What Are The Different Types of Lip Fillers?

Imagining yourself with fuller, more luscious lips? It’s not just you – the popularity of lip fillers has only grown since 2020 with people seeking a more youthful look, increased facial symmetry, and their desired lip shape. But before you book that appointment, let’s chat about the types of lip fillers out there and what you can expect from each of them.

Benefits of Lip Fillers

Common benefits of lip fillers include increased lip volume and fullness, improved lip shape and facial symmetry, and reduced fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.

People who get lip filler treatment enjoy increased self-confidence, minimal downtime from this non-invasive treatment, and the capability of HA fillers to deliver precise, personalized results.

Exploring Different Types of Lip Fillers

Lip fillers are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that effectively enhance the fullness and contour of the lips. Various types of lip fillers are available, each with its unique benefits and uses.

Hyaluronic acid fillers, or HA fillers, are the type of filler used to treat the lips. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to keep skin hydrated and plump. When used in lip fillers, it can help add volume, smooth out wrinkles, and shape the lips. HA fillers are considered safe and effective, with minimal side effects or risk of allergic reactions.

Two of the most popular lip fillers include Revanesse® Lips™+ and RHA Redensity. Revanesse® Lips™+ is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler that can be used to restore lost volume and create a fuller-looking lip in patients 22 years of age and older, while RHA Redensity is an HA filler specifically designed to address lipstick lines.

Choosing Your Lip Shape

When getting lip filler treatment, you’ll need to choose a desired lip shape. Your lip shape will affect the overall appearance of your face and how balanced your features appear. Here are some popular shapes to consider.

  • Cupid’s Bow. Emphasizes the curve at the center of the lip for a sculpted, elegant look.
  • Subtle Lift. Focusing on the corners of the mouth, this look provides a slight lift to the mouth. Perfect for those who would like to appear happier or feel like they have a chronic downturn to their mouth.
  • Balanced Volume. Distributes volume between both lips equally. Perfect for those who would like a more symmetrical look.
  • Upper Lip Enhancement. Adds volume to the upper lip with the end goal of more symmetry in the lips.
  • Lower Lip Enhancement. Adds volume to the lower lip with the end goal of more symmetry in the lips.
  • Full, Rounded Lips. This look adds significant volume to both lips for a glamorous look
  • Heart-Shaped. This look adds the most volume at the center of the lips, creating a youthful look as the lips thin toward the corners.
  • Natural Enhancement. This shape focuses on maintaining your natural curvature while adding subtle volume.

Your aesthetic provider can advise you on which shapes will look best with your facial features.

How to Choose the Right Lip Filler

When considering lip fillers, it’s important to consult with a qualified aesthetic provider. Your provider can recommend a filler to you based on your aesthetic goals, lifestyle, and treatment needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there other filler options besides HA fillers?

You can get lip implants or fat injections. However, most aesthetic providers recommend HA fillers. Fat injections can be effective as lip fillers, but they may not always provide the results you want. Lip implants, particularly, are extremely hard to remove, which isn’t great if you don’t like the results.

What can I expect during and after my lip filler treatment?

Minimal downtime with temporary side effects like mild bruising, swelling, or tenderness. Any side effects will go away within a few days.

How long do the results typically last?

On average, results last about six months. You will need routine maintenance treatments.

Can Fillers be Dissolved if I Don’t Like My Results?

Yes! Most fillers can be fully dissolved in 1-2 corrective treatments. If you do not continue filler injections, they will gradually absorb into the body to return to your pre-filler state.
