Lip Injectables: What You Need to Know

Posted on: February 4, 2016  |   Category: ,,,

Juvederm Before and AfterGorgeous, full lips can add beauty and youth to your appearance. But when cosmetic treatment goes too far – it can be a nightmare. You want people to notice you for your glowing smile instead of “duck lips.”

If you weren’t born with naturally fuller lips, or they have lost volume over the years – that’s ok. Having the right provider for your lip augmentation procedure is essential, because the process is a work of art.

Not only does the specific procedure impact your results, but so does your natural facial contour. Trying to force something that isn’t right for your specific needs can give you the “duck lips” that you’ve been dreading. You also don’t want to go to the other extreme of filling the lips so much that you have what is often referred to as “trout mouth.”

Beautiful Lip Injections Do Exist

Although the media is great at publicizing women with horrible lip augmentation or filler treatments, you seldom see them talking about the ones that look great. Why? Because their treatment was done correctly! It’s important to not just treat one area of your face. The various zones around your smile and throughout different parts of your lips impact which steps are most appropriate to take – giving you the natural looking results that you desire.

Women often lose volume throughout their lips as they age, making them appear very thin. It’s no wonder why so many women are now having lip injectable procedures and augmentation performed. Just remember: one size does not fit all.

You need a trusted provider who can show you how various types of injectables or similar procedures can help you attain the overall results that you really want. Performing the wrong type of procedure or injection on the wrong part of the mouth can cause embarrassment rather than boost your self-confidence.

Choosing the wrong treatment or the wrong cosmetic center can be the deciding factor in what the future of your lips look like. It’s best to do your research!
