Whether you prefer a subtly-plumped pout or an ultra-glam look, lip fillers are one of the best ways to reach your aesthetic goals.

But before getting started with treatment, it is important to have a complete and accurate picture of lip injections, including how they work and want concerns they can address.

Continue reading to learn the ins and outs of lip fillers and if they’re right for you.

What Are Lip Injections?

Lip injections are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to enhance lip volume, definition, shape, and proportions.

The injectable treatment can also improve facial harmony and create a well-balanced appearance.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Lip Injections?

Healthy women and men who want to rejuvenate thinning lips and improve lip size, contours, and borders are usually excellent candidates for lip injections.

The in-office procedure, which usually takes less than 60 minutes, is especially well-suited to patients who want to augment lips, without downtime or permanent results.

What Are the Benefits of Lip Injections?

Lip injections offer a number of unique benefits.

To start, they are safe, effective, and nonsurgical, and provide immediate results, lasting six-to-12 months.

In addition, lip fillers can simultaneously enhance features as well as correct signs of aging and contour irregularities.

More specifically, lip injections have the ability to:

  • Add volume to thin lips
  • Increase lip size and fullness
  • Define lip borders
  • Enhance lip contours and symmetry
  • Smooth lip lines
  • Lift downturned corners of the mouth (oral commissures)
  • Improve lip hydration
  • Create a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance

In addition, hyaluronic acid lip injections can be fully or partially dissolved with an enzyme known as hyaluronidase. This allows patients to modify or reverse effects should they desire.
