Lip Enhancement Treatment Instructions

What to Expect

We suggest any getting any filler at least two weeks before any events to allow for healing time. 

During your appointment you will have a chance to ask questions and discuss your treatment plan with our provider. Once you feel ready to proceed with treatment numbing cream will be applied and will sit for 25-30 minutes. When you are numb the injector will cleanse your lips and begin treatment. 

The injections take roughly 20 minutes to complete. The first few pokes will hurt slightly more than the rest as there is numbing medication in the lip filler. You will get more numb as we inject more filler. We do offer nerve blocks for lip injections for an additional fee. Keep in mind that numbing your lip to that extent may increase your risk of biting your lip afterward. This can also interfere with your smile until numbing has worn off (roughly 2 hours post treatment). 

After injections have been completed your injector may massage your lips or apply antibiotic ointment. An ice pack may be provided to you. If you choose to ice please pat the ice pack rather than leaving it on one spot too long- remember you will be numb. You'll then be cleaned up and have another opportunity to ask questions. 

It is important to remember that everyone swells different amounts. If at any point you suspect you are swelling more than normal we have an after hours provider who is happy to answer your questions. We require 14 days between the original appointment date and follow ups for additional filler or touch ups. 


Appointment time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Patient Experience:

I decided to get my lips enhanced with Versa+ by Injector Madi, and I'm really happy with how it turned out! The suite had a welcoming atmosphere, and Madi made me feel comfortable right away. She took the time to understand what I wanted and explained the Versa+ product and procedure clearly. When it came to the injections, I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't very painful. They applied prescription numbing cream before, which helped a lot. I honestly drooled a little.


After the treatment, my lips looked just as I had hoped, they had a natural plumpness that I really love. I didn't have to take any time off from my daily routine, which was a relief. I didn't have an issue with swelling but I added the inhance injection serum to my treatment, it helps with healing. Over the next few days, I noticed my lips looking better and better. Madi's expertise really showed, and she seems to know all the current and best products. If you're considering lip injections, I definitely recommend seeing Madi at Ilios.
