Nothing is as attractive as a set of full, kissable lips. If your pout isn’t measuring up, don’t despair.

Our highly skilled providers are experts in the field of injectables, and they can use dermal fillers to enhance your beauty and give you plumper lips.

Why do my lips look thinner?

You may have never had the full, pouty lips you’ve always wanted. But even if your lips were plump in your younger years, as you age, your lips can lose some of their natural fullness.

Thinning lips happen to everyone, because the production of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps keep your lips full, declines as you age. What’s more? As you get older, your body also produces less collagen, which helps keep your lips firm.

How can dermal fillers plump up my lips?

In the past, women turned to fat injections, collagen, and implants to get pouty lips. But these options have risky side effects, and the results aren’t always reliable. Today, women looking to safely and effectively enhance the shape, structure, and volume of their lips are turning to dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid fillers.

Juvederm uses the same hyaluronic acid that’s found in your body to add volume and juicy plumpness to your lips. You can also combine treatments from our full line of services to soften lines, contour your cheeks or jawline, minimize wrinkles, and get smoother, softer skin.

What results can I expect with dermal fillers?

You don’t have to worry about overly plump lips with hyaluronic acid fillers. Our team controls your lip volume, and we’ll gradually increase the dose until you achieve your desired pout.

Immediately after treatment, you may notice some temporary bumps. Rest easy knowing that they will go away quickly. It’s also good to know that hyaluronic fillers leave little bruising or swelling compared to other lip-enhancing options.

Your plumper lips will last 6-9 months, depending on which filler you choose. If you want to keep your pout, you can add additional injections to keep your lips kissable all year long.

Before treatment, your provider will evaluate your overall health and discuss your lip enhancement goals. Then, your provider will create a treatment plan customized for you.

Are lip fillers safe?

In the right hands, lip fillers are safe. But promise me that you’ll only book an appointment with a medically qualified practitioner, please! And I’m not being dramatic here – there are so many people out there offering lip augmentation treatments when they have little to no experience, let alone a medical qualification. We’ve all heard horror stories of lip fillers gone wrong, and seen images of women with sore lips that have swollen to the size of sausages a butcher would be proud of. Ouch!

Noticed that your local salon has started doing lip augmentation for a bargain price? Don’t risk it. No matter how appealing that low price is, turn on those fabulous heels and run the other way! Instead, look for a practitioner’s qualifications, their lip filler before and after photos, so you can see what their work is like, and find out how many lip filler injections they have actually done.

Do lip fillers hurt?

With a medically qualified practitioner, lip fillers shouldn’t be too painful, as they will often numb the area. But they may feel slightly uncomfortable, as your lips will effectively be pumped full of a substance (like cream into an eclair). The lip is a sensitive area, so be prepared for a bit of a sting, but the vast majority of people go back for more, so it’s not as awful as you may think.

What are the main lip filler side effects?

After lip fillers, you can get on with your day as usual, so you won’t need to worry about using up all your annual leave in one go. But, as with any treatment, it’s good to be aware that there are a few potential lip filler side effects. For example, you’ll likely experience a bit of bleeding from where the needle or cannula entered the skin. You might also find that you have a bit of swelling and redness, and even a bit of bruising around the lips, but this is normal and should disappear after a couple of days.

The risk of an allergic reaction is pretty low as hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance, but it can happen from time to time. This generally results in longer-lasting (though not permanent) swelling, bumps and itching. If you’ve ever suffered with cold sores, tell your practitioner in advance. Fillers can lead to a break out, so take antiviral medicine before your appointment.

The worst thing that can happen as a result of seeing a practitioner who is not medically trained or experienced in performing lip injections is a vascular occlusion. This is where filler blocks a vein or artery, stopping blood supply. Sounds scary and it really is. If left untreated (and it MUST be treated quickly), it can lead to permanent tissue damage and even blindness. So please, PLEASE see a medically qualified practitioner who is trained in complications management and will know what signs to look out for.
