Wish you had plumper lips? Don’t we all! Fortunately, there’s a way to achieve this through dermal fillers. Juvéderm for lips is an especially great product to achieve the natural look you desire with very little filler added!
Lip Filler 101: What is it?
People seek lip filler treatments because they have thin lips and want a fuller appearance. They might also have vertical lip lines that are noticeable.
Lip filler is used for lip augmentation and for minimizing vertical lip lines. Lip fillers, like Juvéderm for lips, are a great way to boost your skin’s elasticity and plump up the volume to achieve a more youthful look.
Most lip-filling products are hyaluronic acid (HA) based. Juvéderm’s smooth-consistency gel for lips contains 90% HA. To achieve desired results, a minimal and precise amount of the HA-based gel is injected beneath the skin by a certified professional.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring sugar found in your body that delivers nutrients to the skin. Specifically, HA helps the skin retain moisture and softness while adding volume.
Since HA is already found in your body, it is generally well tolerated by the body when injected. HA naturally degrades over time as it is absorbed into the body.
Because it is a trusted product, glo Skin Spa confidently features Juvederm for lips.
Juvéderm is an FDA approved injectable gel that is injected directly into the lips. It will augment the lips, producing a fuller appearance and reducing vertical lip lines. Juvéderm is the #1 selling dermal filler product in the world.
Juvéderm for lips offers two formulations:
- Juvéderm® Ultra XC
Adds more fullness and plumps thin lips.
- Juvéderm Volbella® XC
Tailored to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines.
Less is more: You only need a little!
Coco Chanel didn’t just have a point about fashion. “Less is more” is sound advice when applied to how much lip filler to inject. It only takes a small amount of filler to get great results.
How much lip filler?
The amount of filler needed to achieve the natural look in a full set of lips differs from person to person. The amount depends on:
- Your age
- Lip size
- Amount of skin looseness
- Your aesthetic goals
Generally, however, one milliliter of lip filler provides a natural look. A milliliter is less than one teaspoon
After a 1-mL treatment of Juvéderm, lips look fuller but still natural. A 2-mL treatment makes the lips look fuller than what looks natural.
Bonus benefit! Another benefit of the lip filler treatment is that lines around the lips are less noticeable.
Key reasons to get a Juvederm lip treatment:
- Adds volume and a refreshed look to your lips
- Softens the appearance of vertical lip lines
- Most filler treatments take 30 minutes or less
- Results can last nine months to a year
- Juvéderm Volbella XC is a 2017 Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award Recipient
