As you get older, you may notice that your lips become thinner in appearance. You no longer have a full pout and instead, have a thin grimace when you smile. You may be able to recapture a fuller smile and make your lips look plumper by undergoing lip augmentation at Nuance Aesthetics. Learn how this procedure can be a simple solution for thinning lips or lips that have always been thinner than you’d like.
What is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is an outpatient cosmetic procedure during which a dermal filler called Juvederm Ultra XC® is skillfully injected into the lip area. This dermal filler contains hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in your body that can be used to fill out the volume of your thinning lips.
Why Undergo Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation can be a wise investment if you want your lips to look fuller and healthier. As you get older, your top lip in particular can thin out and become noticeably less full. When you do not want to have to pencil in a fuller top lip with lipstick, you may have your smile augmented with this filler treatment.
This procedure is popular with people who want fuller lips because it is relatively fast and simple. There is also only a minor risk of bruising as your lips heal, and the results from the augmentation can last for up to one year.
Further, when HA is used, you stand less of a chance of experiencing an allergic reaction to the dermal filler. Our practitioner can easily control the volume, shape and appearance of your lips and can adjust the fullness of your lips gradually throughout the procedure.
How is Lip Augmentation Done?
The procedure itself is straightforward. The filler is simply injected into the preselected areas. This non-surgical treatment is safe and has few side effects. Complications are minor and rare. Little to no downtime is involved, making it an extremely convenient treatment for people with busy schedules.
