Your lips are a prominent feature of your facial beauty. You deserve luscious, full lips that enhance your natural features without giving you an overexaggerated appearance.
At Henderson Women’s Care, Dr. Douglas Tanita and our expert team are ready to help improve your lips and boost your confidence with the best lip enhancement in the Las Vegas area.
What Is Lip Augmentation?
Full, sexy lips are a sign of youthful beauty. However, as we age, our bodies naturally slow the production of collagen and elastin, which are necessary for healthy, plump, and resilient lips. Some people were born with thinner lips, and others just want more prominent lips than they have. For all these patients, lip augmentation is a minimally invasive treatment that uses dermal fillers for with zero downtime and high reward.
At Henderson Women’s Care, we perform lip augmentation to sculpt your lips, giving your natural appearance a more youthful and refreshed look without creating unrealistic results.
Typically, dermal fillers for lip augmentation are hyaluronic acid-based. As a naturally occurring substance in the human body, hyaluronic acid is biocompatible, so it poses minimal risks for most patients. Hyaluronic acid fillers also help increase collagen production, which continues improving your lips’ appearance over time.
For lip augmentation, Dr. Tanita recommends Juvéderm. We may also suggest neuromodulators such as Botox and Xeomin to help relax the muscles that cause perioral wrinkles.
Botox can also create a non-surgical lip flip by relaxing the muscles that connect to the upper lip, allowing it to relax and curl outward, thus creating the appearance of fullness without fillers.
Following lip augmentation, most patients notice an immediate improvement. While your lips may look or feel a bit swollen, the swelling will typically subside within a week. Dermal fillers create plumper, more youthful-looking lips for approximately 12 to 18 months.
Patients who receive Botox will notice that muscles begin to relax and enhance the appearance of their lips within 24 to 48 hours. Results are visible within a week and typically last between three to six months.
