Recently, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey issued an Executive Order that lifted the state-wide mandate for masks. The order asked businesses to continue to follow CDC guidelines to continue to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  While we respect everyone’s personal choices surrounding this matter, the nature of our work with our patients require that we work in close proximity of each other and therefore we believe it is in the best interest of our business to continue wearing masks until further notice.  We will revisit this policy once we have more time and information to evaluate the impact the executive order has on our industry and community.  In the meantime, we respectfully ask that while you are providing us the privilege of caring for you and your loved ones, that you please respect our mask policy. Masks are required on every individual in the building, covering the mouth and nose. 
We understand that this has been a trying time for all involved, and we are all ready to get back to normal as soon as possible. We are working hard to create processes that will allow us to do so shortly. We are confident that within a short time, if we can all work together, we will return to normal. We are very excited to see your smiling faces again, soon.

Considering Lip Augmentation?

If you were born with thin lips, or if aging has caused your lips to flatten so they are not as plump as you would like, you now can do something about it. Dr. Emilio Justo and his skin care professionals offer a variety of safe and effective lip augmentation procedures.

You can select from a variety of lip injections at our facilities serving Phoenix from Sun City West,Sun City, and Wickenburg, that can enhance the size and shape of your lips. We offer the leading tissue (dermal) fillers,Juvéderm®Restylane®, and Perlane®, or micro-droplet silicone oil. These tissue fillers give gradual plumping which can be tailored based upon the individual patient's desires. Furthermore, the results look and feel natural.

Although implantable materials can be surgically used to augment the lips, Dr. Emilio Justo prefers the beauty, ease, and safety of tissue fillers for the lips.

To set up an appointment with Dr. Justo and his skilled team, contact the professionals at Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center - providing several services, including lip injections, to residents of Phoenix, Glendale, Peoria, Surprise and beyond since 1989.

Benefits of Lip Augmentation

Nothing is quite as friendly as a beautiful smile. Has the beauty of your smile been diminished, or has the graceful curve of your upper lip begun to flatten out? If so, discuss lip augmentation options with Dr. Justo to learn how you can have luscious lips! As an added benefit, tissue (dermal) fillers can also reduce fine lines around your lips.

Lip Augmentation Procedure and Recovery

Over time your lips may have lost their fullness and small wrinkles have appeared around them. Facial tissue fillers and hyaluronic acids (HA) can restore lost volume, and help to stimulate the body's collagen production. Dr. Justo will discuss with you the type of tissue filler,Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Perlane® , that will accomplish your lip augmentation and facial volumizing goals.


Juvéderm® is an injectable hyaluronic acid filler that was created by Allergan, Inc., the makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Juvéderm® can reduce fine lines and wrinkles and add volume to the lips and skin.


Restylane® is a clear gel that contains a non-animal-based hyaluronic acid. HA naturally occurs in humans and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. Dr. Justo advises that Restylane® maintains its shape by using the body's own moisture (water).


Perlane® is dermal filler that provides longer-lasting results. Perlane® is similar to Restylane® except that the gel particles are larger and are injected deeper into the skin. The injections are done with an ultra-fine needle. You will notice that your lips with have added volume and fine lines will also be diminished.

Lip augmentation using the selected tissue filler is usually performed under topical anesthesia with an anesthetic cream applied. In more sensitive or anxious patients, a dental block (injection) can be used for deeper numbing effect. Recovery takes only a few days to a week, at which time the lips usually look and feel marvelous.

Since the dermal fillers contain natural occurring HA here's little chance for an allergic reaction. It's biodegradable, so your body will absorb it overtime.


1.Restylane® is FDA for wrinkles and folds from the nose to the corners of the mouth.

2.Juvéderm®, is the first FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler with demonstrated safety and effectiveness in persons of color. (Juvéderm®, official Web site)
