Cosmetic procedures are an excellent way to enhance, rejuvenate, and augment features on the face and body.
These procedures can range from in-depth surgical treatments to minimally-invasive, non-surgical solutions.
Some of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures among residents of Vancouver are injectable fillers. These versatile treatments can help target various areas on the face to help reduce wrinkles, enhance features, and fill out sunken areas or furrows in the skin.
One up-and-coming filler treatment targets the lips, helping to enhance fullness, correct asymmetry, and accentuate the cupid’s bow. When administered by an expert injector, lip fillers can give your lips a more flattering and enhanced contour. This procedure has found itself to be especially popular among younger patients who are seeking a fuller, more feminine pout to help accentuate their facial features.
Lip fillers are a cosmetic enhancement treatment intended to help augment or enhance the shape, size, or overall contour of the lips and the surrounding area. Most commonly, this is achieved through injectables using ingredients like hyaluronic acid. Collagen can also be used to help plump up the lips, as well as fat transfer or silicone implants.
Lip fillers are an excellent solution for patients who have naturally thin or lackluster lips and can be especially popular among women in their 20s and 30s. They can also be used as an anti-aging treatment, helping to fill out thinning lips and reduce the appearance of lipstick lines or small wrinkles around the mouth.

A fuller, more defined set of lips can help to bring out your features and enhance your overall facial profile. There are many ways to achieve this, such as through surgical implants or procedures, such as fat transfer. Lip fillers are another excellent option, which can be customized to suit each patient’s need individually with little side effects or downtime. Some of these benefits include:
When considering any cosmetic enhancement, it is good practice to sit down with either of our experienced injectors Sharla or Lily at our facility in Vancouver. Together, you can discuss if lip fillers are a viable option for you.
Ideal candidates for lip augmentation with fillers include men and women who are in good general health and have a realistic understanding of the results. For Juvéderm® injections, patients in Vancouver must be at least 21 years old.
The main ingredient in Juvéderm® fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA), a protein found within the skin. The HA helps to draw in much-needed moisture and kick-starts the body’s production of collagen. This process allows the skin to plump over time and delivers natural-looking results that continue to improve. Patients typically start to see results within the first few days to the first two weeks after the procedure. Your lips will gradually continue to fill after your treatment.
The Juvéderm® line of fillers offers various options to help enhance facial features differently. The results will vary and last depending on the type of filler, treatment target, and the patient’s natural healing process. Juvéderm® Ultra XC, can last for around six and twelve months before patients should consider scheduling a follow-up treatment.
Absolutely! Lip fillers are a versatile treatment option that can be combined with various other fillers, including different Juvéderm® products, as well as cosmetic treatments such as plastic surgery. Some patients opt to combine lip fillers with other augmentations to help achieve a fuller contour from the lips to the body.
