There are several options when it comes to enhancing the appearance of your lips. Fillers remain popular for subtle volume and results that don’t require a big commitment. Not all filler formulas are meant to enhance the lips, so here are the ones you should be looking into if getting fuller lips is your priority!
Juvederm Volbella and Ultra XC
Juvederm offers a few formulas that can be added to the lips to make them appear fuller. Juvederm formulas use hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that adds hydration to the skin. Volbella is one that adds subtle volume to the lips and can also be added around the mouth to smooth out lines and wrinkles. If you have very thin lips due to genetics or aging, you might choose Juvederm Ultra for even more volume. Both fillers are FDA approved for those 21 and older. Over time, the formula will begin to break down, but you can expect to have fuller lips for up to a year before a touchup session is needed.
Restylane Silk is specifically designed to add natural-looking volume to the lips. It uses smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles for more even distribution. Not only does it plump the lips, it also improves shape and symmetry and smooths the appearance of lip lines. The formula is approved for those 21 and older and can give you results that last for six months before a maintenance session is needed.
Do you love the look of your lips with fillers but are getting tired of needing a touch up? Fillers are a great way to try out a more permanent lip enhancement solution like PermaLip implants. Permalip implants are made of soft silicone, giving your lips a natural look and feel, and can significantly plump your lips.
