While lip augmentation has certainly become more popular over the years, with many celebrities opting for dramatic fullness, Dr. Parkins’ and Dr. Boehm’s goal is to help you look naturally beautiful and subtly enhanced. Even a bit too much filler can create an over-treated look, which is why Dr. Parkins and Dr. Boehm are careful and meticulous with their lip injections, creating just the right amount of volume. Fillers recommended for lip enhancement include Juvederm® Ultra and Ultra Plus, Vollure™, Volbella®, Restylane-L®, Refyne, Defyne, and Kysse.
Dr. Parkins and Dr. Boehm welcomes patients interested in lip injections to ask questions and meet with one of them for a short physical exam so they can determine the ideal treatment plan. They will choose the best filler for providing your desired effect.
The lip injection procedure itself is quick and comfortable. Topical numbing cream can be provided, but—as with all injections—patients will feel a slight pinching sensation during the treatment.
There is no recovery period associated with dermal fillers for the lips, though patients should expect some swelling at the injection sites, as well as some mild post-injection bruising.
Many patients are concerned that swelling has not receded the very next day after their lip injections, but it’s important to note that hyaluronic acid molecules in the filler hold onto water. This property coupled with the typical swelling can make anyone’s lips look larger than desired at first. As these side effects resolve, however, you will see your more natural-looking enhancement appear.
The swelling can last for about two days, but be sure to give yourself plenty of time to fully heal and allow results to mature. If you have any concerns about swelling, first try applying an ice pack to the area and avoid medications that can thin the blood, as this contributes to swelling.
The fully matured results should be visible at the two-week mark.
