Achieving full and plump lips with the help of lip filler injections has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Charlotte over the last couple of years. Its popularity is largely driven by celebrity lips that have become a beauty standard (most women admit to admiring Angelina Jolie’s naturally full pout).
In addition to Kylie Jenner admitting to getting lip injections, beauty influencers have been very outspoken about the procedures they have undergone to enhance their appearance, including lip augmentation. The high level of influence celebrities and bloggers have on the young female demographic is what’s helping fuel this beauty trend, making lip injections the “tweakment” of choice that enables women to step up their selfie game and feel more confident about themselves.
I also believe that modern techniques, as well as the non-invasive nature of lip filler injections, have made the procedure a more appealing choice for those who want to rejuvenate their appearance. These top reasons explain why many women are including lip filler injections in their beauty regimen.
Lip Injections Are Cost Effective
Lip filler injections are an affordable alternative to surgery. They’re done in-office, so no hospital stay is required. The lip region also does not require a lot of filler to enhance it (unlike the cheeks which need a considerable amount of filler). Schedule a consultation to best determine the exact cost of lip fillers.
The Simplicity & Quickness of a Lip Filler Treatment
There are surgical, one-and-done procedures for lip augmentation. A lip lift, for example, is a surgical treatment that reveals more of your upper lip and a lovely vermilion border, making your lip look fuller. The procedure also shortens the area between your nose and lip to take years off your face. A lip lift requires downtime and recovery, like any surgical procedure.
Lip filler injections are a straightforward procedure that can be performed in 15 minutes or less, and most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment. Most of our dermal fillers include lidocaine in the formulation, making treatments not only quick and easy but more comfortable as well.
At Carolina Facial Plastics in Charlotte, NC, my team uses a needleless injection technique for lip augmentation that is more comfortable for patients and minimizes trauma and side effects after the procedure. When a needle is used for this treatment, the treatment area is poked multiple times, increasing the risk for bruising and swelling.
The blunt-tipped cannula used for the needleless technique is similar to a needle except that it is rounded on the end. The blunt tip pushes the tissue to the sides, resulting in less trauma to surrounding skin and tissue. We also offer topical numbing cream for patients who would like additional assurance during the procedure.
Another non-surgical option for lip augmentation would be a lip flip. This treatment involves the precise placement of Botox® Cosmetic along the upper lip muscle to relax the muscle and “flip” or curl the lip upward, creating a fuller, plumper upper lip. It adds fullness and definition to the upper lip without adding any volume to it. A lip flip also improves the appearance of a gummy smile. As an injectable treatment, it can even enhance the results of your lip filler injections.
An Increase in Available Lip Fillers
There is a wide variety of fillers that can be used for plumping the lips. The most popular lip fillers in Charlotte are made of hyaluronic acid (HA). My team uses a variety of HA lip fillers from both the Juvederm® and Restylane® lines. Each filler brand has different formulas specifically designed for the lips that are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
With so many fillers available, we can provide a wide range of filler results, from light and subtle to full and pouty. It’s a highly customizable treatment, and the right filler will be selected based on how much volume is needed and the goals of each patient. We will choose your filler carefully to ensure you achieve the most natural, beautiful results from your treatment.
It is crucial to go to a qualified provider who has the training and experience to safely achieve the most natural-looking results.
