Many people use Juvederm to treat loss of volume in the face or to lift and fill their cheeks, but there are other reasons to choose to use it, this includes using it to get plumper and fuller lips.
Just as we lose collagen in our faces as we get older and we get wrinkles. We also lose collagen in our lips and our lips shrink and get smaller as we age.
Whether it being that you have thin lips and would like fuller lips or loss of volume in the lips due to age, we can treat you and get to the result you are looking for.
There is a topical numbing cream that can be applied to the lip area15-20 minutes prior to your procedure.
A micro fine needle is used to inject the Juvederm in to the lips in small aliquots.
The procedure takes approximately 20min
It is important to have a discussion with your doctor as to what your desired goals are and expectations. Sometimes patients bring a photograph of lips they like. Realistically,
not everybody can have Angelina Jolie’s Full voluptuous lips.
At the Face Clinic, we aim to please all our patients but as well it is important to be realistic.
You can only enhance what you have, so if you start with very thin lips, you may end up with normal lips and not very full ones.
Everyone is individual, but most patients only require one or two syringes of dermal fillers.
After the injections, the area will be massaged to make certain that no bumps are present in the lips. Ice will be placed on the area to take down and prevent and limit excess swelling.
It is possible that you may have slight swelling or bruising at the injection site. The bruising may last anywhere from a few days to a week. The swelling may last a day or two.
It is best to avoid alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil and vitamin E one week prior to the injections. These substances thin the blood and make you bruise more easily.
The best part of the treatment is that you will see results immediately. Though we recommend a follow up consultation in 1-2 weeks to make sure you are happy with the result.
Yes, you can apply lipstick or lip gloss immediately after your treatment.
Yes, you may resume your normal every day activities and even exercise.
Skin fillers in the lips can last anywhere from 3months to 6months.
Many people who get skin fillers are also interested in having another facial treatment, something like a laser treatment, a chemical peel or microdermabrasion. We recommend waiting a week after your treatment before getting any of these additional treatments.Get In Touch
