How Do Lip Fillers Work?

Lip fillers are dermal fillers injected into the lips, just beneath the skin. Often formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA), which is found naturally in the body, these gels add volume and hydration to the lips. They can be used to:

  • Enhance the size of naturally thin lips
  • Replace lip volume lost to aging
  • Define the borders of the lips
  • Reduce vertical lines on and around the lips

What Happens During a Lip Filler Treatment?

Your experienced injector will begin by examining your lips and discussing your goals with you to determine a custom treatment plan. He or she will then administer a short series of injections to create your desired look. This process typically takes less than 30 minutes. Most fillers are formulated with a local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort.

If you would like to compliment your results with other injectables, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, these treatments can be performed during the same appointment.

You’ll likely notice some swelling and possible bruising that should subside in the next few days, and you’ll need to avoid putting excess pressure on your lips during this time. Other than that, you’ll be free to return to your normal routine.

How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?

Most lip fillers dissolve gradually over 6 to 12 months, but the lifespan of your lip filler results will depend on the specific product and how quickly your body naturally dissolves it. Touch-up appointments once or twice a year can extend your look indefinitely.

Can Lip Fillers Be Dissolved?

Yes. Fillers formulated with hyaluronic acid can be dissolved at any time with an injection of hyaluronidase, a natural enzyme that breaks down the gel. We offer a filler dissolving service for those who have a change of heart about their results. Once the hyaluronidase is injected, the filler typically dissolves within 48 hours.
