Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can give you plump and fuller lips.
The most common form of lip augmentation is injectable dermal fillers. Fillers can be injected in your lips or around your mouth which can result in the appearance of your lips by adding volume, shape, and plump.
The most common types of fillers are hyaluronic acid(found in the human body) and collagen (which are now used less in treatments). The benefits of using one of our hyaluronic acid fillers are: less bruising, longer lasting results, less allergic reactions, and quickly dissolved bumps from the injection sites.
This treatment can last up to six months and will typically need a touch up to keep the shape and volume. APPROVED USES

It is not known if RADIESSE® or RADIESSE® (+) is safe or effective in the lips, or in the area around the eyes.
The microspheres in RADIESSE® and RADIESSE® (+) can be seen in X-rays and CT Scans. It is very important that you tell your health care provider that you have had RADIESSE® or RADIESSE® (+) dermal filler.

You should minimize strenuous activity and avoid extensive sun or heat exposure for about 24 hours after treatment and until any swelling or redness has resolved.
Tell your health care provider if you are taking blood thinners or medicines that can interfere with the clotting of blood, such as aspirin or warfarin. These medicines might make it more likely that you will experience bruising or bleeding at the injection site.
Tell your health care provider if you have any diseases, injuries or disabilities of the hand, if you have a history of forming large, raised scars or if you have had any other skin treatments such as skin peels.
