Austin Lip Injection Specialists
Are you interested in lip injections? Full, luscious lips have always been a desirable trait for women, but in recent years, the trend is more prevalent than ever. Facial features can’t be changed through diet or exercise; an advantage that you may have if you hope to transform other parts of your body.
That doesn’t mean you’re stuck with what the genetic lottery gave you though, as even relatively non-invasive options (when compared to surgical procedures) are available to help you enhance your appearance.
If it is fuller lips that you’re looking for, lip injections can help you achieve this. Juvederm, in particular, has its advantages over older versions of lip filler. At Personique On The Spot in Austin, we are happy to discuss the requirements and get you started!
Benefits of Lip Injections
- The substance in the Juvederm injections is called hyaluronic acid, and it also naturally occurs in the body. This makes it less harmful since it’s not a foreign substance being put into your system.
- Juvederm is smooth in its formula, making it ideal for people with sensitive skin and all skin types.
- There are different formulas of Juvederm designed to address various issues including lip enhancement along with deeper lines and finer wrinkles.
While Juvederm is one of the most popular options selected by our patients today, other fillers are available and may be selected to address your particular needs.
How Is The Procedure Performed?
The procedure with each of these fillers is an injection into the lip with a microfine needle. Typically just one injection is required, and the process is gradual, taking about 20 minutes total. A topical numbing cream is used in order to reduce the sensation of the needle, and for patients that are more sensitive to pain, a local anesthetic can be applied.
Lip injections aren’t just used to change the size of the lips. For those with an uneven appearance, it can be used simply to create symmetry with the mouth. The effects of the injections typically last anywhere from three to six months, and results are seen instantly. It’s a pretty convenient procedure since you can return to your normal activities immediately after, making it a great alternative to plastic surgery when you need to return to normal activities quickly.
