Lip Filler

Lip filler is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the Unites States! Lip filler can be used to replace volume lost in the lips with aging, or can be used to add fullness to youthful lips.  Fuller lips can help balance your facial appearance and profile. 

What is Lip Filler?

Lips are made fuller by injecting hyaluronic acid gel into the lips.  There are wide variety of filler products that can be used to achieve optimal results.  After a thorough assessment and discussion of your goals, your provider will decide what the best product is for you.  One session of lip filler can generally provide the results you are looking for.  If you are looking for much fuller lips than you may need more than one treatment session to achieve your goals.

Lip filler helps more than just your lips!

Lip fillers aren’t just about front-facing beauty. They can also enhance your side profile by adding volume to the lips. For optimal balance and profile projection, we may recommend dermal filler in other parts of the face, such as the chin or cheeks, resulting in a harmonious, beautiful look.

Facial asymmetry can occur due to several factors, including genetics, aging, or muscle weakness. Our lip filler service is an excellent option for restoring symmetry to asymmetrical lips. We make minor adjustments to the shape of the lips by strategically injecting the right amount of filler where needed.

Safe and Effective Lip Filler Treatments

The majority of our lip fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance naturally found in the skin. Injecting HA fillers into the lips is considered minimally invasive, reducing the risk of side effects or complications even further.
