Lip Fillers - Contour, plump and correct.
Thanks to celebs like Kylie Jenner, the rise of people opting plump their pout with temporary lip fillers has skyrocketed. At Cosmetic Laser Center, our injectable lip fillers plump and smooth the lips, giving them a natural, more voluminous look. Not all injections in the lip area are meant to target the same concerns. The most common purposes for lip filler injections include:
- Plumping and adding volume to the lips
- Filling in vertical “lipstick lines” above the lips
- Helping the lips to look more symmetrical
- Smoothing the lips
How do lip fillers work?
At Cosmetic Laser Center, we use Hyaluronic Acid (HA) based fillers that work by not only plumping the lip directly but also trapping water within lips for a natural, plump pout. HA is a sugar naturally found in the human body that temporarily adds definition and volume to lips. It is able to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Once HA is injected, it slowly breaks down over a period of a few months.
What can I expect during my treatment?
- At Cosmetic Laser Center your treatment is customized to meet your specific needs. Before starting treatment, our expert injector will tailor your treatment to meet your aesthetic goals.
- Fillers are injected into the skin using a fine-gauge needle. You can either sit or recline during treatment and the aftercare is minimal.
- Treatment can only be administered by a licensed & trained specialist. There is very little to no downtime. In fact, most patients return to their normal, daily activities right after their visit. Every patient is unique, so be sure to discuss your plans during a consultation with your Cosmetic Laser Center Master Injector.
Other common questions about lip fillers:
Q. Are lip fillers safe?
Hyaluronic acid gel lip fillers are regarded widely as the best injectable lip filler option. HA fillers tend to produce consistent, satisfactory results and carry a lower risk of adverse reactions than other filler materials. Because HA is naturally made in the body, it’s less likely to cause an allergic reaction than some other types of fillers.
Q. What is the average treatment cost for lip injections?
Cost is hard to estimate until you attend your first consultation. The dosage will vary from one individual to another. Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the aesthetic professional who is administering your treatment. At Cosmetic Laser Center, our licensed and trained injectors have experience treating patients with dermal fillers producing natural looking results. It is important to find an experienced specialist who will take the time to understand your treatment goals and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
Q. Will lip fillers make my lips feel different than natural lips?
When done properly, lip fillers shouldn't feel any different from natural lips.
Q. When will I see results and how long will they last?
Immediately after your treatment you will see a boost in volume and an improvement is shape and definition, though you won’t see your final results until any swelling has gone down. Hyaluronic lip fillers can last 6 months to a year, but the rate of absorption varies, depending on your metabolism. It has been reported the new RHA Collection of Fillers last a year or longer. On average most people need touch ups every 6 - 8 months routinely to keep up the desired shape and size.
