The lips should be a focal point for a healthy, beautiful smile, yet as they age, they begin to distract the eye from the rest of the features. Thinning, depleted lips that have lost their fat volume can be a source of dissatisfaction for many patients, but there is an easy, non-invasive path towards improving your skin. We can create a customized treatment using injectables and dermal fillers that combats lip lines and plumps and revitalizes lip volume, resulting in a more youthful, attractive smile.
What is non-invasive lip augmentation?
There are two types of injections used to augment the lips. The first is a structural injection, which refines lip shape and adds definition to the lips’ edges. The second type of injection is a volume injection, which increases the lip size, adding fullness and firmness to the meat of the lips. The combination of these two approaches will lead to a lip appearance that is youthful, robust and refreshed.
One of the major ingredients in lip fillers is hyaluronic acid, a natural protein that allows the skin to retain moisture and is responsible for the skin’s suppleness, resilience, and youthful glow. With continuing advancements in cosmetic technology, we now offer a variety of fillers and injectables that can achieve personalized, elegant and organic looking results.

How long does lip augmentation last?
Depending on the type of dermal filler used and how fast your body metabolizes it, your lip augmentation can last for 6 to 9 months, at which point a maintenance treatment can be done. A good skincare routine, sunscreen, and not smoking can help your results last longer.
Risks & Recovery
Lip augmentation with fillers is a simple, very commonly performed procedure that is very safe. The dermal fillers used in lip augmentation can be reversed easily, should you later decide you aren’t pleased with your new look. Most patients will experience only very mild symptoms after lip augmentation, such as mild bruising and redness at injection sites. These tend to go away on their own within 24 to 48 hours.
