Lip augmentation is a non-surgical and non-invasive technique that involves using cosmetic injectables to enhance your lip contours. We use lip fillers in Virginia Beach to enhance the volume or shape of your lips, or we use Botox to make your them more voluminous. Our cosmetic providers select the ideal lip augmentation technique according to your unique goals and expectations. You can expect completely natural enhancements to the contours, shape, and size of your lips — no unwanted cosmetic results or complications.
Lip augmentation: enhance the contours of your lips with a few injections
We use two unique techniques for lip augmentation
Lip augmentation can be performed using two unique methods — dermal fillers or Botox. Both options are valid, but they produce slightly different results. Our cosmetic providers will highlight the unique advantages and drawbacks of both options, so you can make an informed decision. Below, we describe how lip augmentation works with dermal fillers and Botox.
Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm Ultra and Restylane Kysse, add volume underneath your soft tissues. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring and biocompatible gel that makes your skin look smoother and fuller, and it enhances your skin’s ability to retain moisture. When injected into the lips, hyaluronic acid fillers instantly make your lips look fuller and smoother. We can also contour your lips using hyaluronic acid injections.
Botox Lip Flip
Botox is typically associated with wrinkle correction, but it can also make your lips look more voluminous. Botox is a neurotoxin injection that can temporarily paralyze specific muscles in the body. When injected into targeted regions into the middle of the upper lip and the corners, it relaxes the muscles around the lips. Consequently, the upper lips relax and curl upwards and outwards. We use this lip filler in Virginia Beach to make your lips more voluminous and prominent.
Lip augmentation can do the following:
- Enhance the volume of your lips
- Improve the shape or symmetry of your lips
- Make your lips look smoother and more youthful
- Fill out the lipstick lines around the lips
- Shape your lips according to your expectations
Benefits of lip augmentation treatments:
- No incisions, implants, or scars
- Personalized according to your goals
- Minimal post-treatment side effects
- Negligible risk of complications
- Completely natural results
- No downtime
Your one-on-one personalized lip augmentation consultation
Your treatment of lip fillers in Virginia Beach starts with a personalized one-on-one consultation with our master injectors. Everyone is unique and has unique expectations. Our cosmetic providers will carefully examine your lips, discuss your goals, and review your health history to identify the ideal lip augmentation technique for you — dermal fillers or Botox lip flip.
Your lip augmentation experience
The cosmetic provider will apply a mild numbing gel on your lips to make them numb. The chosen dermal fillers or Botox will be injected into targeted areas on your lips using ultrafine needles. If you opt for a Botox lip flip, the cosmetic provider will inject Botox into the Cupid’s bow and the corners of the lips.
Minimal post-treatment side effects
Lip augmentation may lead to mild post-treatment redness, swelling, discomfort, itching, and bruising around the treatment areas. The side effects should dissipate within a few days.
Resume your daily activities immediately
Lip augmentation doesn’t involve any downtime, so you can resume your daily activities and work immediately. However, you should avoid strenuous workouts for a day or two.
Results depend on the techniques used
The onset and longevity of the results depend on the chosen lip augmentation technique. If you opt for lip augmentation with fillers, the results will appear instantly and last for up to 9 months with optimal treatment. If you opt for the Botox lip flip, the results may appear gradually over 2 weeks and last for up to 4 months.
