Dermal fillers effortlessly restore lost volume and plumpness and target age-induced blemishes such as deep wrinkles, fine lines, brow furrows, crow’s feet. Filler treatments are a safe and non-invasive alternative to incisions and longer recovery times associated with traditional cosmetic surgery operations.
Injections are most commonly performed using a dermal filler. The most commonly used product is hyaluronic acid, which is a natural sugar that already exists in your body. When it’s safely injected in synthetic form, results usually last for 4-6 months in the lips.
“Botox” is a brand name for a neuromodulator, botulinum toxin. We sometimes can inject small doses of neuromodulator in the lips to help with smokers lines, upturn the oral commissure, help with a gummy smile, and treat facial paralysis. However, by far, the most commonly injected product in the lips is hyaluronic acid.
Natural lip enhancement is a safe and effective alternative to cosmetic surgery. These injectable fillers restore lost volume in both the upper lip and lower lip. Lip augmentation treatments has a number of benefits including:
A consultation starts with a complete history and physical examination. Photos are taken to be able to compare them to your “after” photos.
Then, we talk about the injection procedure and how to keep bruising down and answer any and all questions you may have.
Lip augmentation is ideal for any age
The first consultation introduces you to our team and prepares in order of importance the elements you would like to improve in your lips.
If you have had fillers in the past, try to find out which products were injected and when. If you have already had lip surgery, try to bring with you the operative report of your prior procedures if this is possible.
Lip augmentation using fillers is practiced using either numbing cream, or local anesthesia called “lip blocks” where the doctor will numb your upper and lower lips completely using small injections of anesthetic.
The Clinique Face MD professionals will use a sterile technique and a very small needle to increase the volume of the lips in the areas that need it, according to your specific anatomy. Experience and in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy allow the professionals to administer the treatment for optimal results.
After your filler procedure, the lips will often swell significantly during the first 3-4 days, usually more than your desired result. They will settle into their desired shape within the first 2 weeks. Tricks to keep the swelling down are to sleep with at least 2 or 3 pillows and apply an ice pack that we will provide you.
A lip lift is a permanent and irreversible surgical procedure to increase the size of the upper red lip and decreases the distance between the red lip and the nose. Read more about this here.
Swelling is usually maximal at 48-72 hours after the procedure and lasts about a week. Icing the area intermittently for a few hours helps as well.
The most common risks are minimal pain at the site of injection, bruising, redness, slight headache the same or next day. Other rare risks are cosmetic dissatisfaction, asymmetries or lumpiness, infection, scar formation, nodules or granulomas at the site of injection. Very rare risks are a true allergic reaction to hyaluronic acid, loss of vision, tissue necrosis.
Sometimes multiple sessions are required for optimal results.
