Lip Augmentation


Full, shapely lips add a youthful and feminine appeal to the face. Cosmetically enhancing the lips can have a huge impact on overall facial appeal.

With dermal fillers, it takes only moments to enhance and augment the lips – but it must be performed with meticulous care, and the exact quantity of filler to produce the perfect look. At Skin Deep MD, we perform dermal filler lip injections in Boulder in a safe, minimally-invasive procedure with little to no downtime.

All lip augmentation procedures are performed under the supervision of one of Boulder’s most respected physicians, Dr. Melody Denham.


Why Have Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation?

Like the rest of the face, the lips start to show the signs of age as the years pass. Loss of volume in the lips is inevitable with natural fat depletion and collagen breakdown. The lips become thinner with aging, and vertical lines can form around the mouth. Many younger people inherited thinner lips and want a plumper, more alluring look. Come to Skin Deep MD for customized lip enhancement, performed by an aesthetic injector with experience and artistic talent in performing the procedure.

Dermal fillers are a quick, “lunchtime procedure” with virtually no side effects. It is a safe, effective way to correct asymmetry, improve or enhance shape, and add volume and plumpness to the lips in a custom treatment. Juvéderm Volbella is an advanced dermal filler specifically tailored for adding subtle volume to the lips and smoothing vertical lip lines.


What Can I Expect with Dermal Filler Lip Augmentation?

Your first step is to schedule a consultation at our Skin Deep MD in Boulder, where we focus on creating superior outcomes in lip augmentation. After a discussion of your medical history and aesthetic goals and a careful evaluation of your lip structure, we plan the injection sites to add plumpness to upper lip, lower lip, or both, or to the cupid’s bow to bring definition and allure.

Most lip augmentation sessions are completed in less than an hour. Before the procedure, we will apply a topical numbing cream that takes effect in five to ten minutes. Juvéderm and Restylane lip fillers contain lidocaine, an injectable local anesthetic, for a more comfortable treatment experience.


What Will I Look Like Immediately after Lip Augmentation Injections?

We employ superior injection techniques to help avoid any swelling and bruising. Nevertheless, you can expect some swelling immediately after treatment. After a few days, the swelling will subside, and your final results are revealed: plump, youthful lips, at last.


How Long Will My Lip Augmentation Results Last?

Most of the latest generation of lip fillers are formulated with hyaluronic acid, a substance occurring naturally in the skin. Hyaluronic acid attracts and retains moisture, adding volume and softness, which makes it an ideal substance for injectable fillers. As a natural substance, hyaluronic acid eventually breaks down and is absorbed by the body, so retreatment will eventually be needed to maintain the soft, plump look.

How long your results last with dermal filler lip augmentation can depend on several factors, including what type of filler is used in the procedure: For example, Juvéderm Volbella and Juvéderm Ultra XC have been proven to last up to one year. A clinical study has shown that patients report 77% visible improvement in lip fullness six months after treatment with Restylane Silk.


What Are the Benefits of Lip Augmentation with Dermal Fillers?

Lip augmentation with dermal fillers is a popular, minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), more than two million procedures with hyaluronic acid soft tissue fillers, such as Juvéderm and Restylane, were performed in the U.S. in a recent year. The results achieved are simply gorgeous when lip augmentation is performed correctly.

The benefits of injectable lip fillers to plump lips at Skin Deep MD in Boulder include:

  • Fuller, shapelier, more youthful- looking lips
  • Smoothing of vertical lip lines around the mouth
  • Quick, minimally-invasive “lunch hour” procedure
  • Safe treatment with minimal side effects and recovery
  • Visible results in a few days after treatment
  • Long-lasting results with advanced dermal fillers
  • Hyaluronic acid fillers add moisture and softness while plumping the lips

If your lips and mouth are showing the signs of aging, lip augmentation with injectable fillers may be a good option for you. This treatment can give you fuller, poutier, younger-looking lips without undergoing surgery. The results can be a significant enhancement to your overall look and takes only minutes to complete.
