Lip augmentations with soft tissue fillers are the ideal alternative for patient’s who’d like to instantly volumize lips without surgery. But, each filler is designed to achieve a different outcome. Some formulas are thicker and create dramatic results while others are thinner and produce subtle natural-looking results. With the wide variety of choices these days, it can be hard to differentiate which might be best for you without a little insider knowledge.
Our go-to dermal fillers are often hyaluronic acid (HA) based like the well-known Juvederm line. HA is a naturally occurring substance found within the body which makes the chances of an adverse reaction minimal. Aside from plumping your pout, hyaluronic acid helps keep your lips looking hydrated and glossy.
Dr. Tenley K. Lawton offers several solutions for patients who want to volumize lips or improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Let’s take a look at a few of your options when it comes to softer, more delicate areas such as the lips.
Juvederm Ultra has a more viscous consistency that instantly adds volume to thin lips. The procedure is done in-office and takes as little as 15-30 minutes. Juvederm Ultra is lidocaine-enhanced to keep you comfortable throughout. There is no need for any recovery time so you can get back to your normal routine immediately. Patients can expect results to last upwards of 6-months.
Juvederm Volbella is a thinner dermal filler that gives patients subtly fuller lips. The injectable is also great for softening the fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth known as smoker’s lines. Treatments are done in-office, and there’s no downtime required. Patients can expect immediate long-term results up to 6-9 months.
