Atlanta Lip Enhancement
Lip Enhancement Atlanta
Whether a result of genetics or the natural aging process, thin lips and lines around the mouth are a big concern for many women. But what if you could improve the shape, fullness, and definition of your lips while still looking natural? Well, now you can with a little help from the amazing Atlanta lip enhancement team at The Swan Center!
What is lip augmentation?
Lip enhancement, or lip augmentation, is a procedure designed to plump the lips and increase their shape, creating a sexy “pout.” Here at The Swan Center, we’ve found that the best lip enhancement results can be achieved through non-surgical lip injections with a dermal filler. Lip filler injections have grown in popularity over the last few years as a safe, reliable way to temporarily add volume and definition to your lips while retaining a natural look—all without surgery or significant downtime!
Why consider lip enhancement?
If you’re tired of your lips making you look older than your age, lip filler injections can help you look and feel more youthful and attractive. Here are some of the benefits of lip augmentation in Atlanta:
- Restore volume to thin or aging lips
- Smooth vertical lip lines
- Improve symmetry between the upper and lower lip
- Increase definition in thin or flat lips
What type of filler is used to enhance the lips?
We use the Restylane® family of hyaluronic acid-based fillers to treat a number of concerns—and Restylane Silk is our preferred option for subtle lip enhancement. This smooth, gel-like hyaluronic acid filler provides subtle lip enhancement by improving the fullness and shape of thinning lips and diminishing signs of aging around the mouth (they are great for correcting vertical lip lines). Hyaluronic acid-based fillers like Restylane Silk are ideal for lip enhancement because they not only volumize the lips but also increase your body’s natural collagen production, meaning you’ll see improvements in the quality of your lip skin during the months following your treatment. Hyaluronic acid fillers can also be undone using an enzyme called hyaluronidase if you are unsatisfied with your lip filler results.
Lip augmentation is quick and comfortable, and most patients enjoy results within just a few days.
Do lip injections hurt?
The lips are fairly sensitive, therefore you’ll likely feel a pinching sensation during your injection. Don’t worry though—most of our patients report that the discomfort is tolerable, short-lived, and well worth having full, shapely lips. Because everyone has a different threshold for pain, it’s important to be open with your provider about your comfort.
In some cases, we can ice the area or apply a topical numbing solution to help reduce any pain you’re experiencing.
What will my lips look like after injections?
Expect your lips to look a little swollen for a couple of days. While we use a very thin needle to inject the filler into the lips, your body will still react to the puncture as an injury and begin its natural healing process. Swelling should go away within a day or two, and the use of ice as directed by your provider can help lessen swelling in addition to providing relief for any sensitivity.
How long do Restylane lip injections last?
Restylane Silk can last six or more months, though this can vary based on your natural anatomy, the amount of filler injected, and your lifestyle. Over time, your body will slowly absorb the filler and your natural lip size will return.
We recommend coming in for maintenance treatments every few months to keep your results looking fresh and beautiful.
