Can You Get Lip Filler Without the "Real Housewife" Effect?

In a word: absolutely!  When most people think of using fillers in the lips, they immediately picture Hollywood types with lips that look "duck-like" and completely unnatural. Dermal fillers, such as Perlane, Restylane and Juvederm, can combat aging around the lips and mouth, but patients are afraid of looking abnormal or fake.

The truth is, most of our patients are between the ages of 40 and 60, and they have the treatment to restore their lips to a more youthful appearance. Our patients do not want the lips overfilled and, with proper technique, there's very little risk of "Hollywood lips." Lip enhancement, combined with softening of vertical lip lines, can remove years from your appearance in a natural way.

The gold standard for augmenting the lip is the use of hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm, which last six to twelve months. The treatment is quick, with minimal discomfort. Occasionally, patients experience a bit of bruising around the injection site, but this lasts only a few days. Our doctors and nurse injectors are well versed in the newest injection techniques and can give you the best options for restoring your lips to their desired appearance.

We encourage you to visit any of our four offices in Maryland, Virginia or West Virginia for a free cosmetic evaluation. Dr. Rosenberg, Dr. McNeill or our experienced RNs will explain the options for facial fillers and help you choose the best treatment for your desired goals.
