What is Lip Filler?

Lip fillers are dermal fillers that are used to treat the lip area specifically. Dermal fillers are currently one of the most popular non-invasive treatments. Beyond refining the look of your lips, the injection also stimulates collagen production and promotes skin elasticity and health. A Lip Filler treatment is very quick and can be performed during your lunch break, in between running errands, or squeezed into your schedule on a busy day. When you make an appointment to visit our clinic, Dr. Raggio and his team of specialists can recommend a range of dermal fillers that will be perfect for your lips.

What’s the first step for Lip Filler?

What are the first steps?

Getting a Lip Filler in Birmingham is as easy as scheduling a consultation session and potentially receiving the treatment the same day. During your consult with Dr. Raggio, we will explain what a lip filler involves, assess your intended goals, and ascertain how the procedure can be beneficial for your overall aesthetic. Whether you choose to get the procedure the same day as your consultation or book a separate appointment, we will guide you through the process to make it as easy and as smooth as possible.

What to expect on the day of a Lip Filler treatment

On the day of your appointment, Dr. Raggio will explain which lip filler and technique are best suited for you, and the amount of volume determined based on your shared goals and expectations 

After cleaning the skin around your lips, a numbing agent may be applied to minimize discomfort during the procedure. The numbing agent may not be necessary for every patient given how quick the overall process is, but for individuals who are nervous about needles, it can help you feel relaxed. Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is also available for those with high anxiety with injections. Once your skin is numb, Dr. Raggio will begin injecting the filler into the lips at strategic points to increase the volume while also enhancing your natural contours. Dr. Raggio often asks patients to simultaneously examine the work to see if they are satisfied with the treatment.

You can expect the entire lip filler experience to last anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes. Our clients typically return to their regular daily activities without having to set aside any downtime after the procedure.

Lip Filler recovery

Because a Lip Filler is so well-tolerated, non-invasive, and doesn’t require any downtime, you can expect a fairly smooth recovery process in the days following your treatment. At most, a patient will experience some redness and swelling at the injection sites, which typically disappear within a few hours but can linger for a few days. 

It is common for your lips to look slightly “overfilled” initially as the filler sets in. This will dissipate within a few days as the product integrates into the tissue.

How much does Lip Filler cost in Birmingham, AL?

The cost of Lip Filler in Birmingham is determined by the following: 

  • The type of filler
  • Amount of filler used
  • How often you will need follow-up sessions

Our team will let you know the exact price of your treatment before proceeding.

    Dr. Raggio is the absolute best! He listens and is very precise with his injections. I am extremely happy with the results I have gotten with him. He does not push any services on you, either. I have uploaded two pictures to show the difference. I get Botox and lip filler.

    I went to Dr Reggio for my eyelids. They were folding over. I was scared to have the surgery but the right eye was bothering me. So I decided to have the surgery and this Doctor is such a delight and kind-hearted. I am very, very happy with the way my surgery turned out. I would highly recommend Dr. Raggio to anyone!
