What Does Lip Augmentation Accomplish?

Lip augmentation is a popular, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment to enhance the appearance of naturally thin or thinning, deflated lips with dermal fillers and neuromodulators for a plumper, more youthful look. As the lips help provide a balanced facial appearance, redefining the lip shape and restoring lost volume with lip augmentation can create a refreshed, natural look.

Lip augmentation rejuvenates and restores your appearance by reducing the effect of lines and wrinkles near the lips. Lip augmentation also addresses fine lines around the mouth that typically appear due to lifestyle choices, such as sun exposure or smoking. The procedure requires no downtime and can be administered in a quick treatment session.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are an effective method of increasing or restoring lip volume and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the lips. Most lip fillers contain hyaluronic acid to promote collagen production, improving the overall appearance of the lips over time. Typically, lip augmentation with dermal fillers can provide immediate results that last for up to 12 to 18 months.

Lip fillers can help refresh your youthful appearance by addressing wrinkles or volume loss in the lips and perioral area. Dr. Daugherty offers these lip fillers:

  • Juvéderm® Ultra XC
  • Juvéderm® Volbella
  • Restylane® Kysse
  • Restylane® Silk

Botox® Lip Flip

The Botox® Lip Flip is a popular lip enhancement that uses neuromodulators, like Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®, to prevent repetitive muscular movements. By treating the upper lip and corners of the mouth, the muscles relax and allow the lips to curl outward, creating a plumper appearance and more defined shape for up to three to six months.

 

What Are the Benefits of Lip Fillers?

The signs of aging can negatively affect our appearance, confidence, and sense of overall wellness. As the lips age, they can lose volume, leaving you with a deflated and unbalanced facial appearance. With no downtime, lip augmentation can help plump your lips and restore your more youthful look to help you regain confidence in your appearance.

Lip augmentation can help improve the appearance of your lips by:

  • Restoring volume to provide fuller, plumper lips
  • Redefining your natural-looking shape
  • Reducing the signs of aging by smoothing lines around the lips
  • Tightening the skin around the lips

 

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Lip Augmentation?

Dr. Daugherty recommends candidates for Louisiana lip augmentation should:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Be non-smokers or willing to quit
  • Live a healthy lifestyle
  • Not be pregnant or nursing
  • Have no history of neuromuscular diseases
  • Have a positive outlook and realistic expectations
  • Understand the procedural risks
