Lip Augmentation San Antonio
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
Lip fullness can be enhanced with a variety of methods, including the SurgiSil PermalLip™ Implant, and hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like Restylane, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Silk, Belotero , Juvederm Volbella and Juvederm® XC Plus. Below several fillers were combined over time to enhance and shape the lips including Juvederm Ultra Plus and Juvederm Volbella.
Restylane and Juvederm Ultra Plus provide fuller more luscious lips. The swelling can last 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 6-12 months.
Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Volbella, Restylane Silk, Belotero, and Restylane Refyne can be more subtle fillers for those who want just a little fullness or can create a lot of fullness with up to 2 syringes! They last from 3-12 months depending on the filler and on the person and like contain a lidocaine solution, a numbing agent, that makes injections virtually painless.
Radiance San Antonio has Top 500 Status with Allergan, the makers of Juvederm, meaning we inject more Juvederm than 98% of other practices in the United States.
Lip Filler Examples
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 Silk, Restylane Refyne, Juvederm Volbella, or Juvederm Ultra. 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 restore structure to a fading border plus add a little or a lot of fullness as desired. PLUS these products can be used to enhance the cupids bow and the philtrum ridges making a perfect pout. Both of the areas are lost as we age and flatten and are often forgotten by most injectors when reshaping lips!
Permanent Lip Implants
Radiance offers the most advanced and natural permanent lip implant from the SurgiSil company. This implant is easy to insert in the office under local anesthesia, and is done in less than an hour.
It has undergone extensive testing to ensure its safety. If you are tired of the pain, expense, and trouble of lip injections every 6 to 12 months, this may be your perfect solution.
Permalip is a soft solid silicone implant much like a breast implant. It is so soft and natural that no one can tell you have it in. It moves when your mouth moves and it undetectable by touch or eye.
The implant comes in many different lengths and fullness sizes so you can be just the size you want.
