Are Lip Fillers Right for Me?


Updated: Jun 2

Discover the Latest Solution for Youthful, Natural-Looking Lips from the Lip Filler Experts at Oak Dermatology.

Are your lips beginning to show signs of aging, lost volume, or dehydration? If so, consider a lip filler procedure with one of our board-certified Dermatologists or Physician Assistant at Oak Dermatology. Lip fillers are a great solution to reduce the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, improve volume, and define your lip shape. Lip filler treatments can give your lips a natural, fuller appearance fast and with little downtime.

What are lip fillers?

Lip fillers are designed to restore the shape and volume of your lips while meeting your aesthetic goals. At Oak Dermatology we use dermal fillers specially designed for lips that are made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural ingredient responsible for locking moisture into the skin, giving lips a hydrated, plump appearance.

What can I expect during my lip filler procedure and recovery?

The process for receiving lip fillers begins with a consultation. This will allow your provider to evaluate your lips and give you an opportunity to discuss your aesthetic goals. Based on your conversation, your provider will recommend the best filler options. The lip filler procedure is a very quick and overall comfortable procedure, which can be done approximately in 30 minutes. More than one treatment may be needed depending on your desired result. Recovery will include some swelling for the first few days and possibly mild bruising. Results are immediate.

Will my lips look fake after receiving lip fillers?

Many patients are concerned that their lips will appear fake after their procedure. At Oak Dermatology, we believe that your lips should complement your natural, beautiful features and never appear fake. Our lip filler procedures are completely customized to the patient’s desired outcome. Sometimes our patients aren’t necessarily looking for a fuller lip, but instead want to boost hydration, define their lips’ border, or correct asymmetry. We offer a wide portfolio of fillers, including Juvéderm and Restylane, allowing us to carefully choose the right product to achieve each patient’s desired result.

Are you ready for fuller, beautiful lips?
