Lip filler for lip augmentation is a dermal filler treatment in the lips. It can add volume to thin lips, correct uneven lip shape, smooth out smoker’s lines and be used to treat lip scars.
Lip fillers use Hyaluronic Acid which is a naturally occurring substance that exists in our skin and joints, but our production reduces with the ageing process.
Multiple factors affect the longevity of the results including how much was injected, where it was put in the face and how quickly your body metabolises it. As a general guideline, fillers last up to 18 months, but this varies given the above factors.
Treatment is gently placed through a fine sterile needle into the relevant areas
Effects can be seen immediately
Treatment can cause mild discomfort
Treatment lasts for up to 18 months
Treatment can be completed within as little as 30 minutes depending on the treatment areas
While injectables are minimally invasive and can be done in minutes, there are important things to keep in mind post-appointment. There’s nothing you need to do beforehand, and only a few restrictions after.
NOTE If you are on blood thinner or anti-inflammatory medications, or have an active skin infection please contact us before treatment as we may need to alter or delay your aesthetic treatment. We also advise not to have any filler treatment within 4 weeks of a COVID-19 vaccine due to a tiny risk of excessive swelling when having fillers and the vaccine in close succession.
