What are lip injections?

Lip fillers are a cosmetic treatment that adds volume to your lips. They are often paired with neuromodulators such as Botox to improve the look of the lips. Lip fillers typically consist of a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in your body. Commonly requested types of lip fillers include Juvederm and Restylane.

Are lip injections safe?

Yes. Lip fillers are an aesthetic treatment and are considered safe when performed by an experienced healthcare provider. Dr. Larsen is a double board-certified plastic surgeon who has carefully selected his team members at LUX who share his vision for precision treatment and impeccable client care.

How do lip injections work?

Most lip fillers are made with an ingredient called hyaluronic acid, a natural product responsible for locking moisture into the skin. Its often found in hair and skincare products. In addition, most lip fillers contain numbing medication lidocaine and the filler to create a painless process. At LUX, we have a wide variety of lip fillers to choose from, so you’ll find the right product. They are all proven to enhance the appearance of lips that might otherwise be too thin. Our talented medical staff will answer all your questions and help you determine the right one for you. 

Injectables Guide

How long do lip injections last?

Like any injectable, it will be different in each patient depending on the type of injectable you use and how fast your body metabolizes that product. Typically most lip fillers can last between 12-18 months. 

What services are commonly paired with lip injections?

Some people opt for Botox along with or in place of lip fillers. Botox can be injected into the muscles around the lips, which will slightly relax your lips, giving you a slight pout without adding any volume so your lips will stay the same size. 

Botox around the mouth can also prevent the muscle from making exaggerated motions which are common culprits for causing lines to form around the mouth. This is also highly requested as a preventative measure to prevent deep lines from forming. These procedures can turn your frown upside down!

Am I a good candidate for lip injections?

Getting a cosmetic procedure done is a personal decision; many of our patients receive lip injections to boost self-esteem and body confidence. The best candidates for lip fillers and good overall health have realistic expectations not currently dealing with any active oral infections, including canker sores or cold sores. 

Many people who are considering lip injections want to increase their lip size. There are several reasons for this; some patients want to restore their previous lip size because our lips get smaller and thinner as we age. Other patients want to correct the shape of the lips; it’s common for your lips to be different sizes or shapes the human body is often asymmetrical. And some patients simply wish to smooth wrinkles. When you smile, laugh, drink from a straw, or smoke, wrinkles can develop around the sides of your mouth. Most of our patients who seek lip filler simply want a confidence boost. Lip fillers can help improve your self-esteem and body image. 

What is a lip flip?

Many patients interested in lip injections are curious about the lip flip. This is a quick in-office cosmetic procedure that takes about 20 minutes. This procedure involved the injection of Botox into the middle of the top of your lips (often called Cupids Bow) and the corners of your mouth. This injection temporarily relaxes muscles around your lip. This causes the part of your upper lip inside your mouth to “flip” upward and outward, giving more of a pout to your lips and providing them with a fuller appearance.
