What is lip augmentation?

Lip augmentation in North Scottsdale is a procedure performed to add volume to the lips and to enhance their shape and appearance. At Summit Aesthetics in north Scottsdale, we use a variety of advanced dermal fillers to augment and add shape to the lips in a minimally-invasive treatment with soft, natural-looking results.

Am I a candidate for lip augmentation with dermal fillers?

Lip augmentation in Cave Creek with dermal fillers is an excellent option for people who want to add volume to the lips without surgery. You may be a candidate for lip fillers if your lips have thinned with aging, or if you simply want fuller, shapelier lips. This treatment is also a good option for correcting vertical lines around the mouth.

Is there anything I should avoid before lip augmentation with dermal fillers?

Yes. Avoid blood thinners, including certain herbal medications and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, for two weeks before your Cave Creek lip fillers. Taking these meds can increase the likelihood of bruising with treatment.

What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid in lip fillers?

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin. It attracts moisture and gives the skin a plump, hydrated look, with effects that are seen immediately. Because it is a natural substance found in the body, there is less chance of allergic reaction with hyaluronic acid fillers.
