What Is the Best Injectable for Thinning Lips?
Posted in Injectable Fillers
Lip fillers are an excellent way to enhance the volume and shape of your thinning lips. Depending on your personal preferences, lip fillers offer results that range from soft and natural to dramatic. Because they are temporary, fillers give you a lot of wiggle room to try different brands and injection amounts to see what works best and gives you the results you desire.
There are many different lip fillers available. At The Spa at Spring Ridge, we offer JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, and Restylane® Silk. All of these are hyaluronic acid fillers. Traditionally, hyaluronic acid fillers are recommended when plumping and adding volume to the lips. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is found in the connective tissues, cartilage, and skin and is responsible for keeping your skin refreshed and hydrated. When hyaluronic acid fillers are added to thin lips, they act in much of the same way. Hyaluronic acid fillers attract and bind moisture to the lips, allowing them to appear plump, smooth, and hydrated. And since hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, it is improbable that the fillers would be rejected or that there would be an allergic reaction.
What Are Your Options?
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® is specifically designed to add volume to naturally thin or thinning lips and smooth out the lines and wrinkles around the lips. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC has a very thin consistency, which allows it to spread and fill in the lips evenly and smoothly to provide a natural-looking pout for up to one year. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is one of the most popular fillers for adding volume to the lips.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC has a thicker consistency than JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC and is often used to create plumper and fuller lips instantaneously. This lip filler also provides lasting results that can be seen for up to one year.
Restylane® Silk is another hyaluronic acid filler that adds volume to the lips and reduces wrinkles around the lips. This filler is approved for patients over the age of 21 and can provide results for six months to one year. Restylane® Silk typically causes more swelling than the JUVÉDERM® product line.
