If you are considering lip augmentation, you have two options — silicone implants or dermal fillers. We invite you to learn more about the advantages of lip injections with dermal fillers. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lars Enevoldsen of Skinfinite Solutions Medical Spa and Laser Center, offers lip injections for men and women in Modesto, Stockton and surrounding areas of California.
What are Lip Injections?
Thanks to the stunning beauty of today’s celebrities and public figures, lip augmentation is quickly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. If you are considering lip augmentation, your plastic surgeon will explain two options — silicone lip implants and dermal fillers. Dermal fillers have several distinct advantages.
- Silicone implants mimic natural tissue, but leave your lips with a slightly harder feel. Dermal fillers leave your lips soft and supple.
- Silicone implants are pre-sized, so they cannot be customized to your natural lip shape or desired size. Dermal fillers are administered via injections, so the amount of product can be placed along the lips with exceptional precision.
- Silicone implants require surgery, and this requires incisions, some scarring and a longer recovery period. You will experience swelling, discomfort and bruising. Dermal fillers are minimally invasive, so there is no aftercare.
Benefits of Lip Injections
You can enhance your lips with dermal fillers in less than one hour. You may have some very minor tenderness and pinpoint bleeding at each injection site. No downtime is required.
How Do Lip Injections Work?
The dermal fillers we use contain hyaluronic acid, which offers the dual benefit of adding volume to the lips and hydrating the skin.
What to Expect from Lip Injections
Our nurse injector explains the procedure, including the sensation of inserting the needle and injecting the dermal filler gel. Several injections will be made into and around the lips.
Depending on the dermal filler that is used for your lip injections, the results may last from several months up to two years.
How Much Do Lip Injections Cost in Modesto, CA?
Lip injections are based on a personal treatment plan that describes the specific dermal fillers, amount of the products and injection sites. This information is determined during your consultation, so we are best able to provide a cost after the appointment. We offer several convenient payment options, including cash, checks and major credit cards. If you need to make monthly payment on your lip injections, you can apply for financing through Med Loan Finance and CareCredit®.
