Lip Filler FAQ
Lip filler is quite a popular treatment these days, but many people still have a lot of questions about the procedure. We have compiled a list of lip filler FAQ to help you learn more about the treatment and what to expect.
What are lip fillers made of?
Most popular fillers like Restylane or Juvéderm are made of hyaluronic acid. This substance occurs naturally in the body and can also be found in many over the counter products. These fillers retain moisture and increase volume, shape, and structure. Additionally, fillers may have a small amount of lidocaine to make the injection more comfortable.
How long do fillers last?
This depends on the filler you choose. Typically, you can expect your filler to last from 6-12 months.
Are lip fillers safe?
Yes, FDA approved lip fillers are safe for most patients.
How much filler do I need?
Again, this depends on your body, your goals, and which type of filler you choose.
Is it painful?
Since the lips are a very sensitive area, there is some discomfort involved. However, there are different methods for numbing the area before the procedure, as well as the lidocaine in the filler. These all help to make your treatment more comfortable.
How much are lip fillers?
This is a commonly asked question. The price ranges from $400-$1500 but this depends on several factors. Which type of filler you choose, how much it is needed, plus any clinic/provider fees all play a role in the final cost.
Will my lips be bruised after?
Its possible. Slight bruising may happen after your treatment but its very easy to cover with makeup. There are things you can do to help minimize bruising and your provider will discuss this with you beforehand.
How will my lips feel with lip filler?
Once your swelling goes down, your lips shouldn’t feel any different. They will still feel like your lips, just plumper.
