What it solves
Lip fillers are injections that increase the volume of the lips and redefine their contour in a completely natural way. Sometimes intervening just a little to flesh out the shape and improve the tone, is enough to obtain perfect lips.
Hyaluronic acid is used in aesthetic medicine to increase lip volume without resorting to surgery.
There are various techniques, which are often reworked, renamed and adapted by the professionals themselves, based on their personal experiences.
Among the most popular methods to redefine the contour of the mouth and increase lip volume with hyaluronic acid fillers, we find:
- Russian Lips method: a natural mouth, fleshy but never protruding, with a well-marked Cupid’s bow
- iLips, a technique where the foremost aim is achieving the most natural result
- “Microbump” technique, one of the most frequently used methods
- Classic vertical/linear method, which makes use of multiple linear injections to create thin and superficial product “tunnels”
- “Raise angles” technique, which raises the outer corners to form the hint of a smile.
Image Regenerative Clinic’s philosophy regarding this aesthetic medical treatment is, as always, centered on the use of absorbable fillers (such as hyaluronic acid) and/or autologous tissue infiltrations (Lipogems®), with great attention to the naturalness of the result, which must always respect and improve the harmony of the face.
For whom is it appropriate
Lip filler treatment is indicated to increase lip volume and/or to redraw their contour, to lift the corners of the mouth and correct asymmetries. This treatment is recommended for those with thin, thinned, wrinkled and not very full lips.
Lip fillers can be performed at any age, and at any time of the year.
From 20 to 40 minutes.
Number of treatments and frequency
One session, with possible retouching after a month. To maintain the result, the treatment must be repeated every 10-15 months.
Do not expose yourself to the sun and heat sources in the week following the procedure. However, it is recommended to follow the specialist’s advice and instructions.
More voluminous lips, redefined and symmetrical mouth contours.
The lips can also be treated with Lipogems® for a more lasting result over time, and/or with botulinum toxin, especially to correct asymmetries, gummy smiles and sagging corners.

What not to do after lip filling?
It is recommended to avoid exposure to the sun, and heat sources, including Turkish baths and saunas.
Can swelling be caused?
The answer is very subjective. In general, the patient doesn’t have swelling, but this cannot be entirely ruled out. Of course, any swelling will disappear in a few days, and can be hidden by makeup.
How long does the first lip filler last?
The duration of the first lip filler depends both on the density of the hyaluronic acid, and on subjective factors. All absorbable fillers are progressively metabolized in 2 to 10 months or more. After the first procedure, the filler tends to reabsorb more slowly.
