More and more men and women are asking for fuller lips at our Kirkland practice. Patients come in wondering if our Northwest Face & Body’s aesthetic specialists have a solution to thin lips. Fortunately, we do! With the help of injectable dermal facial fillers, we are able to give you the lusciously full lips you crave.

Who Is Lip Augmentation For?

Injectable lip augmentation is ideal for patients who are unhappy with the size of their lips. Dermal fillers are able to create a natural fullness to your lips whether you currently have thin lips, if your lips are smaller than you would like them to be, or if your lips have lost their fullness as you have aged. Good candidates for injectable lip augmentation struggle with:

  • Thin, small, and skinny lips
  • Loss of volume
  • Uneven lips
  • Fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth (known as smoker’s lines)

How Is Lip Augmentation Performed?

Northwest Face & Body’s team of professional nurse injectors are careful to make your treatment as enjoyable as possible. You will first meet with a member our team to discuss your goals and what enhancement you hope to achieve. Although a number of injectables can be used to augment the lips, we have had the best results using hyaluronic fillers—like Juvéderm® or Restylane®—as it most closely mimics the natural look and feel of lip tissue.To manage any discomfort, we will start by gently numbing the lips using a topical anesthetic before placing a series of injections along your lips. Although your lips may experience some swelling over the next day or two, downtime is minimal and you are quickly able to return to your day-to-day activities.

What Your Lips Look Like Following Lip Augmentation at Northwest Face & Body

Our goal at Northwest Face & Body is to enhance the natural shape of your lips by adding a flattering fullness to your pout. With extensive experience performing lip injections, we are able to design a treatment that addresses your lip enhancement goals. More than volume alone, a more voluminous pout can bring balance and beauty to your entire face.Don’t let your thin lips get you down! A fuller pout can be yours by scheduling a consultation at Kirkland’s very own Northwest Face & Body.
