Foolproof Ways to Get Luscious Lips

Luscious Lips

If you want thick, plump, juicy lips like your favorite celeb, don’t fall for the viral challenges on the internet. Instead, take a look at the options below so you can get beautiful, natural-looking results that last. Some are topical, and others are surgical, but no matter which one you choose, you are sure to enjoy your new luscious and kissable lips.

Exfoliate Daily

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface layers of your lips, which can go a long way toward enhancing their healthy appearance. At the same time, though, exfoliation also stimulates blood flow, which fills out your lips and makes them look naturally plumper. The best way to exfoliate your lips is with a simple at-home scrub made from white sugar and honey. Just mix the two together, place it on your lips, and scrub away – gently. Rinse it off, repeat it daily, and you’ll see a tremendous difference in no time flat.

Fillers or Botox

Which is the Better Option: Fillers or Botox?

Fillers or Botox

There’s a big difference between Botox injections and facial fillers like Juvederm and Restylane. Though both can provide similar results for some common problems, there are situations in which one may be much better or produce longer-lasting results than the other. Here’s what you need to know about both options, so you can choose the one that works best for your unique skin.

Understanding Botox and How It Works

Botox injections contain small amounts of botulinum toxin, and while it is related to a form of food poisoning known as botulism at the molecular level, it is important to remember that Botox is safe. It is a purified and natural protein that can relax facial muscles just under the skin, thus smoothing the appearance of wrinkles. It is the first and most well-known product of its kind, so it has been studied extensively. Treatments take just a few minutes, and while there is no real downtime, patients may experience some discomfort and swelling for a day or two. The results last anywhere from two to eight months, and most patients return for touch up treatments after about four months.

5 Facial Procedures with the Least Amount of Downtime

Least Amount of Downtime

If you’re thinking of getting a facelift or another significant surgery, but the prospect of a lengthy recovery has you second-guessing yourself, it may be wise to consider other options. Here, you will learn more about five different facial procedures with very little downtime (if any at all) that can rejuvenate your skin to make you look and feel decades younger.

#1 – Botox Injections

Botox is a simple, easy way to minimize and perhaps even erase the appearance of even the deepest wrinkles. During a session, your facial aesthetics team will inject the “problem areas” you describe with a small amount of botulinum toxin, which essentially relaxes the muscles just below your face. In turn, this relaxes the skin and helps smooth out wrinkles. Following each session, patients may experience a little discomfort, swelling, and redness, but this is temporary and typically goes away in a day or two. The results last anywhere from two to eight months with most patients returning for treatments after four months.
