How to Achieve Natural-Looking Lip Filler

Lifted Logic

Lip filler treatment at Renew in OKC

Overdone lips went out of style several years ago. For a while, unnaturally large lips were a desirable look. As time went on, “duck lips” became less and less ideal. Trends that praise extreme measures like “duck lips” don’t tend to stand the test of time. Natural-looking beauty, on the other hand, will always be in vogue.

That’s why, at Renew Wellness & Aesthetics, we prefer a more subtle approach to cosmetic treatments. We offer lip filler near Edmond to a wide variety of patients, but if you’re worried you’ll be left with overfilled lips, you can set those concerns aside.

We are committed to delivering natural, conservative results that complement your facial features—but never overpower them. Every patient has their own set of preferences when it comes to their look. Our expert staff will listen closely and work with you to learn your preferences in order to achieve your desired results. 

The Lip Filler Basics

For newcomers, the world of cosmetics can be confusing. The technology used in many aesthetic treatments is always evolving, which is great for the quality of our results, but  it is a bit overwhelming for patients.

With all sorts of terminology like “injectables,” “dermal filler,” and “Botox®” floating around, it is so easy to get lost. So, let’s start with the basics.

What is lip filler?

Lip filler is a fluid that mainly contains hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in your body and helps to keep your skin looking hydrated, healthy, and youthful. Using a syringe, the filler gel is injected into the lips to add or restore volume. This volume lasts anywhere between 9 and 18 months.

As we age, many components of the body slowly decline, including the concentration of hyaluronic acid. Our bones also shrink as we get older, as does the protective layer of subcutaneous fat. For this reason, adding filler to sunken or wrinkled areas can rejuvenate the skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Is lip filler the same as Botox®?

Lip filler and Botox® are not the same. Lip filler is made of hyaluronic acid whereas Botox® is a neuromodulator. Hyaluronic acid is injected to “fill up” space and increase volume. Neuromodulators like Botox® (as well as Dysport® and Daxxify®) are injected to prevent muscles from moving, which disrupts the formation of wrinkles.

Botox® and filler are entirely different approaches to similar issues as well as different ones. One option may be better suited for your concerns than the other, or a combination of the two could be just what you need to rejuvenate your appearance.

If you are still feeling a bit lost, that’s okay! Renew Wellness & Aesthetics has many resources for learning more about the treatments we offer, like our blog. Also, we are always more than happy to take your calls or have you come in to discuss your options and questions.

The Mistake Many People Make With Lip Filler

We are able to achieve beautifully full lips while maintaining a natural look. So, why are so many others unable to do so? Extensive training is very important for cosmetic injectors. At Renew Wellness & Aesthetics, we never stop prioritizing education and training opportunities for our staff.

Many people make the mistake of choosing the wrong injector for their lip filler near Edmond. Often, injectors with less training will offer incredible discounts on their treatments. People can fall into this trap when they are just trying to find an affordable option. Be wary of especially low-priced lip filler treatments, as they are likely lacking proper experience.

If cost is a concern, please look into our flexible financing solutions. We know insurance doesn’t usually cover aesthetic treatments, which can be a barrier for many people. Renew Wellness & Aesthetics believes in the power of feeling confident in your skin, which is why we are happy to discuss CareCredit with you.

Our Approach to Lip Filler Near Edmond

The approach at Renew Wellness & Aesthetics prioritizes facial balance and training for our injectors. We pair our professional expertise with a personal consideration of your overall facial features to achieve natural-looking lip filler results.

Facial Balancing

Achieving natural-looking filler requires a keen, artistic eye. Sometimes, a person’s facial balance could benefit from multiple injection sites.

Injecting just one part of your face doesn’t always look the most natural. At a consultation, we might recommend filler in other parts of the face to create symmetry with your newly enhanced lips.


Every person is different in terms of what will look best. Some individuals have lost volume in their lips with age, while others had less to start with. Genetics, as well as habits like smoking and sunbathing, can impact the volume in your face and lips.

Training and Education

Our injectors attend training all over the country and internationally, learning from the best of the best. They are Dr. Julie Shelley; Jessie Hammock, RN; and Ashley Hale, LE. Feel free to check out their credentials and get to know them a bit better on our website.

Their collective understanding of facial anatomy and the rheology of different fillers is essential to our results—not to mention their extensive education and experience in the artistry of achieving facial balance and natural results.

Reducing Discomfort or Pain

Many patients interested in lip filler near Edmond feel nervous about the possibility of pain. The general consensus is that lip filler is not painful. In fact, most of our patients report feeling much less pain than they expected.

However, we understand that pain is a highly subjective experience. That’s why Renew Wellness & Aesthetics has several anesthetic options. We offer a topical numbing agent, injected numbing agent (dental block), and ProNox.

ProNox is an inhalant of nitrous oxide and oxygen that makes you feel like you’ve had a few glasses of wine. It helps to minimize anxiety about treatment and wears off after about 10 minutes.

Additionally, most fillers contain lidocaine, which is a numbing agent. That means as you get filler, it will become more and more comfortable.

If you are nervous about dermal fillers near Edmond, please let your provider know! We want you to feel at ease and confident going into your treatment. Your comfort is our priority, and we want to make every effort to improve your experience.

The Benefits of Lip Filler

Lip filler is well known for increasing the fullness of the lips, but it has more than just one benefit. Aside from fullness, filler can be injected to balance any unevenness in the lips.

It is not uncommon for one side of the mouth to be slightly higher than the other. Injecting lip filler is a great way to minimize the appearance of a crooked mouth. Well-trained injectors can easily manipulate and smooth the filler to create the most even look possible.


It also reduces the appearance of vertical lip lines, smoker’s lines, and marionette lines. The added volume helps to fill these creased areas. On top of that, because lip filler consists of hyaluronic acid, it makes the lips appear more moisturized.

If thin or thinning lips have bothered you for a while, the staff at our medical spa is here for you with lip filler near Edmond. The main benefit of lip filler should be the way it makes you feel. We prioritize your desires and concerns.

You will leave Renew Wellness & Aesthetics with a new sense of self-esteem and improved confidence.
