8 Frequently Asked Lip Filler Questions


If having plump lips is your life-long dream, this article is for you.

A beautiful lip shape can mean the difference between having a fresh, young, and sexy look, or not. 

Pillowy lips have become one of the most sought-after beauty traits of our day and there’s a good reason for it. 

According to scientists, full lips signal youth and vitality. Younger lips are naturally fuller, lending them a slight pout, and as we grow older the body produces less collagen, as a result, the lips start to thin out and lose their plumpness. 

Therefore, if your lips aren’t as full as you’d like, and you’re considering the services of a professional medical spa in Fair Lawn NJ to achieve the perfect pout, you should consider the following.

What are lip fillers made of?

Most fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that your body creates naturally. It can change the shape, volume, and structure of your lips. Because hyaluronic acid occurs naturally, it’s extremely rare for allergic reactions to occur.

There are various brands of fillers, and Dr. Galope recommends one based on your specific needs and goals.

Lip fillers can be used to add volume, correct uneven lip shape, and smooth out smoker’s lines.

How long do lip fillers last?

Like most cosmetic procedures, lip fillers aren’t permanent. They dissolve naturally over time.

Most fillers last a minimum of six months.

How often does one need to get lip fillers?

Most people touch up every six months to a year, but it comes down to what kind of look you’re going for.

The best thing is that you can always decide later if you want to touch them up and how much filler you want according to your preferences. 

Are Lip Fillers Safe?

Yes. Dr. Roel Galope, DO of Lasting Impression Medical Aesthetics in Fair Lawn, is an expert aesthetic physician that only uses FDA approved products. 

Is it Painful?

Our staff marks the area where the injection goes and you may be given a local anesthetic, then very fine needles are used to make the injections.

You may need ice for a few minutes to prevent any swelling or discomfort. You should avoid lipstick or other products for a few hours.

How Long Is the Recovery?

The procedure is generally quick, and you likely won’t need any downtime to recover.

You may want to avoid exercise the next day to minimize swelling. 

Will My Lips Feel Different?

Following the procedure, your lips will feel swollen for a few days. Then, your lips may feel stiff for about two weeks, but will gradually soften to a point where they will look fuller and soft.

Will the Results Look Natural?

The amount of filler you get and the shape are ultimately up to you. You’ll have a treatment plan that is right for you. It comes down to whether you want plump lips or just add some subtle volume.

Besides, the treatments can be spread out over a few visits, so that the change is gradual until you achieve the beautiful natural look you dream of. 

Dr. Galope is an expert aesthetic physician and uses fillers, Botox, and PDO threads to improve the look and shape of your lips and mouth.
