Lip augmentations are some of the most common cosmetic procedures right now. Mirabile M.D. in Overland Park, Kansas, has some advice for anyone looking for lip fillers in the area. Here are a few things to consider before getting lip filler!

What Are Your Lip Injection Goals?

During your consultation for lip injections, you should discuss certain things with your doctor or nurse injector. The first thing you need to relay to your aesthetic provider is your goal for the procedure. For example, are you hoping for more even lips or fuller lips? Many women come into a doctor to talk about how to have a more defined lip line to help keep the mouth looking youthful and to help lipstick stay put better. Lip structure is very important for many women. When your doctor understands what your goals are, they can better direct you in the type of injection that will give you the results that you are looking for.

The next thing you need to tell your injector is the size you want your lips to be. In most cases, an experienced injector can give you the look that you want to achieve. Your provider can again guide you to the products that will best suit your needs. This is also the time that your doctor or nurse injector can explain things like onset of results, expected duration of results and recommended frequency of treatment.

It is also very important that you ask any questions that you may have during the consultation. You don’t want to have any kind of procedure done if you still have questions about the process, recovery time, potential side effects, and anything else you still want to know before going in. A reputable provider will take time to answer your questions and not make you feel pressured to move forward before you’re ready.

Understanding Different Types of Dermal Fillers

There are different types of dermal fillers that will yield different results. While your injector should explain the options to you, we are here to break down our most popular options.

  • Juvéderm: Mirabile M.D. uses Juvéderm to increase the fullness of thin lips and smooth the appearance of lines on the lips. This treatment can also help smooth the area around the lips. At Mirabile M.D., we use multiple Juvéderm products including Juvederm XC VolumaXC and VollureXC.
  • Restylane Silk: Restylane Silk is a treatment option that can help smooth the lip area including vertical lip lines and add volume to help the lips appear plumper. With Restylane Silk, silkier, younger-looking lips are achievable.

To learn more about our treatment options, we recommend scheduling a consultation.

Are Lip Injections Forever?

Lip injections don’t last forever. In most cases, lip fillers will last for between six and 12 months. The results of this type of procedure will fade over time. This is why most providers will recommend a course of treatments over months and years to keep the look you desire in a more long-term capacity. Some fillers will have a more permanent effect, however. Make sure that you understand how long your lips will look the way you want them without additional intervention before you decide on the type of augmentation that you want.
