Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation With Dermal Fillers

The lips are often among the first areas in the face to exhibit early evidence of aging and sun damage. Thin, flat lips marked by vertical lines, commonly called “smoker’s lines,” give you a prematurely aged appearance even when the rest of your face still looks young. Lip injections replenish fullness and volume, restore symmetry, and add definition to the lips, while reducing the appearance of those pesky vertical creases around the edges of the lips. A lip enhancement treatment can quickly revitalize your entire facial appearance without much expense or fuss.

The most suitable filler injections will be used to create added plumpness and definition in the lips. You may choose from an array of dermal filler options and Dr. Bachilo will recommend the filler most suitable to your specific aesthetic needs. Options may include Juvederm XC or Juvederm Volbella, one of the newest fillers specifically indicated for lip and perioral area injections.

CAN LIP FILLER BE REMOVED?

HOW MUCH DO LIP INJECTIONS COST IN HOUSTON?

Lip injections prices in Houston may vary from $450 to $800 per syringe. The cost of lip fillers depends on the product used and provider delivering lip injection.

WILL I FEEL LIP FILLER IN MY LIPS?

When lip injection is done appropriately, you should have natural soft feel to your lips. You may experience temporary sensation changes in your lips due to lidocaine (a numbing medicine) present in most fillers.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF LIP INJECTIONS?

As with any injections there is a risk of bruising and infection, which are minimal. There is also risk of asymmetry and need for additional injections. Your provider will discuss all risks and alternatives in details with you during your consultation.

DO LIP INJECTIONS HURT?

There is some discomfort associated with injectable treatments, but it is minimized with the use of topical anesthetic, ice and vibration distraction devices.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS AFTER LIP INJECTION?

You will see results immediately after your lip injection. There may be some swelling and bruising for a few days following treatment.

WHEN CAN I RETURN TO WORK AFTER LIP INJECTION?

You may return to work immediately after lip filler treatment with expectation of some swelling and bruising. Bruising usually can be covered by makeup.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE LIP INJECTION?

It is recommended that you do not take any medications that can increase potential for bruising for one week prior to your injectable treatment. This includes avoiding any aspirin and ibuprofen containing products as well as supplements such as fish oil and high doses of vitamin E. Tylenol is safe to take prior to injections.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER LIP INJECTION?

It is expected to experience some swelling and mild bruising after injectable filler treatment. These usually subside in few days to a week.

HOW CAN I MINIMIZE BRUISING WITH LIP FILLER INJECTION?

ARE THERE ANY ALTERNATIVES TO LIP FILLERS?

Threads can be used in the lips to produce subtle augmentation to lip and lip border. Fat injections, utilizing your own fat, can be done instead of use of HA fillers. Silicone lip implants may be used for a more dramatic augmentation.
