Lip Filler Introduction

Lip Fillers

As we age, we naturally lose suppleness to our skin as a result of the loss of subcutaneous fat. Lips can lose their volume due to age, diet, and genetics, and the skin around our lips can lose elasticity. Other factors that affect the skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle. Seeing an increase in wrinkles and sagging skin can affect our confidence, but it doesn’t have to diminish our self-esteem or lifestyle. By opting for a lip filler procedure, you can give yourself a much-needed boost with a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, and our specialists are ready to work with you at our Toronto, ON, clinic today, giving you the plump, full lips you desire, with our cutting edge treatments.

What are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers, also referred to as lip augmentation, are FDA and Health Canada-approved dermal fillers that are used to treat the lip area specifically. Dermal filler is an incredibly popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure that primarily uses Hyaluronic acid-based filler, a naturally occurring substance that your body already produces.

Beyond refining the look of your upper and lower lips, lip augmentation involves stimulating collagen production to add volume and promote skin elasticity and health. When you make an appointment to visit Aviva, our specialists can recommend one of the following lip filler procedures we offer using Juvederm. The great thing about Juvederm is that, unlike most other fillers, it is made of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid created from bacterial fermentation called Non-Animal Stabilised Hyaluronic Acid. The ingredients are completely vegan (non-animal based)

Each treatment can offer a range of benefits for our patients, and when you give us a call, our specialists will help determine which lip filler is right for you, giving you the results you desire.

What's the first step?

It’s about you
What’s the first step?

The first step to getting a lip filler in Toronto is to schedule a consultation session. During this session, we will explain what a lip filler is. Your assigned provider will assess your desired outcomes and determine whether you are the right candidate for this procedure.

Your consultation session is your opportunity to discuss any concerns or questions about lip enhancements you have. Upon completion of the assessment, our specialists will be able to confirm the lip filler cost and provide you with any necessary information to help you achieve optimal results.

While you should be able to receive your lip fillers the same day as your consultation, we strongly recommend that you avoid consuming alcohol or using blood thinners such as fish oils, Aspirin, Aleve, ibuprofen, and Advil for at least seven days before your appointment.

What's the first step?

What to expect on the day of a Lip Filler treatment

All of our lip filler treatments are quick, painless, and require no downtime. On the day of your appointment, your specialist will walk you through the procedure and the techniques they will be using. Your assigned specialist will explain which lip filler they will be using on you.

The first step is to ensure that your face is clean before the injection and will use either a cold compress or numbing cream to make your experience more tolerable and painless. The second step is the injection with a fine needle. Injections are marked beforehand and will take only a few seconds.

After your lip injection, it’s normal for our team to gently massage the area so the filler is evenly dispersed. The treated area will be examined and we will only add more filler if needed. This process will continue until you are both satisfied with your appearance.

Lip filler injections take approximately 20 to 30 minutes and require virtually no downtime after the procedure because they are minimally invasive. That means you can go back to nearly all of your daily activities as soon as your procedure ends.

Lip Fillers recovery

The majority of our patients do not experience any side effects from lip fillers. Since lips contain so many blood vessels, there will be some redness and swelling what should subside within a few hours, but can take as long as a day. You can use an ice pack and over-the-counter pain medication to alleviate any discomfort. Your assigned specialist can also recommend some topical gels or ointments to soothe any irritation you may experience.

We always recommend avoiding any intense or strenuous activity for the first 24 – 48 hours to not increase blood flow and minimize any swelling or bruising but can do most of your normal activities without worry. To minimize swelling, you can apply ice packs at 20-minute intervals throughout the day. You will also need to keep your head elevated at night while sleeping. You may feel a bit tender for the next day or so, but you shouldn’t require any pain medication.

There may be an initial “overfilled” appearance in the treated areas, which will settle within a day.
