Many people have thin lips due to genetics. Another leading cause is the loss of lip volume that comes with age. Injectables are often used to restore lost volume, improve lip lines and enhance lip size. Horvath Aesthetics offers several types of injectables to give you the luscious lips you’re lusting after without invasive surgery or silicone implants. Dr. David Horvath is a board-certified plastic surgeon and aesthetics expert who will help you determine which of these injectables will give you your desired results.
1. Botox Lip Flip
Aging and gravity can lead to lip lines and cause the mouth to turn downward. Botox can minimize the creases in the upper and lower lips and turn the mouth corners upward for a better contour and appearance. This renowned injectable works by temporarily weakening or paralyzing the lip muscles responsible for specific lines and wrinkles. This paralysis is completely harmless, and in the expert hands of Dr. Horvath, will achieve your desired look.
Dr. Horvath injects Botox into the middle portion of the upper lip, targeting the underlying muscle and creating an upward curvature and lengthening of the lip, for enhancement without adding volume. Botox can be combined with a lip filler for more dramatic results. The treatment takes 10 to 15 minutes and requires no downtime. Botox results typically last three to four months.
2. Juvéderm Volbella XC for Lip Lines and Enhancement
Juvéderm Volbella XC is FDA-approved to improve lipstick lines and for lip augmentation. The crystal-clear hyaluronic acid gel is injected around or into the lips for temporary results that smoothen lines and increase the lips’ contour. Volbella can correct perioral lines above the upper lip and is designed specifically for lip treatment. In clinical trials, Juvéderm Volbella XC offered incredibly effective lip enhancement and improvement for perioral lines and oral commissures with less swelling than Restylane. Results from this lip filler are often immediate and last up to a year.
3. Restylane Kysse and Contour for Lip Flip and Smoker’s Lines
Restylane is also in the hyaluronic acid family of dermal fillers with two variations designed for the lips: Restylane Kysse and Restylane Contour. Kysse is made with Xpress Han technology for a flexible gel that provides natural-looking lip enhancement. Dr. Horvath injects Kysse into the lines around the upper lip and into the lips for a smoother, fuller contour. In clinical trials, 98% of patients were satisfied with the “kysse-ability” of their lips.
Restylane Contour uses a larger, calibrated gel size than Kysse to smoothen upper lip lines and provide luscious lips. Restylane Kysse and Contour results may last up to a year and require no recovery.
With continued treatments, you can enjoy long-lasting lip enhancement with these injectables.
