Lip Injections vs. Lip Fillers

Lip injections vs. lip fillers..which treatment do you choose? You’ve most likely heard of lip injections but do you know what lip fillers are? You might be surprised to learn that they’re actually the same treatment. Many patients get confused with all of the nicknames that are thrown around in the media but lip injections are lip fillers.


So now that you understand lip fillers and lip injections are one and the same, what exactly are they? You’ve seen pictures of friends or celebrities that have enhanced their lips with injections but what’s being injected? What’s the ‘filler?’

The filler we use is actually a naturally-occurring substance that’s already found within your body. Referred to as a ‘dermal filler,’ the substance is medically called ‘Hyaluronic Acid.’ (HA). HA can be found throughout your skin tissues including your face area as well as places like your joints. HA helps your tissues stay hydrated which is why lip fillers temporarily give you that ‘plum’ look when injected into your skin. They ‘fill’ the areas that need more volume.

While your body eventually absorbs the HA, that process takes about 4-6 months so generally you only need to maintain your lip filler 2-3 times per year which makes lip injection treatments fairly convenient. The best part about lip injections is that they’re completely safe. What’s the use in having an effective treatment if it could potentially cause you hard? By using a natural substance to fill your lips, you can rest assured that your body won’t have any adverse reactions and you’ll eventually absorb the HA over time.
