Injectables to Volumize and Re-Shape Lips in Toronto

Lip fillers at Toronto’s Avebelle Cosmetic Clinic are facial fillers that improve the structure, shape, and size of the lips. Some people naturally have always had smaller lips due to genetics and DNA, but they can also lose volume because of aging. Just like the rest of the skin on the face, your lips themselves and the skin surrounding them often lose volume as you age. As fat pads break down beneath the skin and collagen loss occurs, it’s common for the lips to become thinner and fold inward. The skin on our lips is already very thin, delicate, and often goes unprotected. UV damage from sun exposure, smoking, and excessive inflammation can also cause collagen in the lips to break down at a faster rate. Tiny vertical wrinkles may also form between the upper lips and nose because of the repeated action of pursing the lips.

What are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers are injections of synthetic or natural materials into the upper and/or lower lips. Like other facial fillers, they are crystal clear, soft gels in various consistencies. By helping you get your desired appearance, lip enhancement can improve self-esteem. Most of the popular injections for lip enhancement are temporary fillers that contain a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid – this is a substance your skin creates naturally to regulate hydration.

Lip fillers give more dramatic, natural looking volume to the lips than makeup would provide. These fillers are reversible. Lip fillers can be used to increase the size of the lower and/or upper lip. Whether you want to add more volume or restore fullness to thinning lips, fillers can be also used to refine, define, and contour the lip shape while maintaining a natural look. Lip fillers also improve the symmetry and proportion of the lips in relation to the rest of the face.

Who is a Good Candidate for Lip Fillers?

The best candidates for lip fillers are those who are in good physical health and maintain realistic expectations. They are ideal for patients who don’t need or desire extensive invasive surgical procedures to improve the volume of their lips and prefer to have little to no downtime. Lip fillers aren’t intended for patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Patients who have active oral infections such as canker sores or cold sores may not be good candidates.

Lip Fillers Procedure Details

When you meet with Avebelle Cosmetic Clinic’s skilled nurse injectors, they will talk to you about your goals, expectations, and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors. They will assess your face shape and take measurements. Prior to lip fillers, a topical or local numbing agent or nerve block technique to the lip area is done to completely numb the lips and relieve any discomfort. Lip fillers can be performed very quickly in the office with almost no downtime. After the areas to be injected are assessed, the filler is injected into the lips with a very fine needle. Ice may be applied to the lips before and after lip enhancement to ease any swelling and bruising.

Results and Recovery from Lip Fillers

Some improvements will be instantly noticeable. The lips will look and feel natural after they have healed. Any discomfort typically goes away within the first twelve to twenty-four hours, but it may take anywhere from a few days to a week for the swelling to completely dissipate. Patients should avoid contracting the lips by drinking through a straw for at least twenty-four hours and avoid placing too much pressure on the lips. Lip fillers are temporary – they eventually are metabolized and absorbed. These fillers have a lifespan of around one year.

Other Types of Facial Fillers

In addition to lip fillers, Avebelle Cosmetic Clinic offers a variety of injectable fillers for enhancing other areas of the face including temporary hyaluronic acid fillers such as undereye fillers, jawline contouring, cheek fillers, and chin fillers, along with collagen stimulator fillers.

Collagen stimulator fillers such as Radiesse® and Sculptra® also are used for enhancing facial contours but they are longer lasting as they stimulate the skin’s own natural collagen production to restore fullness.
