Lip Fillers Q & A

What are lip fillers?

Lip fillers are cosmetic injectables designed to improve the volume and overall appearance of your lips. At All Star Dental Care, there are several nurse practitioners dedicated to this service.

Treatment with lip fillers is minimally invasive and requires little downtime. Following your appointment, you can return to normal activity right away.

Why would I need lip fillers?

As you get older, your lips naturally lose collagen and fat. That causes them to become skinny and less full. Lip fillers replace the lost collagen and fat, restoring volume and improving their aesthetic appearance.

If the size or appearance of your lips negatively affects your confidence or self-esteem, lip fillers provide a safe and effective treatment option that can help you look and feel your best.

Am I a good candidate for lip fillers?

To determine if you’re a good candidate for lip fillers, All Star Dental Care physically examines your face and lips, reviews your medical history, and asks about your lifestyle and goals for treatment. During your initial consultation, make sure to let your provider know about any prescription medications, vitamins, or nutritional supplements you take regularly.

You might also want to bring pictures of celebrities or models you admire. Your nurse practitioner can look at these photos and design a custom treatment plan using them as a guide.

What type of lip fillers are used?

All Star Dental Care uses two types of lip fillers –– Juvéderm® Ultra XC and Juvéderm® Volbella® XC. Both are members of the Juvéderm family of fillers. They plump up your lips, increasing their size, overall volume, and appearance. 

Are lip fillers permanent?

The results that lip fillers provide aren’t permanent, but they can last for six months to a year. To achieve the best results, make sure to follow your nurse practitioner’s instructions. You should also visit All Star Dental Care for follow-up treatment as needed.

What is recovery like after lip filler treatment?

Following your lip filler appointment, you can return to work or other normal activities right away. It’s normal to experience mild bruising and redness around your lips, but this should subside within a week. 

If possible, try to avoid smiling or pursing your lips for 48 hours. That minimizes any soreness and ensures the product sets accordingly.
