Improving Lip Volume
# 1088

Lips have a significant role in face aesthetic perception, and lip augmentation is one of the most commonly requested aesthetic procedures. Non-permanent dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid (HA) such as Juvederm augment the lips to give you fuller, plumper lips. There are several types of HA fillers available today, a natural substance found in the body.

What is hyaluronic acid?

Injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) is a type of temporary dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally throughout the body, with the highest concentrations in the joints, eyes, and skin. In the skin, hyaluronic acid attracts water, which allows the skin to become more hydrated. As we age, the fat, muscles, bone, and skin in our faces begin to thin. This loss of volume leads to either a sunken or sagging appearance of the face, fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and thin lips. Injectable HA reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and facial folds and creates structure, framework, and volume to the face and lips. The effects of injectable hyaluronic acid are seen immediately.

Case 1088 

A female in her mid 30’s came in with concerns regarding her lips’ volume loss and shape. It was clear that she had lost volume in her lips that gave her the appearance of thin lips. After carefully reviewing her options and keeping her medical history in mind, we decided to proceed with hyaluronic acid fillers by using a blunt cannula allowing the needle to pass through, therefore only requiring one poke. This specific procedure was done in under 15 minutes, including the numbing cream application process. Click here for cases 1007

Lip fillers procedure

We used a blunt cannula to allow the needle to go through smoothly. You may feel a slight poke, almost like a pinch, during the injection of the fillers. To minimize bruising and swelling, the chiller was used after the procedure.

Cost

The cost of this procedure varies depending on how much filler is needed. One syringe of filler was used; therefore, the price was $650.00 plus tax.

Side effects

The main side effects are bruising and swelling, which lasts up to 4-5 days but varies with each person depending on their skin type.

Results

Inserted below are before and after pictures taken on the day of the treatment. You can see an immediate change right after the procedure, and they only get better over the next two weeks.
