At Bellava MedAesthetics & Plastic Surgery Center, we specialize in helping patients achieve the lip look they’ve always wanted.
With advanced dermal fillers like Juvederm, Restylane, and Sculptra, our expert providers can plump lips for a more youthful, voluptuous appearance.
How Do Lip Fillers Work?
Lip injections involve injecting dermal filler gel directly into the lips and surrounding areas. The hyaluronic acid in the gel attracts and binds to moisture, creating volume that lifts and contours the lips. Results are immediate, with most patients seeing a noticeable difference right after their injection appointment.
At Bellava, our medical aestheticians use cannulas instead of traditional needles for a more comfortable lip filler experience. Cannulas are thin, flexible tubes that glide smoothly under the skin to deliver the filler precisely where it needs to go. This technique minimizes pain, swelling, and bruising.
Benefits of Lip Fillers
Some of the benefits our patients enjoy with lip fillers include:
- Increased fullness – Lip fillers can significantly improve lip volume, creating a plumper pout. They are ideal for patients with aging or thinning lips who want to restore a more youthful look.
- Smoother lips – Fillers like Juvederm and Restylane fill in fine lines around the mouth, softening creases for smoother lips.
- Improved symmetry – Injectable fillers can be precisely placed to even out asymmetries and achieve perfectly balanced lips.
- Subtle enhancements – Unlike oversized lip implants, injectable lip fillers allow for subtle, natural-looking enhancements. Our providers carefully tailor treatments to each patient’s facial anatomy and aesthetic goals.
- Minimally invasive – Lip fillers require no surgery or downtime. Treatment takes just 15-30 minutes in our medspa and patients can get right back to their daily routines.
- Long-lasting results – With optimal filler placement, results can last 6 months or more before a touch-up is needed. Bellava providers recommend maintenance appointments every 6-12 months to sustain your new lip look.
Types of Lip Fillers We Offer
Bellava MedAesthetics provides several types of FDA-approved dermal fillers to meet each patient’s specific needs:
The Juvederm family of fillers includes Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Volbella XC, both ideal options for the lips and surrounding mouth area. Juvederm adds volume while also smoothing fine lines thanks to its hyaluronic acid base. Results typically last up to one year.
Restylane leverages XpresHAn TechnologyTM for natural-looking lip enhancement that lasts. Restylane smoothly plumps the body of the lips, while Silk is specially formulated for the delicate lip lines. Both provide up to one year of full, kissable lips.
Crafted with hyaluronic acid, a natural body substance, alongside lidocaine and water, this remarkable dermal filler creates a youthful, plumping effect.
Unlike HA fillers, Sculptra stimulates collagen growth for gradually increasing volume over time. Our providers often recommend it for patients wanting a significant increase in lip size. Multiple treatment sessions are needed but results can last over two years.
Radiesse adds volume via calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres that also promote natural collagen production. It’s an excellent choice for augmenting thinner lips and results can last a year or more.
Your exact filler will depend on the look you want to achieve and your individual lip anatomy. Our expert providers will walk you through the options during your consultation.
What to Expect During Treatment
Lip filler appointments at our Westchester med spa involve:
- Consultation – We’ll discuss your concerns, aesthetic goals, medical history, and lip filler options to create a customized treatment plan.
- Numbing – We may apply a topical anesthetic to maximize your comfort.
- Injection – Using precise cannula techniques, our medical aesthetician will inject the filler into strategic areas of the lips and mouth region.
- Massage – Light massage helps distribute the filler evenly for smooth, natural-looking results.
- Recovery – Immediately after your appointment you can return to normal activities. We’ll review aftercare instructions to minimize swelling, which typically resolves within a few days.
While individual experiences may vary, our patients find lip filler injections to be quick and comfortable. You’ll notice an obvious improvement in your lip volume and contours right away.
