Lip Augmentation with fillers
Whether you wish to correct thin lips or enhance your lip’s shape and appearance, lip fillers are a perfect way. For most ladies, lips for the face are like a cover for a book, the most eye-catching part. Over time, our lips lose volume and definition due to the normal aging process. However, some young clients elect to use lip filler injections to enhance the natural look and add volume early in their lives, depending on their lifestyle and profession. Moreover, oral muscles are one of the most used facial muscles, resulting in dynamic and static lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Therefore, lip fillers injection and Botox have rapidly become the leading cosmetic injectable treatment at Albany Cosmetic and Laser Center.
Are you a Candidate For Lip Injections?
As we mentioned before, we might suggest lip filler treatments to correct different issues, which vary by patient. Some patients have thin lips due to orthodontics; others feel that when they get very thin lips when they smile or notice a loss of volume due to various factors such as smoking.
We advise our clients to apply freezing cream before their appointment. The cream is available at any pharmacy and does not need an actual prescription. The fillers we use are premium cross-linked hyaluronic fillers such as Juvederm Restylane.
How long do lip fillers last?
The average is 4-6 months, depending on your age, lifestyle, and the amount and type of fillers. Some websites report that lip fillers may last up to 18 months; however, this is inaccurate and only used as a marketing point.
What are fillers’ side effects?
The procedure might include using sharp needles, and lips are very sensitive. Therefore, clients should expect swelling and bruises after the lip injection procedure. Most clients report heavy, tight feelings that may last up to three days.
Bruising, it might occur even with the most skillful injectors. Some bruising may last for one week but can be easily covered by makeup.
What is the cost of lip filler injection?
Cost may vary according to the case, but it is usually between 350-1200; the best is to book a consultation to discuss the option and the cost of the procedure.
