Lip fillers offer the fastest and most dramatic results, giving you instant pucker and pout with zero downtime. In fact, lip augmentation is the leading treatment at Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care, and is the number-one must-have for the summer months. Whether you want to get back the lip volume you’ve naturally lost over the years or finally treat yourself to the full pout you’ve always wanted, lip fillers can give you the look you want in minutes.
Most lip fillers are made with hyaluronic acid (HA), which is already found naturally in the body. This ensures that lip fillers won’t be “rejected” by your body. However, just like with any injectable, lip fillers can cause temporary swelling, redness, and bruising for a few days after the treatment. If you’re thinking about lip fillers for a special event, it’s a good idea to plan your appointment one week in advance. Everyone reacts a little differently to lip augmentation, and many clients are happy they can get back to their daily tasks right away after their appointment with just a little more pout than what the final results will reveal.
How Lip Fillers Work
HA lip fillers provide volume to the lips for a more sensual and youthful appearance. Full lips have been desirable for centuries because they are naturally related to beauty and youth. Everyone loses volume in their face with age, including in the lips. HA lip fillers inject hyaluronic acid (and often lidocaine or another numbing agent) into the lips for instant fullness. The actual injection time takes only a few minutes, with a full lip augmentation appointment requiring about 30 minutes on average.
It is critical that every client be matched with the right lip filler for their goals. We carry all of the best and safest dermal filler brands including Juvederm and Restylane. However, the skill of the injector is equally as important. Every injector at this medical day spa is trained by the exacting standards of Zuzana Likar. This means you can rest easy knowing that the professional taking care of your lip augmentation is incredibly skilled, experienced, and trained.
The Difference in Lip Fillers
There are many reputable lip fillers available, which makes clients wonder what makes them all unique. Most are made with HA, but there can be subtle differences in the makeup between each dermal filler. Some are designed to last longer than others, which is especially helpful for clients who know exactly what they want and are looking for results that last over a year. Some lip fillers are made to “spread” a bit more than others. There are lip fillers made to help with lines around the mouth that cause an aged look, while others are meant to strictly plump up the lips themselves.
Lip fillers can also be part of a more holistic and comprehensive facial filler plan. There are dermal fillers created for every part of the face including the cheeks, jawline, below the eyes, and temples. If rejuvenation is your goal, a combination of dermal fillers throughout the face—including the lips—might be the best approach for you. Introducing more volume to key parts of the face is often the secret to an outcome you’ll love.
