Lip Injections in Morehead City, NC

Lip injections can restore volume, definition, and fullness to lips that have become lackluster and thin with age, or simply enhance lips that are naturally thin. At New Visage, our skin care specialists are on hand to provide the most advanced formulations in lip injections for our clients in the Morehead City and Jacksonville, North Carolina area.

At New Visage, you may choose from a variety of lip injections formulated to create fuller, more voluptuous lips, improving lip contour and definition and reducing fine vertical lines around the lips and mouth.

WHAT KIND OF IMPROVEMENTS CAN LIP INJECTIONS ACHIEVE?

If you were born with plain, flat or thin lips, or if you’ve reached an age when your lipstick won’t stay inside the lip line, lip injections and/or lip augmentation can give you the added volume and definition to spruce up your lips, and by extension, your entire facial appearance.  Lip injections make your lips look fuller, smoother, and define the natural contour of your lips, diminishing unsightly lines and creases around the lip line. Lip injections may provide long-lasting results with no downtime.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LIP INJECTIONS?

Lip injections may be ideal for most healthy adults with no contraindicated medical conditions affecting the mouth and lips, such as oral herpes. Our specialist can determine whether lip injections may be right for you and recommend the right formulation.

HOW DO LIP INJECTIONS WORK?

Lip injections, such as Restylane Silk® or Juvéderm® Volbella®, are formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA). These gels are injected directly into the lips, increasing hydration in skin cells, making the lips fuller and more defined while also diminishing the appearance of thin, vertical lines around the lip line. These hyaluronic acid (HA) formulas provide continued improvements in lip volume over a period of several weeks.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER LIP INJECTIONS?

There is no downtime after lip injections, and you will be able to resume normal activity right away. You may experience some minor swelling or bruising at the injection sites for a day or two, but you can alleviate this by applying an ice pack for 20 minutes. We recommend you refrain from touching, kissing, or irritating your lips in any way, for the first 24 hours after treatment to assist optimal recovery. While you may notice immediate results right after treatment, you may continue to see additional improvements over several weeks. Results may normally last several months.
