Any time you get Botox or filler you can get a bruise, so plan your appointment around any big events. Lip filler can bruise and swell the most since this is a delicate area.

Filler is made out of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally produced and metabolized by your body. Everyone is a little different but on average lips last around 6-9 months and other areas of the face last around a year. This will also vary depending on the type of filler used.
Our injector almost always recommends a full syringe in the lips. Most clients who start with a half syringe are back within a few weeks for more! Keep in mind that one syringe is only 1/5th of a teaspoon. For cheeks almost everyone needs 2 syringes to start.
The most common areas for Botox are the forehead, the "11's (between your eyebrows), and the crows feet around your eyes. Filler can be used in many areas of the face including, cheeks, smile lines, chin, jaw line, lips, and temples.
