The concept of beauty is a highly personal topic, and for some, it comes down to having a fuller set of lips as the key to helping them feel confident and comfortable in their own skin. Lip enhancement has long been the preferred procedure for those who feel their lips don’t quite match up to their ideal vision of a pout that pleases. Many who look towards lip enhancement feel their lips are simply too thin and aren’t noticeable enough with the scheme of the rest of their facial features. Others turn to lip enhancements as they age and fine lines and wrinkles diminish the definition of pretty lips they’ve always loved. Other patients turn towards enhancement for achieving pretty lips when they’re looking to balance their facial aesthetic or find that fuller lips give them a more youthful appearance.

Whatever the reasons may be, the process of lip enhancement today is straightforward, convenient, and easily customized to fit patient standards. No matter what look you’re going for, you’ll find a lip enhancement option to give you the pretty lips of your dreams.

FDA-Approved Lip Fillers That Provide Successful Results

Patients who come to The Skin & Vein Center for Pretty Lips enhancement services are often pleased to learn that our clinic exclusively provides FDA-approved filler options. Both Juvederm and Revanesse Versa + top the list of most popular, safe, and effective brands we regularly provide to our patients. As a premier provider of lip augmentation services in Michigan, we’ve been helping patients achieve the pretty lips look they love using fillers since 1990.

Preparing for Lip Injections

No matter if you’re looking for a quick plump or aiming for a full pout, preparing for lip injections begins with stopping any anti-inflammatory medications you may be using at least 24 to 48 hours prior to your appointment. Eliminating these medications from your system within this timeframe will aid in the reduction of post-treatment bleeding or bruising. In the event that you’re an individual prone to cold sores, it’s important to stick with a medicated treatment plan as lip injections have been known to cause flare-ups. Beyond this, there’s very little that needs to be done in preparation for your incredible new look!

The Pretty Lips Injection Process

Many first-time lip augmentation patients worry that lip injections will be painful. Fortunately, this just isn’t the case! The Pretty Lips lip filler process is streamlined and virtually pain-free thanks to a strong topical anesthetic cream that’s used on the lips before injections are ever placed. The benefit of this approach is that your lips will continue to move naturally while the numbing effect takes care of any pain points during the process.

What to Expect After Pretty Lips Fillers

Any bruising or swelling that occurs after a Pretty Lips filler procedure will generally disappear within a day or two after treatment. Associated redness or tenderness at the site of the injection will likely disappear within the same timeframe. Many patients are able to return to their normal, daily activities despite these minimal side effects.

A Customized Approach to Lip Augmentation

A Pretty Lips procedure is not a one size fits all approach to lip augmentation. Within the process, patients have a lot of room for flexibility and choice that provides a route to achieving a final look they truly love! Sometimes, patients don’t need fillers in both lips to earn an amazing pout. When this is the case, we’re happy to place injections in just one lip. The final size of your lips is ultimately up to you. Our specialized approach to placing fillers allows us to augment lips to provide for natural-looking results as well as those that go a bit beyond!

Making Sure You’re Satisfied with the Results

We work closely with patients to help them decide exactly what look they’re hoping to achieve in conversations held during initial consultations. This is a great time to honestly assess what it is a patient loves about their appearance and how much they’re looking to change to make improvements. This conversation is vital in setting the standard of customization for a Pretty Lips appointment.

A Long-Lasting Solutions with Pretty Lips

Individuals who utilize Pretty Lips and enhance their look with fillers will see immediate results and find satisfactory results lasting anywhere from 6 months up to a year. The filler that’s injected is ultimately absorbed by the body. This is a process where the rate of absorption can vary drastically depending on the individual. Patients can return at any point for additional injections. In the event an individual wants fillers removed more quickly than they’re naturally absorbed by the body, a natural enzyme injection can be placed at our clinic which will dissolve fillers within approximately 24 hours.
