Lip fillers are a highly popular cosmetic treatment right now, not only because the treatment is safe and fast, it can truly enhance the appearance of not only your lips, but your entire face. Our medical injectors are experts at lip fillers and have been providing this treatment for years.
There has been a more than 50 percent increase in lip augmentations in the past two decades. Suffice to say, lip fillers are becoming more and more common. Made of hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar component found in the body, lip fillers not only enhance the lips but also provide moisture.
Clients most often consider lip fillers if they have very thin lips or simply want to plump up their pout. Others have a fairly voluminous lower lip but wish to enhance the upper lip for symmetry. The beauty of lip fillers is that results are nearly instant and can help your entire face appear more balanced.
Prior to the injections, we will numb you for your comfort. There may be swelling and/or bruising at the injection site, however, the use of ice and arnica can help reduce this. You should come to your appointment well-hydrated and avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements (if doctor approved) for one week prior to your appointment to reduce the risk of bruising.
Typically, like dermal filler injections in the face, lip filler can last six to nine months. However, many clients choose to come back before that if they want just a bit more. If you have thin lips (and even if you don’t), it may take a couple of appointments to achieve your desired goal. And if you have remaining product, you may always come back for free touch ups until the entire product is used.
We pride ourselves on providing our clients with fantastic, natural-looking results. If you are interested in learning more, we invite you to schedule your consultation.
