Lip Enhancement & Augmentation

Beautiful lips begin in our Long Island, NY spa!

When we assess the facial appearance of the people around us, the shape of their lips plays a very important role. Thin, tight lips appear unfriendly, intense, or even angry. A more full rounded lip is softer and makes a person look happier, younger and more approachable. There is a more sensual look to a fuller lip, but lips don’t have to be extra large to look nice. The goal is to create a lip shape that is natural and fits the profile and contour of the patient’s face, and to not be an obvious example of cosmetic enhancement. Virtual Skin Spa offers patients on Long Island, NY with non-surgical lip enhancement and augmentation services with cosmetic dermal fillers.

There is a variety of methods available to enhance and reshape the lips. While a fuller pout has long been considered an aesthetic ideal- especially since the Jenner craze, many women are still apprehensive to insert an actual implant or commit to a long term outcome. However, thin-lipped ladies are still on a question for a solution, while learning about other benefits.

Injectables offer you an easy quick fix, temporary, yet effective results. There is an art to lip enhancement, which makes the selection of an injector critical. Theresa not only understands the complexity, and sometimes unforgiving, anatomy of the lips, she is a leading professional in the proper injectables to meet your expectations and needs.

WHAT IS LIP ENHANCEMENT?

Lip enhancement (augmentation) is a cosmetic treatment for patients seeking fuller lips. Your face will automatically gain more symmetry while becoming more visually appealing. The treatment is a safe, proven option that can be performed in under 15 minutes once the right filler has been selected.

HOW IT WORKS

An injectable dermal filler is chosen and administered into your lips and around your mouth. When using fillers such as Restylane or Belotero Balance for lip augmentation, a topical cream is applied to numb the area being treated and the gel is injected into the inside of the upper or lower lip. It is also injected along the lip line or the Vermillion line.

BENEFITS

Dermal fillers allow you to have control over lip volume and can be done at a gradual pace during different appointments until the desired results are achieved. Any lumps and bumps created by the movement of the lips can be dissolved easily. This treatment provides fuller lips with less inflammation and bruising compared to other dermal fillers.

RESULTS

The results are reasonably long-lasting, but not permanent. Hyaluronic acid fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding shape, structure, and volume. Recovery requires no downtime and you may resume normal activities and go back to your daily routine instantly.

Is This You?

  • Your lips have always been thin and disappear when you smile
  • As you age, your lips have become thinner and less full
  • You feel self-conscious about how your lips look
  • Having fuller lips will help balance out your face

The Lip Fillers

Injectable fillers offer a fast and easy way to achieve a natural-looking lip, that is balanced and well-proportioned. The most common fillers today are products that contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It helps increase volume, ultimately resulting in beautiful lip enchantment right at our Long Island spa.

  • Fillers can be used to enhance the vermilion border (the outline of the lip), provide fullness where needed in both the upper and lower lip.
  • Not only does this produce a fuller, more youthful look, it can also help prevent lipstick from bleeding into the small lines around the lips.

Best Fillers for Lip Enhancement

Among the most frequent Hyaluronic acid lip fillers used by Virtual Skin Spa are:

  • Juvederm– Probably the most common hyaluronic acid filler, Juvederm can make your lips look more pronounced, hydrated, and voluminous for an entire year. Typical initial injection durations can be 6-9 months, with longevity increasing with future treatments.
  • Belotero– Belotero, which is also used to treat fine lines surrounding the mouth, can be used to augment the dimension of the lips as well as to diminish the appearance of lines and folds on the lips. Results typically last 6 months, as the body absorbs collagen and hyaluronic acid from the product.
  • Restylane– This injection rejuvenates the lips as well as the entire face, and is most highly recommended for patients with pronounced lip wrinkling. Restylane is recommended for patients wanting more substantial definition to the lips. Due to its unique molding property, when compared to Juvederm, Restylane can better provide definition in the lips whereas Juvederm produces fullness. Both products typically last 6-9 months in the lip region.


What to Expect Post-Treatment

When using temporary fillers to enhance thin lips, the amount of time the volume will last depends on how quickly your body breaks down the filler components. The effects typically last around six months. After that more injections are needed to keep the volume of your lips.
