Lips augmentation can be an excellent way to achieve the fullness you’re seeking.
Enhancing the lips or achieving a fuller, more shapely pout can be done through lip injections, which involve administering a volumizing agent to the lips. The most common options for lip enhancement are dermal fillers and fat grafting. Both options can be injected into the lips to restore fullness that has been lost over time, or to sculpt a plushness that never was.
Dermal fillers have been utilized for many years to smooth away wrinkles and restore youthful volume to the face, reversing some of the adverse effects of the ageing process. The dermal fillers recommended for lips augmentation treatments tend to be smoother, with smaller particles than other formulations, and produce natural volume without looking overdone. Lumina’s doctor uses Juvederm, an FDA-approved product with hyaluronic acid at the base. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in healthy human tissue and is widely used to treat wrinkles and augment the lips. Beyond adding volume, the hydrophilic nature of hyaluronic acid means that lips treated with this substance tend to look and feel more hydrated and less chapped.
Furthermore, as we begin ageing, the corners of the mouth can appear to sag or slouch, as well as the V-shaped area of the upper lip, better known as the cupid’s bow, begins to look a bit deflated and lose much of its youthful fullness. Lips augmentation can be an excellent way to achieve the fullness you’re seeking. There are several methods available within a lips augmentation procedure. Some are less invasive than others. Lips can be rejuvenated and thin full lips can be enhanced.
Are Lip Fillers Right for You?
Lip fillers can benefit both men and women looking to reshape their lips or add subtle fullness around the mouth. The individuals that reap the most significant rewards from lip fillers tend to have the following aesthetic goals:
- Increase lip size or add subtle volume to the lips
- Create a definition of the mouth that has been lost over time
- Correct asymmetries to the lips
- Smooth away vertical lines above the lips (known as lipstick or smokers lines)
Lumina’s doctor will assess your situation to determine whether lip fillers will be the best way to help you achieve these goals.
Preparing for Your Procedure
When performed by an experienced doctor, temporary lip injections are a safe and straightforward process. However, there are steps you can take before your treatment to increase your likelihood of a complication-free procedure. Lumina’s doctor may recommend the following to minimize bruising and swelling risk:
- Avoid nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications before your therapy since these can increase your bleeding and bruising risk slightly. Substances in this category include naproxen, ibuprofen and aspirin.
- Some supplements can have a similar effect to the medications listed above. Talk to lumina’s doctor if you take fish oil, vitamin E or St. John’s Wort. They may recommend stopping these substances for a few days before your treatment as well. Do not smoke in the days leading up to your injections. Nicotine works as a vasoconstrictor, which may create a higher risk for bleeding and bruising during and after your treatment.
- Hydrate well before your procedure to ensure your skin is in its healthiest possible state before your injections are administered.
- You may have additional recommendations based on your medical history or specific concerns. The closer you follow this advice, the more likely it is that your treatment will be safe, comfortable and successful.
Dermal lip fillers can take anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour to complete, allowing for time for the numbing medication to take effect before the injections are administered. Most patients will require a single syringe of Juvederm to achieve the results they want, although this can vary depending on the condition of your lips. Many patients find this procedure is not nearly as painful as they might have feared. Lumina’s doctor takes numerous precautions to make your experience as painless as possible. These steps include topical numbing cream, ice packs and injectable numbing medication. Most of Lumina’s patients claim a shot in the arm is more uncomfortable than their lip injections.

After Your Lip Injections
You will be able to return to your activities immediately following your lip injections. However, you may find your lips become swollen temporarily, sometimes up to one week, with accompanying bruising. Swelling can often be confused with a less-than-stellar result, so we encourage patients to wait a week to let that swelling subside before determining whether the outcome meets their expectations. In cases where excessive swelling occurs, or the patient does not like the results, Juvederm can be dissolved within minutes using a special dissolving agent.
Once the swelling goes down completely, you should see subtle fullness to your lips that enhances your appearance without belying the fact you had lip injections. The results of a dermal filler treatment typically last six months or longer. If you want to maintain your new look indefinitely, you will need to schedule regular treatment sessions at Lumina Aesthetics. The results from fat injections, on the other hand, should last indefinitely. We do offer rewards programs and financing to help make these procedures more cost-effective for you.
Achieving a Fuller Pout
When your lips don’t look proportionate to the rest of your facial features, it can throw your entire appearance off balance. By adding – or restoring – subtle plumping to the lips, we can produce a more youthful, vibrant look overall. Lumina’s doctor provides dermal fillers to the patients daily for a wide range of cosmetic needs and has the experience and expertise necessary to provide you with a positive experience and an optimal outcome.

Just about anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of their lips may be a candidate for lips augmentation. If you were born with thin, poorly defined lips, then Lumina’s doctor can help you achieve the beautiful, sexy lips you desire.
Lips augmentation is also an excellent option for individuals who have lost volume and definition in their lips as part of the ageing process. This procedure can help you restore the full, youthful lip appearance you once enjoyed.
