What Is NYC Lip Augmentation?
At Park Ave Derm, we offer specialized treatments in lip augmentation, including lip fillers and the Botox® lip flip. Lip fillers are well-regarded for delivering immediate, visible improvements in lip volume and definition. Our physicians at Park Ave Derm will work with you to address your lip concerns while keeping within your natural features to allow for the most natural results. The Botox® lip flip is another tool used at Park Ave Derm by precisely placing neuromodulators (Botox®, Dysport®, Jeuveau®) that gently roll the lip outward, giving a fuller look without increasing volume. In fact, we often times will use both techniques in the same patients for optimal results.
Lip Enhancement Options at Park Ave Derm
At Park Ave Derm, we offer several options for lip enhancement:
Lip fillers are injectable treatments that provide immediate volume and fullness to the lips. Our expert dermatologists use only the highest quality hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, which are renowned for their safety, efficacy, and natural-looking results. The procedure is minimally invasive and requires little to no downtime, so clients can enjoy their rejuvenated smile almost immediately. Patients may experience some swelling and bruising which should not last more than 2-3 days. Lip fillers not only enhance the size of the lips but also improve their overall shape and symmetry, ensuring a harmonious balance with your facial features. Each lip augmentation procedure is customized to the client’s preferences and aesthetic features. Lip fillers provide immediate results that last about 10-12 months in most patients.
At Park Ave Derm, we offer lip fillers from the following lines:
- Revanesse RHA®
Botox® Lip Flip
Unlike fillers, the Botox® lip flip involves the strategic administration of Botox® (or Dysport® or Jeuveau®) into the muscles around the mouth. This relaxes the muscles, causing the lip to gently roll outward and upward, giving the illusion of a fuller upper lip without adding volume. Ideal for those seeking a more subtle enhancement, the Botox® Lip Flip is a quick and relatively painless procedure with results that can last several months. Our experienced dermatologists meticulously assess each client’s facial anatomy to ensure a natural and flattering enhancement that aligns with the individual’s aesthetic goals.
The Gummy Smile
Neuromodulators are also used at Park Ave Derm to help create your very best possible smile. Many people suffer from something called a “gummy smile.” This occurs when the smile muscles pull the upper lip too high above the border of the teeth and gums, creating a smile showing too much of the gums. This feature will be assessed during your visit.
If your injector sees fit, they can place Dysport® or Botox® into those muscles of the upper lip/nose area to help lower your lip to avoid excessive showing of your gums. The end result is a more harmonious smile. There is no downtime associated with this procedure and pain is minimal. Results can last from 4-6 months.

Lip Augmentation in New York city Procedure Overview
On the day of your filler procedure, we ask you to come to our office with clean, healthy lips and skin around the mouth. Do not wear makeup, lipstick, or lipgloss to your procedure. Your injector will review the details of your lip augmentation procedure and answer any final questions you have.
Injectable Lip Augmentation
Like most injectable treatments, lip augmentation and lip flip are relatively quick and painless treatments. Many of our injectables contain lidocaine to reduce discomfort. The initial procedure may take 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the extent of your procedure. Touch-up treatments typically take 15 minutes and should occur at least 1 week after your initial procedure.
As injectable fillers require a small amount of downtime, patients can resume most normal activities immediately. Eating should be avoided for 3 hours after your procedure since your lips will likely be numb. Side effects may include redness, swelling, or bruising; however, these effects should resolve within 48-72 hours. Cold packs may help alleviate these symptoms used for only 3 minutes at a time (to avoid thermal injury) and up to 3-4 times a day.
When Will I See My NYC Lip Augmentation Results?
Following lip augmentation with fillers, most patients experience immediate enhancement. There will be some swelling after your procedure that should resolve within 2-3 days. Depending on the product used, individual results vary but typically last up to a year.
After a Botox® Lip Flip, targeted muscles begin relaxing within 1 week, enhancing the appearance of the lips. Full results are visible in a week and last three to six months. Similar timelines exist for any treatment with neurotoxin i.e. gummy smile toxin.
How Long Will My NYC Lip Enhancement Results Last?
Lip augmentation results will vary, depending on the extent of the procedure, your skincare regimen and sun avoidance techniques. Dermal fillers offer temporary results; however, some lip fillers often last for one year. Lip flip and gummy smile treatments with neuromodulators typically last three to six months. To maintain your plump, youthful lips, your injectors at Park Ave Derm will help you set an appropriate schedule for touch-ups.
To maintain your softer, brighter lips from your chemical peel, you can repeat chemical peels several times per year. If your provider recommends more aggressive laser resurfacing of the perioral area around your lips then you can expect significantly more downtime, however much more significant results. Please see the ECO2 and/or ResurFX page for more information regarding laser resurfacing for deeper lines around the mouth.
How Much Does Lip Augmentation Cost in Manhattan?
New York City lip enhancement procedure costs will vary by patient, depending on your individual needs and goals, your particular treatment, and the expertise of your provider. During your consultation, one of our experts will determine the scope of your lip enhancement procedure and estimate your cost.
Alternative Lip Enhancement Treatment – Lip Chemical Peel and Laser Resurfacing in NYC
Apart from our injectable lip augmentation services, we also provide lip enhancement treatments like lip chemical peels and laser resurfacing, which rejuvenate the skin around the lips, address fine lines, and enhance the overall texture. With these forms of treatment, even the deepest lines can be addressed.
The skin of the lips is thinner and more delicate than the rest of our facial skin. They tend to become dry and chapped as they don’t have sebaceous glands to help protect and condition the skin, especially as skin matures.
Chemical peels are a gentle method of exfoliating the lips and the skin around the mouth, and they don’t risk causing injury to the lips like harsh scrubs do. While lip peels gently remove dead skin cells, they also promote cellular turnover to enhance the brightness and smoothness of the lips and brightness. At Park Ave Derm we use Glytone chemical peels utilizing specific types of peels solely meant for treatment of the lips.
During your lip chemical peel, it’s typical to experience a slight tingling, sting, or warmth. However, the sensations quickly diminish as the peel is neutralized. Following your lip chemical peel, your lips may feel dry or tight for a few days. While the peeling process does not hurt, it is essential to avoid picking at the flaking skin, allowing it to shed on its own.
It’s important to thoroughly adhere to your skincare instructions following a chemical peel to ensure optimal healing. After a lip chemical peel, you may experience dry or tight lips for a few days while the skin peels. During this healing phase, it is important to use ointments such as Dr. Roger’s Healing Balm or Vaseline to ensure proper healing of the area. You should experience softer, brighter lips in one to two days following your chemical peel.
