LIP AUGMENTATIONespanol

Lip augmentation is a popular procedure that creates fuller, plumper lips. It is used to enhance the appearance and reduce wrinkles around the mouth, sometimes referred to as “smoker lines”. It is equally popular among younger women wanting to have larger upper and lower lip and older women and men fighting the signs of aging.

Hyaluronic acid (example: Restylane, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Silk, Juvederm Ultra or Juvederm Ultra Plus) is by far the most common product used for lip augmentation. It is a substance naturally found in human body. It is responsible for holding water and giving volume to the skin. As part of aging, body’s natural hyaluronic acid production slows, which in turn result in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A simple, in-office procedure of lip augmentation with Restylane or Juvederm can replenish the lost volume, smooth out the wrinkles around the mouth or create the lips you have always wanted.

What Is The Procedure?

After the initial lip augmentation (enhancement) consultation the lips are numbed with topical anesthetic cream. After the lips are numbed and cleaned, it takes 10 to 15 minutes for your medical provider to inject your lips. The procedure involves a series of painless injections with a very small needle. The result are seen right away.

Is Lip Augmentation (Lip Enhancement) Painful?

Most clients describe the procedure as a comfortable treatment. Topical anesthetic creams, ice and sometimes local anesthesia are used to minimize the discomfort and make the procedure painless.

Is There A Recovery Time After Lip Augmentation (Lip Enhancement)?

Your lips may feel sore and mildly swollen for a few days after the treatment. Some areas may also feel tender and sensitive. To reduce the risk of complications, it is important to follow all the instructions you receive during the consultation. To reduce the recovery time to a minimum we recommend using cold compresses immediately after the treatment. Using ice packs also reduces your chances of bruising and extends numbing effects of the anesthesia. You are also advised to keep the areas clean, avoid massaging the lips and smoking for 48 hours.

How Long Do Lip Augmentation Results Last?

Most of the hyaluronic acid based products last between six months to a year1 . Regular lip augmentation patients usually come back once or twice per year to maintain their results.

Can Lip Augmentation Be Combined With Other Treatments?

Absolutely. To better improve age-related lines and wrinkles around the lips, lip injection treatments are effectively combined with Botox injections as well as Fractional Laser Resurfacing and Microneedling Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Treatments.
