What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? They might include buying chocolates, making a gourmet dinner, or splurging for a night on the town. Or, like many Americans, you might not be planning on celebrating Valentine’s Day at all. This year, instead of spending your money on someone else, Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique suggests that you do something just for yourself.
Lip fillers are an instant way to improve your appearance, plumping your lips while adding proportion and balance to your features. The gratitude you’ll have for this moment of self-care will surely warm your heart – and maybe even the heart of someone special.
The Art of Lip Fillers
Once upon a time, women had two choices: disguise their thin lips with lipstick or opt for surgical placement of silicone lip implants. Since that time, aesthetic medicine has changed dramatically. Innovative, nonsurgical techniques for facial rejuvenation are soaring in popularity. Injectable dermal fillers are a great choice for temporarily add volume and shape to the cheekbones, jawline, nose, and of course, the lips.
Fillers, such as Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Vollure, Juvederm Ultra, and Restylane, are made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance that plumps tissues. A sophisticated ingredient for facial rejuvenation, HA can hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water. The tiny injections will provide immediate results, plus the HA will continue to hold in moisture for long-lasting benefits. In six to twelve months, as the results fade, you can choose to maintain your look with another round of fillers, or go back to your natural appearance.
Lip Fillers Can:
- Plump lips
- Create a more dramatic Cupid’s Bow (‘M’ on top lip)
- Restore symmetry to the lips
- Add definition to lip borders
- Lift the corners of the mouth
- Smooth vertical lines (Smoker’s Lines) around the mouth
- Reduce a ‘gummy’ smile
Safely Plump Your Pucker
Are the immediate and custom-tailored results from lip fillers too good to be true? When applied by a licensed, experienced profession injector or cosmetic surgeon, the results are just as wonderful as they sound. However, don’t be tempted to get bargain-priced lip fillers at a party, a shady-looking spa, or beauty salon. An inexperienced injector will not know the right placement or how much product to inject for your desired results. Even worse, they may place something other than a dermal filler into your lips.
Hyaluronic Acid fillers are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as safe and effective. Unlike a surgical procedure, there is little chance for serious complications. The most common risks of lip fillers includes redness, bruising, and tenderness. Although more serious complications are rare, there is a small chance for asymmetry, scarring, and infection. Luckily, if something should not look right, or you simply do not like your results, your provider will be able to dissolve the HA filler instantly with an injection of a hyaluronidase solution.
