Results that I can expect for collagen injections to the lips?

Collagen injections have largely been replaced by Hyaluronic Acids such as Restylane, Juvederm. The reason for this is that hyaluronic acids last longer. Collagen Lip Augmentation lasts 3-6 months and the hyaluronic acids can last from 6months to a year. This has been proven in head to head studies comparing them. Also, collagen injections usually require a skin test and time to wait for the results. There are some collagen injectables that don’t require a skin test and they have gained some popularity but not as much as hyaluronic acids. Importantly, you should go to someone who knows aesthetics and facial beauty. This will avoid results like the Octa-Mom, Meg Ryan, Heidi from the Hills, Lindsay Lohan, Brittany Murphy, etc. The reason for this is that our understanding of aesthetics is not solid at this point. We really don’t know how large the upper and lower lip should be.

Fat can also be used in the lips and when done right can last for years.  I came up with an exciting volumizing technique below.

I refined an amazing volumizing procedure called “the YoungLift”.  This is an innovative technique that volumizes your face to bring out the younger and natural you without looking like you had something done.  This is not a facelift and requires no incisions.  Only pinpoint puncture sites are used and these heal imperceptibly.  The YoungLift can be done without general anesthesia and without drains, and large bandages.  You also have a lot less downtime and discomfort compared with traditional facelift procedures.  Dr Young employs the very best techniques from around the world into one volumizing procedure and he uses his internationally acclaimed understanding of facial beauty to create the youthful volume you once had. The YoungLift techniques can help with filling up the lips as well.  You can great results with fat injections in the lips.

Dr Young is located in Bellevue near Seattle, Washington
