Lovely, plump, youthful lips are appealing and attractive. If you inherited thinner lips, or see your lips thinning with age, lip augmentation with dermal fillers can be the perfect procedure – but the injections must be performed correctly. A filler is injected in the upper or lower lips, or both, to add subtle volume. Unsightly lip lines are smoothed, or a more defined “Cupid’s bow” created.
How does lip augmentation work?
You may have seen lip augmentations gone wrong, with results that appear overfilled and strange. Dr. Ardesh brings a fresh perspective to facial enhancements and performs lip augmentations that appear entirely natural. While plumper, fuller lips are attractive, an overfilled look is a distraction. Dr. Ardesh is a trainer for Allergan, the makers of Juvéderm, and uses the most advanced injection techniques for a superior result.
What filler is best for lip augmentation?
The scientists at Allergan have developed some of the best lip fillers available. The lip fillers include:
Juvéderm Ultra XC
This is a clear hyaluronic gel, injected into the lip structure. The formula contains lidocaine to numb the area, making the procedure more comfortable. The results are long-lasting, soft, and beautiful when the product is injected in the precise quantity needed to add volume and definition.
Juvéderm Volbella XC
Volbella is one of the latest generations of fillers developed by Allergan, and winner of the “Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough” award. This filler can create a very subtle, soft, natural-looking enhancement. The thin formula can fill unsightly vertical lip lines without producing a puffy appearance.
You have the option of lip implants to create more attractive lips – that last a lifetime. A surgical procedure can be performed to enhance upper, lower, or both lips. The implants are soft silicone with the “give” of natural lip tissue. With lip implants, your results are long lasting, with no retreatment necessary.
