Supple, full lips have become among the most coveted attributes made famous by celebrities and other public personalities. Lips that are luscious and hydrated convey a sense of youthfulness and vitality that is alluring to many female clients. While there is much coverage in the media about lip filler procedures gone wrong, the reality is that in the right hands, lip injections can create subtle and natural-looking beauty that will accentuate your smile and jumpstart your self-confidence.
Our team performs strategic lip injections to reverse age-related volume loss and minimize vertical lip lines. When the lip contours are made plump and smooth, the overall aesthetic appeal of the smile is greatly enhanced.
What are lip fillers?
Lip fillers are typically made with hyaluronic acid, a biocompatible compound found naturally in the human body. HA is responsible for the resilient, moisturized glow so familiar in youthful complexions. As we age, our supply of hyaluronic acid begins to dwindle, rendering the skin dull and depleted. While lip fillers are a temporary solution to volume loss in the smile, they tend to last anywhere from 6 to 12 months. The procedure is non-invasive and quick so that you can return to your regular schedule immediately.
What are the most popular lip fillers on the market?
Juvederm’s Volbella is FDA-approved to help reduce the appearance of smoker's lines and laugh lines, but it is also an excellent solution for maximizing lip volume and suppleness. Thanks to its proprietary technology, Volbella ensures discreet and nuanced results by blending different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid. With Volbella, the lips will never look overfilled or unnatural. The entire procedure takes less than 30 minutes so that clients can return to work or school immediately after their session. Results with Juvederm Volbella can last up to one year.
Restylane Silk works to seamlessly augment the lips and effectively reduce the vertical lines that form around the mouth. Thinning lips and compromised lip contours are typical signs of the aging process, but with Restylane Silk, your smile will appear revitalized and refreshed. Restylane Silk is formulated with tiny particles of hyaluronic acid that are perfect for creating subtle changes.
Restylane Kysse is a new FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based lip filler that can help fill in depleted lip contours and correct fine lines around the mouth. What's more, Restylane Kysse can help improve your lip’s natural shade of red and soften the lip texture. Restylane Kysse is formulated with a proprietary technology known as “XpresHAn.” This technology is a smooth gel that integrates easily into the lip tissue for a more natural appearance when the lips are in motion. With Restylane Kysse, you don’t have to sacrifice spontaneity and individuality to have full, luscious lips. Results typically last up to 11 months.

Who is a good candidate for lip fillers?
Suppose you are interested in augmenting the lips and combating age-related concerns such as volume loss and vertical lip lines. Still, you are not ready for more permanent solutions such as lip implants or fat transfer. In that case, lip fillers may be an ideal treatment for your aesthetic goals. In the hands of our highly trained and credentialed lip injectors, your smile will appear naturally plump and full without the telltale signs of a cosmetic procedure. Friends and family may notice that you look more youthful and refreshed, but they will not be able to pinpoint precisely where the change is coming from.
Candidates for any cosmetic procedure should be healthy, both mentally and physically, and they should have realistic expectations for what lip fillers can accomplish. While lip fillers can help to enhance your smile, they cannot make you look like a celebrity or a completely different person.
What happens after lip fillers?
Because lip injections are non-surgical and non-invasive, one of the significant benefits is that there is no downtime after the procedure. Your entire session will take around 30 minutes, and then you will be able to return immediately to your normal activities. You may experience some minor swelling or tenderness at the injection sites, but these side effects typically fade within a matter of hours or by the next day. We will follow up with you to ensure that you are happy with your outcome.
