Lip Enhancement

Dream of plump, full, pillowy soft lips? As we age, we start to lose collagen and volume in our face. One of the first areas we notice this is in our lips, and above and around our lip area. Lip augmentation is one of our most requested cosmetic procedures that can perfect and smooth the lip area and give you fuller, plumper lips. Our aesthetics specialists have performed thousands of lip enhancement procedures and are experts in creating the ideal lip look. The procedure is customized specifically for each patient, depending on the look and volume you would like to achieve. Depending on the type of lip filler used, the effects of a lip enhancement treatment can last about six months to a year.

Dermal Fillers for Lips

There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected in your lips and around your mouth. The most common lip fillers today are products that contain hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that helps increase volume in your lips and skin.

  • Restylane Silk was the first lip filler approved by the FDA. It is used for both lip augmentation and correcting lip lines.
  • Juvedérm Ultra XC plumps up the lips and was specifically designed for lip augmentation
  • Juvedérm XC is often used to smooth lines around the mouth.
  • Juvedérm Volbella XC is used for vertical lip lines above the lip as well as adding slight volume to the lips.
  • Juvedérm Vollure can be used to smooth and fill in lines around the mouth.

What to Expect in Your Lip Enhancement Procedure

Before the injections, a topical or local numbing agent will be applied to ease discomfort. After carefully marking the areas to be injected, very fine needles are used to inject the filler into your lips. Following injection, ice may be given to ease discomfort and control swelling. No firm pressure should be put on the treatment area.

You will be able to notice a difference in your lips and the lip area immediately. Bruising and swelling are common reactions to filler injections and may be apparent for two to three days. After you have healed, your lips should feel natural.
