Using the most advanced and safest nonsurgical rejuvenation techniques, we’ll create a customized treatment plan as unique as you are.
At Prime MD Aesthetics and Wellness you have a choice of using a wide variety of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Dermal Fillers. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is found naturally throughout your whole body and acts as a skin plumper. All HA Fillers are completely dissolvable, so in the unlikely event, you didn’t like the results, we can reverse them in seconds. Brands we use in the lips, we find that Versa, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Restylane, and Restylane Kysse look the best. However, the differences between them are minimal and the results are almost entirely depended on the injectors skill level. That being said, we’ll recommend a filler based on your individual needs but ultimately the choice is all yours!
How Long Does Lip Filler Last?
Most lip fillers can last for six to nine months, and sometimes up to a year. However, the longevity of your results is also subject to change depending on certain factors, including your age and how well your body responds to the injectable treatment. For example, while the expected longevity of Juvederm may be between nine and 12 months, it’s possible for the body to break down the injection formula much more quickly.
What Determines The Cost of Lip Filler?
It depends on the injector and medical spa clinic but the most important factors are the type of filler you are using, the look you are going for and how much filler is being used to create your aesthetic goals. For example, between the two, Juvederm is the less expensive filler, while Restylane is a bit pricier. However, the base price of these fillers is subject to change based on how many units are necessary to achieve the desired results. While some patients may only want to fill or augment the lips, others opt to treat the area around the mouth as well. Using additional fillers to relax fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth will inevitably require more units and cost more money.
There are several different styles that are common for lip augmentation, such as:
A Classic fill is one that replaces volume lost in the lips due to aging with the goal of producing natural, subtle results. This style does not alter the natural shape of the lip and is an ideal choice for first-time patients.
The Cupid style focuses primarily on the bow of the upper lip to create a distinct shape of the “Cupid’s bow”. This style is all about defining the shape of the top lip, which means that the bottom lip is usually left alone. The goal of this style is to create shape, not volume.
A Pearlique style is one that focuses on creating more volume in the center of the bottom lip. This style involves two main injections on the two “pearls” of the bottom lip, which creates more volume and accentuates the natural shape of the bottom lip.
A Rubina style focuses on the full expression of both volume and lip shape. This style elevates the border of both the top and bottom lips, refines the shape of the upper lip, and adds definition to the bottom lip.
The Hollywood style is another subtle style that is all about adding fullness to the top lip, particularly the middle section of the upper lip. This style creates volume without augmenting the lip border.
An Angelic filler style also focuses on the top lip with the goal of elevating the shape of the upper lip. Injections are made on the upper borders of the lip to create more volume, while the rest of the lip is left alone, which creates a diamond-like shape, or a shape similar to angel wings.
KEY HOLE POINT:
A Key Hole Pout is a novel type of filler style that augments both the upper and bottom lip to create a small space in the center of the lips or a “key hole”. The goal of this style is to express full lip volume and alter the natural lip shape to create a pout.
Some patients may also want to consider a lip flip, which is a way of creating the illusion of fullness without actually using lip fillers. This option may be ideal for those who are happy with their overall lip shape and volume, but who would like to correct a “gummy” smile by relaxing the muscles around the top lip. A quick and simple way to do this is by using a few units of Botox in the muscles above the upper lip. Using Botox above the upper lip helps relax the muscles, which prevents the upper lip from curling in while smiling. This is a great way to balance your smile and look a bit poutier while still looking natural.
Patients who do not have a goal of increasing lip volume or altering lip shape can also use a small amount of filler to smooth lipstick lines on the lips, which are the verticle lines where lipstick gets caught. This is also a style that is ideal for first-time fillers.
Collagen-like dermal fillers are used to add volume to different areas of the face. It is injected into areas of the face or hands where moderate to severe wrinkles and folds occur. These products add volume to the skin, which greatly aids in the appearance of a smoother surface for up to 2 years based on the filler chosen.

Most patients who receive fillers see visible wrinkle reduction for 9 to 24 months following their initial treatment.ARE THERE ANY SIDE-EFFECTS ASSOCIATED WITH DERMAL FILLER TREATMENT?
As dermal filler treatment results are temporary, there are very few side effects associated with the treatment. Some patients report temporary redness and minimal swelling or bruising at the injection site that subsides within a few days. With any injection, there is always the risk of infection or intravascular complications. These rare complications would need to be reported as soon as possible and would require additional medical treatment.

Botox (a botulinum toxin) is a purified substance derived from bacteria. The injection of botulinum enables the muscle to relax by blocking nerve signals or chemicals that tell muscles to contract. The result is skin that appears smoother.RESULTS
BOTOX was the first brand of botulinum toxin available, however Dysport and Xeomin all contain the same active ingredient as Botox: botulinum toxin type A. All three brands reach their maximum effects in 2-3 weeks, however patients see Dysport usually onset in 1 to 2 days, while Xeomin has a more gradual onset. Botox typically starts working in 2-3 days. There are no studies that determine which lasts longest, most doctors will agree that BOTOX, DYSPORT and XEOMIN last 3-4 months.RECOVERY
Botox procedures generally last around 15 minutes, and no anesthesia is required. You can get back to your routine immediately. The only word of caution is to not rub or massage the injected areas, as the Botox can spread to another area of your face and cause temporary facial weakness or drooping.
