Hey gorgeous, glad to see you here again. It’s summertime here in California—the best time of the year—which calls for steamy nights with plenty of fun and love to go around. Because we understand that you want to look sexy all summer long, we’re here to make sure you’re thriving: Laser hair removal, check. Permanent makeup, check. Sculpted abs, check. Longer eyelashes, check. Youthful-looking skin, check. The list doesn’t stop there.
Fuller sexier lips? Check. We’re serious. Are you here for it? Keep reading!
Are you struggling with thin lips? Maybe one lip is thicker than the other? Or maybe you just want an enhancement? If so, stop overlining your lips and consider Juvederm lip injections a more organic route. These injections add volume to your lips without overpowering them and leaving them looking natural, fuller, and sexier. As you know by now, we strive for enhancing your already beautiful features, and lip injections add to that foundation.
What is Juvederm?
The Juvederm collection is a highly effective injectable dermal filler line designed to restore lost volume by smoothing out lines, wrinkles, and signs of aging. This filler is made with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA). This substance also occurs naturally in the body and contributes to healthy, supple skin as well as the production of collagen.
Because hyaluronic acid is naturally made and metabolized by the body, there are low rates of reactions to the products, and the product is slowly metabolized over time. The results typically last six to eighteen months, depending on the filler and injection location.
The manufacturer makes multiple types of fillers—Ultra, Ultra Plus, Vollure, Volbella, and Voluma —varying in thickness and elasticity. Thicker, less flexible products are used to create definition (think: cheekbone and jawline), bouncier products are used to add volume (to cheeks or lips), and thinner products are used to add hydration without changes in volume or structure (like the under-eyes and lips).
Since we’re talking lips, we’ll most likely recommend Volbella and Ultra to add plumpness and definition to the lips.
Do lip injections hurt?
The majority of patients tolerate injections fairly well. Juvederm, specifically, contains a mild anesthetic that helps minimize discomfort during treatment. If you have concerns about pain during the procedure, don’t be shy to ask about the possibility of an additional topical anesthetic for your treatment.
What are the benefits of Juvederm?
Where do we start? There are so many benefits! The procedure is relatively quick (typically 30 minutes to an hour), minimally invasive, and requires little-to-no downtime. Again, we mean beauty. The results are instant and long-lasting but not permanent, allowing flexibility and less commitment to a certain aesthetic.
Hyaluronic acid fillers' biggest benefit compared to non-hyaluronic acid fillers is that they are dissolvable. This means that any cosmetic result can be reversed at any time if desired. So don’t let the needle, or possibility of not liking your new lips scare you away from getting those kissable lips! The biggest misconception about dermal fillers is that one syringe can drastically change the lip's appearance. However, one syringe of filler is such a small amount of product that it only tweaks an area—minimally.
Juvederm treats age-related loss of facial volume and elasticity, while Botox treats lines and wrinkles that form due to repetitive muscle movement (smiling, frowning, raising eyebrows, etc.)
Common target areas for Juvederm include:
● Lips (of course)
● Nasolabial folds
● Fine lines and wrinkles around the lips
● Other facial wrinkles and folds caused by loss of volume
Common target arrears for Botox include:
● Forehead lines and wrinkles
● Lines between the eyebrows
● Crow’s feet lines and wrinkles around the eyes
How long do lip injections take to work?
The results of Juvederm lip injections can be seen almost immediately. However, mild bruising or swelling after treatment can temporarily mask the actual results, but this should resolve quickly.
How long will my lip injections last?
Of course, this varies from patient to patient depending on which specific filler was used for your lips. On average, Juvederm typically lasts about twelve to eighteen months before another injection is needed. Some fillers may diminish quicker than others, but most patients still enjoy their plumped lips for about one year between injections. Many patients report longer-lasting results after several rounds of injections. I mean, that’s pretty amazing.
