Lip fillers have become one of the most common cosmetic procedures in recent years, so if you're considering this treatment, you're not alone. The lips are one of the first areas in our face to show aging, so it makes sense that so many people would consider this treatment to restore lost volume. It's also an easy way to enhance the facial features for those who simply have lips that are smaller than their ideal aesthetic.
Our Med Spa team understands that every procedure, from the quickest in office medspa treatment to major cosmetic surgery, is equally important to the patient, and they strive to provide the best possible experience. We offer a luxurious, safe, and customized treatment with lip filler in Boston at our modern medspa.
Lip filler is a Hyaluronic acid (HA) gel injected into or around the lips to enhance, augment, or balance out the natural shape of your lips.
This type of injectable differs from neuromodulators like Botox which work by relaxing small muscles in the face. HA fillers physically fill the treated area to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines, add volume, and smooth lip texture.
Lip fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, provide moisture and volume. It is the ideal substance for enhancing the lips.
When you schedule a consultation with your provider and discuss your lip goals, we are certain you will achieve just the right lip look for you. Choosing between the many HA lip fillers available, our providers are able to provide results tailored to your needs. While all HA lip fillers bring moisture and volume to the lips, they do so at varying degrees allowing for results to be subtle and smooth.
Volbella is an optimal choice for vertical lip lines as well as for adding subtle volume due to its incredibly smooth finish.
Vollure is a great option for a more moderate or substantial lip fill as it is durable but still provides a natural-looking result.
Ultra is an especially hydrating Juvéderm formulation and is great for those who want a supple, luxurious result.
This filler is designed with flexibility in mind and provides an incredibly natural look with enough durability to last a year or more.
Rejuvenated, youthful, stunning lips are within reach with customized lip filler treatment. Our Newton Centre lip filler patients enjoy:
This is a non-invasive, relatively simple procedure, nearly anyone who is looking to improve the volume or general appearance of their lips is likely a good candidate for lip filler. Ideal candidates are typically in good health, over 18 years old, and want to either enhance lip size and shape or address concerns with aging lips. Avoid dental appointments two weeks prior and two weeks after treatment. No active infections or vaccinations within one month of treatment.
Our goal is to ensure that each patient receives custom-tailored aesthetic care.
At your consultation for lip fillers Boston expert injector, Lauren, RN, will talk with you about your unique aesthetic goals and provide a custom-tailored treatment plan for optimal results. If your provider deems you a safe and appropriate candidate, we will have enough time to do your lip injection on the same day.
In most cases, because the lips can be a particularly sensitive area, we will begin by applying a topical anesthetic gel. Then, the filler will be administered using fine, medical-grade needles. Most lip filler sessions take only about 20 to 30 minutes.
The majority of patients should expect to see some possibly significant swelling for a few days. You may also experience some tenderness, bruising, and lumpiness. These are also normal, but if you feel uncomfortable with any side effect, we are always here to help evaluate. Final results should be visible at about four weeks, and the length of results depends on the type of filler.

Most of our Boston lip filler patients find lip fillers slightly uncomfortable but tolerable. Since this is a sensitive area, we do everything we can to ease any discomfort.
Lip fillers are very safe, but possible minor side effects could include swelling, bruising, or bleeding.
Lip fillers are not permanent, and the effects will fade eventually. Depending on the type of filler used, this could be anywhere from three months to one year or more.
The general recommendation is to wait until any residual numbness has worn off. Your provider may ask you to avoid the usage of a straw.
This will depend on the type of filler used. Typically you can expect $700 for one syringe.
