Luscious and full lips are a boon and not everyone is born with it but almost everyone wants it. Lip injections Toronto are one of the ways of getting such lips. It is a quick and easy way of volumizing the lips temporarily to make them look fuller and plump. These injections mostly consist of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a molecule that is present in abundance in our body. The acid plumps the lips by drawing moisture into its molecule. It is a fairly quick procedure.
What are some of the side effects of the procedure?
Following are some of the side effects that you could face after getting lip injections:
- After undergoing the injections your lips and surrounding areas would be swollen, with the swelling being at its peak for 24 to 48 hours.
- You might experience tenderness on the injection site, which may be too tender to touch. In some cases, movement of the mouth may give rise to a sharp sensation in the injected part of the lip.
- The feeling of a bump inside your lip is quite normal as the lip has been injected with foreign molecules. Hence, it is the body’s natural response to cause the area of injection to swell up and feel harder. The bump should subside within two to three weeks as the body starts to regulate itself around the injected HA molecules.
- Bruising on the injection site is common. Lips are extremely sensitive and hence, are susceptible to bruising. When lip injections take place, bruising occurs. This bruising can be minimized by avoiding the consumption of certain ingredients like green tea, ginger and OTC supplements like Omega 3. Knowing how to reduce the bruising before undergoing the procedure can help you to avoid bruising altogether.
What is it like after the procedure?
As mentioned earlier the discomfort of the bruising and tenderness of the lips lasts for about 24 to 48 hours after the injections. Repeated icing for the first 24 hours can help to relieve the symptoms quicker. On the first night after the procedure, sleeping elevated can also help to reduce the swelling in the face and lips.
When do you see the results?
It takes about 2 weeks for the new product to settle into your lips, hence being patient is essential. You may have to wait about two to three weeks before you can see the final results. In case you have to wait for longer than 3 weeks, then ideally your results would appear to be more realistic in the coming months.

Once you’ve made the decision to get lip injections, the next step is consultation and choosing the surgeon. It is essential that the consultation is with a certified and licensed plastic surgeon who has immense experience in facial injectables.
