There has never been a better time to receive lip enhancement procedures because there are more non-surgical options available to patients than ever before. With dermal fillers and injectables, patients can achieve instant or near-instant results in a matter of minutes, without the need for any downtime. However, there are still several options to choose from, so you’ll have to take a few things into consideration when planning your lip injection treatment.
Would You Like to Increase Lip Volume?
If your goal is enhancing the shape or size of the lips, you’ll want to choose a dermal filler treatment like Juvederm® or Restylane® Silk. These injectable products are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that enhances volume and skin hydration. When injected into the lips, patients will notice an instant increase in lip volume. These treatments can be a great way to address age-related volume loss or to simply enhance the lips. Plus, these treatments can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth to create a more youthful appearance. The results from these treatments typically last about a year or longer.
Would You Like to Address a Gummy Smile?
If you are self-conscious about revealing too much of your gums when you smile, you may benefit from a neurotoxin injectable like Botox® or Dysport®. These treatments relax the muscles in the mouth that are responsible for lifting your lip. It can take a few days for the formula to take effect, but most patients notice results in under a week. As the results take effect, your smile will be more subdued, revealing less of your gums. The results from these treatments typically last about four months.
