What can I expect for results?
The results you get depend on the look that you want to achieve and how much filler is injected. For this reason, before any treatment the doctor will take time to discuss with you the desired look and the ways in which this can be achieved.
Where about are the injections given?
The injections can be given into the boarder of the lips and the pinks of the lips themselves. Though, it depends on the look we are wanting to create which will depend on where the injections are placed.
How long does the treatment last?
The treatment lasts approximately nine months. However, due to different people having different metabolisms this can be shorter or longer depending.
How many injections will I need?
The amount of injections will vary as it depends on the look you are aiming to achieve and the amount of filler being injected. Though, on average the number of injections is approximately 15.
Will the treatments hurt?
The lips can be numbed in one of two ways. Either numbing cream can be applied to the lips or a dental local anaesthetic block can be given. The dental block is an injection that gives complete numbness to the area but can cause the movement of the lips to change. That being the case, some people prefer the numbing cream. This lasts approximately five hours. The numbing cream does not completely block the pain of the injections but will ease it. The numbing cream has no effect on the movement of the lips.
