If you want to have fuller lips, then a lip augmentation is a great option for you. Many benefits come with lip augmentations, including increased self-confidence and more harmonious facial features.

1. You’ll Have Fuller Lips

This is the main benefit of a lip augmentation, and it’s an obvious one. If you want your lips to look fuller or more symmetrical, then getting a lip augmentation will provide that for you. With the right filler in your lips, they become more full and plump over time as the hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin and fills out the tender skin of the lips. This is not a permanent fix, though, as hyaluronic acid does break down over time. Eventually, you’ll need to return for another lip injection if you want to maintain your fuller lips.

2. You’ll Have More Self-Confidence

When you look good, you feel good. When you love the way your features look in the mirror, you’re not worried about what others think about your appearance. This will make for a better quality of life, as you’ll be happier in all kinds of situations.

3. You’ll Have More Options

Lip augmentations or lip injections aren’t just about getting perfectly pouty lips. It can be used to fine-tune their appearance in many ways, including correcting symmetry or just removing fine lines from them for a smoother appearance. No matter what technique is used, a lip augmentation can give you more options when it comes to makeup, clothes, hairstyles, and more.

4. It’s A Quick Procedure

It’s worth mentioning that although the procedure itself is extremely quick and the recovery time limited, the results don’t happen right away. You’ll only need about thirty minutes or so to treat both lips, with full results appearing after about a week. Plus, the downtime afterward isn’t very extensive either; you’ll probably be able to go back to your regular activities immediately with a little extra caution for your lips.

5. Nearly Anyone Can Get Lip Filler

There are many procedures out there that aren’t available for everyone. For instance, not every person is a candidate for eyelid surgery or facelifts because of their overall health or wellness. However, with lip augmentations, it doesn’t matter what type of body you have – pretty much anyone can get this procedure done.

6. You Can Fill In Your Natural Lip Line

Many people are unsatisfied with their natural lip line, whether it’s not as full as they’d like it to be or it’s not as defined as ideal. If you’re one of these people, getting a lip augmentation will allow you to fill in your naturally thin lips and create a fuller, custom look for yourself.

7. Dermal Fillers Can Be Used Throughout The Face

Some dermal fillers are specially formulated for lip injections, but others are multi-faceted, meaning you can use it on other areas of the face, like around your mouth or chin. With many different formulas available, our Nurse Injector Jamie Thalmann can treat many areas of the face to help create your ideal contours and appearance.
