What to consider if your planning on Cosmetic Injectable Lip Fillers
Lip fillers such as Juvéderm, Vollure XC, and Restylane are a type of soft tissue filler approved by the FDA that are used for lip enhancement.
Juvéderm Vollure XC and Restylane add several aesthetic qualities to the face and provides solutions to a patient’s cosmetic concerns. While these minimally invasive cosmetic injections are mostly safe, patients should consult a reputable plastic surgeon to determine if lip injections are right for them.
In this article, Dr. Paul E. Chasan, a board certified plastic surgeon in San Diego, discusses the lip fillers Juvéderm Vollure XC and Restylane including what you should consider before getting lip injections, the cost, and before and after results of lip fillers.
What are Lip Fillers?
Juvéderm Vollure XC and Restylane are Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal fillers that increase volume in the lips resulting in a plumper, smoother mouth. According to a 2018 guide from The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, “Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is already found in the skin.” Lip fillers are a minimally invasive procedure that posses few risks to the patient.
Juvéderm Vollure XC and Restylane are FDA-approved for lip injections which smooth moderate to several lines in the lips as well as replenish volume to the lips. Lip fillers can “last between 4 to 6 months but injections in the lips usually wear out faster than those in the face,” states a 2018 guide from The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.
