lip infusion.

What is a Lip Infusion?

 

A device is used that generates enough air pressure to launch a Hyaluronic acid mixture into the skin creating a plumping effect.

 

Hyaluronic acid is a safe and naturally occurring substance in the human body which is composed of two sugars (glucuronic acid and N-acetylglucosamine).  This substance exists in the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin and its main function is to hold water inside the skin’s tissue, keeping its appearance moist, plump and youthful

 

The mixture used in our lip infusion treatment is cross-linked, which means the substance has an increased stability, thus there is less chance of any damage to the dermis.  

 

Who is a good candidate for the Lip Infusion Procedure?

 

The Lip Infusion procedure is a great option for those who desire fuller, more plump lips without the use of a needle.

*Those who have had previous lip fillers should wait at least 2 months prior to booking.

This treatment is NOT recommended for:

  • Anyone with a lidocaine allergy.

  • Those with an active irritation or viral infection on or surrounding the lips, such as herpes and/or cold sores.

  • Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

  • Those with hypersensitivity.

  • Those who have had any type of reaction to fillers in the past, regardless of placement.

 

How Long Does the Lip Infusion Procedure take?

The Lip Infusion procedure takes an average of 30-45 minutes.

Lip Infusion Aftercare

For the first 24-hours following your Lip Infusion treatment:

  • Do not scratch, rub or use heavy pressure on the area.

  • Try to avoid spicy foods.

  • Be sure when washing to only use water.

Further following your Lip Infusion treatment:

  • Avoid direct sun to the area and/or tanning beds for approximately one week, as it will effect your skin's moisture level having a negative effect on the longevity of your result.

  • Do not take a sauna/hot tub or sweat excessively for 2-3 days following your procedure.

How Long Will my Lip Infusion Last?

Results last an average of 6 months, however the longevity of treatment will depend on age, skin condition and metabolism.
