Lip Injections Calgary: Overview, Hyaluronic Acid


Fuller lips have been long associated with youth and beauty, so it’s no wonder so many people are heading in the direction of lip injections in Calgary, such as Juvéderm.

Juvéderm is an inject-able gel used during the lip enhancement procedure, and is derived from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the body.  When hyaluronic acid combines with water found in the body, the result is an immediate restoration of volume in the lips, while maintaining a healthy, hydrated appearance.  The smooth consistency of the gel allows for a soft, natural look after the treatment is complete, lasting nine months to a year.  Over time, the filler is absorbed by the body, returning the lips to their original, pre-injected appearance.

Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body; therefore, the procedure is safe with no down-time.  The treatment is relatively painless thanks to a local anesthetic (Lidocaine) found in the product itself.  After the procedure, redness, swelling and some minor bruising may be experienced but this usually tends to last a few days to a week.  The procedure is simple, reversible, non-invasive and non-permanent.

Performed by a doctor or registered nurse, we can help you take what you already have and enhance it to help you become the most beautiful you.  Even the subtlest change can make the biggest difference about how you feel about yourself!
