We all know that wrinkles around the eyes are a sure sign of aging. However, what many may not know is that our lips are among the first to lose their volume and definition over time and, in most cases, are the first to show signs of aging. We can begin to lose volume to our lips as early as 30 years old. Aging, hereditary factors, photo-damage, and personal habits like smoking contribute to loss of fullness and the development of perioral lines (lines around the mouth.)
No matter your age, anyone can have a plump, beautiful pout with the help of injectable fillers. Lip fillers, or dermal fillers, are a quick and easy way to get instant results for one of the most prominent parts of your face. Anyone who wishes they had more prominent lips may consider lip augmentation with hyaluronic fillers that come in different densities for extra plumpness, added definition, and smoothness.
What are Injectable Fillers?
Injectable filler treatments help to reduce the signs of aging, such as volume or shape loss, smoker’s lines, downturned lips, a gummy smile, and much more to restore your natural, youthful appearance. Using properly placed products such as JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, JUVÉDERM® Volbella XC, and Restylane® can help increase the size, shape, and definition of your lips to enhance and add symmetry your appearance. Treatments take less than 1 hour and provide immediate results and can be obvious or subtle based on your aesthetic goals. When lip fillers are injected correctly, you can produce very natural results. Expertly injected lips provide fullness and structure to correct, balance, and enhance your facial features.
Am I a Good Candidate for Lip Fillers?
If you are tired of having to hide thin lips by overlining them with lip-liner or you’ve noticed your lips thinning as you age, then you may want to consider fillers. Over time, lips can become deflated due to a loss of volume in the supporting tissue, giving lips a thin and even downturned appearance. Lip fillers can change the appearance of the lips by adding volume and definition, making the lips fuller and plumper.
Which Type of Lip Filler Should I Get?
The results you are looking for will determine what filler is best for your lip injection. There are many different types of dermal fillers available on the market currently, but for plumping your pout, hyaluronic acid fillers are the best for lips. Unlike old fillers like silicone, hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in your body that attracts water, enhancing the hydration and fullness of your lips. These products help your body retain that water so that your lips stay full longer. Before receiving a lip injection, a nurse injector will meet with you and go over all your options. All lip fillers can help perfect and add volume to the lips, but it is important to determine which one(s) will provide optimal results for you.
When performing lip augmentation procedures, we carefully consider not only size but also the definition and shape of your lips. Overfilling or improper placement of fillers creates a puffy, undefined appearance. Our experienced nurse injector will skillfully sculpt your lips so they look beautifully balanced.
Schedule an appointment with our nurse injector to discuss whether or not you’re a good candidate for lip augmentation, identify your problem areas, and decide which type of filler will help you obtain your desired look. Lip fillers can rejuvenate your lips and give you the boost you need to feel more youthful and attractive. Call (610) 519-0600 to schedule your consultation to review your options for lip fillers.
