February may bring to mind romance, which brings visions of some extra kisses from that special loved one. For some, though, this might also be a reminder that you aren’t happy with your lips. Maybe you think your lips are too thin, or maybe you aren’t happy with those lines that have appeared around your mouth. Do you wish you could do something about your lips?
Tips for Great Lips
There are some tips you can try every day at home for pretty, healthy-looking lips. For instance, you should make sure that you drink lots of water, which keeps you healthy on the inside and does wonders for your skin and lips. When you want to reinvigorate lips, exfoliate them by scrubbing them gently with a washcloth or even a toothbrush. And, make sure you use the right products on your lips, such as lip balm containing shea butter, coconut oil, or vitamin E (you can even take a vitamin E capsule and cut it in half to apply the oil within directly to lips).
Unfortunately, though, although you should always take good care of yourself, there is only so much you can do at home. If at-home tips aren’t giving you the plump, luscious, youthful-looking lips you want, you might want to consider an injectable filler, such as Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®. These fillers can add volume to lips to help them look full and can reduce those lines and wrinkles around the lips.
Dermal fillers have many benefits! You’ll see results instantly (and these results will last for months) after the administration of injectables, which only takes a few minutes. You may be a bit red or bruised after the procedure, but this should go away fairly quickly. Patients report that these injections aren’t painful, although there may be some momentary discomfort.
Don’t miss out on those delectable kisses this month of love because you aren’t happy with how your lips look. Contact the office of David Bogue Plastic Surgery in Boca Raton, Florida, for more information about dermal fillers and what they can do for you. Call 561-886-1000 today!
