Many of our patients wonder how lip augmentation with injectables creates a fuller lip line. They want the full, plump, just-kissed look they see in movies and fashion magazines, but they don’t want to have invasive surgeries or long recovery times. That’s where lip augmentation with injectables comes into play. Injectable treatments can enhance the volume of your lips non-surgically

The Clinic of Facial Plastic Surgery, led by Dr. David Sherris, provides patients in Buffalo, NY,  with injectable treatments that empower them to be their confident, authentic selves. Our treatments deliver the fast, affordable results you’ve been looking for.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injections of gel-like hyaluronic acid (HA) that temporarily increase the size, volume, and shape of your lips. HA is a naturally occuring chain of carbohydrates that are the main element in keeping your skin cells hydrated and youthful. HA is also responsible for giving your lips a moist, pillowy appearance because the compound attracts collagen, which creates elasticity and firmness in skin cells. 

Is Lip Augmentation Safe? 

Absolutely! Lip injections are an FDA-approved treatment. They are considered one of the safest and most common cosmetic procedures for both women and men. The possibility of infection is very low, and severe complications are virtually unheard of when the injections are completed by reputable providers. Since hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the human body, there’s zero risk of adverse reaction or rejection. 

How Long Do Injectable Treatments Last?

Depending on the type of injectable and the amount of filler you choose to receive, the results can last anywhere from six months to a year. If you want to maintain your lips, you will need to return for regular treatments. Your body metabolizes the hyaluronic acid naturally, which eventually returns your lips to their original shape. The good news is, you can adjust the amount of filler you want each visit to find your ideal look. 

Cost of Dermal Fillers

If you’re worried about pricey “add-ons” for your lip injections, don’t be. There’s no prep procedure you need beforehand or special measures that cost you more money. You’re simply charged for the price of the dermal fillers, typically around $500 per syringe, depending on the brand of injectable you choose. Just remember: Your fillers do not last forever. To maintain the volume of your lips, you will need to return for additional injections. 

Book Your Consultation 

Because your lips are such a central part of your face, you want to make sure that you feel good about them. If you look into the mirror and can’t help but think that your lips are too small, too thin, the wrong shape, or just not the way you think they should look, contact our office in Buffalo, NY.
