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.

WHAT DOES LIP FILLER DO?

Lip fillers help to define lip border and plump up the lip for a more attractive and full lip appearance.

CAN LIP FILLER BE REMOVED?

Yes, if you are not pleased with results of your HA lip filler, it can be removed with the use of injectable enzyme which will dissolve the filler completely. Also, HA fillers will naturally dissolve over time.

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?

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.

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.

OUR CLIENTS' REVIEWS

I had the best experience at Dr. Bachilo’s office!
Bellaire, TX

I decided to try Coolsculpting for the first time on my chin. I was a bit nervous to have the procedure to get rid of my double chin, but OMG I can already see it working! Dr. Bachilo was awesome! She explained how everything works, what the machine does and the sensation I would experience during and after the treatment. I’ve made my appointment to do Coolsculpting on the belly next.

When it came to my concern of wrinkles and lines she was extremely understanding and actually listened to me. She explained the different fillers and Botox products, which I am so pleased in everything she did to make me look younger!!! I have recommended her to several friends and will continue to do so!! Just go and she how wonderful she is!

Exceeded my expectations
Sugar Land, TX

I believe it is essential to find a professional who is in tune with patients’ needs, responsive, can perform the necessary measures and do what is best for the client without heavily promoting additional services. Dr. Bachilo not only met my meticulous expectations, but also exceeded, so I will be back as needed.

Facial Fillers
Houston, TX

I hated wrinkles on my forehead, and nasal labial folds. I had filler injected around nasal labial folds and around corner of my mouth. Botox injection into my forehead. I couldn't be happier with the results. After many comments about why I look so much younger I will definitely have it done again.
