Why Lip Injections Can Really Make the Face

Lips are what frame our smile. They are the gateway to the stories that we tell throughout the day. They are used to express ourselves: whether that be to paint them in an assortment of different colors, coat them in gloss, or go bare, our lips tell a lot about our character and how we choose to present ourselves. It’s for these reasons that lip augmentation has become one of the leading cosmetic procedures performed each year.

At Eros Beauty and Wellness in San Diego, highly trained physician Dr. Christine Eros offers lip augmentations to help her patients achieve subtle to full volume in their lips.

What Are Lip Injections?

Lip Augmentation through lip injections will add or restore volume to lips by using various hyaluronic acid lip fillers. At Eros Beauty and Wellness, we use Belotero Balance, Juvéderm®, and Restylane®, customized to the aesthetic results you are hoping for. With just a small amount of lip injections, you can attain fuller, more sensual, and more aesthetic lips that still fit the natural look of your features.

Belotero Balance

Belotero Balance lip fillers will help to treat moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around the lips due to smiling, talking, eating, or smoking. The ultra-fine solution will blend into your lips for a natural appearance with minimal down time and results that can be seen immediately.

Juvéderm® Ultra XC

Juvéderm® Ulta XC is composed of hyaluronic acid, a compound that is found naturally in the body. It is formed into a gel that is injected into the lips via a fine needle. You shouldn’t feel any pain as a topical lidocaine will be applied before the administration of the injections. This lip injection provides your lips with a subtle lift but can also be used for moderate to severe lines.


Restylane® is another hyaluronic acid gel formula that can be administer to the face and lips to add or restore volume. With this super fine solution, your lips will look and feel like your own, but with an added lift.

What To Expect

Slight bruising and swelling is common after lip injections but can easily be remedied with an ice pack and should resolve within 24 hours. Treatments usually take no more than thirty minutes, and you are free to go about your usual activities immediately after your procedure. Your lips might seem fuller than you expected at the beginning, but as the body adjusts to the fillers, your lips will settle into their final form.
