WHY ARE LIP FILLERS SO POPULAR IN NEW YORK?
Injectable lip enhancements have significantly grown in popularity over the past decade due to a variety of factors (1). Lip fillers become generally normalized due to the openness and transparency offered by social media and some of the world’s favorite celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner. However, they also offer a number of undeniable aesthetic benefits to various populations including:
- Added volume
Some patients naturally have thin lips and get lip fillers to enhance the shape of their lips, for a fuller, more voluptuous pout.
With age and gravity, the natural production of collagen and hyaluronic acids slows down resulting in loss of volume and hydration in the lips. This volume and hydration can be restored with hyaluronic acid based lip fillers to rejuvenate and enhance the mouth area.
No one is perfectly symmetrical. In some cases there is significant unevenness in the lips, which can be balanced out using dermal fillers.
- Smoothing facial wrinkles
Lip fillers are commonly used around the lips to treat perioral lines, also known as smoker’s lines.
HOW DO LIP FILLERS WORK?
Lip fillers are injected using one of many soft tissue fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, RHA, Revanesse and others to add volume and shape to the lips (2).
The following series of steps make up a lip filler treatment:
- The lips are sanitized and numbed with topical lidocaine gel to minimize pain and discomfort;
- After carefully mapping out the injection territory a selected facial hyaluronic acid fillers is injected using a small hollow needle (15 mm, 30 Gauge) into various regions of the lip:
- Vermillion border (edges of the lips)
- Body of the lip
- Cupid’s bow (center of the upper lip)
- Oral commissures (corners of the mouth)
- After the injections are complete the lips are gently massaged to make sure the filler spreads evenly without visible lumps and settles evenly.
The average amount of filler used during one treatment is 1 syringe, which contain 1 mL of product. Hyaluronic acid gel droplets are hydrophilic meaning that they attract water molecules and expand like a sponge. This biomechanical property of the lip filler is what creates volume and definition in the injected area.
The initial intense swelling which is observed within the first 24 hours of lip injections is secondary to the above described inflammatory process, and subsides in the next 1-2 days decreasing the volume by 25-30% and resulting in the final appearance of the lips.
Lip filler results may last anywhere from 6- 12 months, as the filler gradually is metabolized and secreted by the body.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LIP FILLER?
The ideal candidate for a lip filler is an overall healthy patient who would like to make adjustments to the size, shape, or overall appearance of their lips.
A good candidate for a lip filler meets the following criteria:
- Is in good physical health;
- Has realistic expectations;
- Wants to enhance the size and shape of the upper and lower lip;
- Wants to even out asymmetry of the lips;
- Wants to rejuvenate and restore volume in deflated and dehydrated lips, which can be caused by aging, genetics, smoking and sun damage;
- Wants to enhance the intercommissural distance of the mouth;
- Wants to eliminate perioral lines (smoker’s lines) and wrinkles around the mouth;
- Wants to augment their philtrum column or cupid’s bow.
You should refrain from getting a lip filler if:
- You are pregnant;
- You have an active oral infection, such as canker sores or cold sores;
- You have a tendency to allergic reactions;
- You have a personal hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY LIP FILLER?
A lip filler does not require much planning. However, there are some things you can do to prepare for your lip filler procedure to optimize your results and to make the injections as enjoyable and restful as possible.
- Consultation – Be sure to schedule a consultation before your actual procedure, to confirm that you are comfortable with your provider, and are able to discuss all important details regarding your treatment.
- Photos – Look up photos of lips that you like for your injector to use as a reference.
- Schedule appropriately – If you have a special event coming up, be sure to schedule your lip filler at least two weeks in advance, in case of swelling and bruising.
- Numbing cream – Confirm with your injector that they provide numbing cream at the clinic. If not, you can buy your own at any pharmacy to make the injection process more comfortable.
- Blood thinners – Stop taking blood thinners such as aspirin, ibuprofen, excedrin, motrin, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, flax oil, cod liver oil, fish oil, vitamin A, and vitamin E, to prevent you from excessive bruising. You should also avoid herbal supplements.
- Alcohol – Avoid alcohol 3-5 days prior to your treatment to avoid making bruising and swelling worse.
