Get Fuller Lips With Juvéderm®

Get Fuller Lips With Juvéderm®

Not everyone is blessed with full lips. And even if you’re born with lips you love, you’ll discover that they naturally get thinner as the years go by.

Whether you want to plump and redefine your lips or eliminate the tiny wrinkles around your mouth (or both), you can look forward to beautiful results with Juvéderm®.

Theresa Durchhalter, DO, FAAD, at Allure Dermatology, specializes in facial rejuvenation using dermal fillers like Juvéderm, including creating the lips you envision. Here’s what you need to know about getting fuller lips with Juvéderm.

Why your lips need a lift

Some people naturally come by their thin lips, a feature dictated by their DNA. If you’ve lived with thin lips since birth, Juvéderm can help by adding fullness and reshaping them.

Everyone faces the challenge of thinning lips as they get older. While you pay close attention to the changes occurring in your face, chances are you don’t worry about aging lips until you look in the mirror one day and realize they’re thinning and your upper lip seems to be disappearing.

Your lips go through the same age-related changes as the rest of your body. The skin loses strength and elasticity, which causes dramatic changes in your lips because the skin there is thinner than in other body areas.

Your lips also produce less hyaluronic acid, which is essential for holding moisture and maintaining nourished, hydrated skin. If you’re not protecting your lips with sunscreen, exposure to ultraviolet light accelerates dehydration and skin damage.

The muscles supporting your lips also stretch and weaken as you age, and the usual layer of cushioning fat shrinks. The combined effect of all these changes leads to volume loss (thinning lips) and wrinkles.

Enhancing your lips with Juvéderm

Juvéderm is a family of injectable fillers specially formulated to target different cosmetic challenges. All the Juvéderm products contain hyaluronic acid in a gel base. The company uses its proprietary technology to cross-link the hyaluronic acid, creating a smooth, effective filler that’s injected under your skin and produces exceptional results.

Juvéderm Volbella® XC and Juvéderm Ultra XC are both specially formulated to treat your lips. Volbella augments your lips and smooths the fine lines around your mouth (perioral lines), while Ultra adds fullness and plumps thin lips.

We create the lips you want and eliminate wrinkles by choosing the appropriate product and precisely injecting the filler. In addition to giving you fuller lips, Juvéderm offers two other benefits.

With Juvéderm injectable fillers, you get immediate results, and your lips maintain their beautiful new appearance for up to a year.

The filler is gradually absorbed, slowly reverting back to the lips you had before your treatment. But Juvéderm is a safe product, and we can give you another treatment to maintain your new lips.

Here’s what happens during your Juvéderm treatment

During your initial consultation, we evaluate your lips and learn about the changes you want to make in their appearance. After discussing the results that can be accomplished with Juvéderm and explaining the procedure, you can decide whether it’s the best choice for you.

Juvéderm is injected using an ultra-fine needle that seldom causes discomfort, but we apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area. Additionally, Juvéderm Volbella XC and Juvéderm Ultra XC contain lidocaine, an anesthetic that works quickly and prevents injection discomfort.

After finishing your treatment, you stay in the office for a short time so we can watch for any side effects, and then you can go home. Though you can return to your usual daily routine, we may recommend avoiding strenuous exercise for 24 hours.

Most people experience mild tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bruising after lip treatment. Mild symptoms typically disappear in 24-48 hours, but moderate symptoms could take about a week to go away.

If you’re unhappy with thin lips and want to learn how Juvéderm can improve your appearance, call Allure Dermatology or request an appointment online today.
