Lip augmentation has become easier to perform thanks to the newly advanced dermal fillers now available. Juvederm® is a line of dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid to plump the skin surface. The lips are extremely sensitive to wrinkling as we age and mature, and the perimeter of the lips suffers from age-related factors. Uneven or thinner lip lines, often referred to as smoker’s lines, are a cause for concern among many adults, even those who do not smoke. Juvederm Volbella® is a specially formulated injectable filler that treats these symptoms and adds much-needed volume to the lips, enhancing their shape in a positive manner.
Sensitivity of Lip Tissue
The lips cannot be treated with a dermal filler in the same way the facial skin is smoothed using acid-based injectables. The tissue beneath the lip skin is rather moist and contains tissues that hold water in place, but aging adults often find that the structure of these tissues has mutated to such a degree that adding a dense filler actually causes bumpiness and can make the lip perimeter look worse than before.
Juvederm Volbella® is a special blend of several different hyaluronic acid particles, each of which having a specific molecular weight. Mixed with a thinner gel that is still highly malleable, this injectable is perfect for reshaping the lips, eliminating the fine line perimeter of the smoker’s lines appearance, and adding just the right amount of volume to make the lips look fuller and more youthful.
Performing Lip Augmentation
We never agree to perform any sort of lip enhancement without first consulting with the client. We want to examine the lips closely and determine whether a filler that attracts moisture will be sufficient to yield the desired results. We also want to make precise measurements of the lips, noting their width and their horizontal balance. This allows us to determine how much Juvederm Volbella® to use and where to inject it.
During the actual treatment session, the solution is skillfully injected into the preselected areas. The acid-based gel settles into the lower dermal layers and immediately begins to attract moisture. A typical treatment session usually takes only minutes to complete. The added volume won’t be noticeable immediately, but after a day or so, plumper, fuller lips with a more natural-appearing swoop are realized by the client.
Better Overall Results
This specially formulated version of Juvederm® works better at plumping the lips and creating natural-appearing lip lines than calcium hydroxylapatite filler compounds and other types of fillers.
