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.”

Do New York City patients really need Voluma™


Dermal fillers aren’t new. Soft tissue augmentation for cosmetic improvement was pioneered in the 1800s. The first FDA-approved injectable filler became commercially available in the United States in 1981. Today we use an assortment of safe, effective dermal fillers from a number of reputable manufacturers to lift, soften wrinkles, augment lips, and contour facial planes.

So you may be wondering why patients in New York City need Voluma™, yet another dermal filler. The answer is that no one product is right for every patient, every treatment area, or type of enhancement. Voluma™ is the first and only injectable filler approved by the FDA for a very specific purpose – instant correction of volume loss in the midcheek area. It has a longevity that may be double normal fillers – Voluma™ can last up to two years.

As we age our faces lose hydration, fat, muscle tone, and even bone. That causes youthful, smooth contours to become more angular, and allows hollows to develop beneath the cheek bones. Without supportive volume, skin sags into wrinkles and folds.

Voluma™ is a smooth, clear gel formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA). This substance occurs naturally in skin and binds to water to provide plumpness. But HA levels decrease as we age, and in response to UV exposure, environmental pollutants, and smoking.


Voluma™ replenishes HA at this precise area, providing instant uplift that softens the appearance of wrinkles and restores rounded contours. A treatment session takes only about 30 minutes, and there is essentially no downtime. Results are long-lasting – about two years in clinical studies.

Yes, as an experienced, Board certified dermatologist I already have a variety of weapons in my arsenal of non-surgical, minimally invasive rejuvenation techniques. And yes, there is room for one more. I use Voluma™ along with neuromodulators and other types of soft tissue fillers, in customized combination protocols specifically designed for each individual patient.

Voluma™ is a powerful tool for a younger looking you.

Voluma – the injectable NYC has been waiting for


There’s a common misconception about wrinkles. Plenty of people believe that skin stretches over time, drooping into folds. While that can happen to the body in the case of extreme weight gain and loss, facial wrinkles are formed in a different way.

The amount of skin on your face remains fairly static throughout your adult life. What changes is the volume supporting it. That volume comes from hydration, fat, muscle, and bone, all of which naturally diminish as you age. You might imagine it as removing the stuffing from a pillow. Voluma is a new injectable solution to lost facial volume, from the manufacturer you know and trust – Juvederm. My patients in NYC have been waiting for this breakthrough, and I’m pleased to deliver it.

Voluma is a smooth, clear gel formulated with hyaluronic acid. The “acid” word sounds scary, but HA is natural component of your body, found in joints, connective tissues, and eyes. The amazing thing about HA is that it captures about 1,000 times its own weight in water. That gives Voluma incredible capacity to plump facial tissues immediately, and to continue to hold volume long term.

I identify areas of your face such as the apex of your cheek, the “apple,” and the hollow beneath your cheek bone that need additional volume. A few injections into precise points restore youthful lift and give an appearance boost to the whole face. Voluma works very well in conjunction with neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport, and other dermal fillers as part of a customized rejuvenation program. There is essentially no downtime – my patients typically return to normal activities the next day.

Why else might you want to consider Voluma? It is currently the only dermal filler approved by the FDA to add instant volume to the cheek area, and it lasts up to two years!
