Soft and voluminous lips are the aesthetic ideal for many patients at Ciaravino Total Beauty, but you may not be so lucky to have beautiful lips naturally. Although your lips may already complement your face, cosmetic treatment can increase their volume and improve your appearance overall.
Through lip enhancement, you can achieve the desirable lips you have always wanted. Dr. Ciaravino creates the perfect pout using both injectable filler and, at times, fat grafting. Not only will you rejuvenate your face, but also you will appear younger as a result.
Lip enhancement is possible through dermal fillers, particularly those that are comprised of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the skin that binds to moisture and maintains firmness.
When injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid restores volume within the skin and adds fullness to the lips. Although the injections are temporary, the filler is capable of lasting for some months before requiring re-treatment.
At Ciaravino Total Beauty, Dr. Ciaravino uses Juvederm and Restylane to enhance the lips, which usually remains in the skin for up to a year. One benefit of requiring maintenance injections is that you can better control the rejuvenation you receive and even decide to end your treatment whenever you see fit.
Another technique Dr. Ciaravino may use to fill the lips is through fat grafting — a method which extracts fat from one region of the body (typically the abdomen) and injects it into the lips. Fat transfers are successful in several regions of the body, and in the lips, injections can create a natural improvement without any risk of rejection.
When you come in for a consultation with Dr. Ciaravino, he will help you decide which technique is right for you. Both methods are extremely safe and create beautiful results; the treatment you choose depends on the amount of enhancement you wish to receive as well as your budget.
Choosing to undergo lip enhancement is a personal decision, one that you should think carefully about and research before receiving treatment. If you have always felt self-conscious about the size and shape of your lips, then cosmetic treatment may be the ideal solution.
Lip enhancement can correct lips that are thin as a result of aging or genetics or provide symmetry when one lip appears larger than the other. The goal, no matter the reason you seek treatment, is to improve your confidence in your appearance. When you choose to add volume to your lips, you’re making your self-image a priority and taking steps to feel comfortable in your own skin.
You can learn more about lip enhancement through a consultation with Dr. Ciaravino who will examine the current structure of your lips and determine the unit amount for the injectable treatment you receive. Together, you can discuss the ideal lip shape you are looking for and get started on your journey toward full and sensuous lips.
