Lip Augmentation in New York City – Marmur Medical

Selected to inject models and patients for global ad campaigns of FDA-approved fillers for lips, celebrity dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon Dr. Ellen Marmur is known as an artist for the perfect lip shape to match your natural look for both women and men. Our providers and our carefully assembled staff stay up to date on the latest procedures available to help people feel confident, beautiful, and love their look at any age. Lip augmentation is a non-surgical solution for anyone who wants to have a simply younger, or fuller, sexier, and better-defined pout. “Great lips should match every other feature of the face–they shouldn’t be distracting or too much.” 

Using fillers, neuromodulators, lasers, or other methods, she and the Marmur Medical team passionately believe in creating beautiful yet subtle, natural-looking results that are never overstated or unrealistic.

Lip enhancement with cosmetic injectables is a simple, in-office treatment that only takes a few minutes. Afterward, you will be able to return to your normal activities. Side effects are mild and should resolve on their own soon.

What Is Lip Augmentation?

As you age, you experience various changes to your appearance, including volume loss. Youthful skin has a wealth of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid – three substances that help keep the skin healthy, plump, and resilient. As production of these three building blocks slows, you may notice your skin appearing thinner, especially your lips. 

Due to lifestyle choices like smoking and excess sun exposure, you might also develop perioral wrinkles, which are fine lines around the mouth. Lip augmentation and rejuvenation are simple, minimally invasive solutions to revitalize your appearance and make you look younger.

What Does Lip Augmentation Entail?

Our team usually recommends injecting hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers like Juvéderm® or Restylane®, Teosyal® or Belotero® into your lips to enhance them. Since hyaluronic acid is a substance that exists naturally in the human body, these fillers are biocompatible and come with minimal risk. 

For perioral wrinkles and lip rejuvenation, we may use FDA-approved neuromodulators like Botox®, Dysport®, or Xeomin®, or we may suggest Fraxel® laser skin resurfacing. 

The Proven Benefits of Lip Augmentation

You have probably seen photos of overdone “duck lips” or a “trout pout” online and worried that your enhanced lips might turn out looking exaggerated. That’s why your choice of provider matters. Our expert injectors love lip sculpting, but they refuse to go overboard. Instead, we will ask you to provide pictures of yourself so we can evaluate how your appearance has changed over the years. Then, we can restore your unique lip shape and size.  

Other advantages of having the Marmur Medical team perform your lip augmentation and rejuvenation include: 

  • Minimally invasive treatment – no anesthesia, stitches, or scarring
  • Zero downtime for recovery
  • Low risk, high reward
  • Quick, convenient appointments that fit into your schedule

Who Is a Good Candidate for Lip Enhancement in NYC?

In general, lip augmentation and rejuvenation procedures are very safe when performed by highly trained providers. The best candidates are people who would like fuller, younger-looking lips and have a realistic expectation for what these treatments can do. Remember, the goal of lip enhancement is not to make you look like someone else. Instead, you will enjoy a subtly refreshed, youthful effect.

What to Expect After Lip Rejuvenation

Lip fillers have immediate and continuous results. Your lips may look and feel a bit swollen after your injection appointment, but the swelling will soon subside, revealing your full, plump, youthful lips. The hyaluronic acid will result in increased collagen production, causing an improved appearance over time.

If you choose Fraxel, HALO, Clear + Brilliant Touch Or INTRAcel laser treatments to reduce perioral wrinkles and improve the tone and texture of the skin around your lips, post-procedure care is essential. Laser treatments can leave your skin more vulnerable to sun damage, so you’ll need to be careful to minimize your exposure to UV rays and carefully apply a sunblock with an SPF or 30 or more to the treated areas.

After asking about your goals for the lip procedure, we will create a comprehensive treatment plan that meets your needs. You can learn more about preparing for your consultation on this page.

NYC Lip Augmentation FAQs

Results of non-surgical lip enhancement aren’t permanent – injectables’ effects eventually wear off within 6-12 months. You will love your new look and want to maintain it, with periodic touch-up treatments. As part of your treatment plan, we will let you know how often to schedule these follow-up appointments.

A knowledgeable treatment provider can combine various fillers in different amounts for a totally tailored appearance. If you choose to take a gradual approach, you can also ease into your ideal lips in stages.

When you choose the talented providers at Marmur Medical for your lip augmentation and rejuvenation treatment, it’s unlikely you will be anything but thrilled with your sexy new appearance. However, it’s possible to reverse the effects by dissolving the filler with hyaluronidase, an enzyme used to break down hyaluronic acid quickly and safely.

As a fractional laser, Fraxel, HALO, Clear + Brilliant Touch or INTRAcel treats damaged skin in small sections, leaving the surrounding skin untouched. The laser energy is gentle yet powerful enough to create micro-injuries that promote cell turnover and kickstart your skin’s natural healing response to minimize perioral wrinkles and improve skin tone and texture. When used for your lips, it exfoliates and promotes a youthful complexion.
