Dr. Parsons has been perfecting her lip injection techniques since 2006 and patients should seek lip restoration or lip enhancement from only the very best injectors. "Injecting lips may seem like a simple procedure, but it is probably the most difficult cosmetic injection I perform, as it is very tricky to get just the right appearance that is natural and addresses the concerns of each individual patient. Though injecting lips takes great skill, it is one of my favorite procedures." Whether you would like minimal enhancement of your lips or fuller lips, trust your lips to only the best medical providers of this treatment.
Lip fillers are composed of Hyaluronic acid. The most common ones used are Restylane and Juvederm. They are injected into the soft tissue of the lip to increase lip volume and size. The fillers tend to be “hydrophilic” as well, which means they attract water and can add to the plumping effect of the filler.
Who's Most Likely to Request This Procedure?
Although some men ask for lip fillers, it is mainly a procedure that women request. Women’s’ ages tend to range from the early 20s to 50s, 60s, and 70s. It may seem odd that women in the latter three decades request lip fillers, but they do. The reason is that the lips tend to thin with age. They can also have more of a wrinkled appearance. Replenishing volume in the lips can restore a youthful appearance. Younger women who seek fillers typically just want plumper, fuller lips. There are also a lot of women in their 30s and 40s who were just born with thinner lips and want to see more of the pink part. If you have a concern about your lips or the skin around your lips, Dr. Parsons can help.
How Long Do Fillers Last?
"Fillers for the lips tend to last a pretty long time. Usually, the minimum is around six months but can last nine to twelve months and longer in a lot of patients. The nice thing about it is fillers tend to have a somewhat cumulative effect, where women who come back to have their lips refilled, even if it’s a good year later, haven’t really lost all the volume from the time before." Dr. Parsons.
Is There Anyone Who Shouldn’t Get Fillers?
"The people that shouldn’t get fillers are women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. While they would likely have no problem, we have not studied the effects and can’t say for sure if there could be harmful to these women or their offspring. Also, anyone who has an allergy or hypersensitivity to fillers or any of their components."
We offer several solutions for lip restoration and/or enhancement.
Refined Lip Enhancement
Many first-time patients, who have never had a lip filler treatment previously, often wish to begin with something mild. The number one request we hear is that they wish to avoid "duck lips." This is a genuine concern, and to be sure, Dr. Parsons does not perform excessive or overly corrected lip enhancement treatments. For those who wish to try lip filler for the first time, Dr. Parsons usually recommends a specific product that allows for mild lip definition that adds softness and moisture with minimal volume. We call that "refined lip enhancement." Book Refined Lip Enhancement Here.
Soft Volume Enhancement
We also have patients, who still have very good lip definition, but would like to add some soft volume. Dr. Parsons will choose a product to achieve this, to enhance volume, with a soft and natural look. We call this "soft volume enhancement". Book Soft Volume Lip Enhancement here.
Defined and Voluminous
The majority of the patients we see have both loss of lip definition and loss of volume. When there is a loss of lip definition, that is when the vertical lip wrinkles can cross into the pink portion of the lip, and this is also an area where lipstick can "bleed" into the lips. To add both lip definition, and to restore loss of lip volume, Dr. Parsons will choose a product that can accomplish both to address both of these concerns with one treatment. We call this treatment "Defined and voluminous." Book Defined and Voluminous Lips here.
Big and Juicy
We also receive requests for more dramatic lip enhancement, with good lip definition and a more dramatic volume increase. Dr. Parsons often accomplishes this with a combination of products, to achieve what we call "Big and Juicy." Book Big and Juicy Lips here.
