What Are Lip Injections and Fillers?

At 8 West Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Clinic, we use only the highest-grade lip fillers. Our fillers are FDA-approved and are the gold-standard in lip augmentation. Our dermal fillers are designed specifically for the lips and are made with hyaluronic acid�a substance naturally found in the body, and they contain the local anesthetic, lidocaine, to numb the area and make the treatments more comfortable.Lip filler treatments are customizable, based on the results you want to see. Some patients want to add volume to thin lips, create shape and contour, increase the vertical height of the lip, accentuate or de-accentuate the cupid�s bow, or rejuvenate the area surrounding the lips.

Who Are Lip Injections and Fillers For?

Lip fillers are great treatment options for anyone looking to add lip volume or definition. Lip injections are best-known for plumping the lips, but there are many other ways fillers can augment the lip area. Most common treatment areas:

  • Vermillion border (edge of the lip): Patients looking to accentuate the look of the lip without adding excessive volume, while creating beautiful and natural lips.
  • Cupid�s bow: Filler can be used to accentuate the cupid bow, or soften the shape, depending on your preference to enhance the look of the upper lip.
  • Lower lip: Typically slightly thicker than the upper lip, so it's important for our aesthetic nurse injectors to inject the correct amount of filler to keep proportions natural looking. 

After a consultation, you�ll come away with a comprehensive lip augmentation treatment plan that�s right for you, designed to meet your needs and create the look that you desire.

How Are Lip Injections Performed?

Our highly experienced Aesthetic Nurse Injectors work with you to create a customized plan to treat your areas of concern. On treatment day, they inject tiny amounts of dermal fillers that are made specifically for the lips into strategically placed areas by a cannula or droplet injection to achieve your desired results.[embed]https://vimeo.com/346253091[/embed]

What Can I Expect with a Lip Injection or Filler Treatment?

Lip augmentation typically lasts for 6 to 8 months before top-up treatments are needed. You�ll notice results right away, but they temporarily will become less pronounced as the post-treatment swelling goes down. It takes about 2 to 4 weeks for the filler to settle in and fully integrate into the tissue to give you natural, plump lips.

Complementary Treatments to Enhance Your Lip Injections and Filler

Patients who want to accentuate the results of their lip filler treatments often combine their injections with our other services. Some of our most popular treatments that complement your lip augmentation include laser resurfacing&wrinkle relaxing injections which you can learn more about during your consultation with your treatment provider.
