In recent years, lip injections have become one of the most popular procedures, as many patients seek the perfect pout for their selfies and social media presence. Regardless of what has initiated your desire for fuller, more proportionate lips, lip injections are a convenient option for achieving your desired results. As with all dermal fillers and injectables, lip injections are not permanent. If you are wondering, ‘“How often do I need lip injections to maintain results?” then here is what you need to know:
Lip Injections Last Several Months
When it comes to estimating the length of results, this will vary depending on the individual. Results are immediate and patients are able to enjoy their lip injections anywhere from six months to a year. After that time, maintenance appointments are recommended to maintain results. This means you can expect to schedule a lip injection one to two times a year depending on your specific needs.
Injections are Comfortable and Convenient
At Lewen Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Lewen uses only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid gel facial filler products for lip injection procedures. This ensures that you are receiving only the safest and highest quality filler to enhance the volume and shape of your lips. Although many lip injection solutions have numbing medicine mixed in, additional numbing is also available, to ensure you are comfortable during the procedure.
The entire appointment is efficient and easy to fit into an already busy schedu
le. Our team will provide you with ice following your injection as well as detailed post-procedure instructions, so that you are thoroughly informed as to how to care for your lips, moving forward.
Downtime is Minimal
We understand how important it is to get back out into your life after a lip injection, and the good news is that you can. Although Dr. Lewen makes every effort to minimize bruising and swelling, these side effects can still occur. However, applying ice for the first 24-48 hours can greatly improve these side effects, and you are free to return to normal exercise after 24 hours.
