How Long Does It Take to Recover from Lip Injections?

There is no downtime linked to lip injections.

What Are Lip Injections?

Our lip injections can help you achieve the look for your lips that you’ve always dreamed of. Our treatments are a great response to naturally-thin lips and the loss of volume that can occur as the body ages. Therefore, lip injections are an easy solution to restoring the fullness you desire.

Are You a Candidate for Lip Injections?

One of the most common ingredients used in most Dermal Fillers is Hyaluronic Acid, which is a substance that is already naturally occurring in our body. Only in very rare cases is there any threat that the injection will irritate or be rejected by the body. With that said, certain conditions could make you ineligible. Please schedule a consultation for answers about how the treatment may affect you personally.

Benefits of Lip Injections

Perhaps you’ve never been satisfied with the fullness of your lips. Lip injections may be your path to the look you’ve been waiting for your entire life if that’s the case!

What Are the Risks for Lip Injections

Some of the main risks include infection, swelling, bruising, and allergic reactions. In addition, it is important to work with an injector like those found at Skin Technique to minimize any potential complications. Luckily, with proper care and attention before and after your injection, you can help to reduce these risks and enjoy beautiful, plump lips.

How to Prepare for Lip Injections

Be sure to clean your face thoroughly before your appointment to help prevent infection. Avoid taking blood-thinning medications for at least two weeks before your injection, as this can increase the risk of bruising.

What to Expect Post Lip Injections

A short recovery period may include some redness and swelling for the first few days after the procedure. After that, your lips will return to a standard look but enhanced by the extra fullness provided by the lip injections.

While people will recognize the difference, it won’t look bulbous or fake like the “work” from 10-20 years ago. Dr. Pavlou has performed thousands of lip enhancement procedures, and we are confident you will be very happy with his ability to deliver natural results.

Lip Injections Recovery & Timeline

Lip injections are a popular cosmetic procedure that can give your lips a fuller, more youthful appearance. The procedure is quick and relatively painless, and the results are immediate. However, as with any injectable treatment, there is a risk of side effects and complications.

Most patients experience some swelling and bruising after the procedure, typically lasting for a few days. It is also important to avoid strenuous activity or exposure to excessive heat or cold for the first 24 hours after the injections.

To Enjoy Results without Surgery

In the past, treatments, including surgery had little chance of making things better, and could make the lips permanently worse. Our lip enhancements involve a natural, injectable and non-permanent solution.

You can try out the fuller lip look for 6 months to a year and decline new injections if you aren’t satisfied.

Lip Injections FAQs

Why Do Lips Lose Their Plumpness?

Lips can lose fullness for various reasons, including age, environment, and occupational factors. Age, and how you age as determined by your genetics, is likely the largest factor. Most people lose collagen and other connective tissue as they age, and lose the ability to hold onto moisture. Hot, dry climates and occupations can also rob moisture from the lips.

How Precise Are the Results of a Lip Enhancement?

The location and position of the gel injectable will be very precise, and based on a mapping of the lips and an examination of what location would provide the most natural-looking and pleasantly-appearing effects.

What Will Be Discussed During the Consultation?

During the consultation, you’ll meet with Dr. Pavlou, who will help you understand the possibilities of the procedure, how your lips may benefit from injections placed in certain spots, and how many applications are necessary. You’ll have a chance to ask any questions about the procedure, and to see some before-and-after pictures of our patients so that you can judge the potential for yourself.
