Lip Enhancement

Whether your lips are naturally thin or they have experienced a loss of volume over the years, our lip rejuvenation treatment will give you the shapely, full and beautiful pout you’ve always wanted. 

Lip fillers are ideal for:
  • Adding volume to thin lips
  • Filling in the fine lines around your mouth
  • Accentuating the borders of your lips for a more defined look
  • Reducing the wrinkles in your lips
  • Adding balance to your face

Full, well-defined lips are considered a sign of good health, beauty and youth. Our skin care experts are dedicated to creating a personalized lip rejuvenation treatment plan which meets all your aesthetic needs and gently enhances the natural silhouette of your lips for subtle yet visible results.

Lip fillers are made from a natural, biocompatible material which act as a fat substitute to add volume to your lips. The lip injection is an ultra-fine needle which consists of a clear gel that is inserted under the skin. This gel fills in any lip lines or wrinkles as well as plumps up desired areas while the hyaluronic acid within it attracts and retains moisture, giving you long lasting results.

Benefits of Lip Rejuvenation
  • Instant results
  • Quick treatment and recovery time
  • Some lip injections are temporary and can be modified to fit your aesthetic goals
  • Gives your lips a natural look and feel
  • No chance of rejection because they are made from biocompatible material.

At Okanagan Skin Care Centre, we offer our patients a range of lip fillers including JUVÉDERM®, Emervel, Belotero and Restylane® which are FDA-approved lip fillers and hyaluronic-acid based, so are natural and safe to use by our trained healthcare professionals.

Duration: Depending on the type of lip filler you choose and on the size and condition of the area being treated, lip rejuvenation therapy is typically 30 minutes long.

Number of treatments: Because the effects of the lip fillers are not permanent, a treatment is required every 6-9 months to maintain that well-defined, voluminous shape.

Results: You can expect possible swelling and bruising after the procedure, but the majority of our patients see visible changes immediately within 14 days of the treatment. As the lip filler integrates into the body, you will notice continued improvements for results that can last up to 1 year.

Based on your aesthetic goals and physical characteristics, our skin care specialists will be able to make recommendations on which treatment type is ideal for your particular needs and situation, ensuring a successful, long-lasting outcome.

Lip Enhancement FAQ

How do lip fillers work?

Through the use of an ultra-fine lip injection, one of our skin care professionals will insert the clear filler gel underneath your skin, into the deep dermis. This gel works to add volume and fill in any lip lines or wrinkles for a smoother, plumper and younger looking mouth.

Do lip injections hurt?

Lip rejuvenation is mostly pain free. However, to minimize any discomfort, the area of your face which is being treated will be numbed using a topical anesthetic cream before the lip injection is administered.

What can I do to prepare for my lip filler procedure?

Before a lip injection, you must avoid alcohol and stop taking any blood-thinning medication. This includes aspirin, ibuprofen and any other type of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs as well as Vitamin E. If you have suffered from facial sores in the past, talk to one of our trained practitioners as they may be able to prescribe a medication that can minimize recurrence.

What can I expect after my lip filler procedure?

After treatment you may have some swelling, redness, bruising or tenderness. These symptoms are typical but usually mild in severity and normally last for less than 14 days. Avoid exposure to intense heat, taking aspirin, medications such as ibuprofen, high doses of vitamin E or St. John’s wort for 1 week. As the filler is naturally absorbed into your body, you will begin to notice visible results which you can enjoy for 6-12 months.
