Lip injections are a popular dermal filler and injectable treatment because they can be used for both anti-aging purposes and for patients who just want to enhance the appearance of the lips. At Mardirossian Facial Aesthetics, we offer several lip injection treatments to the patients living in Virginia including McLean, Falls Church, Tysons, Arlington plus the Washington DC area.
What Are Lip Injections?
Lip injections are a non-surgical lip augmentation technique that can produce fuller, shapelier lips. Lip injections are a popular treatment because they appeal to patients of all ages. Many patients choose to pursue lip injections in order to address age-related volume loss, which has resulted in smaller lips and fine lines around the mouth. Even patients who aren’t noticing these effects may choose to have lip injections just to enhance the size and shape of the lips. At Mardirossian Facial Aesthetics, we offer multiple products for lip injections. These include:
How Much Do Lip Injections Cost?
The cost of lip injections will vary by patient. The cost of this treatment depends on the product used and the extent of treatment necessary to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Mardirossian will take these factors into consideration in order to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing services like CareCredit® to help make your treatment more affordable.
What is the Lip Injection Treatment Like?
The lip injection treatment is fairly simple, and begins with the application of a topical anesthetic. This will reduce any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. After the skin is numbed, the desired lip injection product will be injected into and around the lips. This process takes only a few minutes, which means the full Juvéderm® treatment is typically complete in less than 30 minutes.
What is Recovery Like After Lip Injections?
There is no recovery period or downtime necessary after the lip injection treatment. You may experience minor redness or swelling in the treatment area, but these effects are temporary and will usually fade within a day or two. You’ll be able to resume all normal activities immediately after your treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Lip injections?
Lip injections produce immediate results, so you will be able to see a difference in your lip volume before even leaving your appointment. These results may improve over the days following treatment as any minor side effects fade. The results from your lip injection treatment can last between six months and one year depending on the product used.
