Achieve Perfectly
Kissable Lips

Lip augmentation is a popular cosmetic procedure that enhances the shape and volume of the lips. This non-invasive treatment involves using dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm Volbella, Juvéderm Ultra XC, Restylane Kysse, Restylane Silk, and Revanesse Lips. During the procedure, our aesthetic provider injects these fillers into the lips, resulting in a fuller and more youthful appearance. Lip augmentation can address thin lips, asymmetry, or age-related volume loss, providing natural-looking, customizable results with minimal discomfort.

Lip Augmentation Treats:

  • Thin lips
  • Uneven lip shape or symmetry
  • Age-related volume loss in the lips
  • Fine lines and wrinkles around the lips
  • Lip imperfections or irregularities

How Lip Augmentation Works

Lip augmentation primarily relies on using dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. Hyaluronic acid can bind 1,000x its weight in water, contributing to soft, supple, voluminous skin and lips.

But as you age, your body’s ability to maintain hyaluronic acid decreases. Lip fillers are injected into the lips, where hyaluronic acid attracts and retains water molecules, resulting in increased volume and hydration. Our providers inject fillers into strategic locations to enhance the lip shape, size, and symmetry.

Benefits of Lip Augmentation:

  • Enhanced lip volume and plumpness
  • Improved lip symmetry and shape
  • Customizable results to suit individual preferences
  • Non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure
  • Quick recovery with minimal downtime
  • Temporary and reversible effects with hyaluronic acid fillers
  • Natural-looking results that enhance overall facial aesthetics
  • Long-lasting effects for several months before touch-up may be required

Lip Augmentation FAQs

What is the typical duration of lip augmentation results?

The duration of lip augmentation results can vary depending on factors such as the type of filler used and an individual’s metabolism. Generally, hyaluronic acid-based fillers, like Juvéderm and Restylane, can last 6 to 12 months. Periodic touch-up treatments are necessary to maintain the desired lip volume.

Is lip augmentation a painful procedure?

Lip augmentation is typically well-tolerated by most individuals. Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream can be applied to minimize discomfort. Furthermore, many dermal fillers contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic, which further reduces pain during the injections.

Are there any potential side effects or risks associated with lip augmentation?

Common side effects include swelling, bruising, redness, and mild discomfort at the injection site, which usually resolves within a week.

Can I choose how much volume I want to add to my lips during augmentation?

Yes, you can work closely with your practitioner to discuss your desired lip volume and shape. They will recommend the appropriate filler needed to achieve your goals while ensuring natural-looking results that complement your facial features.

How long does the lip augmentation procedure typically take?

A: The lip augmentation procedure is relatively quick, usually taking 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the complexity and the number of areas being treated.

Can I return to my normal activities immediately after lip augmentation?

Most individuals can resume daily activities shortly after lip augmentation. However, it’s advisable to avoid strenuous exercise, sun exposure, and alcohol consumption for 24 hours post-procedure to minimize the risk of swelling and bruising.
