Does Lip Filler Hurt?

No, Lip filler does NOT hurt as Dr. Z applies a specially formulated topical ointment that makes the lips numb. Patients are always surprised by how painless and easy it is.

How Long Does Lip Filler last?

This depends on the patient and partly on the filler that was used. The range is 9 months to 1.5 years. The filler dissolves progressively rather than all at once. Some patients notice this slight decrease in volume after 6 – 9 months and come back for more.

What is the Biggest Misconception About Lip Fillers?

One of the most common misconceptions about lip fillers is that it will result in a fake, plastic look. However, it’s important to understand that it’s not the filler that develops that unappealing look, but the doctor that performs the treatment. This is avoided by injecting the correct amount of filler in the proper location. Under the careful hands of Dr. Z, fillers can provide an improvement to your look that appears natural and aesthetically pleasing.

How Do Lip Fillers Differ From Each Other?

Lip fillers are a range of injectable gel-like substances made from Hyaluronic Acid, which is a sugar that is already naturally found in the body.

The difference between the specific fillers is the concentration of hyaluronic acid and how it is prepared. This leads to their variation in firmness, ability to spread, and ability to hold water. The firmer gels are great at adding shape and lifting the lips while the softer gels provide more subtle improvements in volume. 

Commonly used Filler products for lips include Juvederm® Ultra, Juvederm® Ultra Plus, Juvederm® Volbella, Restylane®, and Belotero®.

As a highly skilled board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Zhuravsky understands the different properties and how they can be used to develop your desired look. Dr. Z’s experience ensures he’s can offer the best lip fillers New Jersey has to offer. There’s no one size fits all approach to lip augmentation, so each situation must be assessed carefully in order to achieve the best results.

How Are Lip Fillers Used?

The filler material is injected into the lips in order to alter shape, structure, and volume. This can be done either to enhance and augment the lips, or to rejuvenate a youthful appearance. Enhancement usually comes in the form of adding volume while accentuating the aesthetic units of one’s lip. This must be done very precisely to avoid distorting the lips or making them too big relative to other facial features. Rejuvenation is often a combination of restoring structure and volume thus making the lips more youthful.

The Benefits of Lip Fillers

Lip fillers have become highly popular because it is a simple and quick method to effectively enhance the appearance of one’s face. Just think of the difference that lipstick can make and you’ll see that the lips are a very important aesthetic feature of the face.

Some of the outstanding benefits provided by the lip augmentation treatment includes:

  • Increased lip volume and definition
  • Fuller lips that create a healthier, more youthful and sensual appearance
  • Facial harmony with balance among the eyes, cheeks, nose, and lips
  • Long-lasting improvements that you’ll see for over 6 – 9 months
  • Improved self-image that contributes to more confidence
