Lip Filler FAQ


lip fillers

If you’re curious about how lip fillers work and whether they’re actually effective, you’re in the right place. Every day, we get DMs from our amazing community with queries about our bestselling needleless lip filler, how it compares to lip injections, and what the benefits are.

What Is Needleless Lip Filler?

Needleless lip filler is a cosmetic treatment alternative to traditional fillers that are applied via injection from a medical professional. Our Lip Filler pen increases your natural lip volume using hyaluronic acid, delivered via our multiphasic vesicles and Subtopical Plumping Technology™ and enhances your natural lip shape without an invasive cosmetic procedure.

How Long Do Needleless Fillers Last?

Consistency is key! While other types of injectable fillers dissolve over time and require multiple appointments with your dermatologist or plastic surgeon, you can apply a swipe of our Lip Filler pen a few times a day to maintain your results. (See our detailed directions for optimal results.) This way, you never have to worry about squeezing in an appointment to keep your filler fresh. 

What Is the Difference Between Needleless Lip Filler and Lip Injections?

Our needleless Lip Filler uses Subtopical Plumping Technology™ to deliver a boost of hyaluronic acid to your lips instead of a needle, like traditional injectables. During a lip injection appointment, you often have to wait for your lips to be numbed. Following numbing, your provider injects your lips with a thin filler needle. Side effects can include bruising, bleeding, and excessive swelling.

With our Lip Filler, you can get plumper lips at home without numbing, needles, busy waiting rooms, or embarrassing tell-tale signs. Instead of an injection, we utilize Subtopical Plumping Technology™ to deliver high-quality hyaluronic acid hydration to your lips.

What Are the Benefits of Needleless Lip Filler?

By opting for a needleless product, you avoid the downtime that can come with other lip procedures. Plus, you never have to worry about fitting lip filler appointments or recovery time into your schedule. Pop our Lip Filler into your bag and swipe it on on the go, or make it a part of your at-home self-care routine.

How Does Ourself Needleless Lip Filler Work?

Ourself’s Lip Filler achieves needle-free lip plumping results using new technology developed by our team of biotech scientists. In our clinical trials, 100% of our Lip Filler users had fuller lips in just a few weeks.

How Does the Ourself Lip Filler Pen Work?

Our hyaluronic acid-based Lip Filler treatment pen uses Subtopical Plumping Technology™ and patent-pending multiphasic vesicle delivery system to infuse plumping hyaluronic acid into the lips. As we age, our skin’s production of hyaluronic acid decreases, which can lead to lines, wrinkles, and a loss of fullness in the lips.

We created the Lip Filler pen to provide targeted results to your lips using different sizes of hyaluronic acid molecules. These ingredients provide fuller, more defined lips while smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.

Additionally, we use a lip color enhancer made from vitamin B3 to give your lips a youthful burst of color. Our Lip Filler pen aims to give you the best version of the natural appearance of your lips quickly and easily—without plastic surgery.

How Do You Give Yourself Lip Fillers at Home?

Applying our Lip Filler pen is as easy as applying your favorite lip color, lip balm, or lip gloss. To dispense the product, click the pen. Then, glide a layer of the product onto both your top lip and lower lip inside your natural lip line. Make sure your lips are clean, dry, and free of any other products.

If you are applying multiple layers of Lip Filler, allow each layer to absorb before proceeding with the next. Once your lips have fully dried, you can apply our hydrating Lip Conditioner on top for a glassy finish.

How Long Does Lip Filler Last?

We recommend daily application of our Lip Filler to ensure consistent fullness. You’ll jumpstart your fresh pout by applying five layers of the pen morning and night for five days, then swipe on one layer three times daily for the best results. Consistency is key to maintainence.

What Is the Difference Between the Hyaluronic Pen and Filler Injections?

There’s one sharp difference between a hyaluronic pen like Ourself’s Lip Filler and injectable dermal filler: the needle! Instead of using a sharp object to deliver hyaluronic acid to the lips, our Lip Filler uses Subtopical Plumping Technology™ to deliver the perfect amount of HA where your lips need it most using multiphasic vesicles.

