How they work
Lip fillers are a type of dermal filler. They are degradable sugar molecules consisting of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is naturally occurring and has many rejuvenating effects on the body. HA is responsible for binding water to the skin, and when injected, helps the lips to stay plump and hydrated.
During your procedure, your clinician will administer anaesthetic to ensure you have a comfortable and painless experience. There are a number of different techniques that can be used during a lip filler procedure, and your clinician will focus on the areas you most want to enhance. The filler will be injected through a thin needle that will not go deeper than two to three millimetres beneath the skin. Depending on your goals, the procedure will result in better symmetry, fuller lips, and improved shape and definition.
For most patients, the process can take between 15 and 30 minutes, although this can vary based on the amount and location of the filler.
About this treatment
Lip filler benefits
Full, voluminous lips are a common desire, and lip fillers can be a great option to help you achieve your desired lip shape and size. While some people wish for a more prominent, poutier lip shape, others may wish to create a more subtle enhancement that accentuates their natural beauty. Lip injections can also offer great results for people who wish to address lips that are naturally thin, reduce lines and wrinkles around the mouth area, or restore volume that has been lost over time.
Fuller lips can restore facial harmony and make the face appear bright and youthful. Depending on your current and desired lip shape, lip fillers can:
- Volumise lips that are naturally slim
- Redefine the borders of the lips
- Improve the size ratio between the top and bottom lip
- Improve symmetry and facial harmony
- Restore lost volume due to ageing
- Address lips that “disappear” when you smile
- Achieve an overall fuller, more ideal lip shape
Prior to treatment, it is a good idea to think about the look you wish to achieve. If you are undecided, a conversation with us at The Skin Boutique can help clarify what lip fillers can do for you.
Your private consultation
Getting lip fillers is a very personal decision that is different for everyone. The Skin Boutique is here to help you make the right choice for your body and advise a treatment plan that suits your needs.
Prior to your procedure, you will need to speak to us about your concerns and goals. We will discuss your reasons for seeking lip fillers, what you hope to achieve, and whether you have any underlying health conditions that could interfere with the procedure. It is important to discuss this information, as it will help us determine whether you are suitable and tailor the treatment to your needs. Suitable candidates are people who are:
- In good physical health
- Do not smoke
- Have a good outlook and realistic expectations
- Wish to enhance their lip volume
If you are unsure whether you are a good candidate for lip fillers, we can clarify this during your initial meeting with us. You will be able to ask any questions and gain a better understanding of what the procedure entails, including the before and after.
After your procedure, your lips may feel numb due to the anaesthetic, and you may have some swelling. This can result in an “overfilled” appearance, but rest assured that this effect is only temporary. We may give you ice to help reduce the swelling and soothe your treated areas.
Additionally, we will give you aftercare instructions, which are important for encouraging proper healing and achieving a good outcome. For example, you should avoid lipsticks and other lip products so as to avoid irritation. You should also refrain from touching, rubbing, or picking your lips, and drink plenty of water. For most patients, the swelling will subside within a week, leaving you with fuller, plumper lips.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are lip fillers permanent?
No, lip fillers are temporary and will usually last three to six months, depending on how your body responds to the procedure. The fillers are made of a natural substance that your body metabolises and absorbs over time. One of the advantages of temporary fillers is that you can adjust your look with age or as your preferences change.
What are lip fillers made of?
Lip fillers are a type of dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally found substance in the joints that works to retain moisture. When injected as filler, hyaluronic acid creates soft and natural-looking lip augmentations.
Are there any side effects?
Most patients do not have severe reactions, but mild side effects are common. This includes swelling, redness, and bruising. The side effects you experience will depend on the nature of your treatment, your general health, and whether you follow your clinician’s aftercare instructions.
Be sure to contact us if you notice any prolonged or significant side effects, and we will advise an appropriate treatment based on your symptoms.
When will I see the results?
Although your lips will appear immediately bigger, it will take some time for the swelling to subside. Most of the swelling should go away within 24 to 48 hours, but it may take a week to see the full results of your treatment.
