Wanting the perfect pout? Then you've come to the right place! Lip injections are a safe, natural and easy way to restore volume and augment the shape of your lips with results that can last up to a year.
At Platinum Sculpt, we are proud to provide Juvéderm, the country's most well-known dermal filler, as well as Restalyne and Radiesse. Both are smooth gel fillers made of hyaluronic acid, a natural material located in the body that keeps your skin hydrated. Here's why we love them:
What You Can Expect
One of the most amazing things about lip injections is that they offer instant results-- you'll see fuller lips immediately after your appointment! And the results keep improving until the product fully settles in after about two weeks.
You'll begin your lip injection experience by discussing your preferred results with your clinician and aligning on the look and shape you desire, which will help your clinician determine how much of your syringe they will decide to use.
The actual injection only takes a few minutes. Does it hurt? It's slightly uncomfortable but usually bearable. Juvéderm formulas are infused with lidocaine, an anesthetic that will help reduce discomfort when injected. And if you're extra worried, you can request a topical anesthetic before your injection.
After your treatment, you'll be able to go back to your daily life with zero downtime! However, there are a few things you'll need to be aware of, including things to avoid and typical side effects like slight swelling or bruising.
Before Your Treatment
Ready to turn up the volume? We hear you. But before you come, you need to make sure you've reviewed and understand everything on this list. Or else, there's a possibility we won't be able to treat you, and no one wants that.
24 hours before your treatment
Avoid Alcohol: We advise avoiding alcohol to decrease your chances of bruising.
The day of your treatment
Prepare Something Healthy: Eat a full, healthy meal-- and avoid caffeine-- before your treatment to decrease your possibility of feeling dizzy or lightheaded during the treatment.
After Your Treatment
Before we go over your post-care instructions, here's what you can expect in terms of results. You will notice your filler results right away. It is common for the treated area to appear swollen for three to seven days. Two weeks after your appointment, the product will be settled and the treated area will feel softer yet still look full.
For the next 24 hours
Keep Cool: Avoid high, direct heat, including saunas, jacuzzis, and steam rooms. Additionally, avoid activities that trigger pressure or increase your body temperature like heavy lifting or intense exercise.
For the next 72 hours
Give Yourself A Massage: Lightly massage the treated area with Vaseline ® or Aquaphor ® several times a day for several days to help soften and shape the product.
For the next 2 weeks
Give Your Skin A Break: Avoid facials, aggressive rubbing, deep massaging or aggressive exfoliating in the area treated.
