Kylie Jenner’s lip transformation may have set the internet abuzz in 2015, but beautiful, naturally full lips are timeless. Plump, beautiful lips are a universal symbol of youthful beauty, and a captivating smile has the power to enhance the beauty of your entire face.
At Lucere Dermatology, we love dermal fillers for how they can subtly and naturally enhance anyone’s unique beauty. One of the most popular uses for dermal fillers is to get full, beautifully proportioned lips.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like substances that are injected under the skin to fill in lines and wrinkles and areas that commonly lose volume with age, such as cheeks and lips. They can be used to smooth and soften lines and wrinkles, enhance and reshape facial features, restore volume and fullness to aged skin, and to plump up lips. Dermal fillers come in different formulas and consistencies suitable for different treatment areas and concerns.
There are different types of lip fillers made with a variety of body-safe substances, but the most common ingredient in premium lip fillers is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the skin, and you may already know it from your favourite moisturizers and serums!
How can injectable fillers give me beautiful lips?
Dermal fillers are the perfect treatment to enhance lips. They add volume for a full, plump pout. They smooth out fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth to restore youthfulness. And, they can even be used to enhance the shape of lips to create a more symmetrical appearance.
At Lucere Dermatology, we carry a full range of premium fillers by brands such as Juvederm and Restylane. These fillers are specially formulated for specific treatment areas and use, to ensure that any filler treatment looks totally natural. Our skillful injectors know that lip enhancement is an art, as well as a science. They use the most advanced injection techniques and premium products to create a naturally full and beautiful look.
I’d like to get lip fillers. What should I expect during and after treatment?
First, you will have a consultation with your lip injection provider where you can describe the results you want, and they will explain the procedure and filler products available.
During the procedure, you might feel a slight pinch from the injections. However, a topical numbing cream can be applied, and most fillers include lidocaine to minimize pain. Treatment can be as quick as 15-20 minutes.
The most common side effects are some pain after injection, swelling, tenderness, bruising or redness, and firmness or bumps. These effects usually fade by the end of the day, but you may see some swelling and bruising for a few days so we don’t recommend scheduling your treatment right before a special event.
What results can I expect?
Lip injections are one of the most satisfying cosmetic procedures because they are quick and you can see results right away! The full results of your treatment will be visible within two weeks after your appointment.
You can expect to see fuller, more symmetrical lips, although your results will depend on the treatment goals you discussed with your injector. Browse our lip fillers before and after gallery to see some of our incredible results.
Some people want fuller, more beautiful lips but worry that lip fillers will look obvious and “overdone.” With premium fillers specially formulated for lip enhancement and advanced injection techniques, lip enhancement is a subtle, natural-looking treatment that will leave you looking refreshed and never overdone.
Injectable fillers are not permanent, so if you love your results be sure to book a top-up appointment to maintain your look. Since fillers are made from natural substances, the body gradually absorbs the product over time. Premium fillers last from 6 months to 2 years depending on the product, treatment area, and how your body responds.
How much do lip fillers cost?
The cost of lip injections depends on individual treatment. We are proud to offer premium treatment administered by a board-certified dermatologist at competitive prices. Our experienced team uses advanced techniques to optimize every treatment, and we charge for results, not by the amount of filler used. That means you will never be pressured to use more filler than needed to get the best look.
Where should I get lip fillers?
Your lips are one of your most visible features, so it is important to be able to trust in the experience and skill of the person providing your treatments, as well as in the quality of the product used.
At Lucere Dermatology, we use only the most advanced injection techniques and premium products to ensure the best results. Our expert team has over 40 combined years of experience injecting lip fillers in Edmonton.
