As the name implies, a lip plumper is a cosmetic product designed to make the lips look fuller. The ingredients in over-the-counter lip plumpers can irritate the skin and cause awkward swelling, and the results do not last very long; however, physician-delivered lip plumpers last for weeks and look much more natural.
If you would like to have fuller, plumper lips, the best solution is to have injectable fillers performed by a plastic surgeon who has experience and knowledge of what works best and for whom. Everyone’s body is different, and everyone’s lips are different – and a cosmetic surgeon will know how to make your lips look naturally full and beautiful.
Lip Plumper and Facial Injectables that Work
Let’s talk about two of the best options in having fuller, more youthful-looking lips and smoother skin – Juvéderm and Voluma:
Simply stated, Juvéderm is a facial filler and a wrinkle corrector. This family of injectable fillers corrects severe to mild wrinkles that appear on the face as well as treating fine lines around the lips, thereby giving the lips a fuller, more structured appearance.
Plus, it’s made of a natural ingredient: hyaluronic acid. Juvéderm is formulated with a modified version of hyaluronic acid that is designed to last up to 12 months. Juvéderm is a natural-feeling gel that is scientifically crafted to make the skin and lips look younger, smoother, and fuller.
The gel in this product is similar to the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in the body, so most people react well to it. The active ingredient in Juvéderm is not an animal extract as in other filler products.
The long-lasting benefits and positive results from Juvéderm include fuller, plumper lips without the costs, downtime, and recovery associated with invasive surgery. Juvéderm is a simple cosmetic treatment that does not require general anesthesia.
Like Juvéderm, Voluma is also a dermal filler whose active ingredient is hyaluronic acid. It isn’t as soft or as light as Juvéderm, but it is effective in adding volume to the cheeks and lips – it is specially formulated to restore lost volume in the face due to the natural aging process.
Voluma injections have longer-lasting results than most dermal fillers, including other hyaluronic acid fillers, as it can last up to two years. Voluma corrects fine lines and wrinkles as well.
