Lip augmentation has become extremely popular in the United States in recent years, and Boston is no exception. As one of the central focus points of the face, your lips can accentuate your facial features or detract from them. If you are thinking about getting lip injections to augment your lips, you need to educate yourself about the types that are available so that you can find the one that is right for you. There are several types of lip injections, each offering slightly different benefits.
Each lip filler is categorized by its strength in augmenting volume, changing shape, or adding lift to the lips. In addition, the feel of a lip is important. Thinner fillers conform more to neighboring skin tissue, while the more viscous fillers help maintain shape. With that being said, at Skin Deep Laser Services in Peabody, we are proud to use JUVEDERM® Ultra XC for our lip injections. After learning some more about the treatment and the filler, you’ll see why.
A Closer Look at JUVEDERM® Ultra XC for Lip Enhancement
If you are looking for a lip filler with a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance, JUVEDERM® Ultra XC is definitely a filler worth considering. This product lends a very soft feel to the lips and tends to spread out more in a horizontal direction than some other fillers. Its high percentage of cross-linking gives it a long-lasting result, lasting around nine months to a year before needing a follow-up treatment at our office.
Additional Lip Injections
While lip injections in Boston offer pleasing results, they are not a permanent solution. The materials that are injected will be gradually metabolized and require replacement injections in the future. The good news is that lip injections with JUVEDERM® Ultra XC offer results that are very long-lasting without the need for any surgery or downtime.
