Restore Beautiful Plumb Lips
Lip filler treatment can help you get the beautiful plumb lips with the perfect pout
and restore lost volume and hydration. It can benefit both men and women!
With lip filler, there is an initial, immediate increase in volume, which then settles after 1-2 weeks. The filler integrates with the tissue and over time will gradually be broken down by natural hyaluronidase in the body. Lip filler usually lasts around 4-6 months, before the affect is gradually less noticeable. Lips are a very dynamic area of the face, and the muscles are frequently used during everyday life, and we like to use a softer filler for more natural results, so the filler will break down a little faster than other areas where there is less movement and a stronger filler is used, for example cheeks or temple.
Both cannulas and needles can be used for lip injections. They are different tools, both with pros and cons and suited for different needs and effects. I like needles for precise work and shaping, but cannulas have some advantages over needles, such as have blunt tips which lower the risk of tissue trauma, bleeding and bruising.

A good injector will be skilled and comfortable using either tool to achieve the desired effect.

Some swelling is definitely normal after lip fillers for a few reasons. First, lips are a very vascular area of the body. Injections, as well as the lidocaine in the filler and in the numbing cream cause an increase in blood flow, which leads to swelling. There will also be inflammation related to the procedure which causes swelling. There will often be some bleeding, bruising, or hematomas related to the injections. If you have swelling, you can apply a cool pack to the area, take an antihistamine, and/or pain reliever such as tylenol. If you are concerned, please contact us anytime.
While it is normal to have some swelling after lip fillers, it is important to know when to seek medical attention. If the swelling is worsening, if you have pain, if you notice changes in the skin around your lips or nose, (besides a simple bruise), you should contact your injector. Although such complications are very rare, it is important to be aware of them and not hesitate to get in touch if you are concerned.
It can be very distressing to notice uneven lips after having lip filler. In almost all cases, the asymmetry is temporary, related to swelling and inflammation from the procedure, and will settle down after a few days. Nobody has perfectly symmetrical lips, but if you need a small touchup to improve the appearance after a treatment, this is complimentary and should be done about 2 weeks later, after the filler settles in.
In cases where dermal or lip filler becomes noticeable in the form of an unwanted lump or swelling, it can usually be dissolved with careful injections of hyaluronidase, which dissolves hyaluronic acid, the main component of lip filler. Your body also makes natural hyaluronidase which breaks down both filler and your own natural hyaluronic acid over time.
After treatment, avoid direct pressure on the treated areas for at about 24-48 hours. Moderate exercise is ok. Mild bruising or discomfort may occur. Let us know right away if you notice increasing pain or other skin changes. A optional follow up appointment is recommended about 2 weeks after your treatment for touch ups which are free of charge.
For your safety, using fillers in the lips should only be one by a trained and licensed medical doctor with proper skill and training. It is considered a higher risk area in comparison to other locations in the face.

I had a Vampire Facial done at PRP Skincare and Laser and I was extremely pleased with the excellent service and results. Dr. Yam is very knowledgeable and skilled. It's clear that he has great respect for his patients and is dedicated to providing the best. Before the procedure, I was asked about my specific concerns and given a clear overview of what to expect during and after the procedure. In my case, I had a grooved scar on the bridge of my nose from childhood and I wanted to lessen my laugh lines around my eyes. During the treatment, Dr. Yam was very attentive. He explained each step and frequently checked my level of comfort. I also noted that the problem areas I had mentioned were given specific attention, which I appreciated immensely. My recovery time was quick and painless. Within a few days the redness and swelling had subsided and the results of the treatment were quite remarkable. My husband commented on how radiant and and refreshed my face looked. I also noticed that these results continued to improve as the weeks passed. The scar on my nose is hardly noticeable now and the lines are not as deep around my eyes. I would highly recommend PRP Skincare and Laser to anyone looking to have any cosmetic work done. I know I look forward to my next treatment at this laser skin clinic.
After years of dealing with moderate incontinence I decided to try PRP since hearing about how it may help reduce urinary leakage. (for the record I have seen 2 pelvic floor physios after the birth of my third child, have used the jade egg and other pelvic floor exercises as well as laser therapy to rejuvenate my pelvic floor--all of which helped only a small amount). I received the PRP procedure from Dr. Yam 3 weeks ago. He and his assistant are highly professional, friendly, informative and caring . He made me aware of how the procedure works during the consultation, kept me informed while the procedure was being done and thoroughly went over the aftercare and what to expect as my body heals in the months post treatment. He has checked in with me now twice to see how I am doing and has been very supportive . So far I have seen good improvement and will hope to see more as my body rebuilds support in my pelvic floor. I may get another treatment from this laser skin clinic but will update my review then. Overall my experience with Dr. Yam has been great and I highly recommend him if you are looking for PRP.
Amazing experience. Dr. Yam and his assistant Siara are very professional. I see great results after the 3rd treatment. I definitely recommend this laser skin clinic!

