Enhance your pout beyond expectations – discover how to safely combine blush and fillers for fuller, more defined lips.

Full, plump lips are one of the most desirable facial features. If you feel your lips are too thin or uneven, you may be considering cosmetic enhancements like lip blush or fillers to add shape, volume and color. 

But can you get lip blush if you already have lip fillers? What about the other way around?

There are a few important considerations when combining these two popular procedures. In this blog post, we’ll explore everything you need to know about getting lip blush with fillers. 

You’ll learn the difference between these treatments, how to prepare for lip injections, if you can get them together or spaced apart, and the safety considerations. 

Read on for professional advice from the experts at Ethos Spa.

Understanding The Basics

Before diving into combining lip blush and fillers, let’s make sure you understand what each treatment does on its own.

What is the difference between lip blush and lip filler?

Lip blush, also known as lip stain or lip tattoo, adds semi-permanent color and definition to the lips. A technician carefully deposits pigment into the top layers of skin on and around the lips. Results mimic the appearance of wearing lipstick. The color will gradually soften over 1-3 years.

Lip fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are injections of hyaluronic acid gel to temporarily plump the lips. Fillers add volume, reduce fine lines, and smooth uneven texture and shape. Results last 6-12 months before the filler is absorbed by the body.

While both enhance the lips, blush is a cosmetic tattoo that changes color while fillers add volume. Many patients opt for both treatments to augment size, shape and color of the lips for a complete makeover.

Preparing For Lip Fillers

If you’re considering lip fillers, preparation is key for safe and beautiful results. Here are some tips:

What should I ask my doctor before getting lip filler?

  • What filler do you recommend for my goals?
  • Are you experienced injecting lips? How often do you perform this treatment?
  • What results can I expect in terms of look and duration?
  • What risks or side effects may occur?
  • How can I best care for my lips pre and post-treatment?

Being informed will lead to realistic expectations and a smooth process.

What is the least expensive lip filler available?

The most affordable options are hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm Volbella and Restylane Kysse. Per syringe pricing ranges $400-$800 depending on the provider. Choose an injector accordingly to your budget needs.

How can I find affordable lip filler?

  • Ask your provider about special packages or loyalty programs that offer reduced rates.
  • Sign up for email or text notifications about specials and discounts.
  • Ask if you can get pricing per half syringe for more moderate enhancement.
  • Inquire about loan financing or payment plans if available.
  • Consider having touch-up sessions spaced further apart to maximize results.

With some savvy scheduling and shopping around, you can find lip filler that fits your budget.

Combining Lip Fillers With Other Procedures

If you love your lip filler results, you may be interested in complementing them with lip blush for more definition. Here’s what you need to know:

Is it possible to get lip blush with filler?

Yes, you can absolutely get lip blush even if you’ve had filler injections. In fact, many patients find the combination beneficial. Lip blush accentuates shape and adds vibrant color, while the filler provides plumpness and structure.

Schedule your blush appointment at least 2 weeks after filler for the best results. Lips need time to heal and settle into the enhanced size and contours.

Can I have lip blush done after getting lip filler?

Certainly, lip blush is a great option after getting filler. Wait those 2 weeks for the filler to integrate, swelling to subside, and slight bruising to resolve. The pigment will then deposit optimally into smooth, stable skin for crisp lines and even saturation.

How long should I wait after getting lip filler to have lip blush?

The standard recommendation is 2 weeks between filler and blush appointments. At this point, your lips will be healed enough for the blush technique. If any swelling, tenderness, or bruising remains, hold off another week. Rushing into blush could displace pigment leading to unevenness.

What is the recommended waiting period after lip blush before getting lip filler?

Allow your lip blush to fully heal over 4-6 weeks before receiving lip filler. The pigment needs proper time to stabilize in the skin before undergoing any injections or stretching from filler. This prevents distortion or blurring of the blush results.

Lip Fillers And Lip Tattoos

If you already have a lip blush tattoo, can you still get lip fillers? Here are some key considerations:

Can I get lip fillers after a lip tattoo?Yes, it is certainly possible to get lip fillers even if you have existing lip blush. Just make sure your blush has had time to properly heal first. After 4-6 weeks, the pigment will be settled and stable enough to receive filler safely.
Is it possible to get a lip tattoo with fillers?Absolutely! Many patients love pairing their filler with a blush tattoo. For ideal results, schedule your blush appointment 2 weeks after getting filler. This allows time for complete healing and any swelling to subside before tattooing.
Can I get a lip tattoo after having lip fillers?Getting a lip blush tattoo after your filler is a great option. Again, be sure to wait at least 2 weeks. This gives your enhanced lips time to heal and integrate the filler properly before blush application.
Can I get a tattoo after having lip fillers?Yes, you can safely get lip blush tattooed after having filler injections. Simply schedule your tattoo appointment at least 2 weeks following your last filler session. 


We hope this article has helped explain everything you need to know about combining lip blush and lip filler treatments. While both can beautifully enhance your lips on their own, they work exceptionally well together.
