The Mini Lip Plump® is up to 0.5 cc’s of an injectable dermal filler made from Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. This soft filler can be injected into and lining the lips, and looks and feels soft and natural. We customize all of our Mini Lip Plumps to each person’s needs, but most people do end up using the entire 0.5 cc’s.
The Mini Lip Plump® will naturally be broken down and metabolized by your body, and the length it lasts depends on just how quickly your body metabolizes the product. On average, the Mini Lip Plump® usually lasts 3-4 months. Many of our clients like to plump their lips gradually and subtly, and build on their Mini Lip Plump® every few months!
The Mini Lip Plump® takes about 15 minutes, with about 10 minutes of numbing before you are treated. Your time is precious- we don’t want to waste it!
Worried about pain? We use a prescription-strength numbing cream that we will apply 10-15 minutes before you are injected, which will get you nice and numb before your treatment!
To minimize your chances of bruising, we recommend avoiding ibuprofen and blood-thinning medications for 3 days before your injections. If you are prone to cold sores, you may want to start a course of treatment. Not sure what to do for cold sores? Just give us a call. 801-281-3223.
Everyone is different- we have some BeautyLabbers who walk out of their Lip Plump appointments with ready-to-go-fabulous-lips… and others who tend to bruise and swell. It really depends on your own individual physiology and body chemistry! Most people do swell a bit… generally, the morning after your injections is when you are going to be the most swollen. DON’T PANIC. This is normal and is actually supposed to happen! The HA fillers that we use in your lips are water-loving, which is what makes them so plump and perfect, so it’s totally normal for your lips to be more swollen in the morning (this is actually true with or without a Lip Plump. Look in the mirror tomorrow morning and notice your pout!) Typically, you will be a little swollen for a few days, up to a week after your injections. It will be something that you will notice, but most other people won’t. A week after your injections you will really be able to see what your perfect pout looks like. People who are prone to bruising may notice bruising on or around the lips after injections. Stay hydrated, avoid Ibuprofen before your appointment, and we recommend starting a course of Arnica Montana (a homeopathic remedy for bruising and swelling,) which we sell here for $12.
