What are Lip Fillers?

Aesthetic Contours

Lip Fillers are a very popular cosmetic procedure that creates fuller and plumper lips. Whether it be Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen, or Fat injections, Dr. Heidari offers his Southern California patients a variety of dermal filler options, each of which he has particular expertise in performing. Together, you will be able to design a treatment that is tailored to best suit your needs and goals so that your lips look as plump as ever without looking overdone.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a natural substance that your body creates and it acts like a lubricant for your joints. When injected into strategic locations on your lips, it increases the shape, structure, and volume of your lips. Since it is a natural substance, your body will break it down and absorb it over time.

Collagen was once the most popular technique but is often used less in this new era of lip Fillers. Much like HA, Collagen is a naturally developed substance by your body. The older we get, the less collagen our bodies produce, which is why we develop wrinkled, sagging skin.

Another method that can be used is fat injections or implants, but fat injections are less predictable and may not last as long and implants can have a greater risk of side effects.

What are the Benefits of Lip Fillers?

Lip Fillers have the ability to make anyone feel sexier which helps increase self-confidence. Some other benefits that come from this treatment are:

  • Control over lip volume
  • Gradual pace of treatment
  • Less bruising
  • Minimal potential for allergic reactions
  • Reasonably long-lasting results

Who are the Best Candidates for Lip Fillers?

The best candidates for Lip Fillers will have thinned lips that may detract from their normal appearance. Other qualities that potentially good candidates have are:

You could also be a great candidate if you are looking to fix the following skin issues:
  • Asymmetrical lips
  • Can stop taking certain medications or supplements without negative effects
  • Maintain realistic expectations from the results
  • Nonsmoker
  • Overall healthy with no pre-existing conditions that may inhibit their healing (i.e. uncontrolled diabetes, blood disease, chronic cold sores, etc.)
  • Wrinkles around their mouth

While a patient of any age can be a good candidate for lip Fillers, there are particularly special implications for older patients. This is because, as we age, our lips tend to thin out and lose fat, causing us to look and feel older or less attractive.

What’s the First Step?

Aesthetic Contours

The first step in getting Lip Fillers in Upland is to contact your nearest Aesthetic Contours by Dr. Heidari. When you come in for an appointment, you will be able to meet with Dr. Heidari and express your desires for the treatment along with addressing any concerns you may have. He will then discuss your medical history with you and examine your lips. When discussing your medical history, it is very important that you share everything with Dr. Heidari. Your clarity and honesty allow him to make decisions that are important in keeping you safe with the best results possible.

After he has completed your evaluation, Dr. Heidari will craft a procedure plan just for you. If you agree with this plan, you will then be able to receive the filler that day, or schedule your appointment with our Patient Coordinator for a time that better suits you. Once your procedure is scheduled, you will be provided with a list of instructions to follow for a successful treatment.

What to Expect on the Day of Lip Fillers

Aesthetic Contours

No matter what type of filler you are getting for your injection, they should all be about the same process. When you come in, we request that you avoid wearing any make-up or lip gloss as it will just be removed. Once your lips are clean, a numbing cream may be applied or a cold compress will be used to give you a more comfortable experience.

When it’s time to receive your filler, the technician will use a very fine needle to inject tiny amounts of the filler into strategic locations on your lips, only adding more if you need it or want more. Once the injections are complete, you may be asked to stick around for 10 – 20 minutes to ensure you don’t have a negative reaction.

You will be able to leave after you are released and return to your daily routine. You should avoid any strenuous activities for the first few days after your injections. We do encourage our patients to gently massage their lips to enhance the result of the treatment, but you will be provided with exact instructions on how to do so.
