Your Guide to Safe and Successful Lip Augmentation

We get it—you’re a little nervous about getting lip fillers. You’ve always dreamed of a fuller pout, just not that over-filled, duck look. You’re probably wondering, is it even possible to achieve a natural-looking lip enhancement? We’re here to tell you that it most certainly is!

For your perfect pout, here are three tips from our expert injector Dr. Thomas E. Young, ranked in the top 3% of injectors in the country by Allergan, the makers of Botox®, Kybella®, and many dermal fillers:

Find a Pro.
Successful lip enhancement is a true art form. It takes a skilled injector with a thorough understanding of dermal fillers who can apply precise techniques and keen judgment to produce the most successful, well-proportioned results possible.

Express your goals clearly, which often entails bringing in pictures of your favorite lips to take the guess work out of the equation. Once we know the look you’re going for, we can determine the perfect dermal filler or combination of fillers to help you achieve your goals. We get beautiful results using Juvéderm® and Volbella®, hyaluronic acid-based fillers that add lasting volume to the lips and smooth out lines around the mouth area.

Be Patient.
Give your body a full week before judging your results. In the first few days after your treatment, your lips may appear bigger than you would like, which is simply natural swelling which resolves on its own. (Icing your lips will also help reduce swelling.) Keep in mind that touch-up visits may be necessary to balance out your contours. It may also take you a bit of time to adjust to your new look! Change, even when delightful, can be a bit of a shocker at first!
