Q&A: Lip Injections

Jul 30, 2014 | Blog, Skin Care

Do you think you’re a good candidate for lip injections? Then you’re among the many aging women who prefer to have the appearance of a fuller, more youthful smile. Lip injections are especially beneficial for those experiencing deep creases, folds, wrinkles, or sagging in their lips.


How much can I expect to pay for lip injections?

We invite everyone considering lip injections to take full advantage of our free consultation. Costs for dermal fillers vary. Injections with Juvederm Ultra Plus XC range from $400 to $475 per application.

How painful is the procedure? Will I be in pain afterwards?

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC injections are virtually painless because the filler consists of a thicker gel blend of hyaluronic gel with lidocaine.

Are there any risks associated with having lip injections? 

Our professional, fully-certified and highly trained staff are confident that we can walk you through the entire process with minimal risk. As with any cosmetic procedure however, some risk is associated with lip filler and lip injections. Minor risks may include some bruising, swelling, asymmetries, and lumps. Our office and staff has a sound reputation. We will diligently work with every client to ensure complete satisfaction.

How long can I expect the lip injections to last? 

Most lip injections, and especially lip injections with Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, can last up to twelve months.

Will I need to have multiple visits in order for a single application to take effect?

Depending on the look that you prefer, you may want to come back after six months of your initial lip injection.

Will I need to purchase additional products to maintain the appearance of my lip injections?

There are no additional maintenance products to purchase. As part of your aftercare, we recommend that you drink 8 glasses of water daily to help with overall hydration and to optimize results with filler.
