Lip filler procedures have grown in popularity over the last few years. With the advances in lip augmentation techniques and a choice of a range of safe, effective dermal fillers, getting a natural-looking, plumper pout is within anyone’s reach.

Whether you want subtle plumpness, natural fullness or serious volume in the lips, fillers can give you the result you have in mind.

And what better time than Valentine’s Day to give your lips a sensual boost?

What Is a Lip Filler?

Lip fillers are cosmetic injectables designed to give the lips a fuller appearance. Several types are available, allowing treatment to be tailored to meet each patient’s goals:

  • Restylane® Silk can provide subtle fullness and definition to the lips.
  • Juvederm Volbella® XC can smooth lines and add natural volume.
  • Juvederm® Ultra XC can plump thinning lips or boost fullness.
  • Restylane® can give the lips serious volume.

These and other hyaluronic acid fillers — basically extracted and reformulated versions of the hyaluronic acid that’s found naturally in the body — provide results that last for about six to 12 months.

For longer-lasting results, consider collagen-based fillers, including Sculptra® Aesthetic and Radiesse®, or a cosmetic fat transfer.

What Can You Expect from Lip Augmentation?

When an experienced facial plastic surgeon or cosmetic injection professional injects a cosmetic filler into your lips, you will see results right away. Ask the doctor to show you your lips halfway through the procedure, and you’ll definitely be able to see the difference between the before and after phases.

If your treatment involves a hyaluronic acid lip filler, you can even change your mind if you don’t like the look after the procedure is done. Your surgeon can inject a safe compound called hyaluronidase, which works to immediately reverse the effects of a hyaluronic acid injection.

In the days following lip augmentation, you will likely experience a bit of swelling. This is normal and can usually be calmed with an ice pack. But it’s for this reason that experts advise against getting a lip filler right before an important event. Try to schedule the procedure at least two weeks ahead of time to allow for a full recovery.
