The experienced lip injectors at Boston Medical Aesthetics can provide a subtle or dramatic lip enhancement, depending on your goals. We can create plump lips, add volume, enhance thin lips, and correct asymmetrical lips with treatment tailored to your needs.
Lip fillers are a semi-permanent solution for patients seeking an alternative to permanent lip implants, lip advancement, or fat transfer to the lips. Lip fillers can last several months up to one year, depending on the product that is selected. Compared to surgery, lip fillers have fewer side effects and complications. The lips will retain a natural softness difficult to achieve with lip implants, thanks to the smooth hyaluronic acid gel.
Lip fillers provide beautiful results, but unlike lip implants, the results from lip fillers are not permanent. The body will reabsorb the hyaluronic acid over a period of several months to one year. This process is entirely safe. As the lip filler wears off, you will notice the lips losing volume gradually until the lips return to their original size.
To maintain the results, schedule a lip filler appointment every 6-12 months, or as soon as the filler wears off. If you choose not to continue lip filler, there is no harm in doing so. Your lips will simply return to how they appeared before treatment.
If you have thin lips or lip asymmetry, you may be a candidate for lip augmentation. Patients that want fuller lips can get remarkable results with fillers in as little as 30 minutes. Adding volume and fullness with lip injections gives your face a more youthful, attractive appearance.
Boston Medical Aesthetics offers complimentary consultations so a medical expert can examine your lips to see if you are a good candidate. Please note pregnant or breastfeeding women are not eligible for dermal fillers. Other limitations may apply.
Boston Medical Aesthetics strives to deliver lip injections pain-free so you can enjoy beautiful lips with minimal discomfort. You are in good hands with our board-certified nurse practitioner, Jennifer Canesi, APN-BC. Prior to lip injection, she will apply topical anesthetic to numb the lips, so you are comfortable for the duration of treatment.
All of the products used at Boston Medical Aesthetics contain lidocaine to reduce discomfort during the procedure. Lip augmentation typically takes less than 30 minutes. It is normal to feel pressure during injection. While injections may cause mild discomfort, you will be relieved to know the pain subsides quickly. Most patients report a few minutes of discomfort is well worth it, as you will enjoy fuller lips for up to one year.
Non-surgical lip augmentation is safe and effective. Compared to surgery, it has fewer risks. Lip injections require proper training in injection techniques to get a pleasing result. It is important to understand that some lip injection side effects are common. The lips are sensitive. Redness, tenderness, bruising, and swelling are routine, even when properly injected. Our injector carefully performs lip injections with a fine needle to help reduce the risk of side effects. The initial lip swelling normally subsides in 1-3 days.
Boston Medical Aesthetics has a variety of medical-grade lip fillers so our patients have choices. Some of the most popular lip fillers today include:
Each lip filler has a unique gel consistency. All contain high-quality, safe hyaluronic acid as well lidocaine, a local anesthetic that eases pain during injection. If you have a lidocaine allergy, a history of anaphylaxis, or prior problems receiving lip injections, please notify us during the consultation.
Choosing lip fillers does not need to be complicated. Our experienced lip injector will be glad to recommend the best lip filler to meet your needs.
