Could your lips use a little (or a lot of) plumping? Well defined and full lips can characterize a youthful and attractive mouth. However, as we age our lips also lose volume and definition. Collagen breakdown and thinning muscles around the lips are inevitable and will eventually result in lips that appear deflated. Lines around the border of the lips become more noticeable and can even cause lipstick to run. You may not be experiencing any of these issues but seek to have more full kissable lips. Whatever the case may be our Nurse Practitioner can help you achieve the results you want.
Q. How does Lip Enhancement Work?
A. With the use of specific derma fillers, lips can be rejuvenated and restored to your desired volume and shape. Our Nurse Practitioner uses a synthetic smooth gel form of hyaluronic acid specifically made for lips. The hyaluronic acid used is almost identical to that naturally found in the body and is completely biologically degradable.
Q. What should I expect with a Lip Enhancement treatment at Drift Medi-Spa?
A. Before treatment, you will receive a complimentary consultation with our Nurse Practitioner who will address your concerns and create a customized treatment plan. If you decide to have treatment completed our Nurse Practitioner will apply a topical anesthetic to your lips to minimize any discomfort related to the injection. A very fine micro needle is used to place filler to create your ideal shape and fullness. Mild swelling, redness and possible bruising are common but generally improve within 2-3 days, and in some individuals up to a week.
Q. How long will results last for?
A. Results can last anywhere from 6-12months and varies between individuals due to our unique physiology.
Q. Do the injections hurt?
A. Pain is very individualized and dependant to one’s tolerance to pain. Prior to treatment a topical anesthetic cream is applied, which takes about 20-30 minutes to take effect. In addition, the product used also contains Lidocaine which provides additional numbing following injection.
