Plump Your Lips This Valentine’s Day With Lip Fillers

Full, sexy, and enticing pouts have become all the rage these days, from celebrities to the girl next door. Over the last decade, lip augmentation has become increasing popular with patients of all ages.

With his years of extensive training and carefully crafted expertise, Dr. Zochowski can provide you with a full, beautiful, and natural pout that will be a gift for you and your significant other this coming holiday.

What Are Lip Fillers?

With the increase in lip fillers’ popularity, there are many different kinds to choose from. Dr. Zochowski prefers the Juvéderm® and Restylane® product lines to create outstanding results.

The most notable difference between the two products is that Juvéderm® produces a greater increase in total lip volume, where Restylane® is for patients who want slightly firmer, more sculpted lips with a subtle increase in volume. Juvéderm® Volbella creates subtle, natural results that moderately increase the volume of the lips into the existing lip shape.

These fillers, on average, last nine to 12 months.

What Is in Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers vary in consistency, but they all share one thing in common: Their primary ingredient is a naturally derived compound called hyaluronic acid. HA exists throughout the human body as a natural strengthening mechanism. It strengthens cartilage and connective tissues, ensuring your skin remains taut, smooth, and hydrated. Injecting HA into the lips provides an immediate increase in volume and an improvement in skin condition.

What to Expect During Your Treatment

Before administering lip injections, Dr. Zochowski will discuss your expectations and evaluate a treatment plan that will work best for you. Then, the doctor will use a thin, fine needle to add the filler of your choice to your lips. A topical anesthetic will keep the procedure comfortable and painless.

Most patients don’t experience any significant discomfort after their procedure. Some mild redness may occur, and swelling is common. The best part about lip fillers is that a session can be as quick as 15 minutes, and you’re free to go about your regular schedule right away.
