Lip Filler Treatments
💋Add Volume, Improve Shape, and get Natural-Looking Results
Lip fillers in Des Moines are a quick and effective lip augmentation solution and one of the most popular treatments requested at Coachlight. These injectable products volumize thin lips, add lip definition, and smooth away perioral lip lines.
Our Lip Fillers
During a consultation at Coachlight, your aesthetic provider will assess what your goals are and make a product recommendation that will best suit your needs. We carry filler brands and options for lip filler including Juvederm, Restylane, and Versa.
All of our lip fillers are FDA-approved. These high-quality fillers plump up thin lips to make them look fuller. They can also be used to fill thin lines around the lips, which are often called smoker’s lines or lipstick lines.

How Do Lip Fillers Work?
As our skin loses collagen, elasticity, and volume with age, so do our lips. This causes sagging, wrinkles, and a lack of definition.
Juvéderm Ultra, Juvéderm Volbella, and Restylane Kysse are composed of synthetic hyaluronic acid. This substance bonds with water molecules to effectively create a new volume in the skin. This restores an appealing pout to the lips and smooths away wrinkles.
Unlike surgery, lip fillers are minimally invasive. This means that patients can avoid the scalpels, incisions, and implants associated with surgical lip augmentation.

Am I a Good Candidate for Lip Filler?
It’s important to remember that some people can be allergic to the ingredients used in lip fillers. Because of this, when you come to us to inquire about our lip fillers, we sit down with you for a consultation to ensure that the treatment is safe for you.
During this consultation in Des Moines office, we ask you about your aesthetic goals and your complete medical history, including any allergies you may have. We inform you about every step of the lip filler process.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, we recommend you don’t undergo lip filler treatment. Instead, we will provide an alternate timeline for your procedure so it will be safe for you and your baby.
What Is the Treatment Process Like?
Lip filler treatment sessions in Des Moines are very simple and convenient. They typically do not last longer than an hour. During a session, the chosen filler product is injected into several areas for even results. Lip fillers contain a pain-numbing local anesthetic called lidocaine, which makes their application quite comfortable.
Lip Filler Aftercare
There is no downtime needed with this treatment, so you can return to work and your everyday schedule immediately. A small amount of swelling and bruising may be present for a time but will fade shortly.
We will offer instructions regarding a specific diet, exercise plan, and lifestyle for a week or two, which will limit the strain on your lip fillers. Following these directions will help you maintain optimal results.
Another treatment option that we offer for lip augmentation is called a “lip flip”. Rather than using a lip filler, this lip procedure features injections of Botox, a popular neuromodulator.
During a lip flip, Botox is injected into the Cupid’s bow area of the upper lip, along with the corners of the upper lip. This relaxes the muscles, which allows more of the upper lip to show, creating more volume. It can also address a gummy smile. The procedure only takes up to 20 minutes to perform.
The results of lip flip injections last for eight to twelve weeks; after this time, patients can return for maintenance treatments.
Lip “Pop” 😘
A lip “pop” is a frequently requested treatment at Coachlight for patients wanting a very subtle enhancement of their lips. A “Lip Pop” uses approximately 1/2 a syringe (.55 ml) of filler to help improve a patient’s overall shape, giving it a hydrated appearance and subtle volume. Your provider will recommend the best option based on your overall aesthetic goals.
How Much Do Lip Fillers Cost?
Every med spa offers lip fillers at a different price, so the med spa you choose will determine the overall cost. Cost also varies based on the filler product chosen and the number of syringes required to achieve the result you are seeking.
