Fillers needed, not Botox

To make your lips fuller, Botox is not what you need. Fillers add volume. Please return to your injector to discuss your concerns and talk about fillers.

Botox and lips

It sounds like you were expecting a dramatic change with a very small amount of product - however, what you should expect to see is a slight relaxation of the muscle around your lip(s) which would turn the lip out, giving a fuller look. Dermal fillers to the lips will plump your lips and if you've not considered this treatment, you should!

Botox for lips

Botox can relax the muscles of the lip and cause a gentle outward roll of the lip, although it is not dramatic. Botox can also be used to soften the vertical lip lines that can result from drinking out of a straw, smoking, etc. If you want "plumping" of the lip, you will need a hyaluronic acid filler such as Restylane or Juvederm. The combination of botox and filler can be quite nice in shaping the lips.

No change with Botox in the lip

Botox is used to relax muscles and improve wrinkles. It is not used for making lips "look a little fuller". Sounds like there was a miscommunication between you and your doctor.

Botox is NOT a lip plumper

Botox is NOT a lip plumper. It is a neuromodulator meaning it works to stop muscle movement. You didn't have 6cc of Botox either. You had 6 units, which is a tiny drop into each area. Botox is not a lip filler. If you expected more to happen, see your injector, but please understand that injecting Botox around the mouth area is to inhibit you from creating lines and creases. It absolutely doesn't work to plump your lips, period.
