Achieve Fuller and More Defined Lips with Lip Fillers

Featured Image

Almost everyone wants to have fuller and more defined lips, but not everyone has them naturally. Now, dermal fillers have made it possible for individuals to achieve their desired look. So, what are lip fillers, and how do they work? These injectable treatments plump up the skin through natural substances like hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, and poly-L-lactic acid.

If you're considering a popular cosmetic treatment like dermal fillers, call our experienced team at Spyglass Dermatology in Stuart or Tequesta, FL. Dr. Ryan Schuering and his staff of trained providers can review the details of this procedure and what to expect in terms of results.

Do you have less-than-perfect lips?

A few factors can contribute to less-than-perfect-looking lips. Some people have naturally thin or asymmetrical lips due to genetics, while others notice changes in their lips as they age. Additionally, poor lifestyle habits like smoking and excessive sun exposure can impact the skin around our lips — causing fine lines, wrinkles, and an overall loss of volume.

What are lip fillers?

Lip fillers, called dermal fillers or lip injections, involve injecting a substance just beneath the skin to increase fullness and create defined lips. Many common fillers used for lip augmentation are based in hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that keeps our skin plump and hydrated.

How do lip fillers work?

The process of getting lip fillers is relatively quick and straightforward. First, Dr. Ryan Schuering or one of our experienced providers will clean and mark the treatment area. Once you are comfortable, the filler is injected into specific areas in your lips or around your mouth. The number of injections and amount of filler used varies for each person, depending on their unique lip shape.

How long do lip fillers last?

Dermal fillers get absorbed over time, so results generally depend on your metabolism and the type of filler used. However, most hyaluronic acid fillers typically last 6 – 12 months before needing a touch-up treatment at Spyglass Dermatology in Stuart or Tequesta, FL. Calcium hydroxylapatite-based fillers last 12 – 18 months, while poly-L-lactic acid fillers can last 2 – 5 years.

Will my results look natural?

One of the biggest concerns people have about getting lip fillers is whether their results will look natural. This is because many people have seen celebrities or other individuals with overfilled lips. However, when done correctly by an experienced provider, dermal fillers can offer amazing outcomes. No one should be able to tell that you had a cosmetic procedure done.

How to prolong your lip filler results long-term

To prolong your lip filler results, it's important to follow any post-treatment guidelines provided by our team. Avoid pressing down on your lips or putting any pressure on the area for a few days after treatment. Additionally, using a lip balm with 30 SPF can protect your lips from UV damage. Ask about booking touch-up appointments at Spyglass Dermatology to maintain your amazing results.
