Lip Injections for Fuller Lips
One of the biggest beauty trends for the past few years has been lip fillers, and it’s easy to see why. Plumping up the volume of your lips makes them seem more luscious, sexy, and you can show off lipstick better. On top of that, since it’s only a few hundred dollars per vial, these cosmetic alterations are much more accessible than surgeries like rhinoplasty or brow lifts.
A lip augmentation is done by injecting the lips with bio-safe fillers, the most common being Juvéderm and Restylane. These fillers will plump up and enhance the shape of your lips.
While your mind may go to the classic “Instagram” lips that are extremely full, our cosmetic doctors will make sure your lips look natural, with the top lip behind about one-third smaller than the bottom one. Because of their customizable nature, your lips can be as big and luscious or as lowkey and natural as you want. For natural-looking volume, plumper fullness, and a refined lip shape, contact our Los Angeles facial cosmetic surgery.
What Are Fillers?
Fillers are a liquid that can be injected into the skin to fill out areas that lack volume or have developed wrinkles. They are usually made from hyaluronic acid despite being made from collagen when they first gained popularity.
Hyaluronic acid is completely safe to use, and the most common brands of this kind of injectable are:
- Juvéderm Ultra
- Juvéderm Ultra Plus
- Juvéderm Volbella
- Restylane Silk
These fillers vary in thickness and heaviness, so you can pick the kind that will work best for you based on your surgeon’s recommendation.
Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
The hyaluronic acid in the filler will fill out and shape the tissues of your lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers have many benefits, including:
- Control over lip volume: The amount of the substance your aesthetic specialist injects can be easily controlled, so just the right amount will be inserted to fill out your lips appropriately.
- Bumps dissolve easily: Your lips move multiple times per minute, and hyaluronic acid fillers are smooth, so you don’t need to worry about them clumping. They will move with your lip tissue.
- Less bruising: There is minimal bruising with these dermal fillers.
- Allergic reactions unlikely: Hyaluronic acid fillers are made from substances similar to those naturally in the body, so they are unlikely to cause an allergic reaction.
How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?
Any kind of dermal injectable is going to be absorbed into the body over time, so no filler is forever. Hyaluronic acid fillers are a bit longer lasting than other kinds, and they last from six months up to two years.
While you may not like the idea of having to pay for lip fillers every year, this makes it so you can try out different brands and different injectable amounts. It also makes it so if you didn’t like your last injection, you can redo it.
Are Lip Fillers Expensive?
Lip injections range from $600 to $2,000 in cost, and this price varies on the amount you need. If you have very thin lips, you will likely have to pay more since you’ll need more volume. If you only want a small amount or if you’re just looking to replenish the dermal fillers that’s already there, you’ll only pay a few hundred.
Lip fillers are not something you want to find the cheapest place in the city for. The best lip injections in Los Angeles will be from a cosmetic surgeon’s office because they will have the steadiest hand and the cleanest equipment. Choosing a place for discount filler is going to lead to more bruising and possible infection.
