What is Lip Augmentation?
At Aesthetic Surgery of Charlotte lip fillers are a groundbreaking approach to enhancing the size and shape of your lips through a minimally invasive treatment that is safe and effective for most individuals. The dermal tissues in your lips produce less collagen as time passes, leading to thinner and less defined lips.
Lip Injectables We Use
With lip fillers Charlotte patients can achieve the volume and shape they’ve always wanted in just a few minutes, with no recovery or downtime. It is among the most popular cosmetic procedures, both in the United States and the world, with millions of patients receiving lip injections each year in the U.S. alone. While there are many lip fillers for patients to choose from, those containing hyaluronic acid are now among the most popular options due to the fact that hyaluronic acid is a substance that naturally occurs in the body, helping skin retain its volume, elasticity, and youthfulness. Popular fillers administered via lip injections at Aesthetic Surgery of Charlotte include:
Hyaluronic acid (HA) occurs naturally in the body. It works to maintain volume and softness in tissue mass like lips and other facial areas. These FDA-approved HA lip fillers are mixed with lidocaine to minimize discomfort during treatment. The effects of these products last from 6 to 12 months until the body gradually absorbs the products. These products have a soft gel-like consistency and are easily applied. These in-office injections restore volume that has been lost through aging or other factors. As we begin to lose collagen and elastin as early as 25 years old, HA dermal fillers are a great way to supplement the body’s natural function.
Be aware that these are completely different products from other nerve-relaxing treatments. Restalyne and Juvéderm add volume whereas certain other products relax muscles that can cause wrinkles. The two work in completely different ways. Be aware that it is possible to use them in conjunction with each other for even more dramatic results so ask us during your consultation.
If you're seeking to revitalize facial contours and reduce signs of aging, Juvéderm is an ideal choice. This FDA-approved collection of injectable dermal fillers is a top choice in both the US and globally, featuring six distinct and long-lasting fillers to enhance volume in specific areas of your face. Two of the most sought-after products in the Juvéderm collection are Volbella XC and VOLUMA C. VOLBELLA XC delicately boosts lip volume and smooths vertical lip lines, often referred to as smoker's lines.
Additionally, it can address perioral lines, which are wrinkles around the mouth. VOLUMA XC, in contrast, is tailored to amplify volume in the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin area, helping to restore lost volume due to aging or weight loss. Additional Juvederm products include JUVÉDERM Ultra XC, Ultra PLUS XC, and Vollure XC.

Exquisite New Volume
Lip fillers are an elegantly simple cosmetic procedure. With no incisions required, the treatment is typically performed in our sophisticated Charlotte office. Juvederm and Restylane, infused with hyaluronic acid, helps maintain your exquisite new volume. Your aesthetic specialist will carefully select one or more injection sites within the target areas, sanitize them with antiseptic, and administer the lip filler according to your bespoke treatment plan.
You can expect to see your full results in about a week, but you will see an immediate improvement in the volume and fullness of your lips.

Little to No Downtime
Although you could encounter mild redness, swelling, or bruising, these effects should subside within approximately a week. It is also recommended to limit your exposure to the sun following the procedure. After a day or so of rest, you can resume your regular activities easily.
