Lip Augmentation in Menlo Park: How it Works and Why We Love It

It’s no secret that some of the most famous and envied lips of today have been achieved through the careful placement of fillers. If you’re looking to enhance your pout by making it more full or plump, lip augmentation in Menlo Park can be a perfect option for you!

Achieve the perfect pout

Lip augmentation is one of the best lip treatments in Menlo Park, and the most popular. A lip augmentation can help you both plump up the shape of your lips and correct asymmetry with results that are instant, non-surgical, and non-invasive.

How it works

As we age, the collagen production in areas like the face and mouth naturally slows down, which allows for the formation of wrinkles as we get older. The face in particular may lose fat deposits as well, causing sagging or drooping around the cheeks and mouth. Lip augmentation works to replace the lost collagen and fat, restoring the appearance of full, plump lips. 

People with genetically thin lips may also be a great candidate for lip augmentation. Injections are a great option to enhance your natural features.

Our lip augmentation procedure uses hyaluronic acid-based fillers from Juvéderm® or Restylane®. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance already found in the body, which helps your lip treatment look and feel more natural. Our team will always consult with you beforehand to build a custom treatment plan that best fits your goals!

Before the injections begin, we will numb the mouth area with a topical cream. Your aesthetic provider will then inject the filler along the edges of your lips where they join your face. The number of syringes and injections will depend on the type of filler and desired results.

The lip augmentation procedure itself lasts anywhere from 15–60 minutes depending on your custom treatment plan. Most people experience swelling for a few days afterwards, but your new, full lips should be on display within 3–5 days! 

Lip augmentation is temporary, so we recommend coming back to see us every 6–9 months to maintain your results.

Benefits of lip augmentation

Part of what makes lip augmentation in Menlo Park the best is that it can be done quickly, in the office, and with minimal downtime. Recovery is short and sweet! Because the procedure is non-surgical and non-invasive, you can get out of the office and right back to your day.

Lip augmentation can be corrective. Genetics and age are the two main influences to the shape and size of your lips. Research shows that about 30% of people experience lip asymmetry, and even more have thin lips naturally. Lip augmentation both enhances thin lips and corrects lip asymmetry, making it the best lip treatment for achieving your unique shape and size goals 👄

Lip augmentation is customizable and reversible. Because our lip fillers are made from organic materials, they are subject to your body’s metabolism. Your filler will naturally fade between 6 months to a year after your lip augmentation procedure, but follow-up appointments are an easy way to keep your pout plush!
