Everything You Need to Know About Lip Fillers

You’ve got more tools in your lip kit than just liner and gloss. With lip fillers, you can add fullness and plumpness to your lips, sculpting your perfect smile.

At Apex Dermatology of Westlake Village, California, our experienced care team, led by aesthetics expert Dr. Karin Harp, provides a full range of cosmetic fillers. Interested in lip fillers? Here’s what you need to know.

How do lip fillers work?

Most fillers use dermal injectables in different formulations to boost volume and fullness.  Lip fillers add volume to your lips, plumping up your skin to erase visible wrinkles, and filling in thin upper or lower lips. Typically, an injection appointment takes just 15 minutes!

You can use lip fillers to perfectly balance your smile. Consult with the experienced Apex Dermatology care team about your aesthetic goals, and how lip fillers could help you meet them.

What lip fillers are offered?

Different filler products target different areas of your face for cosmetic transformation. At Apex Dermatology, we provide a full range of cosmetic filler options, including multiple options from the Juvéderm® collection of hyaluronic fillers to transform your lips and smile. You can chose:

How long do lip fillers last?

Lip fillers are noninvasive, so you won’t need a lot of downtime after your injection appointment. You might feel a little pinch during the injection, and your lips could feel tender after treatment. We use anesthetics to minimize your discomfort with this injection procedure.

You start to see results right after your appointment, but it takes about four weeks for your full results to appear. Initial swelling fades and the filler fully integrates into your skin by that point. You could see some minimal redness or bruising immediately after your appointment that should fade within days.

Typically, your results with lip fillers last for 9-18 months. You can receive repeat injections to maintain results continuously as desired. If you aren’t totally satisfied with your lip filler results, let your provider at Apex Dermatology know! We can dissolve your fillers in just minutes with a simple injection of the enzyme hyaluronidase.

You can rely on the Apex Dermatology team to support your aesthetic goals. Talk to Dr. Harp and her team about your interest in lip fillers today to get started on your journey toward your ideal look. Schedule your initial consultation appointment online now, or call to book.
