How Lips and Beauty are Related?

Add some humor with 0.5ml lip filler before and after, and say farewell to thin lips.

Hello to fuller pouts with lip injections!

Two things should be beautiful in a girl- her glance and lips.

~Marilyn Monroe~

Full and luscious lips indicate youth, beauty, and health. Sufficient research shows that men are significantly drawn to women with big, plump, and pillowy pouts. Psychologically, the lips signify fertility, sexuality, and youthfulness to men.

Even today, women worldwide have gone to extreme lengths to achieve beautiful lips. Lip injections are one way they enhance their appeal and femininity.

5️⃣Most Impractical Ways to Achieve Big Beautiful Lips (which you may be using now!)

Who does not want big, pouty lips? No one! Not many people can afford expensive lip injections. Some are simply afraid of the needles and the pain they will experience. This often leads them to try some of the most bizarre things imaginable!

The list is endless, from toothpaste to shot glasses. However, it is safe to say that these insane ideas are highly unsafe and completely useless. Wait, there is more! You may also waste your hard-earned cash on such cheap and funky ideas when you don’t have to.

Following are some of the most ineffective ways to get bigger pouts:

① Lip Volumizing Gloss: 

Social media has popularized big lips, and because of this, lip-plumping products are being sold like hotcakes. Lip volumizing glosses claim to plump up your lips in a few seconds without pricking your lips and are cheaper alternatives to lip fillers.

This may sound quite convincing; however, the ingredients they contain, such as capsicumpeppermintcinnamonbee venom (yikes!), or menthol, can cause severe irritation, redness, painful peeling of lips, and bleeding cracks.

Indeed, such products are not worthy of an investment. The plumping effect of these products is also temporary.

② Toothpaste: 

Toothpaste was only meant to clean teeth and gums. With the advent of fuller lips fad, minty toothpaste is widely used to create luscious lips. However, this is another bad idea because the results are temporary, and prolonged application of toothpaste to lips can make them dry and chapped.

③ Silicone Lip Plumpers: 

These silicon-based toys promise to make your lips big and voluminous through cupping suction instantly. However, such tools can harm your lips and permanently damage the skin around them. Furthermore, the effects are quite short-lived.

④ Using Cinnamon: 

Cinnamon is a safe and natural way to enhance and enlarge lips because it is a naturally occurring spice. Even a tiny cinnamon powder application can cause a tingling sensation, a negative skin reaction. Moreover, too much cinnamon application can cause swelling, redness, and rashes.

Useless Lip Masks: 

Another trendy and much-hyped product for juicier lips is lip masks. Most are infused with liquid collagen and promise to give big, luscious lips. However, such claims are not research-based and have no scientific support.

Needless to say, you cannot achieve a beautiful and desirable pout without needle-based lip filler! 

Cosmetic Fillers Are the Only Option for the Lips of Your Dreams

Dermal fillers are a surefire way to enlarge naturally thin, uneven, aging, and unattractive lips. Furthermore, these non-invasive fillers add volume and contour and diffuse those undesirable wrinkles around your lips.

Lip injections are widely used to reshape lips that are not proportionate to your face, thus creating symmetry and balance. As you age, you also lose the natural collagen from your lips. Whereas cosmetic fillers can rescue those recessive, thinned-out lips in no time!

There is more; unlike dangerous DIYs and lazy home remedies, lip injections are relatively quick. They are also less risky and can give you a ‘your lips but better’ look with little recovery time!

However, it is important to know that your results from dermal fillers will be temporary, depending upon many factors, but the results are worth your investment.

9️⃣Most Effective Ways to Get Luscious Lips with Lip Fillers in 2024!

Naturally, Fuller Lips:

Your genetically thin lips are now a tale of the past. Yes, you read it right! The lip fillers containing hyaluronic acid can give your lips fullness and an attractive pout. An expert aesthetician can help you to achieve natural and sensual lips. Here is the best part: your friends cannot detect your new lips but can only envy them.

