Here at Ethos Aesthetics & Wellness, we understand that lips are a focal point of the face that strongly influence your appearance.
More voluminous, symmetrical lips can create facial harmony and balance while conveying youthfulness and beauty. However, aging, genetics and other factors often lead to thinner, less defined lips over time.
Fortunately, Dr. Soni offers advanced injectable lip augmentation procedures to add volume and shape for naturally beautiful lips.
Dr. Soni relies on dermal filler injectables like Juvederm and Restylane to expertly reshape and contour the lips. These hyaluronic acid gels integrate into the dermal layer of the skin, providing immediate plumping, definition and hydration benefits that visibly restore lip structure.
During your consultation at Ethos Aesthetics & Wellness, Dr. Soni will assess your facial anatomy, lip shape, volume loss and aesthetic goals. He will then develop a customized treatment plan to meet your needs, which may involve:
The filler injection process takes about 30 minutes to complete and requires only a simple local anesthetic. You’ll notice an instant improvement in the look and feel of your lips. While initial results will last 6-9 months, repeat treatments can extend your transformation.
Lip plumping glosses feature special ingredients that create a tingling or swelling sensation upon application to physically expand the lips. This enhances their natural shape and volume while smoothing fine lines. Common plumping agents include:
When layered over lip fillers, plumping glosses can maximize their volumizing effects while keeping lips hydrated with continued use. The gloss also reflects light to make your lips appear smoother and fuller.
Dr. Soni may recommend applying a lip plumper gloss 2-3 times per day after receiving injectable fillers. This helps preserve the augmented shape and hydration from the hyaluronic acid filler.
Getting lip fillers and regularly using a plumping gloss offers cumulative and synergistic perks including:
With countless lip glosses on the market, it can be tricky finding one that delivers legit plumping action without irritation. Here are the key features we recommend looking for:
Focus on glosses with a creamy thickness that adheres well to lips and avoids any severe stinging or burning. Always do a spot test before applying a new lip plumper gloss to your entire lips.
To get the best lip filler results and healing, Ethos Aesthetics & Wellness provides these post-treatment care instructions:
Following Dr. Soni’s aftercare guidance allows the lip tissues to fully integrate the filler material. Be sure to come in for follow up appointments to monitor your progress.
Depending on the filler formula used, lip augmentation results typically persist for 6 months up to 1 year. The gel material gets naturally absorbed into the body over this timeframe. Maintenance touch up injections can keep your lips looking fabulous.
Using a daily lip plumping gloss extends results by continuously stimulating blood flow and hydrating the lips. Just remember to schedule regular appointments with us to have the dermal filler replaced.
Lip fillers come with minimal risks of side effects including:
Serious side effects like allergic reaction are very rare when an experienced injector like Dr. Soni administers the fillers. If you do experience concerning symptoms, call our office right away. Otherwise, side effects should clear up quickly.
Pricing depends on the type/amount of filler used and number of syringes needed to achieve your desired outcome. On average, lip augmentation costs range from:
Keep in mind lip filler results only last about 6 months to a year. Maintenance injections are necessary to sustain your beautiful lips. Thankfully, lip plumping gloss can help extend your results while adding extra fullness and hydration daily.
Full, smooth lips convey youthfulness and sensuality unlike anything else. At Ethos Aesthetics & Wellness, Dr. Soni specializes in lip reshaping and rejuvenation through dermal fillers.
For maximized effects, he recommends complementing the injections with a daily lip plumping gloss.
Together, lip fillers and plumping gloss offer the ultimate combo for supple, pillowy lips that complement your facial features.

Below are answers to common questions about getting lip fillers and using lip plumping glosses for optimized and safe enhancement:
During your visit, Dr. Soni will evaluate your lip anatomy, shape, symmetry, volume loss and cosmetic goals. He will then develop a custom filler injection plan to meet your needs and explain the process so you feel fully informed and comfortable moving forward.
You’ll see about 80% of the total effect right after your injection appointment as the filler material integrates into the lips. Remaining swelling dissipates within 72 hours revealing your complete lip transformation.
Yes, most patients notice their lips feel smoother, fuller and softer to the touch after filler injections. The added volume also reduces fine wrinkles and lines around the lip area.
Individuals prone to cold sores/fever blisters can receive lip fillers but need to take an antiviral medication before and after to minimize risks. Let Dr. Soni know your medical history so the proper precautions can be taken.
When properly placed along the lip border by Dr. Soni, dermal filler injections will not interfere with dental implants, crowns, veneers or other oral health treatments.
Yes, lip injections would not be recommended if you have severe allergies/sensitivities, certain bleeding disorders, active skin inflammation or infection around the mouth, or unrealistic expectations for the procedure.
We do not advise making your own lip plumper gloss at home as it’s challenging to safely replicate the formula, sanitation standards and effectiveness of professional cosmetic glosses. Purchase high quality products instead of attempting home recipes.
For best plumping action and hydration, apply your lip gloss 2-3 times per day. Reapply anytime your lips feel dry. Avoid overusing to prevent irritation.
Dr. Soni recommends waiting 2-3 days after your injections before applying a lip plumper to allow the initial swelling to resolve. This prevents over-plumping the area.
Unfortunately, there is no permanent lip plumper. Even the longest lasting glosses require periodic touch ups. Reapplication ensures your lips stay maximally smooth, hydrated and plump. Carry your gloss for easy use throughout the day.
Yes! The plumping action stretches and smooths out fine lines while the added moisture fills them in. With continued use, wrinkles become far less noticeable. It perfectly complements lip filler effects.
