Lip augmentation with dermal fillers is a minimally invasive treatment that enhances the volume and contour of the lips.1 Some of us are born with thin or poorly defined lips, while for others, aging has led to a loss of volume, hydration, and definition. Non-surgical dermal filler injections in the lips are ideal for those who don’t want to undergo surgical lip augmentation and can effectively sculpt beautiful and natural-looking lips

Which Dermal Fillers Are Used For Lip Enhancement?
Dermal fillers used for lip augmentation are composed of synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance produced naturally by the body.2 HA fillers commonly used in cosmetic treatments include Restylane, Juvederm, and Voluma. Juvederm and Restylane are typically used in lip augmentation, as they offer FDA-approved formulations for enhancing lips’ volume.
How Does Lip Augmentation With Dermal Fillers Work?
Lip enhancement with dermal filler is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment. During this minimally invasive procedure, a predetermined dermal filler best suited for the patient’s needs is injected in the lips to build volume, improve contour, and fill lines and wrinkles.

What To Expect During Your Lip Filler Treatment
During your lip augmentation procedure, a topical anesthetic will be applied by your provider to the lips followed by a disinfectant. Then the dermal filler will be injected according to your treatment plan to achieve your desired results.
Recovery After Lip Injections
Lip augmentation with dermal filler requires no recovery or rest period after treatment. Serious side effects are rare when an experienced provider performs lip injections; however, mild side effects to be expected are temporary swelling, redness, and bruising on and around the lips. Most patients typically see final results one week after lip enhancement injections with dermal filler.
