Lip InjectionsLas Vegas, NV

Everyone has certain features of their face they wish they could change from facial wrinkles to sagging skin. While wrinkles and sagging skin are a common part of aging, we can help to reduce their appearance and enhance certain features of the face, including the lips. Lip injections can help to reduce the lines that begin to appear around the lips by helping to create a fuller, plumper and more youthful appearance.

Lip injections are offered at Unicorn Medical Weight Loss & Medi Spa in Las Vegas and surrounding areas. The lip injections we offer at our medi spa are part of an array of anti-aging treatment options. With our treatment, we can help patients achieve a more youthful appearance through non-surgical procedures.

What lip injections can do for you

Since aging will alter one’s appearance naturally, people may be unsure of what to do. With so many store-bought products claiming to be effective wrinkle-solutions and anti-aging treatments, people will invest in cheap products that produce varied to minimal results. By seeking our professional treatment, we can help find the effective solution that meets the patient’s individual needs.

Along with lines beginning to form around the lips, people may notice the lips appear thinner over time. With lip injections, we can help to reverse some of this. Most forms of lip injections include hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance in the body. Due to this, fillers with hyaluronic acid are able to be injected into the body with medical professionals. With these injections, we can:

  • Alter the overall volume of the lips
  • Help dissolve bumps created from the movements of the lips
  • Provide patients with a gradual treatment process for desired results
  • Provide treatment with a minimal chance of bruising and allergic reactions
  • Offer a fast and efficient way to enhance the lips
  • Provide guidance and follow-up care if necessary
  • It is important to note that the results are not permanent and can vary per patient. However, lip injections with hyaluronic acid can last longer than other treatment options.

    Preparing for treatment

    The first step is to call us and schedule a consultation. During this consultation, we will review the patient’s medical history, current condition, allergies and any other pertinent information we need to know. By gathering this information, we can determine if this treatment will be safe for the patient and if this is the treatment to meet their needs.

    Since the lip injection appointments are fairly quick themselves, patients will not have to clear out large portions of their schedules. Along with that, there is little to no downtime needed for recovery. Unlike surgical procedures, lip injections are the non-surgical method that will not require weeks of recovery in bed. If the patient selects a fat injection instead of hyaluronic acid, then the procedure will take longer, so most people choose the faster option.

    After ensuring this is the treatment the patient wants, we will then map out a treatment plan.

    The lip injection process

    After the initial consultation and during regular appointments, we will:

  • Numb the lips with a topical or local numbing agent
  • Mark the areas around the lips for injection
  • Inject the dermal filler substance with a very fine needle
  • Review measures with the patient to ease swelling
  • Following treatment, the patient will want to apply an ice pack to their lips, without using too much pressure, to reduce swelling. Patients should also avoid using lipstick, lip gloss or chap stick immediately after the procedure. While there may be some swelling or redness, it will go away in about a few hours after the treatment.

    If the patient notices any symptoms that persist or get worse, they need to call us right away. They may be having a reaction to the injection or another issue that requires medical attention. We will recommend the next effective course of action. If the treatment goes well, the patient will begin to notice results the same day. We will then schedule any follow-up care or the next treatment to help the patient’s lips maintain the new appearance.
