LIP FILLER SPECIALIST | LIP INJECTIONS AUSTIN
Full and vivacious lips have always been recognized as aesthetically important features.
This could easily be a story about how lip fillers changed my life, but I’m pretty sure that wouldn’t be very exciting for people to read… We aren’t talking about BIG lips either, I’m talking just a teensy bit for some added Mojo and swagger.
Lip Injections Austin: They are a central part of the face that everyone recognizes in daily social interactions. Some of us, however, are born with thin lips, or our lips lose their fullness with age. Around 40, that top lip starts to disappear.
LIP FILLER MAKES YOU LOOK YOUNGER
Full Lips are the sign of youth and considered a sexy feature for both men and women. As we age the upper lip becomes longer and thinner and often covers all visibility of the upper teeth and this creates an aged look. Does your upper lip disappear when you smile? This will help!

Lip augmentation | Lip injections can be done through fat transfer or with hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers such as Restylane, Vollure or Juvederm. Since these materials are gradually absorbed by the body, you will need to come back for touch-up treatments to maintain that full-lipped look. We can work on building the volume up over time, so no one will notice, but your lips will be gradually more full.
NATURAL FULLER LIPS | LIP INJECTIONS CAN BE SUBTLE
So many of my clients are worried about botched lip fillers, usually from a lip augmentation they got on sale or a Groupon. Just don’t do it! You get what you pay for, and I cannot tell you how many people come in and need me to fix their crazy, lumpy, uneven lip fillers.
WILL LIP FILLER GIVE ME DUCK LIPS?
I always remind people that we NOTICE the really bad, botched lip jobs on TV and around the water cooler. There are millions of people who have beautiful lips (and Botox) around you that you simply have no idea they’ve done, because it has been done CORRECTLY and naturally. Thats our goal here.
Lip augmentation or Lip enhancement “plumps up” the lips and smooths out fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. This means smokers lines and lipstick lines can fade, or even disappear.
WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE MY LIP FILLERS | LIP INJECTIONS
You’re in luck. All of the hyaluronic acid based cosmetic fillers can be easily dissolved with an enzyme called hyalurondaise. This is an expensive enzyme, and for that reason we typically will not dissolve other people’s work.
WILL YOU FIX MY BOTCHED LIP INJECTIONS | LIP FILLER?
I can usually fix lips that have been botched. First I will ask that you return to your provider and ask them to dissolve the filler, (which if the lips are really botched, should be free). The enzyme at our office is $250, so it makes sense to go the free route.
DO I HAVE TO USE A WHOLE SYRINGE OF LIP FILLER?
You can try out some lip filler with just half a syringe to see if you like it. It’s very subtle, and you can always add more later. Almost everyone comes back for more!
A considerable amount of women (and men) often feel self-conscious about having thin lips. Full lips have become very popular, largely in part to celebrities like Kylie, but also because they just look youthful and pretty. As a result, more and more people are choosing to get lip injections to reach their lip goals.
HOW LONG DOES LIP FILLER LAST
This is a complicated question. Depending on the area treated, your skin, and the injection technique, Restylane and Juvederm will last 4 to 6 months. In some cases duration of the effects can be a bit shorter or longer. Juvederm Vollure has special cross-linking and can last up to a year. However, everyone is different, and there are some rare folks who get a year to 18 months.
HOW LONG BEFORE AN EVENT SHOULD I ALLOW FOR LIP FILLER?
I tell all of my clients… Do NOT do lip fillers if you have something important to do that night or the next day.
You just never know if you will swell, bruise etc. Come in a week or so before the event, and we will get you lips red carpet ready.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE FOR LIP FILLERS | LIP INJECTIONS
Topical numbing cream is applied before lip injections, so the procedure is itself is more comfortable. There may be some soreness afterward. There will likely be swelling the the night of, with the next day being the most Lucious!
IS THERE A LOT OF BRUISING WITH LIP FILLER | LIP INJECTIONS?
While I cannot say for sure (nor can anyone else) that you will or won’t bruise, most of my clients do not. I use a specialized technique that lends itself to a comfortable experience. This advanced lip augmentation technique was picked up in Europe, and is not typically used in Austin. It makes for a much more comfortable, easier recovery.
DO YOU USE A CANNULA FOR LIP INJECTIONS AUSTIN?
I do not use a cannula for any of my fillers. This is a personal choice, as I feel I have more control without it. I have not had any issues doing it may way for many years, and thousands of happy patients. I have seen strange tunneling post cannula under the skin, which is why I have chosen to stick with the tried and true.
CAN YOU DO A DENTAL BLOCK FOR LIP INJECTIONS?
Well, you can. But I don’t. Its a little bit of overkill in my opinion. I have had no issues with a topical numbing cream and some advanced skill.
