Your lips are not immune from aging
Beautiful lips within minutes
It's essential to be aware that lip filler is a medical treatment that an expert nurse injector or board-certified plastic surgeon should only perform.
Although this procedure is low risk when performed by an experienced practitioner, severe and sometimes permanent complications can occur when an inexperienced or untrained injector performs lip filler injections. Therefore, this procedure should only be performed at an accredited medical facility by experienced injectors, overseen directly by a physician.
Many different lip filler products are available today, and New Age Medical Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery only uses safe, top-rated, and long-acting hyaluronic acid products. These include options offered by Restylane and Juvederm.
Hyaluronic acid is a synthetic form of a naturally-occurring substance that provides volume, hydration, and flexibility to the skin. Hyaluronic acid lip fillers are temporary, and touch-up treatments need to be repeated every 12 to 18 months.

An overfilled, duck-like appearance is to be avoided at all costs. Our injectors specialize in Natural lip filler results.
Topical anesthetic is used prior to lip filler injections, and hyaluronic acid products often include a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Icing before and after is essential to prevent swelling and tenderness. Your injector may use either a needle or cannula to deliver the filler product.
Many lip filler patients get neuromodulator injections such as Botox or Dysport at the same time as their lip filler injections. Botox can extend the filler result's duration and treat fine lines around the mouth when combined with lip filler.
