Orchidia MedSpa offers lip augmentation, a cosmetic procedure that helps to define, increase fullness, and plump up your lips. Dr Young and Dr. Cuberos use Hyaluronic acid to increase the volume on the lips (Restylane), use PDO threads to define the lip, and Exilis Ultra to improve the collagen formation on the lips and the surrounding tissue.
Who is the right candidate for this procedure?
Anyone that wants a change in the appearance of their lips. This procedure can be done at early age in the 20’s for a fuller effect on the lips, or in patients that have had volume loss with age.
How long does the procedure takes?
The procedure takes less than 1 hour. The Doctor will apply topical anesthesia first to decrease the discomfort and then the filler will be applied inside the lips to increase the size and the fullness.
How long does the procedure last?
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid that lasts at least 6 months. The amount required depends on the volume that the patient desires. Most patients require one syringe of Hyaluronic acid.
How long does it take to recovery from the procedure?
There is mild swelling after the procedure that usually lasts 24 to 48 hours. These can be minimized with the application of ice immediately after the procedure.
