This helps prevent overfilling the area or losing the natural shape of the lips by adding too much at one time. Many clients require additional treatments to reach their goals. Once goals are reached, they are typically maintained with .5 ml ever 6-8 months.
  • Please allow 2 weeks before evaluating results. If there are any questions or concerns about results, please contact us at (610) 393-1253. If you desire additional filler to the area treated, please allow 4 weeks between appointment times to allow full tissue recovery.
