip augmentation is suitable for you.

What should I expect during and after the lip augmentation procedure?

During the procedure, your provider will evaluate your lips and discuss your aesthetic goals. After cleansing the treatment area, they will inject the filler into specific areas of the lips using fine needles. You may experience mild swelling, bruising, or redness, but these effects subside within a few days. You can resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure, but avoid strenuous exercise and excessive sun exposure for the first 24 hours.

Is lip augmentation painful?

Most individuals experience minimal discomfort during lip augmentation. Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream may be applied to the lips to minimize any discomfort. Additionally, many hyaluronic acid fillers contain lidocaine, a numbing agent, to further enhance comfort.

How long do the results of lip augmentation last?

The duration of lip augmentation depends on factors like the type of filler used, individual metabolism, and lifestyle factors. Typically, hyaluronic acid fillers provide results that last from 6 months to 1 year. Regular maintenance may be recommended to sustain optimal results.

Can lip augmentation be reversed?

Yes, one of the advantages of using hyaluronic acid fillers for lip augmentation is that the effects are reversible. If you are unhappy with the results or experience any complications, the filler can be dissolved using an enzyme called hyaluronidase.
