As we age, our bodies naturally stop producing collagen. This leads to thinning lips, wrinkles, indents, and other unpleasant signs of aging. Our Houston lip augmentation, injections, and fillers offer the opportunity to restore plump, youthful lips or create the lip volume you’ve always wanted. These fillers were developed to increase lip size, while filling in wrinkles and smoothing skin. This non-invasive treatment requires no surgery and involves virtually no recovery time or pain.
Lip Fillers and Injections
Lip fillers and injections provide an option to augment the look of your lips without surgery. This treatment is performed in the office in a matter of minutes. Fillers do not require a long recovery time and produces minimal side effects. The most common fillers used for lip enhancement include:
Juvéderm is a family of dermal fillers designed to address the signs of facial aging. The injections contain hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in the body. Hyaluronic acid stimulates the cells that produce collagen, plumping the skin and filling in wrinkles and lines. Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Volbella XC are the two fillers most commonly used to enhance the lips.
The process takes somewhere between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on the extent of treatment. Injections contain a small amount of lidocaine to make treatment more comfortable. After the injections are administered, the doctor will massage the area to ensure even distribution.
At FACE facial plastic surgery center in Houston, we offer the latest generation in hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers, Revanesse, a revolutionary filler with the highest concentration of HA. This unique facial filler is exceptionally smooth due to a proprietary manufacturing process. It starts with premium quality HA with a higher molecular weight, and a manufacturing process that produces uniquely spherical particles, leading to less swelling and exceptionally smooth, natural results.
Restylane is also a facial filler made from hyaluronic acid. It is used to treat the midface, cheek, and mouth areas. Restylane is similar to Juvéderm product and appropriate for specific facial areas. Your doctor will be able to make recommendations on the right treatment option based on your medical history and vision for your facial rejuvenation treatment.
You Are an Individual. So is Our Process.
Anyone who has had severe allergic reactions resulting in anaphylaxis should not use lip fillers. Anyone with an allergic reaction to lidocaine should avoid this type of treatment. Juvéderm is not for individuals under 21 years of age. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use lip fillers. The risks of lip filler treatments are rare but may include:
- Allergic reactions
- Lumpy injection sites
- Inflamed tissue
- Blocked blood vessel

The cost of lip filler is tied to the expertise and skill of your injector. As a double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, and having performed thousands of successful injections, Dr. Siegel is sought out for creating plumper, fuller lips that appeared enhanced, not fake, or “injected.” In the Houston area, a Juvéderm, or other filler treatment typically costs around $650.
