Lip fillers are a very popular non-surgical method of lip augmentation that uses hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers such as Juvéderm or Restylane to add volume, shape, and structure to smaller, thin lips as well as help smooth away wrinkles and lip lines.

What can I expect from lip fillers treatment?

During your lip augmentation using fillers, your doctor or skincare specialist may first apply a topical or local numbing agent or nerve blocking injection to numb the lips. Once the numbing effect is achieved, a fine needle is used to inject the appropriate hyaluronic dermal filler, whether Restylane or Juvéderm, into the areas needing more volume and structure. Ice may be applied after your injections to help reduce any redness or swelling. You will be able to continue your usual activities immediately after your procedure, making lip filler augmentation a perfect lunchtime treatment.

Am I a good candidate for lip fillers?

If you are looking for more volume, shape and definition to your lips, you may be a good candidate for lip fillers, especially if you are considering lip augmentation for the first time. For those patients who are looking for a long-lasting lip augmentation results, Dr. Pearlman may recommend lip implants rather than lip fillers.

FAQs Lip Filler

    How long do lip fillers last?

    Most dermal lip fillers will last in the range of four to six months before requiring another session. This makes lip fillers a great option if you are unsure about the size, shape or volume you are looking to achieve or if you are undergoing lip augmentation for the first time.

    Can I wear lipstick after receiving my lip fillers?

    Immediately after your lip fillers treatment, it is recommended that you do not apply any lipstick or other lip products. It is also advised to avoid any high heat areas or activities such as saunas, spas, sunbathing, and tanning as well as avoiding any overly strenuous activity which could cause more bruising in the injected areas.
