What are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers are a popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure that adds volume and fullness to the lips. The fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, naturally found in the body, and aim to enhance your facial features while preserving a natural look.


Restylane is a range of injectable fillers that contain hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body that helps to restore volume to hands and facial features. It is a trusted brand that offers a youthful, natural look by reducing wrinkles and fine lines, creating fuller lips, accentuating contours, and improving skin’s appearance. One of the unique products in the Restylane family is Restylane Kysse. This product is specifically designed for lip augmentation and smoothing out wrinkles around the mouth. It provides natural results and can help enhance your overall facial features.


When looking to restore facial contours and improve signs of aging, Juvéderm is perfect. Juvéderm is a collection of FDA-approved injectable dermal fillers. It is the #1 chosen dermal filler collection in the US and the world, offering six different and long-lasting fillers to increase volume to specific areas of your face.

Two of the most popular products in the Juvéderm collection are VOLBELLA XC and Juvéderm ULTRA XC. They add subtle volume to lips and smooth vertical lip lines, also known as smoker’s lines. They can also correct perioral lines, which are wrinkles around the mouth.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid (HA) naturally occurs in the body and helps maintain your skin’s hydration and volume. It is a large, complex sugar molecule found in high concentrations in connective tissues, such as the skin, joints, and eyes.

Benefits of Lip Filler

Lip filler treatment can offer various benefits to individuals looking to enhance the appearance of their lips. This procedure involves injecting a dermal filler, usually hyaluronic acid, into the lips for added volume and definition. Some of the advantages of lip filler treatment are:

  • Improved self-confidence through enhanced appearance
  • Increased definition, symmetry, and volume of the lips
  • Softening of perioral lines and wrinkles
  • Safe and minimally invasive procedure
  • Customizable treatment to achieve desired results
  • Hydrates and moisturizes the lips, resulting in a smoother texture

Am I a candidate for Lip Filler?

Most people are eligible to receive lip filler treatments. However, specific contraindications may disqualify someone from receiving treatment. These include:

  • Allergies to ingredients in fillers or hyaluronic acid
  • Active infections or rashes near the lips
  • Specific conditions such as autoimmune diseases or diabetes
  • Excessive scarring or tissue damage near your lips
  • A history of adverse reactions to fillers or injectables
  • Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Those under 18 years old

Some concerns that Lip Fillers address:

  • Thin lips
  • Lip asymmetry
  • Perioral lines and wrinkles
  • Droopy corners of the mouth
  • Lost fullness in lips due to aging
  • Uneven texture or shape of the lips

Consultation and Preparation

Before undergoing lip filler treatment, we will schedule a consultation with a qualified medical professional. During the consultation, we will evaluate your medical history and assess your eligibility for treatment. We will discuss your desired results and explain the treatment process and any potential risks or side effects. We may also recommend other treatments or procedures to achieve your desired results.

For lip filler treatment preparation, there are a few things you can do:

  • Avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements, such as aspirin and fish oil, for at least a week before the treatment to minimize your bruising risk
  • Avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours before the treatment
  • Notify us of any allergies or medical conditions you have
  • Arrive at the appointment with a clean, makeup-free face
  • Wear comfortable clothing and avoid wearing jewelry around the face

Choosing Lip Fillers

Lip filler treatments are designed to be customized based on each individual’s unique facial features and aesthetic goals. The type of filler used will depend on several factors, including the individual’s age, skin type, and desired outcome.

Your Lip Filler Treatment

If you’re considering lip filler treatment, knowing what to expect during the procedure is important.

First, your healthcare provider will apply a topical anesthetic to your lips to numb them and make the procedure more comfortable. Then, they inject a dermal filler into your lips to add volume and enhance their shape. The length of the procedure can vary depending on the amount of filler being injected and the technique used by your provider. However, most lip filler treatments take around 15-30 minutes.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

You should see immediate results after getting lip fillers. However, it’s important to note that your lips can appear swollen or bruised for the first few days after the procedure.

This is normal and should subside within a week. After getting lip fillers, avoiding strenuous exercise for at least 24-48 hours is essential. Elevated blood pressure and heart rate from exercise can increase swelling and bruising.

You should also avoid alcohol, hot drinks, and salty foods for the first 24 hours, as they can dehydrate you and prolong swelling. Instead, drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. To reduce swelling and bruising, apply ice to your lips for at least 20 minutes every hour during the first 48 hours after the procedure.

Lip Filler Swelling Stages


Straight after the treatment, your lips will have significant swelling. You may also experience some redness and bruising around the injection site.

Day One

After receiving lip fillers, the most intense swelling will happen in the first 24-48 hours. During this period of recovery from injections, it is not uncommon to experience a little soreness and tenderness in your lips.

Day Two

Two days after your injections, your lips may still be a little swollen, sensitive, and bruised. The lips may feel ‘bumpy,’ but this is expected and should subside in a few days.

Day Three

Swelling will continue to subside and should be entirely gone after the first 48 hours. By day three, any remaining tenderness or bruising should be minimal.

Two Weeks

Around two weeks after your treatment, you should start to see the final results of your lip fillers. Any residual swelling or lumps should have disappeared by this point.

Four Weeks

Any minor asymmetries or irregularities in your lips should have resolved completely by the four-week mark.

Lip Filler Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are Lip Fillers painful?

    Most people report feeling only mild discomfort during the injection process. Your provider may apply numbing cream or an ice pack to help reduce any pain.

  • Are Lip Fillers safe? What are the risks?

    Lip fillers, when administered by a certified specialist, are usually deemed safe. However, there are risks with any medical procedure, including lip fillers—the potential risk of infection or allergic reaction to the product being injected.

  • Are Lip Fillers permanent?

    Although lip fillers are not a permanent solution, the effects usually last around 6-12 months before gradually wearing off.

  • Will Lip Filler ruin my lips?

    When administered by an experienced professional, lip fillers should not ruin your lips.

  • Can I get a Lip Filler while pregnant or breastfeeding?

    Given the lack of research regarding lip filler safety during pregnancy and breastfeeding, it is advised that women avoid receiving this treatment during these times.

  • How long should I wait to eat or drink after having my lips filled?

    It’s ideal to avoid eating or drinking for several hours after your treatment to allow the filler to settle properly.

  • How often should I expect to schedule follow-up Lip Filler treatments to maintain results?

    Depending on the type of filler you choose and your body’s metabolism, follow-up treatments may be needed every six to 12 months to keep up with your desired outcomes. Regular care is necessary for sustained results.

  • How much do Lip Fillers cost?

    Lip filler costs vary depending on the type and amount of filler used. Costs will be discussed at the time of your consultation.
