Thin, wrinkled, or asymmetrical lips can be a lifelong concern (thanks, Mom!) or simply a normal effect of aging. But whatever the cause, if your lips aren't as full as you'd like, there's now a well-established way to add some volume.
Lip augmentation is a relatively straightforward method for perfecting the size and shape of lips — in that it's always achieved by an injection treatment — but beyond that common ground, there are a lot of options. Let's take a look at the lip injections
available to Walnut Creek, Danville, and other area patients here at Essential Aesthetics
Why I Rely on Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers
In my practice, I prefer to use injectable fillers
to augment the lips rather than other methods, such as collagen injections or implants. Gel-based injectables give me much more control during injections, allowing me to add precise volume and shape where my patients want it most. My favorite fillers for lip augmentation
, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA®
, are incredibly smooth and soft. They leave behind lips that feel quite natural, with an even result that has no lumps or hardness.
products are popular among my San Ramon-area patients
because they're pre-formulated with lidocaine. The addition of this popular and safe anesthetic makes injections much more comfortable. Most patients liken it to a quick pinch.
The Treatment Session
You'll be in and out of the office
in just a few minutes, with essentially instant results that you can enjoy for months. That makes it accessible and easy, whether you're young and you've inherited naturally thin lips or you're a bit older and are experiencing newly diminished volume. Either way, I think you'll be pleased when you see your beautiful results.
