Late summer in California is a great time for trying out any kind of injectable, as fillers and BOTOX® aren’t impacted much by high temperatures or sun exposure, and you won’t need any downtime at home to recover—so you can go back to enjoying seasonal fun right away. If you’ve always had naturally smaller lips and want to add some more volume, if you’re generally happy with your lip shape and just want a few enhancements, or if you want to restore the appearance of lips that have been damaged by aging or environmental factors, Juvéderm® injections from our Thousand Oaks practice is a convenient way of getting the results you’re seeking.
The Juvéderm® collection consists of several options for rejuvenating different parts of the face, such as the lips, the area around the mouth, and the midface area. With that in mind, there are two types of Juvederm® fillers that are designed specifically for the lips: Juvéderm Volbella® and Juvéderm Ultra®.
The lips are especially susceptible to visible changes due to collagen loss or environmental damage and can become thinner over time. They often lose their natural contours and can eventually begin to flatten and droop. Of course, genetics also play an important role in determining lip shape, as well as how these features change as we age.
When it comes to altering the lips, Juvéderm Volbella® is an ideal choice if you are hoping for a modest size increase and for fine-tuning small areas by adding definition. This filler helps to add structure to the lip borders to improve the shape of the lips or to smooth fine or deep perioral wrinkles, which occur around the mouth and are sometimes referred to as smoker’s lines or lipstick lines. Volbella® has a very thin, light consistency, providing results that look very subtle and believable when added to the lips.
The other option, Juvederm Ultra®, is the go-to injectable lip augmentation choice for those who want to make their lips significantly fuller. It has a thicker texture than Volbella®, which makes it better for more noticeable volumizing. If you’re unsure about which type of injectable is the most suitable choice for you, we can recommend one after learning your goals and examining your lips at a consultation.
