With the use of dermal fillers for lip injections, patients can achieve stunningly natural results that are both beautiful and long-lasting. Patients in Mission, Tx, McAllen, Edinburg, Pharr, Harlingen, Brownsville, the Rio Grande Valley, or anywhere else in South Texas can trust RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center for their lip injections and other cosmetic treatments.
What Are Lip Injections?
Lip injections are also referred to as lip augmentations, or non-surgical lip augmentations, and use dermal fillers to increase volume in the lips. This treatment can make your lips more plump and voluptuous, and still boasts all the benefits that dermal fillers offer over other methods of treatment. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we use the Juvéderm® family of products for lip augmentation. These products are clinically proven to be safe and effective while providing some of the longest lasting results of any dermal filler.
Juvéderm® Ultra XC And Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC
For a more dramatic increase in lip volume, we offer Juvéderm® Ultra XC and Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC. The difference in these two products is the firmness of the gel injected. This allows patients the flexibility to customize their results. Depending on the patient’s aesthetic goals, one product may be more suitable than the other. In any case, the Juvéderm® XC products contain lidocaine, a local numbing agent, to ensure that the injections do not cause pain or discomfort. These products are injected into and around the lips, providing instant volume-boosting effects.
Juvéderm Volbella® XC
For a more subtle increase in lip volume, we may recommend Juvéderm Volbella® XC. This formula is particularly soft, producing more subtle results while still creating more voluminous lips that look totally natural. As an added benefit, this treatment can also help diminish the appearance of vertical lip lines. The treatment is performed just like other Juvéderm® products, with injections into and around the lips. This product also contains lidocaine for added comfort during treatment.
Is There Any Downtime After Lip Injections?
Lip injections are non-surgical and minimally invasive, offering substantially less downtime than other cosmetic treatments. In fact, most patients are able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after their appointment, with results already visible. In some cases, patients may experience swelling or soreness around the injection site after treatment, but this should resolve within a few days.
How Long Will Results From Lip Injections Last?
The results from all lip injection treatments, including Juvéderm® Ultra XC, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC and Juvéderm Volbella® XC, are clinically proven to last up to a year or longer. After this time, patients are able to receive additional treatments to maintain their results.
How Much Do Lip Injections Cost?
