Lip enhancement for plumper, more attractive lips.

Thin lips can be very damaging to self-esteem if you 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, we offer Juvéderm lip augmentation in San Diego for results that look and feel completely natural and can last up to one year.

How does lip augmentation with Juvéderm work?

When injected into the lips, Juvéderm works much the same as when injected into other parts of the face. It is composed of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that aids in maintaining 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 point patients need another treatment.

What is recovery like after lip augmentation?

Lip augmentation 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.

FAQs about lip augmentation

Why should I consider lip augmentation?

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 once had fuller lips, which have started to thin due to age.

How common is age-related lip thinning?

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, facial volume is lost, and collagen production dwindles. We understand our patients’ reasons and we do everything we can to help them look and feel better about themselves.

What are the benefits of lip augmentation with Juvéderm?

Our patients often select the more natural lip augmentation with Juvéderm over a surgical augmentation. Lip augmentation with Juvéderm 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

What is Juvéderm made of?

Juvéderm is a line of injectable dermal fillers made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that occurs naturally in the body. HA delivers nutrients to the skin, adds volume and softness, and attracts moisture. At Avalon Laser, we use Juvéderm for our San Diego lip fillers containing lidocaine, a local anesthetic, for greater comfort during treatment.

What kind of aftercare and follow-up treatment can i expect?

Dr. Tirgari will monitor your comfort levels during and after your San Diego lip injections. You can call one of our staff members anytime should you have any questions. Follow-up treatment will be scheduled at your discretion.

How long do results last after lip augmentation with Juvéderm?

Although it may vary from patient to patient, lip augmentation results with Juvéderm Volbella XC or Juvéderm Ultra XC can last up to one full year. Volbella is an ideal injectable filler for not only adding subtle volume to the lips but also smoothing the appearance of vertical lip lines.

Will my treatment plan be individually-tailored for me?

Dr. Tirgari prefers to use Juvéderm for lip augmentation because it is very low-risk yet delivers gorgeous results. When you meet Dr. Tirgari, he will take a look at your lips and talk to you about your aesthetic goals. Based on this, he will tailor a treatment plan just for you.
