Who Does the the Best Lip Augmentation in Beverly Hills with Juvederm and Restylane Silk?

Age brings forth wisdom and wrinkles, but it also depletes the youthful fullness of the face and lips. As we age, the hyaluronic acid that attracts moisture beneath the skin begins to breakdown, causing the facial skin to sag and create a hollowing appearance. For the lips, the lines that form around the mouth create a puckering effect that makes the lips appear thinner.

To achieve fuller lips, you may consider a non-surgical lip augmentation treatment. In our Beverly Hills practice, we prefer the results achieved by Juvederm, made by the makers of Botox, and Restylane Silk, the newest lip enhancement filler on the market. Both of these dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, to restore the lost volume in the face for a more youthful appearance.

Juvederm works well by adding definition to the mouth and other facial features, providing superior results in the delicate tissues of the lips for a smooth, natural-looking appearance. Positive results can be seen immediately and usually last up to six months.

Restylane Silk is one of the latest fillers approved by the FDA to plump lips and fill in wrinkles that form around the mouth, and our Beverly Hills practice is one of only 30 practices nationwide to carry this innovative new injectable. It includes Lidocaine, an anesthetic that prevents pain from the needle and treatment and is available in tiny syringes filled with a gel full of small particles that infiltrate fine lines and wrinkles around lips more uniformly than other products. Using it around the outline of the mouth or directly into the lips provides excellent augmentation with smoother results. Similar to Juvederm, Restylane Silk lip augmentation in our Beverly Hills aesthetics practice will last for up to six months.

Most patients prefer receiving Juvederm and Restylane Silk injections because there is no recovery time involved, unlike with lip implants which require surgery. You can apply your makeup, leave the clinic, and promptly return to normal activity. To avoid bruising, it is best to avoid over-the-counter pain relievers like aspirin or ibuprofen, as these are blood thinners and will cause additional bleeding and bruising. It is common for minor swelling to occur immediately following injections, but this subsides within a few days.

As Juvederm is injected into the mouth area, it may cause a bit of discomfort; however, most professionals apply a topical skin anesthetic or dental block, or opt to use a special Juvederm formulation containing a numbing agent; Restylane Silk contains lidocaine to reduce discomfort.

The cost of lip augmentation varies depending on clinic location and the type of procedure performed. Dermal fillers are usually charged according to how much material is required. Most patients use no more than one of two syringes of Juvederm or Restylane Silk. Since most health insurance does not cover cosmetic treatments, your out-of-pocket expenses will cost approximately $550 per syringe.

Before you undergo lip augmentation, you need to have realistic expectations about the outcome. Our injection specialists will be able to explain which filler will work best for you to achieve the best results.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
