If you’ve been thinking about giving your lips a refresh, there’s no better time than the month of love! Whether you want to enhance your lips for a special someone or just to practice some self-care, we offer a variety of treatments to help you achieve a fuller, more supple pout for Valentine’s Day and beyond.
Wondering which services are right for you? Let’s explore the best ways to show your lips some love:
For subtle, natural-looking lip enhancement, look no further than Juvéderm Volbella! Stave off thinning lips and restore volume without downtime using this lip filler. Volbella is highly sought-after for its ability to add volume to both the upper and lower lips, smooth vertical creases and improve the lips’ contours. Since it’s made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps cells retain moisture, Volbella can help you achieve fullness in the lips that looks both authentic and stunning. With just one treatment session, you can achieve amazing results that can last up to a year. This lip filler features smaller molecules and a thinner gel, making it the go-to option for those seeking precise improvements.
For bolder augmentation, you may prefer Restylane, a thicker HA-based gel that’s ideal for plumping up the lips and smoothing lip lines and nasolabial folds without extensive downtime. Specifically formulated to give your lips more fullness and definition, Restylane can help you achieve the lips of your dreams with just one treatment session lasting 15 to 60 minutes. Unlike Volbella, which provides instant improvement, you’ll see your results from Restylane in just a few days following treatment with improvements lasting up to 10 months. Effortlessly fight the tell-tale signs of aging in the lips with the volumizing power of Restylane!
Post-treatment lip care
One of the most important parts of the lip enhancement process is post-care! Newly treated lips are particularly vulnerable to the sun’s rays and high heat, as well as strenuous exercise that can exacerbate bruising or swelling. It’s crucial to keep your lips protected, not only during recovery, but in the weeks and months following your aesthetic treatment. Your lips will thank you!
