The Power of Lips

By: Our Team


Besides being polite and looking people in the eyes during a conversation where is the next place you’re drawn to during face to face communication? The lips.

There is a lot of focus around your lips so there’s no mystery why women have the desire for “perfect” lips. You use your lips for talking, eating, smiling, and kissing.  When you’re happy, sad or angry, it’s your mouth that’s usually the first to give away your emotions.

Dermal fillers are a nice way to enhance, create symmetry, improve texture and even diffuse undesirable wrinkles around your lips. As you begin to age, you lose the natural collagen from your lips. Cosmetic fillers come to the rescue of thinning lips as well!

Dr. Desjarlais is known for creating natural enhancements to the lips and has an art for creating facial balance when features are not proportionate to your face.

4 Ways Your Lip Fillers Can Transform Your Look (without becoming a Blow Fish)

Natural lips are always in fashion. You don’t have to go overboard with those lip injections to look amazing and confident.

Dermal Fillers can guarantee to enhance the following areas of your lips:

Structure: Structure is created by enhancing Philtrum ridges of the lips, and the entire face gains more symmetry.

Volume Enhancement: Fillers can augment the fleshy part of the upper and lower lip to mimic collagen and give a ‘Plump Effect’ to them.

Definition and Dimension to the lips: It is one of the most common areas of concern for many people who seek lip injections. The vermilion borders and Cupid’s bow is enhanced to give that much-needed definition and dimension to the lips. 

Sad corners of the mouth: Lines that go down from the corners of the mouth can be lifted up just by using lip injections. That is happy news, indeed!

What goes into your skin and why Desjarlais Aesthetic Center chooses Restylane Kysse?

Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid (HA) that was created to mimic your body’s own naturally produced ingredient. Compared to the natural HA already in your body, the formulation in Restylane has been modified slightly to last longer in the body.

Restylane Kysse is a lip filler that adds volume, smooths upper lip lines, and enhances lip color. Designed specifically for the movement of lips, Restylane Kysse is made with XpresHAn Technology’s innovative cross-linking gel for precise, natural-looking results.

Lip injections are considered a quick, non-invasive treatment with little recovery time. However, it is important to know that your results from dermal fillers are not permanent and typically last between nine months to one year, but the results are worth your investment.

What to expect after treatment?

You may have swelling or tenderness and bruising after the procedure, though the side effects should be minor. The lips can feel lumpy initially, primarily due to swelling and bruising, that generally resolves within one to two weeks.

Here’s a timeline of what to expect:

ay 2-3: “OMG they’re so swollen. I regret this!”

Day 3-4: Potentially bruised and a little lumpy.

Day 7: “Ok. I’m getting used to them.”

Week 2: “I love my lips!!!”

8-12 Months: “I miss my Desjarlais Lips! Time for more filler!”

At Desjarlais Dermatology & Aesthetic Center we understand that any cosmetic facial injection can feel intimidating. Our team is happy to answer any questions over the phone or during a consultation with Dr. Desjarlais himself.
