Pouty, full lips are nothing but glamorous! So, thank goodness for lip fillers when your lips start to thin.
If you’re ready to enjoy big, beautiful lips, you might be considering dermal fillers for lips and have questions such as, “Lip filler swelling, is it normal,” and “Do I need to take time off work?” Here’s what you should know.
Lip fillers are made with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA), which your body produces naturally. As you age, your HA production slows down.
That’s when you start to notice your cheeks have much less definition, and your lips become a lot less full. When a lip filler is injected into your lips, it makes them plump, smooth, and naturally youthful looking.
Yes, many people experience minor swelling and redness at the injection sites. This is totally normal. However, this swelling is very short lived and goes away quickly. Lip fillers are non-invasive, non-surgical, and take very little time out of your day.
There’s no downtime, either. You can go right back to your usual activities right after treatment, and do not need to take time away from work or family.
Most brands are priced per injection. For instance, Restylane costs about $300 to $650 per injection, and Juvéderm Volbella XC is priced at around $500 to 900 per injection.
Keep in mind, prices always vary with geographic location, the person providing your treatment, and other factors.
