Lip plumping has come a long way, Baby! Do you remember those tubes of special liquid that would give you “bee-sting” lips? We do! Lip plumping products still exist and remain as popular as ever. Some work by irritating the superficial tissues, while others dilate the blood vessels to increase blood flow. Still, other lip plumpers claim to increase collagen in the target tissue. Ah, to have Angelina’s lips! If you would like to add or restore volume to your lips, we suggest Volbella.
Volbella is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is a new member of the Juvederm family. Dermal fillers fall into a category of lip augmentation that sits between topical lip-plumping serums and full-blown lip implants. As such, injectable lip enhancement is ever-so-popular. Here are a few things you may not know about lip injections.
- Lip injections are customized to you. Your face, your Yes, it is common that people will bring in pictures to show us what they want to look like. But our goal is to create a work of art that looks natural and fitting to your personal structure. Remember, you want to look like you, only better!
- Don’t let the idea of pain keep you from loving your lips. There are several things that can be done to improve your lip-plumping experience. Volbella does have Lidocaine in its formulation, which should help. Also, you can apply ice to your lips shortly before your treatment to further improve your comfort level.
- Reversible results may not sound like something you want, but you just never know. Who wants to live with an overly-plump pout for 4 to 6 months if it does not make them feel like their most beautiful self? Do not worry if you fall into this category. A simple treatment with hyaluronidase can dissolve the hyaluronic acid in your soft tissues, resulting in a subtle appearance.
