There are many different lip fillers available on the market, but not all are created equal. One important factor to consider is the degree of crosslinking in the filler. This refers to the number of bonds between the molecules in the gel. Fillers with a higher degree of crosslinking are generally more resistant to breakdown and degradation, which means they will last longer on the lips. For this reason, it is important to ask your injector about the degree of crosslinking in the filler they are using. At Edmonton’s Lip Fillers, we only use a high degree of crosslinking, so you can be sure you’re getting the best possible results.
The Art Of Lip Fillers
The lips are a sensitive and complex body part, capable of a wide range of expressions. They comprise several tissue types, including skin, muscle, and mucous membranes. The skin of the lips is thin and delicate and is protected by a thin layer of mucous membrane. The lips’ muscles are responsible for various facial expressions, including smiling, frowning, and puckering.
Upper and lower lips
Your lips are composed of two main parts: the upper and lower lip. The upper lip is also known as the upper labium, while the lower lip is called, the lower labium. Each lip comprises three main sections: the body, the free margin, and the vermilion. The body is the fleshy part of the lip that extends from the base to the free margin. The free margin is the outer edge of the lip, where your lips meet in the middle. The vermilion is the coloured part of your lips, giving them their characteristic hue. Your lips also contain several small muscles that allow you to pucker them or make other facial expressions. Finally, your lips are lined with mucous membranes, which help to keep them moist and prevent them from drying out.

How Long Do They Last?
Lip fillers typically last six months to a year before the body absorbs them. Touch-up injections may be necessary to maintain the results. There are a variety of brands of lip fillers on the market, so it is important to consult with a qualified physician to determine which type is right for you.
How Much Fillers Do I Need?
The number of lip fillers you need will depend on your desired results. One or two syringes may be sufficient if you are looking for a subtle enhancement. However, if you want a more significant change, you may need three or more syringes. The brand filler you choose will also affect the amount you need. For example, Juvederm Volbella tends to last six months or less, while Volbella can last up to a year. Ultimately, the best way to determine how much filler you need is to consult with our experienced injectors, who can assess your individual needs and recommend an appropriate treatment plan.

Lip Filler Care
To avoid bruising, lip fillers should be injected with a blunt cannula, and the filler should be placed deep into the lip tissue. The best way to avoid bruising is to have the procedure done by a professional experienced in lip injections. Avoiding Aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil, vitamin E, and green tea before the procedure will also help reduce the risk of bruising. Ice can be applied to the area after the procedure to help reduce swelling and bruising. Moreover, you should avoid taking Aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (like Ibuprofen, Advil, and Motrin), alcohol, and Vitamin E for seven days before your treatment. Please don’t wear makeup or only makeup that is easy to remove so that the area that needs to be cleaned can be seen and cleaned.

