Lip Filler in Ottawa

Full, well-defined lips are a sign of beauty and youthfulness. It's no surprise that lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid injectable fillers is among the most popular non-surgical aesthetic treatments performed today.

Your lips are not immune from aging

The lips are not immune from aging, and several predictable changes can occur over time. The lips lose volume, which can make them appear thin. The lower lip rolls inward, the corners of the lips begin to point downwards, and creases around the mouth can develop and deepen. Aging changes in the cheeks and jaw may also accentuate these effects in the lips.

Beautiful lips within minutes

Fortunately, lip fillers are an excellent tool to powerfully reverse these changes and produce rejuvenated, 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.

Lip filler treatments

Lip filler treatments depend on the patient's aesthetic goals and unique anatomy. Typical treatment goals include:
  • Increasing lip volume.
  • Optimizing the relationship between the upper and lower lips.
  • Restoring symmetry.
  • Creating more definition.
  • Addressing any nearby creases or fine lines.

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.

After lip filler injections

After lip filler injections, mild swelling and bruising can resolve in 1 to 2 days.
There may also be subtle swelling present up to 2 weeks after injections. Your injector may want to see you at the 1 to 2-week mark after lip filler injections to see if there is any role for touch-ups.

preparing for your lip filler appointment

To prepare for your lip filler appointment, our staff will discuss medications that need to be avoided.

These include certain herbal supplements, blood thinners, or other medications that can lead to bruising.

You cannot undergo lip filler treatment if you have active cold sores. You may be required to start an anti-viral before lip fillers if you have a history of cold sores. Pregnant or breast-feeding women also cannot undergo lip fillers.
