The secret to achieving the look you want isn’t in a suction cup or web challenge, it’s simply in lip injections with HA fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. It’s trending around Pasadena, as well as the greater Los Angeles area, as it’s popular among celebrities; and even on social media. We can even help you achieve a new look for your wedding with our bridal services. Aesthetic beauty treatments have become part of the cultural norm today, so why not get your lips ready for the most important kiss of your life on your big day?
How do Lip Injections Work?
Our facility carries Juvederm and Restylane to perform lip injections. They have a gel consistency made from HA, or hyaluronic acid, which is a component that’s naturally found in our bodies. HA fillers are good for adding volume to a targeted area and creating a smooth surface. This is because the HA gel bonds with the water under your skin and stimulates collagen production.*
Is it Painful?
Typically, patients feel little to no pain or discomfort during a treatment for lip injections.* Fillers such as Juvederm contain lidocaine, which can relieve pain and numb the skin. Anesthetics are not required for this treatment, as it’s nonsurgical. If you are however wary of feeling pain, the doctor performing the treatment may provide you with ice or a cold pack prior to starting. This should help numb the area before the injections are administered.*
What is the Treatment like?
A treatment for lip injections is quick (usually about 20-30 minutes).* The injections are quick, but the number of injections are specific to the patient. Some patients desire a very full look that start out with thin lips; these patients are likely to receive more injections. Patients can get a clear idea of what to expect during their treatment during a consultation. At that time, the doctor will address any concerns or questions you may have, you can voice your beauty goals, determine a treatment plan, and receive instruction on what to do before and after the treatment.*
As with any treatment, results vary depending on the patient’s lips and how many injections they receive. HA fillers can be expected to give you lasting results for up to a year. Some patients however, may require more than one session to achieve the desired results. This is where the consultation comes in, so that you can discuss your expectations.*
