Lip Fillers & Lip Injections by Dr. Praven Chetty in Kelowna, BC

There are several benefits of lip enhancement procedures that our patients can enjoy. First, lip augmentation at our Kelowna skin care clinic is always performed as a minimally invasive procedure using a dermal filler and requires no incisions, general anesthesia, or downtime. Lip injection patients can immediately return to their daily routines after their appointment if they choose.

Lip fillers also offer instant results, increasing fullness and improving signs of aging, such as perioral or smoker’s lines around the mouth. At Cerulean Medical Institute, we use the most advanced injectable lip filler products available, such as Juvederm Volbella, to ensure longer-lasting results. In addition to the products’ increased longevity, lip injection treatments stimulate new collagen production, meaning that you can enjoy naturally youthful and beautiful lips. We also use a topical numbing cream to ensure you’re completely comfortable during this cosmetic procedure.

"I finally have beautiful lips thank you to Dr. Chetty. The whole experience was wonderful, Dr. Chetty took time to explain everything to me, he didn`t fill them all the way, it took two visits to get beautiful lips, so natural. Too funny I get so many compliments on the way I look, no one knows, it was a gradual change. Incredible experience I would recommend Dr Chetty and Isabel to anyone that is interested in having beautiful lips. They are very caring, true perfectionists and wonderful people!”
