While full, pouty lips have always been the epitome of a seductive look, there has been a recent resurgence in its popularity. Beauty and fashion icons, such as Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, are credited with taking the plump lip trend to a whole new level. With picture-perfect pouts, millions of trendy individuals around the globe are looking for a way to mimic the fullness of their lips.
You may have heard about glosses and serums that promise to give the illusion of fuller lips, and you may have even tried them. While some of these products can temporarily provide plumper lips, they often come along with a stinging sensation and wear off quickly. For longer lasting results, many opt for Juvederm lip injection treatments.*
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an FDA-approved treatment for lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is an injectable filler that includes hyaluronic acid and a natural sugar complex. These compounds help to restore the natural elasticity of the skin, aiding in a smoother, more supple appearance. The results are significant and, when used as a lip injection, you are able to maintain a celebrity level pout for substantially longer.*
How Does Juvederm work?
A Nurse, Nurse Practitioner, or doctor who is experienced with administering Juvederm will discuss the details of the procedure and your desired results prior to the appointment. To begin the process, numbing cream will first be applied to the lips. After the lips are numb, the injection process will begin. As the lips are numb at this point, you will not feel any discomfort as the injections are being administered. As the Juvederm begins to fill the lips, the administrator will mold the lips to ensure that the look is smooth and natural. At this point, the filler begins to make its way through the lips, instantly plumping them up.* There may be some mild discomfort and minor swelling for a day or two after the procedure as the filler settles in place.*
Risks and Side Effects
As far as plastic surgery treatments go, lip injections with Juvederm are one of the safest.* This is because the hyaluronic acid contained in the filler already exists naturally in the body. There is little chance of allergic reaction or serious side effects from the procedure, though it is important to note that no procedure is completely free of side effects.* Some of the most common side effects include minor swelling and discomfort at the injection sites, along with bruising. In the event that these side effects occur, they subside on their own within a few days following treatment.*
The End Results
After a day or two, the lips will be pouty without the need to continuously reapply serums or specialty glosses.* You can continue wearing your favorite lip products while enjoying a Kardashian style pout. The amount of time that your seductively bigger lips will last may vary from person to person, although the results may last up to a year.* This means you are free from posing for photos with duck lips for up to an entire year.* At this point, you may opt to undergo another lip injection Juvederm treatment to re-inflate the lips to your desired level of poutiness.
