If there’s one beauty treatment people can’t stop talking about, it’s lip enhancement. Lip fillers are becoming more popular amongst those looking to add structure, shape, and volume to their lips. It is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the US. Here is all you need to know before taking the plunge.
Lip injections have numerous benefits and are highly recommended for those who struggle with wrinkles and fine lines in the mouth area, have thin and poorly shaped lips, or desire fuller lips. Lip filler will give you a better smile in general. Another benefit of a lip enhancement procedure through lip injections is an improvement in your overall appearance. With fuller lips, you are likely to look younger and this can ultimately boost your self-esteem.
Lip fillers are made with hyaluronic acid - a substance naturally produced within the body that attracts moisture and holds up to 1000 times its weight. Hyaluronic acid is commonly found in serums, creams, and moisturizers to hydrate the skin and plump fine lines, but it’s also the ideal ingredient for lip fillers. When injected with hyaluronic acid, you’ll instantly see a plumper, fuller mouth.
When going in for a lip filler consultation, it’s necessary to express your desired results to Dr. Anne White. Do you want the filler amount to be noticeable, or more natural? You’ll decide if you want a full or half syringe, as well as which lip filler is the best fit for you. Restylane Kysse gives you a more natural look, while Juvéderm Ultra XC gives lips a more voluminous feel that can last up to a year.
On the day of treatment, we will apply a numbing cream to avoid any pain or discomfort during the procedure. This is a quick procedure and takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to complete. There is no downtime involved and your free to return to your daily activities almost immediately. You will also not have to deal with any pain or scarring and the minor redness and swelling will diminish within a short period of time.
The effects of lip injections will last for about six months and then you would require another session to retain the volume and shape of your new lips. This means that you can experiment with your new look by slowly adding volume each time to maintain a more natural look.
While we know you’ll love the results of your lip fillers, don’t fret if you don’t - because they’re temporary and 100% reversible. Book your appointment with Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center today!
