Lip Fillers Q & A

What are lip fillers?

Lip fillers are cosmetic injectables that go into your lips to make them look more full and shapely. The team at The Center for Aesthetics carefully plans your lip filler treatment and marks out the spots where they'll place the injections before they do. Then, they inject the filler with great care and attention to detail.

Lip fillers are viscous substances that retain some shape within your tissues, but they're not too stiff or firm. In fact, while the fillers are in place, they feel similar to your natural subdermal fat and tissue.

The team at The Center for Aesthetics makes sure they know exactly how you want your lips to look before injecting them with filler, and they consider what will look best for your natural face and lip shape.


How do lip fillers change the way my lips look?

When you get lip fillers, they give your lips a natural fullness. You can make some other minor alterations to your lips using fillers, too.

For example, if your lips are asymmetrical, the team at The Center for Aesthetics can use fillers to make them more symmetrical or proportionate in relation to each other.


How long do lip filler results last?

Most lip fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a gel-like substance that is safe to place in your skin because your body already produces it. Hyaluronic acid helps your tissues retain moisture and is present in areas of your body that need lubrication to function, like your eyes and joints.

Typically, hyaluronic acid fillers in the lips last for roughly 9-18 months. This can vary based on your body's tolerance and chemical makeup, but you can get follow-up filler injections whenever you need them at The Center for Aesthetics.


How should I care for my lips after lip fillers?

You can see results right away after getting lip fillers, but there might be some swelling that makes them look 20% larger than they'll be a few weeks later. To care for your lips after fillers, the team recommends:

  • Avoiding firm pressure on your lips at first
  • Using ice to soothe your lips
  • Avoiding lipstick
  • Avoiding lip balm and other products

Aside from these tips, you should be able to complete your day as usual right after you leave your lip filler appointment. The appointment only takes about 15 minutes, so you can schedule it during a lunch break if you have a particularly busy schedule.
