Below are some of the most commonly asked questions on Lip Enhancement:
We use the FDA approved fillers Juvederm and Revanesse Versa+
We use a strong topical anesthetic cream to minimize pain. Using a topical cream allows you to still move your mouth naturally in order to contour your lips.
You may bruise after the procedure, which typically lasts a few days. You may also experience some swelling, redness, or tenderness that will usually alleviate itself within 24-48 hours. You will be able to return to your normal routine immediately.
24-48 hours before the procedure, you should stop any non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, aspirin, St. John’s Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E to reduce bleeding or bruising. If you have a history of cold sores, be sure to take your preventative medication as lip injections could cause a flare up.
Our goal is to make your lips look as natural as possible and properly align them with the size and shape of your face. We utilize techniques to create a natural look but sometimes a person desires further augmentation.
Yes, sometimes working with just one lip is desirable. During your free consultation, we will discuss your goals and review exactly what we will do to achieve your ideal look.
You will see results immediately, however, you will most likely be swollen so it may take up to two weeks for your new lips to settle and to see the full effects of the filler.
Lip Fillers usually last about six months to a year. The length of time can vary based on how fast your body dissolves the filler. If you do not get additional treatments, your lips will eventually go back to their original state.
Hyaluronic acid lip fillers can be removed through an antidote called Hyaluronidase. This is a natural enzyme that helps to dissolve the hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronidase injection can take up to 24 hours to fully take effect. This injection may cause some bruising and swelling.

Many of us find that our genetics have given us thin lips. This can include a thin upper or lower lip, or even both! With lip enhancements and fillers, you can even out those lips and give them that full, lush, pouty look you desire.
Often, as we age, our lips lose volume. Additionally, we may experience fine lines and wrinkles around our mouth and nose, causing us to look less than youthful. Dermal fillers used for lip enhancement will add volume to the lips, along with smoothing out those lines and wrinkles.
In many cases, your lips are the first thing people notice. If your lips are thin or nearly non-existent, this can lead to feelings of self-consciousness. Many try to enhance the lips through the use of lipstick; however, this can often just draw more attention to the thinness. With lip enhancement, you will get those full lips that will give you a high sense of confidence, and now when you apply that lipstick, it will draw attention to those full, plump lips.
Often, those with thin lips may experience the look of an unbalanced face. We all want to have a balanced look to our face, and having thin lips can throw off that overall balanced look. When you undergo lip enhancement to give you full lips, your overall face can look more balanced, as your lips now match your other facial features, such as your cheeks and brows.
Because our lips are so central to our facial features, when you have full lips, you will exude a look of youth and good health. At Skin and Vein Center, we understand that there are many different reasons you may be seeking this procedure. We invite you to schedule a consultation where we will sit down and discuss your desired results and options.