- Cold sores – Let your doctor know if you have cold sores, and take Valtrex one day prior to avoid exacerbation during the injection process.
WHAT IS A LIP FILLER PROCEDURE LIKE?
A lip filler is a common minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that does not involve the pre- and post-planning of a surgery.
The process of your lip filler will involve the following steps:
During your consultation you will have the opportunity to discuss important details regarding your treatment with Dr. Schwarzburg, who has a critical eye and the expertise to determine which technique and dermal filler will best suit your individual needs. At this time you will go over:
- Overall treatment goals
- Your questions and concerns
- Your medical history to confirm that you are a good candidate for a lip filler
At your consultation, pretreatment photos will be taken to use in the future to compare your results to your starting point. During the consultation process you should ask your provider about their qualifications, the number of lip filler procedures performed and any potential risks you should be expecting.
Once a confirmed candidate, you will move forward with your treatment, which may be performed on that same day, or at a future appointment.
The following steps will be taken at your scheduled lip filler appointment to achieve your desired results:
- A makeup remover to wipe off lipstick or any residue.
- A topical numbing cream is applied to your lips and left on for 15 – 20 minutes to prevent discomfort during the injection process. Most numbing creams contain benzocaine, lidocaine and tetracaine.
- Once numb, the numbing cream is removed and the lips are sanitized before injection.
- The lips are injected with a hyaluronic acid filler either through a small hollow needle or a blunt cannula utilizing a retrograde serial puncture technique. The Russian lip technique is one of the more popular techniques, resulting in a more natural and flattering look.
- The injection process typically takes approximately 20 minutes.
- Once complete, the treatment area is sanitized and you will be provided with an ice pack to reduce swelling and bruising.
- You will then be sent home and will be advised to avoid rubbing or touching your lips to avoid migration, and to refrain from exercise to reduce the chances of excessive swelling and bruising.
- On the following day, you may apply a warm compress, should there be any signs of hematomas.
- You will see immediate results; however, keep in mind that the final results manifest once the swelling and bruising subsides (within 1 – 4 days).
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
A lip filler may take anywhere from 15 – 30 minutes, depending on how many syringes are used and whether you need to take breaks in between.
ARE THERE ANY RISKS AND SIDE EFFECTS?
Lip fillers are a safe and very frequently performed cosmetic treatment. Nevertheless, just as any medical treatment, there are some possible risks and side effects.
Commonly Expected Side effects:
- Swelling (1 – 3 days)
- Bruising (1 – 4 days)
- Bleeding at injection site (can persist up to 20 minutes after treatment)
- Skin irritation (due to swelling your lips may become dry for a few days)
- Discoloration and tenderness (on the first day)
- Cold sore reactivation
Keep in mind that when swollen, your lips can look disproportionately large and asymmetrical, however, this is normal and is due to an inflammatory response, which just like most other minor side effects eventually subsides.
- Infection (you will be prescribed antibiotics)
- Formation of small nodules, knots, and lumps (can be massaged out or dissolved)
- Skin necrosis or tissue death (vascular compromise) if filler is injected into or around an artery
- Asymmetry (one side may be larger than the other)
All of the above can happen, even when performed by an experienced physician. However, the difference between an experienced board certified plastic surgeon and an inexperienced or unqualified injector is their ability to safely handle these risks and side effects.
When to call your doctor:
Bruising and swelling are the most common side effects and won’t require a follow-up appointment. If you do have any concerns about your filler having migrated, are feeling lumps and bumps inside your lips, or are experiencing any of the complications mentioned above, call your doctor’s office to schedule an appointment for your doctor to make all the necessary adjustments.
HOW CAN I AVOID COMPLICATIONS AFTER A LIP FILLER?
The best way to avoid complications after a lip filler is to make sure that whoever is injecting you checks off the following boxes:
- Expert in cosmetic medicine
- Board certified physician
- Advanced training
- Several years of experience
- Proven track record of successful patient outcomes
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME AFTER A LIP FILLER?
After a lip filler there is minor social and medical downtime. While you are free to go out and are not on bed rest, do keep in mind that bruising and swelling can persist for up to 3 days, which may prevent some people from social interactions until fully healed.
You will also be advised to take all necessary post-care steps, until all side effects have resolved.
