Are your lips naturally thin or losing some of their shape due to the normal aging process? Plump them up! Thanks to today’s non-invasive cosmetic techniques, the quest for the perfect lips has become easier. At Adonia Medical Clinic, Dr. Ifeoma Ejikeme is pleased to offer lip enhancement injections for patients who want fuller and more defined lips.
Subtle Lip Enhancement with Juvéderm Volbella
The Juvéderm family of hyaluronic acid fillers is a popular line of injectables. With formulas specially designed to be used in and around the lips, Juvéderm is a top choice for augmenting the lips and smoothing fine lines. How does the filler work? Hyaluronic acid is a hydrating sugar that the body naturally produces. As the body ages, it slows its production of this essential substance, contributing to volume loss and wrinkle formation. When hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin, it helps the skin retain moisture. Best of all, its plumping properties take effect immediately.
Adding Volume at Adonia
Before your injection, Dr. Ejikeme will evaluate your lips and discuss your aesthetic goals to determine the injection technique. During your appointment, the dermal filler will be gently injected into the lips using a fine needle. In order to achieve the right proportions, Dr. Ejikeme will carefully monitor the amount of filler as it is introduced. The filler contains a small amount of local anesthesia, which helps prevent discomfort. A lip enhancement procedure can be completed in under an hour.
After your treatment, your lips will be noticeably, but naturally fuller. A lip enhancement treatment can yield long-lasting results. With Juvéderm Volbella, patients report continued benefits for up to one year. Individual outcomes may vary, depending on the patient.
Is Juvéderm Volbella safe for all skin types and ages?
Yes. Hyaluronic acid is a biocompatible substance that is well tolerated by all skin types. Juvéderm products, including Volbella, are considered safe for most patients and no allergy test is needed.
Will I have to take time off from work?
There is no downtime associated with a lip enhancement procedure and you can return to your normal activities after your appointment. However, immediately after your injection, your lips will be slightly swollen. This is perfectly normal and you can expect the swelling to subside within a day or so. Some patients experience some mild bruising at the injection site. Again, this side effect typically fades quickly.
Will my lips look unnatural?
Although lip augmentation is a straightforward procedure, it requires expertise and an eye for detail. At Adonia Medical Clinic, we strive to achieve naturally-looking results that complement your unique beauty. Our lip enhancement treatments are carefully performed. We inject just the right amount of filler to give the lips a boost–without overdoing it.
