Lip Filler

Fuller lips continue to be on-trend, with many celebrities being more open than ever about receiving lip filler injections. In addition to creating a fuller appearance in the lips, fillers can also be used to address age-related volume loss and thinning, asymmetry, or other common concerns. While adding volume to the lips, fillers can also reduce lines and wrinkles around the area for patients concerned with signs of aging. Lip filler can be a suitable option for both the upper and lower lips, creating subtle and natural-looking or significant, glamorous results. At Lewisburg Plastic Surgery, we offer a range of lip filler options provided by our team of board-certified plastic surgeons and registered nurse injector.

Lip filler options

At Lewisburg Plastic Surgery, we offer various lip filler formulas from Juvéderm, a leading manufacturer of injectable cosmetic products. Each Juvéderm formula is carefully designed with specific purposes in mind. While all Juvéderm injectables use hyaluronic acid as their primary ingredient, the formula varies in consistency, offering slightly different results suited to patients’ unique needs and aesthetic goals. During a consultation, your expert injector will determine the best Juvéderm option for you.

Juvéderm Volbella XC

Juvéderm Volbella XC is intended to add more subtle volume to the lips. In addition to achieving natural lip filler results, it can be used to soften the appearance of lines around the lips, such as vertical lip lines or “smoker’s lines.”

Juvéderm Ultra XC

Juvéderm Ultra XC creates a fuller or plumper appearance in the lips for patients looking for a slightly more dramatic result than is typically achieved using Volbella XC. This product can also be used to correct moderate to severe parentheses lines around the mouth and nose for an overall more youthful look.

Lip filler injection process

Before receiving your lip filler injections, a brief consultation will take place to discuss your goals for the procedure and review your health history. You should avoid taking any blood-thinning and anti-inflammatory medications or supplements prior to receiving injections, including aspirin, St. John’s Wort, or Vitamin E.

Once a treatment plan has been determined, injections can begin. Often, patients will receive a topical numbing agent to maintain comfort during injections. However, this is not always necessary, as Juvéderm products contain lidocaine within their formulas. The lip filler is administered in a series of injections using a very fine needle. On average, the treatment can be completed in as little as 30 minutes.

After lip filler injections

Following lip filler injections, results are immediately noticeable. No downtime is required after injections, meaning that patients can immediately return to their normal routines. However, some side effects are common. These can include redness, swelling, some sensitivity or tenderness, and occasional bruising. Your injector will provide you with specific aftercare instructions.

Juvéderm injections are not permanent. Over time, the body will naturally and safely metabolize the product. However, results are long-lasting, with most lip filler patients enjoying the appearance of fuller lips for six months to two years. Maintenance injections can be scheduled to keep up your results over time.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is JUVÉDERM®? 

    JUVÉDERM® is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the U.S. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers adds volume to a different area of the face—without surgery. All JUVÉDERM® fillers are smooth, crystal-clear gels that are administered by injection in your aesthetic healthcare provider’s office.

  • What is hyaluronic acid? 

    The JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers is made from a modified form of HA.

  • What is the treatment experience like? 

    Your provider will take your medical history and provide a facial analysis. Be prepared to discuss your areas of concern. This is not a surgical treatment. Actual treatment can take 15 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on which area of your face is being treated.

  • Does it hurt? 

    The amount of discomfort depends on the sensitivity of the patient’s skin. Sometimes a topical anesthetic is used to dull the pain or ice to help further minimize discomfort. JUVÉDERM® injectable gels labeled with “XC” contain pain-reducing lidocaine to help manage pain or discomfort during the injection.
