Lip Enhancement

The lips are a central feature of the face.  Your genetics determine the shape of your lips.  Some people are born with naturally full lips and others have lips with a more delicate shape.  As we age, the lips can lose volume and the skin around them can become wrinkled.

Fillers can be used both to enhance the shape and volume of lips, and to fill in vertical lines around the lips.  Dr. Rokhsar typically uses Restylane or Juvederm for the lip enhancement procedure.  Both of these fillers are made with hylauronic acid, a sugar that occurs naturally in the body.  Because this molecule is non-animal based and is found naturally in the human body, it is not necessary to perform an allergy test before the procedure.

What happens on the day of the procedure?

A numbing cream will be applied for about thirty minutes before the procedure.  This helps to make the procedure more comfortable.  Dr. Rokhsar will discuss your goals with you before the procedure and work with your guidance throughout in order to obtain the best result.

Are there any side effects?

There is no downtime after this procedure and you may return to your regular activities immediately after.  You may experience slight bruising, swelling, and redness.  All of these side effects should resolve within a couple days.