WHAT IS THE AFTERCARE FOR LIP FILLERS?
After your lip filler you may experience some minor side effects. In order to reduce these side effects and prevent filler migration, you will be advised to take the following precautionary measures:
- Apply ice immediately after your treatment and throughout the first day. This will reduce swelling, bruising, and pain.
- Avoid heat, such as steam rooms, saunas, and hot water for 48 hrs, and keep your head elevated since heat can increase swelling.
- Apply aloe vera, vitamin K, and arnica creams to improve bruising.
- Refrain from touching or puckering, kissing, sipping from straw, or smoking to prevent your filler from migrating.
- Wait 30 minutes before applying lipstick, and avoid makeup for the first hour to keep the lips clean.
- Drink plenty of water and limit sodium to reduce swelling.
- Avoid alcohol on the first day to prevent excessive swelling.
- Avoid strenuous exercise for 1 – 2 days, as elevated blood pressure and heart rate can make swelling and bruising worse.
- Apply a warm compress day 2 to reduce bruising.
- Ask your doctor what kinds of medications you can take. Tylenol is usually okay, but blood-thinning medications and NSAIDs should be avoided.
HOW MUCH DO LIP FILLERS COST?
The lip filler cost typically ranges $800 – $1400, but varies depending on a variety of factors including:
- Type of filler used
Some fillers are higher in price due to their unique composition and quality.
- Amount of filler injected
A full syringe can cost anywhere from $800 to $1400. However, some places offer package deals in which the price is reduced if a patient purchases several fillers or other treatments.
- Injection technique
There are a variety of injection techniques that can be used to achieve a specific look. Most injectors use the same technique on each patient, resulting in mixed outcomes. Dr. Schwarzburg has an exceptional skill set that allows him to perform a variety of techniques based on each individual patient’s anatomy and desired outcome.
- Geographical location of the practice
Filler prices are typically higher in larger cities, such as NYC lip fillers, than in more rural areas.
- Skill, experience level, and title of your injector
Finding an injector that has the experience and skill to provide the best possible results can be incredibly challenging. The best injectors are those who possess extensive knowledge on human anatomy and medicine, are board certified doctors, and are up to date on scientific literature and findings. Based on this extraordinary level of expertise, doctors will likely charge more than a registered nurse.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF LIP FILLERS?
Lip fillers are used to shape and plump the lips. When they were first invented, liquid silicone was used to enlarge the lips until 1991, when the FDA banned the use of liquid silicone as an injectable cosmetic filler.
Today, the primary ingredients used in different dermal filler products include the following:
- Hyaluronic acid (HA)
- Calcium Hydroxylapatite
- Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA)
- Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)
For lip fillers, hyaluronic based dermal fillers are most commonly used, due to the large variety of hyaluronic lip products and formulations available, as well as the fact that hyaluronic acids are dissolvable and fully reversible. Hyaluronic acid is also a natural substance, and because hyaluronic acid fillers are hydrophilic, they often increase volume by absorbing water molecules surrounding the injection site, expanding the treatment area as a result.
The most popular Hyaluronic acid based fillers used in the lips are:
WHAT PROCEDURES COMPLEMENT LIP INJECTIONS?
Lip injections can be combined with a variety of medical procedures for an overall transformative result.
- Botox – Botox can be injected right above the lip to create a lip flip, which is a minor enhancement to the upper lip. This is especially popular amongst younger patients.
- Jawline contouring – Jawline contouring including jawline filler, chin filler, and PDO threads is often combined with a lip filler to shape and enhance the overall lower face.
- Under eye filler – Tired and hollow under eyes are often the result of age related volume loss. Many patients combine under eye filler with their lip filler to rejuvenate the entire face.
- Cheek filler – Cheek filler is often used to rejuvenate the face along with lip filler.
- Non-surgical rhinoplasty – With a beautifully plump lip comes a nicely contoured nose, when patients decide to combine their lip filler with a liquid rhinoplasty.
- Skin treatments – As we age our lips lose volume and often develop small facial wrinkles or smoker’s lines around the edges. Lip filler can address these vertical lines, though many patients enhance this result with the addition of collagen inducing treatments such as Fraxel laser and Secret RF.
