SKIN VITALITY PROUDLY SERVING CANADIANS SINCE 1992
Lip injections, otherwise known as lip augmentation, is a cosmetic treatment that helps plump and volumize your lips with an injectable filler (the most common being hyaluronic acid-based products, like Juvéderm or Teosyal).
Dermal fillers are designed to add natural-looking volume to your lips, fill with some plumpness, and/or even out the shape of your lips. While some may think of Instagram-Influencer lips when they hear “lip injections,” others know that injectable fillers are actually super customizable. This is why Skin Vitality offer a Free Consultation before every injectable treatment. A member of our medical team and a registered medical professional take a look at your lips and make recommendations based on your aesthetic goals.

Skin Vitality’s injection techniques are centred around the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi. This refers to the features located at the center of the face – the lips, eyes, and nose, otherwise known as “the triangle of beauty”. Lip injections are one of the most common treatments in order to enhance the lips and even out these three features.
Since the early Renaissance period, famous artists, such as Da Vinci, have used this Golden Ratio to sketch their paintings, such as the Monalisa. This triangle of beauty has been applied to facial aesthetics and has become a guideline for beauty treatments. We may be unaware of this unwritten rule, but we continue to subconsciously judge beauty based on facial symmetry and proportion.
According to a study done by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there has been an exponential, ongoing growth in lip augmentation treatments in the last decade. Between lip injections or fillers and Botox, there was over 2.6 million injectable treatments performed in 2018 alone. This can be attributed to the 312% increase in injections between 2000 and 2017.
The spike in popularity has pushed the demand for these services, causing medical spas and clinics to open their doors. Although this provides more options for the patient, not all lip augmentation treatments are created equally. The severe complications that occur with dermal fillers are usually a result of unauthorized non-medical injectors. Therefore it is extremely important for patients to seek reputable organizations that provide Health Canada approved products for injection.
Although lip augmentation is the most popular application of dermal fillers, there are plenty of other injection sites that Juvederm Fillers can be used to enhance your facial features.
Dermal fillers are best known as a treatment that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making it an ideal treatment to make up for lost volume. Depending on the patient’s goals, different products will be used for different areas of the face, as well as unique injection techniques. See the different applications of Juvederm below.

As lip injections are one of Skin Vitality’s most popular and requested treatments, it is important to achieve the natural look our patient’s desire. Dermal fillers can be used to restore volume lost over time, especially on more mature lips. Fillers can also be used to enhance the volume and proportion of a younger patient’s lips.
One of the most common concerns from patients, pre-treatment, is that their lips will end up looking like “fish lips” or “duck lips”. Our registered Nurses, Nurse Practitioners and Doctors are used to hearing this concern and understand that this type of undesirable look can be attributed to multiple factors:
Each hyaluronic acid filler has a different concentration of hyaluronic acid in order to achieve different outcomes, based on the treatment area. If the injected product has a hyaluronic acid concentration that is too high for your lips, it can create an unattractive white ridge around the top section of the lip. This is because hyaluronic acid fillers pull moisture and surrounding water to the injection site. This white ridge is a direct result of the hyaluronic acid, pulling too much water to the desired area.
All injectable fillers being used for the lip area need to be composed hyaluronic acid. Never let an injector inject a product that is not a hyaluronic acid-based filler. These types of fillers are reversible and can be fixed if any issues arise.
Lastly, it is extremely important to find a product that provides a level of elasticity. Our mouths and lip area move quite regularly, so a product that moves with them is needed to provide natural looking results.

No, lip injections themselves do not ruin your lips, but improper injection techniques or un-register health care professionals can. This can be because the medical professional may “ruin” your lips by over-injecting and making them look fake. Always ensure you are going to a registered Nurse, Nurse Practitioner or Doctor for your lip injections to avoid these complications.
Lip augmentation treatments are minimally invasive, quick, and produce immediate results. Although the treatment is relatively quick, lip injections can last anywhere from 6 months to a year and half, depending on the product used and how fast your body metabolizes it.
Usually, lip injections are fast and easy. Some patients feel minor discomfort and or a slight pinch, but any pain experienced is usually brief and manageable. Everyone’s body is different so of course some people may experience more pain than others. The amount of filler injected can also affect how much pain you experience. If you are worried about pain, the nurse will offer you numbing agents that can be applied to the upper and bottom lip prior to treatment.
It’s a common misconception that dermal fillers are going to dramatically change your look within the very first treatment. In actuality, 1ml of dermal filler is just the right amount to create a very subtle result that clients can then build upon over time (if that is your goal).
