Lip Injections Houston

Lip Injections Procedure

During your Houston lip augmentation, Dr. Schusterman will use the predetermined lip filler to inject into your lips, creating the shape and volume needed. No anesthesia is necessary, but a topical agent will be used to numb the injection site. The entire treatment should only take about 15 minutes, and no downtime is required.

Lip Fillers Results

Dr. Schusterman wants to ensure you experience the safest and best lip fillers Houston has to offer, and will have specific aftercare instructions to follow for optimal healing. It is very crucial to avoid sun exposure, limit drinking alcohol, and avoid smoking for at least a week to achieve your best results.

Your results should last for six months to eight months. You will want to follow a maintenance plan to keep your lip look consistent as, over time, the lip filler will eventually be metabolized within your body.

Lip Fillers Recovery

It is important not to disturb your lips for 24-48 hours by either massaging or rubbing them. You will also want to make sure you only sleep on your back for the first night to make sure the lip filler does not have any pressure put upon it.
