Lip fillers are a type of injectable designed to address volume loss in the lips. They help add fullness and structure to deflated and dehydrated lips, giving you fuller, plumper, and softer lips.

With aging, you will naturally lose fat and collagen, affecting your skin and lips. Lip filler typically consists of hyaluronic acid (HA) –a natural substance found in the body that attracts moisture and keeps the skin hydrated and plump. When injected into the lips, HA volumizes, softens, and hydrates the lips, enhancing the appearance of the lips without the need for surgery or significant downtime.


Lip fillers come in the form of clear gels and in a variety of formulas and densities to suit various indications of volume loss. We offer the following lip filler brands in our SOHO or Uptown, NYC medical spa:

Restylane® Kysse

Kysse lip filler is the first HA lip filler created with XpresHAn technology. The unique structure and cross-linking technology of the filler allow for natural movement of the lips with long-lasting improvement.


Juvederm is designed to boost hydration and volumize the skin. It restores the support lost through collagen and HA depletion to reverse some signs of aging. Juvederm lip filler comes in two forms for the lips:

Ultra XC®

Juvederm Ultra XC is designed for lip augmentation and is ideal for those who want fuller lips by reshaping the contours of their lips, defining the Cupid’s bow, or correcting asymmetry issues.

Volbella XC®

Juvederm Volbella XC is a smooth formulation used for lip augmentation, as well as the correction of perioral lines (lines around the mouth), vertical lip lines, or lip wrinkles.

Individuals looking for fuller, plumper lips are good candidates for lip filler injections. Those who desire to add more definition to the shape of their lips while achieving a natural look and feel will benefit as well.

Lip injections are a safe treatment option for all skin types and tones. Patients should also be in good general health and have reasonable expectations for the outcome.

We recommend scheduling a consultation in our SOHO or Uptown medical spa to determine if lip filler injections are the right treatment choice for your needs and goals.

Most lip fillers already contain the anesthetic lidocaine to enhance your comfort during the procedure. Our team of board-certified dermatologists will use a very fine needle or cannula to inject the filler into your lips or the skin above your mouth to help smooth the wrinkles around your upper lip.

Most patients find the procedure to be quick and relatively comfortable. A treatment session can last approximately 5-30 minutes. If you are concerned about discomfort during treatment, speak with your physician about the application of topical numbing cream prior to your procedure.


Give yourself the plump lips you desire through the most advanced cosmetic dermatology treatments available.
