“Beverly Hills lips” has recently become the most commonly used term when referring to the non-surgical approach to lip augmentation. Non-surgical lip augmentation is carried out using hyaluronic acid-based injectable dermal fillers. It is indicated at any age, young or old, to treat lips that are thin, deflated, wrinkled, or have lost their contour. The result is enhanced upper and lower lips that are fuller and plumper with a defined lip contour.
What Product Is Used?
A variety of injectable fillers work well for lip augmentation. The safest and ideal products are hyaluronic acid-based and are on the market today. Restylane and Juvederm are commonly used in the U.S and injected in the same fashion. They contain lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic, making the injections tolerable. Results vary depending on the injection technique and outcome requested.
Why Beverly Hills Lips?
Although lip augmentation by way of dermal fillers has been practiced for some time, “Beverly Hills lips” refer to enhanced lips by way of a particular technique using a specific combination of dermal fillers. Beverly Hills lips earned the name after celebrity model Kylie Jenner. Her lips, which she admits are regularly enhanced at her physician’s office, are the best example of Beverly Hills lips.
For Beverly Hills lip augmentation in McLean, VA, two particular products are favored to achieve this result: Voluma and Juvederm Ultra. Voluma is the latest of the Juvederm range of Hyaluronic Acids. Although Voluma is the specialty product for volumizing the midface with its thick, robust consistency, physicians are opting to use its lifting qualities to lift the vermillion border and oral commissure of the lips. Combining both products, Voluma and Juvederm Ultra (the other product in the Juvederm family) creates a perfect outcome. Your lips will have an uplifted vermillion border, an enhanced cupid’s bow, a defined philtrum, and a fuller red part of the lip. Dr. Rostami has perfected the Beverly Hills lips; their results produce pouty lips that look youthful, fuller, and sexy with a volume that contributes to the balance of your face.
What Is The Recovery Like?
The procedure has zero downtime. Since the lips are highly vascularized, you may experience a bit of swelling which will make your lips appear a bit larger and tender for a few days. Certain patients may experience some bruising, which will also subside in a few days. You are advised not to consume any aspirin or products containing aspirin to reduce bruising.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Lip augmentation with dermal fillers typically lasts 3 to 6 months with instant results. On the other hand, the Beverly Hills lip augmentation can last up to 12 months due to the long-lasting quality, which the combination of Voluma and Juvederm create.
What Is The Average Cost?
The cost will vary depending on the products used and the amount of product required to achieve your desired result. Your cost can range between $1000 and $4000, an amount that you and your physician can control. The more product, the more voluptuous your lips will become. Individual results will vary.
