Have you always wanted fuller, more luscious lips? For those of us who weren’t born with lips like Angelina Jolie or Kylie Jenner, there are fortunately plenty of options available at your local beauty spa, like Jiva Spa Toronto.
Here at Jiva, we strive to provide the best lip injection clinic in Toronto, so we have several options for you to choose from. You can read more about them below.
Botox is probably the most recognizable name in the world of lip injection options. First approved for use in 1989, Botox remains one of the more unique options for injectables.
Botox works by injecting an extremely tiny amount of toxin into your muscles. This temporarily paralyzes them, which has a number of medical uses. Doctors sometimes use Botox injections to treat chronic migraines, excessive sweating, muscular disorders, and some bladder and bowel-related issues.
From a cosmetic perspective, Botox is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, and can leave you looking noticeably younger. Side effects are rare and generally mild and temporary, but can include mild pain or nausea, headaches, numbness, decreased eyesight, fatigue, swelling, redness, bleeding, or rashes. You may also develop antibodies against the active ingredient in Botox, making future treatments ineffective.
Botox treatments generally last anywhere from three to six months, depending on the individual. It generally takes anywhere from 3 to 7 days to see the full effect of the treatment.
Whereas Botox works by injecting a foreign substance into your body, most dermal injectables don’t work this way. This includes Juvederm.
Rather than paralyzing the muscles like Botox, Juvederm is an injectable filler designed to restore your youthful appearance and smooth out any fine lines and wrinkles.
The active ingredient, hyaluronic acid, is a naturally occurring sugar found in your skin, and as a result the risk of allergic reaction is minuscule. Combining with the moisture in your skin, Juvederm smoothes things out and restores your youth.
Juvederm treatments generally last longer than Botox – depending on the area treated and the specific blend used, it can last up to two years. And because of the nature of the formula, Juvederm takes effect instantly – no need to wait like Botox.
Princess is a new brand of dermal filler on the scene, but they’re quickly making a name for themselves. Like Juvederm, Princess brand dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, but they use a different formula.
Princess fillers can be used to replace volume and structure in your face which has been lost as a result of the aging process or due to sun exposure. It’s designed to stimulate collagen production, which simply encourages your skin’s natural healing abilities.
Because Princess hasn’t been on the market as long, it isn’t as well known as the others in this list. However, here at Jiva Spa Toronto we’ve been seeing some great results with our clients who have opted for the Princess route.
We’re now featuring a certified nurse practitioner and medical doctor on staff to administer these treatments, so you can be sure you’re receiving the best and safest treatment possible.
