The Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, Lip Injections

If you’ve been considering lip injections in the Kitchener-Waterloo area, but you’re hesitant to take the plunge because you just don’t know what to expect, this blog is for you! We’re answering your most common questions about this popular treatment so that you can plump your pout with confidence.

What are lip injections?

First things first. Lip injections involve the skillful injection of dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM®, Restylane® or BELOTERO® into the lips to improve volume, definition and shape.

How do lip injections work?

The dermal fillers we use contain hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body. Once injected into the lips, the substance works together with the body’s own HA to restore lost volume and stimulate collagen production for naturally fuller lips.

What do lip injections treat?

The Beauty Nurse® team can help you love your lips by making a variety of improvements, including:

  • Boosting volume for fuller and plumper lips
  • Reshaping naturally thin or uneven lips
  • Defining lips that have become flattened and deflated as a result of aging
  • Balancing proportions of the upper and lower lips
  • Enhancing the cupid’s bow
  • Smoothing away vertical lip lines (smoker’s lines) around the lips

What can I expect from treatment? Do lip injections hurt?

At The Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, we make these treatments quick and easy. After thoroughly reviewing your goals and studying your facial anatomy, our expert injector creates a customized treatment plan. Lip injections are performed using a fine needle to inject the dermal filler into specific areas of your lips. The treatment itself lasts only a few minutes, and because our fillers are formulated with lidocaine, there is very little if any discomfort.

How soon will I see results?

The results of your lip injection treatment are instant! Although some temporary bruising, tenderness, and swelling is possible post-treatment, no downtime is required. You’ll leave our office with the beautiful, natural lips you’ve been dreaming of.

Will my lips look fake?

Sometimes, lip injections get overdone. We’ve all seen it, but we’re here to reassure you that when performed by an expert injector, lip injections can—and more importantly should—look natural. (Learn more in this blog post.) Beauty Nurse® Majid has advanced training in injectable treatments and is highly skilled in the art of lip enhancement with dermal fillers. Thanks to his detailed understanding of facial anatomy and proportion, you can rest assured that your results will look and feel natural, while enhancing your beautiful features.

How long do lip injections last?

The results of your lip injection treatment can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years!
