Lip Filler Miami

The pouty and bee-stung lips are so in demand these days. Today, it is possible to completely change the size and shape of lips with fillers. Whether you are born with thin lips or lost volume due to aging, you can regain beauty with dermal fillers.

Our appearance plays a vital role in our daily lives, and it is often associated with how people treat us. The better we look, the more we feel confident among people. There are several types of dermal fillers used to enhance lips. They balance your facial features, correct asymmetry, increase volume, and create a perky cupid bow. In short, they make you feel fantastic about yourself.

What are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers are injectables containing filler material imbued into one or both lips with a very fine needle. The common lip fillers include hyaluronic acid, fat, or collagen. Among these, hyaluronic acid is the most suitable ingredient because it is a naturally occurring substance in our body that helps retain moisture and keep our skin healthy and plump. Lip fillers are safe with a little downtime and a few side effects.

Types of Lip Fillers

  • Juvederm- It is a hyaluronic acid-based, FDA-Approved dermal filler that is used to increase the volume of lips and cheeks. It has a smooth gel formula that moves easily and plumps up the lips. Juvederm is available in different types, including Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC specially formulated to enhance lips. The results are quick and last for up to 12 months.
  • Restylane- Restylane is another Hyaluronic acid filler used to plump up cheeks lips and fade fine lines and wrinkles. Unlike the Juvederm, it has a firmer consistency and remains rigid at the injection site. RESTYLANE® DEFYNE, REFYNE, and Restylane® Kysse have been specifically formulated for lip enhancement. Like the Juvederm, the results are instant and last for about 10 months.
  • Volbella- Volbella is a perfect injectable for smoothening out the small fine lines and enhancing lips. The small particle size of Hyaluronic acid in the filler plumps up your lips without giving a bulky or puffy appearance. You can expect the results to last for 12 months.
  • Vollure- Vollure is different from the rest of the Juvederm fillers in malleability. It is a smooth product that provides a softer result. Vollure is also used to correct the fine lines. After the treatment, it shows less swelling and creates subtler and less plumping effects lasting almost a year.

How Do Lip Fillers Work?

It is a single appointment treatment. First, consult an injectable expert to evaluate your lips and expectations. It will help you choose the best option. At James Christian Cosmetics, we provide a free consultation to craft a custom treatment plan according to your needs and specific budget. We feel pride in answering every question to our patients.

On appointment day, the consultant will clean your lips and apply a numbing cream. Though it is not a painful procedure, a numbing cream is used to minimize discomfort. Then, he will inject the filler into your lips, following the shape you requested. The whole process will take 15-30 minutes. Once done, you will get to see the improvement instantly. Mild swelling is expected that subsides within a few days.

Benefits Of Lip Fillers

  • Natural Fulness
    The hyaluronic acid-based fillers provide natural fulness to your lips. Since the human body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, it is less likely to cause bruising. In addition, the fillers get absorbed naturally and provide plumpness, lasting for a minimum of 6-8 months.
  • No Side Effects
    Side Effects are infrequent with hyaluronic acid-based fillers. However, it is vital to discuss your existing allergies and medications with the physician at the consultation so you can choose a suitable filler for your lips.

  • Boosts Self-Confidence
    Lip fillers improve your overall appearance and make you look and feel younger. People who are not happy with their facial features simply feel better and more confident having lip fillers. Makeup tips and tricks provide subtle short-term results while lip fillers enhance your lips for long.
  • Enhances Collagen Production
    Collagen is the protein responsible for skin tightening. Its level falls with age. Several environmental factors, poor diet, and unhealthy lifestyle promote its depletion. It results in wrinkles and sagging skin. Lip injections stimulate the production of collagen protein that can enhance and prolong the effects of lip fillers.
  • Customized Results
    A great benefit of lip fillers is that you can customize the treatment based on your specific needs. For example, if you want to plump up or redefine the lower lip or add volume to a particular lip area, you can discuss it prior with an injectable expert. Always choose a trained and professional injector to get the best results.

Ideal Candidates for Lip Fillers

Anyone in good health over the age of 21 can go for lip fillers. It is safe and effective for almost every patient, but if you have already had extensive lip enhancement via surgical or non-surgical procedures, you must talk to the physician to determine whether the treatment is fine for you.

People suffering from Oral Herpes, Diabetes, Lupus, and Blood clotting problems are not good candidates for lip fillers. You should inform the doctor if you take any medication, over-the-counter drugs, or supplements.

Results are Reversible

You do need to get upset about the final result of lip filler because it is entirely reversible. Hyaluronic acid can be broken down by an enzyme called hyaluronidase. This means if you think that the new shape and size of lips are not complementing your overall appearance, you can reverse the results. So, you get greater peace of mind with lip fillers

Cost of Lip Fillers

The cost of lip fillers depends upon the type of filler used, the quantity of the filler, and the clinic's reputation. However, the total cost usually ranges from $500-$1500. At James Christian Cosmetics, we offer three packages with different styles, including West Coast Style, East Coast Style, and Russian Lips. We charge for West Coast Style and Russian Lips $799/cc each and East Coast Style 699/cc. Moreover, you can come for a free consultation and design a treatment plan according to your needs and budget.

Importance of a Professional for Providing Lip Fillers

The most important decision you make when considering lip fillers is who will perform the service. Always make sure that the clinic you have chosen has a good reputation, and the injector is certified in cosmetic surgery. At James Christian Cosmetics, we have a team of experts who have years of experience performing injectable procedures. Our Founder, James Christian Sardelli, is a Registered Physician Assistant-Certified (RPA-C). He has over 10 years of experience in the Industry where his skill and artistry in aesthetics are renowned.

Lip Fillers VS Fat Injections

Fat injections are also used to improve lips' size, texture, and symmetry. The healthcare specialist takes fat cells from the patient's buttocks, abdomen, or thighs and, after processing them, injects them into lips to give a fuller appearance. It takes weeks to recover from the fat transfer, and bruising, swelling, stiffness, or chapped lips are common after-effects.

Fat injections results are permanent but can cause lumpiness, and you need a minimum of 3 sessions to get the desired look. In contrast, Lip fillers are completely safe and do not cause any lumpiness. In addition, swelling resolves in a few days, and only one session is enough to get pouty lips.

Lip Fillers VS Lip Implants

Lip implants involve using soft, pliable silicon rubber or a biodegradable substance inserted in the corners of the mouth. The results last for many years and are ineffective for smoothing fine lip lines. In addition, this treatment comes with the risk of infection and bleeding. Whereas lip fillers last for about 6-8 months, there is no risk of adverse reaction, and you have a choice to experiment with a new look at every session.
