“Welcome to February (the month of love). May you experience and show true love (affection, care and lots of happiness) to someone else or others throughout this February and beyond. Happy new month ahead anyway.” Emeasoba George
February is only half over. Are you wanting to show love and affection with fuller plump lips? JUVÉDERM™ is semi-permanent injectable filler for treating facial wrinkles and plumping up lips. JuvedermTM Injectable Gel is made of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. The gel is injected under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel with long lasting results. Other lip filler augmentation options are Radiesse and Sculptra. Dr. Magassy will go through your options and recommend the product that will work best to achieve your desired results.
On average, how long do lip injections last?
Lip filler augmentation is a semi-permanent solution as most fillers, such as Juvederm, last between six to eight months. Lip fillers are completed as an outpatient procedure, and can even be done while on your lunch break.
The main purpose for most cosmetic procedures is for the patient to address and improve an area to gain more self-confidence. Fuller lips are seen to be youthful and sexy. And who doesn’t want to look and feel sexy during the month of love? For patients with thinner lips, if having fuller lips will improve your confidence, then proceed with lip fillers.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported a 50% increase in lip enhancement between 2000 and 2017. And in 2015, when Kylie Jenner admitted to having a lip augmentation, cosmetic surgery clinics reported a 70% increase in consultation requests over the course of 24-hours. Well before the Jenners, Marilyn Monroe became iconic because she represented how society thought about women and sex. "Because there were fewer men due to the war, there wasn't just a lot more competition for a man, there was also this idea that you had to please him to keep him. You couldn't just look like you were capable of having sex. You had to be excited about it, and full lips can help express that."
Everyone seems to have an opinion about lip injections. If fuller lips appeal to you – go for it! Lip fillers are semi-permanent. During your consultation, Dr. Magassy will discuss your desired size and shape results and will provide you his recommendations.
