Lip Fillers

Lip fillers, also known as dermal fillers, are a cosmetic treatment used to enhance the appearance of the lips. They are typically made from a substance called hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body that helps to plump and hydrate the skin.

Dermal fillers are injected into the lips using a fine needle, and the procedure is done in a Skin and Cancer Institute dermatologist’s office. The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after.

Dermal fillers can be used to add volume to the lips, create a more defined shape, and reduce wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth. They can also be used to correct asymmetry in the lips and to enhance the appearance of the Cupid’s bow.

SCI dermatologists are medical professionals who are highly trained in the use of dermal fillers. They are able to assess the patient’s individual needs and recommend the right type of filler and the right amount to use. They also have the skills and knowledge to administer the treatment safely and effectively, minimizing the risk of complications.

It is important to note that not all lip fillers are created equal and not all injectors are trained the same, so it is important you use a reputable and experienced injector like our SCI board-certified dermatologists. It is also important to have realistic expectations and understand that there may be some swelling and bruising after the procedure, which usually subsides within a few days.

Overall, lip fillers can be a safe and effective way to enhance the appearance of the lips, but it is important to work with a qualified and experienced SCI board-certified dermatologist.