② Become instantly gorgeous! :

It may be true that good things take time, but this may not be the case for lip injections! The results from these fillers are instantly visible. As the swelling subsides, you can enjoy spectacular results without marking your calendar.

③ The procedure is quicker than your morning shower:

For all those who are busy at home or work or are procrastinators, this one is for you. Big, beautiful pouts are now achievable in 20 to 30 minutes, or even less if you desire rehydration.

④ Little recovery time:

You can expect to resume your routine activities when you leave the doctor’s office. However, it is advisable that you may experience minor bruising or swelling after the lip injections, so it is better not to schedule your non-surgical procedure before any big event.

⑤ You don’t have to experience pain if you don’t want to:

If you have a fear of needles, if you are sure you will feel discomfort, then all you need is a topical numbing cream just before your fillers! During the procedure, you will not feel a thing; after it, all you will be leaving with is a set of lips to die for!

⑥ A Cost-Effective Procedure For You:

You may have tried and tested everything to achieve those dreamy lips. However, you would not want to spend your hard-earned money on cheap gimmicks and fraudulent schemes. Lip fillers are a tried, tested, and touted way to achieve aesthetic goals.

⑦ Boosts Your Self-Confidence You Deserve:

Another reason to consider a non-surgical lip augmentation procedure is that it enhances your personality and boosts your self-esteem like no other! Lip fillers are a great way to improve your smile and become camera-friendly without pouting. It’s ok if you want to!

⑧ To Rehydrate Your Lifeless Lips:

Lip balms, masks, and scrubs are used on dry, flaky, chapped lips. They claim to hydrate, smooth, and moisturize dull and lifeless lips. Some even claim to enlarge your pout with liquid collagen.

However, they are not always safe and do not entirely serve the purpose. How? Most of them contain mineral oil that can only dry out your lips. With lip injections, you can effectively quench the thirst of your lips.

⑨ Anti-Ageing Effect:

As we age, we lose fat and volume from our faces. As if that was not enough, our lips start to lose their shape. The lost collagen is vital to keeping us from looking mature and old! The beauty of cosmetic fillers is that they can restore your juvenility and act as a preventive anti-aging measure

What does the lip filler procedure look like?

Non-surgical lip enhancement is a delicate procedure that requires expertise and skills to be carried out successfully. After a thorough consultation with your doctor and a detailed discussion of your expectations and possible outcomes, the actual procedure occurs.

The best aspect of this non-surgical procedure is that it lasts only 30 minutes! The lip injections are usually painless; however, different local anesthetics ensure minimal discomfort.

Do not become a ‘Trout Mouth’!

Lip filler procedures give you and your doctor complete control over your lips. A gradual journey to beauty is better than a revolutionary one! The right doctor will know that though shaping the lips is important, it has to be done by keeping all the facial features in harmony.

Combining other treatments with dermal fillers can give excellent results because it is necessary to harmonize the entire face.

5️⃣Incredible Ways Your Lip Fillers Can Transform Your Look (without becoming a Trout Pout)

Natural lips are always in fashion. You don’t have to go overboard with lip injections to look ravishing. If you desire to improve the upper lip, you only need a little filler to accentuate and define its vermillion border. Yes, it is that simple! 

Dermal Fillers can guarantee to enhance the following areas of your lips:

① Structure:

Enhancing the Philtrum ridges of the lips creates the Angelina Jolie look, and the entire face gains more symmetry.

② Volume Enhancement:

Fillers can augment the fleshy part of the upper and lower lip to mimic collagen and give a ‘Plump Effect’ to them.

③ Definition and Dimension of the lips:

It is one of the most common areas of concern for many who seek lip injections. The vermilion borders and Cupid’s bow are enhanced to give the lips that much-needed definition and dimension. There is no need for lip liners now!

④ Sad corners of the mouth:

Lines that go down from the corners of the mouth can be lifted up just by using lip injections. That is happy news, indeed!

