Do you have thin lips, but long for plump ones that would rival that of celebrities? If so, you’re not alone. A lot of people want to achieve the popular trend of full lips, but it’s not always as easy as it seems.

That’s where cosmetic lip injections come in! Before you get them done, here’s what you need to know about lip injections. 


What type of injections should I get for fuller lips?


The best options for fuller lips are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. In more common terms, these are injections like Restylane and Juvederm that offer a soft, natural look and feel to your lips. Plus, if you decide you don’t like the results, these treatments are reversible.


Who should administer my lip injections?


You should only get lip injections from a board-certified professional who has a lot of experience in injections and facial anatomy.


How quickly will I see results?


While you’ll probably experience a bit of swelling after your treatment, you should see the results of your lip injections immediately. After 24 hours, when the fillers have had time to settle, you’ll be able to see the final results.


How long do lip injections last?


On average, lip injections last four to six months. However, if you’re on the skinnier side, your body may metabolize the HA fillers faster and the treatment won’t last as long.


Do lip injections hurt?


Not as much as you’ve probably heard. You’ll likely feel little pinches during your treatment, but you may also choose to have your lips numbed with a topical anesthetic or dental nerve block.


How long to lip injections take?


Usually, your treatment will take around 15-20 minutes, and then you’re free to go about your day.
