In case you haven’t noticed full, luscious lips are very fashionable right now. Thank you Kylie Jenner! In the real world most of us aren’t born looking like a supermodel or reality TV star. But that doesn’t mean it’s not possible to have a sexy, beautiful pout. Thanks to temporary hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers such as Restylane at least our dream lips can be a reality. HA fillers not only give our lips volume, they have the advantage of being highly compatible with human tissue. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar molecule which we all have in our body, the chance of having an allergic is extremely rare. So if you’ve been considering having a lip enhancement for some time but you’re not sure where to start, consider the Mini Lip Plump for the following three reasons:
First things first, the Mini Lip Plump – what is it? Injecting half a cc or syringe or of dermal filler qualifies as a Mini Lip Plump. If it’s your first time getting your lips done and you’re a little apprehensive then you may want to consider starting with less than a full syringe. This way you can experience the treatment to know exactly what you’re getting yourself into.The Mini can give you a little more volume in the fleshy part or definition at the Vermillion border. The augmentation will be modest but noticeable. Do expect some swelling which normally subsides after 48 hours. If you still want bigger lips you can always go back for more. Be warned: most people love the results but want additional volume and plumpness.
As we age our lips lose volume, definition and start to look dry and worn out. Sometimes all that’s needed is a little hyaluronic acid injected closer to the surface of the lips to fill out any fine lines and to make the lips look more hydrated. HA molecules have the ability to attract 1000 times their weight in water. Even still, the Mini doesn’t add a lot of volume but rather gives the lips a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. If on the other hand your lips have lost definition, then your half syringe can be used for enhancing the border instead. Technically not a mini lip plump, the filler can be used to treat vertical upper lip lines or ‘smoker’s lines.’
The most obvious reason to get a Mini Lip Plump is if you’re on a budget. Half a syringe will be more economical and some clinics even offer Mini Lip Plump promotions to attract the younger patients. If you choose to go with this service, however, it’s important to have realistic expectations about your results. You won’t be able to achieve improved volume, definition and projection with such a small amount of filler. So choose one aspect of your lips like to enhance and focus on that. That’s why it’s important to discuss your goals and expectations with your Toronto or Burlington dermal filler injector ahead of time to ensure you’re happy with your results.
