Introduction

If you’re interested in lip fillers, then you probably want to know how long their results last. The answer to that question depends on a variety of factors, including the type of filler used, your physiology, and how the filler is administered. 

Keep reading to learn more about lip fillers and how long the results of the procedure can last.

What is Lip Filler and What are its Benefits?

Lip filler is a type of dermal filler that is injected into the lips to improve their shape, volume, and symmetry. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Lip filler is made of a variety of materials, including hyaluronic acid.

Some of the benefits of lip filler include:

    • Improved lip shape and volume
    • Reduced lines and wrinkles around the mouth
    • A more youthful appearance
    • Added volume to the lower lip
    • A more pronounced cupid’s bow
    • Reduction of wrinkles and lines around the mouth

How Long Does Lip Filler Last?

The amount of time that lip filler lasts varies from person to person. In general, however, it tends to last for about 12 to 18 months. The filler is meant to be permanent, but the hyaluronic gel typically breaks down in your body over time. In general, it lasts longer if you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen.

Risks

There are a few risks associated with lip filler, the most common of which is bruising. You may also experience swelling or redness around the injection site. In very rare cases, you may experience an allergic reaction to the filler.

How Much Does Lip Filler Cost?

The average cost of lip filler treatment generally falls between $500 and $1,000. However, that price will depend on the location you visit, the practitioner you see, and the type of filler used on you.

Post-Treatment Care

Tips for post-treatment care include:

  • Avoid licking your lips excessively
  • Use a lip balm or moisturizer to keep your lips hydrated
  • Avoid smoking
  • If you experience any discomfort or swelling, apply a cold compress to the affected area
  • Expect to have your lips swollen for a few days after the procedure as the filler settles
