The skinny on full lips

April 1, 2016

Having full, plump lips is often considered a sign of good health, beauty and youth. Big lips are in! It’s almost impossible not to see a magazine, social media post, or television show that isn’t highlighting the soft and supple lip of some of our favorite celebrities. Whether you were born with thin lips or your lips are thinning due to the natural aging process, there are a number of non-surgical ways to enhance them. Lip injections using natural or synthetic fillers are able to keep your lips plump for months at a time.

According to Cosmo, we can thank Kylie Jenner and other notable luscious-lipped celebrities for making lip injections as popular as Botox in recent years. So what are your options and how do you decide which is best for you? Let’s take a look at the safe and popular injectable solutions:

Juvéderm

Juvéderm is able to subtly reshape and redefine your lips. Juvéderm is a smooth gel that is injected by a doctor or nurse injector using an ultra-fine needle. It has been specifically developed as a smooth gel to give a soft, natural feel to the lips. The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid in the gel attracts and retains moisture naturally, so your resulting fulness can last up to a year.

Restylane Silk

Silk is designed to provide precise lip shaping and line control, resulting in silkier, smoother lips and natural-looking results. Restylane Silk was specifically formulated for lipsand patients agree that it yields some of the more natural looking, smoothest lip enhancing results around.

Voluma

Is formulated similarly to Juvéderm in that it is a hyaluronic acid filler that is found naturally within your body. Voluma, unlike Juvéderm, is formulated with bigger particle sizes so it creates a thicker, more dense gel that gives an added boost of Voluma to the injected area. Voluma is for those who are severely lacking lip volume or who are wanting to go all out and get the big pouty lips of their dreams.
