What are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are injections that add volume to your lips, using a specialty dermal filler. These are used by everyone but made more popular recently with celebrities and influencers who have been more open on their social channels with the non-surgical work they’ve had done.
Many dermal fillers can be injected into your lips and around your mouth. But the most common fillers today are products that contain hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It helps increase the volume of your lips.
You may have considered lip fillers but have been hesitant to take the plunge, and you’re not alone. Lip fillers are one of the most Googled nonsurgical treatments, with people searching for prices, recovery time, and before & afters at all times a day.
What are the Benefits of Lip Injections?
As one of the leading aesthetic rejuvenation clinics in the Fort Lauderdale area, we’ve seen many advantages to lip fillers, including:
- Lip injections are safe— there’s a low risk of complications or side effects.
- The treatment can boost your self-esteem.
- Add volume to your lips!
Who are the Best Candidates for Lip Injections?
You’re a good candidate for lip injections if you have thinning lips due to aging, fat loss, or genetics. Lip fillers can also help patients with “smokers lines” – those vertical lip wrinkles that occur due to smoking. You should be in good health and have realistic expectations for this treatment.
How Much Do I need?
Many patients ask how many syringes of filler they will need to obtain the look they want. This is an interesting question we get a lot. The short answer is, that it depends on your starting point. Look at the chart below. A person with lips with a score of 1 wishing to go up to a score of 4 would need more volume than going to a score of 2 or 3. Generally speaking, most patients do well with 1 or two syringes of filler. We specialize in natural look aesthetics with a goal of 1 to 1.6 between the volume of upper and lower lips as shown in the photo below.
What’s the First Step
The first step to getting lip fillers in the Fort Lauderdale or Miami area is to schedule a consultation. During your appointment, we’ll be able to further explain the treatment to you, answer questions, and provide our expert recommendations. If you’re comfortable with our insight, we’ll be able to provide the injections right there on the spot or schedule a time for you to come back.
What to Expect on the day of Lip Fillers?
We can perform lip injections quickly with no downtime in our office. Before the injections, a topical or local numbing agent may be applied to ease discomfort. Sometimes, nerve block injections can be given before the treatment to numb the lips completely. This is similar to the anesthetic injections you get at the dentist to numb your mouth. Holding ice to the lips before injections also helps numb the area and potentially helps with bruising and swelling.
After carefully marking the areas to be injected, very fine needles are used to inject the substance into your lips.
Lip Fillers Recovery
Following injection, we may give ice to ease discomfort and control swelling, but it would be best if you put no firm pressure on the treatment area.
Healing recovery time for your lip fillers will vary depending on each person and the type of filler injected. You can go about your daily activities from the moment you leave the building, but you should avoid strenuous exercise for the first 28-48 hours to calm the swelling and any bruising.
The recovery time is almost instant; you may feel a slight tingling at the injection site afterward.
Lipstick or other lip products are best avoided immediately after the procedure.
You should be able to notice a difference immediately. After you have healed, your lips should feel natural.

Lip Fillers FAQs
Are Lip Injections painful?
Typically, lip injections are fast and easy. Some patients feel minor discomfort or a slight pinch, but the pain is usually brief and manageable.
Of course, everyone’s body is different, and some people may experience more pain than others. The amount of filler injected can also affect how much pain you experience. If you’re worried about pain, numbing agents can be applied to the upper and bottom lip before the procedure.
How Long will they last?
The results are temporary, so you’ll need to have the procedure done a few times a year to maintain your plump lips.
