Lip Enhancement Conveniently located to serve Franklin, Nashville, and Brentwood
Lip enhancement is a popular cosmetic procedure that gives people full and plump lips. This treatment is performed using an injectable dermal filler known as Juvéderm XC. This filler is composed of hyaluronic acid, water, and lidocaine. These components come together to form a gel that can be used to add volume to the lips, eradicate the signs of aging, and boost collagen production to provide the lips with long-lasting rejuvenation.
This treatment has become very popular due to its ability to enhance volume, shape, and structure. The effects last six months to a year. Since its approval in 2006, Juvederm lip enhancement is among the most sought after cosmetic procedures.
Preparing for Your Lip Enhancement
Before undergoing a lip enhancement using Juvéderm, you will first need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Mary Lynn Moran. During your consultation she will perform an assessment of your lips and ask about your medical history to ascertain your current state of health.
Dr. Moran is wonderful. I have always been hesitant about injectables, but she made me feel very comfortable. She is extremely knowledgeable and that also helped give me a peace of mind. I was very happy with my results!
The Lip Enhancement Procedure
As hyaluronic acid is produced naturally in the body, it is completely safe for use as an enhancer. The treatment area is marked by Dr. Moran before the injection is administered. Dr. Moran will then inject the appropriate amount of Juvéderm into the treatment area. The injection site is then massaged for even distribution. You can expect mild tingling sensation immediately following the procedure, but this is temporary feeling will subside.
Patients undergoing lip enhancement can expect swelling, bruising, and lumps for a few days after the injection, but this is temporary and will subside quickly. You may also find it difficult to smile for a couple of days but as the gel settles into the treatment area, your smile will begin to come out naturally.
The good thing about this procedure is that results are apparent immediately and continue to improve over the course of time. The results provided are long-lasting with patients experiencing a transformation that will last between 6 months to a year. Since the results are not permanent, you have to go back for maintenance injections.
As with any procedure, you will be advised to avoid being in the sun for an extended period of time to avoid applying unnecessary pressure to the face for a few days after the injection. This will ensure the Juvéderm gel stays in place as your body absorbs it.
How Much Do Lip Enhancements With Juvéderm XC Cost?
The cost of a Juvéderm treatment varies from patient to patient and depends on the needs of each individual. Dr. Moran will construct a treatment plan based on your specific needs and discuss the associated costs. This treatment is not covered by insurance as it is an elective procedure.
