Best and Safest Solutions for Lip Enhancement
There’s no denying that full lips are highly desirable. Why else would the world be thrown into a tizzy when Kylie Jenner recently unveiled her larger lips? Despite insisting for months that her new appearance was the result of over-lining her lips, Kylie recently confessed that she used fillers for lip enhancement.
Whether you’re always wanted full lips or you’ve been inspired by Kylie’s recent transformation, there are plenty of options available to help you enhance your lip size and shape. Lip enhancement is a great solution for people who may feel that their current lips are too small or thin.
Additionally, lip enhancement is the perfect option for people who may be self-conscious about the appearance of lip lines and wrinkles. Puppet lines, smile lines, and even smoker’s lines can be minimized with a few carefully placed lip injections. That means you can achieve younger-looking lips, all while plumping them up to Kylie-level heights.
Dr. Nhi Le uses several different injections for lip enhancement, depending on a client’s overall goals and desired outcome. Her go-to lip injections include the following:
- Belotero: This prescription lip injection is ideal for clients who want to minimize the appearance of vertical lip lines, all while enhancing the size of their lips. Belotero is made from a thinner gel, which means lips still look and feel natural.
- Restylane Silk: Perhaps the most popular option for lip enhancement, this hyaluronic acid gel filler maintains lip fullness, all while minimizing the appearance of smoker’s lines and lip wrinkles. Results last, too – Restylane Silk is designed to last between 12 to 18 months.
- Juvederm: This go-to hyaluronic acid filler has recently been approved by the FDA for lip enhancements. Like Restylane Silk, Juvederm is comprised of a hyaluronic acid gel, which provides subtle yet noticeable volume to the injection site. Hyaluronic acid also promotes collagen production, leading to long-lasting, youthful-looking results.
