2ml Lip Filler Before And After? A lip filler is a type of cosmetic treatment used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, as well as enhance the shape, size and structure of the lips.
Dermal fillers are made from a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural compound found in our skin that is responsible for hydration and volume. As we age, our bodies produce less of it. This is why the skin begins to wrinkle and sag.
The 2ml lip filler treatment works by adding HA to your lips, resulting in hydrated and plump lips for up to 12 months!
2ml lip filler treatments take around 30 minutes to perform, and do not require any downtime afterwards. You will be able to go back to day-to-day activities straight away!
Lip Filler Before and After Photos
Dr. Rivkin is a board-certified dermatologist with years of experience and a special interest in improving his patients’ lips. He uses carefully selected fillers to enhance the shape, size, and volume of his patients’ lips, making them look fuller and more natural.
Below are before-and-after pictures of some of Dr. Rivkin’s actual patients who have received lip injections with cosmetic fillers like Juvéderm® Ultra XC, Juvéderm Volbella®, Restylane®, and Belotero Balance®. Lip augmentation with fillers can be used to increase the size of thin lips, improve the definition of the border, create symmetry between uneven lips, or reduce vertical lines around the mouth (smoker’s lines).
Before & After Photos
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips. These photos demonstrate lip augmentation techniques performed by American Board of Cosmetic Surgery-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ditesheim. Your results may vary.
I have had lip fillers before, but from a student doctor who said she was qualified. She definitely wasn’t. I was left with uneven and very over filled lips. Needless to say, I was very apprehensive about having them done again. I have been to see Dr Leah a few times now and every time, she has managed to make me look natural, but with the perfect amount of volume. Her skill is second to none and I would highly recommend her.
As with any cosmetic procedure, there are risks. One of the most common side effects of lip fillers is swelling and bruising. While these effects are usually temporary, in some cases they can last up to a week or more.
The number of injections you need will depend on the extent of your treatment and your desired results. For example, if you want to achieve a plumper pout you’ll likely require more filler than someone who wants a subtle enhancement.
Because lip fillers are temporary, it’s important to schedule follow-up treatments every few months for optimal results
Is 2 ml a Lot Of Lip Filler?
I went into the salon and had 2ml of lip filler in my lips and I think they are too big, is this a lot?
I’ve been an experienced injector for over 20 years and have done literally thousands of procedures. How much is injected depends on how big you want them to be, how big your lips are, how much volume your lips can hold, and if you want it to be gradual or all at one time. Not all lip fillers are the same either. In some cases, less is better!
It’s not the amount that matters but rather the skill of the injector. The most important thing is that you find someone who has a lot of experience with lip injections, knows what they’re doing, listens to what you want and doesn’t try to talk you into anything else. They should be able to tell you exactly how much they will use and what kind of results you can expect.
Lip fillers is one of the most requested procedures for people in their twenties. The procedure simply involves injecting a gel like substance into your lips to add volume and shape. At times, you may have been concerned about the amount of filler being used and what is the ideal amount of lip filler that can be injected?
You might have heard different opinions from family and friends on the number of syringes you can get injected. At first, it can be daunting to decide whether 1 ml or 2ml is the ideal amount for you.
The quantity of lip filler that you should get injected totally depends on your individual goals and your budget but there are also other factors involved which we explain below.
In my practice, I use 2 ml as a maximum amount per lip. If you want to go larger it is usually a good idea to go for a second procedure. With that said, too much filler has been injected. You may not even need the entire 1 ml now. I would recommend dissolving the filler in the lips and waiting a few weeks to see what you think. You might be surprised how nice your lips look with less filler.
I had 1 ml of lip filler. It was amazing! I love the way my upper lip looks now, and I would recommend to anyone!
I can only speak from my experience as a patient, but I had 1ml of Juvederm Ultra plus injected into my lips. My doctor did use numbing cream and ice packs during the procedure. It was not painful at all, in fact it was pretty much painless. I didn’t have any bruising or swelling that lasted more than 2 days.
I found it quite easy to smile, drink and eat after the procedure, with no discomfort whatsoever. There was no downtime for me afterwards.
A conservative approach is best. Your lips should still look natural. You should choose the doctor who will do the treatments. I would NOT want someone who is not a physician to inject anything in my face, let alone fillers.
