What do Lip Injections do?

What does a lip Injection do? Lip injections, or lip fillers, are a non-invasive cosmetic procedure to volumize and plumps lips. At Scarless MedSpa, Dr. Deepak Dugar prefers to use hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, it is primarily used to maintain moisture in the body. When used in the lips, hyaluronic acid not only adds volume when injected, but also allows the lips to maintain even more moisture, all contributing to a plumper and full lip. Hyaluronic acid is a favorable filler because it is reversible. If the patient is unhappy with their results, or their doctor deems it necessary, hyaluronic acid fillers can easily be dissolved.

Individuals getting lip injections can range from young adults to older patients. Some patients who receive lip injections simply want more plump lips. However, Scarless MedSpa sees a range of ages for lip filler depending on the individual’s needs. Some patients are older, and get lip injections to restore volume in the lips that naturally decrease with age. There are many benefits to lip fillers. With immediate effects, an individual may feel more confident and comfortable, which can benefit their social and professional lives.

Filler in the lips tends to last six to twelve months. Fillers from Scarless MedSpa have no downtime. Some patients may experience slight swelling after the initial injections, but with a few minutes of icing the swelling is expected to go down, leaving behind the enhanced lips. Additionally, there is little risk involved with hyaluronic acid filler. Risk of allergic reaction to the filler itself is highly unlikely because hyaluronic acid is already naturally produced in the body. If the filler needs to be removed, hyaluronic acid filler is not permanent and can easily be dissolved with a certified professional.

With the goal of simply enhancing his patient’s lips, Dr. Dugar can augment the shape, structure, and volume of the lips in a natural, subtle way. The procedure itself takes thirty minutes or less. First, the skin is prepped and cleaned. Because the hyaluronic acid filler is injected with a needle, patients tend to receive numbing cream, usually lidocaine, to decrease any discomfort from the needle. After discussing with a trained professional about what your desires for your lips are, the trained professional will gently insert the filler in various spots along the lips to achieve fuller, plumper lips according to the patient’s desires. Dr. Dugar believes in using cosmetic procedures for natural enhancements. No patient leaves the Scarless MedSpa with entirely new features. Instead, they leave with improved versions of their natural selves. To learn more about Scarless MedSpa and their lip injection options, see here.

Remember that for best results it is important to seek out the work of a trained expert and to only use products that are FDA approved and regulated.
