Lip Filler Injections

Lip Filler Enhancement in New Jersey

We receive requests for fuller, more luscious lips almost every day. Plastic surgeons achieve lip enhancement by “plumping” the lips with various materials. Over the past ten years, a multitude of products have come to market and vanished just as quickly.

Fortunately, several new products long available in Europe are now available in America. These new substances are organic polymers which are generally associated with fewer side effects and remain longer, sometimes up to one year, before resorption. An effective and popular lip-plumping injectable is Juvéderm®.

Juvéderm fills the skin with a natural substance that is water-soluble. It is semi-permanent in that it is reabsorbed by the body over time. Juvéderm is a gel with a velvety consistency that comes from Hyaluronic acid – a substance that is found in skin naturally. Once injected into the lips, Juvéderm gives back the plumpness and youth that had once thinned out from aging. If you would like to know more about lip enhancement please call Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey and ask to set up a complimentary consultation with our aesthetician.

Treatment Overview

Dermal lip fillers can take anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour to complete, allowing for time for the numbing medication to take effect before the injections are administered. Most patients will require a 1 to 2 syringes of lip filler to achieve the results they want, although this can vary from patient-to-patient. 

Are Lip Injections Right for You?

Dermal filler lip injections can benefit both men and women looking to reshape their lips or add subtle fullness around the mouth. Non-surgical lip filler can increase lip size or add subtle volume to the lips, creating more definition to the mouth, and correcting asymmetries to the lips.

Contact PSANJ to schedule a private lip injection consultation at either of our New Brunswick, New Jersey, or Princeton, New Jersey locations. We look forward to seeing you at Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey.
