Lip Injections FAQs
If you’re considering getting lip injections, these answers to some frequently asked questions will help you understand more about the treatments.
Are Lip Injections Painful?
After applying a topical anesthetic, your physician injects the hyaluronic acid using very tiny needles. The procedure is relatively painless.
How Long Does Treatment Usually Take?
You will initially spend some time with your physician discussing your expectations and medical history. The injections themselves only take about 15 – 30 minutes.
What Are the Side Effects and Recovery Time?
Side effects, if any, include minor redness, swelling, itching or tenderness. If side effects occur, they typically last less than 7 days. There is no recovery time and you can resume your normal activities right away.
What Results Can I Expect?
The results from Restylane® or JUVÉDERM® dermal filler lip injections are noticeable after treatment and can last about 6 – 8 months but vary from person to person. You can have a touch up done whenever you like to maintain a consistent appearance.
