Lip injections that involve the use of dermal fillers are often medically considered as temporary to semi-permanent lip enhancement. The most common procedure that is performed at YOUnique to achieve fuller, plump lips is through injection of dermal fillers such as Restylane®. This is a simple, minimally invasive office procedure that takes about 30 minutes.
The most popular dermal fillers used to achieve this type of lip augmentation are:
Another way to achieve fuller lips is through fat transfer. Fat is extracted from other parts of the body, most commonly the flanks, through liposuction. The fat is then separated, harvested and re-injected into the desired areas for fullness. This is a more permanent alternative to dermal fillers.
Permanent lip augmentation can be achieved through placement of a soft silicone lip implant. This procedure can be performed under local anesthesia or IV sedation.
A lip enhancer, also known as lip plumper is medically determined as a temporary solution to enhance the appearance of your lips. Results will likely only last a few hours depending on the product used. Most lip enhancer products cna be pirchased at a general drug store or even a makeup store like Sephora.
This is a non-recommended solution to semi-permanent and permanent lip augmentation.
Are Lip Injections Safe?
As with any cosmetic procedure, there are risks of complications. Also, depending on which method is chosen, there may be some associated downtime. Most commonly, patients should expect swelling, tenderness, redness at injection site, firmness, bleeding, and bruising.
