Full, sensual lips are something you can achieve with lip augmentation. Voluptuous lips remain a hot trend, and women of all ages can benefit from this quick cosmetic treatment. As we age, our lips get thinner and lose their definition, but some women were also born with very thin lips and feel self-conscious about them. Fuller lips can help balance your facial features and allow you to appear more youthful. Today’s advancements in beauty science have given women many more options in obtaining their desired look.

HA Lip Filler

Hyaluronic acid (HA) lip filler has emerged as one of the best ways to add volume and shape to the lips in one treatment session. The injections are fast, safe and yield long-lasting results. HA filler is a synthetic form of the substance that is naturally found in the human body. The gel-like serum creates pillowy soft, full lips that look and feel natural. We offer Juvederm® and Restylane® fillers for the lips, which offer long-lasting results. We can discuss your goals and develop a personalized treatment plan at your consultation.

Surgery Options

More voluptuous lips can also be created with surgical methods. One of these involves the PermaLip™ silicone implant. We generally use a local anesthetic when placing this implant. Although this implant is designed to be permanent, its smooth texture allows for it to be easily removed if you are unhappy with your results for whatever reason. If your lips are still too small, or if the implant makes them too big, we can remove the initial implant and design a better one for you.

HA lip filler remains the leading lip augmentation treatment because of its instant lip plumping results that can last for a number of months. You can have the procedure performed in about 15 minutes, and you leave the office with voluptuous new lips. The downtime is minimal if any, and the client can resume their normal daily activity following the injections. Some women call it the perfect lunchtime treatment.

Lip filler is also reversible should you not like the results, and you can go back to your previous appearance. Our aesthetic technician can inject an eraser enzyme called hyaluronidase, and that will quickly dissolve the filler.

Fuller lips are something most women desire, and the appearance balances the shape of the face. Lip augmentation can add subtle or stronger effects depending on the look you’re going for.
