What is Lip Enhancement?

One of the areas in which a youthful appearance begins to fade is in (and around) the lips. Sagging skin, the loss of collagen, and frown lines can result in a tired look that ages the face. At Beautify at AMS, we use injectables such as Restylane®, Juvéderm®, and fat transfer, as well as the laser treatment ClearLift™ to address these issues and achieve fuller, more sensuous lips.

How Do

Lip Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvéderm make excellent lip fillers because they’re made with hyaluronic acid—a natural moisturizing protein that makes the skin plumper and more hydrated. When injected into the lips, dermal fillers have the ability to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around and on the lips, as well as creating an improved structure and plumpness in the lips.

What is Fat Transfer for Lips?

Another filler that is excellent for the lips is your very own fat. When this method is used, fat is removed from an area of the body where it’s not wanted, such as the stomach, thighs, or buttocks. The fat is removed with liposuction, purified, and then injected into the lips for a very natural-looking, soft result—with no risk of an allergic reaction, as it’s from your very own body. 

What is ClearLift?

ClearLift is a subtle, laser-based lip enhancement procedure designed to make the lips fuller, more colorful, and more proportionate. Tiny, non-ablative lasers deeply penetrate and stimulate the tissue of the lips to improve color, natural volume, smoothness, and definition. The treatment is so gentle that no numbing agent is needed. We recommend multiple ClearLift sessions over the course of several weeks for optimal results.

Patient Review

I was so nervous because I wanted to still look natural, and I’ve seen so many lips look awful. I was also afraid it would hurt. But I had nothing to be afraid of! I didn’t feel a thing! Zero pain! And they look completely natural! Only my close friends can tell something is different. After my lip enhancement, I get so many compliments daily and I have never felt so confident. I will never go back to my sad lips now. I’m obsessed and over the moon happy with my results! I highly recommend everyone in Chicago go see Dr. Bayran.

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

Our lip augmentation in Chicago takes just minutes to complete, and you will leave our office with little to no bruising or swelling. Some patients prefer to be numbed and will be given a local anesthetic before the injections. The injections will be administered and then the area may possibly be massaged in order to smooth out the filler and ensure it’s been properly dispersed.

What Are the Recovery and Results Like?

Some patients experience bruising, swelling, numbness, and/or mild discomfort at the injection sites for 1-3 days after receiving lip fillers. We recommend limiting movement of the area as much as possible during recovery. Do not exercise for 24 hours following treatment, and avoid any activity that increases blood flow to the face. Results typically last for anywhere from 3-12 months, depending on the type of filler used.

Does lip filler dissolve?

For those considering dermal lip fillers at Chicago's Beautify at AMS, it’s important to understand that they are temporary. Hyaluronic acid lip filler will dissolve after 3-12 months, and you will need maintenance treatments to keep your results. Fat transfer is a more permanent option, although this procedure may also require touch-ups.

How should I prepare for my lip augmentation?

To help with bruising and bleeding, we recommend that you refrain from consuming any type of blood thinners for two weeks before your lip enhancement appointment. Blood thinners include aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil, St. John’s wort, vitamin E, and alcohol.

How old do you have to be to get lip fillers in Illinois?

You must be at least 18 years old to get lip fillers.

Can you feel lip fillers when kissing?

Your lips will feel as soft and natural as they usually would, which means fillers can’t be detected by another person when you’re kissing, nor will you be able to feel them.

Do lips feel different after fillers?

Lip fillers mimic the texture of your natural lips, but for the first couple of days after the treatment, your lips will feel lumpy and different as they adjust. From there, as time passes, your lips will feel more and more natural.
