bigger lips

The best thing about the beauty world is that it is constantly changing and evolving. There is always going to be something that you can change about your appearance if you are unhappy with it — from treating excessive sweating, to investing in acne medical treatment or getting permanent hair removal.

Globally, the beauty and personal care industry is worth $400 billion. With this in mind, no matter your end goal, there will always be a beauty treatment to give you exactly what you’d like! This is true with enhancing your face with dermal fillers to add more volume to your lips or cheeks.

The most popular form of dermal filler is Juvederm. Here’s everything to know about this treatment before you make your appointment.

What exactly are Juvederm fillers?
Juvederm is a type of hyaluronic acid that is injected into specific areas of the skin. One of the best attributes of Juvederm is that hyaluronic acid is already produced in the body, so the body is more likely to accept it.

What are the fillers used for?
There are a couple different uses for fillers. Generally, they are used to smooth the lines from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth or they are injected into the mouth to achieve a look of bigger lips. Depending on the sagginess or depth of wrinkles in the skin, there are different strengths of the filler that can be administered for the best look possible.

What can I expect during treatment?
The injection is simple. The doctor will prescribe a topical anesthetic, and then they will simply inject the fillers into the face. Make sure to ask that they inject small amounts of filler into more areas of the face as it will look more natural this way. Besides some swelling and tenderness at the injection site, you’ll be able to go about your day as normal.

How long will the fillers last?
It largely depends on the injection site, but you’ll experience bigger lips for an average of four to six months.
