Get the Lips that are Oh-So-Kissable!
The world is going crazy for full, shapely lips! Social media certainly can’t get enough of it, and images of celebrities, models and internet sensations are hard to avoid. Besides being the latest trend, lip fillers also work to reduce the appearance of aging, thinning lips. You can receive fillers if you are looking to reduce fine lines in the lip area that cause the appearance of aging. If you are interested in Lip Fillers, you should schedule a consultation to discuss a treatment plan with Re:nu 180 in Southington!
What are they and how do they work?
Juvederm XC Ultra is a type of dermal filler that is popularly used for lips. It is an HA (hyaluronic acid) filler, which is a component naturally found in our bodies already. Juvederm and other HA fillers, such as Restylane, are a gel-like consistency that bonds with the water beneath your skin to add volume to the injected area. This provides results that are instantaneous. However, what really makes HA fillers last, is that they promotes collagen production in the dermis. Collagen keeps wrinkles away and makes the surface of our skin smooth and plump; all great traits for lip fillers!
What Happens During a Consultation?
During a consultation, you can ask any questions that you may have about the treatment before actually scheduling it. The medical practitioner will also have some questions for you to get to know your beauty goals, as well as your health history and current condition. It’s important to note any allergies or things of the sort at this time.
What’s Treatment like?
Lip Filler treatments are typically quick with little to no downtime. It’s a non-invasive (or non-surgical) treatment, meaning no incisions will be made. If you feel that you are sensitive to needle injections, but still want a lip filler, the medical practitioner can provide a topical anesthetic (numbing agent) to your lips before starting. The injections are relatively quick, and patients usually report feeling little to no discomfort and pain during the treatment.
What are Results like?
Results are usually evident immediately. There may be moderate swelling for the first day, but you can expect to wake up to the lips you’ve always wanted*. Your results should last about 6 months to a year! View our before and after gallery here!
It’s normal for patients to feel a little soreness or tenderness after receiving injections. It may take a day or so for swelling to completely subside. Redness and itchiness are other possible side effects. These effects are usually minor and short-term.
