What are lip fillers or lip injections?

Lip fillers, also known as lip injections, are cosmetic treatments that injects hyaluronic acid fillers into the lips to increase their size, enhance their shape, improve their structure, or add volume. Commonly used fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are injected into specific sites to enhance the shape, structure, and fullness of your lips.

It’s worth noting that while lip fillers can greatly enhance the appearance of the lips, the results are not permanent. The body gradually breaks down the filler over time, so regular touch-up cosmetic treatments are needed to maintain yuour aesthetic goals.

What are the benefits of lip fillers?

Lip fillers can offer a multitude of benefits for those looking to enhance their facial features, particularly focusing on the aesthetic improvement of the lips. Some of the key benefits include:

Shape, structure and volume enhancement

Lip fillers provide extra volume to enhance the shape and structure of your lips. This treatment can correct asymmetry and improve the overall balance of your facial features.

Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Hyaluronic acid lip fillers not only add volume but also reduce the appearance of vertical lip lines and perioral lines, giving you a more youthful appearance.

Reversible, Non-surgical treatment

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers offer a non-surgical lip augmentation option that is reversible. If needed, the filler can be dissolved using hyaluronidase.

Immediate, long-lasting effects

Lip filler injections provide immediate results, with effects that can last from 6 to 12 months. Reach your aesthetic goals with minimal need for maintenance treatments.

Am I a good candidate for lip augmentation?

A good candidate for lip augmentation is typically someone who is in good general health and has realistic expectations about what the procedure can achieve. Specifically, candidates may include those who:

  1. Have Thin Lips: If you naturally have thin lips and desire a fuller appearance, lip augmentation can increase volume, giving you the plump lips you’ve always wanted.
  2. Experience Volume Loss with Age: As we age, our lips naturally lose volume and definition. Lip fillers can restore this lost volume, rejuvenating your lips and contributing to a more youthful appearance.
  3. Desire a More Defined Shape: If you’re unhappy with the symmetry or outline of your lips, lip fillers can enhance their shape, providing a more defined and contoured look.
  4. Have Perioral Lines: Often referred to as “lipstick lines,” these are the fine wrinkles that appear around the mouth due to age, smoking, or repetitive facial expressions. Lip augmentation can help smooth out these lines, improving the skin texture around your lips.
  5. Want to Improve Their Overall Facial Balance: Lips play a crucial role in facial symmetry. Enhancing the lips can help balance your facial features, making your face appear more proportionate and harmonious.
  6. Has Realistic Expectations: It’s essential to approach lip augmentation with realistic expectations. A professional consultation can help you understand what can and cannot be achieved with fillers. The best patients are those who aim for a subtle lip augmentation, not perfection.

What are the active ingredients of lip injections?

The primary active ingredients in our lip injections are hyaluronic acid-based fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane. These acid fillers are favored for their ability to integrate smoothly into the body, providing reliable extra volume while maintaining a natural appearance. Their formulation includes a numbing agent to minimize any discomfort during the injection process.

What is the standard lip enhancement procedure?

The lip enhancement procedure at Mourad MD is meticulously designed to ensure safety, comfort, and effectiveness:

  1. Initial Consultation: Meet with one of our expert injectors to discuss your lip augmentation goals and to plan the treatment, including the type of filler used, that best suits your needs.
  2. Preparation: A topical anesthetic is applied to the lips to minimize discomfort and prepare the injection sites.
  3. Lip Filler Injection: Using a fine needle, the hyaluronic acid filler is strategically injected into targeted areas of the lips to add volume and address any vertical lines or perioral lines.
  4. Post-Procedure Assessment: We evaluate the immediate effects of the filler injections, ensuring symmetry and the desired volume enhancement.
  5. Post-Procedure Care: Patients receive detailed instructions to help manage common side effects such as minor bruising or swelling and to ensure a smooth recovery.
  6. Follow-Up Appointment: This appointment is critical to assess the long-term results and plan any necessary maintenance treatments.

 

What type of filler is used in the lip filler procedure?

At Mourad MD, we use hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm and Restylane for lip augmentation treatments. These fillers are renowned for their safety and effectiveness in providing a natural, fuller appearance while also being reversible with hyaluronidase if necessary. Common hyaluronic acid-based fillers include Juvederm (Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, Juvederm Volbella), and Restylane (Restylane Silk, Restylane Kysse).

Are lip fillers safe for patients?

Lip fillers are considered a safe non-surgical option for lip augmentation when administered by skilled injectors like those at Mourad MD. The hyaluronic acid-based fillers we use have a proven safety record and are FDA approved.

Risks of hyaluronic acid lip fillers

Despite their high safety profile, there are potential risks associated with hyaluronic acid lip fillers, such as filler migration, allergic reactions, bruising, and less commonly, injection-related infections. We mitigate these risks by following strict procedural guidelines and using only the highest quality products.

How many months does lip augmentation last?

Typically, the effects of lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid fillers last between 6-12 months. Factors like the patient’s metabolism, the type of filler used, and lifestyle choices can affect the time before you need a new session.

What is the recovery time after getting lip enhancement in New York?

Most patients experience initial swelling and bruising following an augmentation with lip filler, but these subside within a couple of days, allowing a return to normal activities quickly. Full recovery and the final results of the lip filler treatment are usually visible within one to two weeks.

What is the difference between lip fillers and dermal fillers?

While lip fillers are specifically designed for enhancement of the lips, providing volume and contouring, dermal fillers are used more broadly across various facial areas to address wrinkles, loss of volume, and other signs of aging. Both types of treatments aim to restore a youthful appearance but target different aspects of facial aesthetics.

Does Mourad MD offer alternatives to lip fillers?

Yes, Mourad MD provides a variety of non-surgical and surgical interventions to meet diverse cosmetic needs. Alternatives to lip fillers include botox for addressing Gummy smiles and collagen treatments for skin rejuvenation. During your consultation, we can discuss all available treatments and help you choose the best option to achieve your desired results.
