Are your lips thinner than you’d like? Many people want fuller lips for that perfect pout or to restore volume to aging lips. Fortunately, dermal fillers are a convenient way to get soft, plump lips with a quick procedure and no downtime.
What are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are an injectable treatment used to enhance your lips’ size and shape. Dr. Schalit and his team use Juvederm® fillers, a hyaluronic acid-based brand of dermal fillers. When injected into the lips, dermal fillers can create a plumper, more youthful appearance.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Juvederm® fillers are a beneficial treatment to restore lost facial volume, augment the lips, enhance facial contours, or smooth out lines and wrinkles.
*Individual results may vary.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work for Lip Augmentation?
Dermal fillers add volume to the lips and improve water retention, leaving you with softer, plumper, more defined lips. The quick, simple injections procedure typically takes just a few minutes. One of our injection specialists will use a small needle to inject the filler into targeted areas of the lips, carefully controlling the amount of filler used to create a natural-looking result.
What to Expect After Lip Fillers
After receiving lip fillers, you may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising around the injection site. This is normal and should subside within a few days. You may also notice some tenderness or sensitivity in the lips, but this should also go away quickly. Most can return to their normal activities immediately following the procedure, but we recommend scheduling your injections at least a week before any big events in case of swelling or bruising.

Lip Filler Results
The results of lip fillers are typically visible immediately after the procedure and can last for several months, depending on the type of filler used. Juvederm® lip fillers last approximately six months, and you can preserve your results with occasional maintenance treatments. Lip augmentation with Juvederm® fillers provides natural-looking improvements when performed by an experienced provider and can be customized to suit your preferences.
Am I a Good Candidate for Lip Fillers?
If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your lips, you may be a good candidate for lip fillers. Juvederm® lip fillers may be beneficial if you have naturally thin lips or if your lips have lost volume with age.
A member of Dr. Schalit’s team will evaluate your lips and goals to help you determine if lip fillers are right for you during a detailed consultation. If you want more dramatic or long-lasting results, Dr. Schalit also performs surgical lip lifts.
