As we age, our faces begin to lose volume – leading to the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles. This includes our lips. Lips start to lose definition, look less plump, and fine lines around our mouths start to form. Two popular treatments to help restore youthfulness to our lips are lip filler and the Lip Flip. But how do you know which treatment is right for you? Check out our breakdown below. Renu Medispa will customize your lip augmentation based on your unique facial structure and personal goals. We have various lip injection techniques and many different fillers to choose from. Our experts will assess your lips and goals to make recommendations to give you the lips of your dreams.
It is no surprise that there can be many reasons why we might be dissatisfied with how our lips look. Age and genetics both play major roles in how our lips look. But we provide a safe and effective way to achieve your aesthetic goals: lip fillers. If you want fuller, plumper lips, this treatment may be what you want.
What Are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are a non-surgical way to enhance the shape and size of your lips. And they avoid all the negative aspects of surgery while providing life-changing results. We can build upon your natural features by strategically injecting fillers into targeted areas to deliver stunning results. In addition, we use only the highest-quality lip fillers to maximize patient satisfaction and safety.
Fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane work to treat these fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of volume in the face. Both Juvederm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule found in our bodies that helps restore skin moisture and volume. When the filler is injected directly into the lips and vermillion border, it creates volume. In addition, it brings back the definition, leading to a fuller, poutier lip while producing a soft, natural appearance.
Alternatively, a new popular cosmetic treatment for the lips is the Lip Flip. The Lip Flip uses Botox or Dysport – which are neuromodulators (yes – the same Botox you get in your forehead!), to relax the orbicularis muscle in the top lip. By injecting Botox or Dysport in this muscle, the top lip is encouraged to relax and ‘flip’ outwards to give the illusion of a subtle, fuller lip. It is a popular choice for those wanting to correct a gummy smile, or for someone who doesn’t want to add volume. Very often, clients opt for a combination of Lip Filler & Lip Flip depending on the desired look and outcome.
Are Lip Fillers Right for Me?
If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your lips, then this treatment could be the boost you need. With hyaluronic acid fillers, you can enhance various aspects of your lips to help bring out the true you. There are no incisions and no lengthy recovery times. You can be any age and still benefit from the added volume or shape that fillers can provide.
You might benefit from this treatment if you want to enhance the following aspects of your lips.
Lip Filler Results
One of the benefits of lip fillers is that they are a quick treatment. You will be in and out of the office in no time, and after, you can return to your daily life almost immediately. However, even though the process is so fast, your results will last for months.
How Filler Works
The filler is carefully and strategically injected with ultrafine needles into your target areas. There is no need for incisions or any other surgical aspect. No scarring and no anesthesia are needed. However, local numbing cream is available to provide maximum patient comfort.
Most patients report seeing noticeable results for about half a year. But many patients see results for up to a year or more. The duration of your results will depend on several factors. These include:
- Activity level
- Lifestyle and habits
- Amount of filler used
Is There a Recovery Period?
Unlike cosmetic surgery, there is virtually no downtime for fillers. In most cases, you can leave the office and return to your routine immediately. If there is any discomfort, you can lightly apply an ice pack. Also, we advise avoiding lipstick for at least a couple of days to ensure you don't put too much pressure on your lips.
For some patients, there can be minor bruising or swelling. However, these both fade within a few days. If you have any concerns along the way, we are available to answer any questions.
Once your body breaks down your filler, you can always come in for a touchup. One of the advantages of lip fillers is that you can try out slightly new looks with each session, further customizing your lip enhancement to meet your aesthetic values.
Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers for Lips
Compared to older methods of lip enhancement, hyaluronic acid fillers come with a range of benefits. These include:
- Better volume control
- Works with gradual treatment
- Minimal bruising
- Lower likelihood of an allergic reaction
- Longer-lasting results
Altogether, hyaluronic acid has proven to be the best option for lip enhancement. Furthermore, all our fillers at Renu Medispa come from quality-controlled suppliers, so you can count on only the best.
