Your lips are one of the most defining facial features.

Many people turn to lip fillers to enhance their natural beauty, restore volume and improve shape. Whether you’re looking for a subtle boost or a more dramatic transformation, understanding the lip filler process and knowing what to expect in terms of initial result is essential. We want you to be well prepared and will walk you through a lip filler appointment, from initial consultation to injection.

The Lip Filler Process: Unveiling Your Best Smile

Consultation and Goal Setting

Before diving into the procedure, you’ll have a consultation with a licensed medical provider. This is the perfect opportunity to discuss your goals, expectations, or any concerns you might have. Your provider will assess your facial anatomy to determine the best approach for your unique needs.


Lip injections can be a painful process, but we offer a variety of pain management options to ensure you are most comfortable throughout the treatment. We first apply numbing cream or local anesthetic to provide adequate pain relief. We also offer Pronox, which is a patient-controlled gas that contains oxygen and nitrous oxide, to ease any anxiety and minimize pain.

The Injection

We use hyaluronic acid fillers for lip enhancement because of their natural-looking results and ability to integrate smoothly within the lips. Your provider will choose the product most appropriate for you and your goals, this can range from hydration improvement with RHA Redensity to improved volume with Restylane Kysse. We use the smallest needle possible during injection, allowing for precise placement of filler. During this time you may feel mild pressure or stinging, but this will subside as filler contains lidocaine to further numb the area.

Instant Results

Once the injections are complete, you’ll see an immediate transformation in your lips. They’ll appear fuller, more youthful and beautifully defined. The best part- enjoy long-lasting results of up to 8-10 months!
