Let’s Talk Lip Fillers
There has been a definite rise in demand for lip fillers thanks to influencers like Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian. This spike in popularity gives technicians more opportunities to educate our clients on how lip fillers really work.
An Introduction to Lip Augmentation
To augment means to supplement, enhance or enlarge; a lip augmentation is what we perform on clients who want to increase the volume in their upper and/or lower lips.
At Barry Lycka MD & Associates, we use dermal fillers for lip augmentation. Ideal candidates for this kind of procedure are those who have naturally thin lips as well as those who have experienced loss of volume as a symptom of aging. This loss of volume can make the lips look so thin that they almost “disappear” which results in lower self-confidence.
How Lip Fillers Work
We use dermal fillers to augment the lips, which involves injecting hyaluronic acid into the lip area to improve the overall shape and contour, revealing a plump pout.
Because hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, these dermal fillers are safe and highly effective for most clients. Our team uses Juvederm and Restylane loyally, as these lip filler brands are dermatologist-tested and trusted.
Lip augmentation leads to improved self-confidence almost immediately after each treatment. Benefits of using hyaluronic acid fillers to enhance or restore volume in the lips include:
- Control over the lip volume to prevent “over-plumping”
- Less bruising around the injection site
- Reasonably long-lasting results (4-6 months)
- Harmless absorption of hyaluronic acid back into the body
- Relatively painless procedure
- No downtime
