Whether you have always wanted fuller lips or miss the soft, natural volume you used to have, you can achieve your aesthetic goals with lip enhancement treatments at Krauss Dermatology. These treatments use injectable lip fillers to plump and add volume to your lips while maintaining your natural-looking expressions and motion. Wrinkling and “lipstick” or “smokers’” lines around the lips can also be improved.

What are Lip Enhancement Treatments?

Because your lips are such a flexible, expressive part of your features, any techniques used to enhance them must maintain or improve this natural softness. Lip fillers offer the perfect balance of added volume and a smooth, fluid formula that moves naturally with your lips when you speak, smile, or laugh. These treatments can add a subtle hint of fullness or a more dramatic boost, depending on your needs and goals.

How Long Do Lip Enhancement Treatments Last?

If you are considering lip enhancement, you most likely want to know what to expect and how long your results will last. Results vary depending on your metabolism and the type of product, but most lip fillers last about a year. Using a lip balm with sunscreen and keeping lips well-hydrated can help them look soft and full for longer. 

Which Fillers Are Used for Lip Enhancement?

At Krauss Dermatology, we use only hyaluronic acid-based fillers as they feel and look the most natural and are even reversible.  RHA® (Redensity, RHA2 or RHA3) by Revance,  Juvederm®  (Juvederm Ultra or Volbella), or Restylane® (Refyne, Kysse) lip fillers for plumping your lips and smoothing fine lines around your mouth, including the thin lines that cause lipstick to “feather” around your lips. Both families of fillers have several lip filler options which will be custom chosen for your anatomy and preferences.

These filler brands use hyaluronic acid, a material naturally found in your skin that boosts hydration and smoothness. Hyaluronic acid can form different types of interlinking chains that allow it to add volume while remaining smooth and flexible. The most common choices our board-certified dermatologists choose for lip enhancement include.

Is There Any Downtime After Lip Fillers?

Your lip filler injections may take as little as 15 minutes to complete, and you can return to your usual activities immediately. While there is no downtime required, you may notice some minor bruising or swelling in the area. While any bruising will fade within a week, we have treatments to help any bruising disappear more quickly if you prefer.  

Am I a Good Candidate for Lip Enhancement Treatments?

People who benefit from lip enhancement treatment are healthy adults who want to see improvements in the size, shape, and definition of their lips. Candidates may also have concerns about fine lines around the lips. Hyaluronic acid is one of the safest and most widely used aesthetic treatments, especially when injected by dermatologists. All hyaluronic acid fillers are removable with a simple injection, whether it is adjustment of a tiny bump or lump, or removal of some or all of the filler.

Dr. Krauss is exceptional. She takes her time with her patients, explains everything thoroughly and does a fantastic job. I highly recommend her.
