Achieve Your Aesthetic Goals
Lip fillers are injections that give your lips a fuller, plumper look. There are many different types of lip fillers, but the most common ones are composed of synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance found in your body that builds up the tissue in your lips and allows for reshaping. Over time, you may lose the volume of your lips due to sun damage, smoking, or genetic factors. Lip fillers can restore lost volume or add fullness to naturally thin lips. They don't stop the aging process, but they may help slow the formation of new wrinkles around the lips.
Natural and Elegant Lips
Lip fillers increase the size of your lips, giving you a better body image and attractive, natural-looking lips. This simple, popular treatment enables you to achieve beautiful results with a relatively small investment of time and money. Lip filler treatment can be performed gradually, so you can undergo many sessions until you reach your goal without injecting too many filler substances. Lip fillers are also reversible; if you are not happy with the results, a provider can inject your lips with an enzyme that dissolves your filler. Lip filler injections cause minimal swelling so that you can get back to your everyday routine faster. And because hyaluronic acid is a natural substance, allergic reactions are unlikely.
Enhance Your Natural Beauty
If you want to get lip fillers, you should be in good overall health and not have any active oral infections like cold sores. The FDA hasn't approved lips fillers for individuals who are under 21 or pregnant.
Before the procedure, you will have a full medical consultation, during which we will review any medication you take as well as any known allergies. You will also discuss your goals for the procedure. It's essential to have realistic expectations and discuss them with your provider. During the treatment, a topical anesthetic will be applied to your lips, numbing your lips and making the process as comfortable as possible. Then your aesthetic specialist will use a thin needle to inject the lip fillers into the areas to be contoured. These areas may include the edges of your lips, the curve in the center of your lips, and the corners of your mouth. After the injection, an ice pack will be applied to your lips to minimize swelling and bruising. The whole treatment normally takes about 30 minutes to two hours. The injector may gently massage your lips so that the filler gets absorbed. Normally, a follow-up session is scheduled after two weeks to monitor your results.
After the treatment, you should apply an ice pack to reduce swelling, bruising, and discomfort. You should also avoid wearing lipstick, lip balm, or any other product for at least 24 hours. You should refrain from touching or puckering your lips, including drinking from a straw. Drink a lot of water and be careful while brushing your teeth. Drinking alcohol after the injection may cause blood thinning, which can worsen your bruises, so you should avoid it too. Depending on your age and metabolism, your lip fillers will last about 12 to 18 months. Younger people tend to metabolize the product faster, so their lip fillers don't last as long.
Mild Side Effects
Side effects are generally mild and may include dizziness, nausea, swelling, or bruising. During the injection, you may feel a pinching sensation, and your eyes may water.

Bruises and swelling may continue for a week or ten days after the treatment. Fewer people suffer from lip asymmetry, meaning parts of the lips are different in size. Although it is rare, some people develop an allergic reaction that causes redness and itching around the lips
You will not be put under general anesthesia, so you may drive yourself home after your treatment.
