What Are Lip Injections?
Lip injections are cosmetic procedures that fill and plump your lips while smoothing out your wrinkles and making your lips fuller. The procedure for lip injections can be done with dermal fillers or a natural fat transfer.
Lip fillers are typically composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body. These hyaluronic acid fillers will help change the shape of your lips, as well as their volume and structure. It is essential to understand that these fillers will not harm your body, and will be absorbed back into the body over time.
At Vida & Co, we understand how the procedure for lip injections works and what type of filler will produce the best results for your needs. Whether you want to add volume, define a deflated upper lip, plump up both lips, or restore and enhance volume, we are here for you.
The Benefits of Lip Fillers
Many famous people use lip fillers for their cosmetic and aesthetic benefits. There is no secret that people use lip fillers to enhance their lips because fuller lips are considered to be more aesthetically pleasing. However, there are other benefits you should consider, such as:
- Lip fillers can be customized to each person, creating any lip shape by adjusting the number of dermal filler injections.
- Lip fillers are not permanent, so they can be reduced over time by being absorbed back into the body.
- They can be used to even out uneven or mismatched lips.
- They can reduce the wrinkles that appear with age, making the mouth area fuller with fewer wrinkles.
- Lip fillers will help improve the appearance of your lips and balance the surrounding area of the face.
- They help you boost your self-confidence.
Our professionals will offer their expertise to help you decide the perfect option for your lip augmentation, depending on your skin type and lip shape.
What Are the Most Common Injectables for Lips?
The most common lip filler injections are the Restylane and Juvederm line of fillers. Both are hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that have shown great results, but they are not one-size-fits-all. That is why we will consider all the options of fillers to know what filler is suitable for your lips. To do so, our professionals will consider the following factors:
- The injection location on the lips (they can be on the edges or the lip body)
- Your desired lip volume and your current lip volume
- The stiffness required to achieve your desired look
- The costs of filler, as that may impact your choice.
Restylane Dermal Filler
This type of dermal filler is commonly used for decreasing lip lines and creating plumper lips. Restylane dermal fillers are approved by the FDA and are used to decrease lines and wrinkles. Restylane is proven to be safe for any lip enhancement procedure. That cosmetic procedure usually lasts about 20 to 30 minutes, and the results will be seen immediately, lasting for up to one year before another lip filler procedure is needed.
Juvederm Dermal Filler
Juvederm has a large variety of products, with some used to smooth out lines and wrinkles around the lips, while others contain lidocaine that plumps up lip volume. Juvederm treatments also last 20 to 30 minutes, but the results are immediate and constantly improve over the next several days. These dermal fillers can last up to one year before another lip injection is needed.
Additionally, there are two types of lip fillers, temporary and permanent.
The most popular choice is the temporary dermal fillers because they can be reversible. Suppose you don’t like the look of your lips after a dermal filler treatment. In such a case, you can have an eraser enzyme, hyaluronidase, injected to disperse the fillers and speed up the procedure of breaking them down. Of course, permanent dermal fillers are not reversible.
At Vida & Co Miami, FL, we offer both permanent and temporary lip fillers, so you can keep your skin hydrated, plump, and elastic for as long as you want.
What You Should Expect During a Lip Filler Procedure
The lip augmentation procedure largely depends on the method used. Lip injections are simply injected into your lips, and then the procedure is complete. They are typically comfortable, but a topical anesthetic is sometimes applied to minimize discomfort. A numbing cream can also be put on your lips so you won’t feel any pain during the lip injections. After 20 to 30 minutes, the numbing cream will be removed, and your lips will be cleaned. It is recommended you apply ice once you get home to prevent swelling and bruising. If injected into your skin, dermal fillers will diminish the wrinkles, creases, fine lines, or other signs of the aging process.
When it comes to fat transfer, the procedure is a bit longer. The fat transfer firstly requires fat to be harvested from another area of your body via liposuction. The fat will then be purified using a centrifuge and injected into your lips.
Our team will work closely with you to ensure a comfortable and rewarding procedure and that you will be happy with the results.

FAQs About Lip Injections
You may encounter an allergic reaction when it comes to lip injections, such as swelling and minor bruising. It is recommended you keep ice on various parts of your lips to prevent that from happening. You can also take ibuprofen or acetaminophen for discomfort. Consider keeping your lips hydrated with vitamin E oil for the first few days following the lip enhancement procedure, as well as using only a gentle cleanser.
However, there is no need to be alarmed as such side effects are completely normal. Both the bruising and swelling should lessen by day two after the lip injections.
That depends on your type of lips and lip line. If you have naturally thin lips, you may need to take a few sessions to achieve the alluring lips you desire.
If you are looking for some dramatic results, you can ask for a combination of a dermal filler with botulinum toxin (aka Botox).
No, lip injections typically require no downtime. You can return to your normal activities immediately. While some bruising or swelling may appear after treatment, there is no need to worry as they won’t interfere with your daily activities.
The costs for dermal fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm range from $400 to $1,300, with an average cost of $750. They are typically priced by the syringe.
