Lip Injections San Diego
Many women seek full, luscious lips because they are recognized as a symbol of sensuality, beauty and youth. Part of ideal lip appearance consists of a full upper lip that obscures the upper teeth in part, when the mouth is slightly open. Achieving fuller, sensual, more aesthetic lips is possible through lip injections.
At Eros Beauty and Wellness in San Diego, nonsurgical lip injections are offered to help you attain a youthful and beautiful appearance. You may find out what the perfect lip injection option for you is by scheduling a one-on-one consultation with board-certified Dr. Christine Eros of San Diego. Dr. Eros and her staff use the latest products and state-of-the-art equipment to offer you optimal lip injection outcomes.
Who is a Candidate for Lip Injections?
Just about anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of their lips may be a candidate for lip injections. If you were born with thin or poorly defined lips, then Dr. Eros can help you achieve the beautiful, full lips you’re looking for.
Lip Injections provide an excellent option for women who have lost volume and definition in their lips because of aging. This procedure can help you restore full, youthful lips you once enjoyed.
Lip Augmentation through Lip Injections
Lip Augmentation through lip injections will restore lips to their natural fullness with various hyaluronic acid lip fillers, including Belotero Balance, Juvéderm® and Restylane®. With just a small amount of lip injections, you can regain the original fullness and sensuality of your lips.
Belotero Balance Lip Injections
At Eros Beauty and Wellness of San Diego, one product we offer for lip injections is the lip-filler Belotero Balance.
Belotero Balance lip filler is ideal for treating moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles within your lips, like the vertical lip lines from smiling, talking, and eating. It blends into your lips for a natural appearance with minimal down time.
Belotero Balance is injected into the tissues of the lips with a fine needle so there is minimal discomfort. The product is mixed with lidocaine which will reduce pain after injection. Results may be seen immediately after lip injections.
Lip Injections can last up to 6 months and with routine maintenance, the lines should begin to fade. Belotero Balance is excellent for lips, lines around the mouth and tear trough areas.
Juvéderm® Ultra XC
Juvéderm® Ultra XC is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid gel used to improve volume to the lips. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in our skin and lips. This lip injection gives your lips a subtle lift with results often lasting up to 2 years. Results should be seen immediately after injection.
Juvéderm ® Ultra XC is specific for moderate to severe lines within the lips, and is for injection into the lips and perioral area for lip augmentation in adults over 21.
Juvéderm® Ultra XC is injected directly into your lips. Lidocaine is present to help aid with discomfort during and after the lip injection procedure. More than one application may be required to reach your desired effect. The treatment may also be done in stages, staggered in one month intervals.
One can expect bruising and swelling as the most common side effects. The swelling resolves after 24 hours. Icing would be helpful after lip injections to diminish the swelling. Bruising can last up to 1 week after lip injections.
“I have been going to Dr. Eros for Botox® and facial fillers for about a year now. She has a large well appointed office with a friendly knowledgable staff. Dr. Eros continually provides solid results with great pricing. She always has a light touch, never leaves any bruising on me, and most importantly my Juvéderm® always looks well balanced and even. I have been to many other beauty clinics and not experienced the same positive results I consistently receive from Dr. Eros and her staff.” — Jessica
Restylane® and Restylane® Silk is an FDA approved soft hyaluronic acid gel used for the treatment of moderate to severe lines. It may be administered to give volume to the face or lips. This lip filler can be used by itself or in concert with other fillers and neuromodulators. The effects can last between 8 months to 1 year.
It produces tremendous results with:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Cheek augmentation
- Lip augmentation
A fine lip injections needle is used to deliver Restylane® to your lips. For comfort during and after the lip augmentation procedure, an anesthetic is added. Swelling and bruising are common after lip injections, but easily abated through ice packs. Swelling should subside within 24 hours. Treatment time is less than thirty minutes with no downtime. Normal makeup and skincare can resume immediately.

“I got lip fillers for the first time. I thought it was going to be a painful procedure, but it wasn’t at all. Dr. Eros made me feel very comfortable and explained what she was going to do step by step. I’m really happy with the results. My lips feel great when putting on lipstick. I would do it again in the future because it’s worth it and painless. I had it done because my upper lip needed plumping and Dr. Eros made this possible. I highly recommended getting it done. Don’t over think it, just do it.”
Lip Augmentation FAQs
Who is a candidate for lip augmentation in San Diego?
Any healthy adults who are non-smokers and not using anticoagulants can benefit from lip augmentation. It is essential to have realistic expectations ahead of treatment. Fillers can do wonders to enhance your natural beauty, but they can’t make you look like someone else.
How do lip fillers work?
Dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our bodies. This molecule is a humectant, which means it can attract and retain moisture. When applied by a trained injector, these smooth, gel-based fillers can volumize your lips for a sexier pout. They can also diminish the fine lines that develop around your mouth and chin.
What can I expect during and after lip filler treatment?
Dr. Eros injects fillers into the lips with a fine needle. Filler formulations include a topical anesthetic called lidocaine to ensure your comfort during the brief, in-office procedure. Lip injections in San Diego immediately create fuller, better-defined lips. The filler will gradually dissolve into your natural tissue after about six to eight months, so you’ll need periodic touch-up treatments to sustain your look.
The most common side effects of dermal fillers are swelling and bruising, which will resolve on their own a few days after your treatment. You can reduce these with the simple at-home remedy of ice packs. While activity restrictions are minimal after getting lip fillers, we do ask that you avoid strenuous exercise, which can increase your blood pressure and make bruising more pronounced.
What benefits can I expect?
You will notice beautiful lips soon after treatment. Over time the filler will dissolve into the natural tissue.
Where can I get lip fillers in San Diego?
For the utmost safety, comfort, and satisfaction, opt to get lip fillers from a skilled medical professional. Dr. Eros is a board-certified family physician who has trained alongside many renowned dermatologists to equip herself with the necessary knowledge to provide natural-looking results with many of today’s most sought-after minimally invasive procedures.
