If you’re happy with your lips, you may not pay them too much attention other than the occasional dab of chapstick or swipe of gloss. But if you are unhappy with the size or plumpness of your lips, it may plague you on a daily basis. Full and sumptuous lips with strong definition are a sign of youth, beauty, and even sexuality, and many women with thin lips feel frustrated that they can’t enjoy a pout like Angeline Jolie’s.
Before now, the only solutions to this problem involved unreliable at-home methods or complicated surgeries with extensive recovery periods. With new advances in medical science, dermal fillers like Juvederm Ultra are now available to offer safe injections that naturally create fuller lips.
About Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus
These two closely related injections both serve the purpose of adding volume to your lips, but Juvederm Ultra is a thinner gel most appropriate if you have thin lips and need subtle enhancement. Juvederm Ultra Plus, on the other hand, is a thicker gel that can add noticeable volume to the lips for robust and plump results.
The Science Behind the Injections
The Juvederm formula utilizes a smooth gel of hyaluronic acid to plump the lips. Hyaluronic acid works so efficiently because it already occurs naturally in the body and retains a great deal of moisture to help boost the volume and softness of your lips.
Hyaluronic acid works immediately, so you can see a difference just minutes after the injection. And while it’s a quick miracle, the results are also long-lasting! 78 percent of participants in clinical trials reported they were pleased with the results one full year after their injections. Even better, if you return for a second treatment after the first treatment dissipates, you will not need as much product to achieve the same results.
This procedure takes only about 30 minutes, and the recovery process is simple. In just a few days, you will be ready to flaunt your plump lips with your favorite shade of gloss.
