Lip filler improves the shape, size, symmetry, definition and texture of your lips. It enhances your smile, improves signs of lip ageing, and can be an effective way to naturally enhance your look. We precisely place dermal fillers in your lips to volumize, shape, define, and hydrate. The result is immediate, and any swelling is usually mild and quick to resolve.

At Avissa Skin, we understand the reservations people have about lip filler. Whether its pain, cost, or fear of looking fake, rest assured knowing we can help. We offer strong numbing for a near painless experience and use only premium FDA approved products. We know how to tailor your lip filler treatment to achieve the results you want.

We have multiple different filler products we can use, depending on your goals. If you want to add a lot of volume, we’ll use a thicker, more structured product. If you want less volume, or are just looking to soften the lines around the mouth, we’ll use something much softer.

Want the “Russian Lips”?

Preparing For Treatment
Truth be told, there isn’t a whole lot of necessary preparation for facial filler. However, it’s key to note that some bruising and possible swelling may occur. Therefore, it is wise to schedule your appointment at least two weeks before an important event. Also, to help prevent bruising, avoid blood-thinning medications, including pain relievers and supplements like fish oil for a week prior to your appointment. (Also, smokers have an increased likelihood of bruising.) You may wish to take Arnica Montana several days leading up to your procedure, as this helps to minimize the chances of bruising.

Consult & Assessment
During your consultation, your specialist will carefully evaluate your skin condition and facial appearance. This will include your skin tone, as well as the features of your face that would look better augmented. Such areas will be marked appropriately to serve as guide during the actual treatment later on.

During Your Treatment
During your treatment, you will be made comfortable, and a topical numbing cream will be applied. The numbing cream will be removed after an appropriate amount of time, and your specialist will cleanse and prepare your skin for treatment. You will feel a pinch upon initial injection and will feel some pressure as the product is delivered. Many of the dermal filler products have a numbing agent in them, so you will continue to feel less of the treatment as it goes on. Most patients find the treatment very tolerable. Your aesthetic nurse injector may manipulate the product as needed. Once the filler has been administered, your skin is cleansed again to remove any markings. While you may feel some discomfort, swelling, or tenderness in the area, ice packs and pain medications usually do the trick.

After Treatment & Recovery
Dermal fillers are a no downtime procedure. After treatment, you’ll be able to leave our offices immediately. You’ll be able to drive yourself home. Many patients actually head right back to work. Redness, tenderness, and swelling can occur, but typically are minor and fade over the course of a few days. Makeup can be applied to cover any redness you may experience. It is important that you do not push or press on the treated areas. It is important that you do not disturb the areas where the product has been placed. Volumizing filler treatments do take typically 2-4 weeks to settle in and reach efficacy.
