Make your lips kissable and soft, voluptuous and full. With lip augmentation we strive to achieve a natural, full appearance that will restore your pucker and enhance your lovely smile. Lip augmentation is an ideal facial enhancement procedure for those who have always had thin lips, or those who wish to restore lost volume within the lips. This procedure utilizes the volumizing power of dermal fillers, and is fast, safe, and requires little to no downtime.
Lip augmentation involves the uses injectable fillers to plump and restore volume. Some of the injectable fillers available for this procedure include:
- Juvéderm®: Juvederm volumizes and shapes the lips with results lasting up to 1 year.
- Restylane®: Restylane is composed of the natural bodily substance hyaluronic acid which hydrates the skin tissues. This injectable is ideal for first-time lip augmentation patients, with results lasting up to 6 months.
Juvederm and Restylane contain lidocaine numbing agent, but a topical numbing agent or dental block may also be used to ensure comfort during the procedure. Swelling may occur immediately after lip augmentation and may take one to two days to subside, but patients may resume activities immediately after the procedure. Patients should avoid massaging the area and use cold compresses to help reduce swelling.
