Juvederm Lip Fillers: Pucker Up

At Nu Image Regina, our expert injectors can help you create plump, lovely, lush lips with Juvederm.

Juvederm wrinkle treatments aren’t only for wrinkles. At Nu Image in Regina, Juvederm lip fillers create lush, lovely, plump, lips that make a statement about who you are.

Let’s get serious about Juvederm lip fillers

Everyone wants fuller lips, but they also want a natural result. However, one size doesn’t fit all, and bigger isn’t always better. Like good Botox and facial fillers, lip fillers should work to balance the entire face because the science of symmetry makes everything proportional.

Here’s some advice from our experienced team of Nu Image injectors:

1. Slow and steady wins the race
Luscious lips are like anything else. They take time. The key to making lips more tempting is to do it gradually. Depending on what you want, doing everything in one session might not be possible or practical. So, once a week or once a month gradually gets you to your goal without risking duck lips.

2. Au naturale
Different people have different lip structures, and it isn’t possible to make someone’s lips look completely different. To make lips look natural you may have to use more product, plumping not just the mouth, but the surrounding skin.

3. Short term or longer term
Some fillers should never be injected into lips. Some are better than others. If you want to have something that lasts a bit longer, choose Voluma or Volift.

4. It’s all about the expertise
The outcome of Juvederm lip fillers depends on how the product is administered. It’s all about technique which is to prevent lumps, and bumps, and create a smooth, uniform finish. If you don’t like the results, you can adjust it or completely erase it with hyaluronidase.

5. You only need one syringe of Juvederm lip filler
One syringe will do it. Any more than one and you risk looking overdone. Lip fillers typically last four to six months — not as long as fillers in other parts of your face because you use your lips constantly.

You will notice the results immediately. While your lips will be a little swollen, the difference will be apparent. Give your lips a couple of days to settle and see the final result.
What to expect with Juvederm lip filler treatments
Avoid pain killers, fish oil and Vitamin E for a week before your treatment. Thinner blood makes you more prone to bruising and bleeding.

Before you are injected, a numbing cream will be applied. Lips are one of the most sensitive parts of our body, and injectors need you to stay completely still. The Juvederm lip filler products also contain lidocaine, which helps to bypass any pain on injection.

When the filler is injected, you will feel a pinch and likely a small sting. Then, the injector will massage your lips to distribute the filler. The treatment is usually completed within 15 to 20 minutes. After that, you’re on your way to get about your day. But just in case there’s bruising, don’t plan on hosting a gala in front of cameras for about three days.

Juvederm lip fillers are for men, too!
Just like women, some men have thinner lip lines and want a fuller, more masculine look. And just like women, the lips tend to thin as men age. Cosmetic medicine is for everyone.

Since 2000, based on data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there has been a 50% jump in the amount of lip enhancements. CBS News reports “about 1,200 male lip procedures were performed in 2015.” This was a whopping 400% increase since 2000.
