Plump, sexy lips are never out of style. They’re a classic sign of youth, femininity, and beauty. Unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with pillowy, full lips — but there are several treatments available at Juno Aesthetics, including a non-surgical lip lift, to help you get the lovely lips you’ve been wanting.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Julia Giyaur loves treating lips with procedures that are both minimally invasive and non-invasive. Achieving well balanced, rejuvenated lips that look plump yet natural is very rewarding for her. Allow us help you get beautiful, perfectly kissable lips.
There are some misconceptions about getting the perfect lips. In reality, your specific lips should fit in a balanced way on your face and look natural. For example, Angelina Jolie’s lips on a tiny oval face would actually look disproportional and unattractive. Because Angelina happens to have a strong jawline, however, her face is beautifully balanced. Some basic rules that were used by Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo to achieve beauty in paintings apply in cosmetic lip treatments:
Hyaluronic acid fillers are the best option to achieve the desired lip shape and volume. These products volumize and hydrate the lips, helping us to achieve that plump, luscious look and feel to the lips. Here are some lip fillers that Dr. Giyaur loves to use:
Restylane® Kysse the newest dermal filler for lips. It uses specially cross-linked hyaluronic acid to achieve perfect plumpness without bumps for longer-lasting results. It’s FDA-approved to last 6 to 9 months, but may last a full year.
When it comes to lip augmentation, Juvéderm® Ultra is excellent. It augments the lips, but also hydrates them by drawing water. It’s a tried-and-true method to enhance and volumize the lips.
Restylane Refyne is an outstanding soft hyaluronic acid filler that integrates incredibly well with the lip tissue and achieves beautiful, smooth results.
The Botox® “lip flip” is a very simple, inexpensive, quick, and safe treatment that is an alternative to a surgical lip lift. A few units of Botox are injected into the upper lip muscle to enhance the upper lip. This creates a pouty, sensual look.
While threads do not volumize lips, they do provide improved contour and enhance the collagen-building process. Threads are a great option for those who desire more structured and more defined lips, almost like a lip lift — but without more volume. Dr. Giyaur loves this treatment, especially in our more mature clients who feel that they can’t wear lipstick as well as they could before.
PDO threads are also excellent for smokers who are starting to develop upper lip lines, as PDO threads help prevent and treat these. They last the longest and stimulate collagen, so the effect lasts and lasts even after they are gone. Dr. Giyaur believes that everyone should be getting PDO threads to prevent lip aging. They work best in combination with lip fillers and Botox.
The Botox lip flip is often recommended to our patients in Brooklyn as a non-surgical alternative to a surgical lip lift, as it requires less downtime and is much less expensive, yet delivers significantly improved results.
The key to achieving beautiful, natural-looking results is to go to a licensed medical spa, because that means that all services are performed under the supervision of a licensed physician. Board-certified surgeon Dr. Julia Giyaur and her highly trained, experienced staff will help you choose the right lip enhancement option to achieve a flawless effect. Dr. Giyaur loves treating lips and applying her years of expertise and creativity to deliver just the right results for her patients. Some lip augmentation treatments can take as little as 10 minutes and last up to a year. At Juno, we believe that when you feel good about yourself, you become more confident and are able to enjoy life with renewed pleasure. We can help you achieve that.
