What are lip fillers?
Full lips are a well-known symbol of femininity. But if you have thin lips or are dissatisfied with your facial features, dermal lip fillers like Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® may be the answer. Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics is proud to offer simple injectable treatments so patients can enjoy a pouty or more sensual lip shape.
Both Restylane and JUVÉDERM are uniquely formulated to create smooth and natural-looking results. If you are interested in lip enhancement in Puyallup, WA, call a member of our aesthetic team today. Our team is committed to helping you feel confident and radiant in your skin.
Who is a candidate for lip fillers?
Restylane and JUVÉDERM are made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that naturally occurs in the body. We have an abundance of HA in our younger years, but our bodies tend to produce less of this substance as we age. And when there’s a scarcity of HA, certain parts of our face start to thin out and look less defined. Restylane and JUVÉDERM are designed to replace lost HA and bring back fullness to the lips.
Candidates for lip fillers are over 21 years of age and have reasonable expectations about their results. Restylane and JUVÉDERM provide great outcomes with just one treatment for six months to a year. Because they are non-animal-based products, there is no need for allergy testing.
What to expect during lip filler treatment
Restylane and JUVÉDERM are administered directly into the lips using a very fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. Our specialists at Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics may use methods like ice packs and numbing creams to minimize discomfort and potential side effects from lip fillers. Typical dermal filler sessions last less than an hour but do vary depending on the particular needs of each patient in Puyallup, WA.
How long is recovery after lip fillers?
Lip filler results are immediate, which means patients can walk out of our office with fuller and more defined lips. Restylane injections generally last six months, while JUVÉDERM treatments are clinically proven to stay in place for a year. Occasional touch-up sessions at our clinic are required to maintain results.
Restylane and JUVÉDERM are generally well-tolerated by most people. Possible side effects are mild to moderate in nature and last less than a week. These may include temporary skin reactions like redness, tenderness, and bruising. Most side effects can be covered by makeup shortly after your treatment session.
Lip Fillers Reviews
"Dr was Amazing! I previously went to someone else prior to her and she made corrections and made sure i was satisfied with my lips. She's extremely honest on how much you should / should not put in lips unlike other doctors they will let you put as much as you want as long as your paying for it. She's truly the best! Also another plus is i sleep on my right side a lot so it's hard for me not to after getting lips done so that's why i needed correction in first place... But dr was super kind to see me a few days after procedure to massage my lips so i didn't experience the same thing i did last time when i seen a different doctor. I rate 10/10 ⭐️"- A.P. / Google / Nov 14, 2021
"When I looked for a place to go for Botox and Lip Filler I really wanted an MD not an RN to do these services. I did my research and came across Dr. Domondon, she was perfect. She gave me suggestions and was up front about prices of the services I was interested in. She really is very knowledgeable and gives quality services. As a medical professional myself, I truly recommend Dr. Domondon!!"- S.M. / Google / Jan 23, 2022
"It’s only been a few days after my lip filler appointment, & still have a little bruising but wow - I can’t say enough how painless & amazing my experience was at Concordia Star. I often travel internationally for work, & being an model you can feel a slight pressure to keep yourself looking as Symmetrical as possible (my lips always being a bit of a self conscious issue with photographers needing to tweak them in editing every so often), so I thought now’s the time! Dr. Domondon helped change my life & career for the better, she’s a total rockstar at what she does & I believe for anyone who is thinking about getting filler or Botox, you can totally count on Dr. Domondon to give you the best results 🙌"- F.A. / Google / Feb 04, 2022
"I am so happy I found Dr. Domondon. It was my first time getting lip fillers. I told her how I wanted my lips to look and she delivered. She did exactly what I envisioned. The process was so smooth and her staff was super friendly and helpful. It has been two weeks & my lips are healed & they feel smooth & amazing. I had no issues with the injection & healing process. I have gotten lots of positive compliments on the shape & fullness. The place is so clean and the bonus for me was seeing Crystal spheres at the lobby. No wonder the energy is amazing! Thank you Dr. Domondon and team for your wonderful customer service & work. I have found my most favorite lip team & I'm never looking else where!"- J.G. / Google / Feb 01, 2022
"For those of you considering fillers yet are hesitant.. DONT BE If you're anything like me and looking for options save yourself the trouble and do it here with Dr . Domondon. I've been wanting to get lip fillers for a few years to see if I could correct something I didn't like . I found ppl online that use the "pen" and decided to try it . Please don't make the same mistake I did just because its a cheaper option... the pen is so dangerous and can damage your lips for life! Do it the right way , educate yourself and get your fillers done by a real professional Dr .Domondon was great, I highly recommend her . Thanks to her I now love my lips !"- J. / Google / Feb 08, 2022
Lip filler FAQs
How do fillers compare with lip implants?
Implants are made of foreign materials and substances, which means there's a chance your body will reject them. Implants also can be painful to insert and remove, and they cannot always be adjusted if the result isn't what you imagined. Lip fillers are a safer and more effective treatment option for people in Puyallup who want to enhance their lips.
Should I get Restylane or JUVÉDERM?
Restylane and JUVÉDERM are both FDA-approved for lip augmentation. However, our recommendation depends on your skin, cosmetic goals, and the area to be treated. Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics is proud to offer trusted brands that are known to produce natural and long-lasting results. We can provide guidance regarding the most appropriate product and treatment plan for you.
How much do lip fillers cost?
The cost for lip augmentation varies depending on a number of factors, including the type and brand of filler used and how much is used. We can provide a quote after a quick evaluation. Our hope is to provide quality services at an affordable cost. Ask about our easy financing options during your initial lip filler consultation.
Enhance your lips
As we age, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, which leads to the thinning of areas like our lips. Restylane and JUVÉDERM lip fillers are an increasingly popular way to add fullness and volume to this area once again. If you want to improve or restore the appearance of your lips, call Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics for an assessment. We can discuss whether injections are a smart option for you in Puyallup, WA.
