When you Need the Best, Call The Skin Elite

Lip augmentation can be performed surgically, but at our practice, it involves biocompatible dermal fillers to enhance the shape and volume in the upper or lower lip. Nothing is more appealing than plump, soft, lovely lips – and we’ll help you enjoy the perfect look thanks to our experienced team of certified expert injectors.

Are you Ready for Plumper Lips?

If you dream of having plumper, fuller lips, you are likely an ideal candidate for lip augmentation with dermal fillers. Over time, a decrease in collagen production can lead to lip thinning, with tiny vertical lines developing around the mouth. The curve of the upper lip (Cupid’s bow) may lose its youthful definition, looking flatter and less striking.

Custom injections of dermal fillers can resolve these issues in the most beautiful way, especially when performed by an expert injector here at The Skin Elite. You may be interested in creating fuller lips, whether upper, lower, or both. Our customized lip augmentation treatments can beautifully enhance the shape and definition of the upper lip or lower lip.

Whether you envision a more appealing pout, want to enhance your sense of definition, or are looking for a way to plump up thinner lips, our team of expert injectors is ready to go above and beyond to ensure your results are stunningly attractive.

Your experience at The Skin Elite: Lip Augmentation at its best

The non-surgical lip augmentation procedure takes only a few minutes to perform. Before administering the dermal fillers, we may apply a topical anesthetic – your comfort matters to us! The numbing requires a few minutes to work, though some of our clients do not bother with the numbing, as the dermal fillers also have a numbing agent.

Our expert injector uses a very fine needle to inject your dermal fillers to enhance the shape, volume, and definition of your lips. As they begin work immediately, you’ll be able to see the changes as they occur, and we’ll focus on ensuring a beautifully balanced, natural-looking appearance.

Will I be Camera-Ready Right Away?

There is no real recovery time associated with lip augmentation, but you can expect some degree of swelling or minor bruising. However, these side effects are mild enough that most people go right back to their routine. If you plan to go to a special event, plan your appointment about one week in advance, so you look your best.

After your Lip Augmentation

You do not have many rules after a lip augmentation, but take these precautions:

  • Avoid strenuous exercise for about 48 hours.
  • Avoid excessive heat like saunas and hot tubs for about 48 hours.
  • Do not massage your lips.
  • If swelling or bruising occurs, apply an ice pack for a few minutes at a time (do not apply ice directly to the lips, place a cloth in between).
  • Sleep with your head slightly elevated for a night or two.

Are there any risks?

In most cases, there are no adverse side effects to lip augmentation with dermal fillers. The vast majority of lip enhancements are performed with a hyaluronic acid filler formulated specifically for the lips. While very rare, a minor chance of exaggerated swelling is possible. Lip injections should only be performed by a trained, board-certified provider to decrease the risk of vascular occlusion, in which dermal filler is injected into or near an artery. We sincerely believe that any filler treatment, whether injected into the lips or the face, should be performed by a certified, expert injector.

How soon after my lip augmentation will I see results?

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers work by binding to water molecules immediately upon settling in the skin. Our patients see their beautiful results immediately after their injections. Keep in mind that minor swelling may make the initial results look slightly exaggerated, but not unnatural.

How long will my lip augmentation last?

Lip injections using hyaluronic acid dermal fillers last for many months. Unlike silicone lip implants or other surgical procedures, dermal filler lip augmentation works quickly and is long-lasting. In the rare case that you do not like the look, lip augmentation with a hyaluronic acid filler is entirely reversible.
