Recent beauty trends have declared that thin lips are out and juicy, plump lips are in. More people than ever seem to be getting lip filler injections to boost their self-confidence and show off the perfect pout. While lip filler injections provide fairly low maintenance, temporary results, you may find yourself asking if the recovery period after a session is just as easy.

What Are Lip Fillers?

Lip filler is a general term used to describe an umbrella of different injectables used to temporarily augment the lips. Most contain hyaluronic acid, which, when injected into the lips, can add temporary definition and volume. Different lip fillers can be used to create slightly varying effects. For example, Juvederm Volbella® is specifically tailored to soften fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth in addition to its lip plumping properties. Juvederm Ultra® aims to bring a sense of fullness, proportion, plumpness, and balance to the lips where age-related volume loss may have occurred. Due to its smaller particle size, this specific injectable is great for treating mild to moderate wrinkles.

What Should I Expect from Lip Filler Treatment?

From beginning to end, the procedure should take no more than 30 minutes. Depending on the lip filler you’ve selected, your doctor may choose to numb the lip area with lidocaine or a topical anesthetic. Afterward, the doctor will gently inject a fine needle containing the filler into the soft tissue of the dermis, resulting in an increase of volume and definition to the lips.

Recovery Time After Lip Filler Treatment

Since this specific form of lip augmentation is done through injections, there is virtually no recovery or downtime to be expected after the procedure. You should be able to return to your daily routine quite quickly after your session. However, it is not unlikely to experience bruising and swelling around the treatment area. These side effects should subside within a few days. If you are interested in learning more about lip fillers or scheduling a treatment, contact Atlanta Aesthetics today.
