Lip Enhancement

Lip enhancement is a popular injectable fillers treatment to give the lips a fuller, more attractive look. Lip lifts and lip augmentation techniques can also make a difference.

What Is Lip Enhancement?

Lip enhancement Tucson involves a number of lip augmentation techniques to improve the shape of your lips, add volume and smooth the lip lines around the lips and mouth. While many surgical procedures like lip implants can help in lip augmentation, many board-certified plastic surgeons associated with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons prefer using minimally invasive treatments like lip enhancement for achieving natural-looking results.

Why consider lip enhancement?

If you are unhappy with your facial features and want to enhance the lip shape or add volume to the lips without opting for plastic surgery, cosmetic treatments like lip enhancement can boost your self-confidence and make you more comfortable with your looks.

A skilled plastic surgeon can help bring about these changes with the help of injectable fillers or dermal fillers that can:

  • Restore lip volume to create fuller lips
  • Plump the lips
  • Even out the lip lines
  • Improve lower and upper lip symmetry
  • Redefine the shape of your lips
  • Lip enhancement

How are Juvéderm fillers used for lip enhancement?

Juvéderm fillers represent the industry gold standard in terms of efficacy, patient safety, and quality. Juvéderm fillers are Hyaluronic acid fillers that contain Hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. These HA lip injections help in adding volume to the lips and smooth out fine lip lines and wrinkles.

There are two Juvéderm formulas available that help in lip augmentation or lip enhancement:

  • Juvederm Volbella XC – Juvéderm Volbella XC is ideal for those who want fuller lips along with correction of facial lines and wrinkles around the mouth. These lines, often known as perioral lines or lip lines, are among the most common cosmetic complaints among aging women. Juvéderm Volbella XC is an all-in-one treatment option to address these concerns with a simple treatment process. Juvéderm Volbella XC fillers are injected using a very tiny needle. Furthermore, it’s formulated with lidocaine to make the lip injections as painless as possible.
  • Juvederm Ultra XC – Juvéderm Ultra XC is ideal for patients who wish for full lips, but do not necessarily need treatment for facial wrinkles. This may be the case if you have naturally thin lips even before the aging process sets in. Juvéderm Ultra XC is available to patients over 21 years of age.

When it comes to dermal fillers, people often think about correcting fine lines and wrinkles on the face. However, dermal fillers can have beneficial effects on another common sign of aging: thinning lips. Just like other areas of the face, there is a loss of lip volume over time due to collagen degradation and loss of moisture in the skin. Therefore, you might crave a fuller, bigger pout as you get older. Fortunately, you can see amazing results with Juvéderm lip fillers for lip enhancement Tucson with WildBerry MD in Tucson.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the effect of lip enhancement last?

Both Juvéderm Volbella XC and Juvéderm Ultra XC are not permanent solutions. The results of these procedures last up to 1 year. Each treatment can also be repeated annually to preserve the achieved results.

Do results look natural?

Juvéderm fillers have a thick, gel-like consistency. This reduces how far these formulations may travel when they are injected into the skin. Therefore, results are predictable and natural looking. However, it also helps to visit a board-certified plastic surgeon with lots of experience administering injectable fillers. This will ensure you have the most natural looking results available.

Are Juvéderm lip fillers right for you?

Almost anyone over 21 is a candidate for Juvéderm fillers for lip enhancement. If you want fuller lips and are in relatively good health, you can see beautiful results with Juvéderm fillers.

What are the side effects of a lip augmentation procedure?

Lip injections can cause some temporary side effects such as redness, tenderness, bleeding from injection sites, bruising, and swelling. Patients can expect to see an immediate increase in volume, and it is safe to resume regular daily activities once they feel comfortable after the appointment. Some patients may experience more swelling than expected, leading them to worry about overly large lips, but this is normal and will subside within several days. The end result of the injection is a natural-looking, full lip.

What is fat grafting?

Autologous fat injections, also called fat grafting, use fat from another part of your body as a lip filler. Fat grafting typically involves liposuction surgery on a different area of the body, and the procedure can be done without incisions on the face or lips. Fat injections should only be performed by a qualified plastic surgeon with specialized training in fat transfer procedures. With such a provider, fat injections can achieve a beautiful augmented lip contour that looks and feels very natural and last for years.
