As we age, lips tend to appear thinner and lose their shape. Luckily, we can help make your lips more luscious and shapely, thanks to innovative lip injections and our talented and experienced Calgary team.
Too often we see women who have received lip injections sporting an overly exaggerated—verging on comedic—pout. Properly performing lip injections with lip fillers is a special talent requiring knowledge, experience and an artist’s eye. At Calgary Age Management Institute, we pride ourselves on ensuring guests emerge with a beautiful, natural look.
What can lip fillers do?
While many people only consider enlarging their lips using lip fillers, we can do more than that. We can also reshape the lip itself by enhancing the cupid’s bow (the lovely curve on the top lip) and redefining the outline of the entire lip, called the vermilion border.
How do lip injections work?
Your new lip look is achieved by injecting Juvéderm™, a hyaluronic acid that binds with water to plump up tissue, into your lips. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body so the risk of an allergic reaction to a lip injection is extremely low.
What should I expect?
After your complimentary consultation to discuss your lip injection wishes and review the symmetry and shape of your lips, we take medical-grade photographs to ensure you can see the results of your lip injections before and after treatment. During a lip injection treatment at Age Management Institute, Dr. Lizette Lourens will impart her experience and expertise to ensure your desired look is achieved. With many years of experience providing lip injections in Calgary, she can ensure your desired look is achieved quickly and as pain free as possible.
To ease any discomfort, a topical anaesthetic or ice may be applied to numb the area before Juvéderm™ is skilfully injected using a tiny syringe. Juvéderm™ also contains lidocaine to further reduce any soreness associated with the treatment both during and after.
You may experience some redness, tenderness or slight swelling after receiving lip injections.
When will I see the results?
A lip injection treatment takes just minutes and the results are usually visible immediately! Results may vary depending upon your individual treatment.
How long do lip fillers last?
We use our lips extensively every day – smiling, talking, eating, even kissing! All of this impacts the longevity of the results, making Juvéderm™ lip injections typically last less time than other areas of the face. Most guests advise results from their lip injections last approximately six months. A touch up procedure a few weeks after your first treatment may help optimize results.
How much do lip injections cost?
Each person is different so their needs will vary. We encourage you to contact us for a free consultation in order to get an accurate estimate for your lip injection costs.
