Aging is definitely not for “sissies” and is definitely unavoidable.
One of the areas of your body that changes as you age is your lips - perhaps one of the reasons cosmetic lip injections have become so popular and are one of the most requested non-surgical cosmetic procedures at Signature Plastic Surgery.
You have more than likely read about lip injections and you may have even considered this procedure. The good news is that plumper, fuller lips are achievable in our office using Juvederm® injectable gels…known as the “next generation” of facial fillers. As an additional benefit, Juvederm® is effective in minimizing fine “smile lines” and deeper "parentheses" lines around your mouth.
How Juvederm® or Restylane works
- Juvederm® or Restylane are made with hyaluronic acid, a substance which naturally occurs in your body. This makes it easily accepted and unlikely to cause an adverse reaction. It is FDA approved and is safe and effective.
- A lip enhancement procedure is typically done using a nerve blocker anesthetic, similar to a dental anesthetic, which numbs your lips and ensures that you are relaxed and comfortable before the gentle procedure begins. The procedure takes about 15 minutes; the results typically last about six to nine months.
- Following a Juvederm®/Restylane procedure, you can return to your normal activities and work schedule immediately. There may be some mild bruising that may last a few days but can be easily camouflaged with make-up.
Schedule a consultation
If you want to minimize the appearance of fine lines around your mouth, restore a more youthful appearance and enhance the appearance and fullness of your lips, a Juvederm® treatment may be just the ticket. However, keep this in mind - Discuss your “plumping” expectations with Dr.Shah. He is known for his ability to precisely administer Juvederm®, not only to correct fine lines and deep wrinkles but to ensure natural-looking lips. His goal is to ensure that you achieve the natural look you want. An excellent rule of thumb as you consider a plumping procedure is “less is more.” Maintaining the normal anatomy of your lips with subtle injections can result in more naturally appearing lips.
