Lip fillers contain either hyaluronic acid (HA) - which is a naturally-occurring substance within your body, or use injectable fat (Lipoinjection). The fat is taken from another area of your body and processed to use an injectable lip filler. Both substances are long-lasting and increase volume offering fuller, and more youthful-looking lips.
Lip fillers are an excellent way to enhance the look of your lips with minimal downtime or risks. The Clinic for Plastic Surgery has been helping patients achieve their goal of fuller, more beautiful lips for years. Meeting with one of our medical experts will enable you to discover your lip augmentation options and discuss any concerns with the doctor.
At The Clinic for Plastic Surgery Med Spa, you have treatment options. During your consultation for lip fillers Houston medical specialists will tailor a precise injectable treatment to yield natural-looking results and reach your aesthetic goal. Injectable treatments for lip augmentation have a variety of different functions; here is an overview of the Juvéderm family of fillers:
Creates fuller lips and lasts up to 12 months. Experts say Juvéderm Ultra plumps and expands your lip tissues for optimal results.
Is an ideal entry-level product for patients who are new to injectables. It lasts from nine months to one year, and experts say you will see good results with increased volume.
Is ideal for smoothing and softening your lip lines. It lasts up to one year, and experts say that Volbella contains less hyaluronic acid and offers structure and definition with a more subtle look.
Creates soft vermillion edges with no swelling and lasts up to 18 months. According to experts, Vollure smooths out lines for soft edges with natural-looking fullness.
Offers long-lasting volume and is designed to add lift and volume. Voluma lasts for up to two years, and experts say it is FDA-approved to treat age-related volume loss.
Lidocaine or numbing creams are available to ease any discomfort.
You are given specific pre and post-treatment instructions to follow for your lip filler treatment in Houston. One week before your procedure, you will need to refrain from taking medications or supplements that act as blood thinners, such as Aspirin, Motrin, Aleve, Multivitamins, Vitamin E, and Fish Oil. Once your face is cleaned, your injection expert will deliver the lip filler into your lip, where it is massaged and moved around for even distribution. The volume of lip filler units needed is determined during your consultation and based on your treatment plan.
Minimal downtime so you can keep on schedule. Most patients find that their only downtime is waiting for the numbness to wear off, which does not take long. You will need to refrain from using a straw or sipping a hot beverage after your treatment, and you will want to avoid sleeping on your face for the first 24 hours.
Your results will last four months to two years, depending on the type of filler received.
For the first couple of days, there is swelling. Once the swelling subsides, usually in about three to four days after your treatment, you should be able to see your final results. Your results are not permanent and depend on how fast your body absorbs the filler. It is recommended to schedule maintenance appointments every six months to adhere to a consistent look and fullness in your lips.
