The 411 on Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation
May 16, 2019
Believe it or not, you don’t have to undergo a surgical procedure to plump and augment your lips. Here at the Langdon Center, we offer non-surgical lip augmentation through two fillers: Juvederm and Restylane. These fillers are great alternatives to surgical lip augmentation and can help you achieve the full, beautiful lips you’ve always dreamed of.
Juvederm vs. Restylane
Juvederm and Restylane are both lip fillers that contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body. Although they are both used to plump up the lips and reduce the appearance of lip wrinkles, there is one minor difference between them.
While Juvederm is a smooth consistency gel, Restylane is a granular gel. There are pros and cons to both of these consistencies. For example, since Restylane is more cohesive, it can be used to build up volume in a way that Juvederm can’t. An expert provider at our office can further explain these two fillers and help you decide on the ideal one for you.
Benefits of Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation
The greatest benefit of non-surgical lip augmentation is that it requires virtually no downtime. You can receive the treatment during your lunch break and resume work and your other daily responsibilities right away. In addition, you don’t have to worry about any pain as the injection process is virtually painless and can be completed in less than a half hour.
With lip augmentation, you can enjoy fuller, more youthful looking lips without committing to permanent results. In the event you aren’t fond of your results after undergoing a Juvederm or Restylane treatment, your injections can be dissolved so your lips return to their normal state.
Good Candidates for Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation
If you are bothered by thin lips and lip wrinkles yet do not want to undergo a surgical procedure, you may be a good candidate for non-surgical lip augmentation. In addition, if you think you may want permanent lip augmentation but want to test the waters first, non-surgical lip augmentation is the way to go. A private consultation at our office can help you determine whether you’re a good candidate for this procedure.
