As our favorite celebrities, influencers, and models continue to have their lips plumped, lip augmentation has quickly become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. But lip augmentation isn’t just for the “glamorous” or elite; many women in as early as their 20s want fuller, more sensual lips. They often opt for a subtle lip augmentation to give their look a boost, while women in their 50s or 60s pursue lip augmentation to help treat thinning lips or smooth away the lines that form around the lips.
Lip injections don’t have to result in overinflated lips—even just a little filler can create a natural enhancement. Whether you’re hoping for the perfect pout or just wish your lips looked more like they did in your youth, at Ageless Aesthetics, Dr. Lisa McCoy has a lip enhancement option for you.
How Do Lip Fillers Work?
Before we get into the “how much,” it’s important to first understand the “how.” Dermal fillers are used in most lip augmentation treatments. Composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in our bodies, this gel-based volumizer smooths and plumps your pout while still looking and feeling natural. They can also be used to add volume back to the face where signs of aging have caused features to now appear hollow like underneath the eyes, the cheeks, or the jaw.
How To Choose The Right Formulation and Amount of Filler
Dr. McCoy uses only the best for her lip augmentations with Juvéderm Ultra XC® and Juvederm Volbella
- Juvéderm Ulta XC is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid gel that provides a subtle lift to the lips with results that can be seen immediately and last up to 6 to 12 months.
- Juvederm Volbella is FDA approved soft hyaluronic acid gel created to last 12-18 months. It is a very buttery and subtle way to enhance the lips. It uses V-cross technology, which is made to last longer.
When it comes to choosing the appropriate amount of plump for your pout, that ultimately comes down to your goals and the experience and skill set of your injector. Dr. McCoy has extensive training when it comes to the art of injectables, including both dermal fillers or Botox. More than that, Dr. McCoy also uses dermal fillers and Botox herself, which gives her a first-hand perspective and the added benefit of trusting and understanding the products she chooses to use.
During your consultation, you will discuss your goals and expectation with Dr. McCoy, and she will provide her honest and professional opinion on just the right amount of plumpness to give your pout so that you still look natural and radiant.
