How long will the procedure take, and what's the downtime?
Lip Filler appointments take approximately 45 minutes.
Expect some swelling, bruising, and tenderness in the area post-treatment. Swelling is often very noticeable on the first and second day post-treatment. Bruising can last up to 2 weeks.
It's not uncommon for patients to fall in love with the swelling during the recovery period and want to add more filler, which we can do 1 month post-initial treatment.
The fillers we use in the lips are FDA approved to last 8-15 months in the lips, but often we see longer results.
We recommend patients schedule an annual filler evaluation and injection session to maintain optimal results.
