What is lip filler?
Lip fillers are a type of treatment that involves the injection of a filler substance into the lips. This filler typically consists of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body. It is injected directly into the lips in order to add volume, shape, and definition to the lips.
The effects of lip fillers are usually seen immediately after treatment. Depending on the type of filler used, the results of lip fillers can last anywhere from months. The effects of lip fillers can also be long-lasting if touch-up treatments are done regularly.
Lip fillers are suitable for anyone looking to add volume and definition to their lips or achieve a more defined lip shape. It is important to speak with one of our qualified and experienced experts before undergoing lip filler treatment.

frequently asked questions
How do lip fillers work?
Aging causes the skin around your lips to lose elasticity and begin to stretch. A variety of factors, such as sun exposure, lifestyle, and genetics, can affect the quality of the lines and wrinkles around the lips. Lip fillers provide minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment to minimize the signs of aging and enhance your appearance.
What can I expect during my lip filler treatment?
Injections of lip fillers are non-surgical and are usually completed in our office, and is a quick procedure.
Pre-treatment consultation: We will evaluate your concern(s), review your medical history, and discuss your goals and concerns.
Your lip filler treatment: The area around the lips will be cleaned and cooled with an ice pack before the actual treatment. If needed, a topical anesthetic may be applied to numb the lip area. The filler will then be strategically injected beneath the skin by your injector. You may notice results immediately after receiving lip filler injections, depending on the product and the areas treated!
How many treatment sessions will I need, and how long will the results last?
How long the effects of lip fillers will last and how many treatment sessions you will need will depend on the product, the goal of treatment, and the patient. Our cosmetic surgeon will discuss all of these details with you during your initial consultation.
How are lip fillers different from neuromodulator injections (such as Botox®)?
While neuromodulator injections (such as Botox®) relax the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles, lip fillers add volume by injecting collagen into the treatment area to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and creases around the mouth. Our professional injectors will help you choose the right option for you during your initial consultation.
