Lips are often the first thing that catch your eye, and one of the first things people notice about us. Unfortunately, they are often one of the first areas of our face that show the effects of aging. As lips age, they develop vertical lines, become thinner, and affect your entire appearance. At Walnut Creek Aesthetics, we can:
- Smooth away unwanted lip lines
- Create a more aesthetically pleasing overall look by adding volume to the lip.
- Define the Cupid’s Bow, giving your lips an overall softer appearance, and
- Create a more defined whole lip.

What is a lip enhance?
During one of our injection sessions, our very talented nurse or nurse practitioner will assess not only your lips, but your face as a whole. They will analyze your specific situation and guide you towards the correct product for you to choose. By doing this, we create the most natural and enhanced lip for you that will beautifully complement your facial structure. You can be confident that your lips will be beautiful and natural looking.
How is the Lip Treatment preformed?
Once you arrive for your appointment, you’ll be taken back to the treatment room where your assessment will begin. Once the assessment is completed, we will apply our proprietary blend of numbing creams to make your experience extremely comfortable. We have undertaken particular efforts to learn new techniques of numbing to ensure the experience is as comfortable as possible for our patients. We can also provide dental blocks for you added comfort. Our board-certified aesthetic nurse specialist or nurse practitioner will determine which product is best for you.
Juvéderm™ Family of Products
One of the most popular Hyaluronic Acid – based fillers available is Juvéderm. Lip enhancement with Juvéderm will most likely last for approximately 6 to 12 months. However, a maintenance injection is generally required at about 6 to 9 months. Your practitioner will choose the Juvéderm filler that is most suited for you and your objectives. You can choose from Juvéderm Volbella™ for a softer, more natural filler. Or, you may choose Juvéderm Ultra™ for a more robust look. In either case, Juvéderm is our most popular lip filler.
Restylane™ Family of Products
The Restylane Family of fillers are also comprised of Hyaluronic Acid – based compounds, with multiple formulas to choose from. Your highly trained injector will work with you to choose from these formulas, ranging from Restylane Kysse™ the newest Injectable on the market, to Restylane Silk™ the core of the Restylane family formulas. These fillers also last 9-12 months and require one touch up in-between to maintain best results.
