Love Your Lips™: Your Treatment

Lip Augmentation is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the volume of the lips. Many people are unhappy with the small, flat nature of one or both of their lips. In recent years the lips of Scarlett Johansson and Angelina Jolie have been much envied among women seeking to achieve the same. Drug store lip glosses claiming to achieve a “plump” often fall short of the desired effect, so for more significant and longer lasting results, many women turn to nonsurgical lip enhancement.

Dr. Jaffer created his own lip injections method called the Love Your Lips™ technique. He developed this process because many of his patients expressed their desire for more natural-looking lips when having lip injections. This technique is only available for patients of Heights Laser Centre and allows our physicians to provide them with more targeted and precise change. This technique is also considered a min-lip augmentation that will leave you with that perfect, kissable pout.

Lip contouring and wrinkle reduction are achieved through the careful injection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the area. Topical anesthesia is applied to numb the area, and then various amounts of Juvéderm or Belotero are injected to achieve the look you desire.

After this quick and effective procedure, the vertical wrinkles above the lips will be significantly reduced, leaving behind smooth, youthful skin. The lips can be shaped to add definition, giving you a subtle and appealing pout. Thin lips can be volumized by our full lip augmentation treatment, which results in full and luscious lips.

After Your Treatment: Recuperation & Results

It is common for patients to want to know all the details about when they can kiss again and how they can kiss again after having lip injections. This is a very legitimate question. After all, what good is a plump pout if you can’t use it? We caution our patients that they may experience some minor pain and swelling on their lips or near the injection sites for several hours after having the treatment. Therefore, you may not be in the mood to kiss anyone, but if you are, we recommends that you wait at least 1-2 days before participating in any “heavy” kissing. This is because the dermal filler will need adequate time to settle and integrate with your lip tissue. However, a light kiss, such as a quick peck on your child’s head or cheek right after your lip injections is perfectly fine and will not damage your results.

Why Are Lips Asymmetrical or Thin?

Supportive collagen and elastin protein fibers in the skin tissue give lips definition and volume. Many people are not genetically blessed with plump lips and do not naturally have as much collagen there.

Environmental factors can have an impact on the appearance of the lips. Exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can sap volume from the lips and create lines and wrinkles. Smoking causes lip volume loss and wrinkles. Various traumas and metabolic issues can also affect the look of the lips.

The aging process tends to have the most impact when it comes to asymmetrical and thin lips. The area loses volume because the tissues’ collagen and elastin protein production rate declines over time. The Cupid’s Bow region at the top of the lips flattens out, and the sides of the mouth droop.

Does It Still Feel Natural to Kiss After Lip Augmentation?

Even though our physicians can provide natural-looking and feeling results, many women still wonder, “Do lip injections feel any different than real lips when kissing?” And that’s a good question. No one wants a perfect pout that looks kissable but doesn’t feel kissable.

Lip injections are the most popular way for us to provide our patients in Vancouver with plump, full lips. Though there are many different types of fillers on the market today, our physicians usually use hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvéderm by Allergan or Belotero by Merz when performing lip injection treatments. Both of these products are based on hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that is naturally occurring in the human body. A vital element in the skin, HA is a key component in the structure and moisture levels of the lips. With lower levels of HA, your lips would be thinner, more wrinkled and drier. But with increased levels, your lips would be fuller, more defined and luscious — exactly what healthy lips are. Hyaluronic acid based fillers are long-lasting and improve the appearance of his patients’ lips by adding shape, structure, and volume. The results from your Love Your Lips™ treatment won’t feel any different from your own natural lips!

Our physicians take pride in providing patients with non-surgical aesthetic treatments. Now that you know that your new lips will be perfectly kissable, why wait?
