Skin Works Medical Spa’s medical professionals use a steady hand and keen eye to administer lip fillers. To achieve a smooth and symmetrical look, we apply a series of small injections. Consequently, the final result will look natural, and no one will be able to spot your fillers unless you want them to!
Skin Works Medical Spa offers several forms of Lip Injection and Lip Augmentation to meet your needs. We use the industry’s leading products including Juvederm, Belotero, and Restylane, to give you the gorgeous lips you’ve always wanted.
Lip fillers help reduce the signs of aging and smokers’ lines and add volume and shape. We can also increase the size of your lips or add symmetry & balance.
Note: At Skin Works, all fillers are 1ml, and to always keep premium quality, we do not offer half syringes.

Injectable fillers are used to help decrease signs of aging, such as shape or volume loss, downturned lips, and fine lines.

Lip injections are FDA approved and safe for men and women over the age of 16.
How do lip injections work?
Our highly skilled medical professionals will use medical precision to artistically administer lip fillers with a series of small injections for a symmetric, smooth, and cohesive look. The results will look natural, and the fillers will be virtually undetectable.
What are the products used for lip injection made of?
Products such as Belotero, Juvederm, Volbella, or Restylane are fillers composed partially of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in all cells of the body and helps to keep them hydrated and plump. Hyaluronic acid can hold 1000 times its weight in water, so it produces instant volume when injected into the lips.
Are lip injections considered a surgical procedure?
No. Lip injections are just that: injections. No surgery or anesthesia is required.

If you are a woman or man looking to enhance the size or shape of your lips, then lip injections are right for you!
What areas can be treated with lip injections?
The fillers that we use on the lips are also the same fillers we use on the face, so the area around the lips, the lips themselves, and the chin can be injected with fillers to create a symmetrical, balanced shape.

You may take Arnica before your appointment to further reduce your chances for bruising or swelling.
Can I get my lip injection before a special event or travel?
We advise you to get your lip injections at least 2 to 3 weeks prior to any special event just in case you are experiencing swelling or bruising.
