You may be wondering: Does lip filler hurt? Unlike other methods of lip augmentation, lip filler is a relatively simple outpatient procedure that requires just a little bit of local anesthetic. When administered by a professional, lip filler can help create fuller and more beautiful looking lips, and results typically last for several months*. Join acclaimed cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Mariano Busso, for this special article on lip filler procedures, materials, and results.
Does Lip Filler Hurt?
Many patients are under the impression that lip filler procedures hurt. Those patients will be surprised and happy to hear that lip filler procedures are very rarely painful. In fact, most patients need only a local anesthetic during the procedure. Unlike lip augmentation with implants, the use of fillers does not typically require any incisions.
What Type of Lip Filler is Used?
One of our most popular lip fillers is Restylane® Silk. This dermal filler is well known for achieving fuller, sexier looking lips in just a single treatment*. Moreover, Restylane® Silk may be effective in reducing lip lines to create smoother looking lips.
Restylane® Silk uses a special formulation of hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar molecule that is safe for use as a lip filler. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring. In mammals and other organisms, this special molecule performs vital functions like keeping skin moisturized and joints lubricated. As a member of the Restylane® family of dermal fillers, Restylane Silk is safe and highly effective when used as a lip filler. Restylane Silk uses a special formulation of hyaluronic acid consisting of smaller molecules to yield smoother, natural looking results.
