Lip injections increase the volume in your lips, giving you the full lips that you desire. Social media has allowed this procedure to slide its way into the mainstream, making it a common term in pop culture today. You can’t escape the images, they’re everywhere. From popular vloggers, to Facebook and world renowned celebrities, it’s no wonder why people are getting more and more curious about lip injections. There’s a reason for this: it works! Of course, individual results vary as far as the longevity of results and amount of injections, but you can expect to see and change in the volume of your lips. You should only receive lip injections from trained professional, such as those in our El Paso practice.
Is it Painful?
The specialist conducting the treatment will do everything they can to make you comfortable. That being said, topical anesthesia (or numbing cream) can be applied if you have a low tolerance for pain. Lip injections can be uncomfortable, but most patients report feeling mild pain that fades after the initial pinch of the injection.
How long does it take to see Results?
It may take six days or so for the swelling to go down and your lips to settle into their new, full shape. As stated before, it is specific to the individual. However, recovery time is typically one day.
How long will it last?
Lip injections can have a lasting effect of several months or so. You may need to get more injections throughout the year to keep up the look. Most patients report the injections lasting four to six months.
Any Side Effects?
It’s common to experience bruising, swelling and soreness for up to a week. Any rare or serious side effects can be observed for one or two weeks. If you ever have any concerns you should contact your doctor.
