Is Juvederm Only For Lips

When it comes to lip augmentation, Juvederm Volbella is a popular choice for patients because it provides subtle looking results.  Juvederm Volbella is a smooth, lightweight filler that is specially formulated to augment the lips and fill in vertical lip lines. But is Juvederm only for the lips?

Juvederm Collection Of Fillers

Juvederm is a collection of facialfillers that are used to reduce tell-tale signs of aging.  Theyconsist of hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body and helps skin tissue remain plump and moisturized.

Is Juvederm Only For The Lips

There are different products in the Juvederm collection, and they are designed to treat different areas of the face.   In addition to plumping the lips, Juvederm can also soften wrinkles and folds (Juvederm Ultra Plus), and add volume to the cheeks (Juvederm Voluma).

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC

Juvederm Ultra Plus reduces the appearance of wrinkles and folds, especially nasolabial folds and marionette lines.  Nasolabial folds run from the nose to the corner of the mouth, while marionette linesextend from the corner of the mouth down to the chin.  The results of Juvederm Ultra Plus typically last 6-12 months.

Juvederm Voluma XC

Juvederm Voluma XC corrects age-related volume loss in the cheeks.  Voluma is injected deep into the tissues to plump sagging cheeks, and provide a subtle lift to the mid-face area.  Juvederm Volumaenhances facial contours by restoring volume that’s lost with age.  The results can last 2 years or more.

Lip Augmentation: What are my options?

Lip Augmentation: What are my options?

Are you thinking of having lip augmentation but unsure about your options?   There are several treatments available for achieving fuller, more luscious lips, including dermal fillers, fat grafting, and lip implants.  

Why lip augmentation?

Lips become thinner with age and lip augmentation increases the fullness of the lips, and gives them a more youthful appearance. The lips are one of the most outstanding facial features and that’s why fuller, shapelier lips enhance facial beauty.

Lip augmentation options

  • Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are the fillers most often used to plump the lips.  The fillers are injected into specific parts of the lips, to add volume and definition.   Dermal fillers are a temporary lip enhancement treatment as they typically last 1 year.

  • Fat grafting

Lip augmentation fat grafting is a process in which fat is removed from one part of the body (such as the abdomen or hips), and transferred to the lips, after being purified.  The fat grafts are injected into the lips, to achieve the desired fullness and definition.  Since fat grafting uses the patient’s own tissue, there is little risk of an infection or allergic reaction.   The results of fat grafting can last up to 5 years.

  • Lip implants

Lip augmentation with implants is a procedure in which implants made of soft silicone or dermal tissue, are used to add volume to the lips.  The implants are inserted into the lips through small incisions made in the corners of the mouth.  Lip implants are a long-lasting option for lip enhancement.
