Fuller lips can most definitely make you look younger!
Some say that fuller lips from lip injections can make you look “fake” or too “pouty”, but it’s key to remember one thing; Studies have shown that women who have fuller and firmer lips are seen as younger than they really are.
As we age we start to notice loss of volume, skin laxity, and bone loss. This can affect many areas such as your forehead, temples, cheeks, nasal folds, under eyes and even your lips.
Lips get their beautiful shape partly from collagen production. As we age, the amount of collagen produced slows down, resulting in loss of shape and fullness. Lips can also lose their volume and shape due to genetics, sun damage, and smoking.
Lip fillers can give you back youthful full lips. Juvederm and Teosyal are lip fillers containing Hylauronic Acid that can re-shape, add volume, address fine lines, and enhance the cupid’s bow.
Juvederm and Teosyal lip fillers are temporary and can last anywhere between 6 months to 2 years.

Lip augmentation is a growing trend among young women and men who wish to achieve a fuller pout. Teenagers, even as young as 16 years of age are obsessed with trying to attain lips like Kylie Jenner.
Age is an important factor to consider before having a lip augmentation.
Some medical clinics have different rules and regulations when it comes to deciding on what is the appropriate age for having a Lip Augmentation.
Some clinics will gladly inject a patient as young as 16-18 years of age with parental consent, while some clinics will simply turn away patients younger than age 21.
Safety guidelines for Juvederm stipulate that a patient under the age of 18 is not at an established age for use of their products.
Be sure to discuss with your parents and professional injector your wishes and desires to find the best suitable solution for Lip Augmentation.
Anyone who would like fuller lips can be a good candidate for lip injections.
Some people are born with naturally thin lips, while others may have uneven, asymmetrical lips which may make other features seems out of proportion with the rest of their facial features. Lip augmentation can also be helpful at turning back the clock and restoring lips to their more youthful appearance.
Lip Fillers are commonly made up of synthesized Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is naturally produced in your body. Because hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, no prior allergy test is needed. Dermal fillers like these,can add volume, smooth out fine lines, reshape, and correct asymmetry without surgery.
With all the benefits there are of getting lip augmentation, there are certain contraindications as well.
If you are hypersensitive to hyaluronic acid, which is the main ingredient of the dermal filler, then you are more prone to side effects. If you are prone to hypertrophic scarring, then there is a chance that you may develop hypertrophic scars from this treatment.
If you have cold sores or prone to them, your specialist should be notified, as cold sores are caused by a virus that can become activated by the disruption of the skin using dermal filler.
Lip augmentation results last between 6 months to 1-year dependent on the dermal filler that is chosen.

Everybody loves beautifully shaped lips, but lip injections can have both their positives and negatives.
Lumpy lips can be a side effect of lip augmentation caused by improper placement, too much filler, and improper choice of product or even poor aftercare by the patient.
Lips are highly vascular and are prone to bruising and swelling, however massaging by the injection specialist is mandatory immediately post lip injections as well as choosing lip filler that is appropriate and indicated for the lips.
The first few days after injection the lips can be swollen or bruised, and temporary lumps could develop but should resolve quickly. Most bumps after filler injections can usually be rubbed out during the initial treatment stage by the injector. Massaging lips after Juvederm is mostly optimal within the first 48 hours while the product is more malleable. It is not recommended that the patient massage the filler themselves, as it is possible to press too hard and/or move the filler into the wrong place
Most temporary lip fillers available to patients are Juvederm, Restylane and Teosyal. These lip fillers are made of up Hyaluronic Acid, which is a substance that has the advantage of being soft, effective at contouring, and reversible. If a patient has any lumps that do not resolve, then Hyaluronidase can be injected into the lips to correct any unevenness or lumpiness. Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that breaks down Hyaluronic Acid found in lip fillers. This can take one or several treatments.
It is not uncommon after repeated lip filler treatments, that some bumps are related to the scar tissue that forms around the implanted gel.
Since fillers are introduced with needles, it can create small amounts of bleeding. This is irritating to tissue, and cause scar formation.
It is best to book a follow up appointment with your injector to evaluate the procedure, as they can adjust any residual lumps or bumps at that time.
In most cases, lumpy lips caused by temporary lip fillers are reversible and non-permanent.
How does one know whether they require a lip lift or lip filler?
If the distance from your nose to the red part of your upper lip is NOT long or elongated, and if your upper lip is not facing downwards, then all you need is a filler to augment the lip.
Although lip augmentation with dermal fillers is the most commonly used method of lip augmentation, there are some patients who are not candidates for this procedure. These are generally patients who have little or no lip to augment.
Some patients have lips that turn under and inwards towards their teeth. In these cases a lip lift procedure would be recommended.
Lip lifts can reduce the distance from the nose and the red portion of your lip. The lip lift technique that’s used will depend on a patient’s specifications for their lip augmentation results.
There are 2 types of Surgical Lip Lifts
Upper Lip Lift – shortens the skin distance that is between the upper lip and the base of the nose. This increases the amount of ‘pink lip’ that is seen and exposes the teeth as well. An incision is placed directly beneath the nose and a small strip of skin and tissue is removed to lift the lip to its new position
Corner Lip Lift – involves lifting only the edges of your mouth. It is mostly designed for patients who feel they have a permanent frown or marionette line.
The fact that is that both are surgical procedures recovery time can take up to 4 to 6 weeks.
Although lip augmentation with injectable filler has much less downtime, lip fillers can lift the lip through volume restoration but will not correct the problem if the lip is facing downwards and the distance between the upper lip and nostril is too long. Only a subnasal lip lift can, but has a limited effect increasing the size of the red of the lip. Injectable fillers or a lip implant may be required as well.
A number of treatments are available for patients who are undergoing lip augmentation, whether it’s non-surgical or surgical. In order to make the right decision and choose the right procedure for lip augmentation, it is important to first decide what effects he/she wants to achieve, and whether they want the effects to last. Guidance from a plastic surgeon should be taken when deciding which technique is suited for a lip augmentation procedure

TEOSYAL® Kiss New Formulation redefines the lips, and softens the lips with more hydration.
The new Teosyal Kiss Formulation is said to last longer than the original, up to one year.
The Vycross technology in Volbella as well as Voluma and Volift has more efficient cross-linking thus producing a greater lift capacity and longer lasting results. What gives it such a natural look in the lips is it’s lower HA concentration.
This also means that there is less chance of Volbella absorbing water like other hyaluronic fillers thus reducing the chances of swelling giving you a more natural result.
