Injectable treatments have many applications. At Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center, we use injectables as a non-surgical lip augmentation technique. We offer this convenient lip enhancement treatment to patients living in Washington, DC, Stafford, and Vienna, VA.
What is Lip Enhancement?
Lip enhancement is a non-surgical lip augmentation technique that uses dermal fillers to add volume to the lips. At Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center, we may recommend Restylane®, Juvéderm®, or Radiesse® as part of your lip enhancement treatment. Many patients choose to have a lip enhancement treatment to avoid the surgery and high costs of lip augmentation. This technique also produces instant results, plumping the lips and diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
How Much Does Lip Enhancement Cost in Washington, DC?
The cost of your lip enhancement treatment will vary depending on the products used and the number of injections necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, we will evaluate your cosmetic goals to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this time, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of your treatment. We offer flexible financing options to ensure that each patient has access to the treatment that they need. We also accept cash, checks, and major credit cards for your convenience.
What is the Lip Enhancement Procedure Like?
Before the lip enhancement procedure, we will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the skin and minimize any discomfort during the injection process. Then, a number of injections will be made into and around the lips. A lip enhancement treatment is typically completed in less than an hour.
What is Recovery like After Lip Enhancement?
Since lip enhancement requires only the use of dermal fillers, there is no downtime or recovery following lip injection. You may experience mild swelling, bruising or tenderness around the lips, but these are common side effects that typically fade within a few days. Patients will be able to resume work and other normal activities immediately following their appointment.
When Will I Notice Results from My Lip Enhancement Treatment?
The results from your lip enhancement treatment will be visible immediately. You will notice more voluptuous lips and a reduction in fine lines around the mouth. The results from lip enhancement are natural-looking and can last up to 12 months depending on the product used.
