Lip Injections Q & A

Why Would I Get Lip Injections?

Lip injections are a form of lip augmentation that increases the volume of the lips and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Injections are a less invasive option than other lip augmentation procedures that still provide excellent results. Dr. Yuen will carefully inject FDA-approved dermal fillers into your lips to increase the volume and plumpness, restoring a more youthful appearance.

What Are Lip Injections and How Do They Work?

Lip injections utilize dermal fillers but focus on specifically restoring the volume and appearance of the lips. The injections use gels made of safe, gentle ingredients, like collagen and hyaluronic acid that imitate natural texture and work with the body to smooth undesired lines. They restore volume to the lips when they have lost youthful fullness due to the normal aging process.

What Are the Benefits of Lip Injections?

Dr. Yuen helps his patients to restore the youthful fullness of their lips with safe and effective lip injections. In addition to providing a natural fullness to the lips, these injections also address the fine lines that appear around the lips and mouth. The doctor controls the volume of the injection, making small, gradual injections to ensure that the lips maintain a natural and healthy look.

What Should I Expect From Lip Injection Treatment?

In most situations, lip injection treatments last between 10 and 20 minutes. Each patient has different needs, which may result in the treatment take a little less or a little more time. When a filler treatment is chosen, a set of small injections under the surface of the skin will be performed and the amount administered will depend on what brand of filler is used as well as the condition of the patient’s lips.