⑤ Smoker’s Lines:

It is now possible to diffuse the unsightly wrinkles and fine vertical lines on the upper lip caused by ageing or smoking.

Which Lip Shape Is Right For Me?

All lip shapes are beautiful. However, it goes without saying that the best lip shape is the one that suits your face shape, complements your facial features, and follows the ‘Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi’. A lip shape that suits Kylie Jenner may not necessarily be suitable for your face shape.

Here are some of the most popular and attractive lip shapes your injections can offer you!

◉ The Classic:

This lip shape gives a more natural and subtle definition to all areas of your lips. If you face a volume loss issue due to aging, this lip augmentation is for you.

The Cute Cupid:

If looking youthful and confident is your goal, this lip-shaped style can help you achieve that. It is very pronounced in young females and is now within your reach! Think of our favorite Taylor Swift.


This lip shape is opposite to the Cupid Style. More volume and definition is given to the lower lip. It gives a more youthful appearance to the personality.


This particular lip shape depends on your facial structure. If your face is sufficiently long from the bottom of your nose to the chin, the Rubina style can look very attractive.

The Hollywood Girl:

If it is the lips that you want to be the star of the show, the Hollywood Style is just what you need! Countless celebrities, including Monica Belucci, carry this lip shape and look stunning.

The Angelic:

Lip injections are placed to accentuate the upper lip vermillion borders on both sides of the lips. The elongated corners look like an angel’s wings.

Lip Shapes Are A Deciding Factor For Before and After Results
Different lip shapes call for tailored approaches. During lip filler treatments, it’s crucial to determine the most suitable shape for each individual lip.

Why My Lips Are So Swollen and What Can I Do About It?

Like in any other non-surgical procedure, you can expect slight bruising and swelling. The swelling can be different for different people, which is quite common during recovery. The swelling tends to go down rapidly, and it is best to wait for at least 3 to 5 days before enjoying your results.

Lip Filler Swelling is a Roller Coaster Ride

Day 1: The swelling is minimal, and there is redness with a little bruising

Day 2:  Swelling is increased, with slight redness and bruising visible (No need to panic! Your body is simply acknowledging the fillers)

Day 3: By this day, swelling, redness, and discomfort should have gone, and your actual results should start to show through. (Hello, beautiful!)

Day 4: By this day, most of the swelling should be gone, and the full effects of the procedure should be visible.

Day 5: Any bruises or swelling can be concealed using light makeup (and you can flaunt your favorite lipstick on Instagram too!)

Post Lip Filler Journey To Recovery
Weeks 1 to 3 progressed in the post-lip filler journey for the first time.

It is all in the Aftercare:

Pamper your lips, please. Even though the recovery time is comparatively less than that of any surgical procedure, there is usually some bruising and swelling after the injections. It is essential to pamper your lips with ice packs (use ice packs for 5-10 minutes periodically), arnica gel application, and loads of water intake.

◉ Fluff it up: It is equally important to sleep while keeping your head a little elevated for a few days.

Avoid heat! : This means no sunbathing, no hot saunas, no strenuous workouts, and no kissing. Your lips will thank you for this later. 

Avoid Junk Food and Sodium: Health experts have already advised against too much sodium, but it is particularly harmful after a facial or non-surgical procedure. The primary reason is possible worsened swelling.

Go makeup-free for a while: It is better to avoid makeup and harsh cleansers and scrubs for up to 24 hours after your procedure. 

What Is The Right Amount of Lip Filler for Me?

Lip fillers are loved by some and despised by some. On the one hand, they can incredibly create a stunner. On the other, they can permanently transform someone beyond recognition. (Negatively!) Using the right amount at the right place by the right doctor can help you become irresistible.

However, overdone lip fillers can make you regret your decision, especially if you do not consider your entire facial balance.

