What is LipLase?

LipLase is a modern alternative for patients who are bothered by thin lips but don’t want to have to get injections. The key to the procedure is a special laser that heats the inner layers of the skin. This encourages the production of collagen, thus making the lips look fuller. LipLase typically involves multiple treatment sessions, and in many cases, you’ll see a slight improvement in the appearance of your lips after each one.

Benefits of LipLase

There are no needles involved with the LipLase process since it utilizes a laser instead. The procedure is convenient in that no recovery time is required; you’ll be able to go right back to your normal activities after every appointment. Many patients notice a significant change after just three treatments (with each one taking place about a month after the previous one), so it shouldn’t take too many visits for you to achieve the results you want. That said, the change is quite gradual, so you don’t have to worry about your treatment being too obvious.

How Does LipLase Work?

We’ll only move forward with the LipLase procedure once we’ve addressed any concerns you have and answered all of your questions. We’ll expose the outer and inner parts of your lips to the energy from the laser. A single LipLase session typically lasts around half an hour, if not less.

Once the procedure is complete, you’ll be free to return to your regular schedule. It shouldn’t take too long for the numbness to wear off. While there’s no recovery time needed, it’s usually a good idea to apply lip balm containing vitamin E to your lips after your procedure. Your lips may peel, but this is nothing to be worried about.
