If you’re wondering what the difference is between lip blush vs. fillers, here’s a quick primer. Lip fillers give you temporarily plumper lips by injecting them with a dermal filler. Lip blushing enhances your lips’ natural shade by adding pigment to make them subtly bolder and brighter and more full with shape adjustment. Both treatments can help you achieve the gorgeous lips of your dreams, but you should always get the lip blush first.
Any specialist will give you the same answer if you ask about getting lip blush before or after fillers. The first reason has to do with how long each treatment lasts. Lip blushing can last up to three years without any touch-ups. Once you get the treatment, all you have to do is enjoy your beautifully tinted lips and get a touch up every year or so. On the other hand, lip fillers aren’t quite as long-lasting and will require multiple touch-ups in the amount of time it takes for your lip blush to fade.
The second (and perhaps more important) reason to get your lip blush before fillers is that lip fillers will change the shape of your lips. This means that lip blush applied over lip fillers might not look right once the fillers have faded forcing you to continue to get them. In a worst-case scenario, your lip blush might even appear skewed or warped in your face’s natural state, requiring further touch-ups. A professional cosmetic artist will always treat unaltered, natural skin, so definitely schedule your lip blushing appointment before the lip fillers!
