Thin lips can be very damaging to self-esteem for some patients who consider full lips to be sexy and more attractive. Thin lips are usually hereditary, although some patients may experience thinning of the lips due to aging.
At Avalon Laser in San Diego and Carlsbad, we offer Juvederm lip augmentation for these patients. Juvederm results look and feel completely natural, and the results can last up to one year.
Lip augmentation with dermal fillers carries a lot less risk than lip implants and can be adjusted at any time. For example, we can add more Juvederm for more volume, or less Juvederm after the first treatment had been absorbed by the body. To learn more about lip augmentation, please read the paragraphs below or call 800-896-1138 if you're ready to make an appointment.

Why Consider Lip Augmentation Treatments?
Our patients usually consider this treatment for several reasons. Many are not happy with their naturally thin lips and strongly believe that they would look and feel better about themselves with fuller lips. Some used to have fuller lips, which have started to thin due to age.
Age-related lip thinning is very common. In fact, the only body part that continues to grow as we age is our nose, the rest of our facial features begin to shrink and facial volume is lost and collagen production dwindles. We understand our patients’ reasons and we do everything we can to help our patients look and feel better about themselves.
Our patients often select the more natural lip augmentation with Juvederm over a surgical augmentation. Lip augmentation with Juvederm offers several benefits when compared to surgical lip implants, including:
- No anesthesia
- No stitches
- No foreign materials in the body (lip implants)
- Lower risk of pre-and-post-operative complications
- A more natural look
- Easy touch-up treatments with adjustable results
- More cost-effective than surgery
How Does Lip Augmentation with Juvederm Work?
When injected into the lips, Juvederm works much like usual when injected into other parts of the face. It is composed of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body in charge of tissue volume. When injected, the substance gives immediate volume to the treatment area, in this case the lips. the substance in then absorbed into the body over time, at which time patients need another treatment.
Dr. Tirgari carefully and gently injects a predetermined amount of Juvederm into the patient’s lips, depending on how much volume the patient needs for best results. Naturally-looking lips are strongly recommended. Dr. Tirgari and his facial aesthetic team specialize in determining the perfect dosage of Juvederm for stunning lip enhancement results. Our Juvederm already contains a numbing agent so our patients don’t experience any discomfort during their lip augmentation treatment.
Recovery and Aftercare
Lip enhancement does not require any recovery time. Patients can enjoy their beautiful, full lips right away. Some patients may experience mild swelling and bruising, which subsides very quickly, usually within the first 24 hours.
Dr. Tirgari will monitor your comfort level during and after treatment. You can call one of our staff members anytime should you have any questions. Follow-up treatment will be scheduled at your discretion.
