What is Lip Filler?
Lip dermal fillers are the perfect solution for an extra boost of volume and definition! Lip injections contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance found in your body, to create fuller lips – no invasive surgeries or downtime needed. Plus, with Juvederm®, Restylane® and available as brands for lip filler treatment – you can’t go wrong when it comes to achieving those enhanced lips!
The Benefits of Lip Fillers
Cupid’s bow: Accentuating the shape of the Cupid’s bow with a small amount of dermal filler adds balance to the upper lip and draws attention to the midsection of the lips, creating a more youthful appearance.
Center fullness: As people age, lips lose volume and become thinner. Lip filler treatment helps restore fullness to thin lips for natural-looking results.
Profile projection: Lip injections can help enhance the side profile by adding volume to the lips. To achieve balance and perfect profile projection, our clients also opt to have dermal filler cosmetic procedures in other parts of the face, such as the chin or cheeks.
Side-to-side symmetry: Facial asymmetry can be caused by several factors, including genetics, aging and muscle weakness. Juvederm® lip filler injected is an excellent way to restore symmetry to asymmetrical lips. This type of lip augmentation is for minor adjustments to the shape of the lips by adding the right amount of filler where needed.
Minimal side effects: Most dermal filler injections contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the skin. Injecting hyaluronic acid fillers into the lips is considered a minimally invasive procedure, lowering the risk for side effects or complications even more.
Long-lasting: Lip filler injections yield long-lasting results, keeping lips looking plump or symmetrical for up to a year or longer.
Boosting confidence: Lip enhancement through injectable fillers can help improve self-esteem, body image and confidence.
How is works:
HOW LONG IS THE SERVICE?
Service typically takes anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to complete
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME?
The recovery time after Botox injections is generally minimal. Most people are able to return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment, with no downtime required. There may be some mild redness, swelling, or tenderness at the injection sites, but these side effects typically resolve within a few hours.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
It typically takes several days to two weeks to see the full results of Botox injections. During this time, the Botulinum toxin will be working to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles, and the lines and wrinkles will gradually soften and become less noticeable.
What to expect after lip filler?
Swelling and bruising are expected and should resolve within 2 weeks, but diligently following pre- and post-care instructions can significantly impact the amount of bruising and swelling. It’s important to note that each person is different, and side effects will vary.
As lip filler treatment is minimally invasive, most patients experience few side effects and minimal downtime. We’d be happy to address any concerns that may arise before or after a procedure.
