What are Lip Injections?
Lip injections are a non-surgical form of lip augmentation, which involve the use of dermal fillers to increase volume in the lips. Lip injections allow patients to achieve instant results with no downtime. At NUSCULPT, we offer a number of dermal filler products for lip injections, including products from the families of Juvederm® and Restylane®.
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.
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.
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.