What Are the Benefits of a Hyaluronic Pen Treatment?

There are several benefits to using our Lip Filler pen over injectable options. First, an injectable filler can come with its fair share of complications as well as a longer recovery time than our hyaluronic acid pen. Many people—especially those with sensitive skin—might experience pain, bruising, and swelling after lip injections, and even more severe side effects and health risks can occur.

Unlike injectable filler, our Lip Filler includes a lip color enhancer derived from vitamin B3 to boost your lip’s natural color and definition. Additionally, our Lip Filler quickly absorbs into the lips, so you can follow it up with your favorite Lip Conditioner or lipstick on top without having to worry about interfering with cosmetic injection sites. 

How Long Does It Take for a Ourself Lip Filler To Work?

We recommend jumpstarting your lip-plumping journey by using Ourself’s Lip Filler pen twice a day for the first five days. You should apply five layers of the Lip Filler in the morning and five at night for rapid results.

After your jumpstart phase, you can apply one layer of the Lip Filler three times a day to maintain a plumper pout. If you are looking to even out your lip size and gain more symmetrical lips, you can focus your application on whichever lip is in need of a boost. 

Is Ourself Lip Filler More Affordable Than Filler Injections?

People can visit a board-certified dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or another medical professional in the beauty industry for dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid and collagen injections can be inserted into the lips as well as other treatment areas of the face. Some people opt for facial fillers in spots like forehead wrinkles or the nasolabial folds. 

Often, hyaluronic filler injections like Juvederm or Restylane can cost hundreds and even thousands of dollars per session since injectables like this are priced per syringe, and patients often need multiple syringes to see lip augmentation or lip enhancement results. Other injectable options include a Botox lip flip, which can also become pricey over time.

By using Ourself’s Lip Filler and Lip Filler Refills, you can save time and money on restoring the lips you once knew at home with no downtime.

What Is Natural Lip Filler?

While lip fillers are a subtle and effective way to enhance your natural appearance, some fillers take it too far. Unfortunately, this can result in fillers that look unnatural. When this happens, it can have the unintended effect of detracting from the patient’s natural beauty.

Sometimes this happens because of certain ingredients within the fillers. While most filler ingredients are safe across the board, ingredients based on natural substances can increase your chances of getting a natural-looking pout.

What Are the Benefits of Natural Lip Fillers?

You can get natural-looking lips by using an ingredient that is produced within the body, like hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is made up of chains of small molecules of different sizes and weights. Using our multiphasic vesicles, our Lip Filler is able to deliver the right size molecule where you need it the most.

Where Can I Find Natural Lip Fillers?

Our Lip Filler is crafted without phthalates, synthetic fragrances, or parabens. It’s also cruelty-free, so you can get clinical-level, science-backed results without animal testing.

One of the main ingredients in our Lip Filler is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring molecule within the body that can provide natural-looking results. Since the body produces hyaluronic acid on its own, it is safe and effective.

Can You Get Lip Fillers if You Have Allergies?

When it comes to skincare sensitivity, we always recommend exercising caution. Avoid using our Lip Filler pen if you’re allergic to any of its ingredients. Upon first use of our Lip Filler pen, apply a test layer to the lips. Allow the product to sit for fifteen minutes before proceeding with additional layers. 

If you experience irritation such as burning or tingling for longer than a few minutes, rinse off your lips with water and consult your physician. Avoid using our Lip Filler on chapped or broken lips, and never use it on other areas of the face, especially the eye area.

The Bottom Line

If you’re curious about your options when it comes to lip fillers, consider Ourself’s Lip Filler—no injections required. Our Lip Filler pen contains hyaluronic acid to moisturize your lips for a dewy, plump appearance without the pain. Injectable lip fillers come with a range of potential side effects like bruising and swelling, and our Lip Filler pen makes for an affordable and painless alternative.
