Juvederm is the brand of hyaluronic acid dermal filler most frequently used for lip augmentation.

Juvederm can smooth out wrinkles, create volume, and improve the definition of the lips when injected into the skin. For more information, contact us or schedule an appointment online.

Results from a first-time Juvederm lip augmentation typically last for 6 months on average. Some may find that the effects of Juvederm last for up to 18 months after initial treatment. The quantity and type of filler will determine the variability of the length of effects, in addition to metabolism, age, and other factors.
Our bodies contain the naturally occurring molecule hyaluronic acid used in Juvederm, so the filler is gradually broken down and reabsorbed. In addition, lip fillers don’t last as long in younger people because they burn calories more quickly than older people do.
Injections of hyaluronic acid filler work better over the long term when done in layers, according to research. Usually, only minor touch-ups are necessary once you’ve achieved the desired result. Consequently, it is recommended to think of lip fillers and lip augmentation as more of a gradual process, as opposed to a one-time fix. With consistent maintenance, Juvederm has been known to offer benefits for up to 24 months.
Juvederm injections into the lips can cause different sensations from person to person. When receiving the injection, some people may feel a slight pinch or sting, while others may experience just a slight bit of pressure. The lips temporarily feel tingly or numb after receiving Juvederm injections, but this sensation usually passes in a short period of time. Some people experience a sensation of fullness or tightness as the Juvederm settles in and begins to meld with the natural tissues of the lips. After the injection, this sensation sometimes lingers for a few days or even a week.
It’s also typical to feel some firmness beneath the skin where filler has been injected. After 1 to 2 weeks, lumps from Juvederm lip injections, as well as swelling, discomfort, and bruising, should go away. After 2 weeks, if the lumps are still there and bothering you, you can try gently massaging them with the tips of your fingers. We also advise reaching out to your specialist if the lumps or bumps persist, as you might want to consider having some of the filler dissolved for a more even result. As swelling and other side effects subside, your lips should feel more normal and natural. Consult our clinic right away if the lumps are extremely painful or seem infected, as these could be signs of something more serious.
With Juvederm fillers, enhancing the lips typically only requires one syringe. Occasionally, we will place up to 2 or even 3 syringes in the lips, but this is typically only required for an older patient who has lost significant volume in the lips, as well as lip definition and structure.
Our clinic uses lip fillers sparingly because we are aware that many people have seen Instagram models and celebrities with overdone lips. We want to avoid similar outcomes and prioritize the most effective and budget-friendly course of treatment for our clients.
An in-depth, initial consultation is highly advised so you can discuss your desired results of Juvederm injections in the lips. Your specialist will be able to outline how many syringes of Juvederm will be required for your unique case.
If you want your lips to be noticeably fuller, but don’t want to go overboard we suggest starting with half a syringe of Juvederm to see how you enjoy the results. If you decide you want a more dramatic effect, more filler can be added in future sessions.
