Lip fillers are injections made of hyaluronic acid that are injected into your lips to add volume.
There are different brands of hyaluronic acids available. The fillers we recommend most for lip enhancement are: Volbella, Juvederm, Restylane and Belotero.
How Do Fillers Work For Lip Enhancement?
Lip fillers are used not only to increase the size of your lips, but also to correct the shape.
As we age lips become thinner and smaller. The distance between the nose and lips increases because the furrow, (Phyltrum) between the upper lip and the nose may get flatter.
Hyaluronic acid can be injected into the phyltrum and a well-trained and experienced physician can recreate the lost volume in the phyltrum. Lip fillers can be used to smooth lines and wrinkles around the lips and correct the so-called commissure lines that develop at the corners of your lips.

How Soon Will I See Results After Lip Injections?

Possible side effects can include: bruising, mild discomfort and swelling.
Who is not a candidate for lip fillers?
If you are pregnant, have history of diabetes, have tendency to have blood clots. If you have active cold sores (Herpes) around your lips, if you are taking medications that suppress your immune system.
Dr. De Juliis recommends avoiding intense physical activity for 48 hours after the injections. Regular activity can be resumed immediately after the procedure. Cold compresses can be used to decrease the swelling.
