The entire Lip Filler session typically lasts between 30 minutes to an hour.

Techniques for Lip Fillers

Lip Fillers are typically administered through injection techniques using fine needles or cannulas for precise placement and desired results. Some techniques may include:

Needle Injection

This is the most common technique where the filler is injected directly into the lips using a fine needle.

Cannula Injection

A cannula, a thin, flexible tube, is used to inject the filler into the lips. This technique is preferred by some practitioners as it may reduce the risk of bruising and provide more even results.

Microdroplet Technique

Small amounts of filler are injected at multiple points across the lips to achieve a natural-looking enhancement

Layering Technique

The filler is injected in multiple layers to create volume and shape gradually, allowing for precise control over the final result.

Vermilion Border Technique

Filler is strategically injected along the border of the lips to enhance definition and create a more defined lip shape.

Cross-Hatching Technique

The filler is injected in a crisscross pattern, creating a mesh-like structure that supports and lifts the lips.

Combination Technique

Different techniques may be combined to address specific concerns, such as adding volume to the body of the lips while also defining the border.

Where are the Injections for Lip Fillers?

Lip Fillers at Landford Plastic Surgery are typically administered through injections and therefore do not involve incisions or scarring. The injections are strategically placed in the desired areas of the lips, and the tiny needle punctures usually heal without leaving visible scars.


Lip Fillers Recovery

After receiving Lip Fillers, it is common to experience some mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness in the treated area. These effects are usually temporary and will subside within a few days to a week. It is recommended to avoid excessive touching or pressure on the lips, follow post-treatment instructions provided by Dr. Landford, and allow your body time to heal for optimal results.
