Lip Juvederm or Restylane filler maintaining lip shape costs?

Since juvederm and restylane are not permanent, I'm guess that one must always go to get their lips touched up every few months or so. Is the price the same every time? Or Is it different every time you go get them done? Please provide approximate costing.

fillers lasts roughly 6-9 months depending on which HA type, some longer like voluma.  you will need touch up over time.  pricing is dependent on who does the procedure, location of oountry and which filler is used.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Lip Juvederm or Restylane filler maintaining lip shape costs?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Hi, we have performed many lip augmentations using dermal fillers or lip implants for almost 30 years.  The Restylane or Juvederm costs about $600 per cc (1 syringe).  Typically patients use 1 syringe per visit every 6 months or so.  Some patients wind up having Permalip implants for a permanent augmentation which is more cost effective, over the long term,  at $3,20 for one lip and $4,500 for both.

Hope this helps.

Lip Injections and Cost

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Injections for the lips and other areas of the face are always based on the amount of product needed.  If you only need one syringe then that is all that you pay for.  Some companies make a half of a syringe if that is all that you need and just pay for that.  Best, Dr. Green

Hello eli8881,
Thanks for your question.
HA, or hyaluronic acid, fillers are not permanent as you mentioned.
Depending on the volume of syringe used costs for Restylane and Juvederm run from $300-$550.
Restylane makes a 0.5cc syringe that does wonders in my hands at filling lips in a shapely way while avoiding duck lips.  We only charge $300 for it so it is quite economical for most patients.
Let us know if we can help.
Take care,
Dr. Shah

Filler in lips

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
When putting fillers into lips, shape is more important than size.  I usually start with one syringe of Restylane or Juvederm Ultra.  It is important not to inject the entire lip the same but rather to accentuate certain areas to create a beautiful lip.  My typical fee for one syringe of filler is $499-$599, depending on the exact filler and technique used.  Results in this highly mobile area can be expected to last 6-12 months.

If you have never had filler in your lips be sure that you select a very experienced provider and are able to communicate what your goals are. Also make sure that you share the same aesthetics of what would look nice on your face. In general people pay for a syringe and the price can be anywhere from about $500-$1000 depending on what you are doing. If you are not using an entire syringe ask about their policy of holding the remainder in case you need a touch up a couple of weeks later. This is not recommended by the companies because of contamination risk, but some practices will allow this for a limited period of time. Each filler has slightly different characteristics with regard to softness and longevity. Typically filler in the lips will last around 6-12 months depending the product and how much is placed. Artistically placed filler can be quite beautiful, and when overdone a source of ridicule. Sadly, injectors are sometimes the biggest offenders when it comes to the latter. 
If you find that you love having your lips filled fat transfer may be an option for a permanent correction, but the results are different than with fillers. Fat can nicely plump the pink vermillion, but does not work well to define the border of the lip or treat wrinkles. Combination therapy can be very cost effective for some patients.
Best of luck!
