What You Need to Know Before Getting Lip Fillers

February 22, 2024

In 2024, the odds of you knowing someone (or a celebrity) with lip filler are high. Seemingly overnight, the lip treatment, lip neuromodualtors has become just as common as getting laser hair removal. Fascination with plump, full lips is nothing new, but more and more people have taken an interest in lip fillers instead of overlining or using lip-plumping gloss.

But don’t be fooled into thinking this is an easy-breezy procedure—quite the opposite. Having work done on the lips is one of the most complicated noninvasive facial enhancements a person can get, especially for the growing contingent demanding a natural-looking tweak.

Is filler good for your lips?

While lip fillers have become synonymous with pumping up the volume, they come with several other benefits.

  • Even out asymmetrical lip shapes
  • Adds natural fullness to desired areas
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines on the lips and surrounding mouth area
  • Customizable based on needs and desires

How long do lip fillers last?

The results of lip filler injections are usually temporary, lasting for 4-6 months before the filler is broken down and absorbed by the body. How long lip fillers last depends on several factors, including the type of filler used, the area injected, and the patient’s age and metabolism. Still, most people can expect their enhanced look to last for several months before a top-up treatment is required. Learn more about injectables.

How painful is lip filler?

Now, we must remember that this is an injectable treatment, and therefore, sensation will be felt from the entry point of the injection. But having said that, our patients report an increasingly comfortable experience with repeated treatments.

The filler itself is not painful while being administered, but some patients may find the initial injection entry quite uncomfortable, as the lips are a very sensitive area.

Also, some parts of the lip may be more sensitive than others for some patients. While it may feel quite touchy to receive the filler in the cupid’s bow, for example, the same person may find the filler being placed in the bottom lip very tolerable, and so on.

Our practitioners are masters at providing the most comfortable experience to our patients and are extremely experienced and educated in how to administer treatments with efficiency, causing you the least amount of discomfort possible, and making the procedure quick and easy to receive.

At Vancouver Laser – The best skincare clinic in Vancouver, we are highly conscious of the aftereffects caused by the delivery of injectables, such as bruising, and are incredibly skilled at administering treatments in such a way as to avoid this altogether where possible.

While some clinics may use multiple injection points to achieve a certain look, which can be quite uncomfortable to endure, our doctors and cosmetic injectors are highly capable of creating beautiful results with minimal injection points where possible, making your procedure experience a breeze.

Can you feel lip fillers when kissing?

When it comes to the sensation of kissing with lip fillers, there’s a spectrum of experiences. The feel can vary depending on the type of filler used, the amount injected, and the technique of the practitioner. At Vancouver Laser, we pride ourselves on using techniques that aim for a natural feel, ensuring that any changes in the sensation of kissing are minimal. The goal is to enhance your lips in a way that feels as natural as possible, both to you and to anyone you might be kissing.

Many recipients of lip fillers report that once the initial swelling subsides, their lips feel normal, and their partners do not notice a significant difference. However, it’s important to set realistic expectations and acknowledge that there will be a brief period immediately following the procedure when the lips may feel different due to swelling.
