Juvéderm Lip Filler

Juvéderm is a dermal filler, an injectable cosmetic that adds fullness and dimension to the lips. Full, curvaceous lips are associated with sensuality and youth. Unfortunately, the aging process causes a breakdown of the fat that once gave lips their shapely pout. For people with naturally thin lips, this can be especially troubling. Luckily, there’s Juvéderm!

Whether you’re looking to restore your pucker or just want to perfect your pout, this popular cosmetic is an excellent solution. This FDA-approved lip filler is a specially formulated gel that contains powerful, naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. This rejuvenator works behind the scenes to volumize, hydrate, and firm skin. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself getting a few extra kisses! Dr. Justin Hogan uses an exacting approach and aesthetic expertise to ensure that all of his patients love their lips.

How does Juvéderm Lip Filler work?

Juvéderm Lip Filler, like other dermal fillers, works beneath the surface of the skin to plump areas that would benefit from a boost. True to their name, these strategically placed injections replace the volume that diminishes with age. As the years pass, the fat that contributes to the soft curves of facial features becomes diminished. Similarly, our production of collagen, the building block of soft tissue contours, and our own production of hyaluronic acid ebbs. But besides turning up the volume on thin lips, gaunt features, or pesky wrinkles, it’s what’s happening behind the scenes after your Juvederm injections that make these fillers such an innovative cosmetic.

FAQs about Juvéderm Lip Filler

Am I a candidate?

Candidates for lip fillers are in good health and over 21 years of age. Lip fillers are not for those who are currently pregnant or breastfeeding. Those who have active outbreaks or infections should postpone their injections until their skin has healed.

How does the procedure go?

Dr. Hogan will use a delicate needle to inject Juvéderm in a series of strategic locations to carefully sculpt and accentuate your lips. His cautious and gradual approach ensures that your results are subtle and sexy, and without that “done” look. Within no time, you’ll be on your way and able to get back to your day, although it’s generally advised to avoid any strenuous activity or exercise for the next 24 hours.

How does the consultation work?

Dr. Hogan personally meets with each patient to learn more about their aesthetic and health goals, and determine a customized approach. During your consultation, Dr. Hogan will review your medical history, allergies, and prior procedures to determine if lip fillers are the perfect way to enhance your lips. Additionally, each consultation at LVWellness includes a complimentary and comprehensive skincare analysis. We offer a wide range of skin care and aesthetic services to make sure that our patients look and feel their very best!

When will I see results?

Although you’ll notice an immediate difference after your appointment, your final results will be visible in the next few days, as any swelling or bruising fades, and the gel settles into place. Depending on the type and amount of Juvéderm you’ve had injected, you’ll be able to enjoy your full, beautiful lips for up to a year.

Do I need to prepare?

Juvéderm lip filler is a series of quick injections, so there’s little preparation required. Avoiding blood-thinning medication and alcohol the day before and after your injections will eliminate the possibility of unnecessary bleeding or bruising. Be gentle to your skin before and after your appointment to minimize the risk of irritation. Discontinue retinols and strong acids about a week prior to your appointment.

What is the cost?

Every patient is different and has different needs and desires. The number of injections, amount, and type of Juvéderm will vary from patient to patient. As a result, the cost of each lip filler session will also vary. Dr. Hogan will be able to give you an accurate estimate for your Juvéderm session during your personal consultation.

Restylane Lip Filler

Restylane is a hyaluronic acid gel filler used to plump and volumize the lips in a cosmetic lip augmentation, giving a rejuvenated facial appearance. It is referred to in the field as a non-animal, stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASH) and is known to be one of the most versatile fillers available. Lip augmentation alters the appearance of the lips via the injection of fillers such as Restylane, resulting in a radiant, rejuvenated facial appearance.

Some of the advantages of using Restylane include:

  • Very low allergic potential (no need for skin tests)
  • Lasts longer than traditional collagen fillers
  • Natural look and feel
  • Moldable, easy to administer

Why should Lip Fillers be administered by Doctors?

Many patients are already aware of who can administer lip fillers, but the question is; who should? In the United States, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and dentists can all administer dermal fillers such as Restylane. Although highly qualified in their individual fields, they may not have the consistent, aesthetically focused experience one would desire when looking for the right medical professional to do the job. This is why receiving lip fillers from a doctor is far more preferable for experience, efficiency, and patient peace of mind. That’s why Dr. Hogan personally performs all injectable treatments at LVWellness. He invites you to book a skincare analysis, during which he will inform you of the individual differences a Restylane lip filler procedure would have for you.

FAQs about Restylane Lip Filler

Am I a candidate?

As we age, we may notice that our mouth does not have the same energized, youthful appearance it once did. Over time the starkest of changes can occur in the lips. Whether younger or older, patients seeking a Restylane lip filler treatment are adults over the age of 21 who wish to improve the aesthetic appearance of their lips. Common reasons for getting lip fillers are to increase lip plumping, smooth the signs of aging around the lips (wrinkles and lines), and rejuvenate the appearance of the face.

How does the procedure go?

With a meticulous approach to injectable treatments, Dr. Hogan keeps his patients’ long-term goals and safety in mind throughout the treatment process. His gradual introduction of filler via injection significantly reduces its migrating to the lips’ outer edge. By ensuring a slower, more measured technique, Dr. Hogan can produce satisfying, long-lasting results for his patients.

How does the consultation work?

At LVWellness & Aesthetics, your health and wellness are our priority. Dr. Hogan takes immense pride in providing care that is authentically personalized to you. At your consultation, he will listen to your concerns about your lips’ appearance and assess your lip volume and skin laxity in the area. The lip filler Dr. Hogan will use for your procedure will depend on your individual preferences in the level of plumpness you want to achieve. He will provide expert advice on the course of action that is right for you and ensure that you choose the lip filler that will benefit you the most.

When will I see results?

After your Restylane treatment, Dr. Hogan will advise you to do the following things:

  • Use antibiotic cream & ice packs to minimize bruising & swelling
  • Rest well on the day of your treatment
  • Avoid extreme temperatures (hot and cold) and UV exposure
  • Avoid vigorous activities
  • Keep your lips hydrated and clean

Do I need to prepare?

It is important for you to discuss the long-term goals of your lip augmentation treatment with Dr. Hogan. He will give you a clear picture of what the procedure will entail and provide further guidance on the longevity and outcomes of using Restylane for your lip filler treatment. To prepare for your Restylane lip filler procedure, you should note the following:

  • Stay hydrated
  • Don’t take blood thinners
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Be mindful of HSV (cold sores)

When will I see results?

Restylane is an excellent option for patients who are looking for fuller, more youthful-looking lips. Although the results of your Restylane treatment will vary depending on your age, and the type of skin you have, you may find your age-related wrinkles and thinning lips are now revitalized, plumper, and smoother. In addition, younger patients looking for an increase in the volume of their lips can experience enviable lip fullness after a Restylane lip procedure.
