What is the Lip Enhancement Process? 

Lip enhancement is a popular cosmetic procedure that sculpts full and plump lips. It 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 signs of aging, and boost collagen production – providing the mouth 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, Juvéderm lip enhancement is among the most sought after cosmetic procedures.

The Treatment Experience: What to Expect

Your injections will be done in the privacy of our Nashville area office. To begin, Dr. Moran will mark the treatment area. She will then inject the appropriate amount of Juvéderm beneath your skin, before massaging the site for even distribution. You can expect a temporary tingling sensation immediately following the procedure. This is normal and will fade soon.

After your Appointment

Lip enhancement patients can expect swelling, bruising, and lumps for a few days, but these effects are temporary and will subside quickly. You may find it difficult to smile initially, but this side effect will also dissipate as the gel settles into the treatment area. 

You’ll need to avoid sun exposure and applying unnecessary pressure on your face for a few days after your appointment. Being gentle with the treatment area will ensure that the gel stays in place as your body absorbs it. 

The Results

Lip enhancement results are apparent immediately and will continue to improve over time. In addition, the results are extremely long-lasting, with many of our Franklin, TN patients enjoying a transformation that endures between six months to one year. Once the effect begins to fade, you will need to return to the office for maintenance injections if you wish to preserve your plump lips.
