Lip augmentation is a procedure that gives you fuller lips without the need for cosmetic surgery. During the early 19th century, lip fillers were accomplished with fat injections, although they weren’t used for cosmetic purposes. Instead, they helped people who suffered from injuries or facial deformities. Today, lip augmentation is achieved by injectable dermal fillers where you’re back to your regular routine the same day.
There are several fillers on the market to choose from, including Juvederm, Restylane, Revanesse, and Belotero. They all rely on hyaluronic acid to attract and bind water to keep your skin hydrated and contoured to enhance the shape and volume of your mouth.
Just Aesthetic Nursing performs lip augmentation in 30-minutes or less. We use a needle or cannula and a topical anesthetic to make the process as comfortable as possible. Although the procedure is relatively pain-free, it’s normal to experience some swelling and bruising afterward.
Is There a Difference Between BOTOX and Lip Fillers?
Yes! Unlike dermal fillers, BOTOX is a type of bacteria that has been isolated and purified to inject and help freeze muscles safely. BOTOX normally treats fine lines and wrinkles or address excessive sweating under your arms, hands, and feet. Dermal fillers can also help address wrinkles and help plump your lips. Depending on the goals for your appearance, our team of aesthetic nurses may suggest fillers for your lip and BOTOX to address wrinkles or other issues near your mouth.
Is Lip Augmentation Expensive?
Lip augmentation is a reasonable investment in your appearance, boosting your confidence and making the aging process as natural as possible. Prices will vary depending on the procedure you want, where you live, and the type of clinic you use. However, prices should start around $700 with a reputable cosmetic team. Keep in mind that not everyone can administer fillers for lip augmentation. Licensed medical professionals, including aesthetic nurses, can legally offer fillers. Our team studies under the best aesthetic doctors, regularly update our knowledge and are passionate about providing the best results possible.
How Long Does Lip Augmentation Last?
Lip augmentation offers long-lasting results of around 12-months or more. Your aesthetic nurse may suggest minor touch-ups as part of your treatment plan to maintain your results. You can also help your fillers last as long as possible by staying out of the sun or wearing sunscreen, refraining from smoking or alcohol, staying hydrated, and getting more rest.
How Should I Prepare for Fillers?
Lip fillers are a simple procedure that just about anyone can enjoy, but there are a few things you can do to make the process easier. Avoid any blood thinners when possible, which also includes aspirin and ibuprofen. Vitamin E, primrose oil, topical retinol and retinoid products, waxing, bleaching, and tweezing are also discouraged. Let your aesthetic nurse know to discuss potential issues if you’re currently on medication.
Avoid Aggressive Lip Augmentation Providers
Aesthetic medicine is ideal for cosmetic enhancements without the need for surgery. However, they are not for everyone. Your provider should listen to your needs, goals, and concerns to assess the best option for you. Demanding providers who pressure you to book a service should be avoided. At Just Aesthetic Nursing, we exercise a customer-focused philosophy to ensure you’re always comfortable with the process.
