What Will My Lips Look Like?
The first thing to note is that everyone's goals and results will be different. We know it can be temping to expect to get a treatment and have lips just like someone else but this is not something that can be guaranteed. In general, we will do our best to ensure that your lips will look fuller and that you are happy with the results after treatment.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
There are several factors that can affect how long a treatment will take. However, as a general estimate count on the procedure taking about 30 minutes to complete. If there are extra requirements it may take slightly longer but we will do our best to give you an accurate time estimate when you come in.
Is It Painful?
Many clients feel minor discomfort during the treatment and some minor swelling and soreness at the injection site after treatment for a couple days. However, many would describe the pain level as being less than hair removal. On a scale of 1 - 10 it probably falls in the 2-3 realm.
How Long Do Results Last?
Most lip injection treatments can last around 2-6 months depending on various factors such as the product used and the amount and what you consider to be an ideal lasting result. What we mean by this is that after a lip injection your lips are as big as they are going to get and will start to reduce is size as time goes on. Even though the results may still be visible after 4 months it may not be as pronounced as you would like at this point and would require another treatment.
Is There Any Downtime?
There isn't any downtime required after the treatment however, it's highly recommended that you avoid strenuous activity such as working out for 24 hours. Excess strain may cause your injections to leak out at the injection site until the injection hole has fully healed shut.
What Are Common Side-Effects?
The most common side effects are slight soreness, redness and bruising at the injection site. Other side effects such as swelling can occur - major swelling typically lasts less than 4 days and minor residual swelling can last 2-3 weeks. There are additional side effects that can come up with facial injections - be sure to come in for a free consultation where we can explain all of these to you.
