Sometimes, cosmetic lip injections get overdone. We’ve all seen it. Unfortunately, there are some obvious cases of lip injections gone awry that may cause Waterloo women and men to hold back on what is a very positive non-invasive treatment option.
We’re here to reassure you that a lip injection treatment done by an expert injector, like The Beauty Nurse® Team at The Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, is sure to be a positive and beautiful experience.
Can lip fillers reshape lips?
Yes. While the goal is often to make the lips plumper and fuller, lip augmentation is also a powerful tool for reshaping the lips. By balancing proportions and improving symmetry, we can achieve a harmonious and balanced look. This is especially beneficial for patients who have a thin upper lip or unevenness throughout the shape of their lips. Using a dermal filler made with hyaluronic acid (HA) like JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA®, precise injections create volume, definition, and shape where they’re needed. These results usually need only 1 to 2 lip injection sessions.
In the photos before, you can see the difference one or two syringes of lip fillers can make on the shape of the lips.
You can learn more about how hyaluronic acid-based lip fillers plump up the lips in this Healthline article.
How can I make my top lip bigger without fillers?
While most people turn to lip fillers to increase the size of their upper lip, a lip flip with BOTOX COSMETIC® can make the upper lip look fuller without actually adding volume. Your injector will make precise injections into the upper lip’s muscle to achieve this full upper lip appearance. These injections cause the lip muscle to relax, flipping the lip slightly upward and exposing more of the lip’s red vermillion. If you want to reduce a gummy smile and increase the appearance of your upper lip’s fullness, a lip flip may give you the results you want. A lip flip with BOTOX can also be combined with lip fillers to create overall fullness and an appealing shape.
The Instagram post below shows a patient before and after she had Dysport® injections (a neuromodulator similar to BOTOX) to reduce her gummy smile. Even though she already had a beautiful upper lip, you can see how the lip flip enhanced her upper lip further.
