It is a practically painless technique, however, we can apply topical anesthesia in the lip area prior to treatment. Next, we infiltrate hyaluronic acid to shape, restore volume and hydrate your lips.

Everything you need to know about this aesthetic procedure, performed in our Aesophy Malaga aesthetic clinic
What is lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid?
El lip filler with hyaluronic acid is an aesthetic procedure that involves injecting a hyaluronic acid gel into the lips to increase their volume, improve their shape, and smooth wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth.
Is the Hyaluronic Acid Lip Augmentation procedure painful?
Pain varies from person to person, but most patients report that the procedure is tolerable. Topical or local anesthesia may be applied to numb the lips prior to injection.
How long does hyaluronic acid last on the lips?
How long hyaluronic acid lip filler lasts depends on the brand and concentration of the product, as well as the individual metabolism rate of each patient. Typically, results last 6-12 months before further treatment is needed.
What areas can I treat with lip augmentation?
Hyaluronic acid is a type of dermal filler that is commonly used for lip augmentation. With this type of treatment, different areas of the lip can be treated to improve its appearance and definition. Here I present some of the areas that can be treated with hyaluronic acid:
- edge of the lip: Hyaluronic acid can be injected into the edge of the lip to define its contour and improve its shape. This approach can also improve the appearance of marionette lines that form at the corners of the lips.
- Superior lip: Hyaluronic acid can be injected into the upper lip to increase its volume and improve its shape. This approach can also improve the appearance of vertical lines that form above the upper lip.
- lower lip: Hyaluronic acid can be injected into the lower lip to increase its volume and improve its shape. This approach can also improve the appearance of horizontal lines that form on the bottom of the lips.
- filter: The philtrum is the triangular area between the upper lip and the nose. Hyaluronic acid can be injected into this area to improve its appearance and definition.
In general, hyaluronic acid can be used to treat different areas of the lips to achieve natural and enhanced results. It is important to speak with a doctor who specializes in cosmetic procedures to determine the right treatment for your specific needs and goals.
Most common treatments for lip augmentation
We carry out the infiltration in the mucosa and not in the edge, respecting the anatomy of the lip at all times to achieve a light and discreet outline.
Cupid's bow lip
Hyaluronic acid allows us to redraw contours like the cupid's bow, which is the curved area of the upper part of your lips. In this way, we manage to give them meatiness. The infiltration is carried out below the edge of the lip.
Lip augmentation allows us to correct asymmetries, thus achieving a proportionate and balanced appearance to your lips. Our maxim is that less is more, so we recommend a second session to see if it is necessary to touch up or infiltrate more hyaluronic acid?
lip wrinkle reduction
Hyaluronic acid corrects wrinkles that form around the mouth. It also rehydrates and improves the texture and tone of your lips.
When will I see the result of the lip augmentation and how long does the effect last?
Immediate results since it is a substance that captures water and rehydrates the area. The duration of its effect will depend on each case, however, the usual thing is that the result is extended to 9 months or a year.
What are the advantages of having a lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid?
- It is a safe treatment because it is a substance that your body has naturally and therefore does not reject it.
- It's a painless process and does not require surgery or hospitalization. We only use a topical anesthetic prior to the session.
- Immediate results without side effects
- Non-permanent results. The effects of hyaluronic acid are not permanent and last between 6 and 12 months.
Side effects of lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid lips
Common side effects include swelling, redness, bruising, and tenderness around the injection site. Regarding the possible side effects and complications of lip augmentation, it is important to note the following:
Swelling: It is normal to experience some swelling after lip augmentation, especially in the first few hours or days after the procedure. This can cause a full or exaggerated look to the lips, but usually subsides within a few days.
Redness and bruising: It is also common to experience redness and bruising of the lips after augmentation, especially if a dermal fillers injection technique was used. These side effects usually go away in a few days.
Infection: Although rare, lip augmentation can cause infection in the treated area. Symptoms can include pain, redness, swelling, and fever. If you suspect you may have an infection, it's important to contact your doctor immediately.
Allergic reactions: Some people may have an allergic reaction to the filler used in lip augmentation. Symptoms can include itching, redness, swelling, and shortness of breath. If you have any symptoms of an allergic reaction, seek medical attention immediately.
Implant displacement: In the case of permanent implants, there is a risk that they will displace from their original place, which can cause deformity or asymmetry in the lips. If this occurs, an additional procedure may be necessary to correct the problem.
It is important that you speak with your doctor prior to the procedure to fully understand the risks and potential complications of lip augmentation, and for specific recommendations on how to minimize these risks.
These side effects usually go away within a few days after the procedure.
Are there any precautions I should take before or after the Hyaluronic Acid Lip Augmentation procedure?
It's important to tell your doctor about any allergies or sensitivities you have before undergoing the procedure. It is also recommended to avoid the consumption of alcohol and certain medications that may increase the risk of bleeding before the procedure. After the procedure, it is recommended to avoid direct sun exposure and strenuous activities for a couple of days to reduce the risk of bruising or swelling.
