As we age, our lips lose volume and become thinner, which can result in the development of wrinkles around the mouth. This premature aging effect can alter your look significantly. Impressions Face + Body lip enhancement procedure in Chicago effectively revitalizes your lips, restoring their plumpness and youthful look. It can make a significant difference in your overall appearance.

Lip Fillers in Chicago

When you undergo any cosmetic procedure—even one that’s minimally invasive—you’re putting your appearance in the hands of another. At Impressions Face + Body clinic in Chicago, we take that responsibility very seriously. Our team, which is made up of renowned surgeons and expert injectors with decades in the field, strives for nothing but excellence with every single patient who puts their trust in us.

What Are Lip Fillers?

Lip enhancement with lip fillers can instantly add volume to one or both of your lips. Since your lips are a central part of your face, lip augmentation will give you a younger-looking mouth. The outer portion of your lips will be fatter, your Cupid’s bow will be reshaped, and the edges of your lips will be more defined.

Injections are the most popular way of augmenting your lip. This is because the results are immediate, and the treatments are temporary. Over time, your body will absorb the hyaluronic acid-based material used during the injection process. If you like the way that your lips look with augmentation, you simply need to return to Dr. Dayan and his team to have a touch-up injection procedure.

What To Expect From Your Lip Filler Procedure

At Impressions Face + Body, our commitment extends beyond results; it encompasses every step of your transformative experience.

Your Lip Filler Consultation

During your consultation, our specialist will assess your lips, taking into account your preferences regarding shape and volume. This will inform a treatment plan tailored just for you. Given the medical nature of this procedure, we'll also discuss your medical history, potential allergies, and any medications you're on. This session is an ideal time to address any queries about the variety of lip fillers and associated risks.

Preparing for Your Lip Fillers

Our team will guide you through any pre-procedure precautions. You might be advised to abstain from smoking and alcohol for at least 24 hours before the appointment and avoid blood-thinning medications. Staying hydrated in the days prior and eating a nutritious meal before coming in is also recommended.

During Your Lip Filler Procedure

This minimally invasive session usually lasts between 30 to 60 minutes. It starts with the specialist cleaning the lip area. A topical numbing agent might be applied to mitigate any discomfort, followed by the careful injection of the filler. Post-injection, your lips will be massaged to evenly spread the filler. The procedure wraps up with the application of ice to minimize any immediate swelling or bruising.

Lip Filler Aftercare & Recovery

While there's no mandatory downtime and immediate results are evident, optimal results might be fully visible around two weeks post-procedure, as swelling subsides. Temporary side effects like swelling or bruising are possible but generally resolve within days. Although you can return to your routine post-procedure, it's advised to avoid rigorous exercise, direct sun exposure, and any excessive lip contact for at least 24 hours.

Am I a Good Candidate for Lip Fillers?

If you’re looking to enhance the volume and definition of your lips, correct asymmetry, or reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, you may be a good candidate for lip fillers. However, lip fillers are not for everyone. If you have certain medical conditions (such as diabetes or autoimmune diseases), are a smoker, or are pregnant or breastfeeding, you may not be a good candidate for lip fillers.

Lip Filler Benefits

Lip fillers add volume, definition, and symmetry to your lips. A relatively quick and easy procedure (with minimal downtime), lip filler injections can produce natural-looking results that will subtly enhance your appearance. Another benefit—although this only applies to certain lip fillers—is that if you're not happy with the outcome, it's possible to reverse the results.
How much do lip fillers cost in Chicago?
This figure varies depending on the type and amount of filler used, the experience of the injector, and the location of the clinic. Please contact us for more information.
How painful are lip fillers?
The pain experienced with lip filler injections varies from one person to the next. Some people find the injections to be relatively painless while others find them uncomfortable. The level of pain you experience depends on a number of factors, including the type and amount of fillers used, the sensitivity of your lips, and your pain tolerance.
Are there any risks associated with lip fillers?
While severe complications from dermal fillers are uncommon, they’re not completely without risks and potential side-effects. These include asymmetry, bruising, swelling, bleeding, infection at the injection site, allergic reaction, migration of the filler, lumps, damage to the skin, and unsatisfactory results.
How long do lip filler results last?
The longevity of the results of lip filler injections depends on the type and amount of filler used and your metabolism. Collagen fillers typically last for 3–4 months, hyaluronic acid fillers for 6–12 months, and CaHA fillers for up to 18 months.
What procedures pair well with lip fillers?

To enhance the overall results, lip fillers can be paired with:

  • Botox: By relaxing the muscles around the mouth or lifting the corners of the mouth, botox can be used to create a smoother, more youthful appearance.
  • Dermal fillers: As with the lips, dermal fillers can be used to add volume to your cheeks, chin and jawline to create a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance. They can also be used to reduce wrinkles and lines around the mouth.
  • Microneedling: This non-invasive procedure uses small needles to stimulate collagen production, which helps reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and fine lines.
How long do lip fillers take to heal?
Lip filler injections usually take 2–3 days to heal, although swelling can persist for up to 2 weeks. During this time, you should avoid strenuous activity, excessive sun exposure, and touching or rubbing your lips.
How often should I get Lip Fillers?
Because the results of lip filler injections disappear over time, you’ll need to regularly go for lip filler injections if you want to maintain the results. The frequency with which you need to get the injections depends largely on the type of filler used.
What should I avoid after a Lip Filler treatment?
After your lip filler procedure, it’s best to avoid the following activities for at least 24 hours: rubbing your lips, drinking alcohol, eating spicy foods, and drinking hot liquids. Avoid strenuous activity for at least 48 hours, and excessive sun exposure and smoking for at least 2 weeks.
