An imbalance in lip symmetry can distort your entire face. Your nose and chin may appear larger than they actually are. Women with small, or thinner lips can achieve a more balanced facial look with a simple lip augmentation. Both the upper and lower lip can be corrected to give you a more proportionate appearance. Levy Dermatology offers several non-surgical treatments to enhance the size and shape of your lips.
When it comes to soft tissue fillers, we often recommend a product that uses hyaluronic acid because it is already found naturally within your body.
Juvederm® is a high-quality, FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler. With a quick 15-minute procedure, you’ll be able to hydrate and restore volume to your lips for up to a year with a single injection. Juvederm provides immediate natural-looking results for all skin types and colors. After your procedure, you may experience redness, swelling, or itching. You may want to consider Juvederm® if you’re looking for a long-term solution with minimal recovery time.
Volbella® is another hyaluronic acid based filler often used for lip augmentation. In Volbella®, the hyaluronic acid is slightly thinner giving you a plump look while maintaining a natural feel. Volbella® is FDA-approved as a dermal filler and can last 12-months. The gel-like injectable can be partially absorbed into your body after your procedure occasionally making a second treatment necessary. Results should be noticeable as redness and swelling dissipate around two-weeks after the treatment.
Both Volbella® and Juvederm® are great injectable options for a lip augmentation and are very similar in a lot of ways. Essentially, it comes down to the feeling that you want your lips to have.
When you come to Levy Dermatology, you can be assured you’re in good hands. Dr. Levy is an Allergan trainer and actually trains other doctors within his field the proper use of injectables and the unique qualities each product has to offer.
