Lip Injections in Phoenix, AZ
Collagen is important for skin volume that gives your face soft, natural contours. As part of the aging process, our bodies produce less collagen, and we lose those contours. If your lips seem thinner than when you were younger, chances are that you have less collagen. Lip injections will restore the fullness of your lips. At Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, our board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh, offers lip injections for adults who live in and around Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and the surrounding communities of Arizona.
What are Lip Injections?
In the past, silicone implants were the only option for men and women who wanted to change the size and shape of their lips. Silicone implants have many drawbacks, though, and these drawbacks were enough to keep many men and women from having their desired lip shape and size. The advancements with dermal fillers bring new options to adults who want fuller lips without surgery or implants.
Benefits of Lip Injections
Dr. Taghizadeh recommends lip injections to men and women who want:
- To enhance lip shape and size without surgery, incisions and downtime
- A temporary method for changing lip shape and size before committing to implants
- A combination treatment for lip enhancement and softening lines and wrinkles around the mouth

How Much Difference Will I See with Lip Injections?
One of the greatest benefits of lip injections, when compared to lip implants, is that Dr. Taghizadeh has precise control over how much dermal filler product is use. He can carefully and meticulously sculpt your lips to add fullness, correct any asymmetry and soften lines and wrinkles. With this technique, he can even provide treatments over a period of time to allow you to feel comfortable at one level of enhancement before adding more dermal filler.
Recovery from Lip Injections
Your lips will feel tender and be slightly swollen. You should wait for 24 to 48 hours before evaluating the results of your lip injections because the size will be exaggerated by the swelling. Dr. Taghizadeh may recommend gently applying ice packs and over non-prescription pain medication to help with any discomfort.
What Will Lip Injections Do for My Lips?
Approximately three days after your lip injections, you will see the full results of the procedure. Your lips will look fuller, and the skin on and around your lips will look younger and softer.
Will Everyone Benefit from Lip Injections?
The dermal fillers that are used for lip injections are approved by the FDA and considered safe for most adults. If you are not a good candidate for lip injections, Dr. Taghizadeh will recommend other options during your consultation.
