We’ve all done it. We’ve all overlined our lips with lipliner or maybe a little too generously applied lipstick onto the skin around our lips. When you feel like you have no options to make your lips appear fuller, you gotta do what you gotta do right?
But—thanks to the modern world, and you know, the professionals at Blush Aesthetics—you do have other options: lip injections! With all of our Perrysburg and Ottawa Hills injectables, you can get the enhanced, plump lips that no amount of overlining and overapplying can give you. Plus, to be able to roll out of bed with naturally volumized lips? Magical.
We’ve put together everything you need to know about lip injections near you.
Common reasons for lip augmentation
- Gummy smile (your upper lip becoming thin when you smile, showing off your gums)
- Thin lips
- Volume loss
What are lip injections made of?
Whether your lips are asymmetrical or you simply want them to appear fuller, lip augmentation is a fantastic option. Just like most of our dermal fillers, lip injections are made of hyaluronic acid (HA): a gel-like, slippery substance found in our bodies. It’s great for volumizing and maintaining moisture. We carry a variety of brands, including Restylane®, Revanesse® Versa, and Juvedérm® filler.
How do lip injections work?
Your lip injection goals are as unique as your facial anatomy, so we always start with a consultation. We’ll meet in person at either our Perrysburg or Ottawa Hills practice, depending on the location that’s closest near you, and chat with you about what you’re looking for.
We’ll ask you some questions and get to know you just to make sure lip injections in Perrysburg are the right treatment for you. You can ask us any questions too! After nailing down your lip augmentation goals, we’ll schedule your appointment.

The injections appointment
You won’t have to block off too much time; lip injections only take 15 to 20 minutes.
Do lip injections hurt?
When searching “lip injections near me” on Google, you’ll typically see “do lip injections hurt?” listed as a commonly asked question. The answer is: it depends. Everyone has different pain tolerances, but what we’ll say is patients typically report minimal to no discomfort for lip injections.
There is no downtime for lip injections.You may experience minimal bruising or swelling, but that varies by patient and can easily be concealed by makeup if you have plans. The answer you’re looking for is: yes, you’ll be able to return to normal activities immediately (with a few minor exceptions).
The exceptions (aka aftercare instructions)
- Don’t touch or massage the treatment area
- Refrain from exercise or strenuous activity for 12 hours
- Avoid direct sunlight and excessive heat for the rest of the day
- Apply a cool compress for swelling if needed
Everything else is fair game! Although some of our patients choose to return to work or other obligations, we say treat yourself and take the rest of the day off! 💗
Lip injection results are “temporary,” and by temporary, we mean they can last up to 12 months. The faster your metabolism, the shorter term results you have (yep, the only time having a slow metabolism pays off). You can choose to schedule maintenance appointments if you want, or you can go with the flow.
Benefits of getting lip injections
If you feel like you have the full picture of what getting lip injections at Blush Aesthetics is like, then we’re doing our job! But just in case you don’t, we want to drive it home with some of our favorite benefits of lip injections.
Lip injections in Perrysburg are a highly customizable treatment. Whether you want to even out your top and bottom lip or you have a specific lip size and shape in mind, your expert injector can make it happen! Based on your treatment goals, we’ll customize amounts and injection sites.
Unlike lip implants, lip injections are a non-surgical treatment in which you don’t need to take time to recover from. You’ll be in and out in a half hour and back to work that same day if your schedule requires it!
This may not seem like a plus to many, but lip injections are a great way to experiment with enhancing your facial features. Your body will metabolize it eventually, so you won’t be stuck with lip injections forever.
Pairs well with other treatments
Lip injections can pair beautifully with both dermal fillers and Botox® in Perrysburg for an overall rejuvenated, youthful appearance! We call this a liquid facelift. We’ll talk about all your options during your consultation.
