5 Reasons lip enhancement may be right for you!
Whether you’re looking for attitude, kissability or just a little enhancement, this season’s latest aesthetic trend is all about the lips. And with the recent FDA approval of dermal filler Juvéderm Ultra XC for lip enhancement, now you can have results for up to 1 year — twice as long as other approved fillers for the lips! Ultimately, however, the question everyone has to ask is, is lip enhancement right for me? Here are 5 facts to help you decide:
Men and women get lip injections for a variety of reasons; some simply want fuller lips, while others may want to restore age-related volume loss. Lip injections can even be used to tweak the shape of the lips too (think: cupid’s bow).
You don’t have to go all out. You can pick and choose the areas of the lips that you want to enhance, whether it’s both, just the bottom or the top — whatever you decide (with a little professional guidance) that will compliment you best.
You will see results almost immediately, though there will be some initial swelling. Give yourself at least 24 hours for that to dissipate, but also don’t make big plans for at least a week in case you experience bruising.
Juvéderm Ultra XC has lidocaine to make treatment comfortable. You may feel the first pinch, but the sting that accompanies fillers without lidocaine? Practically nonexistent!
HA fillers come with an insurance of sorts — if you don’t like your results, we can reverse them with hyaluronidase to erase the filler completely.
Did we mention that Juvéderm Ultra XC lasts for up to 1 year? Until now, HA fillers approved for lip enhancement only lasted 4 to 6 months. Juvéderm Ultra XC is an injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) gel filler that is also approved for treating wrinkles and folds and adding volume to the face.
