Full, sensual lips are alluring and inspire kisses. Many women today want to add volume and improve the shape of their lips for a more youthful and attractive facial appearance. Our medical aestheticians perform our Denver lip augmentation procedures at Colorado Plastic Surgery Center with beautiful, long-lasting, natural-looking results.
How We Perform Lip Augmentation in Denver
Advanced hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as Juvéderm is the cutting-edge treatment for lip augmentation today. Injectable fillers provide an ideal method of enhancing the lips, but it requires skill and artistry to achieve beautiful, natural-looking results.
Adding volume is only one aspect of lip augmentation. We focus on improving the shape of the lips, enhancing a Cupid’s bow, or creating fuller lips with a natural, lovely pout. We take care to balance the proportions of the upper lip and lower lip to the mouth and the entire face.
What to Expect in a Lip Augmentation Procedure
Lip augmentation with dermal fillers is a quick, minimally-invasive procedure, performed in our private clinic. Some lip enhancement fillers contain lidocaine, and a topical numbing cream may be applied before our Denver lip injections are performed for a more comfortable treatment experience.
Your injector will carefully mark the areas to be injected in the lips and around the mouth. Using a very fine needle, she will then inject the filler into the treatment areas.
What Is Recovery Like after Lip Augmentation in Denver?
There is virtually no downtime after lip augmentation with dermal fillers. You may be given ice to control swelling. Most patients return to their usual activities immediately after treatment.
You may experience minimal swelling and bruising, which will subside in a few days. To protect your results, avoid direct sunlight, exercise, and high temperatures for the first few days after treatment.
How Long Do Results Last after Lip Augmentation with Dermal Fillers?
At Colorado Plastic Surgery Center, we provide long-lasting results with our lip augmentation in Denver using state-of-the-art, hyaluronic acid injectable fillers. How long the results last will depend upon the patient and the type of filler used in the treatment.
Juvéderm Volbella XC adds volume to the lips and smooths vertical lip lines around the mouth. This treatment typically lasts up to one full year before requiring re-treatment. Juvéderm Ultra XC, formulated to plump up thin lips and correct parentheses lines around the nose and mouth, can also last up to a year.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Lip Augmentation in Denver?
The lips play an important role in overall facial appearance. Fuller, shapelier, younger-looking lips can have a rejuvenating effect upon the entire face. You may be a good candidate for lip augmentation in Denver if you want to add volume, restore symmetry, or improve the shape of your lips.
What Do Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers Do for the Lips?
The most popular dermal fillers for lip augmentation today are made of a modified form of hyaluronic acid. This substance, which occurs naturally in the skin, attracts moisture and adds softness and volume.
In treatments skillfully performed by our team at Colorado Plastic Surgery Center, hyaluronic acid fillers are used to enhance the appearance of the lips by adding volume, shape and structure. Juvéderm fillers for lip augmentation are easy to experience as the lidocaine in the product, a local anesthetic, has a short-term numbing effect.
Benefits of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers for lip enhancement include:
- Control over the amount of lip volume
- Less post-procedure bruising
- Little risk of allergic reaction
- Gradual pace of treatment if desired
- Natural-looking, long-lasting results
