Understanding Lip Fillers
Lip fillers serve multiple purposes: adding volume, correcting uneven lips, lifting the corners of the mouth, defining the Cupid's bow, enhancing the lip border, and smoothing out lip lines and wrinkles. Lip fillers are injected into the upper and lower lips. We use several fillers made of different compositions for lip augmentation procedures to serve your end goal. However, the most popular and requested lip injection choices are made of hyaluronic acid.
The lip fillers that Peach Skin & Laser professionals administer ensure natural-looking results that accentuate your million-dollar smile.
Frequently Asked Questions
Choosing a suitable type of filler entirely depends on your end goal. Be realistic and upfront about what you want. Do you want to go for a pillowy pout, or do you want a subtler natural look? Our experienced professionals recommend the best option based on your goals. They may use just one type or a combination to achieve different results. Your cost will depend on the type of filler chosen, your provider's level of expertise, their practice location, and the amount of filler injected. Typically one syringe is used during your first appointment, but you may want more, depending on your aesthetic goals. We have a range of flexible pricing plans crafted for your exact needs.
Carefully consider how you want your lips to look after the procedure. Avoid blood thinners like ibuprofen, vitamin E, fish oil, or alcohol ten days before your appointment. This helps reduce side effects like bruising and swelling.
A lip injection procedure usually begins with your provider applying a topical anesthetic to numb your lips. The filler is then injected via a small needle or cannula into areas of your lips where you want more volume or definition. These dermal fillers add desired contour and structure to your lips that suit your facial profile.
Once the filler has been injected, your provider gently massages your lips to prevent the formation of lumps. The entire process lasts a mere 30 minutes.
The procedure is a breeze, and the results are visible within one to three days. Once the fillers are injected, the gel in the fillers instantly adds volume and definition to your lips. Swelling is typical after injections, which should go down within a couple of days.
Depending on which filler you opt for, results can last three to 8 months. The disappearance rate of your filler depends on factors such as your lifestyle, metabolism rates, and habits. To maintain plumpness, you can expect to need regular touch-up sessions, typically around four to six months.
Lip fillers are considered the safest option for undergoing a lip augmentation procedure. Side effects are few and minimal, such as soreness and slight bruising. In rare and extreme cases, side effects include infection, allergic reaction, scarring, or the potential for tissue death if the filler is accidentally injected into a blood vessel and not quickly dissolved. That's why you must choose a trusted licensed provider like Peach Skin & Laser, which has vast expertise in performing safe lip enhancement procedures.
The lips are among the more sensitive body regions, due to which injections may feel slightly more painful. Our experts typically use a topical numbing cream before filler treatment to make the procedure more comfy and painless. Additionally, many hyaluronic acid fillers contain lidocaine to aid in pain management. Patients should expect slight soreness after treatment that is easily reduced with ice packs.
