Lip Filler Treatments

Welcome to PFRANKMD by Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank, where we offer the doctor’s signature lip filler treatments. The treatments are ideal for patients who desire a more prominent appearance of contours and fullness to their lips that looks natural and blends with their overall facial characteristics. The superior results of Dr. Frank’s lip filler treatments are achieved through his wealth of experience and expert product knowledge honed over twenty-plus years and tens of thousands of cosmetic filler procedures.

How Do Lip Filler Treatments Work?

During lip filler treatments injections of cosmetic dermal fillers are strategically administered to correct minor asymmetries, add volume, and accentuate natural contours and shape instantly. The various types of cosmetic fillers used such as Restylane, Juvéderm, or Radiesse are formulated to replicate and stimulate naturally occurring substances and cellular functions that sustain hydration and produce collagen, and elastin in skin cells and sub-dermal layers of skin tissue.

The different formulations of cosmetic fillers are all designed to instantly add volume to areas with thinner density but feature different characteristics of how long the effects last, treatment reversibility, firmer or softer structured filling, and bio-stimulatory effects that continue to gradually increase volume for weeks after treatment. Dr. Frank customizes the choice of filler for every patient and each treatment session.

Candidates for Lip Filler Treatments

The ideal candidate for a signature lip filler treatment at PFRANKMD is in good general health and seeking a natural-looking accentuation of shape and fullness of their lips. To ensure patients achieve a satisfying result, they must have realistic expectations that align with their unique lip and facial characteristics and the potential and limitations of cosmetic fillers.

A comprehensive consultation will ensure safe compatibility and the patient’s understanding of the entire process and the details of their proposed treatment plan. The doctor often recommends a dynamic or staggered method that calls for smaller increments of filler injected during more than one session.

By opting for this approach, the patient and Dr. Frank can work together to achieve the desired lip enhancement gradually while minimizing the risk of overfilling or creating an unnatural appearance. Patients who are unhappy with the results of previous cosmetic lip filler treatments should consult Dr. Frank; his expertise extends to hyaluronidase lip filler revision treatments.

The Lip Filler Procedure

Dr. Frank performs lip filler treatments in our offices, and they are usually completed in under an hour. The injections of cosmetic filler are not considered painful, and a topical solution that disinfects and numbs the area is used for additional comfort. When the treatment areas are numbed the doctor will strategically administer the filler injections pausing in between to evaluate the emerging results.

Recovery and Results

During the recovery period following a lip filler procedure, patients can immediately resume activities without downtime. Aftercare instructions to avoid strenuous physical activity, excessive heat, sun exposure, and pressure in the treated areas for 24 to 48 hours are recommended. Following aftercare instructions will minimize the duration of any mild swelling or redness that may occur and ensure proper settlement of the filler.

The duration of effects that are achieved with each lip filler treatment will vary depending on the choice of filler and unique patient factors of skin density, the existing lip shape and fullness at the starting point, and the progression of results. Cosmetic fillers that are formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA) such as Restylane and Juvéderm last six to twelve months and provide softer filling that is reversible.

Radiesse cosmetic filler is composed of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHa) microspheres suspended in a gel carrier that can last twelve to eighteen months as it is designed for a more structured filling. The bio-stimulating formula of Radiesse increases collagen and elastin production for a smoother surface texture.

How are the Results from Cosmetic Dermal Fillers Reversed?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm can be dissolved with injections of an enzyme called hyaluronidase. Experience in the reversal process is essential to avoid sudden drastic changes and dissolving hyaluronic acid beyond the cosmetic filler.

Can Lip Filler Treatments be Combined with Other Cosmetic Procedures?

Yes, lip filler treatments are compatible with other cosmetic procedures. Dr. Frank or a PFRANKMD team member will be happy to provide more specific information on combining treatments.

Are Lip Filler Treatments Suitable for All Skin Tones?

Yes, individuals with light, medium, or darker skin tones may be candidates for lip filler treatments, but the correct choice of filler is essential, as different skin tones can further highlight or diminish the visible results.

If I Stop Receiving Lip Filler Treatments what happens?

If you stop lip filler treatments, the effects of the fillers will gradually diminish allowing for a subtle transition back to your baseline.

Can Lip Filler Treatments Improve Symmetry?

Lip filler treatments can help improve lip symmetry to a certain extent, depending on the cause and extent of the asymmetry.
