Are You a Good Candidate For Lip Fillers?

Kylie Jenner, Jessica Simpson, and Anna Faris are just a few of our favorite celebrities who use lip fillers for enviable, plump lips. Lip augmentation is one of the fastest growing cosmetic treatments, and it’s easier than ever before thanks to a range of FDA-approved lip fillers like Juvederm Volbella and Restylane Silk.

Do you want to have gorgeous pillowy lips like the celebrities?  Have no fear.  Here is what you need to know…

Do You Want Fuller Lips?

As a lip filler candidate, you should want fuller, more shapely lips. Some patients only want a subtle enhancement. Others want to transform thin lips into a much fuller pout. Wherever you fall on the spectrum, it’s important you are fully committed to adding volume to your lips.

You can work with your injection expert to determine the best product for your lips. Juvederm Volbella and Restylane Silk are both hyaluronic acid fillers that create soft and subtle volume where you need it most, but one might work best based on your specific needs and features.

Do You Know Your Filler Options?

When it comes to finding a lip filler to match your needs, you have plenty of options. Do some homework to decide which filler matches your cosmetic goals.

  1. Restylane: Increases the overall volume of your lips
  2. Restylane Silk: A light filler that is best for subtle enhancements
  3. Juvederm Volbella XC: A super-filler that can define your lip line and treat wrinkles around your mouth
  4. Juvederm Ultra XC: Best for plush, plump lips you want to flaunt

It is also possible to mix and layer different fillers to customize your results. Ask your injector to work their magic! You can also ease into your perfect lips in stages.  If you feel your look is not natural, it is possible to reverse the effects by dissolving the filler with hyaluronidase, an enzyme used to speed up the degradation of hyaluronic acid, quickly and safely.

Do You Have Realistic Expectations?

A lip filler treatment will definitely enhance your appearance, but it’s important that you have reasonable expectations of the overall outcome. Your lips may look a bit swollen following your filler treatment, but the swelling will disappear quickly and reveal your full, plump, youthful lips. Some patients find they like the fuller look right after treatment and come back for additional filler.  Remember that lip fillers are temporary. Depending on the filler you choose, your results will typically last around 6 months.
