A New Treatment for Unmissable, Kissable Lips
Even if you want a fuller and more noticeable pout, you might have dismissed lip augmentation as a treatment option. The current cosmetic standard celebrates a larger-than-life look, and that doesn’t work for patients who want natural-looking, subtle change.
That’s why there’s Love Your Lips™. The treatment, offered exclusively to Vancouver patients at Heights Laser Centre, is a mini-lip augmentation that improves shape, symmetry, and fullness without dramatically altering your features. The procedure provides an attractive outcome—not a drastic change.
Dr. Perhez Jaffer, an expert in non-surgical aesthetic treatments with over 13 years of experience, is the creator of Love Your Lips™. After years of performing traditional lip augmentation procedures, he found that many of his patients were responding more positively to treatments that provided targeted and precise change. He developed Love Your Lips™ to give patients outcomes that were more in line with their aesthetic goals.
The Love Your Lips™ Process
Heights Laser Centre is a physician-led practice that provides patients with a relaxing atmosphere when they’re receiving treatment. Dr. Jaffer conducts all of the injectable procedures for our patients. He provides care in a calming and compassionate manner, and he continually trains in the latest aesthetic methods to improve patient comfort and results.
Visiting Our Medical Spa
During your initial consultation, Dr. Jaffer will ask you about your cosmetic concerns and the results you are hoping to achieve with treatment. Many of his Vancouver patients visit Heights Laser Centre specifically to get a fuller, more noticeable pout. Others have the general goal of looking younger or more attractive. Dr. Jaffer will often recommend Love Your Lips™ to both groups of patients. Because it provides a more natural-looking outcome and is more affordable than a standard lip augmentation, it can be an ideal entry point for cosmetic improvement.
Dr. Jaffer will examine your lips to determine the amount and type of dermal filler to use in your customized treatment. He employs premium fillers based on hyaluronic acid for the process—usually JUVÉDERM® by Allergan or Belotero(R) by Merz. In addition to adding volume, these products have a natural-feeling consistency and can help your lips retain moisture and softness.
Dr. Jaffer follows a conservative aesthetic approach with Love Your Lips™. Through years of experience, he has found that “less is more” for Vancouver patients who want natural-looking results. You can expect to take “before” photos during your initial consultation and at each step in the treatment process. This will help you see the subtle benefits that Love Your Lips™ is providing over time.
Treatment with Love Your Lips™
Love Your Lips™ is a non-invasive procedure that uses injectable dermal fillers to create a noticeable, attractive difference in the way your lips look. During the treatment, Dr. Jaffer will:
- Apply a topical anesthetic to numb the lips for a pain-free experience
- Inject a small amount of filler to achieve the fullness and contours you desire
- Add filler to the middle of your lips to give you a more pronounced pout
- If necessary, address the outer portions of your lips – This technique can improve a thin-lipped appearance
Patients frequently remark on Dr. Jaffer’s gentle and efficient approach. His skill and years spent in practice improve both their experience and their outcome.
After Love Your Lips™: Recuperation and Results
Immediately following treatment, Vancouver patients can expect some swelling and bruising. Both symptoms will be mild to moderate and should not last more than seven days. These minor conditions can easily be hidden with chapstick.
For the first 24 hours after your appointment, you should not drink from a straw. Heights Laser Centre will offer you other post-treatment guidelines.
Our practice is committed to your care and satisfaction. Two days after your procedure, a team member will call you to see how you are doing and ask if you have any questions. In your follow-up appointment, you will have a set of “after” photos taken and meet with Dr. Jaffer. He will examine your lips and see how you are feeling about your treatment.
Because of Dr. Jaffer’s conservative approach, which ensures incremental change, some patients opt to have more filler added at this appointment. Others choose to wait and re-treat after several months when the initial filler’s effects have subsided. Whichever your case may be, you can expect shapelier, more noticeable, and natural-looking lips with your treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions: What People Really Want to Know About Love Your Lips™
When will I see fuller, poutier lips?
Love Your Lips™ patients in Vancouver should note improvement immediately after their treatment.
Is Love Your Lips™ a painful procedure?
Patients commonly describe Love Your Lips™ as a painless process. Dr. Jaffer will use a topical numbing cream on your lips before your treatment. As with any procedure, he and our team will strive to make you as comfortable as possible during your care.
Is there any swelling with Love Your Lips™?
Moderate swelling is a common side effect of mini-lip augmentation. This swelling should dissipate within about 1-2 days.
Is there any downtime when getting lip injections?
Although there are only a few small side effects, there is overall little to no downtime. This one of the best things about having lip injections at Heights Laser Centre.
How long will results last?
You can expect to enjoy the benefits of a Love Your Lips™ treatment for 3-4 months. The timeline will depend on the filler that Dr. Jaffer uses for your procedure; different products have different lengths of duration.
When can I normally kiss again after receiving lip injections?
Dr. Jaffer does recommend that you wait at least 1-2 days before participating in any “heavy” kissing. This is because the dermal filler will need adequate time to settle and integrate with your lip tissue.