Post Lip Fillers Care
Bruising in the injection points after lip fillers is normal and expected, especially if treated around the eyes and lips. Bruising usually lasts one week but can last up to several weeks. Eating 2 kiwi fruit and taking or using Arnica may help.
Do not apply products with peeling effects, such as Glycolic acid. Perform a test spot before using these products by applying a small amount to the treated area; if there is any irritation, remove the product and perform another spot test in 24-48 hours—resume products when there is no sense of irritation.
Avoid intense heat (sunbathing) or extreme cold for the first 2 weeks to avoid further inflammation of the area.
Touch-ups may be done in 1-2 weeks if needed, but waiting 6 to 8 weeks is recommended.
Avoid chemical and laser peels and all treatments that heat the skin, including Ulthera and Thermage, that produce Rf to Ultrasound energy for two to four weeks after receiving lip fillers. These treatments use dermal-level heat to tighten the skin and might affect the filler’s stability and shape.
What Are Lip Lines?
We use Lip fillers to help with lip lines as well. Each individual develops lip lines. And if they appear to creep up on you, that is also quite typical. These lines develop gradually and become more noticeable as you age, owing to the breakdown of elastin and collagen in the skin. These two proteins, elastin and collagen, are responsible for your skin remaining youthful, supple, and taut. When they degrade, and your body cannot replenish them, wrinkles become more noticeable. Another result of the aging process is a decrease in the number of natural oils produced by your skin. These oils help to keep the skin’s outer layer moisturized. Once they begin to fade, you may notice additional lip lines.
What Is the Best Way to Treat Lip Lines?
- Botox: Botox injections relax muscles and aid in the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. Most lines around the lips develop due to the Orbicularis Oris muscle becoming overactive. This will assist in softening the wrinkles and reducing the fold lines. Botox injections have the added benefit of acting as “speech therapy.” Teaching us to communicate effectively without overusing our muscles will have long-term advantages.
- Additionally, it is cost-effective since just a few units will be required to help reduce lip lines.
- Additionally, these injections will volumize the size and contour of the lips. This is a short-term treatment that will last around six weeks. It may cause mild numbness in the lips and difficulty drinking via a straw. Some may note that the letters B and P will be spoken more softly.
- Lip Fillers: Fillers are another excellent choice for reducing the appearance of lip wrinkles. We add volume and definition to the region by injecting thin, soft, and natural-looking fillers such as Volbella and Restylane Silk directly into the area. Additionally, we can improve the border and body of the lips using injectable fillers to enhance your natural lip shape and get the desired results. How long it will last greatly depends on the filler you choose.
Lifting the Lips’ Corners
As you age, the corners of your lips may appear to recede. Corner lip lifts are an excellent technique to combat this aspect of the aging process. However, we can help you with several other cosmetic improvement treatments.
- Botox: Botox stops muscular contraction, which you may believe would help to relax the corners of the mouth further. However, injecting Botox into the muscles surrounding the mouth, especially the corners, can have a lifting effect. Concentrating on the muscle that pulls your mouth into a scowl may automatically elevate the corners of your mouth.
- Lip Fillers: Apart from the natural drooping of the mouth corners that occurs with age, many people develop marionette lines. These vertical creases run from the lips’ corners to the chin. The term is taken from Marionette puppets, which feature lengthy vertical wrinkles on their faces. Marionette’s lines give the face a sad shape. Several factors contribute to this appearance, such as aging, smoking, and dramatic weight loss. Fortunately, we can revert the marionette lines with dermal fillers in as little as 5 minutes. These filters will increase volume and elevate the lip corner. The effects are instantaneous, and these fillers normally last between 10 and 12 months. You may have moderate swelling and bruising at the injection site.
Lip Shape and Volume Enhancement
Non-surgically enhancing the contour and volume of the lips is a very popular cosmetic procedure. Improving the lips to seem as natural as possible is critical, which is why we strive for specific lip ratios depending on individual circumstances. Two extremely common lip augmentation treatments are as follows:
Lip flip is a new, non-invasive lip enhancement procedure that gives patients the fuller, more youthful-looking lips they desire without using lip fillers. We perform lip flips by injecting a small amount of Botox into the lips, which relaxes the muscles and creates a “flipping” effect that creates the appearance of fuller lips. The lip flip is a quick and easy procedure that we finish in less than 30 minutes without downtime. We use the TSK invisible needle, so a lip flip is a great option for those who are needle-phobic or have had bad lip filler experiences. If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to achieve fuller, more youthful-looking lips, the lip flip may be right for you.
Lip fullness might diminish with aging. An injectable filler may be the answer if you want to add volume to your lips. Several injectable fillers are on the market, and each can provide somewhat different effects. The objective is to give just enough volume to enhance and smooth the lips without making them seem artificial or “over-plumped.” The benefits might last six months and two years, depending on the substance utilized.
Understanding the Lip Anatomy for Best Lip Fillers Results
The upper lip
The upper lip extends inferiorly from the base of the nose to the nasolabial folds and superiorly from the base of the nose to the free edge of the vermilion border. The lower lip extends superiorly from the superior free vermilion border, laterally to the commissures, and inferiorly to the mandible. A tiny line of pale skin around the circumferential vermilion/skin boundary emphasizes the colour difference between the vermilion and regular skin. Two vermilion paramedian elevations produce the Cupid’s bow along the upper vermilion/skin border. Two rising vertical columns of tissue produce the philtrum, a depression in the midline.
The cupid bow
Lips, as you know, have two sections: upper and lower lips. The upper lip has three planes, while the lower lip has two planes. Beneath the surface of the lips is a small cupid bow-shaped mound of flesh known as the tubercle. This protrusion helps to give the lips their characteristic shape. However, it also serves an important function in sexual attraction, as it helps to guide pheromones toward the nose. Consequently, lip anatomy is both aesthetically pleasing and functionally important.
The vermillion border
The vermillion border is the line that separates your lips from the rest of your skin. It comprises two types of skin: inner and outer skin. The outermost layer is thin and dry, while the inner layer is thick and moist. The vermillion border is also home to a wealth of nerve endings, which is why your lips are so sensitive to touch. The vermillion border also plays an important role in facial expressions, helping to create subtle nuances in your expressions. from a simple smile to a pout. So next time you look in the mirror, look closer at your lips. The complex anatomy that makes them look so beautiful will amaze you.
The philtrum columns
The philtrum columns of the lips are made up of erectile tissue, which is why they can swell when blood flow increases (such as when we’re aroused). Moreover, they have a role in communication: when we protrude our lips, the philtrum columns stretch, which makes the lips thinner and tauter, changing their shape. This shape change allows us to make different sounds with our lips, such as pouting or whistling. The philtrum columns also give our lips their plump, “kissable” look. So next time you’re admiring someone’s full lips, remember to thank their philtrum columns!
The commissure corners
The commissure is the corner of the mouth, where the lips meet. The depression between the maxilla and the mandible forms it. The commissure is connected to the orbicularis oris muscle, which is responsible for closing the mouth. The vermilion border is the line between the lip and the skin. It is delineated by a ridge of epithelium that is slightly raised and pigmented. The body of the lip contains connective tissue, adipose tissue, and mucous membrane. The connective tissue gives shape to the lip and attaches it to the surrounding structures. The adipose tissue provides cushioning and support. The mucous membrane lining protects the inner surface of the lip from dehydration and infection.
Where to Inject Lip Fillers?
The most typical complaint is a deflating vermilion (the red component), followed by drooping angles of the mouth. Together, these two elements complete the picture of a sad face. Even if you have lips with sufficient volume, we can still define the vermilion border with a small number of lip fillers. We can enhance the lip pouts by injecting the filler beneath the muscle. Therefore, we see more patients who wish to enhance their upper lip d more frequently than the lower.
Dr. Alhallak determines the optimal lip augmentation method by examining the deficiency’s nature and the subject’s aesthetic goals. If you are born with thin lips, we can help you by injecting a lip filler into the deep. Moreover, we can enhance the definition by superficial filler. A superficially put filler with a concentration on the white roll and enlargement of the vermilion is perfect for pure cosmetic augmentation of the lips.
