What are Lip Injections?

At Skin Care at 5th Ave., we use JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC, an injection that is specifically used on the lips and mouth area. It is a smooth gel filler that is injected using an ultra-fine needle. This dermal filler has been specifically developed as a smooth gel to provide a soft, natural feel. This gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid attracts and retains moisture, so luscious, full, head-turning results can last up to a year. Compared to extensive plastic surgery, our dermal fillers can make more natural changes to your face. You’ll be able to appear younger without looking like you’ve had work done.

What are the Benefits of Lip Injections?

Our Lip Filler patients in the Atlanta adjacent area have enjoyed the following benefits from their Lip Injection treatment:

  • Reduces symptoms of various conditions
  • Little-to-no side effects
  • Quick recovery time
  • Stimulated collagen
  • Non-Surgical Procedure
  • Enhanced confidence
  • Create youthful appearance

It’s important to note, Lip Injections don’t prevent the aging process, but they might help slow or remove the need for a more invasive surgical lip augmentation, like lip implants or a lip lift.

What to Expect on the Day of Lip Fillers

On the day of your lip fillers, expect to be welcomed like you’re arriving at a luxurious spa, except with this experience, you leave with a new and enhanced version of yourself! We begin by applying a topical numbing cream on your lips to eliminate any chance of pain so that you can feel relaxed and confident during the procedure. Dr. Galitzin will then use a very thin needle to inject JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC into specific areas of your lips; this could take place on the edges of your lips (vermillion border), the curve in the center of your upper lip (Cupid’s bow), and your oral commissures (corners of your mouth). The entire process should only take about 30-60 minutes; this varies with each patient.

Avoid strenuous activity for a day or two following your appointment. Minor bruising may occur, which subsides in the days after your Injections. The results of your Injections can last for months to years, even though the injections take only minutes to administer.

Lip Fillers FAQs

Are Lip Injections painful?

Lip Injections are not painful due to the numbing cream that is applied before your treatment. You may feel a slight pinch from the needle, but it should be rather quick and virtually painless. The procedure is generally pain-free, and we find the excitement for our patients strongly outweighs any discomfort.

How many appointments will I need?

The number of appointments needed for Lip Injections may be based on the desired results of your lips. Most patients only require one appointment to achieve the desired fullness. During your consultation, you can discuss the possibilities of what can be achieved for your lips with more appointments, as well as learn about the proper care needed to make your results long-lasting. 

How long until I see results?

You should be able to recognize some immediate results after your Injections, and once the bruising or swelling subsides, you will be able to enjoy the results for up to 18 months. Quarterly appointments may be needed to sustain the results of more dramatic looks.

Can I combine Lip Injections with other procedures?

Occasionally, our Atlanta area Lip Injection patients look to combine their treatments with other skin-enhancing or dermal fillers. If you have any particular area that you would like to enhance or have Dr. Galitzin examine, please bring it up during your consultation.

What are the risks associated with Lip Injections?

With every procedure, there are some possible side effects that every patient should be aware of, which can include, but are not limited to:
  • Bleeding and pain at the injection sites
  • Cold sore reactivation
  • Discoloration or tenderness
  • Dizzyness
  • Filler migration (the lip filler may bleed into other areas of your face, usually toward the nose)
  • Infection
  • Nausea
  • Tissue death (a.k.a. vascular compromise, which can occur if lip filler is injected into or around an artery)
  • Your lips may be of different sizes (asymmetry)
Please contact our office immediately if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
