Lip Augmentation with Restylane & Juvederm
Almost every woman wants a touch more fullness to their lips. Sometimes even more than a touch. One thing is certain: NO one wants a duck lip or fish lip appearance after fillers. Whether you're looking for Kylie lips or a subtle pout my focus is on a natural look to the lips after lip augmentation.

Augmented or Natural Looking Lips: You Choose
One vial for natural, Two vials for augmented. It's completely your call. In general, we start with one vial of lip filler and revisit the results in two weeks. If you want more voluptuous lips at that point, then we can add more!
Do lip injections hurt?
I am a very gently doctor and I really hate hurting people! We start with topical numbing cream that stays on for about 20 minutes. After cleaning (and re-cleaning the lips) I make very small injections with a very tiny needle to shape and contour the lips. The procedure takes about 5 minutes and patients rate the pain score at about a 3. The fillers also have lidocaine in them, so the lips get more numb as we go.
Lip fillers last about 1 year.
Restylane and Juvederm are made of naturally occurring hyaluronan, which is a soft and spongy substance that's found throughout your body. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring already in your lips. Depending on your metabolism, lip fillers can last around 1 year. Sometimes 9 months, sometime 15 depending on the product.
Just like breast augmentation, lip fillers can be anything YOU want them to be.
A vial of restylane can give a nice full pout.
Most of the filler is "supposed" to go in the lower lip to create a natural shape...
...but those rules can be broken by adding more to the upper lip, giving a more sultry look.
Lip fillers improve on your natural shape.
Lip injections last about a year and are a known source of confidence (our motto; see images below).
