What are Lip Fillers?

Cosmetic lip procedures add both definition and volume to your lips, as well as help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. This treatment is perfect for anyone interested in achieving fuller, more youthful-looking lips.


For adults over 21, JUVÉDERM® VOLUX XC injectable gel is used for deep injection to enhance jawline definition in cases of moderate to severe loss.

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC injectable gel is used for deep injection in the cheek area to address volume loss associated with aging, as well as augmentation of the chin area to improve the chin profile.

For moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as nasolabial folds, JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE® XC, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC, and JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC injectable gels are used for injection into facial tissue. JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE® XC injectable gel is specifically for adults over 21.

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC injectable gel is also used for lip augmentation and injection into the perioral area in adults over 21.

JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC injectable gel is used for lip augmentation and correction of perioral lines, as well as for injection into undereye hollows to improve their appearance in adults over 21.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a type of sugar molecule that the body produces naturally. It is mostly found in the skin, joints, and eyes. This substance helps keep the skin hydrated and looking full. Lip fillers can help to replenish the levels of hyaluronic acid in the lips, giving them a fuller, more hydrated appearance.


We LOVE Restylane Kysse, a formula made specifically for the lips, providing natural-looking lip plumping with the added benefit of hydration from hyaluronic acid.

The RHA Collection

The RHA collection is a range of dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid. They help to keep the skin hydrated and plump and are specifically designed to achieve natural-looking results. This collection works to adapt to your individual facial expressions, providing a tailored result.

Benefits of Lip Filler

Many women are self-conscious about the size and shape of their lips. A natural look is important to many people, but sometimes you just want a boost in the right areas. That's where lip fillers come in, giving your smile a fuller appearance and increasing confidence.

Other benefits of lip fillers include:

  • Making your lips more symmetrical
  • Making wrinkles around the mouth less noticeable
  • Adding color to natural lips
  • Giving the lips a more hydrated and plump appearance

Are Lip Fillers Right For Me?

Lip fillers address several concerns, such as:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth
  • Lack of volume in the lips

  • Unwanted creases in the lips

Your Lip Filler Procedure

Lip fillers are injected using a very fine needle.

Lip Filler Results and Aftercare

Your lips will appear fuller and more hydrated immediately after treatment.

While some side effects like swelling, bruising, and tenderness are common after the treatment, they usually go away within a week, but could be longer depending on patient factors and the number of syringes used.

You'll want to avoid a few activities after treatment, like drinking alcohol, strenuous exercise, and being in direct sunlight. These things can lead to more side effects. Also, for 24 hours after your treatment, avoid applying lipstick or lip gloss or makeup to the treated area.

Lip Filler Swelling Stages

Immediately After Your Procedure

It is normal to experience some swelling. However, the uneven texture will gradually become smooth over the next few days to weeks.

Day One

Swelling on the day following your treatment is to be expected and is part of your healing process. You may notice some trouble eating or talking. This is all normal and will fade with time.

Day Two

You will likely notice swelling. In addition, you may see some bumps and bruises, which are also normal and part of your healing process.

Day Three

While it may be easier to talk and eat, you will still see some swelling and bruising. This should subside over the next few days to weeks.

Two Weeks

Most if not all swelling should have dissipated by now, and you will finally see your results! Although there may be some residual bruising, it too shall fade in due time.

Four Weeks

By now, all swelling and bruising should be gone, and you should see your final results! If there is any need for correction, we can schedule that at this time.

Lip Fillers FAQs

Lip fillers typically last a few months to years depending on the product used and patient factors.

So long as you go to a skilled professional, lip filler procedures are typically safe. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, and discomfort.

Although you can still get lip fillers while pregnant or breastfeeding, we recommend waiting until after you finish breastfeeding.

If you go to an experienced lip injector, temporary fillers shouldn't ruin your natural lips. If you are unhappy with the results, they can be reversed.

Depending on which filler you choose and your aesthetic goals, you'll need to schedule follow-up treatments every six months or yearly.

To avoid leakage, give your lips at least 2 hours to set after getting filler.
