Have you wanted to enhance your natural beauty … without looking like you’ve “gotten something done”? A lip plumper injection could be the solution you’ve been searching for. At MW Dentistry & Esthetics, our Anderson dental team loves to help our patients feel their best and look their best. With lip-plumping injections, we can create a more youthful appearance. The effect is subtle and natural-looking – your friends may say you look younger, but they likely won’t notice you’ve had a cosmetic procedure.
How Lip Plumping Works
A lip plumper contains the same type of material used in dermal fillers (injections that correct wrinkles, fine lines, and facial hollows). When injected into the lips, the dermal gel adds a subtle depth of volume and can also help minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth.
As with any cosmetic procedure, it’s important to choose a licensed provider for your lip-plumping injection. Dr. Molly is a licensed esthetic injection provider, and as a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, she is committed to staying up-to-date on the latest advances in both dental and esthetics care.
What to Expect During a Lip Plumper Procedure
Lips contain more than one million nerve endings, so injections in the lips can be quite uncomfortable. However, as a medical provider, we are able to administer medication that makes this procedure painless.
The effects of lip-plumping injections can last six to twelve months, and a licensed professional knows exactly how much filler to administer to produce a natural look.
Who Are Lip Plumping Injections For?
The people who come to see us for lip plumping injections come from all walks of life – parents, grandparents, business owners, self-employed entrepreneurs, and more. What all these people have in common is that they aren’t fully satisfied with how their lips look. Perhaps their lips have always been thin, or their lips have lost some of their natural fullness.
It’s actually normal for esthetic changes to happen as a person grows older, because the body’s natural production of collagen — the most abundant protein in the body and the main contributor to skin’s suppleness and tone — tends to decline with age. Lip plumper injections restore the lips’ full and youthful appearance, revitalizing a smile and providing a subtle confidence boost, too.
