Lip Augmentation by Parfaire
Have you noticed lately your pout could use a little (or a lot of) plumping? A full and well defined lip characterizes a youthful and attractive mouth. But as our faces ages, lips lose its natural curve and definition. The ageing lip process comes mainly from two factors: muscle ageing and photo-ageing.*
With ageing, the muscle thins out and the lips appear deflated and lose their tone. Photo-ageing speeds up the breakdown of collagen, the loss of collagen results in wrinkles and loss of volume. The corners of the mouth also pull down and give a frowning and unhappy look. These “smoker’s lines” or “barcode lines” around the mouth may be increased by waxing the upper lips as well as smoking as basic mouth movements.*
Dermal fillers for lip augmentation can instantly restore volume, shape, redefine the border of the lip, and even soften fine lines around the mouth.* Our doctor can carefully enhance your own natural contours to create the ideal shape and fullness for you. *
There are a range of dermal fillers today available for lip augmentation. Most commonly used dermal fillers are Juvederm, Restylane, and the newest FDA approved is Volbella.*
*Individual results will vary.
How does Parfaire’s Lip Enhancement work?
Our customized Lip Enhancement treatment works using FDA-approved, smooth gel formations of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in your body which impact cellular hydration. This helps smooth, plump and volumize your pout.*
Fillers are all manufactured at top-level laboratories in the U.S. which are not made using any animal source and are synthetic, so there is little chance of allergic reaction.*
How soon should you see results with Parfaire’s Lip Enhancement and how long does it last?
Dermal fillers typically last between 3-6 months for most patients, although the duration may vary in some cases.* Our newest FDA-approved injectable called Volbella, however, can last up to a year.*
Injections are temporary and some last less than others because of mouth movement which wears down the filler, which are eventually absorbed by the body. To maintain long lasting optimal results, touch-ups and additional treatments are usually recommended.*
What should you expect during and after your treatment?
During your consultation prior to your treatment, Dr. Winnie Moses will carefully map your natural lip structure to design the ideal shape and fullness. After carefully evaluating and understanding your treatment goals, we apply medical grade numbing cream and ice to lips to minimize any discomfort related to the injection. Then she will use finest needle or microcannula methodically place the filler to create your ideal shape and fullness. You may experience some localized swelling and/or redness for a few hours after treatment.*
Is there any downtime with Parfaire’s Lip Enhancement?
Mild swelling and bruising might occur after lip fillers are injected, but it varies person to person as everyone reacts to the filler differently. An ice pack may be applied to reduce swelling and bruising. Generally if there is any swelling, it should dissipate within 2-3 days, and in some cases, up to a week. Small lumps are common at this time and can be massaged gently as they will be absorbed. If these lumps are larger or persist they can be corrected.*
How much does Parfaire’s Lip Enhancement cost?
The cost of this treatment depends on your goals to be achieved. Whether you want a subtle or more dramatic enhancement, Dr. Moses will assess your best options during your free personalized consultation.*
How does Parfaire’s Lip Enhancement compare to others?
Parfaire features a one-of-a-kind lip diagram is used to map out the best injection sites on your mouth, depending on whether you want a subtle, gradual enhancement, instant augmentation, or to slowly reach a more dramatic appearance over time. We can space out your appointments every few weeks for a more gradual effect on your lips, depending on how quickly you want to achieve your desired look, and along the way, we will document how we are working to achieve your desired look. If you want a more dramatic, instant augmentation in just one or two visits, we can accommodate that as well.*