Honestly , the best experience I could have ever asked for at this laser clinic. Dr. Yam and his assistant Siara made me feel so comfortable. Dr. Yam is so knowledgeable and I knew I was in the right place . With me turning 35 it was time to have a little pick me up. I am so happy with the results. He takes the time and care to produce exactly what you want. Making sure you're relaxed and addresses any questions you might have. I look younger and completely natural. He will be the only doctor I ever trust with my face . I’m seriously just so happy with the results. Nothing but a positive experience.

Dr. Yam and Siara were fantastic. I love that Dr. Yam is all about the natural look with botox. Dr. Yam is very knowledgeable and knows what he is doing. Very pleased. I would recommend PRP to all my friends, and I will definitely go back to this skin care centre.
Brilliant first impression. Looking forward to seeing the results after the PRP treatment at this laser skin clinic.
I did PRP Microneedling with them and was very happy with the result. My skin now feels more healthier, smoother and hydrated. I love how I don't even need to put makeup on and my skin is glowing!! The best laser skin clinic
What a great experience! Dr. Patrick Yam and Sirapat are so wonderful to deal with. He exercised such care while doing botox for me. He is very thorough and gentle. His passion for his work is apparent and consequently it was a wonderful experience. I highly recommend PRP Skincare & Laser clinic and especially Dr. Patrick and Sirapat.
Dr Yam and Siara at this Skin Care Clinic are amazing! Extremely professional and kind! They are extremely honest and will help fix any problems or insecurities you may have. I’ve never had a more comfortable experience than I have at PRP Skincare.
Dr. Yam and Siara are very professional and knowledgeable about the field. I had my PRP facial done at this skin care clinic and I’ve gotten so many compliments about my skin improving since! Siara is so sweet and friendly and she has made my visit to this skin care centre very enjoyable. Just had my first chin filler today by Dr. Yam and he has patiently explained all the questions and concerns I have before the procedure. He is very professional and careful during the process. It was quick, effective, and most importantly, painless! The results are displayed right away and I’m loving it. On top of that, pricing is very reasonable. Definitely a 100/100 experience!
I got nose fillers, vampire facials, and the fire and ice facial done at this skin care centre many times and they were amazing. I trust Dr. Patrick Yam 100 percent with my nose fillers, he was super professional and my nose looks beautiful and natural. Siara was super friendly and sweet, she did my facials and my skin looks radiant, fresh, glowing after! Couldn't be happier with the service and outcome.
A great and honest duo of caring professionals at this Laser Skin Clinic that go the extra mile in making sure you look your best! Thanks guys!
I went to this skin care clinic for rejuvenation injectable. I was so impressed with their service. Doctor and his partner were so detailed, tender and knowledgeable. If you need a good rejuvenation treatment, please consider this place as a first choice.
Dr. Yam and his assistant went above and beyond to accommodate my appointment during a time that they were not open. They took their time in explaining all the details and I was made to feel very comfortable. I am loving the results of my lip fillers and dysport in my glabella. It was relatively pain-free and the results look amazing. I had almost no bleeding or bruising. I am definitely going to see Dr. Yam at this skin care clinic again.
Dr. Yam and Siara are so knowledgeable and have helped me through my journey every step of the way. Been going to this laser centre for more than a year and they never disappoint. I definitely recommend it.
Very happy with my experience at PRP Skincare & Laser Centre. They take the individuals needs and wants into consideration while maintaining integrity.
I am so happy that I found this skin care centre. Dr. Yam is the best Dermatologist I have ever seen. He is very knowledgeable and professional. Also his staff, she is very nice & friendly. I had my first PRP session yesterday, that was pretty good.
Very conscientious doctor. Dr. Yam takes his time and the results are great. Very happy with this laser clinic
