Nature does not bless all of us with full, plump lips. Aging can cause once-full lips to lose volume and look thinner. Fortunately, you can correct both of these concerns with Juvederm® dermal fillers. This popular family of fillers includes some of the longest-lasting, most natural-looking lip augmentation formulas available. 

What is Juvederm® Dermal Filler? 

The Juvederm® family of dermal fillers includes formulas to smooth lines and wrinkles, restore volume to the cheeks, enhance the jawline, and plump the lips. Juvederm® fillers use formulas made of hyaluronic acid, a molecule found naturally in your skin. This complex sugar molecule attracts and holds moisture in the skin, making it a popular component of many skincare products. 

How Does Juvederm® Work for Lip Augmentation?

Juvederm® fillers designed for use in the lips have a smooth, flexible formula that will not inhibit the natural motion of your lips. At Krauss Dermatology, dermal filler injections are performed by a dermatologist. You will receive several injections in your lips after the numbing medication is applied. Most Juvederm® formulas contain lidocaine, an injectable numbing medication that also helps improve the comfort of the procedure. 

Which Juvederm® Fillers Work for Lip Augmentation?

At Krauss Dermatology, we often use Juvederm® Ultra XC for use in and around the lips. Other brands of filler such as Revance RHA 2 and Restylane Kysse may also be suggested by your dermatologist. Your dermatologist can help you determine which filler is best for achieving your desired results.  

Is There Any Downtime With Juvederm® Lip Augmentation?

People love dermal fillers for many reasons, including the lack of downtime. You can return to your normal activities immediately after the injection though avoiding vigorous exercise until the following day helps minimize swelling and bruising. You may experience minor swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site, but these side effects usually resolve within a few days. While you will see some immediate results, your final results can take 7-10 days to develop as swelling fades and the filler settles.

How Long Does Juvederm® Lip Augmentation Last?

Lip augmentation results provide the satisfaction of almost immediate results. Dermal fillers used in the lips must have a specific set of characteristics. Juvederm® Ultra XC has an ultra-flexible formula that lets your lips move naturally and can last up to a year before requiring maintenance. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Juvederm® Lip Augmentation?

Juvederm® uses hyaluronic acid, the most widely used dermal filler material. Since your skin already contains hyaluronic acid, the slow breakdown of Juvederm over time releases this safe, natural molecule into the skin. Almost anyone wanting to enhance their lips is a good candidate for lip fillers. Those concerned about an artificial appearance can rest assured that lip filler injected by a dermatologist at Krauss Dermatology will look smooth and natural.
