SKIN’s Lip Enhancement Program
As a principle feature of our face, our lips are always on display. SKIN MediSpa’s Lip Enhancement Program can help to improve the appearance of your lips by adding volume to thin or disproportionate lips, giving your lips definition, and softening the contours of your mouth.
The first step in the lip enhancement process is a complimentary one-on-one consultation with our medical director with over 20 years experience in creating beautiful aesthetic outcomes for patients of all ages. During your consultation , concerns related to the appearance of your lips will be discussed and the appropriate steps for enhancement will be determined.
Injectable Fillers: SKIN MediSpa offers various types of injectable fillers and methods of injection to ensure you achieve the result you desire! During your consultation with our medical director, concerns related to the appearance of your lips will be discussed and the appropriate steps for enhancement will be determined.
- Volume: Address thin or disproportionate lips. Filler is injected into both the body and border of the lip, plumping your lips to the perfect pout.
- Border: Address an undefined lip border. Filler is injected along the vermillion border of the lip, outlining the natural curve of your smile.
- Contours: Address the signs of aging and dehydration. Filler is injected directly into visible lip lines, leaving your lips looking naturally youthful and restored.
Due to the safe and compatible materials used in the Injectable Fillers at SKIN MediSpa, no pre-testing of any kind is required. The injectable products will remain soft and take on the characteristics of the surrounding tissue.
During your lip enhancement procedure a mild localized anesthetic can be used to minimize or usually eliminate the pain associated with this type of treatment. The numbing effects will wear off in 15 minutes to as long as a couple of hours depending on the anesthetic used.
Following Your Lip Enhancement Procedure:
There is minor inflammation or swelling from the treatment as a result of the expansion of the lip tissue. This normally resolves well within 24 hours but has been reported to last as long as 48 hours for some patients. Most patients resume normal activities only a few hours after receiving treatment. Application of ice intermittently for a short period after the treatment will help reduce swelling. You should avoid as much as possible, activities that will strain your facial features for 48 hours following treatment. For example, activities such as strenuous laughing, using a straw, and chewing gum should be avoided.
Results are immediate and long lasting. The duration of the result is dependent on the type of injectable filler chosen, but most clients find lip enhancement procedures last anywhere from 6 to 9 months, though individual results may vary.
As the amount of volume required will vary from client to client, the associated cost will vary as well. However, a quote will be provided during the initial assessment process.
