Lip Fillers & Lip Injections to Improve the Look of Your Lip

Lip Fillers and injection to give your lips more volume

Lip fillers and injections can enhance the appearance of a patient’s lips by altering their shape, volume, and structure. These fillers, also known as dermal fillers, are injectable treatments that can enhance the appearance of thin or uneven lips, or to create a fuller and more youthful look. These treatments can provide long-lasting results that can last for up to six months before maintenance injections are required. There are a variety of products available for patients to choose from, all of which produce similar outcomes. Some benefits of getting lip injections include:

  • Controlling the volume of your lips

  • Allow for gradual treatment

  • Can be dissolved if any bumps appear

  • Less swelling compared to other options

  • Results may last a long time, but are not permanent

  • Unlikely to cause allergic reaction

What to expect when getting lip fillers

When it comes to lip fillers, most people are skeptical to follow through with the treatment due to pain. To avoid this, a numbing agent or topical anesthetic is applied to reduce any and all discomfort. Then, using a fine needle, the filler is injected into the desired areas of the lips. After the treatment, it is expected to experience swelling and redness at the injection site, which should resolve within a few days. It is important to follow any post-treatment instructions, such as alcohol and smoking limitations, for at least 24 hours post treatment. Some post-treatment instructions include:

  1. Avoid rubbing and massaging the treated area for the first few days to prevent the filler from spreading to unintended areas

  2. Apply ice to the treated area for the first 24 hours to reduce swelling and discomfort

  3. Avoid products containing alcohol, retinol, or glycolic acid for the first few days

  4. Avoid drinking from a straw or smoking

Following the post-treatment instructions ensure the best results to minimize and reduce the risk of complications.

It is important to note that lip fillers are not permanent and the effects may last for several months to a year before touch-up appointments are needed to maintain the desired look. Once the lips have fully healed, they will once again feel normal.