WHAT IS A LIP FLIP?
A lip flip is a minor lip enhancement using 5 – 10 units of Botox and injected into the orbicularis oris muscle, located around the lip. As this relaxes the muscle, the lip is no longer pulled down, and slightly flips upward.
ARE THERE LIP FILLER ALTERNATIVES?
Many people try to find needle free alternatives to lip fillers, such as the hyaluron pen. Unfortunately, these alternatives can not only be dangerous and harmful, but will also never compare to the results of a traditional lip filler.
Safe alternatives to lip filler for minor lip enhancements include:
- Lip flips – 5 – 10 units of Botox injected into the upper lip, slightly lifting it upward
- Lip plumping balms – temporarily cause minor irritation to the lips to enlarge them
HOW MUCH FILLER AM I GETTING?
The average amount of filler used in one session is 1ml, which is approximately a quarter of a teaspoon. In some cases, 0.5ml of filler is used for a more subtle result, while in other cases a patient may want 1-3 ml depending on the look they are attempting to achieve.
WHICH IS THE BEST LIP FILLER?
Because everyone’s facial anatomy and lip structure is different, there is no single filler that is universally better than the others.
Instead, Dr. Schwarzburg takes each individual patient’s goals, medical history, and anatomy into consideration when deciding on the appropriate filler.
The primary factors in which fillers differ from one another include:
- The degree of hydration of the gel itself determines how much the filler will expand once injected. Some fillers, such as Juvederm Volbella, Restylane Silk, Restylane Kysse, Belotero, and RHA contain gel molecules that are already fully hydrated, meaning that they cannot absorb any more water upon injection. Others, including Juvederm Voluma and Ultra, Revanesse, and Restylane are only partially hydrated, meaning that dehydrated gel molecules will expand upon injection, as they absorb the water surrounding the injection site.
- The density, also called G-prime, defines the viscoelastic properties and elasticity of the fillers and how they maintain their shape. Fillers such as Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft have a high G-prime, meaning that they are firmer and ideal to define, maintain, and enhance the shape of thinning lips. A filler with a lower G-prime is softer and more subtle.
In some cases, patients simply do not respond particularly well to fillers due to a speedy metabolism or minimal interstitial space, meaning that the lips are very dense, leaving little room for a filler to expand their size.
WILL A NEEDLE OR CANNULA BE USED FOR MY LIP FILLER?
Needles offer absolute precision, while cannulas with a blunt tip are less likely to cause trauma and bruising, and are more commonly used to treat larger areas at a selected depth. Dr. Schwarzburg typically uses a an ultra fine needle to inject lips, due to its accuracy. However, this is decided and based on each individual case.
DO LIP INJECTIONS HURT?
Lip injections can be unpleasant at times since the lips are a very sensitive area to inject. The process has been described as a pinching, stinging feeling.
To make the injection process more comfortable, Dr. Schwarzburg will apply a strong lidocaine rich numbing cream 15 – 30 minutes before your treatment. Some patients also apply an ice pack before the treatment for additional numbing. In addition, almost all dermal fillers contain lidocaine mixed in the gel itselt, making them generally less painful.
WHEN WILL I SEE MY RESULTS?
Your lip filler results are immediate, meaning that increased volume is apparent right after the injection process. However, because there will be bruising and swelling, your final results (unaltered by swelling and bruising) can be observed within 3 – 7 days, once your lips are fully healed and settled.
HOW LONG WILL MY LIP INJECTION RESULTS LAST?
Your lip fillers will last anywhere from 6 – 12 months, depending on the type of filler and how much is used, as well as your individual response to the filler.
ARE LIP FILLERS PERMANENT?
Lip fillers are not permanent and can last up to 12 months. While some injectors still use liquid silicone for permanent results, it is highly frowned upon and incredibly rare, due to all the risks involved in cosmetic silicone injections.
CAN I DISSOLVE MY FILLER?
Hyaluronic acid fillers can be dissolved using hyaluronidase, a reversal agent for hyaluronic acid, breaking it down immediately upon injection.
Common brands of hyaluronidase used include:
WHAT WILL MY LIP FILLER BEFORE AND AFTER RESULTS LOOK LIKE?
