As we age, our lips and the surrounding area tend to lose their supple and defined structure. Enter lip fillers: science’s answer to restoring some of that volume and shape, or simply adding some enhancement without surgery.

What is the best lip filler for you? Viva Day Spa offers FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler products from Juvederm and Restylane, specifically recommended for lip injections, at our med spas in Austin. You and your aesthetic medical injector will create a treatment plan that helps you achieve your ideal lip shape and plumpness level for an incredibly natural-looking pout.

How Do Lip Fillers Work?

Lip augmentation is most commonly performed using hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance found in the body. These HA lip fillers are smooth, gel-like formulas that are injected into the lips to plump, define, and correct lip shape.

 

Types of Lip Filler

After Botox, hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are still the most popular choice of injectable treatments. HA lip injections have been proven to be safer and provide more immediate results compared to collagen fillers.

The top lip filler brands are from Juvederm (the maker of Botox) and Restylane (the maker of Dysport). Viva Day Spa + Med Spa offers the following FDA-approved lip filler products:

Juvéderm Lip Fillers

Juvederm’s family of dermal fillers includes specific products to restore volume to the cheeks, balance your profile, and add volume/definition to your lips.

Want to boost your lips with natural-looking fullness and definition? Juvederm Ultra XC is your go-to for doing just that. This powerhouse filler smooths out vertical lip lines and adds volume to the lips for a hydrated, luscious look.

Juvederm Volbella XC is an ideal lip filler for beginners looking for a subtle change. It’s known for smoothing and softening vertical lip lines, as well as adding a slight plump — rather than volume — for mild, natural-looking enhancement.

Restylane Lip Fillers

Restylane also offers a family of dermal filler products for the face, including the lips. Restylane Kysse is the newest lip filler to hit the market and was uniquely designed to add fullness to the lips and help smooth out wrinkles above the mouth. This lip injection delivers a pillowy, softer lip with more natural expression of motion than other alternatives.

Benefits of Lip Filler Injections

Lip augmentation is most commonly thought of as a treatment to plump your lips. However, lip filler has a number of other benefits.

  • Balances asymmetrical lip shapes
  • Adds natural fullness
  • Smoothes out fine lines around the mouth
  • Accentuates the border of your lips
  • Enhances the cupid’s bow (the “M” part of your mid-upper lip)
  • Reduces vertical lip lines (smoker’s lines)

    What Can I Expect During My Lip Filler Treatment?

    One of the best things about lip filler — besides enhancing the look of your gorgeous new pout — is that the procedure is super quick and minimally invasive. During the treatment, your Viva Day Spa + Med Spa cosmetic injector will apply a topical anesthetic (Lidocaine) to numb any slight discomfort you may otherwise feel. Next, they will use ultra fine needles to administer the lip filler of your choice into the target areas. 

    When Will I See Results?

    You will see immediate results with lip fillers. It typically takes about 4 weeks for the filler to settle in and achieve the final, desired look.

    How Long Do Results Last?

    Lip filler is not permanent and results typically last one year. All of the lip filler products at Viva Day Spa + Med Spa are FDA approved for up to 12 months.

    How Lip Filler Syringes Will I Need?

    A natural looking lip enhancement typically requires only one syringe of Restylane or Juvederm. One syringe is equal to 1ml of product or 1/5th of a teaspoon. For a fuller look, many patients will add a second syringe a few months after their initial treatment to gradually enhance the size of their lips.

    How Much Does Lip Filler Cost?

    Sold by the syringe, lip fillers cost anywhere from $450 to $850 in Austin at Viva Day Spa + Med Spa, depending on which product is best for you.

     

     

    Lip Filler FAQs

    Does Lip Filler Hurt?

    Your aesthetic injector will use ultra fine needles to administer lip filler into the target areas. All fillers contain Lidocaine (an anesthetic) that numbs the area to ensure minimal discomfort. The treatment is performed in just minutes, with minimal downtime or recovery.

    Lip Filler After Care

    How should you take care of your lips after injections? Immediately after your treatment, you can return to all your normal activities, including walking and light exercise. Here are Viva’s lip filler aftercare instructions:

    • Apply ice to your lips to your lips using a clean ice pack to help with swelling and any discomfort.
    • Avoid makeup or lip products for at least 24 hours.
    • Sleep with your head elevated on two pillows to help reduce swelling.
    • Avoid alcohol and blood thinners for the next 24 hours if you have bruising.
    • Do not massage or press on the lips for at least a week.
    • Avoid strenuous exercise for two days. Elevated blood pressure may make swelling worse.
    • Drink plenty of water to to help your body heal.

     

    Potential Side Effects After Lip Filler

    Immediately after the procedure, you will most likely experience redness, swelling, and tenderness. Bruising is also possible. All of these minor side effects are completely normal parts of the lip filler healing process. Swelling  should only last between 24 and 48 hours.

     

    How Long Does It Take Lip Fillers To Heal?

    Swelling after lip filler usually only lasts 24-48 hours. Your lips may be tender for 1-2 weeks after your injections. It takes about 4 weeks to achieve your final, desired results.

    Can You Get Lip Fillers During Pregnancy?

    Pregnant women should not get lip filler. There is no definitive evidence on the risks of lip fillers during pregnancy. That’s why doctors agree that is safer to wait until after pregnancy and breastfeeding for lip injections.

    How Safe Is Lip Filler?

    Lip fillers/injections are very safe when performed correctly. At Viva Day Spa + Med Spa, lip injections are exclusively provided by medical director and plastic surgeon Dr. Aisha White, or by a mid-level aesthetic Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant injector. Also, lip filler products from Juvederm and Restylane are all FDA-approved. During your initial consultation, they will always go over your medical history, as well as all potential risks and safety precautions, before beginning any procedure.

    Potential Risks

    Lip filler injection is commonly referred to as a “lunchtime procedure” because it’s so quick and non-invasive. However, it is still a medical procedure, and all medical procedures can carry potential risk, no matter how rare. Lip augmentation carries the risk associated with needle use, including bruising, bleeding, and, in very extreme cases, infection, allergic reaction, or blood vessel blockage.
