LipLase is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that enhances the lips so that they have a fuller and more natural appearance. This process using laser energy and is done via the regeneration of collagen. The treatment is performed from the interior of the mouth and the exterior lip area. No injections are necessary, no foreign materials are utilized, and patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after receiving the treatment with little to no side effects. The LipLase lip enhancement treatment fills, plumps, and rejuvenates lips while also defining shape.
Once you reach 30 years of age, you will lose as much as one percent of collagen production annually. To fight this, LipLase utilizes a laser that heats the deepest layers of the skin and stimulates the production of collagen. We have the ability to treat the lips as well as the surrounding skin, in addition to the inner lips. By targeting all aspects of the lips, we are able to create smoother, tighter, and fuller lips that provide a much more youthful appearance.
LipLase treatment takes roughly 20 minutes, so it is quick, and it is also comfortable. No numbing is required, but it is available if patients prefer it—and this can take place a few minutes before the actual treatment takes place. Most patients report that the treatment feels like hot water being slowly dripped onto their lips. This heat may be felt for up to 30 minutes following the treatment. Best of all, there is no risk of bruising or downtime.
It is important to keep your lips as moist as possible following the LipLase treatment. Your lips may slightly peel after the treatment, but this should only occur for a couple of days. Since there is zero downtime, you can wear chapstick, lip gloss, and lipstick immediately after receiving the treatment, allowing you to show off your fresher, younger looking lips for a night on the town the same day!
For optimal results, it is recommended to receive at least three or four treatments. Since this process stimulates the natural production of collagen, it is encouraged to receive maintenance treatment every once in a while for longer lasting results.
