Removing silicone in the lips in Los Angeles

Silicone can cause lifelong problems with your lips. Avoid these in favor of HA fillers.

Lip injections

I would avoid silicon lip injections if possible. I have seen a lot of issues with free silicone around the face, and many times it is difficult to impossible to remove.

Depending on your examination, microdroplet Silikon-1000 may be considered for permanent lip augmentation.

In our practice, we prefer using Silikon-1000, an off-label filler for permanent results, for natural-looking lip augmentation. Treatments may be performed with topical anesthetic, and there is typically no downtime. The serial-puncture, microdroplet technique must be used, and the experience of your surgeon or dermatologist is important for achieving favorable results.

Hope this helps you.
