Cosmetic lip filler injections have recently gained popularity because of their prominent role on social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. Recent campaigns by celebrities, including the Kylie Jenner “Lip Challenge,” have brought significant attention to this widely available aesthetic procedure that can be done in the office. Because there are several products available that can be used to plump the lips, it is important to schedule a private consultation to determine which is best for a particular patient.
Juvederm is a filler product composed of hyaluronic acid. When injected in the lips, the results usually last for about six months before the product is broken down by the body. After this period, the lips will return to their appearance before the injections. In some patients, the results last for a little more or a little less than six months. Every patient metabolizes the product differently, so results will vary from person to person.
A private one on one consultation is necessary to discuss the cosmetic goals a particular patient is hoping to achieve. During the consultation, we will review your medical history and if you have any allergies. We will also discuss previous injections that you may have had and how much you have had injected. This information will help us to begin to form a plan to identify your problem areas and begin the process of cosmetic rejuvenation.
