What Are Lip Fillers?


Lip fillers are hyaluronic acid or collagen-based injections that can alter the appearance of the lips. These two substances are used because they are naturally found within the body and can create a desirable fullness. Individuals seek out lip fillers to add more volume to thinning lips, to smooth any mouth creases, and to improve their smiles. Here are some benefits of lip fillers:

  • You select the filler products desired
  • Excess fillers are free of side effects and risks
  • Can correct “gummy” smiles
  • Many products can be dissolved
  • Can correct disproportionate lips
  • Many fillers are all-natural
  • You can control your injection amount


How Do Lip Fillers Work?


The procedure begins with a facial assessment, the process by which the medical professional assesses the client’s face and sometimes takes pictures of the lips to mark the injection sites. Following this initial step, the injection sites are cleaned to prevent bacterial infection. For purposes of reducing pain, anesthetic ointments are sometimes applied to the lips. Your skilled injector will then make placements of the filler in the areas that outline the smile. Then, the lips are massaged to spread the filler around. Afterwards, you may apply an icepack to reduce swelling.


Who Is a Good Candidate for Lip Fillers?


Nearly everyone with interest in creating fuller lips or a better smile are candidates for lip fillers. Candidacy is so flexible because the injections are natural, and there is no risk involved in the procedure. For those who wish for plush lips, fewer wrinkles around the mouth, and an improved smile, lip fillers are a viable option.


What Results Can You Expect from Lip Fillers?


In the initial stages of recovery, you may notice some swelling and bruising near the injection sites. Know that this is normal and that you will see improvement within four weeks. You will notice results immediately in lip and smile fullness. These results will generally last for six months.
