Pucker Up, Santa! How to Get a Sexier Pout

Lip Enhancement Guilford, CT | New Haven Whether you’re married to Santa Claus himself or if you just want to be caught kissing him under the mistletoe, you need to make sure that you have the best, kissable pout on the block. We have created a brief guide listing a few ways to make sure that your lips are ready for some holiday action.

Exfoliate

Nothing can make your lips more chapped quite like dehydration and the cold weather. Make sure that you are exfoliating your lips with an all natural sugar scrub 1-2 times per week. The natural exfoliant in sugar will help to get rid of the dry skin and leave you with smoother, kissable lips.

Moisturize

In addition to exfoliating, make sure that you are also moisturizing your lips— especially if you’re an avid lipstick wearer. To moisturize, you can use a variety of different products including vaseline or even coconut oil. Just make sure to apply it to your lips throughout the day and especially before you go to bed at night.

Fillers

Want to make a statement and make Santa never forget your big kiss? Consider getting dermal fillers from Dr. Gary J. Price. Dermal fillers like Restylane and Perlane are especially good at adding natural looking volume to your lips almost instantly. By strategically placing injections on your lips and around your mouth, you can get fuller lips just in time to greet Santa under the mistletoe.

Stay Hydrated

Another great way to make sure your lips are as soft and supple as ever? Stay hydrated. The more hydrated you are, the more moisturized your skin, hair, and lips will be. Try drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day.

Get ready to lay one on Santa this holiday season with a refreshed pout. To learn more about fillers or to schedule your consultation, contact our Guilford office today!

Pucker Up for the Mistletoe: The Difference Between Juvederm and Restylane

lip injections guildford ctWhether you have someone who you’ve been kissing under the mistletoe for years or if you are trying to capture someone new’s attention this holiday season, make sure that you have the sexiest pout possible and consider getting lip injections. As a temporary way to plump up your pout and enhance your natural look, injections like Juvederm and Restylane are popular amongst most patients. But what is the difference between these two injectables? Read on to learn more.

The first thing to know about these fillers is that they are both made up of the same ingredient: hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is an organic sugar that exists in your living cells and works alongside collagen to help plump up your skin while adding moisture to it as well. Now that you know the common thread between Juvederm and Restylane, let’s discuss the differences.

Juvederm

One of the main things that patients like about Juvederm is that it has a smooth texture which means that patients w ho get Juvederm won’t have to worry about massaging bumps out of their lips after injections. Additionally, Juvederm contains 35% more hyaluronic than Restylane which means that it lasts significantly longer— up to a year in most patients— meaning that you won’t have to worry about maintaining your lip injections quite as frequently.

Restylane

Restylane is notorious for having a more granular texture. However, because of this granular texture, it makes Restylane more pliable, which means that it’s easier for doctors like Gary J. Price to mold and manipulate in your lips. If you are looking to add a substantial amount of volume to your lips, then Restylane is going to be the better option.

Get your lips ready to stand under the mistletoe this holiday season and consider getting lip injections from Dr. Gary J. Price. If you would like to learn more about lip injections or other cosmetic procedures, contact Dr. Gary J. Price’s office today!

Pump and Plump: How to Choose the Right Filler for Your Lips

Filler for Your LipsThere’s no denying that a woman with full, voluminous lips is sexy. If you have naturally thin lips or have lips that you simply would like to enhance, then you may want to consider contacting Gary J. Price in order to learn more about dermal fillers. As two of the most popular fillers on the market, both Restylane and Juvederm are two dermal fillers that are popular amongst most patients. Read on to learn more about how you can choose the right lips for you.

Similarities

The first thing to know about both Juvederm and Restylane is that they are both made up of the same ingredient: hyaluronic acid. As an ingredient that is naturally found in our bodies, hyaluronic acid works to plump up skin and lips. However, although Juvederm and Restylane are composed of the same ingredient, they act a bit differently and contain different doses of it.

Juvederm

If you are simply looking to fill in fine lines and wrinkles above and around your lips, then Juvederm will be a great choice for you. Not only is Juvederm a bit more pliable but Juvederm also contains a higher dose of hyaluronic acid, which means that it will laser longer. Additionally, Juvederm can not only fill in those pesky fine lines and wrinkles, but it can also be used to add a bit more of a plump look to your lips as well.

Restylane

If you are looking to add more volume to your lips in a big and noticeable way, Restylane is the better choice. By being cohesive after being injected, Restylane stays in place which makes it easier for Dr. Gary J. Price to work with.

Choosing between Juvederm and Restylane may seem like an impossible decision for you to make. However, during your consultation with Dr. Gary J. Price, he will go over your options and help you make the best choice. To learn more or to schedule your consultation, contact our office today!
