What is the perfect pout?

So, it’s no surprise that so many men and women are seeking the perfect pout via lip injections and fillers. If you are considering lip filler, we have everything you need to know at your fingertips at Laser of Arlington.

So what is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is an injectable procedure that improves lip size, shape, and contours with dermal fillers.  Patients often seek lip augmentation to achieve soft, full lips with increased definition and volume.

What Can Patients Expect from Lip Augmentation in Arlington?

Lip augmentation is performed in our relaxing and state of the art office and takes approximately 30 minutes.  Prior to the procedure, the treatment area will be numbed with a topical or local anesthetic to ensure total comfort  Then, an ultra-thin needle is used to administer lip filler as a series of precisely-placed injections. The injector may manually shape the product throughout the process to ensure the perfect application and shape.  Post-treatment, patients may also experience minor and temporary bruising and swelling. Afterwards, they are free to go about their day with no downtime!  Lip augmentation results are immediate and will continue to improve as the healing process takes place.

Which Fillers Can Be Used for Lip Augmentation?

Restylane and Juvederm are two of the most popular fillers for this procedure.They are both comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that’s naturally produced by the body and, therefore, doesn’t require allergy testing. Hyaluronic acid is also extremely hydrophilic and can hold up to 1000 its weight in water. As a result, HA fillers like Restylane and Juvederm provide instant volumizing and hydrating effects, for irresistibly soft and smooth lips.

How Long Do Results Last?

Our patients can enjoy that amazing volume and definition for 6 to 12 months, depending on the product used during the procedure.
