For many women, full, defined lips are impossible to achieve using makeup and contouring techniques. As more celebrities show off their luscious pouts on the red carpet, fuller lips are becoming more desireable. Women with thin, undefined lips often turn to injectable treatments to enhance their lips and improve their facial appearance.
What Are Lip Injections?
Lip enhancement treatment involves injections of a hyaluronic acid solution into the lips, which stimulates the production of collagen. The new surge of collagen increases the volume of the lips and helps create better definition. Dr. Messa uses Restylane® Silk to provide safe and effective lip enhancement.
- Painless treatments
- No recovery period
- Custom results
- Fast-acting improvement
- Natural-looking appearance
- Visible results for up to six months
What Is the Injection Process?
Lip injections are performed in-office for patients over 21 years of age. Restylane® Silk uses a lidocaine gel to numb the lips for a pain-free treatment. Dr. Messa will use a fine needle to inject the solution into the lips and shape and define your lip appearance. The whole treatment process takes less than one hour.
You will be able to see results within hours. However, some minor swelling may last for three days and affect your appearance. Once the redness and swelling have subsided, you will have natural-looking results that last for up to six months. Repeat treatments will be necessary to maintain your new lip appearance.
