Lip fillers are a medical treatment that can be safely performed by experienced healthcare professionals, such as plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and cosmetic surgeons. To become a lip injector, medical professionals must receive training in dermal fillers. This includes classroom instruction on topics like injection techniques, pre- and post-treatment care, and patient selection criteria. Clinics in a medical spa environment provide comprehensive demonstrations of injectable cosmetics and real-world experience.
Nurse practitioners should read up on the condition to understand what procedures they can perform. It's also a good idea to contact pharmaceutical companies to make sure they can order the product. Dentists may attend courses for personal reasons or to incorporate injectable procedures into their practice. Physician assistants may work under the direction of a medical director who performs injectables, or they may be able to practice independently without a doctor located on site.

Most patients find that their results last between nine and 12 months before the body begins to absorb the dermal fillers used for lip augmentation. On average, healthcare providers insert 1 milliliter (ml) of lip filler into patients' lips, which is about one-fifth of a teaspoon. Lip fillers are an excellent choice for those who want to add more volume to their lips, improve symmetry, and restore lost volume. Patients should schedule follow-up appointments two weeks after the procedure is finished.
Healthcare providers may massage the lips gently to absorb the filler.
