In recent years, lip augmentations have taken the medspa world by storm, as countless patients seek to enhance and improve the shape and proportion of their lips. With so much interest, there is also a natural increase in questions, as patients seek to understand how a lip injection could impact their life. So if you have been wondering if lip augmentation results are permanent, here is what you should know:
The Results are Long-Lasting, Not Permanent
As with all injections, lip injections are not permanent. However, the results can be long-lasting, depending on the product used and the rate at which your body metabolizes it. In most cases, the filler will be a hyaluronic acid-based filler, such as Juvederm® or Volbella®, which can last approximately six months. After that time, if you are interested in maintaining your look, you will need to schedule maintenance appointments.
Your Cost is Individual
Every lip is unique and, as a result, the cost of each lip augmentation procedure is calculated on an individual basis. This allows us to accurately assess the exact price, based on your desired goals. Although you may have an idea in mind of what you would like your lips to look like, Dr. DePerro will also provide his professional opinion, based on years of experience with cosmetic improvement.
In order to make our procedures more accessible to all of our patients, we are glad to accept a wide range of payment options, including financing through CareCredit®. Pricing and payment will be discussed at the time of your consultation, so you can feel well-informed as to what you should expect.
Results are Immediate
One of the best aspects of lip augmentation is that you will be able to see the results of your procedure almost immediately. With zero required downtime, you will be back out and on your way, as soon as your injections are complete. Although some swelling and redness may occur, this is normal and will resolve on its own.
