Today, both men and women are aiming to achieve fuller, plumper lips. Thanks to celebrities such as the Kardashians, fuller lips are now all the rage. If you want to get fuller lips in Brandon, you can do so with injectable fillers. Read on to learn more about this process.

What are Fillers?

Lip fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane are injectable treatments done to add volume to the lips. These fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body that attracts and binds water under the skin, creating volume. Fillers are a semi-permanent solution, usually lasting between 3-6 months before a touch-up treatment is needed.


With fillers, patients can choose the amount of augmentation they desire. You can choose just a subtle increase, or a more dramatic once, depending on the amount of filler injected. During your treatment, a topical numbing cream can be applied to help ensure your comfort during treatment. Then, a small, thin needle will be used to gently inject the filler into the targeted areas of the lips. Treatment is quick, usually only taking about 15-20 minutes to complete.  There is also no downtime following lip injections, so you will be able to return to your everyday routine right away.
