Lip Filler

What are lip fillers?

Lip fillers are injectable cosmetic treatments that adjust the shape or size of your lips, with results that last for months. There are several types of lip fillers for you and your doctor at The Injection Room to choose from after considering your medical history and the results you’re trying to achieve. 

Lip fillers can:

  • Make your lips appear plumper
  • Define the edges of your lips
  • Make your lips more symmetrical
  • Adjust the shape of your lips (e.g., poutier or more heart-shaped)

You may notice that your lips lose volume as you age. Lip fillers return the structure to your lips and make you look younger overall.

How do lip fillers work?

Hyaluronic acid, or a similar gel-like substance, is the main component of most fillers. Your body already produces hyaluronic acid to hold moisture and keep your skin hydrated. When used in lip injections, hyaluronic acid or imitation molecules attach to water molecules in your lips to keep them supple and rounded. 

The substance is also easy for your doctor to control and shape, so you have a high chance of getting your desired look.

What should I expect during my lip filler appointment?

Your lip filler appointment at The Injection Room begins with a topical numbing cream or a numbing injection. This ensures that you don’t feel the injections so you can relax during your treatment. Then, your doctor marks the injection points on your lips and uses a very thin needle to carefully inject the substance.

After all of your injections are finished, your doctor may give you a cold compress to apply to your lips. This helps reduce swelling and ease discomfort as the numbness wears off. 

What is the recovery like for lip fillers?

Once your procedure is over, you’ll notice a difference in the appearance of your lips right away. However, it still takes some time to recover and adjust. You might experience some modest side effects for the first few days, including:

  • Bleeding
  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Lumps and bumps
  • Discomfort
  • Activated cold sores

As long as you follow your doctor’s instructions for aftercare, you’ll experience a smooth recovery. If you have complications beyond these common mild symptoms, you should call The Injection Room as soon as possible.
