Dr. Simon Ourian Performs Dermal Filler Injection On September 21, 2015, Dr. Simon Ourian in an interview in Elle Magazine titled “5 Lip Rules I learned from Kylie Jenner’s Lip Guy,” offers his opinion on how to create the perfect plump lips using injectables. In the article, Dr. Ourian discussed how to pick a filler, differentiating between three of the most popular choices – Voluma, Restylane, and Juvéderm, Kylie Jenner’s filler of choice. According to Dr. Ourian, Voluma lasts longer but Juvéderm may be the right choice for those seeking a more temporary solution. For people who have never had lip fillers, Restylane Silk is an optimal gateway product. “[Restylane Silk] allows you to test it out and it’s more forgiving,” says Dr. Ourian. [see:]

At Dr. Ourian’s Beverly Hills clinic, Epione Medical Corporation, he and his staff take into account each patient’s desired aesthetic goals when recommending a course of treatment. “Some are already experienced with using fillers, while for others, this is their first time,” Dr. Ourian says, regarding the variety of patients who visit his clinic. “My goal is to always ensure my patients are comfortable and happy in the choices they make when they are with us.”

In his Elle interview, Dr. Ourian explains that the key is to take the process slowly, consider injections in the entirety of the targeted area, and to respect the anatomy of the lip. “Duck lips are created from overeager-ness. Just like anything, you have to be patient to ensure you get the best results,” says Dr. Ourian, who approaches injections by spacing out the appointments, carefully expanding the area each time so that he builds a cumulative effect. “Creating proportion is such an important aspect of improving the overall aesthetic.”

Part of Dr. Ourian’s philosophy is to avoid making patients look obviously done. For lip injections, he considers the patient’s initial lip shape, using these parameters as a guiding blueprint for how he will improve their look. “This is why I think it’s most helpful for patients to think in terms of their aesthetic ideal and how we can use these injections to best achieve this goal rather than calculating syringes or cc’s.”

“As in art, technique is definitely an important foundational tool for injections,” Dr. Ourian says. It isn’t the tools themselves, but how those tools are used to create that desired look. “I do micro-droplets, which distribute minute amounts of product,” Dr. Ourian told Elle. This provides Dr. Ourian with a much more measured control of where and how the filler is injected to create the most desirable end result and achieve that ultimate natural look.

Dr. Ourian has been a pioneer in laser technology and non-invasive aesthetic procedures including UltraShape, Voluma, Restylane, Juvéderm, Radiesse, Sculptra, Botox, and CoolSculpting. These treatments are used for the correction or reversal of a variety of conditions such as acne, acne scars, skin discoloration, wrinkles, unwanted fat, stretch marks, varicose veins, cellulite, and others.
