In the world of aesthetics, lip injection is a procedure that has gained in popularity due to its ability to improve facial harmony, while preserving a natural appearance. At Claris Clinic, we are experts in this field and can help you reveal your natural beauty.

The lip injection process

Lip injections, a common procedure in aesthetic medicine, can improve not only the volume of your lips, making them fuller and plumper, but also their shape. In particular, it can accentuate the lip contour and the Cupid’s bow, that little V-shaped curve in the center of the upper lip. This aesthetic medicine technique is becoming increasingly popular for those seeking to improve their smile in a natural way. The most commonly useddermal filler ishyaluronic acid, a substance naturally present in the body. Known for its ability to retain water, hyaluronic acid gives lips a fuller, more hydrated and more natural look. Lip injections can help fill in wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth (the famous “barcode” effect), improve facial harmony and boost self-confidence.

What happens during a lip injection session?

The session begins with an in-depth consultation to discuss your expectations and goals. The specialist takes the time to understand exactly what you’re looking for and to answer all your questions. Then he or she draws up a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs.

The procedure itself is generally rapid, often completed in less than half an hour, and requires no local anesthetic. To ensure your comfort, however, an anaesthetic cream can be applied to your lips before starting. The filler is then injected with precision, using very fine needles to precisely control volume and shape.

Benefits and results of lip injection

Hyaluronic acidImproved facial harmony

One of the main advantages of lip injections is their ability to improve facial harmony and balance. Well-proportioned lips can accentuate the symmetry of the face, which is often associated with beauty and attractiveness. Lip injections can help correct the disproportion between the upper and lower lips, better define the lip line and add volume to thin lips.

At Claris Clinic, we always strive to achieve a natural result. We look at your face as a whole and make sure that the enhanced lips blend in perfectly with your other features.

Increased self-confidence

In addition to improving physical appearance, lip injections can also help boost self-confidence. Feeling good about yourself and rediscovering the pleasure of using lipstick can have a positive impact on self-confidence and self-esteem.

Safety and duration of lip injection

Process safety

Lip injection (sometimes also referred to as “Russian lips”) is considered a safe procedure, especially when performed by qualified professionals (aesthetic physicians, plastic surgeons or dermatologists). However, as with any medical procedure, it’s important to be aware of possible side effects and complications, although these are generally rare. Common side effects, usually temporary, may include:

  • redness
  • swelling
  • bruising at the injection site

In the event of an allergic reaction, more serious symptoms may occur, but these are very rare, especially with the use of fillers based on hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally present in the body.

Of course, we take every precaution to minimize these risks, including using the highest-quality, recognized filling products, adhering to the strictest hygiene protocols, and listening carefully to your medical history and concerns.

Duration and maintenance

The duration of lip injection results can vary depending on several factors, including the filler used, your metabolism and your lifestyle habits. In general, results can last from six months to a year. For some patients, results can last even longer.
