We are here to help you- Lip fillers have come to be your best friend! Lip injections are happening, and if you’ve ever been curious, even for a second, about how much lip injections cost, how they work, or if you should get them, it’s time to get informed.
How Do Lip Injections Work?
Lip injection is the process of filling the lips with material. Although we often think of them in relation to patients who desire increased volume, they can also be used to correct uneven lips, lift the corners of the mouth, and smooth out lip wrinkles, which become more prominent with age.
Are Lip Injections Painful?
The lips are sensitive, and without an anesthetic, the lip injections will feel like a very sharp pinch. Also, some options contain lidocaine, a common local anesthetic, to make the process as painless as possible. Or, you can ask for a numbing cream 15 minutes before the treatment.
What is the Recovery Like?
Immediately afterward, the lips will be swollen and possibly mildly bruised. However, the majority of the swelling will go down two days later and will have completely resolved in two weeks.
How Long Do Lip Injections Last?
On average, they last up to six months, but results may vary depending on your lifestyle factors. For example, very active patients who exercise frequently tend to metabolize filler more quickly. Most fillers are FDA-approved for cosmetic use among patients 21 years old and up.
