Soft, plump, kissable lips. There's nothing more alluring than a set of luscious lips. Whether it's age or genetics - having thin or small lips can make you self-conscious and feel older than you are.
Our lips begin to thin out and lose their rosy red hue in our early 30s and 40s. Why? UV damage from the sun starts the process, but it's mostly a result of collagen depletion - the protein responsible for creating full, plump lips.
Lip filler or lip augmentation is a great option to add real volume and definition to your lips. This can be done while maintaining a natural, soft look that doesn't look overfilled or fake.
Our team of aesthetic nurses offers several options when it comes to lip injections and can find the perfect match for you.
Our team at New Life Aesthetics offers several lip augmentation treatment options so you can achieve your dream lips.
Lip fillers like Juvederm, Volbella and Juvederm Ultra add volume and hydration to plump lips and smooth fine lines. PDO threads lift and add structure to lips without the use of fillers.
Botox is also used to showcase your lips by correcting gummy smiles or creating a subtle lip flip.
Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) Gel uses your body's own growth factors to add fullness to lips while stimulating collagen production for an all-natural lip augmentation.
Lip augmentation is a fairly simple in-office procedure that can be completed in less than an hour.
After your consultation, our aesthetics team will recommend the type of lip filler or procedure they feel will help you achieve the lips you've always hoped for.
After numbing cream has been applied, we will make small injections to add volume and hydrate your lips with lip filler. Since our lips have a lot of blood vessels, you will probably notice some swelling right after your lip filler appointment.
This swelling can last 1-2 weeks, but using cool compresses, arnica tablets or ointment, and avoiding alcohol can all reduce how much swelling you see. It takes about 4 weeks to see your final results after the lip filler has settled and the swelling has gone away.
If your lip augmentation involves Botox - it takes two weeks to see the full results and there is no downtime or swelling. Botox slightly relaxes the muscle that allows you to pucker, so you may notice a smoother upper lip and a slightly fuller look.
PDO threads create instant results that continue to improve as the threads dissolve. Lidocaine injections are used to increase your comfort during your appointment. The downtime is similar to lip filler where you may have some swelling that takes a couple of weeks to resolve.
When using PRF Gel to enhance your natural beauty, a small blood draw is needed to collect growth factors. This is usually done from the arm and then the blood is spun at a specific rate to separate the various types of blood cells.
Once this is complete, the PRF Gel is injected into the lips adding an instant plump and hydrated look. As the PRF Gel starts to stimulate collagen and elastin in the lips - your blood protein gel dissolves and is replaced naturally.
Most people need 2-3 PRF Gel sessions to get their desired results which are done 8-12 weeks apart. You may have some swelling or slight bruising after PRF Gel but the downtime is minimal for this lip augmentation procedure.
New Life Aesthetics offers a variety of pain management options to minimize your discomfort during the procedure. These include: a topical numbing cream, cool compresses, lidocaine injections, and nitrous oxide analgesic gas.
Lip filler may last 6-12 months depending on your metabolism and the type of filler used. Botox lasts approximately 2 months around the mouth. PRF Gel and PDO threads can last up to 12 months after a series of treatments.
Our team of aesthetic nurses is highly trained in the art and safety of lip augmentation and is ready to help you find your dream set of lips.
