Your lips are one of the first things people notice about you. Whether you're speaking or smiling, each of your facial features is an important aspect of how you look and how others perceive you. Lip fillers are a way of adding fullness and depth to your lips or even changing the shape of your lips. At TLC of Coral Gables in Miami, we offer a variety of aesthetic procedures including lip fillers.
What Are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are dermal fillers used to make thin lips appear fuller. There are a few different types of lip fillers to choose from. The most well-known fillers include Restylane and Juvéderm. Both of these brands work in slightly different ways. Our doctor will help you decide which type of filler is the best choice to give you the look you are hoping for.
Why Would Someone Want Lip Fillers?
There are several reasons why an individual would choose to have lip fillers. Larger, fuller lips are often seen as a desirable trait. This is just one reason a person may want to have lip fillers. Sometimes an individual may want to add lift to one or both lips. As a person ages, the appearance of wrinkles or small lines sometimes appears on the lips. There are many reasons a person might want to use lip fillers to increase the size, look, and feel of their lips.
What Type of Procedure is Involved?
There are generally two different types of procedures that can be used to increase the size and volume of the lips. There are different types of fillers and there are laser procedures that can also increase the volume and shape of the lips. Both types of procedures can be performed quickly. External numbing cream is often used before the fillers are injected into the lips and surrounding areas. While you may experience mild pain following the procedure, it should subside quickly.
