Lack of lip volume is corrected using only the safest and longest-lasting hyaluronic acid lip fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvéderm or Sculptra.
Lip Injection Procedure Details
Soft tissue fillers consisting of hyaluronic acid gel such as Restylane, Perlane, or Juvederm are injected under the skin to increase the volume and shape facial contours.
After Care Instructions
There may be some swelling and redness associated with dermal fillers, and it’s recommended to ice the treatment area for at least an hour following the procedure.
Are Lip Fillers Temporary?
Since the results of lip injections are never permanent, many choose to return for supplemental lip filler injections a year after treatment to sustain the volumization effects achieved through the initial lip augmentation.
Lip Filler Side Effects
Side effects for nonsurgical lip augmentation are similar to those associated with dermal fillers, including nausea, headaches, flu-like symptoms, swelling, and redness. Your side effects should not persist for more than 48 hours, and make sure to let your specialist know if it does.
Lip Injection Results
The lip augmentation process involves a consultation discussing the optimal and idealized lip shape and contour that the patient desires. It is important that the lip look natural after the injection and not “ducky” or protrusive. Dr. Mulholland and those professionals that he has trained at SpaMedica are experts in achieving natural, attractive lip enhancement volumes that are perfect to the age and aesthetic outcome desires of the patient. Dr. Mulholland’s specialized technique of using a non-sharp, blunt microcannula to inject the sugar gel has greatly minimized, reduced or even eliminated the risk of bruising.
New products such as Juvéderm® Volbella™ can be injected into the upper and/or lower lip – usually both – to achieve a very natural and beautiful increase in the vertical height of the red lip from the center of the upper and lower lip right to the corner of the mouth. This increase in vertical height creates the natural and youthful proportion most patients are looking for, but does not increase projection or protrusion of the lip, avoiding the “ducky” appearance
Dr. Mulholland and his team of trained SpaMedica professionals use a combination of low-volume dilute BOTOX Injectable, lip injection and augmentation and specialized fractional radiofrequency devices and lasers to minimize and nearly eliminate the appearance of upper lip lines, together with appropriate volumization of deflated or congenitally small lips.
