Natural Looking Lip Injections
Things you need to know about Dermal Filler Product Choice & Results
Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, are injectable substances designed to add volume to targeted areas of the face. In the context of lip augmentation/enhancement, these fillers are used to enhance lip volume, definition, and symmetry. The primary component of a product such as Juvederm is hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally present in the body that contributes to skin hydration and elasticity.
There are many different products (types) of Dermal Fillers that can be used in the Lips. Each product has different qualities that are important to review before deciding which may be best for you. All of the product choices on the market that can be used for Lip Enhancement are:
- Juvederm Family: Ultra XC, Ultra XC Plus, Vollure, Volbella (Juvederm also owns Botox)
- Revance RHA: 1, 2, 3, 4 (Revance also owns Daxxify)
- Restylane Family: Kysse, Refyne, Lyft (Restylane also owns Dysport)
- Revanesse Versa
Each of these products offers different volumes and length of time they last. Along with that, the cost of each of these products is very different. For instance, Juvederm is often the most expensive product and Versa is often the cheapest.
Why does the product matter?
When it comes to products they will effect three different things:
1. How long the product last (Restylane Kysse last longer than Restylane Lyft)
2. How much volume per syringe (each product has a different volume associated with it)
3. What is the consistency of the product (RHA is the softest product on the market, which is perfect for the lips)
These companies make many different products, Juvederm makes about 7, Restylane makes about 9, Revance RHA makes 4, Versa has one, etc. They do this to give your injector tools in their tool box to choose the best product to help you achieve your goals.
Many Med Spas will only carry one line of dermal filler products. This is because it is expensive to buy the products in general and many times injectors are trained with only one product. The techniques to inject Sculptra are very different from the techniques used to inject other products.
What kind of results do each of these products give?
If a high quality product such as RHA, Juvederm or Restylane is injected into the lips you can expect results that will last longer than low quality products on the market. With that being said it is important to know that:
- Overall Results
Are all delivered from the injector. Not the product. That is why it is of the highest importance to go to an injector that has been practicing correct methods for several years.
As far as product choice. We always take your individual goals into mind. It takes years of practice with each product to understand how it truly works. At Aesthetic Med Studio, we always carry every product on the market along with having years of on going high level training so that we can help deliver the perfect result for you.
We aren’t big fans of Versa. In our experience, it lasts less time than other products on the market, it has a very high tendency to ‘ball up’ in the lips, and can at times be stiff. It is a cheap product (compared to the rest) and it has a tendency to act that way.
Why choose Dermal Fillers for your Lip Enhancement at Aesthetic Med
One of the key reasons individuals opt for dermal fillers in the lips is the ability to achieve a subtle and natural-looking enhancement. Rather than drastic changes, a skilled practitioner can use fillers to accentuate the natural beauty of the lips, providing a plumpness that appears inherent rather than artificially created.
Dermal fillers offer a high level of customization, allowing individuals to tailor their results based on personal preferences. Whether aiming for a slight enhancement or a more noticeable change, the flexibility of dermal fillers ensures that each treatment is uniquely adapted to the patient's desires. We love personalizing lips, along with other features of the face. One of our biggest goals is to help you achieve the look you were going for. Wether that is the Russian Lip Technique, a subtle boost, crafting symmetry or anything else, we can do it.
Lips tend to lose volume and definition with age, contributing to the overall aging process. Dermal fillers can effectively restore a more youthful appearance by replenishing lost volume and smoothing out fine lines around the lips, creating a rejuvenated and refreshed look.
Compared to surgical procedures, dermal filler treatments typically involve minimal downtime. Many individuals appreciate the convenience of achieving desired results without the extended recovery periods associated with more invasive interventions.
How Aesthetic Med Studio Achieves a Natural Look:
Precision in Application:
The success of achieving a natural look with dermal fillers heavily relies on the skill and precision of the practitioner. Experienced professionals understand facial anatomy and symmetry, ensuring that the filler is applied judiciously to create balanced and harmonious results.
Hyaluronic Acid Synergy:
Juvederm and RHA composition closely mimics the hyaluronic acid naturally present in the body. This synergy ensures that the filler integrates seamlessly with the existing tissues, promoting a harmonious and natural appearance.
Juvederm is known for its gradual degradation over time. While the effects are long-lasting, the filler breaks down naturally, allowing for adjustments or re-treatments as needed. This feature contributes to the maintenance of a subtle and evolving natural look.
How Long Can You Expect Results to Last?
The longevity of Juvederm, RHA and Restylane results can vary from person to person based on factors such as metabolism, lifestyle, and the specific formulation used. On average, individuals can expect results to last anywhere from 6 months to a year. Regular maintenance appointments can help sustain the desired look over an extended period = the more you have your lips injected the correct way, the longer they will last.
Dermal fillers have revolutionized the approach to lip augmentation, offering a safe and effective method for achieving natural-looking results. Embracing the beauty of a subtle enhancement not only enhances physical appearance but also promotes self-confidence and well-being. Before considering any cosmetic procedure, it is crucial to consult with a qualified and experienced medical professional to ensure a personalized approach that aligns with individual goals and expectations.
