What Are Lip Injections
Lip injections are the most common way of providing patients in Vancouver with fuller, plumper lips. There are several different types of fillers on the market today, but Dr. Jaffer typically uses hyaluronic acid fillers such as JUVÉDERM® by Allergan or Belotero® by Merz. Hyaluronic acid fillers are long-lasting and improve the appearance patients’ lips by adding shape, structure, and volume.
Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Dr. Jaffer uses hyaluronic acid fillers because they are the best option for lip injections on the market today. They provide the perfect support and maintains long-lasting shape for the lip tissues. Some benefits of hyaluronic acid filler benefits include:
- Control over the volume of the lips
- Less bruising than other dermal fillers
- Long-lasting results
- The option to gradually work towards desired results during several treatments
- Reversible results
