Basin Dermatology & Cosmetic Center of Midland performs injectable Dermal Filler treatments and lip augmentation for fast, visible, natural-appearing results for patients in Midland. We work with the latest hyaluronic acid injectable dermal gel fillers called Juvederm, and Restylane Lyft that will enhance and augment thin lips by adding volume and correcting shape.
Which product is right for me?
Before choosing a particular procedure or product you need to have a consultation to determine your lip shape, your expectations, and the time period you’ll want the effect to last. Your doctor will then discuss a treatment plan with you on your options and help you pick the one for your desired results.
Lip Enhancer – Injectable
Hyaluronic acid fillers are the latest innovation in the cosmetic industry for lip enhancement. They are safe, durable, and require no skin testing. Juvéderm, Juvéderm Ultra Plus with Lidocaine, are just some of the popular dermal fillers doctors work with and are all inserted with a local anesthetic such as lidocaine for a pain-free procedure.
What should be expected during recovery?
After a lip augmentation, your lips may remain swollen for a few hours to several days. You may resume your activities within several hours, but a follow-up treatment may be required.
Implants cause only minimal discomfort and pain. Small stitches may be needed but will be removed in a few days. The swelling may last up to a week after the procedure, but cold compresses and keeping your head elevated will significantly reduce it. In some cases, you may be prescribed medication. Eating and brushing may cause some discomfort for a few days.
Generally, it takes a longer time to recover after a lip rejuvenation procedure. It is essential to moisturize regularly with Aquaphor ointment in the first two weeks. In some cases, patients are prescribed medication to control the discomfort. Initial redness will subside in the following weeks to a pale pink tone.
