Lip injections are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments Dr. Michael Kam performs at Onyx Medical Aesthetics. Lip injections using Hyaluronic Acid based fillers such as Juvederm, Teosyal, Restylane, or Perlane adds volume, shapes lips, and give you that fuller, sexier look.
Dr. Kam believes that his results should look always natural, and never artificial. Too often, many injectors “over-fill” to accommodate their clients’ requests for bigger lips. Practices like this can lead to the “duck-bill” shaped lips that have given cosmetic lip injections a bad reputation. Dr. Kam discusses expectations with his clients, and offers results that are proportionate, natural looking, and beautiful.
Cosmetic Lip Injections take approximately 20 minutes to administer and shape the product. Upon arrival Dr. Kam will give you a small icepack that you apply to your lips to cool them down. This acts to numb the nerves so that the treatment is as comfortable as possible. The cold also causes blood vessels to constrict, thus significantly decreasing swelling and bruising after the lip injections. In some cases Dr. Kam can also apply a numbing cream to make your experience more comfortable.
After the treatment you will be asked to stay in the clinic and apply an ice pack for about 10 minutes, once again this is to help keep the swelling to a minimum. However, you should expect to have some swelling after the treatment. This usually goes away after about 48-72 hours.
All consultations at Onyx Medical Aesthetics are complimentary and completed by Dr. Kam personally. At his clinics, Dr. Kam is the only cosmetic injector. Having injected thousands of lips over the past 12 years, he is able to guarantee customer satisfaction, and most importantly safety.
