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 fillers in San Diego for results that look and feel completely natural and can last up to one year.

How Is Lip Augmentation Performed?

First, your board-certified practitioner will look closely at your lips to determine the correct amount of filler to use and the ideal locations for your injections. An antibacterial compound will be applied to ensure the lips are clean and ready for augmentation. In some cases, a topical anesthetic can be used to render your treatment painless and stress-free. We then inject your lips, adding supple volume to the upper lip and smoothing out the lines around the mouth for a beautiful, feminine pout.

The length of your procedure will depend on the precise number of injections you receive but typically does not exceed 20 minutes. After a half-hour, any topical numbing agent will begin to dissipate. Many clients come into the office over their lunch break for treatment, knowing they can get right back to work or school without missing a beat.

What lip fillers are offered at Avalon Laser?

We prioritize our patient’s desired outcomes and toil endlessly to ensure that we provide them with only the best in cosmetics. When it comes to lip fillers, there are no shortcuts to excellence and aesthetically pleasing results. As such, we offer tried and true fillers that guarantee a satisfactory outcome for our clients. 

Juvederm Ultra XC

Juvederm Ultra XC are versatile hyaluronic acid fillers that can be used to treat a wide array of issues. It is used often in both lip augmentation procedures and anti-aging procedures, particularly in the areas around the mouth. This is due to its potent volumizing effects. It has a markedly dense formulation, which allows it to increase fullness and volume in the lips.

The results from Juvéderm Ultra XC can last anywhere from several months to an entire year. 

Juvederm Volbella

For years, patients who have overly thin lips have turned to Juvéderm Volbella. Beyond its use in the lips, it is considered to be one of the most ideal treatments for overall signs of aging in the face. Juvéderm Volbella gently adds volume and moisture to the lip area, reducing lip wrinkles and giving the lips striking plumpness and radiance. This thin hyaluronic acid gel can be easily incorporated into the lips, leaving patients with natural-looking results that can last for up to a year. 

Restylane Kysse

Restylane Kysse is an injectable dermal filler that is specially designed to reverse the effects of volume loss in the lips. It is an effective means of providing fullness, improving lip color, and smoothing away lip wrinkles,  giving patients a more youthful, aesthetically appealing smile. Kysse is infused with XpresHAn technology, making it a highly customizable treatment that achieves remarkably natural results. What’s more, there is minimal downtime and virtually no discomfort. 

What Is The Cost Of Lip Fillers in San Diego?

Lip augmentation begins at $600 but the cost may vary depending on your needs and wants as well as your unique anatomy.

How Do Lip Fillers Work?

Lip fillers are most often formulated with hyaluronic acid, a biocompatible compound that is an innate component of youthful, radiant skin. As we age, our natural supply of hyaluronic acid begins to diminish, causing deflation in the lips as well as fine lines and creases. Once injected, HA gathers moisture, plumping the lip contours and creating a smooth, firm texture. Our highly trained injectors never overfill; instead, they tailor your treatment to your wishes for subtle, nuanced enhancement in the smile.

What Are The Potential Complications With Lip Injections?

Minor swelling and bruising after lip injections are considered normal side effects and usually don’t last more than a few days. Serious reactions are rarer, but may include swelling that lasts longer. If you experience swelling that concerns you, or you develop a fever after your treatment, you should contact us right away.

Hyaluronic acid-based fillers typically result in minimal swelling and bruising when compared to other types of injectables. Furthermore, because the HA in lip fillers mimics the hyaluronic acid found organically in the human body, there is little incidence of allergic reactions.

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?

Age-related lip thinning is very common. In fact, the only Dr. Tirgari prefers to use Juvéderm for lip augmentation in San Diego 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.
