Juvederm Lip Augmentation

Beauty and confidence can manifest in various details, and one of them is the lips. Enhancing their shape and volume through Juvederm lip augmentation is becoming increasingly popular in Chicago. This procedure allows you to achieve the desired results by giving your lips the desired volume and contour.

What are lip fillers

Lip fillers are innovative cosmetic products used to correct lip shape and increase volume. They are based on hyaluronic acid, a natural component present in our skin. Hyaluronic acid possesses unique moisturizing and water-retention properties, making it an ideal choice for creating natural and attractive looks.

Lip augmentation with fillers allows you to:

  • Enhance their shape and contour: you can achieve the desired shape, emphasize the contour, and give your lips a more defined appearance.
  • Increase volume: fillers can help you achieve the desired volume, making your lips fuller and more enticing.
  • Correct imperfections: in cases of visible defects or asymmetry, fillers can be used to provide balance and harmony.
  • Achieve a natural result: lip filler injections enable you to create a natural and effortless look while preserving your facial individuality.

What types of fillers are used for lip augmentation?

Initially, implants made of synthetic polymers were used to correct lip volume and shape, which had no biodegradation properties and remained in the tissue indefinitely. This led to serious complications over time, such as material migration and inflammation, which required immediate surgical intervention to remove the implants.

As a result, cosmetologists refused to use such materials and gave preference to biodegradable means that gradually disintegrate in the tissues and are absolutely safe. Currently, the most popular are fillers based on hyaluronic acid of various densities, synthesized artificially. They are in great demand for the following reasons:

  • Minimal risk of complications: hyaluronic acid rarely triggers allergic reactions or complications.
  • Effectiveness: It can address various cosmetic defects effectively.
  • Tissue compatibility: it interacts well with tissues, resulting in natural-looking outcomes.
  • Long-lasting effect: the effects of the procedure last for 6–12 months, after which the product is naturally metabolized by the body.

In addition, hyaluronic acid triggers tissue regeneration processes and stimulates the formation of necessary structural proteins for the creation of new cells.

In aesthetic cosmetology, lip fillers from the Juvederm series, produced by the American company Allergen, are very popular. The two most popular products are:

  1. Juvederm Ultra XC: this medium-density filler is recommended for adding volume and achieving the desired lip shape. It is suitable for patients who have lost lip volume due to aging, as well as those who want a more pronounced volume. The product provides natural fullness and is ideal for delicate lip skin.
  2. Juvederm Volbella: this low-density filler has a softer volume and texture for the most natural-looking results. It not only adds volume but also smooths contours to create defined lines. It can be used to fill vertical lines and wrinkles around the mouth, providing a natural and attractive appearance.

The correction procedure is carried out in stages. It begins with a consultation, where an examination and an assessment of the problem's nature are conducted, patient history is collected, and contraindications are ruled out.

The correction process involves:

  • Cleansing the lip skin with an antiseptic.
  • Application of an anesthetic to minimize discomfort.
  • The cosmetic specialist injects the filler into the target areas, gently and evenly dispersing it in the tissues.
  • After the procedure, the lip skin is re-treated with an antiseptic.
