Asymmetrical or thin lips are a common source of frustration. Thankfully, there is a reliable way to change your lip appearance. Lip fillers are injections, usually made of hyaluronic acid, designed to help increase lip volume and correct any irregularities in shape.
Lip filler treatment is relatively straightforward and usually takes under 30 minutes. With careful attention from our dedicated staff at The Lifestyle Center, you can enjoy fuller, smoother lips that reflect your aesthetic goals.
Lip fillers are an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure that can help turn back the clock while also providing a natural enhancement of your facial features. When injected into the lips, fillers enhance the lips’ shape and make them appear fuller and smoother.
The great thing about lip fillers is that they can be customized to each individual depending on their desired effect, with a range of different formulas available. Plus, the results are temporary, so you can get the perfect look without worrying about it being permanent if you decide you want to go in a different direction later.
As we age, collagen production in our lips decreases, causing them to thin and lose their natural shape and volume. Lip fillers provide a safe, nonsurgical solution to this problem by gently enhancing the lip line and restoring naturally youthful contours. Lip fillers can also bring confidence and satisfaction to those who naturally have thin lips regardless of age and seek fuller lips that look natural and beautiful. The procedure is relatively quick and easy, with little to no downtime.
If you are considering lip fillers, you might wonder if you are a good candidate. Generally speaking, anyone over the age of 18 who is looking to plump their lips or reduce fine lines and wrinkles that form around the mouth may be a candidate for this procedure. Lip fillers are also an excellent option if you want to enhance thinning lips or define your cupid’s bow.
In addition, this noninvasive procedure can balance out asymmetrical lips remarkably well. To ensure that you are a suitable candidate for lip fillers, it is best to consult with our highly trained medical staff. With our team’s extensive experience in aesthetic treatments, we can determine if lip fillers will yield the desired outcome and which type of filler would work best for your needs.
Learning what to expect from the lip filler procedure can help put your mind at ease. Before the procedure, you will have a consultation with one of our medical professionals to discuss the preparation, process and aftercare. Your provider will determine a treatment plan based on your goals and your lip anatomy.
Lip fillers are a relatively comfortable treatment. You will likely feel some pressure and/or a pinching sensation as it is being injected, but most patients do not experience significant or sustained pain. Pain management options can be discussed if you are concerned about discomfort during the treatment.
Once the area is preapred for treatment, your provider will carefully inject lip filler using a fine needle into strategic points around your lips. An entire treatment usually takes up to half an hour with results appearing immediately after the procedure has ended.
Lip filler recovery should be relatively comfortable and straightforward. Immediately after the procedure, the area may feel slightly tender, swollen or bruised. You should refrain from massaging the treatment area for up to two days after the procedure to avoid disrupting the even distribution of the product.
Over-the-counter pain relief, such as ibuprofen, can help with any discomfort you’re feeling. Ice packs may be applied for up to 24 hours following injection to reduce swelling. These symptoms typically dissipate within a few days but may take seven to 10 days in rare cases. During this time, it is important to follow all post-care instructions from your provider so you can experience optimal results.
Lip fillers can help to restore and enhance the shape, volume and hydration of your lips. Depending on personal preference, results can range from subtle enhancement for a naturally fuller look or may be more noticeable for a dramatic plumping effect. Lip filler typically lasts up to six months or longer, and effects will start to fade as your body metabolizes the product.
It is important to note that continued treatments are necessary to maintain your results. To ensure optimal satisfaction, consult with a qualified practitioner like our experienced nurse injectors who can discuss your expectations and goals before proceeding. A personalized treatment plan allows you to enjoy beautiful lips safely and confidently.
Combining lip fillers with other cosmetic procedures can help you achieve the look you’re aiming for with only one trip to our St. Louis medical spa. Though it may depend on a variety of factors — such as the type of procedure being done and your individual health history — treatments such as lip fillers, Botox, and other injectables typically work well together.
As always, it is important to consult your provider before getting any procedure, especially if you plan on combining them. This will help ensure your safety and that your treatment plan is tailored to your specific beauty goals.
Lip fillers can vary in cost depending on a few factors: the type of lip filler being used, the amount of product needed and the region in which treatment is being performed. Generally, lip fillers cost between $600-$1500.
