Do you ever look in the mirror and wish you had lips that resembled Angelina Jolie? Your wish can come true with a little help from lip fillers and the dermatologists at Dermatology & Mohs Surgery Institute. Plump, juicy lips can all be yours with a little boost of help from fillers containing hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by our body. It is a sugar that holds water and helps skin stay hydrated, plump, and fresh. The older we get the less water that is held, resulting in aging, wrinkly skin. Fortunately, there are ways to combat this both naturally and “less natural”. A natural way to increase lip size is by eating a good diet. A good diet helps to naturally increase production of hyaluronic acid in our body. This results in better elasticity and plumpness in our lips and other parts of our body. Another natural way is to create the illusion that your lips have been made more plump. You can achieve this by overlining your lips with a lip liner to make them appear larger and plumper than they currently are. Fill in your new lip line with the lip liner, add some lip gloss and you are all set! Kylie Lip Kits are highly recommended to achieve this. Other “less natural” ways include using hyaluronic acid injectables, serums and other supplements. These may include Juvederm and Restylane.
Juvederm and Restylane are similar products with similar results. The main difference being that Juvederm has more specific injectables for lip fillers, its results are immediate, and they last just a bit longer than Restylane. It is important to know the benefits of each when deciding.
Juvederm is a dermal filler that can easily help you achieve plump, juicy lips. As our natural hyaluronic acid in our lips disappears, Juvederm can take its place. A dermatologist will first numb the lips. Next, they will use a fine needle to inject hyaluronic acid into the lips. The procedure only takes a few minutes and results in immediate voluminous lips. When choosing Juvederm you can choose between Juvederm Ultra XC or Juvederm Vobella. Juvederm XC is meant to increase lip size. Juvederm Vobella reduces lip lines while also slightly increasing lip size.
When Restylane is used, the treatment area is numbed. A fine needle is then used to inject hyaluronic acid into the lips resulting in voluminous lips. After the first treatment, results will last up to six months. If you want longer lasting results, having another treatment within nine months of the first will lead to results lasting up to 18 months.
Consulting a dermatologist is recommended to determine which option is best for you and the results you are looking for. Exploring each option and their benefits can help you make the best choice.
