What Are Lip Injections?
Which Lip Injection Product is
Right for Me?
Juvederm® Volbella and Restylane® Silk are our recommended dermal filler products for lip injections. Juvederm® Volbella offers subtle results that plump the lips and address vertical lip lines, which last up to a year or longer. Restylane® Silk is composed of small molecules to ensure results that look as natural as possible, which last up to six months or longer. During your consultation, we will consider your cosmetic goals to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this time, we will be able to recommend the product that is right for you based on your specific treatment goals.
It’s not uncommon to meet someone with naturally small lips. Some people get lip thinning as a result of normal aging. Lip augmentation operations including fat transfer, dermal fillers, and implants are becoming more popular among people who want to give their lips more structure, contour, and volume.
The ‘lip augmentation’ process is a unique cosmetic procedure that aims to give a patient larger, more appealing lips. Lip augmentation, after dermabrasion, is the second most popular cosmetic treatment in the United States, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
The government has given the green light to a number of various hyaluronic acid fillers (HA fillers) in recent years. The current lip formulations share a lot of the same ingredients, with only small differences in density and duration. Injectable dermal fillers are currently the most prevalent method of lip augmentation.
What is a Lip Injection Treatment Like?
A number of injections will be performed in and around the lips. During this step, we will massage the injected gel into place to ensure the results look natural and match your cosmetic goals. This process takes only a few minutes, so a full lip injection treatment is completed in less than half an hour.
Is There Any Downtime After Lip Injections?
Lip injections are a great option for improving volume in the lips because they require absolutely no downtime. Patients are able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after their appointment, making lip injections a great “lunchtime” procedure.
Dermal fillers and injectables for the lips are non-surgical and require no downtime. Dermal injections allow you to adjust the amount of enhancement to your lips, whereas implants are fixed in size and cannot be changed. Lip injections not only add volume to your lips, but they also reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Lip Injections?
After your lip injection treatment, you will notice results immediately. All lip injection products plump the skin and fill in lines and wrinkles instantly upon injection. Some patients may experience mild redness or bruising in the treatment area, but these effects fade within a few days. Depending on the product used, you can expect your results to last between six months and a year.
How Much Do Lip Injections Cost?
The cost of your lip injection treatment will depend on the product used and the number of injections necessary to deliver your desired results. When you come in for your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan that includes the exact cost of your treatment. As a cosmetic procedure, lip injections are not covered by insurance providers. In order to keep this and other treatments affordable to our patients, we offer financing through CareCredit® and accept all major credit cards.
