Lip augmentation for plump and youthful looking lips
Plump, soft, and luscious! Lip augmentation is our favorite enhancement and one of our client’s most rewarding treatment. Generally, the ideal ratio of the vertical height of the upper lip to the lower lip is 1:1.6. Either due to genetics or due to age, this ratio may be slightly off, leading to thin or uneven lips. Some people may also have asymmetry of their Cupid’s bow or body. We choose from a variety of dermal fillers to correct ratio, symmetry, add volume, and enhance your features.
The Yofi Kiss
The doctors at Yofi Medical Spa will perform a complete initial evaluation of your facial anatomy, review your desired look, and recommend the best filler and technique to give you the desired results. Just like every lip is different, so is every dermal filler. We have experience with a wide range of dermal fillers that can be utilized to give you the specific look you’re interested in. Whether its subtle, heart shaped, or plump – we will have you looking your best.
How is lip augmentation performed?
Initially, you will meet with the doctor who will evaluate your facial anatomy, review your aesthetic goals, and then recommend the best filler to give you the desired results. Injections are usually done on the same day as the evaluation. After applying a powerful numbing cream, the injection area is cleaned and injections are performed. After the procedure, we will apply an ice pack and Arnica cream to decrease the chance of bruising and lessen swelling. You will follow-up with the doctor within 2 weeks for an touch ups as necessary.
We carry the full product lines of Juvederm and Restylane and select the one that fits the look you’re going for. For most of our younger clients who already have structural support in the lips and are looking to supplement with volume, we usually use Restylane Kysse, Defyne, Refyne or Juvederm Ultra XC or Volbella. For our clients who have experienced some loss of structural support in addition to volume loss, we typically use Restylane-L, Defyne, or Juvederm Ultra Plus. The choice of dermal filler is typically made based on your anatomy, age, and desired outcome.
Prior to your treatment, we numb our lips with our proprietary numbing cream for about 20-30 minutes to create the most comfortable treatment. Most clients are very comfortable during injections. To decrease bruising we apply ice packs after the injections and arnica cream which minimizes bruising. While bruising can happen, it is usually minimal, self-limiting, and will resolve within 3-4 days.
Your luscious lips will retain their beauty around 9-12 months, depending on the dermal filler used. Keep in mind that this time frame varies from person to person depending on your body’s metabolism.
