Lip Augmentation

Fillers Are Something to Smile About in New Jersey

The lips are some of the hardest-working parts of the body. They are a part of every word spoken, every smile and frown, and even every kiss. Because of their spotlight role, they can get a lot of attention—which can be welcome if someone is confident in how their lips look, but uncomfortable if they are not. Thin lips can be a problem, but there is a simple solution for lip augmentation at New Jersey’s South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center.

Volbella® is a member of the Juvederm® fillers family, made by Allergan specifically for lip augmentation and use around the mouth. This brand has a reputation for safety, efficacy, and beautiful results. Dr. Robin Levin has particular experience with members of the Juvederm® line, choosing them for their reliability and natural-looking volume.

What Causes Thin Lips?

Lips that are thin enough to prompt someone to consider lip augmentation have a variety of potential causes. In some cases, a person's lips are simply naturally thin due to genetics. A lifetime of seeing them in the mirror may be motivation enough to seek out lip augmentation options.

In other cases, the aging process causes full lips to gradually lose volume, making them appear thinner over time. Anyone experiencing this may want lip augmentation to regain their more youthful contours.

Both scenarios involve a lack of sufficient collagen, which is a protein that provides an abundance of benefits in the skin, including healthy volume, structure, flexibility, and a home for moisture-loving hyaluronic acid.

How Does Lip Augmentation Work?

An injectable filler is meant to play the role of collagen, even if—as in the case of Volbella®— the filler's base is hyaluronic acid. Injected with precision into the lips, the filler adds volume to make the lips appear rounder, shapelier, and more hydrated.

Though temporary, the results are long lasting. Lip augmentation patients can expect to enjoy their fuller lips for up to a year, after which they can get a new set of injections to keep their lips looking healthy and young.

Does the Injector Matter?

Absolutely! Remember: Lips are very visible, so it is important to choose an experienced injector who will make the results of a lip augmentation session appear natural, not puffy or overdone. The goal is to maintain ideal proportions between the lips—upper and lower—so that the rejuvenation harmonizes with the rest of the face.

The filler can also be used to smooth out lip lines around the mouth, further emphasizing the area's youthful look.
