Lip Fillers are an excellent option for anyone who wants to add more volume to their lips or wants to reduce the effects of aging around the lips. Lip fillers can balance the appearance of your lips and make them fuller, and can also give your lips a more youthful, defined appearance.

Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation with Dr. Wise
Dr. Wise offers a variety of fillers to enhance and augment the lips including Juvederm Ultra Plus,Juvederm Volbella, and Restylane Silk.These fillers consist of hyaluronic acid gel, a naturally occurring substance in the skin. They are considered finer, silkier fillers which are specifically designed to provide natural looking results. They contain no animal ingredients, are are FDA approved, and only available from a licensed physician. Lip injections are non-surgical procedures which can be done with just local anesthetic administered by Dr. Wise. Juvederm Ultra Plus is typically used when patients desire a deep filling effect, e.g. a patient with thin lips desires fuller lips. Juvederm Ultra Plus can last up around 6-9 months for the initial injection with longevity increasing with future treatments. Here’s a photo of a patient’s lips before and after Juvederm Ultra Plus injections:
Juvederm Volbella is an effective option for patients who want to address aging skin around their lips and add subtle volume (enhancing the vermillion border). This filler is typically used to smooth the appearance of vertical lips lines above the upper or below the lower lip. Juvederm Volbella is the longest lasting lip filler which can last up to one year.
Restylane Silk is another preferred lip filler by Dr. Wise to augment the lips and smooth wrinkles around the mouth. Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other products. Restylane can provide superior definition in the lips and typically lasts around 6-9 months.
Dr. Wise is an expert injector when it comes to lip treatments. For all lip injections, Dr. Wise can use the Cannula technique. The Cannula technique uses a blunt needle which minimizes the chances of bruising, swelling and excessive trauma during and after the procedure. While patients will still experience some swelling, it should subside within just a couple days..
After a simple procedure with Dr. Wise you will leave our office with plumper, fuller lips and will not have to rely on make-up and other short term options to enhance your lips. Check out this video of Dr. Wise performing a lip injection using the Cannula technique:
Want something more permanent? Consider PermaLip
Dr. Wise also offers PermaLip, a solid silicone lip implant that eliminates the need for you to come back for a new injection every year or two years. Permalip is tapered at its edges so it fits well with the shape of your lips and looks natural. The PermaLip insertion procedure can be done in the doctor’s office with only local anesthetic. Even though it is designed to be permanent, you can easily have PermaLip removed if you change your mind.
