A revolutionary new approach to natural-looking and fuller lips, Juvéderm fillers allow our clients to enhance volume in their lips and smooth out lip lines. At H-MD Medical Spa, we know how thin lips and the lines around them can make you feel. Sharing your happiness is essential, so at our Oklahoma City, OK, medical spa, we proudly provide the latest FDA-approved injectables for lip augmentation.
New Technology for Lip Augmentation
Juvéderm lip filler injections include a material called hyaluronic acid. Your body already produces this substance, which cushions and lubricates your joints and maintains hydration and elasticity within connective tissue.
Some of the most popular fillers use hyaluronic acid to add volume and hydrate the skin. Many of our clients feel more comfortable with this natural material.
What a Typical Juvéderm Procedure Looks Like
When you choose Juvéderm fillers, we will perform a series of gel injections in and around the lips. Factors like your treatment goals and the target areas you choose will affect the consistency and volume of gel we decide to inject, as well as the number and duration of treatment sessions. One of our highly qualified professionals will carry out the treatment according to the plan we help you formulate during your initial consultation.
What Is Juvéderm Made Of?
Juvéderm fillers are all composed of a hyaluronic acid gel with a smooth consistency that enhances the skin and the area just beneath it. Some of these treatments can enhance subdermal skin volume, increase skin elasticity, and fill out wrinkles.
All these factors provide a way to restore your mouth and lips to a more youthful appearance without surgery. We often recommend Juvéderm Volbella, a filler that smooths the wrinkles around your mouth and nose.
Juvéderm Volbella — for Treatment of Lip Lines
Juvéderm Volbella is one option in the Juvéderm range of products that address vertical lip lines and offer subtle aesthetic lip enhancements. Vertical lip lines have many names:
- Lipstick lines
- Smile lines
- Perioral lines
Lines around the lips and mouth develop over time due to aging, repeated movements, and sun exposure. What is Juvéderm Volbella, and what makes it unique? It uses a lower hyaluronic acid concentration than other Juvéderm lip fillers, which creates a smoother consistency and subtler final result.
How Juvéderm Lip Fillers Work
Adding naturally occurring hyaluronic acid to select areas allows it to act as a humectant — a chemical that helps those areas maintain moisture. The gel is combined with lidocaine, a topical anesthetic that ensures your comfort throughout the process.
When we inject the gel, it gets to work right away. It physically fills the gaps in the skin created by wrinkles as it integrates with existing tissue. This dual function allows it to add volume and provide natural structural support simultaneously.
The gel’s chemical properties also attract and bind water molecules, enhancing skin hydration. The additional hydration acts as a natural moisturizer to revitalize the skin and promote a healthy appearance.
Unique Characteristics of Juvéderm Volbella
Juvéderm Vobella’s smoother consistency and reduced viscosity allow our providers to place it very, very precisely in targeted lip areas. Its unique formulation uses Vycross technology to help remedy your concerns and create natural-looking, smooth, and voluminous results.
How Long Does Juvéderm Last?
Juvéderm treatments give more than a short-term boost to your appearance. How long does Juvéderm last? You can expect your results to last between six and 12 months. Vycross technology extends that interval; many of our patients see softened lip lines for up to a year.
Because hyaluronic acid is a natural material, the body metabolizes it and reabsorbs it over time. Your metabolism, lifestyle, and treatment area will all affect the duration of your results. During follow-up appointments, we can touch up and maintain your new look for as long as you would like.
Who Can Have a Juvéderm Treatment?
Juvéderm Volbella, along with other Juvéderm fillers, is approved for patients 21 years or older. In addition to smile lines, Juvéderm can help patients who want to address the following:
- Signs of aging in the face
- Lip lines
- Lip volume loss
Because Juvéderm is so versatile, we recommend it to a wide variety of patients. It’s an attractive solution for many aesthetic concerns — and we’re all too happy to provide the benefits.
Benefits of Juvéderm Lips Treatment
Invasive surgeries are effective, but they may also require significant recovery time before you see the final results. As a minimally invasive alternative, Juvéderm gives our clients faster outcomes.
Most patients see results as soon as the gel settles mere moments after treatment. The moment you see yourself in the mirror for the first time, you should be able to see your new look!
The minimal recovery period also allows busy patients to walk out of our office and return to their everyday routines. Surgical cosmetic procedures may need days or weeks of downtime compared to Juvéderm treatment recovery, so we often recommend Juvéderm fillers for patients who can’t afford to wait. While your body will reabsorb the gel over time, we can easily help you schedule follow-up appointments to maintain long-lasting results.
