Lip fillers add plumpness to your lips and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, leaving you with fuller lips and a more youthful-looking appearance. This treatment option only involves injections of dermal fillers into your lips, so you can expect less downtime and risks compared to plastic surgery. It offers natural-looking results with a convenient treatment procedure, so many patients get curious about how much it costs.

So how much are lip fillers? The cost of your lip fillers depends on the type and brand of dermal fillers you use, your location, your treatment plan, and the expertise of your plastic surgeon. The average cost of lip fillers starts at $550 up to $750 per syringe, with Restylane having the lowest price and JUVÉDERM Vollure XC, JUVÉDERM Volbella XC, and Restylane Kysse being the more expensive options. To know more about your financial options, consult with your practitioner. 

Cost of Lip Fillers

Lip injection treatment is a reliable solution for enhancing lip volume, leaving you with fuller lips. Those considering getting plumper lips with dermal fillers might want to consider its cost and how long it lasts in case of options to maintain the results. Most of the recommended dermal fillers for lip augmentation are hyaluronic acid fillers, like:

These are only the average costs of dermal fillers used for lip augmentation. These prices can still change depending on several factors, like location, treatment plan, and experience of your practitioner. You should also consider how long the dermal fillers last to calculate the costs of your treatment relative to the duration of its effects. The specific results it offers for plumping your lips are also a factor in choosing the most suitable brand of dermal fillers for you.

Why Lip Fillers Cost This Much 

Dermal filler lip injections cost between $550 and $750 per syringe because of their sophisticated formulation and natural-looking results. While temporary, its effects can also last up to 2 years, depending on the patient’s metabolism and activity. It’s a minimally invasive procedure, so you won’t need any surgical equipment. 

Dermal fillers are carefully formulated to ensure compatibility with human tissues. They’re gel-like substances sourced from animal derivatives or synthetic materials. These products add volume to the treated area and boost collagen production, leaving you with elastic and radiant skin. 

The dermal filler type commonly used for lip enhancements is hyaluronic acid – this filler material mimics naturally occurring substances in the body and binds with water to add plumpness to the skin.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Your Lip Fillers

The prices mentioned above are only the average costs of dermal filler injections. Other factors may affect the final amount you’ll pay for your lip enhancement treatment. These factors include:

  • Geographic location
  • Dermal filler type
  • Treatment session 
  • Treatment area
  • Amount of dermal filler needed
  • Experience and reputation of the plastic surgeon

These are only some of the factors affecting the cost of your dermal filler lip injections. To determine the final amount you need for your lip enhancement, ensure seeking a reliable professional. 

Insurance Plans and Financial Options for Getting Lip Filler Injections

Dermal fillers are FDA-approved for lip enhancement, but insurance policies might not cover the costs of this procedure. Lip augmentation is one of the elective procedures for cosmetic purposes without medical benefits, so insurance companies don’t consider them medically necessary.

Even if insurance companies don’t usually cover lip filler injections, patients have other options to reduce costs. It’s good to consult with your practitioner to know more about payment plans for your lip augmentation treatment, as some reliable plastic surgeons provide options to make monthly payments throughout the treatment. 

Meanwhile, other medical spas or facilities also offer membership plans to patients, where you can get competitive promotions to minimize expenses from your lip filler treatment in the long run. You may also consult them for manufacturer rebates – some manufacturers offer programs where you earn points for your following cosmetic treatment.
