Lip Enhancement | Florida

At Hellman Dermatology, the most commonly used material is Restylane, made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural sugar-like component of the skin. Restylane® & Perlane® are injected into and around the lip to enhance lips and create the desired fullness. It is a great way to jazz up your looks for that big event or blind date! This treatment can also enhance the appearance of our more mature patients who are experiencing age-related thinning of the lips.

Dermal Filler for Lip Enhancement in NYC

Dermal filler injections, such as Perlane filler and Restylane for lip enhancement is becoming a popular treatment in the modern world. It is a minimally invasive procedure involving injecting a substance made of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and other gel-like substances into the lips. It helps add volume to thin lips or enhance the shape of existing lips by smoothing out vertical lines (such as “smoker’s lines”), augmenting the cupid’s bow, and other modifications. Patients may experience temporary swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness in the area after treatment but this usually resolves within days.

Ideal Candidate

A candidate for lip enhancement is typically someone who has thinner lips and wants to plump them up with a more voluminous look. It is also popular among those who want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth or restore lost volume due to aging. You should ideally be in good health, not be on any medications that can cause adverse reactions to lip enhancement treatments, and have realistic expectations.

Risk and Side Effects

Injectable lip fillers often cause swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness at the injection site in the days following treatment. Other possible side effects include:

  • Lumpiness
  • Dryness of the lips
  • Infection
  • Allergic reaction to the filler material
  • Asymmetry

Working with an experienced and board-certified practitioner reduces these potential risks and side effects.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does Restylane last?

Generally, the lip enhancement effects of Restylane can last for six to twelve months before needing a touch-up. However, results may vary from person to person and depend on a variety of factors such as lifestyle, skin type and the area injected.

What are my lip enhancement options?

There are various options available when it comes to treatment to enhance lips. The most popular option is hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane or Perlane, which can be used to add volume and definition to lips. Other options include fat transfer injections, collagen injections and lip implants.

How does Perlane filler work?

Perlane is a hyaluronic acid filler that works by adding volume back into tissues that have become thin due to age or other factors. It works by forming a gel-like substance under the skin, providing immediate volume and definition while helping to maintain hydration through its ability to absorb moisture from surrounding tissues. Results can typically be seen right away with minimal swelling or bruising at the injection site lasting only a few days after treatment.
