With lip injections, patients can enhance lip shape and volume without the use of surgery or other invasive techniques. Atlantic Surgical Associates is proud to offer this service to patients living in New Brunswick, Edison, West Long Branch, and the surrounding areas of New York and New Jersey.
What Are Lip Injections?
Lip injections are a non-surgical lip augmentation procedure that use dermal fillers to enhance the shape and size of the lips. This treatment offers many of the benefits of dermal filler and injectable treatments, such as quick results, affordability, and minimal downtime. These benefits become especially evident when you compare lip injections to surgical lip enhancement procedures. At Atlantic Surgical Associates, we use Juvéderm® products for lip injections. The smooth gel formulas of Juvéderm® products allow us to provide patients with results as subtle or as dramatic as they would like.
How Much Do Lip Injections Cost?
The cost of your lip injection treatment will vary depending on your desired results and the extent of treatment required to produce those results. During your consultation, you and Dr. Volshteyn will discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the best approach to your lip injection treatment. Once your treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the cost of your treatment. To learn more about what you can expect and how you can pay for your treatment, please refer to our page on plastic surgery financing.
What is the Lip Injection Treatment Like?
Before your lip injection treatment, we will apply a topical anesthetic to the skin in order to minimize any discomfort from the injection process. The Juvéderm® formula also contains lidocaine, a local numbing agent, which helps to further minimize discomfort. Once the skin is adequately numbed, injections will be performed in and around the lips. After the injections are performed, the lips may be lightly massaged to ensure that the Juvéderm® product is evenly distributed throughout the lips. The injection process takes only a few minutes, meaning that the entire lip injection treatment takes less than 30 minutes. This makes it a convenient solution for patients with a busy schedule or for those who are trying to squeeze in a cosmetic treatment during their lunch break.
Is There Any Downtime After the Lip Injection Treatment?
Lip injections, like other dermal filler and injectable treatments, require absolutely no downtime or recovery period. In fact, you will be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after your appointment. Patients can expect minor swelling, bruising or redness in the treatment area, but these effects typically fade within a day or two.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Lip Injections?
The results from lip injections are visible instantly. You will notice an improvement in lip volume and shape, as well as a reduction in fine lines around the mouth, immediately upon injection. These results will improve further as any side effects from treatment fade. The duration of your lip injection results will depend on the Juvéderm® product used, but most patients enjoy results that last about one year.
