  1. What is Lip Filler? Lip fillers, also known as dermal fillers or lip injections, are cosmetic treatments that use hyaluronic acid-based substances to add volume and shape to the lips. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps maintain moisture and firmness. When injected strategically, lip fillers can provide a natural-looking enhancement.

  2. Reasons to Consider Lip Fillers: There are various reasons why individuals choose to get lip fillers. Some common motivations include:

  • Enhancing lip volume and fullness

  • Defining the lip border and improving symmetry

  • Correcting asymmetry or imbalances in lip shape

  • Restoring lost volume due to aging

  • Boosting self-confidence and feeling more attractive

  1. The Process and Expectations for First-Time Clients: If you're a first-time client considering lip fillers, here's what you can expect:

  • Consultation: Schedule a complimentary consultation with Boheme Aesthetics & Wellness by calling or texting us at 360-788-4112. During this consultation, our expert provider will assess your lips, discuss your goals, and address any concerns you may have.

  • Treatment Plan: Based on your unique features and desired outcome, our provider will recommend a personalized treatment plan, outlining the amount and type of filler required.

  • Same-Day Treatment: In many cases, lip filler injections can be performed on the same day as your consultation, saving you time and providing immediate results.

  1. Choosing the Right Type of Filler: The choice of filler depends on your goals and the desired outcome. At Boheme Aesthetics & Wellness, we use premium hyaluronic acid-based fillers renowned for their safety and natural-looking results. During your consultation, our provider will guide you in selecting the most suitable filler for your specific needs.

  2. Preparing for Your Lip Filler Injection: To ensure optimal results and a comfortable experience, it's important to follow these preparation guidelines:

  • Avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements for a few days before the procedure.

  • Stay hydrated to promote optimal skin health.

  • Avoid alcohol and smoking, as they can hinder the healing process.

  • Discuss any allergies or medical conditions with your provider.

  1. Side Effects and Aftercare: While lip fillers are generally safe, some common side effects may include mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness. These effects are temporary and typically subside within a few days

. To minimize discomfort and promote healing, follow your provider's aftercare instructions, which may include applying ice packs, avoiding strenuous activities, and using recommended topical products.

  1. Eligibility for Lip Fillers: Lip fillers are generally suitable for healthy individuals looking to enhance their lips. However, it's important to discuss your medical history, medications, and allergies with your provider during the consultation. Pregnant or breastfeeding individuals should defer lip filler treatments.

  2. Provider Technique and Aesthetic: Choosing a skilled and experienced provider, such as our board-certified and award-winning medical director at Boheme Aesthetics & Wellness, Hillary Patton, is crucial. A provider's technique and artistic eye play a significant role in achieving natural-looking results that complement your facial features and meet your desired aesthetic. Hillary suggests ¨Ask your provider for their before and after results. Not before and afters from their collegues or elsewhere but from their actual work. Otherwise you really may end up with a results that do not meet your expectations¨

  3. Pain and Discomfort: Clients often wonder if lip fillers hurt. While everyone's pain tolerance varies, a topical numbing cream is applied before the procedure to minimize discomfort. Additionally, the fillers we use at Boheme Aesthetics & Wellness contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to further enhance your comfort during the treatment.

  4. Adjusting or Reversing Lip Fillers: In the rare event that you're unhappy with your lip filler results, don't worry. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be adjusted or reversed using an enzyme called hyaluronidase. This solution dissolves the filler, allowing for modification or complete removal.

  5. Achieving the Final Look and Longevity: While you'll notice an immediate difference in your lip volume and shape, the final results will be visible once any swelling subsides. Typically, this takes a few days. The longevity of lip fillers varies depending on factors such as the type of filler used and your individual metabolism. On average, results last between 6 to 12 months, after which a touch-up or repeat treatment may be desired.

  6. Lip Filler Costs: Expect to pay $600-$800 as a general entry point. The cost of lip fillers depends on factors such as the type and amount of filler needed. At Boheme Aesthetics & Wellness, we offer competitive pricing for our lip filler treatments. For detailed pricing information, please visit our website at or call/text us at 360-788-4112.
