If you are searching for a way to add youthful volume to your lips, lip injections may be your answer. Our patients from Calgary, Airdrie, Seton, and beyond use lip augmentation to give their lips a flattering, natural-looking boost. Dermal fillers provide an easy, nonsurgical way to enhance and contour the face. Lip injections are among the most popular filler options and are enjoyed by women of all ages and lifestyles.

How does lip augmentation work?

Lip augmentation involves the injection of dermal filler into or around the lips. The active ingredient in these fillers, hyaluronic acid, is a naturally occurring substance in the body. This product hydrates and adds volume underneath the skin to give lips a fuller, plumper appearance.

Different types of fillers can be used for lip augmentation. Your provider will guide you toward the brand that is best formulated to your specific needs.

What can I expect from a lip augmentation treatment session?

A lip injection treatment is a quick and comfortable procedure. Your provider will deliver a series of carefully placed injections with an extremely fine needle. Any discomfort is usually managed with topical lidocaine and an anesthetic is incorporated into all our fillers. You will be able to see a change in your lips immediately after treatment. While they may have an "overfull" appearance at first, this will subside after a few days.

Most lip augmentation treatment sessions are 30 minutes or less. They are simple nonsurgical treatments that can fit into even the busiest of schedules.

How much do lip injections cost?

The price of lip injections depends on the patient's particular needs. Some may want more or less product in order to create a customized result. Your provider will give you a personalized quote during your private 1-on-1 consultation.

How long is lip augmentation recovery?

As a nonsurgical procedure, lip augmentation requires no extended downtime. Patients can return to work or home immediately after treatment. Potential treatment side effects may include slight redness, tenderness, or swelling. These side effects are temporary and can be treated easily with over-the-counter pain medication.

How long do lip augmentation results last?

Lip injection results typically last around 6 months to 1 year. However, the longevity of your results depends on the amount of product used and your body’s natural structure. Some patients metabolize dermal fillers at a slightly slower rate. If you ever want additional volume, you can schedule a touch-up treatment with our practice.
