What are Lip Fillers injections?
Dermal fillers that treat wrinkles are also used in lip augmentation Chicago. Lip fillers in Chicago are one of the most used cosmetic treatment. Each of the dermal fillers provides a similar degree of result to help with those lip lines. They smooth the skin around the mouth, disguise the common signs of aging, and give the lips a boost in volume. Once the hyaluronic acid dermal filler has been injected into the skin area, it will gradually begin to support the tissues in the lip. Then, it begins to form a more voluminous shape. Everything you need for your aesthetic goals.
All the fillers used at Elite Spa are safe FDA approved and composed of hyaluronic acid. And the most popular fillers used are:

How do Lip Fillers work?
Lip Fillers in Chicago are used daily by millions of patients worldwide because of the safety they represent. In addition, the majority contains polymethylmethacrylate, a synthetic substance in the form of granules that, when the collagen is absorbed, is preserved in the lips and has high impact support properties. This is the most transparent of the plastics, resistant to weathering and ultraviolet rays. And it guarantees long-lasting results. It is due to the diverse properties that it provides a volume effect on the size of the lips.

What to expect
How is the first visit?
Looking for the best doctor in Chicago? At Elite Chicago Spa, we offer attentive care. During the initial visit, the doctor will examine the shape of the lips, mouth and their proportion to the rest of the face. It is precisely this last aspect that allows a natural and aesthetically pleasing result.
The second step will be to explain to the patient the various techniques available to achieve lip augmentation, and then the respective advantages and disadvantages.
Prepare for the procedure
As in any other procedure it is very important that you prepare yourself before going in. It is something pretty simple. Some weeks before try to lay off of supplements. Do not use any creams or things near the area that’ll be affected. If you want to lessen bruising you could apply some oinments and finally a day before do not drink any alcoholic beverages. All this will help you ease the recovery time and will make sure the lip filler procedure goes smoothly.
Results and duration
The results last between 5 and 6 months, but the effect and duration may be subjective depending on the individual characteristics of the patient (age, skin type, smoke, sun exposure, etc.). The duration of the effect will depend mainly on the brand of hyaluronic acid used.
The first days after the treatment, the volume of the lips may appear larger than desired or even exaggerated due to the swelling after the injection. It can also happen that after the first week the volume acquired decreases due to the integration of the hyaluronic acid with the tissues.
Side effects and complications
With our treatment you will not need a Chicago plastic surgeon. Our treatment is a completely safe cosmetic procedure. All of our elements are FDA approved. The procedure is extremely safe with only very rare instances of any additional complications. Other than the standard bruising and swelling, there are some potential complications:
- Allergic Reaction to the Filler
- Implant Rejections
- Surgical Infection
- Lumps Under the Skin
Is Lip Augmentation done with a fat transfer procedure?
It is not. When you decide to have lip augmentation with fat transfer procedure, the plastic surgeon will get fat tissue from buttocks, stomach or thighs via liposuction. This fat will be then transfer to your lips. We use FDA approved Injections.
Lip augmentation with dermal fillers is a safe and quick procedure. Recovery time is minimal after injections, with most patients returning to daily activities within two to five days. Lips may feel fuller than expected after injection due to swelling. But, once swelling subsides, patients can enjoy fuller lips.
After the procedure, avoid rubbing the injected area. You can apply lipstick as long as it is for personal use, i.e. not used by another person. This will avoid contamination and therefore infection. Also, avoid long exposure to the sun.
All lip fillers are FDA approved. So, it is a very safe procedure.
At Elite Chicago Spa, under no circumstances do we recommend liquid silicone gel injections. It is illegal and it can do terrible damage to your face.
What are the components of the injections?
They are basically two ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid which is a complex polysaccharide (sugar) and Lidocaine which makes the injection almost painless.
Why is Lip Augmentation so popular?
Lip augmentation is commonly used to restore thin lips to their former volume. This implies that there is an alteration in the way the lips and face feel and look. The idea is to give a more youthful appearance. This procedure is a very personal decision and there are different reasons why people undergo this treatment. Many people wish to regain elasticity and rejuvenate their face. As the body ages, proteins, collagen, among others, are not produced in high quantities. The truth is that collagen is partially responsible for giving your lips the plump appearance you desire. But as you age your lips will become thinner and less pronounced. On the other hand, when elastin and hyaluronic acid production is reduced, lips stop retaining moisture. This causes a negative lips appearance.
These are some of the aesthetic reasons why we resort to lip augmentation. However, the popularity of the procedure is largely due to the noticeable changes in the face. Also, this is a non-surgical procedure so there is no need to take long periods of rest. Finally, lip augmentation provides extensive and complete results.
Schedule Your First Treatment
In our Spa we use a variety of filling techniques including specialized small needles. In addition, cannula approach and pillow techniques. Each lip is customized to each patient’s goal.
There are alternatives to lip fillers such as the use of fat as well as lip implants. These are a long-term alternative to lip fillers and for patients with very thin lips. Fat can be used to augment lip size for thinner lips and is usually done in combination with other procedures.
