Lip Augmentation - El Paso, Texas
Have you ever wondered what your lips say about your personality? Have you thought about fuller, plump, sexier lips? Do you fight signs of aging around your lips? If so, Lip augmentation at our El Paso, Texas office may be the right procedure for you.
As an Oculoplastic Surgeon, Dr. Dennis Reiter specializes in lip augmentation through non-invasive techniques including lip fillers (dermal fillers) and Ultherapy lip treatments. Lip enhancements can provide definition to the vermilion border, the cupids bow, and can plump, firm, and enhance the overall lip shape.
With hyaluronic acid fillers, or dermal fillers, Dr. Reiter can plump, define, and refine both the upper and bottom lip. The products used provide temporary results, which can last up to 18 months (based on FDA clinical studies). The process is relatively quick, with little downtime, however, some patients may experience slight bruising or swelling.
A great option for fine lines and wrinkles in the upper lip area is Ultherapy 1.5mm treatment. With the Ultherapy 1.5mm treatment, we can target the shallow layer of skin above and below the lip to smoothen texture, and tone the skin. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive FDA procedure approved and indicated to lift loose and saggy skin.
When dermal fillers and Ultherapy are combined, the result can be gorgeous, luscious lips, showing off a beautiful smile!
How is Lip Augmentation done?
With dermal fillers, Dr. Dennis Reiter and staff will apply topical numbing cream to the area of injection for comfort. The products used also contain Lidocaine, which will help keep the area numb throughout the procedure. The procedure only takes a few minutes, and the downtime is minimal.
When Ultherapy is done, Ultherapy will typically be done 3-5 days prior to injections, but it may be necessary to wait up to 3 months following Ultherapy treatment of the lips.
