How do Lip Fillers Work?

So now you may be interested in finding out how this miraculous procedure works. First off, it is important to know that there are different types of lip filler, including Juvederm and Restylane. When you come to speak with our specialist, let them know what kind of look you are going for, i.e., if you want plumper, Kylie Jenner-esque lips or if you simply want yours to be slightly contoured. This will help to determine the amount of filler that will be used, as well as the type. The amount of filler is determined in terms of milliliters; usually, you will get 0.5 or 1 mL of filler for your first visit, but again, this is at the discretion of the specialist.

It is important to note that the main ingredient in lip fillers NYC is hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies, but as we get older, the amount of hyaluronic acid that is produced decreases. While its main purpose is to provide moisture, it also works to give extra volume. With the use of hyaluronic acid fillers, you will be able to replace and enhance the volume in all parts of your face that have lost or were genetically lacking natural plumpness. When you get lip injections NYC, you will be able to naturally add volume to your lips without worrying about foreign substance side effects.

Once it has been decided how much and what kind of filler will be used, the specialist will mark the areas to be injected with a pen. Then, your lips will get numbed using a topical anesthetic. After the anesthetic has taken effect, the professional will then begin the procedure. It only takes 15-20 minutes and after the injections are finished your lips will be gently massaged to make sure that the hyaluronic acid has been evenly distributed. You will be able to see these results immediately!

Frequently Asked Questions About Lip Injections

Do lip fillers hurt?

Prior to the procedure, our specialist will apply a strong numbing cream to the area to prevent any pain. But since your lips are one of the most sensitive parts of your body, you may feel a prick, and some pressure during the procedure.

Are lip injections safe?

Lip fillers are completely safe as they are made with an ingredient that is naturally occurring in our bodies called hyaluronic acid. This even means that your risk of having an allergic or foreign body reaction is virtually non-existent. Since incisions and surgery are not necessary, there are no serious side effects that you need to worry about. And even better – if you are not completely pleased with the way your lip fillers look, the effects are very easy to reverse.

How much do lip injections cost?

The cost of lip fillers will depend on the type of filler that your specialist will decide to use and how much filler you need, but they generally cost between $500-$1200 for 1 syringe depending on the look you are trying to achieve. Be sure to contact us at Skinly Aesthetics to get some of the most competitive packages in New York.

How long do lip fillers last?

Lip injections tend to last anywhere from 6 to 15 months, all depending on the rate at which your body can break down the hyaluronic acid and the filler that was used. You may even notice that they last longer than expected.

When will I see my lip injections results?

The results are visible right away, but you might notice some bruising or swelling for a few days after the procedure. Wait around 3 days post injection to see the final result.

How long does the lip augmentation procedure take?

Lip injections are one of the many procedures that are referred to as “lunchtime procedures” because of how fast they take to perform. The actual procedure itself should only take around 15-20 minutes, but plan some more time in advance for the consultation and for the anesthetic to take effect.

What are the lip injections side effects?

Even though lip enhancement is a completely safe procedure when done by an experienced professional, there are still some expected minimal side effects. These usually include swelling, bruising, and mild tenderness at the injection sites. But these are temporary and should only last you a few days at most.

Where is the best place to get lip injections?

The best way to make sure that you will get the results you desire is to do a research on the clinic, doctor and other professionals as well as social media testimonials. Our professionals at Skinly Aesthetics are highly reputable, licensed, and experienced in any enhancement procedure that you could think of.
