Lip fillers are a recent and effective type of lip enhancement used to restore or add the structure, volume, or shape of our lips. Lips do get thin as we age. Those who want to have fuller lips or lip shape correction, opt for lip fillers as it’s the safest and most affordable way of getting it.

There are a few other types of lip enhancement like lip implants and dermal fillers but these are more invasive than lip fillers and hence, lesser opted for.

1. What Are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers, also known as lip injections, are a type of non-surgical lip augmentation that makes the lips look fuller. There are different types of lip fillers that vary in thickness, and are used for different purposes.

If you want to keep the lip shape intact but just want it fuller, go for thin fillers. These lip fillers will take the shape of your lips. If you are looking to change the contour and structure of your lips, you should go for thicker ones. There are a few fillers that also target wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth.

2. Lip Fillers Treatment Procedure

This is a minimally-invasive procedure for lip rejuvenation that follows simple steps.

  • The lip filler procedure begins with applying a topical anesthesia to the lips which would start working after 15 minutes or so. This would numb your lips to make the process painless and most comfortable.
  • For those who are allergic to any of the ingredients used in topical anesthesia, a nerve block injection is given to them to make their lips numb.
  • A thin needle is used to inject the lip filler into the required part(s) of the lips, be it edges, corners, or Cupid’s bow. Generally, one ml of lip filler is inserted into the lips.
  • An ice pack is applied on the lips throughout the procedure just to avoid any swelling or bruising, which may take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  • Your healthcare provider will massage your lips to absorb the filler post-procedure.
  • After monitoring for 15-20 minutes and ensuring that you don’t face nausea, dizziness, or any other side effects, you are allowed to go home.
