Your lips are such an important part of your overall look. Every smile and every frown tells a story, but as we age, our lips naturally lose some of their natural shape and volume.
Returning your lips to their former glory doesn’t have to be a struggle, however. Not when there are great options for natural lip enhancement in Issaquah at TLJ Aesthetics MD.
We have everything you need to bring out your ideal look for your lips. Every person and every set of lips is different, so we tailor your experience to your individual goals. That way, you’re left with the great, natural-looking lips you want!

Like we said earlier, everyone has different goals for their perfect lip look. Individualized treatment is at the heart of everything we do at TLJ, so we take the time to learn more about you and your goals before recommending any lip enhancement in Issaquah.
Before we decide on any treatments, we want to take the time to learn about your goals. We’ll ask deep questions about what you’re looking for from treatment; then, we can tailor our treatment recommendations directly to your goals.
Finding the right treatment means knowing exactly what look you want from your lips. Here are a few different concerns we can address:
To address these concerns, we have four different levels of lip enhancement in Issaquah: hydrated look, conservative correction, medium correction, and full correction.
Just as the name suggests, the hydrated look gives your lips a nice, plump texture. It brings out more color and fullness to your lips, creating a natural and healthy appearance.
With a conservative correction, we very minimally improve the fullness of your lips. We make sure this treatment delivers a natural look that might not seem enhanced to the untrained eye.
With a medium correction, there is a noticeable improvement in the volume of your upper and lower lips. The vermillion (pigmented part of your lips) is significantly plumper.
With a full volume correction, we can completely transform your lips. This procedure totally beefs up the vermillion of both your upper and lower lips and delivers a look that rivals those of Hollywood actresses.
With over 15 years of experience working with soft tissue fillers and other lip enhancement treatments, Dr. Terry Jacobson understands how to create natural-looking results you will love. Each of our treatments is performed directly by an experienced medical provider (one that diagnoses, treats, and prescribes for medical and cosmetic concerns), an extra measure taken to ensure you are in the most qualified hands.
We employ the most highly-trained PAs and patient coordinators to ensure you feel confident and comfortable with your experience from the moment you walk in the door. Our background means we can deliver a highly-personalized treatment, never a cookie-cutter solution.
After we’ve discussed your treatment goals, we can determine the right path forward for your natural lip enhancement in Issaquah. Here’s a look at some of the treatments we may recommend.
Easily one of our most popular treatments, Botox is an injectable that helps relax the muscles around the face. We can also use Botox in the skin around your lips to make subtle enhancements to your smile.
Our experienced medical providers will make a few small injections just above the upper lip, into the orbicularis oris muscle (the muscle surrounding the mouth). Botox then causes the muscle to relax temporarily. This allows your upper lip to roll upward, increasing the amount of upper lip that’s visible and giving your lips a fuller appearance. The Botox also has the added benefit of smoothing out vertical lines around your mouth, enhancing your naturally beautiful lips further.
Using Botox in this way can be tricky. The amount of Botox used for these lip enhancements is very minimal, and over-treating with too many units can result in an unnatural lip. That’s why it’s important to use a trusted aesthetic provider, like TLJ.
Like Botox, fillers are injectable products designed to reshape the features of your face without the need for surgery. Over time, fatty tissue of the face shifts, muscle and skeletal volume shrinks, and skin elasticity declines. With soft tissues fillers, we can restore volume in lips that have abated over time in a natural way or add a bit of refreshing volume to otherwise already youthful lips.
Exactly what kind of filler you need all depends on your end goals. We have a variety of filler options at TLJ MD, including:
Determining the right filler for you all comes down to the pre-treatment consultation. Everyone is going to have different goals, and the goals of someone in their 60s looking to restore their lips are different from the goals of someone in their 20s looking for some extra plumpness.
Did you know that most soft tissue fillers are made from the same substance? Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a molecule found naturally in your skin and a very natural choice for adding volume to your facial structures. It’s actually common for Dr. Jacobson to combine a number of fillers in one treatment session to optimize the precision and achieve your goals.
That’s part of the benefit of working with a medical professional with over 15 years of experience injecting a wide range of soft tissue fillers, each with their own unique characteristics (much like our patients!)
Halo is a one-of-a-kind treatment that combines ablative and non-ablative lasers and delivers incredible aesthetic results without the need for surgery or downtime.
By targeting the skin around your lips with Halo, we can tighten and lift the skin above your lip and bring a more natural, defined lip line. Halo also helps correct discoloration, which can improve the appearance of your lips as well.
After your treatment, you want your lips to stay vibrant and beautiful. If you’ve received an injectable treatment, the most common side effects include bruising and a stinging sensation at the time of treatment.
There may be swelling immediately after treatment that improves markedly by the end of the day of treatment. Our experienced medical providers do everything possible to prevent and avoid any unpleasant experiences and ensure your treatment is very comfortable.
We encourage you to give your lip enhancement in Issaquah two full weeks before judging the final look. We have a saying around the offices, “Don’t love them or hate them for 2 weeks!” It’s a process to get to the point where your lips have reached their full enhancement.
The INhance post-treatment serum from Alastin was designed specifically with injectables such as dermal fillers in mind. It uses TriHex Technology to help accelerate recovery from post-injection bruising and swelling, as well as improve the appearance of skin quality and texture by supporting the skin’s natural production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid.
