The eyes may be the window to the soul, but your lips can provide information about your sensuality and personality. Your eyes and lips are your most prominent facial features and full lips are often considered one of the most preferable characteristics of attractiveness. The aging process can cause lips to become thinner and some people are born with thin lips. Fortunately, there are non-surgical techniques to enhance your lips, add volume and remove the lines around them.
Temporary Lip Augmentation
Non-surgical solutions are available for lip augmentation and though the change is not permanent, it can help you decide whether or not you would like to have a permanent lip enhancement. Restylane® and Juvéderm® are injectables that can provide you with more voluptuous lips in a matter of minutes, and the results last for nearly a year.
The Juvéderm line of products has various formulas that are used to treat specific needs. It can be used to fill in the fine lines around the lips, also known as lipstick lines or smoker’s lines. It can also be used to add volume to the lips. The key ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body.
In its natural state, hyaluronic acid is found in the eyes and joints in high concentrations. Skin cells produce this substance to maintain moisture levels and hold and regulate water within the cells. It keeps cells from becoming waterlogged. As a filler, hyaluronic acid is used to restore volume and plump up areas with wrinkles and lines. Juvéderm Volbella is an injectable used for adding volume to thinning lips. It can also be used to soften the lines and wrinkles around the lips.
Restylane is another injectable used to plump up lips. This product is bulkier than Juvéderm and can be more difficult to mold. It also provides more consistent results without shifting or moving out of place after being injected. Restylane takes two to three days for full results to be achieved, and it lasts for around ten months.
