Lip Injections Q & A

What are lip injections?

As you age, your lips naturally lose volume.  Lip injections are used to achieve fuller, plumper lips as well as reduce fine lines around the mouth area. Dermal fillers are usually used to create lips with more structure and shape. At Skin Deep Laser MD, Dr. Riehm offers Juvéderm® as well as other dermal fillers to plump your lips and reduce the lines around the mouth known as smoker’s lines.

What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid to promote volume and shape. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by your body, but production slows down as you age. As a result, your lips may thin and become lined. By injecting the hyaluronic acid compound into your lips, you get improvements in their volume, structure, and shape.

What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid fillers for the lips?

Hyaluronic acid fillers use a substance much like that already found in your body, so it’s unlikely you’ll have a negative reaction. The benefits of Juvéderm and other hyaluronic acid fillers include:

  • Great control: Dr. Riehm can control how much she injects to customize your look
  • Gradual pace: You can elect to have small amounts injected over several visits to achieve the look you want
  • Less bruising: Hyaluronic fillers result in less bruising than other fillers

The results of hyaluronic acid fillers are smooth, and any bumps or lumps dissolve easily, giving you a natural appearance.

How long do the results of lip injections last?

Longevity of filler in the lips varies depending on which product is used. The results of Juvederm last four to six months. Vollure and Versa can last nine to twelve months. After that, you can receive additional treatments to maintain your look. Dr. Riehm can put together a treatment schedule for you so your look stays consistent.

What are the side effects of lip injections?

You may have mild bruising, swelling, or redness at the injection sites immediately after treatment. These side effects last just a few days and then subside. The injections have been proven safe through multiple studies.
