Lip Augmentation with Lip Injections
Lip augmentation through lip injections can help restore lips to their natural fullness or add volume to lips that may be lacking due to hereditary traits. Lip augmentations are administered using various dermal fillers composed of hyaluronic acid, including Juvéderm® and Restylane®. With a controlled amount of lip injections, you can add fullness and sensuality to your lips.
Juvéderm Ultra XC®
Juvéderm Ultra XC is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid gel used to add volume to the lips. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in our body and is responsible for keeping our skin plump and hydrated. When injected into the lips, it gives them a subtle lift with results that you can see immediately and often lasts 6-12 months. Juvederm Volbella- 18-24 months
Restylane and Restylane Silk are both FDA-approved soft hyaluronic acid gels used for treating moderate to severe lines. It is also commonly used to add volume to the face and lips. This versatile lip filler can be used independently or with other fillers, depending on your goals. 6-12 months
Some benefits of lip fillers with Juvéderm Ultra XC and Restylane include:
- Restore the lip border
- Minimize vertical lip liners or lipstick “bleed” lines
- Enhanced yet natural appearance
- Little to no side-effects
- Quick recovery
- Painless from start to finish with the use of lidocaine and a topical anesthetic
What to Expect from A Lip Augmentation?
During your lip augmentation procedure, Dr. McCoy will first apply a topical anesthetic to aid with any discomfort during and after your treatment. Then, a controlled amount of lip filler will be injected directly into your lips until your desired effects are reached. The treatment may also be done in stages, staggered in one-month intervals.
Bruising and swelling are common side effects after lip injections. Icing can help with the swelling, but it will usually resolve itself after 24 hours. Bruising can last up to 1 week after lip injections but can be easily disguised with makeup.
