Here’s Why You Should Get Lip Fillers
The lips are one of the most important features of the face. When we are talking to someone, we not only notice their lips but unconsciously or subconsciously evaluate them. Thankfully, lip fillers enhance, and obtain youthful looking lips! The fullness of the lips is a sign of sensuality and youth. As we age, we begin to create less collagen, which is needed to create the plumpness in our lips we desire.
There are several options to create soft, natural-appearing lips with Hyaluronic Acid Gels (a substance naturally present in our bodies) – My preferred in office product choices are RestylaneⓇ and JuvedermⓇ which produce beautifully enhanced lips.
The key point of lip filler is, natural looking lips!
There are various, non-invasive, proportioned steps that we follow to ensure the upper and lower lips look organically enhanced. You won’t have to worry about leaving our office with ‘duck’ or ‘sausage lips’.
To give you a better visual; In general, the upper lip should be ⅓ of the size while the lower lip should be ⅔ of the total size of both lips. A curve and “natural pout” can be created to lift and bring out the border of the lips within the skin.
1. It’s Not Permanent
Sometimes this is the best news to patients. The filler will dissolve naturally in the body over a period of 6-8 months. This means that you can switch up your treatment when you return. You can choose to use less or more product or discuss another injection technique with your injector, depending on the overall look you desire. Another great fact is that most Hyaluronic Acid fillers are reversible. This is done by using a substance called hyaluronidase. Even though it is a very rare occurrence that a patient wishes to reverse this procedure, it’s still reassuring to know it can be done.
2. Fillers Are Safe
Hyaluronic Acid is in 90% of all dermal fillers that most reputable doctors & injectors use, such as our office. This can leave you feeling rest assured that this is a safe material that our bodies form naturally. In other words, having an allergic reaction is something that rarely happens after the hyaluronic acid filler has been injected.
3. Quick To Administer
Little downtime, non-invasive, and it can all be done in around 10-15 minutes. Lip fillers are somewhat of an art because not one set of lips is the same. Nor is the look someone is trying to achieve. Generally speaking though, it is very quick to administer. Following treatment, swelling & possible bruising can be expected. The positive is that you can return to work, and resume your regular daily routine.
4. Improved Shape & Overall Look
You don’t have to get lip fillers just for anti-aging. Some patients feel they have uneven lips, lines & creases from smoking or don’t feel their lips are balanced well with their overall face. Sometimes thinning of the lips is caused by genetics.
5. Lips Give Away Aging
We associate plump lips with that of a younger person. Think of someone you know who has very hydrated & plumps lips. It is most likely a super cute baby or a friend who has received lip fillers (let’s be honest). Now, we obviously aren’t trying to give you an infant’s pout but would like you to feel youthful in that area again & lip fillers can easily help you achieve that.
