Angelina Jolie. Megan Fox. What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear those names? For most people it’s those beautiful and full lips. And for good reason too. I mean who wouldn’t want a pair of plump, sexy, beautiful lips. But not all women are lucky enough to be born with Angelina Jolie or Megan Fox’s lips. That’s why millions of dollars are spent each year on lipstick, lip balms, and other cosmetics as women try to perfect the appearance of their lips.
But, natural makeup products can only do so much to temporarily enhance the appearance of your lips. As we age our bodies lose fluid and our skin loses its elasticity, which is why we get wrinkles. The same thing happens to our lips—as they lose their volume they may also lose their shape and color. Others may be born with naturally thin lips, and have always wanted fuller lips without having surgery.
Non-surgical lip enhancement is one of my favorite treatments because it truly is an art form to be able to give you the lips you want in a natural and subtle way, without making you look overdone or fake. Out of all the injectable fillers used for lip augmentation, Juvederm®, works the best in giving women the bigger, sexy, pouty lips they want. Juvederm is made of Hyaluronic Acid, which is a substance that is naturally found in our bodies. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. By replacing the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid which is lost during the aging process, the smooth Juvederm Gel will give your lips the volume and fullness you’ve been wanting. Juvederm Ultra XC is my personal filler of choice for lip enhancement because of its exceptionally smooth texture. Each syringe also contains Lidocaine, which is a numbing medication which will help give you a more comfortable treatment experience. Juvederm Ultra XC lifts and adds volume to the areas being treated, creating a plump and pouty look which is immediately noticeable. Your lips remain soft and natural to the touch. The results of Juvederm Ultra XC may last up to 12 months with only one treatment.
The important thing when considering fillers for lip augmentation or enhancement is that you keep the natural shape and contour of your lips. During your lip enhancement consultation Dr. Zadeh will discuss the look you want to achieve and will help you get the best results and avoid the fake “sausage lips” look. Dr. Zadeh always lets his clients look along with a mirror during their treatments, so they can be sure they are getting the effect they want.
Remember, less is more. You can always get additional injections during your follow-up appointments. It’s alot harder to get rid of too much filler put in during one treatment.
Dr. Zadeh is an experienced and skilled provider of Botox and Juvederm treatments. His intimate knowledge and understanding of facial anatomy enables him to provide precise injections that produce the exact effects you desire, and avoids treatment complications.
