Lip injections with dermal fillers and injectables is one of the best minimally invasive options for restoring volume to the lips. At Alta Vista Dermatology, we specialize in a number of injectable treatments to help patients achieve a natural-looking boost in volume. We offer lip injections to those living in the Denver and Highlands Ranch, CO, areas.
What Are Lip Injections?
Lip injections are a minimally invasive treatment option for patients looking to achieve an increase in lip volume. Over time, the lips can lose volume, making you look older than you are. With lip injections, you can achieve a subtle boost in lip volume, producing the voluptuous lips you desire. Many patients choose lip injections because they offer instant results with no downtime, avoiding the invasive procedures and recovery period that often comes with surgical methods.
What Products Are Used for Lip Injections?
At Alta Vista Dermatology, we may recommend one of the following productions for lip injections:
Juvéderm® Volbella is a Juvéderm® product specifically designed to add a subtle volume to the lips and reduce the appearance of fine lines around the mouth. However, we may be able to achieve more dramatic results by combining Juvéderm® Volbella with BOTOX®, Belotero®, or other injectable treatments. During your consultation, we will review your treatment goals and determine the combination of products that will best meet your cosmetic goals.
Restylane® Kysse is a Restylane® product specifically designed to add soft, natural-looking volume to the lips. Restylane® has engineered XpresHAn Technology™, which allows the lips to maintain natural movement and expressiveness despite the added lip volume. Restylane® Kyess also smooths upper lip lines and enhances lip color, with results that last up to 1 year.
What is the Lip Injection Treatment Like?
Lip injection treatments involve a number of injections into the lips and the surrounding area. Although these injections are typically tolerable, we offer patients a topical anesthetic if they are concerned about experiencing pain during treatment. Lip injection treatments are usually performed within 30 minutes. In some cases, patients may experience redness or swelling after treatment, but this usually fades on its own within a few hours. There is no downtime after lip injection treatments, so you can expect to return to work and other normal activities immediately after your appointment.
What Results Can I Expect from Lip Injections?
Lip injections produce instant results, so you can enjoy a natural increase in volume immediately following your appointment. The products we use for lip injections are designed to deliver natural, long-lasting results. With both Juvéderm® Volbella and Restylane® Kysse, you can enjoy results that are clinically proven to last up approximately 12 months.
How Much Do Lip Injections Cost?
To determine the exact cost of your lip injection treatment, we invite you to schedule a consultation at our office. During your consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan that will satisfy your unique needs and produce the best results possible. At that point, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your treatment. To help make our services affordable for our patients, we are proud to offer financing through CareCredit®. We also accept cash, checks and major credit cards.
