Lip Augmentation


Full lips play an important role in enhancing facial beauty, which is why, for many people, fuller and more sensuous lips come high on their wish list. A simple, safe, temporary dermal filler treatment using a natural substance found in the body can add volume and definition to enhance small, thin lips. This procedure can also balance out asymmetric lips or reduce the appearance of fine, vertical lines.

An injectable dermal filler treatment is the most commonly used method of lip augmentation. There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected into your lips and around your mouth. The most commonly used fillers today are products that contain hyaluronic acid, a soft, smooth gel made from a natural substance found in the body. The results will look and feel completely natural, leaving a smooth and youthful appearance.

 

Uses of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Hyaluronic acid fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:

• Shape
• Structure
• Volume

The effects typically last from 6 to 12 months, after which more injections are recommended to retain the volume of your lips.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Once injected, the gel in the filler supports and shapes the tissues of the lips.

The benefits of a hyaluronic acid filler treatment include:

  • Control over lip volume. The amount of substance injected can be controlled, enabling the medical practitioner to have better control over how much lip volume is created.
  • Timing of treatments. The injections can be given gradually over the course of several appointments until the desired results are achieved.
  • Bumps dissolve easily. Any uneven surfaces created by movement of the lips can be dissolved easily.

  • Lasting results. The results are reasonably long-lasting, but not permanent.

 

The Procedure


  • Prior the treatment: Topical anaesthetic will be applied 15 to 30 minutes prior the treatment to diminish any discomfort.
  • During the treatment: Dermal filler is injected at precise locations into your skin and massaged to smooth the product. During the procedure, you will be fully awake, and you will be given a mirror to enable you to see the results as your practitioner completes the treatment.
  • Post-treatment: You should avoid touching or applying makeup to the treated area for 6 hours in order to prevent infection. Our Clinic Coordinator will give you specific post-treatment instructions on the day of your treatment.

The results are immediate and last from 6-12 months. As the results are relatively temporary, adjustments can be made over time, so you will always retain a natural look.

 

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions


Q. Is the procedure painful?

We understand the lips are a sensitive area. A range of anesthetics such as an ice pack and numbing cream can be provided depending upon your preference. In addition, we use products that contain an anaesthetic, making the treatment relatively comfortable. Our highly experienced medical professionals will ensure that your treatment is as comfortable as possible.

Q.Will I see the results immediately?

After the injection, the lips often become a little swollen, so the result immediately after the treatment may not be the final one. The swelling typically resolves spontaneously within a couple of days. To achieve the optimal result, a touch-up treatment 2 to 4 weeks after the initial session is recommended, which will also add to the duration of the treatment effect.

Q. How long will the results last?

The results generally last from 6 to 12 months. The longevity of these filler products is variable, and individual results may vary. We can create a personalized plan for regular follow-up treatments to maintain the initial result. Our treatment provides a long-lasting but not permanent result, leaving you the option of refining your treatment to suit your individual needs over time.

Q. What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are products frequently used to correct scarring, wrinkles, and other depressions in the skin. They are usually soft, gel-like substances designed to enable injection into the skin for purposes of improving the appearance. Generally, they consist of several types of either natural materials or synthetic, man-made categories. They have been developed to various standards, depending on the level of usage.

Q. Which type of dermal filler is used for lip enhancement? 

The most common dermal filler used for the lip area is hyaluronic acid, one of nature’s most versatile and fascinating substances. It is found throughout the body, as well as in most other living organisms, and has many functions, including giving our skin elasticity and volume, thus creating a youthful appearance. Dermal fillers consist of sterile gels containing non-animal, cross-linked hyaluronic acid. They contain no human or animal DNA and have the best safety profile of all the fillers currently on the market, as they are the only type of filler that is reversible.

Q. Who should NOT use a dermal filler? 

Women who are pregnant or breast feeding should not use a dermal filler.

Q. What are the possible cosmetic side effects? 

You may have some swelling for 24 to 72 hours, especially with lip injections. After treatment, some common injection-related reactions might occur, such as swelling, redness, pain, itching, discoloration and tenderness at the injection site. These typically resolve spontaneously within 2 to 10 days. Mild bruising or a slight blush might appear at the injection site immediately following treatment, possibly lasting 2 to 5 days.

How can I avoid bruising? 

To avoid swelling and bruising, you should:

  • Not take aspirin, ibuprofen, or any anti-inflammatory medication for 1 week before and 2 days after treatment.
  • Not take vitamin E (multivitamin OK) or St. John’s Wort for 2 to 3 days before or after treatment.
  • Avoid exercise, except for walking, for 24 hours after the procedure.
