Lips, pouts, and cupid bows denote femininity and youth.
Lips can become thin as we age or even be thin through genetics. Lip augmentation in Northern California can be artistically placed to emphasize the lips or rebalance the proportion between upper and lower lips.

HOW IT WORKS
Learn more about our lip augmentation in Northern California.
Lip injections commonly take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on which areas are being corrected. Your face will be cleaned, and the injection spots will be selected. To reduce discomfort during the process, dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic. After your lip augmentation treatment in Northern California, you are allowed to go back to your daily routine, but strenuous activity, including exercise, should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You should be careful to not touch your face after your treatment to avoid massaging the filler into other areas.
What to Expect
Here’s what to expect when you get lip augmentation in Northern California.
You typically experience a noticeable improvement immediately after your Juvéderm procedure, but you may also develop mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for approximately 7 – 10 days.
The results of dermal fillers usually are visible for up to one year; some patients find that their improvements last longer after multiple years of treatments.

How much does lip filler cost?
Your cost for lip augmentation will vary based on how much filler is necessary for the treatment area. Prior to your injections being administered, a customized treatment plan will be made to fit your goals and budget. After this, your injector can discuss cost estimates and payment options.
Are lip injections painful?
Most fillers have a local anesthetic built into them, so the answer is not. Although most patients do not find it necessary, a local anesthetic can also be applied to the treatment area prior to injection if you are worried about pain. Following the treatment, you may feel some slight swelling and bruising that will usually be gone in 5 – 7 days, depending on the treatment area. You should contact our office if you experience any lasting pain or abnormal side effects after your treatment.
What results can I expect?
It may take 1 – 3 days to see the full results of your treatment. Generally, it only takes one session to achieve your goals. However, you can schedule a second appointment if you would like to intensify your results.
How long do results typically last?
The effects of one lip augmentation treatment can last from 9 to 12 months. This will vary, depending on what filler is used and where it was injected. The longevity of results can also depend on how fast your body breaks down the product.
