Lip Fillers

Many people out there suffer from “bird lips”, which is a negative way to view thinner lips. While this is primarily caused by genetics, your lips can lose their plumpness over time. Dr. Catharine Crawford’s Prosilience Studio in Arlington, MA offers our Boston area patients Lip Fillers to enhance their natural beauty by improving the volume in their lips for a lovely pout. Please keep reading below to decide if this is the right treatment for your needs.

lip fillers- what

What are Lip Fillers?

Lip Filler is a non-surgical treatment option that improves the appearance and volume of your lips using dermal filler composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA mimics a substance that is naturally produced by your body to help your skin stretch and flex, while at the same time, preventing wrinkles and fine lines. When injected into your lips, the synthetic HA filler gives your lips a more plump appearance. Unlike surgical lip implants that can extrude or become exposed in some patients, Lip Fillers create a natural look and feel and will eventually dissolve into your body over time if you are unhappy with your lip shape.

What are the benefits of Lip Fillers?

Lip Fillers in Boston can provide optimal results for patients looking to achieve a more attractive look with full lips. Some of the benefits we have seen from this treatment include:

  • Increased lip volume and shape to thinning lips
  • Reduces the appearance of volume loss

First Steps

What’s the First Step?

If you’re looking into fuller and poutier lips in the Boston area, your first step is to schedule an initial consultation at Prosilience Studio with Dr. Catharine Crawford. When you come in for your appointment, you will be able to ask all of your questions related to the treatment and have a better understanding of how it works. She will evaluate your lips and ask you questions about your medical history. It is important to be open and honest when discussing these matters with Dr. Crawford, as it helps her avoid any unnecessary risks or complications.

After the two of you decide on the appropriate lip filler and the direction of your treatment, Dr. Crawford will create your procedure plan. When you are happy with the plan, you will be able to receive your lip enhancement treatment immediately after your consultation, or if you’d prefer a different time, our Patient Coordinator will be able to help you set up your appointment and the total cost.

We will also provide you with some instructions to follow which may include eliminating blood-thinning drugs such as aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil, and vitamin E, as well as alcohol ten days prior to your lip injection.


What to expect on the day of a Lip Filler treatment

When it’s time for your Lip Fillers, you can expect a comfortable and efficient experience. We will apply a topical anesthetic to your lips so you will be comfortable during the procedure.

Once your lips are adequately numbed, Dr. Crawford will carefully administer the chosen Lip Filler injections using a fine needle. The fillers are placed with precision to gently accentuate the vermilion border, cupid’s bow, philtrum (the area between the upper lip and the nose), philtrum ridges, and oral commissures. Her skill, experience, and artistic eye will ensure that the injections are precise and the filler is distributed evenly so you don’t have an “overly done” look because of too much filler, and provide you with a beautifully enhanced appearance.

The entire process is very quick and you can expect to see immediate results.

Lip Filler recovery

After your Lip Filler treatment, you will be provided with an ice pack to gently apply to the treated area to reduce some of the swelling and discomfort. Overall, the Lip Filler procedure is quick, easy, and relatively painless, and you should be able to resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure is done.
