What are lip fillers?
Lip fillers are cosmetic injectable made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for delivering nutrients to the skin and providing hydration. When injected into the lips, lip fillers plump up the lips and add volume. At our Montreal clinic, we offer lip filler treatments with Restylane and Belotero. These are all brands of hyaluronic acid that have been approved by Health Canada.
How lip fillers work?
Lip fillers work by adding volume to the lips. The lip filler is injected into the upper lip or the lower lip using a very fine needle. A numbing cream can be applied to the lips beforehand to minimize any discomfort.
The injected hyaluronic acid binds to water molecules, which helps to plump up the lips. Lip filler treatments typically last for six months to a year before the body breaks down and absorbs the hyaluronic acid. touch-ups may be required sooner if you have particularly thin skin or if you are using lip fillers for the first time.

Lip fillers can provide a number of benefits, including:
- Plumping up the lips

Do lip injections feel different when kissing?
Lip injections should not affect your ability to kiss. The lip filler is injected into the lips, not around them. You may feel a slight difference when kissing, but it should not be uncomfortable. Your fillers cannot be felt by you or your partner when kissing because your lips will retain their natural texture and softness a few days after injected

Lip injections are not painful. Most lip filler treatments take 30 minutes or less to complete. The lip filler is injected into the desired area using a very fine needle. During a lip filler procedure, your healthcare provider will apply a topical anesthetic to your lips. The topical anesthetic will numb your lips so you won't feel any pain and the process is as comfortable as possible. The numbing creams often consist of benzocaine , lidocaine and tetracaine (BLT).

How to prepare for your appointment and what to expect afterwards
Before your lip injection appointment, make sure to avoid blood thinners. Thinner blood will make the area more prone to bruising and bleeding, so 10 days prior, stop taking painkillers (e.g., aspirin or ibuprofen), fish oil, and vitamin E—and stop drinking alcohol, which also thins your blood. And anyone who has a history of cold sores should know that needle punctures, even from lip fillers, can be particularly triggering for cold sores. There is minimal to no down time. However, after your lip filler treatment, you can expect some swelling and bruising which will subside in the following few days.
How do lip injections feel?
When you are first injected, many people say that the filler feels slightly tight or hard, but if done correctly your lips will look beautiful and even.
What is the recovery time for lip fillers?
There is no downtime associated with lip filler treatments. You may experience some mild swelling and bruising, but this will typically resolve within a few days. We recommend avoiding strenuous activity and exposure to sunlight for the first 24 hours after your treatment.
What do I do before my lip filler treatment?
- Choose a qualified and experienced doctor or cosmetic surgeon
- Discuss your goals and expectations with your Doctor
- Avoid blood thinning and over the counter aspirin, Aleve, etc for at least one week prior injection.
What are lip filler aftercare tips?
- For possible swelling and bruising, you may apply some aloe vera and vitamin K. Make sure you check our doctor before using these remedies
- Avoid strenuous activity
- Avoid drinking alcohol
- Avoid touching or rubbing your lips
