Common Lip Augmentation Options In Medical Spas

If you are considering lip augmentation, make sure to be aware of all of the options available to you. Each option features unique benefits, is priced differently and require different types of aftercare. You can obtain lip augmentation services from our medical spa, and many medical spas offer the options featured here.


Juverderm is widely regarded as a popular choice for lip enhancement. This lip filler is used to minimize the look of fine lines on the lips. It also adds volume to lips using plant-based, natural materials. There is no need for allergy testing when choosing this lip enhancement option, but a full medical history must always be provided to our practitioners to ensure the safest treatments are offered to you.


Restylane is a formula that contains hyaluronic acid. This unique formula adds fullness to lips and maintains that fullness for as long as six months. Allergy testing is required before Restylane is used for lip enhancement. This method is available if you are 21 years of age or older. Also, the new Restylane Silk was specially formulated to provide superior lip enhancement results. Ask us about this during your consultation.


Perlane is used to reduce fine lines while enhancing the look and pout of lips. Like Restylane, this lip enhancement option contains hyaluronic acid, but the gel particles in this option are larger. Perlane is not a permanent dermal filler, so repeat treatment is necessary to maintain the fullness of lips, as with any non-surgical injectable treatment.

Additional Considerations

Consulting with a professional is the best way to find out the specific pros and cons of each option available to you. If you have any serious drug allergies, make sure to let our injection specialists know ahead of time. This will help in the process of choosing a lip enhancement option that is best for your needs.
