If you want a product that can add subtle volume to your lips, resolve imbalances in lip shape, or help minimize lipstick lines, lip fillers may be the right treatment. Lip filler injections are a non-invasive treatment that can plump thin lips and reduce signs of aging around the mouth.
At Ageless Skin Rejuvenation in Virginia Beach, VA, we are dedicated to providing long-lasting and cost-effective services that can help address signs of aging and other aesthetic concerns. With our free consultations, we can introduce you to our lip augmentation treatments and develop a plan that will fit your individual concerns.
Lip fillers are injectable formulations that add volume to the lips. Many of the most common fillers are made from hyaluronic acid. This slippery substance is found in many areas of the body that need additional hydration such as the joints, eyes, and skin.
In its synthetic and injectable form, hyaluronic acid is biocompatible and can offer long-lasting volume to many areas of the face including the lips. Lip injections are a non-surgical treatment that can provide a low-downtime option for plumping and reshaping lips.
If you have naturally small lips or lips that have lost volume with age, lip augmentation with lip fillers can help to enhance the volume of the lips. This customizable treatment can be used to create subtle plumping in the lips as well as provide more dramatic volume depending on the patient’s preferences.
If the lower half of your lips is out of balance with the upper half or if one side has more volume than the other, we can help improve lip symmetry through lip injections. We can add more filler to certain areas or treat only the areas that have less volume.
While we always work with the patient’s natural lip shape and facial structure to ensure that the lips look natural and balanced, lip filler treatments can be used to alter the shape of the lips. These products can be used to contour the lips and create more defined lines.
Fine lines can often appear around the mouth. Often called lipstick lines or perioral wrinkles, these lines can come from a loss of elasticity in the skin as well as reduced volume. Hyaluronic acid lip fillers can fill the area and smooth away vertical lip lines.
The duration of lip filler treatment results is variable. It depends on the product that was used, the amount of product injected, and the area that was treated. Juvéderm® Volbella® XC and Juvéderm Ultra XC can both last up to 1 year, according to clinical trials. With Restylane® Silk, patients were still happy with their lip improvement at 6 months after injections. You can talk to your doctor to find out more about expected lip filler results.
Restylane is a line of hyaluronic acid filler products. This line features a more granular texture that can stay effectively in one area. These moldable fillers can be a good option for patients looking for specific and defined results.
Restylane Silk is FDA-approved to augment the lips and smooth fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. This product can offer natural-looking results and it offers a smoother formulation than other Restylane products.
Restylane Kysse is a product that features XpresHAn Technology™. This technology allows the product to have more natural movement while providing volume to the lips. This filler can also help to enhance lip color.
Juvéderm has a smooth gel formulation that is more diffuse. This line of products uses Vycross™ Technology which makes the product easier to inject. It can also create a natural-looking result that moves along with the expressions of the lips and can make them soft, smooth, and plump.
Juvéderm Volbella is a light and smooth filler that can be used to plump the lips and resolve lip lines. It contains lidocaine which can make treatments more comfortable with each injection. This product can be a good choice for patients looking for subtle lip augmentation.
Juvéderm Ultra XC is also a hyaluronic acid lip filler that is indicated for use in the lips. It has a higher concentration of HA which can make it a better choice for patients who want more dramatic contouring and long-lasting volume.
You should notice an immediate increase in the volume of your lips after injection. However, it can take more time for the product to settle into your lips and for the full results of your treatment to be seen. We recommend waiting a week or more to see your final results.
