Full and healthy appearing lips are a sign of youth and beauty. During the aging process, the volume of the lips diminish and the texture of the tissue surrounding the lips ages. This can lead to thin lips with fine wrinkles. In addition, the corners of the lips can descend to produce an angry or sad appearance. With the use of dermal fillers (Restylane® and Juvederm®), neuromodulators (Botox® and Dysport®), and lasers the lips can be rejuvenated. At Gerson Zatezalo Skin + Face, we augment lips to produce a natural rejuvenated appearance to avoid the overfilled look. All injections at Gerson Zatezalo Skin + Face are only performed by Dr. Gerson or Dr. Zatezalo. Lip augmentation is performed with topical or local anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. The effects of lip augmentation with dermal filler can last anywhere from 9 to 12 months or longer, however the neuromodulator effect will diminish in approximately 3-4 months.
