Whether you want to polish up your pout for Valentine’s Day or are just looking to kiss winter goodbye with a new look, you’re in luck. Lip augmentation is one of the fastest growing facial procedures in the United States, and for good reason. Gone are the days when the only option was collagen – there are now a variety of hyaluronic acid fillers that can be used to achieve the results you want.
There are many reasons for seeking lip enhancement options. Some of the most common causes are fine lines, improving the lip shape, offsetting changes that come with aging, and a desire for a more voluptuous look. Whatever the reason, a consultation is the first step to determining what will work best for you.
Juvederm is the workhorse of all hyaluronic fillers. It’s been used for years in lip enhancement, as well as the treatment of facial wrinkles. This product is a firmer option, is great for patients that have little structure to their lips, and lasts for up to a year.
Volbella is great for defining the lip line (and treating fine lines around the mouth). It is reported to last up to one year after injection. It creates a hydrated look in the lips, instead of a filled look. Its properties tend to make it less noticeable in 6-8 months than results from other products, so it could be considered “lip enhancement lite.”
Last, but not least, is Vollure. This soft filler is reported to last up to 1 ½ years after injection. Since it can be used in multiple areas, there is no waste if you want a subtler lip and don’t need the full syringe there. This is Dr. Poulter’s “go-to“ filler for almost all applications in the face – especially in lip enhancement.
It is very important you seek the care of an experienced, trained professional for your lip enhancement. This is your face, which all will see. Dr. Poulter has 25 years of filler experience and holds the Master Injector designation from Allergan for the advanced training he has done.
