How to have fuller lips without coming out looking like a duck?

Lip Fillers: This is a No-Duck Zone – How to have fuller lips by Dr Ron Shelton

As we age, we tend to lose the volume around the mouth and the lips. The previously seductive plump lips you had, begins to diminish. However, there are procedures that can help you to restore the once youthful look, when you are exhausted of concealing those thin lips with lip gloss and lip liner.

 Juvéderm™ VOLBELLA is the latest and FDA approved injectable filler which Dr. Shelton uses in some cases but he also uses Juvéderm™ Ultra. He uses the forms that come premixed with anesthetic from the company which makes the injections more comfortable.

 Dr. Ron Shelton has become well known as a cosmetic dermatologist in producing natural results using these hyaluronic acid lip fillers.


 When it comes to plumping your lips with fillers, Dr. Shelton considers the shape and style of your lips. People often desire to have lips like Angelina Jolie, however these transformations require the physician to have a good understanding of anatomy and have an artistic sense.  You too often see lips looking very ducky and stick out because the injector just plumped in volume of filler without paying attention to proportions, shape and anatomy.

Therefore according to Dr. Shelton, the best method is to accentuate your natural lip contour and restore the lost volume.


When his patients say, “I don’t want to walk out of here with duck lips” he tells them that the people they see around the city with duck lips haven’t visited his practice.
Dr. Shelton has been heard to say frequently, “this is a No Duck Zone.”

NYC patients become acquainted with types of dermal filler injections

You may have heard of Juvéderm® and Botox®. These two injectables are among the most common types of injectables administered to the face for cosmetic improvement. While both Juvéderm® and Botox® are injected by way of fine needles, they are two completely different types of cosmetic procedures.

Dr. Ron Shelton offers both Botox® and Dysport®, which are neuromodulators. These types of solutions relax the muscles responsible for expression lines such as crow’s feet around the eyes and frown lines on the forehead.

Juvéderm® is one of many types of FDA-approved dermal fillers available to NYC patients through Dr. Shelton’s practice. Unlike neuromodulators that inhibit targeted muscles responsible for facial expressions and expression lines, dermal fillers combat age-related changes such as lost volume.
With more birthdays, the body produces less of the substances that give skin its youthful definition, elasticity, moisture, and contours. Substances such as hyaluronic acid (HA) may be replenished with Juvéderm® and Restylane®. HA is considered a natural moisturizer and lubricant.

Notably, many of them make up a family of fillers. For instance, Juvéderm® Ultra can treat mild folds, while the thicker and more viscous Juvéderm® Ultra Plus treats moderate folds and volume loss. Juvéderm Voluma® XC is the newest member of the family, and is specifically designed to correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area for patients aged 22 and older.

With some fillers, dramatic results may be visible instantly. With other fillers, the results may be more gradual as the respective substances stimulate the production of beneficial proteins such as collagen. Those fillers that stimulate changes to underlying tissues are generally considered long lasting.

Radiesse® is made from calcium microspheres similar to minerals found naturally in the body. Like HA-based fillers, Radiesse® is biocompatible and poses few risks of adverse allergic reactions. Since these calcium-based microspheres go to work to stimulate collagen, results can last for at least a year. The body eventually absorbs the gel that contains these minerals.

Sculptra® Aesthetic is made from poly-L-lactic acid, which is the same material that is used in dissolvable stitches. After an average of three sessions, you may see noticeable changes in smile lines and other contour deficiencies as the injectable stimulates the replacement of lost collagen. Results can last for more than two years as the body safely absorbs the filler material.

Dr. Shelton always keeps his finger on the pulse of evolving treatment options. Belotero Balance®, for instance, offers a twist on popular HA-based fillers as its unique manufacturing process results in a particularly soft, cohesive, and versatile gel to soften moderate smile lines and delicate vertical lip lines immediately.

There is no lack of options when it comes to the types of dermal filler injections in NYC. Dr. Shelton can simplify the process and guide you toward the best treatment plan.

How NYC area patients can achieve non-surgical face lifting

Dr. Ron Shelton is a board certified dermatologist in the NYC area who sub specializes, and whose practice is limited to dermatologic surgery. He offers a wide range of medical and cosmetic solutions to patients who visit his practice and are serious about achieving more attractive skin and better health and wellness. He welcomes new patients to his practice and encourages them to contact his NYC area practice to learn about anti-aging solutions such as non-surgical face lifting.

Non-surgical face lifting is a common request by men and women who are dealing with the signs of aging. Skin laxity can occur over the years due to the reduction of natural collagen, which adds volume and keeps the skin looking youthful. When collagen is naturally lost, which starts around the age of thirty, the skin is not nearly as tight as it used to be. This results in sagging and drooping of the skin over the years caused by skin laxity. This also causes patients to experience unwanted fine lines and wrinkles on the face that can make them look older than they feel. When patients come to our practice, they are often seeking an alternative to plastic surgery.

Our practice offers many treatments that can help in providing patients with non-surgical face lifting. For some, injectable fillers may be suggested. Injections such as hyaluronic acid or collagen stimulators work in adding volume and stimulating collagen production to reduce skin laxity and target unwanted fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face.

Another non-surgical solution may be laser therapies. Many of these treatments use devices that are applied to the face to stimulate collagen production. At the same time, they may also smooth the texture and tone of the face and therefore, reduce fine lines and wrinkles that may already be present. We also offer many radio frequency and ultrasound technologies, which are known to tighten and lift the skin, providing similar results in a non-invasive manner.

Dr. Ron Shelton, formerly having a practice in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, NYC, is now located in Midtown Manhattan. He can be reached at (212) 561-5808 and patients are encouraged to ask for him specifically when calling to book a consultation visit at his practice.
