WHAT IS LIP FILLER?
What's considered beautiful today is ever-evolving, but one feature that never goes out of style is having plump, pouty lips. Over the last decade, this look has become even more desirable, leading thousands of women and men to seek out improvements to their pout. While this treatment can create absolutely stunning results, some people may be deterred by the unnatural lip filler outcomes they see with certain celebrities or online influencers. At Spyglass Dermatology, Dr. Ryan Schuering and his team of specialists use only the subtlest techniques to ensure that your lips look full and natural. If you live in or near Stuart or Tequesta, FL, reach out to our team to schedule a consultation!
Lip Filler Reviews
"Dr. Schuering is fantastic. He has an impeccable bedside manner. I had Botox - forehead, crows feet and lip flip and a small amount of filler placed in my cheeks. I was so impressed with my results. I’ve had injections before and this by far was the best outcome I’ve ever had. I highly recommend him and his office. The staff are very friendly. I waited less than 10 min in the waiting room and my follow up was in and out in 30 min! I’ll be going back as long as he is there!"- K.L. / Google / Jun 03, 2022

I took advantage of the lip flip special and am so very happy I did, as my results are fabulous! My husband sees him regularly for his skin cancer and is very pleased with the results of his treatments. Thank you all!!"- W.M. / Google / Feb 23, 2023
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Lip Filler?
The use of lip fillers has become increasingly popular in recent years. When considering who is a suitable candidate for a lip augmentation, several factors come into play. Firstly, individuals who desire fuller or more defined lips can explore the option of lip injections. Whether someone naturally has thin lips or has noticed volume loss due to aging, lip fillers can provide a temporary solution to achieve the desired plumpness. However, having realistic expectations and communicating your desired outcome with your injector is important. Candidates should be healthy and free from any active infections or skin conditions around the lips. Those with a history of severe allergies or anaphylaxis may need to exercise caution and consult with a specialist. Ultimately, a consultation at Spyglass Dermatology in Staurt or Tequesta, FL will determine if lip fillers are suitable for you.
LIP INJECTIONS TREATMENT PROCESS
At Spyglass Dermatology, we perform lip filler treatments with Restylane® Kysse and BELOTERO®. Before we even begin, you will speak with a member of our team so we can fully understand the look you want. We will then assess your lips for their natural size and volume and determine how many units you need of the selected injectable. We may offer you a numbing cream to dull the area and ensure your comfort. From there, we will place the injections at the optimal locations and let you see your finished results! The area will be swollen for some time, but as the swelling goes down, you will see your final outcomes. To maintain your look, you may rebook every 3 – 4 months, depending on the product used.
Lip Filler FAQ
Where can I get my lips filled?
The American Academy of Dermatology Association recommends avoiding filling your lips at any non-medical setting, including non-medical spas, parties, salons, or at home. For the safest and highest-quality results, it is best to have the injections performed by an experienced doctor. Our team is skilled in lip injection procedures and can perform them safely and effectively.
Are lip fillers safe?
Getting your lips filled by an experienced dermatologist is incredibly safe. This procedure has been in practice for a long time, and the injectables used are time-tested. The staff at Spyglass Dermatology are well-trained to provide you with the care needed in such a delicate place–your lips!
What are some of the possible side effects?
Some patients will experience minor, temporary side effects at their injection sites. Those side effects might be:
- Sensitivity to touch
These side effects typically fade within 14 days. More severe side effects tend to occur due to poor medical training and experience on the provider's part. Those side effects can be dramatic or mild and include the following:
- Lumps and ridges
- Overly-filled areas
- Allergic reaction
- Skin discoloration
- Severe, abnormal swelling
How long do lip fillers last?
Injectable lip fillers are temporary and require consistent, repeat treatments to maintain your desired look. Most collagen-based fillers last up to three months, whereas PLLA and hyaluronic acid fillers can last up to a year or even longer. Our staff will recommend a treatment based on your goals and how often you'd like to get refills.
