The modern lip- soft, lush, kissable.
Some say the lips are the most important part of our face as they are responsible for conveying our thoughts to the world. So, let’s be honest , people look at our lips. Over the years , our lips start to loose their definition and volume.
Static and dynamic lines also develop around the mouth, accentuating the appearance of aging.
At Rao dermatology, we can help to reverse time by delicately restoring the plumpness of the lips and successfully diminishing lines around the mouth.

Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some frequently asked questions about our lip fillers procedure, but if you have concerns that aren’t addressed here, please feel free to contact us.
Who Is a Good Candidate For Lip Injections?
The reasons to have lip filler treatments vary by patients. Some patients have thin lips due to heredity; others feel that when they smile, their lips vanish, while other patients notice a loss of fullness as they get older or the appearance of fine lines as they age.
Various lifestyle factors, such as alcohol use and smoking, can also decrease lip fullness and wrinkling. We also have many patients who come to us for lip plumping because it will correct some visual asymmetries in their lips.
For most patients, lip augmentation can be very rewarding and gives a natural, more pleasing, noticeable smile.

Lip fillers can last anywhere from 6 months to 18 months. Typically, dermal fillers in the lips will be metabolized faster than in other areas of the face. This is because our lips see a lot of motion, eating, drinking, and speaking, which means the product will metabolize the fastest.
