Lip Augmentation: A Step-by-Step Guide to Your Treatment

kissable lips with lip augmentation

When you picture a movie star leaning in to kiss his or her perfect companion, you usually imagine plush, red lips coming together for that Hollywood moment. If you weren't genetically blessed with full lips or if the natural aging process has caused your lips to thin out, there is still hope that you can have one of those picture-perfect kisses of your own. With one of our options for lip augmentation, Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center can help you get the luscious lips you’ve always dreamed of.

What to Expect at Your Lip Augmentation Appointment

Have a Pre-augmentation Consultation

If you're considering a lip augmentation, sit down with one of our aesthetic injection specialists to determine the best product and procedure for your lips. We offer both Juvederm and Restylane Silk hyaluronic acid fillers for lip augmentation in our Beverly Hills medical spa and can help you in choosing which of these popular dermal fillers is right for you.

Our aesthetic injection specialists can help you determine how much fuller you want to see your lips. By evaluating your ideal look and your current lip size, you and our team will put together a plan tailored to your needs and desires.

Prepare Before Your Lip Augmentation Treatment

Your body must be ready to meet your new, fabulous lips. Because you'll be receiving injections directly into your face and lips, avoid using nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen, aspirin and forms of Vitamin E supplements. The use of these common medications can cause a reaction at your injection sites that you can easily prevent.

Throw away those cigarettes and pick up your water bottle at least six weeks prior to your procedure to promote health and faster healing afterward. Avoid alcoholic beverages for a few days prior to treatment as well, as alcohol acts as a blood thinner and can increase swelling and bruising. You want your post-treatment lips to look luscious and full, and good health habits are your ticket to youth and beauty.

Your Lip Augmentation Treatment

The lip augmentation treatment will be performed in our Beverly Hills medical spa quickly and efficiently, and we'll have you on your way in no time!

Using a fine gauge needle, your licensed injection specialist will begin to administer the FDA approved lip filler. Each syringe contains lidocaine to numb the area during the procedure, providing you with pain relief and added comfort. With just one round of treatment and less than an hour in our office, you'll see fuller, more luscious lips that will last three to six months. We will work to schedule a follow-up appointment before you leave to ensure that you come in for touch-ups prior to your filler wearing off. This will help you maintain your results.

Relax After Treatment

After your lip augmentation treatment, stay out of the sun and tanning beds. Continue to avoid blood thinners like aspirin, Vitamin E and alcoholic beverages for a while to avoid bleeding, swelling and bruising. Stick to cold compresses at first to give your lips time to heal. In just a few days, you'll be enjoying your more luscious lips without any evidence of the augmentation. Then, you can spend all the time on the beach you want with your fuller smile.

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.
