The Smart Beauty Guide to Lip Injections
What You Need to KnowSome of us are born with full lips, and some of us aren’t. Some of us lose our full lips as we age, and others see fine lines and wrinkles creep in, changing the appearance and appeal of their lips. Smokers develop perioral lines over time. All of these are common problems our practice helps improve with injections. Lip treatments can be scheduled anytime; however, bruising can occur. You may feel less self-conscious by scheduling treatment for a time when public appearances will be minimal. If you have a history of cold sores, you’ll want to start medication two days before treatment. Be sure to discuss any cold sore history during your consultation so we can help you prep and receive the maximum outcome. Lip treatments are mildly invasive. Swelling can occur, and if it does, you can treat it using an ice regiment.
Opting For Lip InjectionsChoosing to use lip injections is a big decision for some patients. We trust the Allergan family of fillers, and we’ll help you create the best treatment plan for you. Opting for injections is a very personal decision. We recommend them based on safety, minimal side effects, and – most importantly – results. Depending on the chosen filler, our patients don’t require another treatment for 6-18 months. Many of today’s lip injectable treatments are dermal fillers. These types of fillers are sometimes referred to as “hyaluronic acid fillers.” Hyaluronic acid fillers, which have largely replaced collagen fillers, can improve lip appearance by adding shape, structure, and volume. These fillers have numerous benefits including:
- Lip volume control
- Gradual pace treatment
- Long-lasting results
