Lip fillers are perhaps the most stigmatized of cosmetic procedures, with “botched” photos and scary myths showing up everywhere we turn on the internet. Since our advanced team of aesthetic injectors is ranked among the Top 1% of Injectors in the Nation, we’re here to debunk these myths once and for all and give you our no-nonsense, zero-drama guide to achieving your perfect pout.
What are lip fillers?
Lip fillers are a non-surgical, injectable filler, typically made of some form of hyaluronic acid. This water-binding substance is found in the skin naturally and is essential in creating the plump, full appearance of our skin. At Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer a wide variety of cosmetic fillers, such as Restylane, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Kysse, Juvederm, Juvederm Vollure, and more.
Who is a good candidate for lip fillers?
The hyaluronic acid in lip fillers can help to restore aging lips, plumping them up to fill out fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance, as well as keeping these signs of aging from worsening over time.
Lip fillers can also offset insecurities such as uneven lips or smile, a thin top lip, or a less-inviting smile. The truth is, that fillers are ideal for almost anyone! They can help you achieve your beauty goals with plumper lips or a more sensuously shaped Cupid’s bow, all while reducing and preventing signs of aging.
What is the injection process?
Every procedure at Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery begins with a consultation with a member of our expert team. We want to learn your aesthetic goals and examine your skin and natural features to determine the steps necessary to help you reach those goals, including the number of appointments necessary, what filler to use, and more. Our team will keep you informed about the limitations of every procedure, and help you understand and maintain realistic expectations every step of the way.
Your injector will select the best filler, or combination of fillers, for you, based on viscosity, thickness, texture, and other qualities. Then, that filler is administered into selected locations in the lip using a very fine needle.
After treatment, patients are typically able to return to their daily activities right away.
What results can I expect from my lip fillers?
Professionally injected fillers will give lips a hydrated, pouty appearance. If it’s your first time getting lip filler, we recommend building up to your desired results, and so you will see an increase in lip volume over multiple injections until you reach your ideal size and shape.
The duration of your results may vary, depending on the type and amount of filler used, but your injector will keep you aware of what to expect.
