Before & afters
What are Lip Fillers?
Lip Fillers treatments may be performed with only one formula, multiple formulas, or along with other noninvasive procedures to achieve your needs and cosmetic goals. Lip Fillers dermal fillers are formulated with synthetic HA (hyaluronic acid) that is meant to increase your natural levels of collagen and HA for healthy, supple skin. Talk to plastic surgeon Dr. Chris Costa about refreshing your complexion without the recovery time and expense of plastic surgery using the Lip Fillers collection of injectable dermal fillers.
Lip Fillers Vollure softens medium or deep wrinkles and lines throughout the face, like nasolabial folds and other lines around the nose and mouth. The results on average are visible for about a year.
Lip Fillers Volbella adds shape to the lower lip, upper lip, or the entire mouth while also correcting the look of fine, vertical lines in the lips. The improvements usually can be seen for up to a year.

What to Expect on the Day of Lip Fillers
Lip Fillers treatments generally only last around 15 – 30 minutes, based on which areas are being corrected. Your skin will be cleaned, then the injection sites will be selected. To reduce discomfort throughout the process, Lip Fillers and dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic. Following your procedure, you are allowed to go back to your daily routine; however, strenuous activity, including exercise, should be skipped for at least a day. You need to be cautious to not put your hands on your face immediately after your treatment to prevent massaging the gel into other areas.
Lip Fillers Recovery
You can typically see a visible enhancement immediately following your Lip Fillers procedure, but you could also develop light bruising or swelling in the injected areas of the face for approximately 7 – 10 days. The results of Lip Fillers dermal fillers typically are visible for as long as a year; several patients notice that their improvements last over a year after multiple years of injections. Talk to Dr. Costa about how soon to schedule your next session at Platinum Plastic Surgery to keep your results.

Lip Fillers FAQs
How long after Lip Fillers can I wear lipstick?
When you receive Lip Fillers, you may feel slightly tender on your lips, so for your comfort, we advise that you avoid applying makeup to your lips at least a day after your treatment.
Can I smoke after Lip Fillers?
Smoking after receiving lip fillers will not affect the outcome of your treatment. Smoking is known to dry out the skin and can be linked to premature aging, so we do advise that your refrain from smoking immediately post-procedure.
Are Lip Fillers painful?
No. Some patients may experience slight discomfort, however, it is usually a very mild discomfort. Dr. Costa can apply a local anesthetic to any patient who may be particularly anxious about their Lip Filler injection.
How many appointments will I need?
The average Lip Filler lasts between six and eight months, so if you are as satisfied with your appearance, you will need to return for additional lip fillers after this period. Otherwise, you are free to let your lips return to their previous appearance with no issues.
How long until I see results?
It may take a day or 2 to allow your lips to fully adjust to the injectables, however, you should be able to notice a difference immediately following your appointment.
