What are lip fillers and how do they work? 

Lip fillers are dermal fillers indicated for use in the lips. Most are hyaluronic acid-based (HA) fillers, which means that they attract water from the surrounding tissues to cause a natural plumping effect once injected. HA fillers are also very soft, making them a favorite for the lip area because they feel and look very natural.

Although most of us associate lip fillers with simply increasing the size and volume of the lips, they are also used to:

  • Enhance and define the border of the lips
  • Provide lift, structure, and support to the lips
  • Turn up the corners of the lips to a more youthful positioning
  • Create a balance between the upper and lower lip
  • Enhance the cupids bow and overall shape of the lips
  • Correct asymmetries in the lip area

During your initial consultation, you and your provider will discuss your aesthetic goals for your lips and map out a plan to achieve this with lip filler. Our providers focus on creating lips that look soft, beautiful, natural, and 100% YOU!

What are the different types of lip fillers?

Depending on your lips' original size and shape and your desired aesthetic, we may recommend different fillers to create your ideal lips. Infinite Youth Medical Spa offers a broad range of lip fillers because each has unique properties that may help you achieve your goal. Most of the lip fillers we offer last up to one year. The most common lip fillers are:

  • Juvéderm® Volbella™ and Juvéderm® Ultra™
  • Restylane® and Restylane® KYSSE™
  • Revanesse® VERSA™

What should I expect before and after my lip filler procedure?

Your provider will recommend that you abstain from using certain OTC drugs like aspirin or NSAIDs such as ibuprofen before your appointment and supplements like fish oil, as they may increase your chance of bruising during your treatment. She may also prescribe a prophylactic antiviral before your lip filler appointment if you suffer from fever blisters or cold sores.

Your provider will use topical numbing and ice to ease any discomfort associated with the injection process during your appointment. Many of the fillers we use also have numbing agents within the product, making the injection process very comfortable. Based on the goals you have for your lip shape and size, your provider will inject the selected lip filler to enhance the appearance of your lips.

In some cases, your provider may even recommend a few units of Botox® or Dysport® in addition to filler to slightly flip your upper lip and expose more surface area, which makes your upper lip look fuller.

Immediately after your injections, your lips will be swollen and tender. Bruising is also a possibility with lip filler. You may even feel as though your lips are bumpy in certain areas. All of these symptoms will subside within a week as your new lips take their beautiful new shape. Be sure to schedule lip filler at least two weeks before any special event to ensure all swelling has gone down.

How much does lip filler cost?

The cost of lip filler depends on the product you and your provider decide to use to enhance your lips. Most treatments start at $650.
