Category Icon filed under Aesthetics | 2 Min Read

Lip fillers are an excellent way to achieve fuller and more youthful-looking lips. If you are considering this treatment, here are some of the top things you need to know about lip fillers first.


Having full lips can often make you look more youthful and improve your appearance. If you are concerned about naturally thin lips or your lips are losing volume due to age, a customised lip filler treatment could help create a more aesthetically pleasing mouth.

You may be considering lip filler treatment if:

You have naturally thin lips

Age has caused your lips to lose volume

You have asymmetrical lips

You are concerned about any wrinkles around your mouth

Fuller lips will balance out your features for a more pleasing appearance



5 Things to Know Before Your Lip Filler Treatment

1. Will I swell?

You will see the results of your lip fillers almost immediately, but your lips will be slightly swollen at first. This should reduce within 48 hours of the treatment.

2. Does it hurt?

It’s not as bad as you think: most people imagine that filler injections in the lip are horribly painful, but they are wrong. Your doctor will use a strong (prescription strength) topical numbing cream on the area to ease any discomfort.

3. Will others notice?

Done properly, lip filler will give you a subtle, natural appearance of a slightly fuller lip.  Only you and your doctor will know for sure.

4. Will I be able to feel it in my lips?

Not all fillers are equal.  Only a few of the FDA approved fillers are appropriate for use in lips.  The wrong fillers will be stiff, lumpy and unnatural looking. The correct ones will be smooth, soft and will “melt” right into your own lip tissue, feeling just like you. Here at Eighth & Eden, we only use the very best premium dermal fillers.

5.  Is lip filler only used to enhance the size?

It’s important to remember that Lip Filler treatment doesn’t have to mean fake looking lips.
It can be used for:

Shaping the lips

Treating lip asymmetry

Balancing of proportion of the upper and lower lip

Improving volume

Better definition of the borders or Cupid’s bow

The look of hydration

Smoothing lipstick lines

Turning up the lip corners for a resting smile
