Commonly Asked Questions
1. Will It Hurt?
No. Unlike other procedures that are going to yield similar results, there is no pain associated with lip injections. It is non-surgical and non-invasive so you don’t have to worry about recovery time or pain. The most you will experience is a quick pinch and that’s it.
2. Will It Look Unnatural?
Our experts will discuss your goals with you during your initial consultation and make sure that you get the best, most natural-looking result possible. While you may have seen others who’ve had this type of treatment be “overdone”, that will not be the case here at our offices. We will ensure that you don’t end up with that unnatural look.
We will simply enhance the look of your lips, adding volume and thickness where you want it.
3. Is It Safe?
Yes, these types of injections are completely safe! You don’t have to worry about injury or damage to your skin with this type of treatment. All the types of fillers used are FDA approved.
4. How Do I Care for My Lips After Treatment?
There are some basic steps you should take following treatment that we will discuss with you during your initial consultation and after your treatment. It is recommended that you avoid rigorous exercise in the 24 hours following your treatment. Massaging or excessively touching the tips immediately following treatment should also be avoided.
If there are other considerations you should make following your treatment, our professionals will let you know. This will ensure that you get the most out of the treatment and end up with the desired look that you and our professionals discussed.
5. Can I Do This Myself at Home?
It is never recommended to attempt any type of injectable treatment by yourself at home. Our experts have been trained on how to properly administer this type of treatment in order to get the best results safely. Trying this on your own could end up damaging your lips, and it could be quite painful. Always stick to the professionals when it comes to injectable treatments.
6. When Will I See My Results?
You will notice the results of this type of treatment very quickly. Typically, those who have had this type of treatment notice their results almost immediately. This will vary from person to person and you will notice that the full spectrum of results won’t be visible for a couple of days following treatment.
7. How Long Do the Results Last?
This type of injectable treatment is going to yield results for around 6 months to a year. This will vary depending on the type of filler used which will be chosen by our professionals based on your goals discussed in the initial consultation. The injectable treatment dissolves over time and that time will vary depending on a variety of factors.
8. Can I Ever Get a Touchup?
Yes, once the results of your injections would begin to fade, you can come in to have a touchup. In addition to that, if you want more injections to get to your desired results, you can also have more than one treatment to get there. Our professionals will be able to give you a better idea of how many injections you will need and how often you should have them to get the results you want.
A few sessions may be needed for you to get to your desired look but some people are happy with their results after their first injection. It is all going to depend on your goals.
9. How Much Filler Will I Need?
Again, this will depend on what your goals are. If you want a milder amount of volume added to your lips, you won’t need as much filler as you would have a moderate amount of volume added to your lips. Our professionals will be able to access you personally and let you know how many injections you will need to reach the volume that you want.
10. How Long Will Treatment Take?
Typically, treatment is very short. Your session will take between 15 to 20 minutes depending on how much filler you are getting. This is a very short treatment when compared to other types of treatments that can yield similar results. That is another reason why this type of treatment is so popular. The sessions are short and you are free to go about your daily routine as you normally would immediately following treatment.
11. Are They Worth It?
If you are looking to add more volume to your lips, this treatment is completely worth it. It is quick, easy, painless, and requires no recovery time. This type of treatment can add volume to your lips that looks natural. Many people have benefited from this treatment over the years and the results speak for themselves.
12. Can I Have Them Only on My Upper Lip?
Yes, if your desired result is to add volume only to the upper or lower lip, you can still have this type of treatment. We will work with you to ensure that you will end up with the look that you want. If that only involves adding fillers to the upper lip, you can still have this treatment on that area only. The same goes with the bottom lip.
Some people find that they only want to add volume to their upper lip or lower lip for whatever reason. Either way, you can still benefit from this type of treatment as the volume will only be added where you want it.
13. Can I Still Benefit if I Have Really Thin Lips?
Yes, even if you feel that your lips are very thin, you can still benefit from this type of treatment. The fillers will still add volume to even very thin lips. Regardless of the current fullness of your lips, you can benefit from this treatment as it will add volume only in the areas that you want to give more volume to.
During your initial consultation, we will let you know how much you can expect to see in the way of results, even if you feel that your lips are very thin. You can still achieve, fuller, more defined lips with this type of treatment.
14. Will My Lips Feel Different Following Treatment?
No, your lips will not feel different after the full spectrum of results is present in the lips. Your lips will feel as they normally would. They will simply be fuller and more defined.
This is a common concern with this type of treatment as many people believe that their lips will feel strange or unnatural after receiving injections. This is not the case. When applied correctly, this type of treatment will only enhance the look of your lips, not change the way they feel. Everything will feel normal within 24 hours of treatment.
