More and more patients are turning to non-surgical lip augmentation these days. Why? They’re able to achieve full, luscious lips that are magazine-worthy, very often in a single in-office appointment. If you’d like to temporarily plump your lips or address verticle lip lines, you might be able to benefit from dermal fillers too.

At Karolak Facial Plastic Surgeon, we offer a variety of fillers specially-designed for the soft, sensitive area around the mouth. We’ve helped countless men and women get the results they want through both surgical and non-surgical methods. Today, we’ll take a closer look at why our clients love dermal fillers and whether they’re the right treatment option for your needs.

Wall Township Lip filler

#1: Near-Instant Outcomes

One of the best things about dermal fillers is the ability to produce near-instant results. Once injected, you’ll be able to see fuller, smoother lips almost immediately. As any post-treatment swelling subsides, gradual improvement will occur. In most cases, you’ll be able to see an optimal outcome in about 2-weeks.

Although dermal fillers are considered a temporary solution for augmenting the lips, many can last upwards of 6-12 months with a single in-office visit.

#2: Custom Treatment Options

No two patients have the exact same aesthetic concerns or goals. That’s why Karolak Facial Plastic Surgeon uses a range of fillers from the Juvederm and Restylane line of hyaluronic acid fillers based on what Dr. Karolak feels will look best on each patient. As a skilled, board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Karolak is able to customize treatments according to your unique facial anatomy to achieve the most natural, beautifully shaped lips.

#3: Achieve A Natural Look & Feel

Dermal fillers are designed to plump and hydrate the skin from within. When done by a skilled injector, you’re left with lips that have a naturally fuller appearance. Dr. Karolak performs all injectables himself to ensure an optimal outcome and precision placement based on his patients’ specific needs and unique goals.

#4: A Pain-Free Experience

Most dermal fillers used at Karolak Facial Plastic Surgeon are lidocaine-enhanced making treatments not only quick, but also easy. In general, treatments take just a few short minutes and patients tolerate the experience quite well. A topical numbing agent can be applied prior to treatment for patients that have ultra-sensitive skin.

#5: A No-Downtime Procedure

There is no downtime required after your dermal filler appointment. You’ll be able to get back to most day-to-day activities right away. Restrictions may include avoiding the application of makeup or massaging the treatment area for upwards of 4+ hours. Side effects are typical mild and short-lived but can include swelling, redness, and/or bruising.

Dermal fillers are an ideal treatment option for patients that would like to achieve temporary lip augmentation after age-related volume loss. Patients that would like more permanent results may be better suited for surgical augmentation with PermaLip. Dr. Karolak will discuss all of your options in-depth at the time of your consultation.

“I can’t say enough on how much I love and appreciate Dr. Karolak. His bedside manner and his creativity is amazing. Some doctors don’t have an eye for what really fits someone’s face. I go to him for Botox, but I know he’s great at all injections and facial surgeries. So many people think that you can go to any Doctor for Botox, but that is false. I’ve been to so many plastic surgeons – top of the line – and there was always a problem, but never with Dr. Karolak he’s the best!! I leave feeling confident in what he did. Never any concerns and never any problems thank you so much…*”
