February is the Month of Love and there’s a lot to love about yourself and those around you. One of the things I love most in my practice is to see my patients satisfied with their results. One of the most simple procedures my patients love the most is getting their lips filled. This is an instantly rejuvenating, sexy enhancement that can make a women go from feeling “meh” to a maven.
Lip injections are truly one of the most gratifying procedures. The results are instant, relatively painless, take very little time, and don’t hinder your schedule or lifestyle one bit. They have benefits that can surpass the physical enhancement with emotional confidence, sensuality and youthfulness.
Something seemingly so simple, however, can harm your appearance rather than help it if certain precautions aren’t taken. Protect yourself by only choosing expert injectors, which is the only option in my office. You never want to trust your face or body to someone without the best credentials, experience and track record.
An expert injector will know exactly where and how much filler to inject to achieve the correct lip proportion, shape and texture. This is crucial to avoid:
- looking like obviously over filled, stiff “sausage lips”
- losing the “cupids bow” by over filling the philtrum resulting in “duck lips”
- lumpy bumpy lips
- puffy, awkward area around the lips because of losing the lip line differentiation where the filler bleeds into the area outside the lip line
Help your results look their best by taking care of your lips. Smoking has one of the worst effects on lips because of dehydration and cellular damage induced volume loss, as well as creases, cracks and wrinkles due to constant pursing and puckering. Drinking lots of water will help every organ and tissue in the body, including the youthfulness of your skin and lips.
Hyaluronic acid injectables, such as Juvederm are ideal for plumping lips. Juvederm is a smooth gel that feels soft and natural, lasting approximately 6 months. This FDA approved treatment also stimulates your body to make its own collagen again, for long term benefits.
Love your results. Love your lips. Let our expert injectors help you achieve the luscious lips you’ll feel great about. Schedule your consultation at www.davinciplastic.com.
