Lip Augmentation Training for Nurses

Lip augmentation is an art form. Cosmetic injectors learn to study the intricacies of the facial form to create the perfect pout for their client.

Who can perform lip injections?

Only medical professionals such as nurses, nurse practitioners, and doctors are able to undergo training to perform cosmetic injections. With non-surgical procedures such as lip filler injections or a Botox “lip-flip” on the rise, many doctors’ offices are looking to add cosmetic procedures to increase their revenue.

Types of Lip Augmentation

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in the body. Common dermal fillers used are Juvederm, Volbella, Volure, and Restylane. Dermal fillers address concerns such as asymmetrical lips, lumps and bumps, uneven lips, and volume loss.

Benefits of using Lip Fillers

1. Control of Volume. With dermal fillers, you control how much is injected, thus ensuring you can control the lip volume created.

2. Gradual Change. By increasing the amount of sessions, you can gradually inject lip filler to create a smoother transition for your client.

3. Increased Comfort. In fact, some dermal fillers include lidocaine for increased comfort for your client.

What can Dermal Fillers Treat

1. Smoker’s Lines. Dermal fillers can smooth and soften smoker’s lines around the mouth.

2. Marionette Lines. In addition, dermal fillers can fill marionette lines, creating a softer appearance.

3. Smile Lines. Dermal fillers can be injected into the nasolabial folds to rid your client of smile lines.

Botox Lip Flip

An injection of the botulinum toxin type A, Botox, will soften and relax the muscles around the mouth. As a result, the upper lip rolls up and outward. A lip flip is an excellent treatment to provide to clients who want more of a “pout” instead of increased volume in the lips.

Benefits of a “Lip Flip”

1. Treats “Gummy Smiles.” A Botox Lip Flip is perfect for clients who feel like they show too much of their gums when they smile.

2. Moderate Volume. In addition, a lip flip is great for clients who want a less dramatic, fuller pout.
