A lip enhancement is a minimally invasive treatment that gives fuller, plumper lips. The results will improve the appearance of your lips by adding shape, structure and volume.
How does it work?
Lip filler treatment involves natural gel-like Hyaluronic acid being injected into target areas of the lips with a needle.
What can you expect?
You will be required to come in at least 30 minutes before your scheduled treatment time for local anesthesia ointment to be applied to the lip area. Your medical professional may capture photographs of the soon-to-be treated area(s).
Once the treatment has started, your Registered Nurse will inject, massage, and evaluate the area being treated. If needed, an additional filler may be used to make sure you are happy with the results and that it meets your aspirations.
After the treatment, your Registered Nurse will show you the results and will ask if you are satisfied. If you are satisfied with the results, we will give you an ice pack to reduce the swelling and relieve any discomfort.
What are the pre-care instructions?
- Avoid blood-thinner medications like aspirin, ibuprofen, Advil and Aleve for one week before treatment
- Avoid supplements like garlic, ginseng, and Vitamin E for one week before treatment
- Avoid topical retinol products and glycolic acid products for two days prior

How many syringes will I need?
Lip filler would require one to two syringes depending on the desired effect.
How long will the filler last?
Results of Hyaluronic lip filler are temporary and can last from 6 to 12 months before the body absorbs them. Keep in mind that it may not be possible to receive optimal results with one treatment. Discuss how many treatments will be needed to meet your goals with your Registered Nurse.
How long do treatments take?
The lip flip treatment will take about 15 minutes while the lip filler treatment will depend on how many syringes are being used. We require 30 minutes of numbing prior to the treatments and it can take up to 90 minutes to complete a lip filler treatment.
Is this treatment safe?
This treatment is completely safe and FDA approved.
Is this treatment painful?

What are the side effects of this treatment?
Being injected with lip filler can cause bruising, swelling, itchiness and redness within the first 48 hours.
Are there any aftercare instructions?
After your treatment, you may experience swelling and bruising within the first 48hr hours. Therefore, we require you to avoid intense physical activity for the first 24 to 48 hours to help reduce swelling and bruising.
