Full, sensuous lips are a timeless, attractive look. That is why JUVÉDERM lip filler at our London, Ontario practice is so popular. As the number of lip filler options increase, it’s difficult for patients to know which one is best for their needs. JUVÉDERM has an established reputation for creating the natural-looking lip enhancement results that patients want.
But even within the JUVÉDERM product family, there are options for lip augmentation. Additionally, we offer other lip fillers that might work best for certain patients. Deciding which lip injections are best for our London, ON, patients depends on their anatomy, desires, and goals.
Why Do You Want Lip Fillers?
Not everyone is genetically blessed with naturally full lips. In the age of Instagram and posting selfies on social media platforms, many of our DermEffects patients say that having just the right pout is one of their goals.
But perking up naturally thin lips is not the only reason for getting lip fillers. As with other areas of the face that lose volume as we age, the lips are no different. Our bodies produce less and less collagen and hyaluronic acids—the fundamental building blocks of tight, hydrated skin that create the youthful appearance we want. Dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM and TEOSYAL Kiss® contain hyaluronic acid, providing the lips with a fresh, dewy appearance that evaporates with age.
Which Lip Fillers Work Best?
The collection of JUVÉDERM fillers includes several that can be used for lip augmentation. For younger patients who may be getting lip fillers for the first time, the choice may be different than someone who is a bit older and has the first signs of fine lines developing around the mouth.
The options we offer at our practice include:
JUVÉDERM Ultra XC: Slightly softer than other JUVÉDERM fillers, Ultra XC produces excellent results after only a single treatment, replenishing volume in thin and fading lips. The results typically last 6 months to a year. Like most fillers, Ultra is pre-mixed with a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the injections.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA™: Designed specifically as lip filler, VOLBELLA’s unique, thin gel adds shape and volume and creates a desirable cupid’s-bow contour at the top of the lips. It’s especially useful for patients who want subtle results and a more natural appearance. It’s also effective for reducing “smoker’s lines” that develop around the lips. Touch-up treatments every 6 months or so can maintain the results.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™: For lips that need more structure and shape, VOLLURE is a good option. It’s also more durable than other lip fillers, with results lasting up to 18 months.
Other Lip Fillers
Lip augmentation patients at our practice have other options besides JUVÉDERM products. Each of the fillers on our menu of options has unique benefits.
Teosyal Kiss, for example, is designed to maintain its soft form in the lips for a longer time frame and is a great choice for patients who want to improve the contour of their lips. Saypha® Volume, which can last up to 9 months, also enhances the shape and fullness of the lips.
I often recommend combining lip fillers with other nonsurgical treatments, such as BOTOX® injections, which can enhance your overall appearance.
