Millennials Mad for Lip Fillers

Original Article By Greenwich Medical Spa Staff. When it comes to today’s aesthetic medical treatments, Millennials are giving middle-aged women a run for their money. Yes, gals in their 20s and 30s are visiting the spa for facials and laser hair removal, but recently, what Millennials ask for most is lip fillers. Among this generation, the popularity of injections to create luscious lips has skyrocketed.

For young women, it’s not age that has brought on a thin lip. It’s social media, or specifically Instagram. It might have gotten kicked off by Kim Kardashian and other members of her family, but today, the Instagram look is all the rage among young people. Injections of Juvéderm and Restylane hyaluronic acid fillers are used to augment lips and create an Instagram-worthy pout.

Having lip injections can help balance the face and change a woman’s appearance in a good way. For older women, dermal fillers are used to replace lost plumpness and fill tiny “smoker’s lines” that come from age, not necessarily smoking. But for younger women, the goal is often a fuller-than-natural look.

Taking cues from the latest Instagram models, Millennials ask for noticeable results, which can mean two to three syringes of filler. Creating a pucker that full may necessitate a couple treatments because only so much product can be injected at a time. In fact, many of the preferred lip looks you see on Instagram are the result of multiple injection sessions.

At Greenwich Medical Spa, our experienced nurse practitioners and physician assistants are able to create the lips du jour for women of all ages, and we use a variety of fillers with different thickness to achieve the ideal look for each face. We love the immediate results of this treatment but know that injections cause swelling for a few days, so we ask our patients to return in two weeks when we can confirm symmetry and a perfectly even lip line. Because we prefer to start small and safely add more product if desired, we also have a follow-up conversation about the results achieved.

Whether you are a young patient bringing in your favorite Instagram photo as a prototype or are a 40-something woman seeking the return of your youthful pout, we are ready to help you love your lips as much as you love Kim’s.

Come visit us at our locations in Greenwich, Westport or Scarsdale to see what your best lip filler or lip injetion solutions are.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can EMSCULPT NEO do for me?

EMSCULPT NEO is an amazing noninvasive body sculpting treatment. It’s perfect for patients who are looking to get summer body ready! With this state-of-the-art, two-in-one technology, you build muscle and burn fat at the same time! This treatment provides a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and 25% growth in muscle on the treated area after a recommended number of treatments.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

While you lie down and relax, EMSCULPT NEO sends high-intensity energies deep below your skin, making your muscles contract in a big way that is like doing thousands of crunches or squats in a few minutes. While your muscles are contracting, the energy from the applicator simultaneously sends warmth to your fat cells, heating them up to the point of destruction. So you build real muscle from the contractions while destroying fat cells that are later naturally eliminated by your body.

How many EMCULPT NEO treatments will I need?

The recommended treatment plan is 4-6 treatments, one week apart. Depending on the patient, you may see improvement in your muscle tone, core strength and posture within a few weeks. And you’ll see fat reduction continue for about 12 weeks after your last treatment.

Are there any patients for whom you do not recommend EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is great because it has been shown to be safe and approved for all body and skin types. Contraindications include hernia, recent surgery, and pregnancy, so if a patient has any of these conditions, they should wait until they don’t to get EMSCULPT NEO.

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT NEO?

CoolSculpting is a well-known treatment that is excellent for reducing unwanted fat in targeted areas. EMSCULPT NEO also reduces fat, but it has the benefit of building muscle, which is what its predecessor EMSCULPT was made to do.

Which treatment you choose depends on what your body needs and your personal goals. If you have great muscle tone and only need to get rid of some extra fat in a specific area like your abdomen or below your chin, CoolSculpting is an excellent option. But if you have loss of muscle tone and need more of a lift or tightening to a certain area like your abs or butt, EMSCULPT NEO is your two-in-one solution.

What is your favorite thing about EMSCULPT NEO?

Not only is this treatment super convenient with one treatment lasting only 30 minutes, but there is also no downtime! Patients can go about their day as they normally would immediately after their visit.
