About Lip Filler

Enhancing the lips (lip augmentation) is a procedure that can have a massive impact on the overall youthful rejuvenation of the entire face. A refreshed and youthful appearance can be achieved by restoring the volume that has naturally been lost over time.

For many who undergo lip augmentation, atrophy or loss of hyaluronic acid in the lip is the primary reason for treatment. Dr. Schalit often uses Juvederm®, a pure form of hyaluronic acid. Anytime one performs injections, there can be a small amount of discomfort. Dr. Schalit almost always applies topical anesthesia. This takes only a few seconds and makes the procedure practically painless.

Lip Filler Treatment Duration And Downtime

Administering the injection itself takes a few minutes, and appointments are often scheduled as a lunchtime procedure. You will be provided with ice to help any swelling go down; however, most patients are generally able to return to their normal routines after a lip augmentation treatment.

Patients may experience bruising, swelling, and/or discomfort at the injection sites. Although compared to other lip fillers, Juvederm causes less immediate puffiness at the injection sites. It is recommended that you schedule the injections one week ahead of an important meeting or event to avoid this issue.

Typical Results After Lip Filler

You will see an immediate gain in volume with lip fillers. As the swelling subsides and the skin absorbs the hyaluronic acid, you may notice that the pronounced results are settling in.

It takes 6-12 months for the filler to be absorbed fully and lips to soften again, at which point you will need to come in for another session. Results vary depending on the lip augmentation procedure that is selected.
