Losing lip volume and developing fine lines in the region are normal parts of aging, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them.
Whether you wish to slow down the clock on your lips, or you’ve always had thin lips, Juvéderm® fillers can help. This minimally invasive treatment adds volume to your lips while smoothing out surrounding lines.
At Rapaport Dermatology of Beverly Hills, with locations in Beverly Hills and Culver City, California, Vicki Rapaport, MD, and her team offer lip fillers to give you the more youthful, revitalized look you desire.
In this blog, Dr. Rapaport discusses the ins and outs of Juvéderm lip fillers.
How Juvéderm lip fillers work
Juvéderm offers a range of fillers, each designed for particular uses. For example, Juvéderm Volbella XC is specifically made to add plumpness and smoothness to your lips. It contains hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that’s produced naturally by the body.
Each treatment takes only minutes. During your session, your provider injects Juvéderm Volbella XC gel into the treatment area using an extra-fine needle. Because this dermal filler contains lidocaine for numbness, any pain you experience should be minor. Afterwards, you might notice some tenderness in the area, which should diminish quickly.
The results of Juvéderm lip fillers
With Juvéderm fillers, the results are immediate. You'll walk away with fuller, smoother lips, and your results could last as long as a year.
In one study, 91% of the participants who received hyaluronic acid lip fillers reported increased lip fullness two months post-treatment, and 46% reported that they continued to experience those results for 6-12 months after the treatment.
Getting started with Juvéderm lip fillers
If you’re interested in lip filler treatment, our team can recommend an ideal plan based on certain factors, such as your age, the appearance of your lips and skin, and your goals. In addition to Juvéderm, we also offer Restylane® Silk lip fillers, which can also deliver great results.
And, while we’re plumping up your lips, you may also opt for additional fillers that can do any of the following:
- Diminish facial wrinkles
- Restore cheek volume
- Subtly improve your jawline
- Add volume to the skin on your hands
You can also opt to have Botox ® injections the same day as your filler treatments if you’re bothered by crow’s feet, frown lines, or similar issues.
