Your Age, Your Lips, Your Options
As we age, our lips thin and lose their fullness. We develop fine lines and wrinkles around the borders. The Vermillion Border, or the outline of the lip, becomes lost and our lipstick may bleed into the upper lip. The upper lip can lose its definition and become flat and unattractive. Even without aging we may not be happy with the shape, or fullness, of the lips due to heredity and sun damage.
Temporary Lip Fillers
Juvederm Vobella XC is the newest filler in the Juvederm family and the only FDA filler approved for lines around the Lips and fine lines in the lip to last up to one year. The finishing touch for natural lip enhancement.
Lip fullness can be enhanced with a variety of methods, including the SurgiSil PermalLip™ Implant, and hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like Restylane® and Juvéderm® XC Plus.
Restylane provides fuller more luscious lips. The swelling lasts for 2-3 days and there can be bruising lasting up to a week or more. The final appearance will be at about 3 to 4 days. Results last about 3-6 months and is a perfect "starter" filler for those who are worried about the results due to it's shorter longevity.
Juvederm can be a more subtle filler for those who want just a little fullness or can create a lot of fullness with up to 2 syringes! It lasts from 3-9 months depending on the person and like Restylane contains a 3% lidocaine solution, a numbing agent that makes both injections virtually painless.
Radiance has Diamond Status with Allergan, the makers of Juvederm, meaning we inject more Juvederm than most other practices in the United States.
The Vermillion Border definition can make lips appear slightly larger and can eliminate or soften the lines around the mouth. Our favorite products for this procedure are Restylane or Juvederm. These Hyaluronic acid fillers are injected into the line at the edges of the lip to bring out definition in the lip and eliminate lipstick from running up the lip. This can give your lips more definition and keep your lipstick from running adding a little or a lot of fullness as desired.
