Have your lips become so thin over time that you’re wondering – How can I make my lips look bigger? Fuller lips are considered youthful and more attractive, and while some people are born with thin lips, others experience a decline in lip volume due to aging.
Why lips become thinner with age
Youthful lips are plump and moist because there is plenty of collagen and hyaluronic acid present. However, the production of these naturally occurring substances slows over time, causing the lips to lose volume, and appear thin and wrinkled.
How can I make my lips look bigger?
Dermal fillers can restore volume in the lips and make them fuller, making it possible to have beautiful lips at any age. The process of injecting fillers into the lips is known as lip augmentation, and is typically done using a hyaluronic acid based filler like Juvederm Volbella.
Juvederm Volbella is FDA approved for augmenting the lips, and reducing the appearance of perioral lines (vertical lines above the lip).
How Juvederm Volbella plumps the lips
Juvederm Volbella is injected into strategic areas of the lips using a tiny needle. The HA molecules in the filler attract and hold in water, and this instantly adds volume to the lips.
Lip augmentation with Juvederm Volbella is virtually painless, as the filler contains lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic. There is typically some post-procedural swelling, but this is usually short lived.
How long do the results of Juvederm Volbella last?
The results of Juvederm Volbella typically last 12 months.
