Lip Augmentation With Fillers
Soft, smooth, full lips can change the look of your entire face. Thanks to lip augmentation/lip injections with dermal fillers at our Naples and Fort Myers-area practice, it’s easier than ever for people to add natural-looking volume. Best of all, these injectables are made by well-established names with a long track record of reliable, lasting results.
What Fillers Are Used During Lip Augmentation?
Our practice mainly uses JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® Kysse for lip enhancement. They are both FDA-approved, hyaluronic acid-based injectable fillers. These unique formulations make them particularly effective at adding volume to the lips and softening vertical lines around the mouth. Because hyaluronic acid is found naturally within the human body, it’s readily accepted and helps keep skin and other tissues smooth and supple.
How Does Lip Augmentation Work?
Unlike deep folds and wrinkles, which require high concentrations of hyaluronic acid to be adequately smoothed away, the lips get better results from a lower concentration. JUVÉDERM and Restylane Kysse have been formulated specifically to create natural-looking results, adding volume instantly and creating silkier, smoother lips while also smoothing out stubborn lip lines.
Who Is a Candidate for Lip Enhancement?
Good candidates should meet either of these criteria:
- Looking to augment lips that are thin, irregularly shaped, or poorly defined
- Bothered by lip wrinkles or vertical lip lines, sometimes called “smoker’s lines”
We offer other options for augmenting the lips, including fat transfer. However, dermal fillers are appealing because they’re nonsurgical, and there’s no recovery period or downtime.

What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Treatment with JUVÉDERM or Restylane Kysse is similar to other injectable fillers. Dr. Hasen or Brandie will begin treatment by numbing your lips. The topical numbing agent we use takes several minutes to take full effect. Once that preparation is complete, Dr. Hasen or Brandie will inject small amounts of filler into your lips, based on the discussions you’ve had about the concerns you wish to resolve. Because JUVÉDERM and Restylane Kysse come pre-mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, the procedure should be comfortable from start to finish.
You can expect to be in our office for about 45 minutes. Immediately after your lip augmentation treatment, you can return to your normal daily activities. Some redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising are possible, but these side effects are temporary and typically quite mild. As swelling diminishes, you’ll begin to see your ultimate results developing.
Our one-of-a-kind, board-certified physician assistant combines her medical training with extensive aesthetic training to provide nonsurgical treatments ranging from injectables and laser skin resurfacing to CoolSculpting® and Ultherapy®. Our patients love Brandie!Get to know Brandie
How Long Will My Lip Enhancement Results Last?
In clinical studies, the results of a single JUVÉDERM or Kysse treatment can be seen instantly. Kysse lasts about 1 year while JUVÉDERM typically lasts 9 months.
Lip augmentation with fillers is an easy, nonsurgical way for Naples and Fort Myers patients to smooth, plump, and define their lips. If you would like to learn more, request a consultation online or call our office at (239) 262-5662.
