How Much are Lip Fillers?

Whether you have never had the lip fullness you wanted or you have lost it over time, thin lips can make you feel self-conscious. Lip fillers let you achieve the full, defined lips you want while keeping your natural motion and expressions. At Skinatomy, we offer several lip filler options to meet your needs and let us choose the best one for you. 

What are Lip Fillers?

The lips are one of the most popular areas for dermal filler treatment. Lip fillers are specially designed dermal fillers with a formula intended for this delicate area. Fillers used for wrinkles or adding volume to the cheeks would hinder the natural motions of your lips, so lip fillers are smoother and not as thick as these other filler types. They are highly flexible, allowing them to move with your lips as you talk, laugh, and smile.

How Do Lip Fillers Work?

Your Skinatomy team offers several types of lip fillers, but they work in the same general way. Dermal fillers for the face come in a range of materials that work in different ways, but the results are usually not suitable for use in the lips. As a result, most lip fillers use the same material. 

Lip fillers usually use hyaluronic acid, a common compound found naturally in your skin and in many skincare products. This molecule draws in and holds onto moisture, making it ideal for plumping and smoothing. Lip fillers use specially cross-linked hyaluronic acid formulas that give your lips freedom of motion and look completely natural. Each brand uses a different process to produce their fillers. 

Lip fillers are also used to treat fine lines around the mouth, including vertical lines at the edges of the lips. Other types of fillers would be too dense for these small, flexible areas. Discuss all your concerns with your injector so they can help you address them. 

How Much are Lip Fillers?

If you are considering lip fillers or any other procedure, you most likely have questions about the cost. Lip fillers, like other dermal fillers, are priced per syringe. Since the lips are a relatively small area, most people only need one syringe for this area, but you may need more. Other factors that influence your cost include:

  • Your location
  • Your injector’s skill and experience
  • The type of lip filler used

The average nationwide cost of a lip filler treatment is about $750, although this varies widely. If you have areas around your lips treated as well, your cost may be higher. We recommend a consultation so we can examine your lips and provide you with an accurate estimate. 

When considering lip filler costs, keep in mind that facilities with highly trained, experienced injectors may be more expensive than others. However, poorly injected lip fillers can create problems, so trust your lips to Skinatomy’s skilled injectors. 

How Long Does it Take to Get Lip Fillers?

Getting lip fillers is quick and convenient. Many people stop in for treatment on a lunch break and return to work immediately. The injections use tiny needles and can take as little as 15 minutes to perform. Most people experience very little discomfort and describe the injections as a minor pinching sensation, if anything. 

If you are anxious about needles or receiving lip injections, talk to one of our expert injectors. They will give you a detailed description of what you can expect and help you feel more comfortable. Most people find the process easier and quicker than they expected and do not hesitate to return for maintenance appointments.

Am I a Good Candidate for Lip Fillers?

Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in your skin, making negative reactions extremely unlikely. Lip fillers that use this material are suitable for almost anyone. Good candidates want to achieve plump, full lips that move naturally. Candidates should be in good health and have reasonable expectations. 

You should not have filler injections any time you have an active skin condition or infection in the treatment area. Let us know if hyaluronic acid has caused a reaction for you before. In general, this FDA-approved material is safe for almost any healthy adult. 

What Kinds of Lip Fillers Are Available?

While all our lip fillers (and almost all available lip fillers) use hyaluronic acid, each brand uses unique processes to form this material into a cohesive gel with the right properties. These differences result in slight variations that help your injector select the right one for you. 


This family of fillers has members to address the cheeks, jaw, wrinkles, and other areas. Juvederm® Volbella is designed to plump the lips and smooth “smoker’s lines” around the mouth. It is one of the most widely known dermal filler brands. 


Another popular and well-known filler family, Restylane®, can treat the same general areas as Juvederm®. Their lip filler, Restylane® Silk, is a smooth, natural-looking filler option that can also be used for fine lines around the mouth. 


This brand of fillers offers several options for your lips, depending on how dramatic you prefer your results to be. STYLAGE® formulas combine hyaluronic acid and antioxidants to hydrate and improve your lips. It is increasing in popularity as more people discover its benefits. 

How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?

How long your lip filler lasts depends on your body’s individual response to it. Lip fillers generally last six months to a year. Maintenance treatments can be performed as often as needed to keep your results from fading. A lip balm that contains an SPF may help prolong your results. If you do not achieve your desired results from one lip filler, or if it fades too fast, your Skinatomy expert injector may try a different formula. 

Is There Any Downtime After Lip Fillers?

Most people return to work or other activities immediately after getting their lip filler injections. There is no downtime, but you may notice minor redness, swelling, or bruising in the injection area. These effects fade within a few days, and your injector can give you suggestions for how to minimize the likelihood of bruises. These may include stopping certain over-the-counter medications and supplements and avoiding alcohol before treatment.
