The appearance of our lips is affected by aging and by a number of outside factors, including sun exposure and lifestyle choices. All of these factors reduce our skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid, a substance that keeps skin plump. This results in thin and drooping lips that have lost their volume and definition.

If you have thin lips and want to get lip enhancement without undergoing surgery, you will be pleased to find out that you can enhance your lips with Juvederm Ultra. This injectable dermal filler makes your lips look more alluring, creating results that look and feel natural.

Juvederm Ultra: A Perfect Choice for Lip Enhancement

Juvederm Ultra is a minimally invasive non-surgical lip-enhancement option that has been approved by the FDA. It is a temporary lip filler that is made of hyaluronic acid. The unique composition of this treatment option allows for specific corrections and does not make your lips look bulky or fake.

It is created using state-of-the-art technology and is specially engineered to smooth away lipstick lines, also known as smoker’s lines. These vertical lines form around the lips and mouth. When these lines are removed, the result is smooth skin and a more youthful appearance.

If you are looking for a subtly enhanced look for your lips, Juvederm Ultra is the perfect filler. It defines the natural contours of your lips to accentuate their appearance. It also makes the lips look naturally plump.

What Is the Juvederm Ultra Treatment Procedure Like?

The first step in your Juvederm Ultra treatment process is consulting with Dr. Lam, who will explain the details of the procedure, including preparation and aftercare. To determine whether this injectable is right for you, Dr. Lam will examine your lips and the skin around your mouth. He will also analyze your medical history, including any allergies you have and any medications you are currently taking.

During the treatment, Dr. Lam starts by marking intended injection sites around your lips. These markings serve as a guide to make the treatment more precise. After this, Dr. Lam will inject the Juvederm Ultra into those designated spots. Once the injections are complete, he will massage those areas to spread the formula evenly.

The procedure usually only takes around 20 to 30 mins to perform. Juvederm Ultra contains a local anesthetic called lidocaine, which temporarily numbs the treatment region in order to minimize any discomfort that you would otherwise feel while being injected.

After Your Juvederm Ultra Treatment

After the Juvederm Ultra injection procedure is complete, avoiding sun exposure will be advised for the next 24 hours. It will be important to keep your lips free from any cosmetics during this time. This will help your lips heal, since there is sometimes a small amount of bruising and swelling present.

Lip enhancement using Juvederm Ultra can last six months to a year. After this time, you may be able to return for a maintenance treatment in order to preserve your results.
