At Imagen – Omaha Cosmetic Center, we offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections as an effective and safe treatment to reduce wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth area. PRP is a natural procedure that involves sourcing healing growth factors from your own blood and injecting them under the skin, which stimulates skin repair and boosts collagen and elastin production. It can also improve skin texture, reduce lipstick lines and smokers lines, as well as create subtle fullness in the lips.
Overview of PRP for Lips
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentrated solution of platelets derived from your own blood. Platelets are responsible for healing wounds by releasing growth factors that stimulate cell regeneration and tissue repair. By injecting these healing growth factors into the targeted area, it can help to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, improve skin texture, restore volume loss due to aging, and create subtle fullness in the lips.
Is PRP a Lip Filler?
No, PRP is not a lip filler but instead works to stimulate collagen production from within your body to give you more youthful looking lips with natural-looking results over time.
What Does PRP Do for Lips?
PRP can be used to treat wrinkles around the mouth area such as smokers lines or lipstick lines as well as naturally enhance lip volume without the use of dermal fillers or other injectables. It can also help improve overall lip texture and hydration while boosting collagen production for more youthful looking lips over time.
What Results Can I Expect?
The results of PRP injections vary depending on each patient’s individual needs but most patients notice an improvement in their lip texture, reduced wrinkles/fine lines around the mouth area, improved hydration levels, and subtle plumping of their lips after just one treatment session with further improvements seen over time with additional treatments as needed.

PRP Work to Reduce Wrinkles on the Lips
How is the Treatment Performed?
The treatment begins with a small amount of blood being taken from your arm or hand, which is then placed into a centrifuge machine that separates out the platelets from other components of your blood such as red and white cells. This creates a concentrated solution of platelets which contains healing growth factors that will be used in your prp injection treatment.
Once this process is complete, your doctor will inject the PRP solution into the areas around your mouth where wrinkles and fine lines have formed using a very thin needle. The injections are usually done in multiple sessions, depending on how many areas need to be treated, and each session takes about 30 minutes to complete. Afterward, you may experience some mild swelling or bruising at the injection sites but this should go away within a few days after treatment.
What are the Benefits?
One of the main benefits of using PRP injections for reducing wrinkles around the lips is that it’s an all-natural treatment that uses your own body’s healing power to stimulate skin repair and boost collagen production in order to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Additionally, since it’s an outpatient procedure there’s no need for any downtime afterwards so you can return to work or other activities immediately after treatment if desired.
Another benefit of getting PRP injections for lip wrinkles is that they provide more long-lasting results than other treatments such as dermal fillers or laser resurfacing treatments because they stimulate natural skin repair processes rather than just temporarily filling in wrinkles or using heat energy to reduce them like other treatments do.
Is it Safe?
PRP injections are generally considered safe because they use your own blood so there’s no risk of allergic reactions or adverse side effects like there can be with other treatments such as dermal fillers or laser resurfacing treatments. Additionally, since it’s an outpatient procedure performed by trained professionals there’s no risk of infection either since sterile techniques are used throughout the process.
Patient Post Care: Is There Any Downtime?
After getting PRP injections for lip wrinkles there may be some mild swelling or bruising at the injection sites but this should go away within a few days after treatment so there’s no need for any downtime afterwards unless you experience any severe side effects such as excessive bleeding or pain at the injection sites in which case you should contact your doctor right away for further instructions on how to proceed with post care treatment..
PRP injections are safe with minimal side effects and no downtime.
PRP for Lip Augmentation
What is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that is used to enhance the lips by adding volume or definition. This can be achieved through the use of dermal fillers, fat transfer, or PRP injections. Dermal fillers are synthetic materials such as hyaluronic acid that are injected into the lips to add volume and shape. Fat transfer involves taking fat from another area of the body and transferring it to the lips. It is a more permanent solution than dermal fillers but requires multiple treatments for optimal results.
Can PRP be Used for Lip Augmentation?
Yes, PRP injections can be used for lip augmentation. The procedure involves sourcing healing growth factors from your own blood and injecting them under the skin, which stimulates skin repair and boosts collagen and elastin production. This helps to create subtle fullness in the lips without looking overdone or unnatural like some other lip augmentation procedures may do. Additionally, PRP injections can help reduce wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth area while improving overall skin texture and tone in this area as well.
Are there any Risks Involved with Lip Augmentation?
As with any medical procedure there are risks involved with lip augmentation using PRP injections including bruising, swelling, pain at injection sites, infection, discoloration of surrounding tissue or scarring at injection sites. It is important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider before undergoing any type of cosmetic procedure to ensure you understand all of the potential risks associated with it.
What Results Can I Expect from a Lip Augmentation Procedure using PRP?
The results you should expect from a lip augmentation procedure using PRP will depend on several factors including how much volume you desire, how many treatments you have had done previously, and how well you follow post-care instructions given by your healthcare provider after each treatment session. Generally speaking however, most patients experience an increase in lip volume as well as improved skin texture and tone in this area after having one or two treatments done with PRP injections for lip augmentation purposes.

