What is lip enhancement with fillers?

Lip augmentation using lip fillers offers the patient a safe, non-invasive, and non-surgical option for rejuvenating the smile and rewinding the clock on facial aging. With injections of hyaluronic acid-based fillers, the lip contours become plump, healthy-looking, and firm. Lip lines are smoothed away, and the overall mouth shape is refined.

How do lip fillers work?

Hyaluronic acid is a compound found naturally in the human body. In youthful skin, it provides suppleness, hydration, and radiance. As we age, our natural supply of HA is depleted, leaving the lips deflated. 

HA-based lip fillers restore roundness and suppleness to the smile. In addition, they boost the production of collagen, a key protein responsible for skin resilience. Over the course of 6-18 months, the hyaluronic acid in lip fillers is gradually absorbed by the body.

What can I expect from my treatment?

Lip augmentation with lip injections takes about 30 minutes to perform. Many lip fillers contain built-in topical aesthetics. Your provider can also numb the treatment area prior to your injections to ensure your complete comfort.

In terms of our technique, we always approach lip fillers in NYC with the idea that less is more. Rather than overfilling the lips, we individualize the process, making sure that your treatment suits your unique goals, anatomy, and aesthetic preferences. The end result is improved lip definition and volume and a subtle, sexy pout.

What happens after my lip filler session?

After your lip fillers in NYC, patients are free to restart their normal activities, whether it be resuming work, going back to school, or enjoying the day shopping and sightseeing. Take care not to rub, massage, or disturb the lips for 4 hours after your session. Be gentle when cleaning your face and applying makeup. For the rest of the day, do not engage in strenuous exercise. If swelling, bruising, or tenderness occurs at the injection sites, you can use a cold compress to help assuage any discomfort. You can also take Tylenol or acetaminophen. Wait at least a month before undergoing laser therapy.
