Injectable dermal fillers are a safe and effective way to enhance your lips’ natural beauty. Patients seeking to achieve fuller, more rounded lips without the use of surgery may want to consider enlisting the help of fillers.
Injectable fillers only require a short, in-office appointment. Our resident injector will carefully mark the areas to be corrected before carefully inserting the hyaluronic acid filler with an ultra-fine needle. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body and will absorb over time. Your dermal filler will also have a lidocaine additive to minimize discomfort during the injection process.
There is no downtime associated with injectable fillers making them an ideal ‘lunchtime procedure.’ Directly after your lip treatment, you’re free to go about normal daily activities. Rubbing or massaging lips should be avoided for the first 24-hours as the filler sets.
Depending on your desired outcome, there are multiple filler options available. Volbella® may be best suited for patients who would prefer a more subtle, natural look. Those who want a more dramatic change may want to think about the more robust Juvederm® filler. For something in the middle, we often recommend Vollure®.
Whichever dermal filler you opt for, you’ll benefit from immediately plump lips. As swelling dissipates over the next several days, your new lips will become more evident. The result is a fuller lip that provides overall facial symmetry.
Injectable fillers for the lips are often very long-lasting. Results vary from case to case, however, most patients are happy with their results even after a year or more. You may wish to have a maintenance procedure done on an annual basis.