PRP Injections vs. Dermal Fillers
The goal of both dermal fillers and PRP injections is to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth area, as well as add subtle fullness to the lips. However, there are some differences between the two treatments that should be considered when making a decision on which one is best for you.
Treating Upper Lip Lines with Dermal Fillers vs. Microneedling with PRP
Dermal fillers are injectable products used to smooth wrinkles and fine lines, as well as add volume to areas of the face such as the cheeks, chin, and lips. They are made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in our skin that helps maintain moisture and elasticity. HA-based fillers can be injected into areas of the upper lip to reduce wrinkles and create subtle fullness in the lips.
On the other hand, microneedling with PRP involves using tiny needles to create microscopic channels in your skin that allow your body’s own healing growth factors to enter into deeper layers of skin where they can stimulate collagen production and repair damaged skin cells. This procedure can also help reduce wrinkles around the mouth area, including lipstick lines and smokers lines, while also improving overall skin texture and adding subtle fullness to your lips without making them look overfilled or unnatural.
Injecting Dermal Fillers For Lip Enhancement
Injecting dermal fillers for lip enhancement involves injecting small amounts of HA-based filler into specific areas of your lips to create subtle fullness or plump up thin lips. The results are immediate but usually last about 6 months before needing touch ups or more filler injections for maintenance purposes. However, this method may not be ideal for those looking for a more natural look since it can make your lips appear overfilled or unnatural if not done correctly by an experienced practitioner. Additionally, there is a risk of infection or allergic reaction associated with any kind of injection procedure; therefore it is important to find an experienced practitioner who follows safety protocols when performing these procedures.
Comparing The Pros And Cons Of Lip Fillers And Microneedling With PRP
Both lip fillers and microneedling with PRP have their own unique benefits and drawbacks that should be taken into consideration when deciding which treatment is best for you:
Pros: Lip fillers provide immediate results while microneedling with PRP requires several treatments before seeing results; however, microneedling with PRP has been shown to produce longer lasting results compared to lip fillers due to its ability to stimulate collagen production in deeper layers of skin which helps keep skin looking younger longer.
Cons: Lip fillers require regular maintenance injections every 6 months while microneedling with PRP only requires occasional touch ups; additionally, lip fillers may result in an unnatural look if not done correctly by an experienced practitioner whereas microneedling with PRP produces more natural looking results.
Can You Combine Lip Fillers And Microneedling With PRP?
Yes, you can combine lip fillers and microneedling with PRP if you want both immediate results from lip filler injections as well as long-lasting results from stimulating collagen production through microneedling with prp treatments. It is important to note that combining these two treatments may increase the risk of infection or allergic reaction due to multiple needle insertions; therefore it is important to find an experienced practitioner who follows safety protocols when performing these procedures
|Dermal Fillers||Immediate Result|

|Risk of Infection|
|prp injections||Longer Lasting Results|
|May Take Several Weeks or Months Before Seeing Visible Improvements|
