How do lip fillers work?
As our bodies age, we lose our supply of natural youth-enhancing compounds such as hyaluronic acid and collagen. These substances are responsible for the skin’s hydration, its resilience, and its supple glow. By reintroducing HA via injectables, our team, led by board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sidney J. Starkman, is able to effect immediate and remarkable results that reverse the signs of aging and restore confidence. Because our lip fillers trigger the regeneration of collagen, results continue to improve over time, lasting in some cases as long as 12 months.
Most of the fillers we use are formulated with lidocaine to help keep you completely comfortable and stress-free during treatment. We also use ultra fine needles to fill the lips, so your procedure is virtually painless.
