The Perfect Pout: Lip Augmentation
These days, it’s all about the lips. Full lips add balance, harmony, and a youthful quality to the face. Smooth, voluminous lips tend to look healthy too. For those reasons, there is a significant demand for non-surgical lip-plumping treatments, especially here in NYC.
If you’re looking to enhance your pout, you have many safe and effective options. Below, you’ll find several of the latest lip filler innovations that we offer at JUVA Skin & Laser Center.
The Lip Flip
The Lip Flip is a newer way of administering BOTOX or Dysport to enhance the appearance of your pout. The technique involves injecting BOTOX near the lip line to gently roll it outward, or “flip” it, for a fuller look. It can be performed on your upper and lower lip line.
Visiting an experienced provider for this technique is crucial. Our highly-skilled injectors know how to administer the right amount of product to the superficial muscle layers. This level of care produces the desired aesthetic outcome without impacting muscle function.
BOTOX improves aesthetic concerns by relaxing facial muscles. Unlike fillers, BOTOX does not add volume to the treatment area. What makes the Lip Flip unique is that it creates the illusion of volume. Fillers can be used in conjunction with this treatment for an even fuller look.
Aphrodite Lip Treatment
If you want to address dry, flaky lips while adding a subtle boost of volume, consider the Aphrodite Lip Treatment. This lip-enhancing technique consists of administering micro-droplets of hyaluronic acid (HA) injections into your pout.
HA is a hydrating, water-retaining substance naturally present in the skin. Once injected, it nourishes and replenishes your lips. The added benefit of increased lip volume gives you a healthy and youthful look.
The treatment only takes 10 to 15 minutes. Best of all, results typically last anywhere from 9 months to a year.
Dr. Bruce Katz, the director of JUVA, is the first to use injectables for more than plumping. He is proud to bring this new treatment to patients at Juva Skin and Laser Center.
Juvéderm Volbella XC
Juvéderm Volbella XC is ideal for adding natural-looking volume to the lips. Additionally, it excels at improving the appearance of vertical lip lines, also known as smoker lines or lipstick lines.
This filler is part of the versatile and popular Juvéderm collection. NewBeauty voted Volbella as the best “natural” lip filler in 2019. The praise doesn’t stop there, as Allure bestowed the coveted Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award on the filler back in 2017.
Similar to Juvéderm, Restylane Silk is a hyaluronic acid filler. At JUVA, we often recommend HA fillers for lip augmentation. These fillers tend to produce smooth, natural-looking results.
For many patients, Restylane injections alone can achieve the desired results. In other cases, Perlane may be layered to create longer lasting results.
