What Is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation refers to any procedure that is done in order to increase size and fullness of the lips. Whether you have noticed your lips thinning over time or just want fuller lips, lip augmentation can be achieved a number of ways.
How Does It Work?
At NuReveal lip augmentation is achieved by injecting a cosmetic filler, or collagen-like substance, into the lips. This procedure may be enhanced with PRP, platelet rich plasma, from the client’s own blood. Adding PRP to the procedure can enhance the effects of the treatment and may create longer lasting results.
What Are The Benefits?
- A perfectly plump pout can be achieved in less than an hour.
- Little to no downtime.
- Natural looking lips that last.
When Are Results Noticeable?
Results are visible immediately. Swelling and possible bruising resolve within about 1 week. Lipstick may be worn immediately following the procedure.
How Long Do The Results Last?
Although there are many fillers to choose from, the clinicians at NuReveal
prefer to use the Restylane® line of products. For clients that desire greater definition to lip borders and/or cupid’s bow with natural results, we may recommend Restylane Silk®. Results typically last 4-6 months.
Is The Procedure Painful?
The Restylane® line of products contain a local anesthetic (lidocaine), therefore minimal to no discomfort is experienced during the procedure. A topical anesthetic may also be applied to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Patients may also opt for a dental block which will numb the entire mouth and eliminate any discomfort during the procedure.
How Much Does The Procedure Cost?
Cost depends on the results desired. Your NuReveal clinician will recommend the appropriate volume of filler required to achieve your individual desired results.
