Lip fillers are a type of cosmetic injectable used to enhance the volume and shape of the lips. They work by injecting a hyaluronic acid-based gel into the lips, which helps to plump them up and create a fuller appearance. At Luxe Medical Aesthetics we utilize the entire line of Restylane and Revanesse fillers.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to hydrate and plump the skin. When injected into the lips, it adds volume and enhances the natural shape of the lips. Both topical and injectable numbing are available to provide comfort during the procedure. The gel is typically injected using a very fine needle, and the procedure is relatively quick and straightforward.
The results of lip fillers are typically immediate, with most patients noticing a significant improvement in the fullness and shape of their lips right after the injection. The effects of the treatment typically last for several months, depending on the individual, after which the injections can be repeated to maintain the results.
The best candidates for lip filler are individuals who are looking to enhance the appearance of their lips by adding volume and definition. Candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the treatment.
Additionally, candidates should have sufficient lip tissue to support the injection, as lip filler may not be suitable for those with very thin lips. It is also important that candidates have a good understanding of the risks and potential side effects associated with lip filler, and are able to follow the aftercare instructions provided by their provider.
Overall, the best way to determine if lip filler is right for you is to consult with a qualified provider who can assess your individual needs and goals, and help you determine the best course of treatment for achieving the results you desire.