My experience at PRP has been amazing. They are incredibly knowledgeable and patient. This skin care clinic actively listen to any questions and concerns you have and provide answers. I will 100% not go anywhere else.
My experience was truly incredible. I felt very valued and there was tons of time dedicated to my questions and the appointment in general. Dr. Yam acknowledged an area I wanted to work on which a previous Dr. denied. The prices were also highly reasonable. I will definitely be coming back to this laser skin clinic.
I’m very impressed with the hospitality of Siara and Dr. Yam! They took me in at the beginning of August 2019 for acne. As of February 2020, my skin has greatly improved and I will be back to this skin care centre soon to this check in. I owe them many thanks for not only improving my acne, but also the confidence I have gained from having clearer skin.
I'm a first time Botox getter. The staff at this skin care centre were so friendly and knowledgeable. Not pushy at all. Prices are reasonable. I was nervous of the pain but honestly it felt like tiny mosquito bites. Will totally come back.
I came in today for an AFA clay peel. The skin care clinic itself is very clean. Siara showed me excellent hospitality and she was very informative of each step of the facial which was very comforting. I can’t wait to see my results!
This has been the best dermatology experience I have had. Dr. Yam and his staff have gone above and beyond to achieve the results I want. His skills and bedside manners are phenomenal! I have gone to him for a wide variety of treatments and have seen considerable differences compared to any other skin care clinic I've visited in the past. Not only does he have the latest knowledge but also a great eye for the art of medicine. I will definitely be continuing to see him for ongoing treatments!
I’ve been flying in to see Dr. Yam and his assistant Siara for 8 months now. I’ve had a beyond positive experience. He has the lightest hand possible with needles. You won’t find more competitive prices for what is in my experience living in the United States, is that of the highest skill level. The laser clinic is not in a glamorous area (think Richmond strip mall)- but don’t let that throw you. The practice itself is very clean and he takes the utmost care in making sure the patient is comfortable. He also understands science and human anatomy. When it comes to needles, I don’t want anyone who is not a doctor injecting me. I’ve also seen his work on people I’ve referred who went for cosmetic procedures for hyaluronic acid products and they look incredibly natural. He’s not an Instagram doctor, so you won’t see any crazy before and after's online but I can say, the work I’ve seen doesn’t look like work at all and that’s a rare thing in the age of female muppets.
Above & beyond the best Dr. for all the latest cosmetic procedures. Knowledge of the ever changing industry 2nd to none. Patient, methodical, gentle and precise with injections. Sanitary process deserves recognition as they are fastidious about processes at this laser clinic. No hard sells, just knowledgeable recommendations. Results above expectations. Book now!!!
I don't know where to start. The staff at this laser centre go above and beyond their work. I'm lucky to know great people like them. They make you feel like family. I definitely recommend them for any services that they provide and can't wait to get most of the services that I need. Thank you for everything!
I was recommended to come to PRP Skincare & Laser by a close friend, and the service was absolutely phenomenal. Dr. Patrick Yam & Siara were super kind and informative about the procedures I was curious about (lip fillers & skin - PRP treatment) and I had no hesitation after the consultation where I did the filler immediately the day of. They took very good care of me and were extremely kind-hearted. Needless to say the results look incredible! I did my lips and right now it has only been about 1.5 hours after the procedure. The swelling is minimal and I can't stop looking at myself in the mirror!!! I am convinced to come back for a treatment at this skin care centrefor skin and I am so grateful & excited to have met Dr. Patrick Yam & his assistant Siara!
I have had 3 treatments at PRP Skincare and Laser. I am in my late 40’s and have a lot of sun damage from years of no sunscreen. I went to PRP skin care centre. Results have been incredible and the staff is very friendly and professional. I recommend them to all!
