If the pout you were born with isn’t what you had hoped for or your lips have thinned out with age, there’s no reason to feel like you have to live with it. According to Elle, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons released data showing lip procedures as the second-fastest growing facial procedure in the United States and were part of nearly 9.2 million injection procedures in 2015.
Subtle Volume is Key
Monarch Plastic Surgery Aesthetic Nurse Injection Specialist, Kristen Kneidel, RN, BSN, said “A lot of clients are afraid of receiving dermal filler to the lip area because they don't want results that look ‘overdone.’ However, filler to the lip area can look natural and soft, giving you back the youthful volume you once had. By rejuvenating the lips, you can add proportion and balance, as well as improve lip hydration.” Look how great these Juvederm Ultra Plus lip injections turned out performed by our very own Kristen Kneidel!
While the reason behind lip injections varies throughout the years, the treatment is sought out by people in their 20s through their 60s and beyond. Desired results can be seen with one treatment with minimal to no downtime. You may experience some minor swelling or bruising at the injection sites, which generally subsides within one-to-three days. While complications are unlikely, receiving treatment the day of an event isn’t advised. Typical results can last up to a year.
