Lip Filler Injections

Before and after

What is in lip injections?

Lip fillers are made of synthetic hyaluronic acid, a substance that we do have naturally in our body. In the process of aging, we gradually loose the hyaluronic acid which are the causes of hydration and plumpness in the lips. By injecting FDA approved hyaluronic acid to the lips we replace the volume loss, and plumb the lips. It is important to know the lip filler is not just for lip augmentation. There are different brands of FDA approved hyaluronic acids such as Juvéderm, Restylane, Versa, RHA that can be used. practitioner may use any of the brands based on your lip anatomy and expected result.
Of course, the result is very dependent on the practitioner skills and knowledge of anatomy. Lip filler can restore your lips volume structure and shapes

Depends on the area and main patient concern we use different type of PDO. The PDO thread can be used in Mid face lift, lower face lift, neck lift, under eye,
Nasolabial lines, marriontte lines, and brow lift.

What can I expect from lip filler treatment?

Either you have lost volume due to process of aging or you simply would like to have more plumb in the lips you can achieve the result. Of course, lip filler can give the natural looking result as well. Depend on type of result you ask for you can get anywhere from natural appearance to celebrity pout.  Lip filler usually last between 6 to 12 months depend on the amount filler used, your lips type, and of course your body metabolism. Lip filler is diffentent than lip flip. Lip flip is basically using few units of Neurotoxin (Botox) to relax the round muscle around the mouth which cause subtle eversion of your lips. Basically, lip flip show your natural lips more while does not add any volume. If you are not certain to be ready for lip filler lip flip can be first step for you. We do not recommend lip filler during pregnancy or breast- feeding time.

What to do before treatment?

It is recommended to avoid any anti-inflamatory medicine ( Advil, Naproxe) or blood thinner few days before procedure to decrease the chance of bruising. Avoid Vitamin E, Turmeric, fish oil few days before the procedure. Avoid drink alcoholic beverage specially the night before the treatment since it causes more bleeding during procedure. If you have a history of recurrent cold sore make sure to inform your practitioner in the consultation session so you can start prophylaxis medicine few days before treatment.

How does the treatment is performed in Sunny Aesthetic?

The day of treatment we use local anesthesia cream about 40 minutes ahead of treatment. Most of the patients can tolerate the procedure very well under topical anesthesia however if you feel need more anesthesia, we offer nerve block as well.

We inject the HA filler to the lips with smallest needle to reduce the possible discomfort. The treatment usually takes between 30 to 45 minutes at Sunny Aesthetic.

After injection the injected anesthesia or topical anesthesia usually takes about an hour to wear off. The swelling is the most common side effect immediately after lip filler. what you see is not the result thought. Swelling subside within two weeks. Brusing is another expected side effect. We recommended the frequent icing for the first 24 hours to decrease the chance of swelling and bruising. Elevate you head at night, and avoid salty foods.

Avoid exercise 24 to 48 hours after treatment. Exercise increases the blood flow to the lips and may increase the swelling.

Depends on patient goal the number of syringes are different however we do not recommend more than one syringe in one treatment session.
