Get fuller, sexier lips with dermal fillers

How does lip enhancement with injectible dermal fillers work?

Lip Enhancement is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure which uses synthetic or biological products to safely augment the lips. At Acqua Medspa our favorite products to achieve lip enhancement are Juvéderm, Volbella, and Restylane. We prefer to use these products for lip enhancement because they last longer than other similar fillers and give natural, predictable results. Lip augmentation is widely sought out by models and actors, as well as women of all occupations and ages, who desire beautiful yet natural lip enhancement. Prior to beginning the treatment the lips are numbed with a topical cream to ensure patient comfort. The filler product is then injected into the lips in a manner designed to add fullness and improve lip contour and definition. The procedure generally takes about 20 minutes. Following treatment, the lips may appear a bit swollen for a few days, so it is best to plan ahead before a special date or event.

Who is a candidate for lip enhancement?

Men and women of all ages who desire fuller or more defined lips are all candidates for this procedure.

Is anesthesia used during lip augmentation cosmetic procedure?

Yes, your lips will be numbed so that you feel no or minimal discomfort. Usually, a topical anesthetic cream is used to numb the lips.

What are fillers used for during lip enhancement?

The most common fillers used today are composed of hyaluronic acid(HA), a substance that occurs naturally in the body. The Hyaluronic acid is processed into a gel, placed into a syringe to allow for precise and easy injection to the lips.

What does lip augmentation feel like?

With adequate topical anesthetic the procedure is well tolerated. Most patients feel the technician gently squeezing the lip, and they can feel the sense of swelling as the lip enhances. Occassionally patients will feel discomfort that requires local anesthetic.

How long does the lip augmentation procedure take?

The lip augmentation procedure usually takes twenty to thirty minutes, depending on areas being treated, volume used, and technique.

How will my lips feel after lip augmentation?

After the lip augmentation procedure, you may experience some mild pain and swelling. This usually lasts a few days and in extremely rare cases, the swelling can persist for one to two weeks.

When will I see results?

Your lips will be bigger after the procedure because of the swelling and the filler. You will see the results of the filler alone in a few days after the swelling has subsided.

How long before I can return to my normal activities?

You can return to your normal activities almost immediately after lip augmentation, but keep in mind that your lips may still be numb for a few hours and may remain swollen for a few days.

How long do the results last?

While results vary from patient to patient, the average duration for filler to the lips is 6 to 12 months. Most patients come for re-treatment on an annual basis.
