The lips are a central part of the lower face that add balance to the other features. Thick, luscious lips are often seen as a sign of youth and fullness. Whether it’s the aging process or genetics, thin lips can make it difficult to feel confident showing off your favorite lip colors or enjoying a balanced profile. Lip injectables are one excellent way to achieve great results without the downtime or permanency of a lip lift procedure. With the popularity of lip injection treatments among celebrities and influencers, Prysi Cosmetic Surgery offers the best in injectable options with the Juvéderm® family of fillers.

Juvéderm® Ultra XC is an injectable treatment designed to use for lips to smooth and volumize. This Juvéderm® injectable and others are made with synthetic, cross-linked hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the skin that is responsible for retaining moisture and suppleness. When injected under the surface of the skin, it replaces volume lost by decreased collagen production over time.
Patients who are looking to smooth out their lips are perfect candidates for Juvéderm® Ultra XC. Injectable treatments can also be a great way to explore your cosmetic goals before considering a surgical procedure, like SurgiSil. It’s important to discuss any allergies (including lidocaine) or history of reactions during your consultation so our expert injectors can determine whether this injectable is the best option for you. You should always receive injectable treatments from an experienced and trained injector under the supervision of a board-certified plastic surgeon. This ensures you get your desired results while staying safe and risk averse. During a consultation, our specialists can also discuss your options for surgical lip enhancement.
Injectable treatments can be performed right in our Naples office during a quick and easy session. Juvéderm® Ultra XC contains lidocaine for additional comfort during injection, which is a common topical anesthetic used by dentists and ophthalmologists. Once you’re comfortable and relaxed, a very fine needle is used to place the product under the dermis using several specific injections so that your results are artfully and naturally crafted by our expert injectors. After your injections are completed, you’ll be given a small list of aftercare instructions and you can return home. Overall, this process can take as little as 30 minutes.
After treatment with injections, most patients experience some minor swelling and discomfort. We generally recommend you alleviate this with an ice pack as needed — you can generally expect any side-effects to fade within a day or so. You can also return to your regular activities the next day. Although it’s different for each patient, you can expect your Juvéderm® Ultra XC results to last for up to one year, after which you can opt for retreatment or touch-up. During a consultation, our expert injectors can recommend your best options to boost your results and confidence with other injectable options or skincare treatments.
Injectable treatments are one great way to enhance your look without downtime or incisions. To begin discussing your options with Juvéderm® Ultra XC, contact our Naples office to schedule a consultation with our expert injectors.
