Lip Injections with Dermal Fillers

4 Things You Should Know BEFORE Lip Injections

You see fuller lips everywhere – in magazines, on TV, and of course Instagram. There is simply no getting away from it! Has all that exposure left you wondering what you can do about your own lips?

If your lips aren’t what you want them to be, why not try lip injections in DC? We all know they are safe, and they are clearly effective. However, don’t make the leap just yet until you read this!

  • Prepare

You need to prep for lip injections in DC in a couple of ways. First, prepare physically. You may need to stop taking blood thinners before your injections, so talk to your doctor about that. It’s a good idea to stay away from OTC products like aspirin and multivitamins for a time too.

Second, give lip injections real thought. Decide how you want your lips to look, and be realistic about your expectations.

  • Rely on Your Provider for Advice

Each filler such as Restylane and Juvéderm serves a different purpose and can achieve different looks. Juvéderm gives a more voluminous look, while Restylane is more subtle. Let your provider be your guide to what will work best for you.

  • Remember Lip Filler is Temporary

Your perfect lips forever sounds great, doesn’t it? But, that isn’t the case. Lip injections are temporary, lasting about four to six months, so expect to go back for more treatments if you want to keep or update your look.

  • You May or May Not Bruise

This is going to vary for each individual. You may bruise. It may be minimal, or you might not bruise at all. Following all pre-injection and aftercare instructions will go away a long way towards minimizing bruising, as well as other side effects.

I Got Lip Fillers for the First Time 

There was nothing wrong with my lips. They weren’t very thin. But nothing like Kylie Jenner’s either.

There was nothing wrong with my lips. They weren’t very thin. But nothing like Kylie Jenner’s either. The only way I’d get lip filler is if I got an offer I couldn’t refuse.

And Dr. Melissa Doft, as well respected a plastic surgeon as there is in New York, did just that. Free. The procedure was free. Hashtag unashamed. 

Here’s how it went.

Dr. Doft practices out of the Upper East Side. I asked her not to do anything too extreme. I was already satisfied with the general shape of my lips.

She told me she would be injecting a hyaluronic acid filler called Restylane Silk.

You can pick up face moisturizers rich with hyaluronic acid at any department store. What could be wrong with getting some of that into my lips?

I Wasn’t Worried, as Long as It Didn’t Hurt…

Dr. Doft applied a topical numbing goo. I didn’t even feel the fine needle she pricked my lips with. Then she dispersed the filler with a syringe.

The process is going on beneath the skin so there’s no way to completely numb that part so there was discomfort.

But if I can take it, anybody can. Most of the filler was used on my upper lip—as is typical, considering our bottom lips are generally already plumper than our top ones.

In all, the injection took no longer than 10 minutes. The swelling, though, lasted a bit longer.

Dr. Doft explained the kind of slight swelling I was experiencing was normal and how it wouldn’t last longer than three days. All my swelling was gone after 48 hours.

For the next three weeks, I would often forget even had the procedure. That is until laid on some lipstick and could really notice a wonderful lift to my lips.

Now another three months have passed, and the plump effect has faded slightly. Three month enhancement for 800 dollars? It’s noticeable. But you be the judge.
