Expectations from a Lip Injection
At Esteem Medical Spa, Dr. Glass conducts a medical evaluation and consultation with each patient. Prior to injection, your lips will be numbed by an anesthetic. Dr. Glass performs the lip injection with Juvéderm. After the procedure it is recommended that you use an ice pack to prevent swelling.
Let your doctor know if you’re taking ibuprofen, aspirin, blood thinners, Vitamin E or any herbal preparations. These medications may cause additional bruising, but it will resolve in a few days. Avoid the burden.
Juvéderm Lip Injections
Juvéderm lip injections provide plump and smooth results thanks to the naturally occurring sugar called hyaluronic acid. The product works by adding volume and attracting water which plumps the lips, decreases lip lines, and results in a more youthful and attractive appearance. In other words, Juvéderm helps to replace the muscle and fat lost with age, or volumizes genetically thin lips.
Expect to enjoy the fullness of your lips for six months to one year after your lip injection.
Some people metabolize the product faster than others. It’s difficult to predict the duration of results for each patient, but satisfaction for this lip enhancement procedure is extremely high.
