If you would like to achieve fuller, plumper lips, your options can be limited if you’re trying to avoid surgery. For this reason, Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness offers lip injections to help patients achieve their cosmetic goals. We offer this treatment to the residents of Greensboro, Fayetteville and High Point, NC.
What is Involved with Lip Injections?
Lip injections are non-surgical lip augmentation treatments that use dermal fillers and injectables to enhance lip shape and volume. Many people pursue lip augmentation treatments to either address signs of aging or simply enhance the shape and size of the lips. In any case, surgery can be expensive, and often requires substantial recovery periods for results that may not even look that natural.
Lip injections use smooth gel-like formulas to add a natural-looking volume to the lips. In addition to producing more voluptuous lips, lip injections can even eliminate fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. At Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness, we may recommend one of the following products for your lip augmentation treatment:
Are Lip Injections Right for Me?
If you are looking for a non-surgical technique for enhancing the lips and correcting age-related volume loss, you may be a good candidate for lip injections. As with all our procedures, we are proud to offer financing options for the lip injection treatment to make it a more affordable treatment for those who desire it.
How Does Lip Injection Treatment Work?
The lip injection treatment begins with the application of a local anesthetic, which will help reduce any discomfort during the injection process. Additionally, our lip injection products contain lidocaine, a local numbing agent, which should further reduce any pain.
During the treatment, the desired formula will be injected into the lips. We may also lightly massage the area to ensure that the formula is evenly distributed. A lip injection treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes to perform.
What Can I Expect During Recovery From Lip Injections?
Lip injections are a quick and minimally invasive treatment, which requires no significant recovery process. You may notice some initial redness, soreness or bruising following your injections, but these effects usually fade within a day or two. You will be able to resume all normal activities immediately following your treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Lip Injections?
The results from your lip injection treatment will be visible immediately following your treatment, as the dermal filler formulas provide instant volume upon injection. The results from lip injections typically last about a year, but their exact duration can vary depending on the product used for treatment. Additional treatments can be easily administered to extend the duration of your results.
