Lip Filler


Juvederm is dermal fillers designed to restore a more youthful appearance by restoring lost volume, smoothing out lines and wrinkles, and addressing any signs of facial aging. Do not consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment and avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications, if possible for a period of 2 weeks before treatment. Immediately after the injections you face will be cleaned and you should not touch it for 6 hours. After this you may clean your skin with water and a gentle cleanser. Do not expose the area to intense heat. Avoid pressure on the treated areas for the first few days. Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.


Restylane can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years. Do not consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment and avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications, if possible for a period of 2 weeks before treatment. Most people see results immediately after the procedure, since the volume underneath your skin starts smoothing out wrinkles right after the injection. Complete effects can be seen within a week to two weeks.

Lip fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in your body that’s responsible for keeping our skin hydrated and plump. As we age, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid.

During your appointment, first, an anesthetic cream is applied to the area, making this procedure more comfortable. A small injection is made into the soft tissue of the lips. Your medical provider can control the volume of substance and create your desired shape and fullness. Your medical provider will also use the dermal filler to maintain a natural balance and facial proportion so the result is natural and simply an enhancement of your lips. Dermal fillers can quickly deliver the look you desire and can be adjusted to meet your specific aesthetic goals. At Tribeca Medspa, we take a less is more approach and specialize in delivering natural, fresh results that most of our patients desire.

Juvaderm® and Restylane are hyaluronic acid gel dermal fillers and are approved by the FDA. Receiving lip fillers is quick and easy, with little downtime involved. Lip augmentation is generally considered a safe, effective procedure when done by an experienced, qualified medical provider.

Appointments typically take between thirty minutes to an hour. You can easily come in on your lunch break and continue on with the rest of your day!

This all depends on your aesthetic goals you are trying to achieve during your appointment. Typically, one syringe at $750 is used. Your expert provider will discuss your specific costs after a complimentary consultation based on your concerns, time commitment and aesthetic goals.

While results are immediate, swelling can occur which can make your lip augmentation appear more pronounced. Lip fillers may take up to two weeks to fully settle before you can see the full results.

Everyone is different when it comes to the longevity of your lip fillers. Typically, you’ll be able to enjoy results for approximately one year, but individual results may vary.

Because most dermal lip fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body, there is only a small likelihood of an allergic reaction. Side effects of lip fillers are mild and injection-related and if they occur, will only last a couple of days. Side effects include slight bleeding from the injection, swelling, bruising, redness and tenderness at the injection site.

Unlike other invasive lip augmentation options, dermal fillers can begin with a mild enhancement and increase in volume over time if needed, making it an aesthetic treatment with little commitment.
Plump, full lips can combat signs of aging by reducing fine lines and volume loss. If you feel your lips have gotten thinner with age or have developed fine lines, lip fillers can be a great option for you. Lip fillers can subtly change the look of your lips, enhancing volume and create a symmetrical lip shape.
During a complimentary consultation, you will meet with a medical aesthetician to go over your medical history, talk about your concerns and let you know what type of results you can get from fillers, including which filler is recommended for you.

A BOTOX® lip flip is a quick nonsurgical injection that helps people who  feel like their upper lip disappears when they smile or have a gummy smile, achieve a fuller upper lip.  The injection causes the part of your upper lip that’s inside your mouth to “flip” upward and outward, giving your lip a fuller appearance.
A lip flip is different from fillers in that lip flips use a small amount of BOTOX to relax the muscles around your upper lip to give the appearance of fullness, the actual volume doesn’t increase like it does with fillers.
Results of a BOTOX lip flip can be seen in 4- 6 days after treatment and last 2-3 months.
