Plump lips and the perfect pout have quickly increased in popularity in the past decade and we are happy to help you achieve your cosmetic goals with lip enhancement at Cerulean Medical Institute. Lip augmentation with fillers is a great option for many patients since benefits include no surgical measures and so much more!
What Are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are a type of hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can plump your lips and add natural looking fullness. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that keeps it hydrated, plump, and firm. When injected into the lips, hyaluronic acid makes the perfect substance for natural lip enhancement. At Cerulean Medical Institute, lip fillers are always customized by measuring your lip anatomy and matching it with your lip needs and goals.
While there are many kinds of dermal fillers, only a select few are safe for use in the lips considering the structure of their formula and how they interact in the skin. We offer different types of soft tissue fillers that are ideal lip fillers:
- Juvéderm Volbella gives a natural looking lip enhancement
- Teosyal Kiss uses cross-linking to create a sturdy filler for plump lips
- Belotero Lips provides lip contour and fullness
How Can I Benefit from Lip Fillers?
There are many ways to benefit from lip fillers! These are a few of our favorite benefits that you can expect from lip enhancement at Cerulean Medical Institute:
1. Increased Fullness
Full lips can enhance your appearance if you feel self-conscious about thin lips and want an added plumpness for your smile. This increased fullness is created naturally with lip injections of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. This substance binds to the water molecules in the skin, for added plumpness and moisturization.
2. Youthful Appearance
Natural looking fuller lips conveys youthfulness and attractiveness. This in turn results in feeling better with improved wellbeing and self-confidence. Lip enhancement with lip fillers balance the proportions of the lips whilst respecting the lip golden ratios and your chin and nasal anatomy. Improved lip pout, contour, hydration and light reflex are some of the many highlights of lip injections by Dr. Chetty in Kelowna.
3. Quick Recovery
There is virtually no recovery time after receiving filler in the lips so you can get back to your normal routine immediately. The only thing you should avoid for the first 48 hours is strenuous exercise since this could cause increase swelling and bruising.
4. Customizable Results
It is much easier to customize the results of filler in the lips than it is to alter a lip implant after lip augmentation surgery. You can easily determine whether you want a more natural lip enhancement or the famous pout of celebrities like Kylie Jenner with lip fillers.
5. Treat Signs of Aging
Adding volume to the lips not only adds fullness but also smooths away lines and wrinkles on the lips and around the mouth. Vertical lip lines (also called smoker’s lines) can become more prominent as the skin ages, collagen production slows, and volume is lost. By adding volume to the lips with fillers, you can smooth away these lines for a rejuvenated, youthful appearance. Lip fillers are also often used to treat congenital lip deformities, genetically thin lips and gummy smiles.
6. Gradual Results
The results of lip fillers develop gradually as the hyaluronic acid settles into the skin. This is a great benefit for patients who have thin lips and are unsure how they would look with fuller lips. You can start with subtle augmentation and continue to add filler (up to a safe level) until you see the desired fullness and your ideal results.
7. Lip Fillers Results Can be Reversed
If you’ve previously received lip fillers and want to remove them, there is no surgery necessary to reverse the results. An enzyme called hyaluronidase can be injected into the lips to break down the added hyaluronic acid and restore the natural volume and shape of your lips.
