Despite what is often said, the facial feature that usually draws the most attention is the mouth. Even if it’s not what catches someone’s eye immediately, the moment you start talking, there will be multiple instances of mouth gazing, and that could be a good thing or a bad thing. For those who are subconscious about thinner “bird-lips”, or just overall lack of lip volume, there is a very popular and non-surgical solution to improving your lips’ appearance. At Personique on the Spot in Austin, Texas, we strive to provide the best experience and stunning Lip Fillers results in town! With two convenient locations, you can achieve the fuller, voluminous lips that you’ve always dreamed of in no time!
Lip Fillers are a non-surgical lip augmentation that uses injections of gel-like substances that serve as a non-surgical way to restore volume and fullness to your lips without the need for a plastic surgeon!
While there are other techniques such as fat injections, at Personique on the Spot, we offer several different types of fillers with naturally occurring Hyaluronic Acid fillers (HA). HA is a component found in your body that is primarily located in your skin’s connective tissue. While your results won’t last forever (unfortunately), they will last you anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending on which you use.
Juvederm is an FDA-approved injection that is filled with a water-binding natural ingredient known as “hyaluronic acid”. This ingredient is already found naturally in the skin and works wonders in creating fuller, more volumized lips without requiring any harsh chemicals or dangerous additives. We offer the full line of their products, including Juvederm Ultra.
Radiesse is a volumizing filler that contains tiny calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. These calcium microspheres are very similar to the natural minerals found in our bodies. Over time, the body absorbs the microspheres and gel, leaving only natural collagen behind.
This treatment is unique in that it stimulates the production of new collagen, so even after the filler material breaks down, newly replenished collagen remains around the injection site to maintain a firm, smooth complexion.
Restylane is a part of the hyaluronic acid filler family that creates volume to enhance facial contouring. As an FDA-approved filler, Restylane will boost collagen production and reduce the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles.

During this appointment, you will meet with a member of our aesthetic team who will answer any questions or concerns you have, listen to your desires for the results, as well as offer advice on the treatment and a recovery plan for your lips. You will also be asked about your medical history, during which time we suggest being completely open and honest with your provider to help reduce any unnecessary risks.

When it’s time for your Lip Filler treatment, you will recline in our chair and make yourself as comfortable as possible. We will first administer local anesthesia or apply a topical numbing cream to your lips to reduce any pain, as well as relax you during the actual injections.
Next, using a very thin needle, we will inject the chosen filler into specific areas of your lips. Depending on what was discussed during your consultation and what your desired appearance is, this could take place on the edges of your lips (vermillion border), the curve in the center of your upper lip (Cupid’s bow), and your oral commissures (corners of your mouth).
With each specific injection, the injector will gently massage the filler around and assess the results, only adding more if needed. Once the injections are completed, you may be given an ice pack to reduce any swelling or bruising that may occur.
Your entire treatment session should only take about 30 minutes, but this will vary with each patient.
Before you leave our Med Spa, you will be asked to wait around for about 10 minutes to make sure you don’t have any allergic reactions. Once it seems like you’re OK, we will dismiss you and you can return to your normal routine since we do not use general anesthesia. It is important to remember that your lips may be slightly reddened, bruised, or have an “overfilled” appearance. These reactions will subside over time but may draw attention.
We will also provide you with some instructions about how to get the most out of your filler procedure and have the most successful recovery. You should avoid exercising or any strenuous activity during the first 24 hours, but you should remember to drink plenty of water. Also during this time period, do your best to avoid touching or pursing your lips, so this means no kissing, using straws, and even wearing lip balm, lipstick, etc.
Finally, if you are experiencing any pain or discomfort, you can lightly apply a bag of ice to your lips for about 10 minutes at a time. This will also help with inflammation.

Since we use a topical anesthetic and the latest techniques, collagen fillers should not be painful. Some of the fillers also contain Lidocaine or another form of numbing medication to ease any discomfort. You may feel a slight pinch from the needle, but it should be rather quick. Most patients find the lip enhancement procedure to be mostly pain-free.
The average patient only requires one treatment to see stunning changes to their lips. It is important to remember that although the results are long-lasting, your body will absorb them over time. If you enjoy the aesthetic results of your lip filler treatment, you should consider scheduling maintenance appointments as you see less volume.
You should notice some immediate changes, but your lips will still be a little puffier. True results will vary with each of our patients, but on average, you should be able to recognize them once the bruising or swelling subsides. Your desired results should last you anywhere between 12 months and 18 months.
