Lip Filler

Whether your lips have thinned over time or you simply want fuller lips, dermal fillers are a great option. These dermal fillers are injected at varying depths to eliminate lip lines, define the upper lip and add volume or fullness to both the upper and lower lip.

Lip filler treatment takes about 30 minutes with instant results lasting anywhere between six months to several years (depending on which filler is used). The amount of discomfort depends on the sensitivity of the patient's skin. Sometimes a topical anesthetic is used to dull the pain. The product is injected using a very fine needle.

One week prior to your lip filler treatment, avoid taking St. John's Wort, aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, e.g. Advil, and high doses of Vitamin E supplements. These agents may increase bleeding and bruising at the injection site.

Lip fillers can improve:

  • Deflated Upper Lip

  • Thin or Aging Lips

  • Uneven Lips

  • Lip Lines

The JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers is made from a modified form of HA.

What is the treatment experience like? 

Your provider will take your medical history and provide a facial analysis. Be prepared to discuss your areas of concern. This is not a surgical treatment. Actual treatment can take 15 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on which area of your face is being treated.

Does it hurt? 

The amount of discomfort depends on the sensitivity of the patient's skin.
