About this Episode

Aesthetic injector Julia shares her deep expertise with plumping and reshaping the lips with fillers, which of the Juvederm & Restylane products are her favorites, and why you shouldn’t be afraid of getting your lips injected if you’re in the care of a trained, experienced injector.

She covers the latest trends including the Instagram-famous Russian lip technique (spoiler alert, it’s not a thing), the “lip flip,” how to avoid the “duck lips” look, and the refreshing new direction toward natural definition instead of just volume. Hear why Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Vollure, and Restylane Kysse are Julia’s favorite products to use and how she uses them differently to achieve the results her patients are asking for.

She takes us through potential side effects, the ways she helps “swellers” avoid swelling, and the secret trick the LJC team uses to stop bruising before it starts. You’ll learn what a typical lip filler treatment will cost, things to avoid the night before your appointment and the day after, and what to expect during the procedure.

Julia answers the number one question about lip injections and details the innovative options available at LJC for preventing pain, including ProNox, numbing cream, nerve blocks, or the handheld vibrating device used to distract your nerves from sending a pain signal.

Whether you are just considering lip injections or don’t know what you’d do without your routine lip filler fix, this conversation with Julia is essential listening for anyone interested in lip injections.
