How It Works

WHAT ARE LIP FILLERS AND HOW DO THEY WORK?

Lip fillers are the ideal way to restore or add volume and plumpness to the lips. They are semi-permanent solutions that are injected into the lips that have lost their shape, volume or elasticity. JUVÉDERM® lip fillers are based on hyaluronic acid which is actually sugar that is already found in the body. This selection of lip fillersis specifically designed to deliver the best results – a natural look of enhanced lips.

In a lip filler procedure, the solution is injected into the soft tissue of the lips and the results are fuller, smoother and more contoured lips and the area around them. JUVÉDERM® lip fillers are specifically designed to create a youthful appearance of the lips and since they contain natural ingredients they keep the natural look, movement and feel of the lips. During the lip filler procedure, the injected hyaluronic acid combines with the water in the skin and as a result, enhances lip volume and smooths lip lines.

WHAT DO LIP FILLERS TARGET?

As the skin gets older it loses its volume because of the reduced production of elastin fibers, collagen and hyaluronic acid that support the skin and make it strong. Injectable lip fillers lower the signs of aging and effectively enhance the lips and the skin around them.

When hyaluronic acid starts to decrease, wrinkles and fine lines start to appear and the lips lose their fulness. As the lips become thinner, they lose volume and lack definition.

When lips lose their definition, lip fillers are used to define and outline them again. This treatment is called Lip Border enhancement and it is also perfect for patients who are getting lip lines (smoker lines). After the lip fillers treatment lips return their original shape and restore lost volume.

LIP BODY

In some cases, patients are satisfied with the shape of their lips and they just wish to add more volume to the lip body. Lip fillers are ideal for lip body enhancement because they make lips look more hydrated. This is just a subtle change in lips’ appearance. Lip fillers can also make a more dramatic change and make the lips fuller and more enhanced. After the treatment lips still, look natural and every movement of the lips is preserved.

PHILTRUM COLUMNS

They represent raised vertical columns that go from the peaks of the upper lip to the nose. Lip fillers can be used to enhance the shape of Philtrum columns. This treatment brings back the youthful and well-supported area of the upper lip. The skin that surrounds the lips provides support for them. So, treating lower face areas with lip Fillers can be also considered in order to fully enhance lip appearance.

CUPID BOW LIPS

This is a V-shaped contour in the upper lip center that makes the two peaks and bow-shaped upper lip. Lip Fillers can be used to enhance the Cupid Bow and shape the upper lip a little better. This treatment can also be used to contour the flat upper lip.

LIP FILLERS CAN BOOST THIN LIPS

Many patients consider lip augmentation in order to solve the issue of having thin lips. Lip fillers provide fuller, more voluminous lips that still look natural.

Lips can gradually become thinner because of the loss of proteins such as collagen and elastin – they are in charge of plumping the skin around the lips. However, as the skin matures these proteins become less productive so lips don’t look full as before.

Also, lips can start to get thinner because of lifestyle or environmental influences. The skin around the lips can start to look tired, aged or dehydrated. One more reason is genetics – something that can’t be escaped.

Non-surgical lip augmentation can solve the issue of thin lips quickly and effectively. Lip fillers injections can change the shape and size of thin lips and make them appear youthful, luscious and defined again.

LIP FILLERS SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF GUMMYSMILE

A gummy smile means that more gums than preferred are showing when people smile. A lot of patients wish to have amore proportional smile – less gum more teeth. A gummy smile can be the cause of the way that the teeth grow, they may be shorter so the gum covers more teeth than it should. Also, this condition can be caused because the facial muscles and the upper lip lift higher when people smile.

Lip fillers injections can be a perfect aesthetic treatment for reducing gummy smiles. This treatment can increase the size of the lips especially the upper ones. As a result, the enhanced upper lip covers more gum when patients smile.
