Lip Enhancement In Mishawaka

We see it all the time in movies and TV shows; beautiful actresses flaunting lips that are lusciously full and plump.

You may think that lips like this are only achievable for the rich and famous, but that’s simply not the case.

For years now, women have been seeking the aid of lip enhancement to achieve sumptuous “movie star” lips quickly and easily. Lip enhancement at our Mishawaka clinic is a simple way to not only enhance your appearance but boost your self-esteem as well.

What is Lip Enhancement?

Lip enhancement, or lip augmentation, is a cosmetic procedure aimed at giving the patient fuller lips and improving their outward appearance.

Most lip enhancement procedures achieve their results by the use of a dermal filler that is injected directly into the lips. Not only do these injectables improve the volume of the lips, but they help enhance the shape and structure of the lips as well.

The Centre P.C. in Mishawaka, Indiana offers lip enhancements performed using Juvederm Ultra Plus to clients from Elkhart, South Bend, and throughout the Michiana region. Approved by the FDA, the product is made using a thick hyaluronic acid gel as well as a small amount of lidocaine to reduce irritation and discomfort during the injection.

Juvederm Ultra Plus is best suited for individuals who are looking to create an eye-catching difference in the fullness of their lips. Natural looking results are noticeable nearly instantly and can last for 9 months to 1 year.

Preparing for Your Procedure

Since Juvederm Ultra Plus us a non-surgical injection, lip enhancement procedures usually take around 30 minutes to complete. Prior to the procedure, you’ll want to discontinue the use of any blood thinners (asprin, ibuprofen, etc.) as these can increase the chances of bleeding/bruising. Also, be sure to advise the professionals at The Centre PC if you are a smoker when scheduling your appointment.

Wearing comfortable clothing on the day of your procedure is one thing you can do to make the experience that much more enjoyable. You may want to consider wearing a button down shirt so that when removing your clothes before bed, you won’t have to pull any fabric over your head.

Though recovery time is minimal, you may experience some tenderness after your lip enhancement. Consider gathering some recovery supplies like ice packs and soft foods, in case your lips do feel a little sensitive afterward.

What to Expect after Lip Enhancement

Downtime after a lip enhancement procedure should be minimal. Your lips may feel a little swollen and you may experience some lingering numbness from the lidocaine. While this may make your speech a little funny sounding, you can return to work or your normal activities immediately after the injection.

If you experience severe swelling or a fever after having lip enhancement, call your doctor immediately. Most people experience minor side effects that usually dissipate within a day or two, including:

  • Redness
  • Slight swelling
  • Pain/tenderness
  • Firmness
  • Lumps/bumps
  • Bruising
  • Discoloration
  • Itching
  • Bleeding at injection site

Full, Plump, Gorgeous Lips

Not only can lip enhancement give your confidence a major boost, it can make you feel sexier than ever before. The team of professionals at The Centre P.C. in Mishawaka, Indiana can help you achieve the voluptuous lips you’ve always dreamed of, in an environment that’s safe, clean, and relaxing.
