It seems like full, pouty lips are a “must-have” these days, and while there are some born that way, not everyone is so lucky. Whether you have average lips or have been told you have thin “bird lips”, there are ways to achieve the luscious lips that people dream of without undergoing any kind of surgical treatment. At Skin Boutique, we offer Lip Fillers for our Birmingham, MI, and Metro Detroit area clients as a way to increase their lip volume. To learn more about the treatment and how it can help you, please keep reading below.
Lip Fillers are injections that often use a dermal filler made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a natural substance that your body creates. The HA is a synthetic gel-like substance that is made in your body, which makes it safe for use and can be absorbed naturally over time.
Our Birmingham and Detroit Lip Filler clients have experienced the following benefits from their treatment:
At Skin Boutique, we believe that any adult can be a great candidate for Lip Fillers in the Metro Detroit area, as long as they possess these characteristics:
If you currently have an active oral infection, including canker sores or cold sores, this treatment is probably not right for you at this time. We recommend letting the condition heal before coming in for a consultation.
The first step in getting Lip Fillers in Birmingham or Detroit, MI is to contact Skin Boutique and schedule your consultation. During this one-on-one appointment with one of our cosmetic injectors, you will be able to address all of your aesthetic desires, ask any questions and address concerns about the treatment, and have your lips evaluated. You will also need to answer some questions regarding your medical history, but this is to prevent any unnecessary side effects during your treatment or recovery. Finally, your personalized treatment plan will be made and if you agree with it, you can have your Lip Filler treatment immediately after. If for any reason you would like to reschedule, our Patient Coordinator will help you schedule your treatment for a better time.
When you’re ready for your Lip Filler treatment, you will first make yourself comfortable in one of our reclining chairs. Next, the cosmetic injector will apply a topical anesthetic to your lips to prevent any pain, as well as make your experience as comfortable as possible.
Then using a very thin needle, the Injector will inject the lip filler into strategic locations on your lips. Normally, these points can include the edges of your lips (vermillion border), the curve in the center of your upper lip (Cupid’s bow), and the corners of your mouth, but it will depend on what is discussed during your consultation.
Once complete, the injector will gently massage your lips to help them absorb the filler and you will be given an ice pack to apply to your lips to minimize swelling and bruising.
After you have been released, you will be able to return to your normal routine. You may experience some swollen, sensitive, or bruised lips during the first 24 – 72 hours, but it can take up to a week to subside. You can treat any pain or discomfort with over-the-counter pain medication and even an ice pack to reduce inflammation, however, it should be kept at 10 minutes at a time. Do not purse your lips, which means no straws or kissing, and be careful when brushing your teeth. We encourage you to drink plenty of water during this time because healthy skin comes from staying hydrated. Finally, avoid exercising or strenuous activities for at least 24 hours to avoid additional bruising or accidental filler migration.
During your recovery, please avoid wearing lipstick, lip balm, or any other products for the first 24 hours.
The cost of Lip Fillers in Birmingham and Detroit will depend on several factors, including how much filler is used. The best way to determine how much your treatment will be is to contact Skin Boutique and schedule your consultation. Once you meet with your Cosmetic Injector and they create your treatment plan, our Patient Coordinator will be able to give you a complete breakdown of the price.
