About Lip Augmentation
Whether you were born with slim lips or you are noticing less fullness in your lips as you get older, nonsurgical lip augmentation may help create a full, well-shaped pout. Board-certified plastic surgeons Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas offer several injectable fillers that can temporarily volumize the mouth for a fuller look. If you are interested in learning more about nonsurgical augmentation, contact Allegro MedSpa of Novato in Novato, CA to schedule an initial consultation. Our aesthetic team will discuss your options and create your personal treatment plan for lip augmentation.
- Dermal Fillers
Injectable fillers, such as Restylane or Juvéderm, can add temporary volume to the mouth and decrease the visibility of fine lip lines.
"I get the Signature Peel with aesthetician Ashley and could not recommend her more highly. LOVE HER. She is so knowledgeable, sweet and calming...even though I’m getting a chemical peel she has me feel so relaxed like I’m getting a full massage. I’ve had peels at other high-end medspas but have never received better results than with Ashley. Based on her knowledge, skill and beautiful energy, I wholeheartedly give Ashley 5+ stars. She’s the best."- N.B. / Google / Jun 21, 2019
"My experience at Allegro MedSpa was wonderful! Kelsey performed my procedures that day and I could not have felt more reassured that I was making the right choices to meet my specific needs and desires. Her experience quelled any anxiety that crept up. I had complete peace trusting her suggestions and advice for not only treatment now but beneficial procedures in the future.😀Kelsey was patient, engaged, generous and made me feel like I was the most important person in her life for the time I was with her! I will absolutely be asking for Kelsey again in the future!"- J.D. / Google / Feb 20, 2020
"I was at Allegro for some voluma in my cheeks. Kelsey was great about discussing what I wanted and suggested additional juvederm for some areas that have been bothering me. I told her I bruise easily and she kept icing my face after each area was injected. I’ve never had anyone take such care to try to reduce bruising. My appointment was yesterday and yes I have bruising, but I can’t imagine how much worse I would look if Kelsey hadn’t taken such time and care with me. I can’t wait to see how great I look once this bruising goes away!Thank you Kelsey!"- S.K. / Google / Feb 20, 2020
"First let me say, absolutely amazing staff! I have been here twice, first time for a skin consultation and skin care routine. Came away with a skin care program that suited my needs as well as a friendly consultation that made me feel so comfortable. (I don't often go anywhere with out my make up on, but everyone made me feel "normal" and beautiful and accepted for me) My second time I visited the MedSpa, (along with my Aunt) I met with Kelsey! And let me say...loud and absolutely clear!.....She is truly awesome! Kind....gentle...down to Earth.....professional and very informative! This was my first time looking into any type of "refresher".....and so naturally I had some anxiety about what I should and shouldn't do. Kelsey, was sooooo patient and kind and helped me (and my Aunt) with my/our decisions...as well as what was appropriate for me and my needs. SO thankful for her advice and wisdom! Absolute hands down....I had such a wonderful experience! Thank you Allegro MedSpa!....Oh!..and the lovely girls at the desk?...All smiles and treated me like family. You guys made my nerves turn into excitement and joy! I will definitely be back again. Looking forward to it!"- S.J. / Google / Feb 13, 2020
"When treatment day arrived, I was a bit anxious as to what would actually happen and how it would feel. My pleasant surprise was that it went so smoothly with no discomfort. The staff were so pleasant and timed things so well that it felt more like a facial. The day after there was some tenderness in my neck but that had been the area of my most serious concern and needed most work. Other than tenderness there was no noticeable after effects and I wondered if it had worked at all. Much to my surprise 3 months later friends and family started noticing and commenting on my refreshed look. Up close I could see the noticeable effects and was so pleased. Be sure and use the right skin cream and you are set for the next year."- M.C. / Google / Jan 25, 2020
Lip Augmentation Ideal Candidates
Nonsurgical lip enhancement can give you more voluminous lips and a shapelier mouth. Based on your concerns and goals, we may make a recommendation on which filler may be the best option for you. Ideal candidates for lower and/or upper lip enhancement at Allegro MedSpa of Novato:
- Have thin lips naturally or have age-related volume loss in the lips
- Have asymmetrical or uneven lips
- Want to improve the entire face
- Have good health
Lip Augmentation Procedure Technique
Minimally invasive lip enhancement may be achieved with dermal fillers, such as Restylane or Juvéderm. Injections can be done in one of our treatment rooms as an outpatient procedure. Based on the brand of the dermal filler selected, a local anesthetic may be part of the formula or else a numbing cream may be applied on the treated area. Once your lips are cleaned, multiple injections will be administered in the selected areas, and then the filler will be massaged to give better results. You will be allowed to leave immediately after your treatment to continue your regular routine.
What to Expect with Lip Augmentation
It is important to pay attention to the recovery instructions given by our office to have faster healing and the best results. After a lip enhancement, your mouth will most likely feel tender or sore for several days. Cold packs and nonprescription pain relievers are suggested to address any swelling and discomfort. The improvements from nonsurgical lip augmentation may be visible for about 3 – 12 months based on the brand selected for your procedure. Talk to our aesthetic team about maintenance sessions to freshen up your lips.
Lip Augmentation Frequently Asked Questions
How much does lip augmentation cost?
Your cost for augmentation will vary based on the type of dermal filler used. In your consultation, we will develop your treatment plan before discussing your costs. Allegro MedSpa of Novato takes several payment methods, and we can help you locate low-interest financing to make your procedure easier to afford.
Can I get the lips of a specific celebrity?
You might come in and request the specific lips of an actor or actress. Having pictures of lips you want will help us understand your goals; however, it can be unrealistic to create the lips of someone else. In your first appointment, we will listen to your wants before talking about your choices (implants, dermal fillers, or a fat transfer) to augment your lips. After that, we will create your personal treatment plan.
Is lip augmentation reversible?
Since dermal fillers are temporary, you can elect to maintain your results prior to lip augmentation by discontinuing treatments. For dermal fillers, the formula will eventually absorb into your body so your lips will return to their normal appearance.
