Lips are a common area of concern for many patients looking for injectable dermal filler treatment, especially since surgical procedures can be complicated to perform on them. However, this doesn’t mean that dermal filler treatments aren’t complex: just preferable in terms of effort and results, especially with a skilled provider.
Back to 30 has plenty of experience using dermal filler injections for lip fillers, helping enhance the look of your lips by bringing them in line with what the rest of your face looks like. Our lip filler treatments can contour the shape of your lips to get as close to your desired results as possible, all without the need for invasive procedures.
Lip fillers are gel-like compounds that can subtly or drastically change the shape, volume, and overall look of your lips. By binding with the water molecules found in the lip area, they can plump up your lips (while also hydrating them) creating a smooth, natural look that blends well with the rest of your facial features.
Dermal fillers have plenty of different brands that you can use for your treatments, but in our experience, only hyaluronic acid fillers have the best possible results for lip filler treatments. While other types like collagen stimulators can work, the results patients usually want from their lip fillers require a lot of delicate work – which hyaluronic acid fillers excel at.
At Back to 30, we use several Juvederm fillers to get you the results that you want from your lip filler injections. Juvederm Ultra XC works well for mild improvements to lip symmetry; Juvederm Ultra Plus XC can add more volume; Juvederm Volbella XC can help plump the lips with long-lasting results.
Here are the top reasons why hyaluronic acid fillers work the best for lip fillers:
Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body and can be found in food – so it’s highly biocompatible with your body. Hyaluronic acid fillers can help provide natural-looking results, which are crucial since the lips need a lot of delicate work to get the procedure right.
This biocompatibility is crucial since allergic reactions can ruin any lip filler injections, and hyaluronic acid has high biocompatibility among dermal filler treatments. However, this also means that your body may absorb the hyaluronic acid in the filler faster – so consult your provider for further details.
Hyaluronic acid fillers do add volume to the lips, but they’re more flexible compared to other dermal filler types. That means the injections would feel more natural in your lips after your treatment, and you shouldn’t have any difficulties with the sensation after the filler has settled in.
The crucial safety feature of hyaluronic acid fillers is their susceptibility to hyaluronidase, a compound that breaks down hyaluronic acid. This is important in cases where you may not be completely happy with your filler results. Your provider can adjust your next dosage without any adverse effects, so you can get a better outcome.
Lip filler injections require a skilled injector for the best results. Like all dermal filler injections, there are some risks to getting them – though they usually resolve after a day or two of bed rest.
Here are the things you need to look out for with side effects:
Again, these side effects aren’t serious – but if you encounter any side effects that seem too out of place, consult a doctor immediately.

Our approach is simple: we help you get the best body possible without the need for invasive methods or surgery.
A: Lips are some of the more active areas on the face, so that means your body is likely to absorb the filler compound faster compared to places like the cheeks. While it’s difficult to give an exact estimate based on brand alone, most brands of lip fillers can generally last anywhere from 6 to 18 months. Consult your provider for more details.
A: Absolutely. Lip fillers are non-invasive and usually take no more than an hour of treatment to apply, so it’s possible to just block off an afternoon for a visit to your nearest med spa to get it done. However, most experts and plastic surgeons would still advise that you separate your consultation and the actual procedure, just in case you want to rethink some things about your treatment.
A: Because the lips have a lot of nerve endings, a little bit of pain is to be expected with lip filler injection. However, your injector has several ways they can make the procedure hurt less, from using equipment like microcannulas to applying products like topical numbing cream. If you’re worried about the pain, you can always talk to your provider for more details on what you can do about it.
A: While it’s a non-invasive procedure, lip filler treatment still requires some downtime after your session to avoid adverse effects and allow the filler time to settle in the lips. Fortunately, aside from keeping your lips relaxed (no pursing, puckering, or otherwise meddling with the lips) for a few days, you should be cleared to go about your usual activities.
A: Lip fillers are categorized under cosmetic treatments, which means that they’re not qualified for medical insurance. You can ask your provider or medical spa if they offer any discounts or promotions to help with the costs of lip filler treatments.
