Perfect and Plump Up Your Pout With Juvederm

Full lips can be considered a sign of youth, confidence and beauty. We tend to lose lip volume with age, but lip augmentation with Juvederm can give you a perfect, sexy pout often associated with youthful appearances.

According to the 2020 National Plastic Surgery Statistics, both surgical and nonsurgical lip augmentations remain one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available.

Fillers are increasingly becoming more popular due to their temporary nature and the surgeon’s control over the final results.

The popularity of lip augmentation may largely be due to popular celebrities who can be known for their signature fuller lips. They have massive followings, and some women want to achieve a similar look. Lip augmentations may also have risen in popularity as a result of the increased easy accessibility to fillers like Juvederm.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler that is one of the most popular options for lip augmentation. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the body, so it is extremely well-tolerated and FDA-approved.

Why Should I Choose Juvederm For Lip Augmentation?

Juvederm has a perfect gel consistency for achieving a lush, full look that is still natural. Because it’s hyaluronic acid, it will naturally metabolize over time, so there is no harsh “before and after.” Your lips will look naturally plumper post-treatment, and they will gradually return to a pre-treatment state over a long period of time.

How Does the Juvederm Process Work?

Your cosmetic surgeon or nurse may apply a local numbing agent to prevent discomfort. Once your lips are numbed, fine needles will be inserted into the injection sites, and the Juvederm will be injected. There is no downtime, but you may experience slight discomfort and swelling immediately following the injections.

Results should be immediately visible, and the filler will look more natural and “settled” once the swelling has gone down.

How Long Does Each Juvederm Treatment Take?

The lip filler process typically takes anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. There is no recovery time, but you may experience swelling or mild bruising until the injection sites have healed.

What is the Cost of a Juvederm Procedure?

The cost of Juvederm varies based on factors such as:

  • Geographic location
  • Amount of filler required
  • Surgeon’s office chosen

Juvederm procedures are generally priced per syringe, so your cosmetic surgeon’s office will be able to give you a more precise estimate based on your goals.

How Long Will My Juvederm Results Last?

For most people, Juvederm injections last up to a year. The body slowly and naturally metabolizes the hyaluronic acid over time, so you can typically tell when it’s time for a maintenance injection.

Every person’s body is different, so some people may notice that their results last for more or less time. Ask your surgeon during your consultation for a more specific timeline.

How to Choose the Right Cosmetic Surgeon’s Office

Although Juvederm is a quick and minimally invasive procedure, it’s important to choose a credentialed and experienced plastic surgeon’s office, preferably one with board certification.

When you opt for a professional who has specific training with aesthetic procedures, you can feel confident that your results will be beautiful, symmetrical and natural. Board-certified plastic surgeons are also able to give better, safer outcomes than non-certified estheticians or physicians.

You’ll also want to choose a surgeon who makes you feel comfortable and whose aesthetic style matches the final results you’re hoping for. This will ensure a better outcome for your lip augmentation.

You Can Feel as Sexy as a Celebrity

You can ditch the lip-plumping glosses, and forget about complicated lip exercises that promise celebrity-worthy lips. Lip augmentation is a safe and simple way to achieve naturally sexy and plump lips that can help you feel as confident as a celebrity on the red carpet.
