Additionally, volume, plumpness and hydration can be added to the lips. This is done by placing hyaluronic acid gel into the lips at precise spots to create naturally beautiful and soft results.
Most lip fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid and are in a gel form. Your lips, like any other part of your skin, contain hyaluronic acid (HA). This HA is what helps to store moisture, and allows your skin to remain hydrated, soft, and healthy. When a hyaluronic acid gel is injected into the lips, it helps to add volume and restore that healthy plump appearance of a youthful smile.
Lip filler can help to create fuller, more voluptuous lips. It can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. In addition, lip fillers can provide a boost of hydration and plumpness to the lips.
Lip filler is a popular cosmetic treatment that can provide many benefits. Some common benefits include:
If you look at your lips and feel they are thin, or if you are starting to notice “smoker’s lines” or wrinkles forming on the lips, lip fillers may be for you.
It is non-surgical and produces instant results with little to no downtime involved. It is a relatively low-risk procedure if you are looking to augment your lips to improve your facial harmony. During your consultation at Troiano Facial Plastics we will review your medical history and make sure that you don’t have any conditions or allergies that would prohibit you from enjoying the benefits of this highly sought-after treatment. Our goal is to provide you with the very best lip fillers West Palm Beach has to offer.
You may be a candidate if:
Lip filler results are immediate, and you can expect to see a difference in the plumpness of your lips. There is minimal downtime involved, and you should be able to resume your normal activities right away.
It is important to avoid strenuous activity or exposure to sunlight for at least 24 hours after the procedure. Recovery time is typically short, and you can expect to see the full results of your lip fillers within a week.
Avoid smoking for at least two weeks after your lip filler procedure. Smoking can cause the lips to become dried out and wrinkled, which can impact the results of your treatment.
In some cases, clients may have had lip fillers performed by other providers where the lip filler may have migrated, or simply been placed incorrectly. In these situations, Dr. Troiano can correct the previous procedure using a filler dissolver. Unfortunately, she has had to do this a lot! This process can be performed in the office, with a 2-to-4 week window suggested afterward prior to performing any further reinjections. After this time, Dr. Troiano can perfect your lips in an often graduated approach. Less is more!

Dr. Troiano offers a variety of lip filler treatments, including hyaluronic acid fillers, bio-stimulating fillers, and natural fillers (PRF injections). Your consultation will help determine the perfect option for you and your goals.
Swelling of the lips occurs from the time of treatment and reaches its maximum at 3 days after treatment. Sometimes the swelling is uneven during the healing process but will become even by the end of two weeks, at which time healing has completed. Dr. Troiano is very meticulous with her technique and therefore bruising is kept to a minimum. However, there is no guarantee that there will be no bruising!
Lip filler results, while immediate, are not permanent. Depending on which product is used, the filler can last from 6 months to 1 year. All patients are seen in follow up to ensure that results are perfect and that no tweaks need to be made.
Lip fillers are not a permanent solution, and you can expect the results to last anywhere from six months to a year. The good news is that lip fillers are reversible, so if you decide you don’t like the results, the filler can be dissolved with an injection of hyaluronidase.
The most common side effects of lip fillers include temporary swelling, bruising, and tenderness. These side effects typically resolve within a week. In rare cases, patients may experience more serious side effects such as infection or allergic reactions.
When it comes time for your procedure, Dr. Troiano will apply her expertise as a facial plastic surgeon to selecting the ideal choice of filler for your unique needs.
Prior to injection, a numbing cream is applied to the lips. Sometimes other numbing procedures can be performed to make the treatment even more painless. Pain management is discussed with each patient individually.
Dr. Troiano will then utilize a variety of techniques, depending on your anatomy and desired end point, to place the hyaluronic acid filler into the different anatomic subsites of the lip. With the help of distraction devices and ice, the treatment is quick and therefore swelling is reduced.
Unlike some providers, where an entire syringe of filler is injected into the lips all at once, you will most likely receive just a portion of filler as necessary. As results are immediately visible, we avoid risking “duck lips” by taking our time and adding just what is needed.
The cost of lip fillers will vary depending on the type of filler used, the amount injected, and the geographical location. In general, you can expect to pay anywhere from $500 to $1500 for lip fillers.
At Troiano Facial Plastics, we use only the highest quality fillers that are FDA-approved and backed by extensive research. We believe that you deserve the very best, which is why we offer a variety of financing options to make lip fillers more affordable.
Lip fillers are relatively painless, and most patients report only minimal discomfort. We use a numbing cream to minimize any discomfort you may feel during the injection process.
There is no special preparation required for lip fillers. We recommend that you avoid taking aspirin or other blood-thinning medications for at least two weeks prior to the procedure to minimize bruising.
You should also avoid consuming alcohol for at least 24 hours before the procedure.