Having said that, you have to be realistic about your expectations.
2mL of filler will give you a moderate augmentation of your lips. It is not so much that it will make you look like you had lip surgery.
Choose your filler carefully – some are softer than others and therefore not ideal for lip augmentation as they tend to lump and migrate.
Typically, three 0.55mL syringes of filler are used to achieve the best results. There is a lot of variation from patient to patient in terms of how much filler it will take to get the desired appearance and result. While I would not say that 2mL is “too much,” it also may not be enough for your desired results. For many patients, 1mL will be enough, but for others 3mL or more may be needed. The key is achieving balance, harmony, and proportion with your facial features.
When performing lip injections, the most important thing is to find an experienced provider who you trust and who takes the time to listen to your personal goals and concerns. Best wishes!
Does 1 Ml of Lip Filler Make a Difference?
1 ml of lip filler is a significant amount, whether it’s Juvederm or Restylane.
The most I recommend in one treatment is 1.5 mls.
Here’s the thing: 1 ml of filler will make some difference, but two treatments of 1 ml will make more difference than one treatment of 2 mls. Filler is not safe to use all at once.
I have just had 1ml of lip filler into my top lip today and I can’t see any difference at all, should I be able to see some kind of difference, even if it’s subtle? I’m a bit concerned that it won’t make much difference at all.
I did have 0.5ml about 6 months ago, but didn’t notice much of a change then either and I don’t know if this is because it was too little and I’m expecting the same from the 1ml or whether something else is wrong. I have seen some examples on here where people have had 1ml and you can see quite a difference, so I was expecting to see something today!
That’s the question I’m asked most often at our clinic.
The answer is, it depends on the person. As cosmetic doctors, we see a lot of different people, with a lot of different lips!
Generally speaking, 1 ml of dermal filler is a minimum amount to make a difference to lips. If you have fairly full lips already, then 1 ml may be enough to perfect them and give you that ‘lipstick bleed’ effect where your lip colour slightly bleeds past your lip line.
If you have smaller lips, then 1 ml might not be enough to give you the volume you desire. It all depends on how much your lips change with the filler. Most of the time, we can tell from examining your lips in clinic whether 1ml will be enough for you.*
This is a great question. The difference between 1mL and 2mL of lip filler is that 1mL will add a little volume to the lips, while 2mL will add more. Both options are great for patients who would like a subtle change in their appearance.
The amount of filler you need depends on your personal goals. For some patients, 1 mL is plenty for their lips and they may even want to start at half a milliliter on the first visit. In other cases, patients may want to add 2 mL to their lips for a significant change.
In order to achieve your ideal look, it’s important to discuss your desired results with an experienced injector before treatment. A good injector will understand exactly how much filler you need to achieve your desired look without going overboard.
During your consultation, be sure to tell your injector if you have any concerns or questions about the amount of filler you may need. It’s also important to keep in mind that everyone heals differently and that multiple treatments may be necessary depending on the type of filler used and the area treated.
The short answer is yes.
One can see a difference with 1/2 ml of any hyaluronic acid filler (Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero) injected into the lips. Just 1/2 ml will produce a nice result.
The key to a great result is to getting the right amount of filler in the right place. Filler should be placed carefully to avoid bumps or lumps and to address asymmetry or shape concerns that exist.
The amount that you need relies on the result you would like to achieve and the level of enhancement that you are comfortable with. A good practitioner will be able to advise you on this. I perform lip augmentation using dermal fillers, usually Juvederm Ultra or Restylane. Both of these can be dissolved using Hyalase if the effect is too strong or if you simply change your mind later down the line.
If you would like a subtle enhancement then 0.5ml would be sufficient, 1ml would give a moderate enhancement and 2ml – 3ml would be classified as a strong result. Volbella is a wonderful product for subtle enhancements as it is very soft and smooth in texture and gives a very natural result. The cost depends on the clinic and may vary from £250 to £500 per ml.
When it comes to lip augmentation, the most popular option is with hyaluronic acid fillers.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally occurring in the body. It helps add volume and hydration to your skin. There are several brands of hyaluronic acid lip fillers on the market, including Juvederm, Restylane, and others.
The most commonly used products for lip enhancement are:
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC with Lidocaine
JUVÉDERM® Ultra 2