Before your lip filler your lips may be:
- Lacking shape
After your lip filler your lips will look:
- More youthful and hydrated
- Shapely and defined
CAN I WEAR LIPSTICK AFTER LIP INJECTIONS?
Immediately after injection, your lips essentially have several tiny puncture wounds. Because they are small, they heal and close up quickly; however, just to keep the area clean, you should refrain from wearing lipstick for the first 30 – 60 minutes after your lip filler treatment.
WILL I BRUISE AFTER?
Bruising is one of the main associated effects secondary to needle puncturing small blood vessels as the the filler is being injected. While not everyone bruises, there is no way to predict whether or not you personally will bruise until after your treatment.
WHEN CAN I EAT AND DRINK AFTER MY LIP FILLER
You can eat and drink immediately after your lip filler, however, avoid sipping on straws and taking large bites of food for 2 – 3 days, as this can tense, and stretch the mouth, leaving the potential for filler migration.
I HAVE TOO MUCH SWELLING AND MY LIPS LOOK DUCKY, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Swelling is completely normal after a lip filler and typically subsides within 3 days. However, there are some cases in which a filler has been injected above the vermilion border (the border between your lips and surrounding skin) by an inexperienced or unqualified injector. If this is the case, you will have to get the filler dissolved to avoid the “ducky” look instead of a nice lip fullness.
If the filler has simply migrated, it can also be dissolved and reinjected.
WILL LIP FILLER RUIN MY LIPS?
Generally if injected properly a lip filler will not ruin your lips. However, if you are injected by someone who doesn’t know what they are doing, you risk infection, lumps, permanent scarring, and deformation of your lips. This is why it is incredibly important to research your injector and avoid such complications at all costs. Dr. Schwarzburg also takes a “less is more” approach to lip fillers, starting with a small or average amount, and adding more filler later on if needed for fuller lips.
IS LIP FILLER COVERED BY INSURANCE?
Because lip filler injections are not medically necessary and strictly cosmetic, they are not covered by insurance.
DO LIP INJECTIONS WORK?
Yes, lip injections are food and drug administration (FDA) approved as a safe and effective minimally invasive treatment to enhance the size and shape of the lips. Provided that your injections are performed by a board certified cosmetic surgeon, with the necessary skill set to accomplish optimal results, lip fillers work as a great way to get the voluptuous lips you’ve always wanted.
CAN YOU GET LIP FILLER WHILE PREGNANT?
Dermal fillers have not been clinically tested on pregnant women. While there is no scientific evidence of a negative correlation between fillers and pregnancy, the FDA has not approved the use of lip fillers while pregnant.
DO MEN GET LIP FILLERS?
Yes, many men get lip filler. While lip filler is often associated with the female desire to have fuller, poutier lips, loss of volume and hydration caused by aging does not exclusively apply to women and is just as common in men. In fact, statistics indicate that men make up 20% of minimally invasive cosmetic treatment patients.
ARE LIP FILLERS SAFE?
Lip fillers are clinically proven and FDA approved to be a safe option to enhance the lips and require no plastic surgery. Always make sure that you know what product is being injected, and that your injector is a board certified physician, to confirm that you are avoiding the dangers of black market products, which on the other hand, can result in complications.
WHAT ARE THE PROS AND CONS OF LIP FILLER?
- FDA approved
- Minimally invasive and non surgical
- Minimal risks, side effects, and downtime
- Improves the natural fullness and shape of the lip
- Not permanent
- Longevity of results may vary
- May require more than one syringe for optimal results
WHAT ARE SOME THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND?
- Do extensive research on your injector to make sure that they are board certified and experienced in injectables
- Swelling can last up to a week. This is normal and will subside.
- Some fillers are known to swell up more than others. Ask your doctor about which one is right for you.
- If you see a lip filler deal that looks too good to be true, it probably is. Make sure that you are getting true hyaluronic acid based fillers.
A lip filler is a minimally invasive injectable treatment to enhance the size and lip shape. A variety of hyaluronic acid based fillers can be used to create your desired outcome, based on your individual lip shape and facial anatomy. While there are some associated possible risks and side effects, they are usually temporary and can be reversed if necessary, with minimal downtime.