Here are different amounts of fillers and the service they do to your ultimate lip goals:

ⓐ 0.5 ml lip filler:

This amount of filler is ideal for plumping one of your lips. If your upper lip is smaller or thin and you want to make it look more noticeable, you can opt for 0.5ml to achieve your goal.

However, this filler is not a good option if you want to plump both lips because of its uneven distribution.

    • 5ml is also great if you have naturally full lips and only want to define them or correct minor imperfections. You can safely maintain your desired results. Moreover, it can also be used for lip rehydration and to give that ‘Plump effect.’

ⓑ 0.7ml lip filler:

If you are still seeking the right balance for your lips, find 0.5ml not enough and 1ml too much.  A filler of this amount can address many issues, ranging from minor corrections to a dramatic effect, especially if you have thin lips. It is the best of both worlds!

ⓒ 1 ml lip filler:

This is the most commonly injected amount of lip filler by practitioners. It is usually used to treat minor asymmetries, imperfections, and volume loss. 1ml is also a good choice if you want to ‘spot treat’ other areas of your face.

ⓓ 2ml lip filler: 

If you have genetically very small or invisible lips, this amount of lip filler can give you a glamorous pout. It is also used to enhance lips of average size; however, it can significantly imbalance your naturally full lips.

This showcases a before-and-after comparison, illustrating the progression before, 1 minute into, and after receiving 2ml of lip fillers. It’s worth noting that we don’t recommend 2ml for everyone.

ⓔ 3ml and 4ml lip filler:

If you plan to join the entertainment and showbiz industry, this amount of filler may help you achieve that movie-star look. However, it is not an ideal volume and does not look visually appealing.

The horrors of overdone pout by frequently using lip fillers by using too much of them can seriously hurt your profile and personality.

Are the Non-Surgical Lip Fillers Worth It?

According to a study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the demand for aesthetic procedures is surging worldwide. Humans are visual creatures. Anything that pleases our eyes becomes instantly meaningful to us. Therefore, the possibility of becoming attractive and beautiful has led to a spike in cosmetic procedures.

Lips are one of the most powerful facial features and also one of the distinctive features of women. Women are aware that their lips matter. Their voluptuous, soft, and smooth lips will make them more desirable and appealing to their male counterparts.

Lip fillers are the only viable option to help you achieve what God did not give you!

If you want to look confident and boost your self-esteem, this non-surgical procedure can definitely help you attain your beauty goals. If having great lips is key to your success and growth in your personal and professional life, then lip injections are worth your time and every single penny!

Frequently Ask Questions (FAQs)

How long do lip fillers last?

The longevity of lip fillers varies from person to person and the type of filler used. Typical lip filler can last from 6 to 12 months. Moreover, some interesting studies suggest that dermal filler can last as long as 2 years! These revelations are based on MRI scans.

How much are lip fillers?

After the first syringe, clinics like us will discount the second or second half (1.5ml) if carried out in a single session. However, we do not recommend our clients more than 1ml of filler at a time. A gradual buildup of volume can give better results, and it is always good to let the fillers settle in your lips first.

What are different lip filler brands?

There are many soft tissue filler brands available. Some of them are:

  • Teosyal
  • Stylage
  • Juvederm

The performance of each filler depends upon its varying grades of thickness and viscosity. A 1ml thick filler will give more volume and will last longer than a 1ml soft filler. Moreoever, the final decision of choosing the right filler depends upon your lip size, density, and desired goal.

Lip fillers are a blessing for people who could only wish for big, beautiful and luscious lips. Our lip fillers before and after images are convincing enough to help you make the right decision. Therefore, waste no more time in dreaming for those most wanted lips and become one of our successful storytellers!

    I was looking for lip filler treatments blogs to get an overview on what it is and how it is done and how effective it is after treatment. This blog has answered all my questions and doubts regarding lip filler treatments. I wanted to do a lip filler treatment last year but I was little dicey about it before but after reading your blog I feel like I can worry less about and give it a go.
    Thank you for sharing this blog with us. It is very informative and detailed in nature.
