Your Guide to Lip Enhancement

People today take good care of themselves, keeping their bodies young and healthy and maintaining a youthful appearance much longer than people of previous generations. But as we age, lip tissue shrinks, making us look older. Done properly, lip enhancement can be the solution.

Lip enhancement has come a long way since it first became popular in the nineties. Today’s procedures take very little time and are very effective. As a result, Preventous performs hundreds of cosmetic procedures each year, including lip augmentations.

At Preventous, we use hyaluronic acid (Restylane® or Juvederm) to add volume to lips. After applying a topical anesthetic, your physician injects the hyaluronic acid using tiny needles. The procedure is relatively painless and the results are immediate.

The most important question to ask when considering lip enhancement is whether the doctor performing the procedure is experienced. If someone has not done many enhancements, they may overfill the area, resulting in lips that are too big or have a stiff, unnatural appearance.

Lip enhancements are performed in Preventous’ comfortable medical clinic, making them safe as well as effective. The length of time they last varies; some people see results for as long as six to eight months.

The way you look affects how you feel and is part of living your healthiest life. As you work to take care of yourself inside and out, cutting-edge cosmetic medicine techniques and procedures are tools like lip enhancement can help.
