Give your lips a fuller, sexier pout with dermal fillers
Over the years men and women have used all kinds of injectables, massages, devices and plumping products to achieve lip volume and augment their lips. There are ways of permanently increasing the size of your lips, but we believe that temporary lip filler is a better option – after all, permanently plump lips could look strange ten years later when the dynamics of your face has changed again through natural ageing!
One of our most popular treatments for lips is injectable fillers (also known as dermal fillers). The longevity of your lip filler will depend on the product selected and factors unique to the individual. The procedure itself takes 30 minutes and can be carried out with numbing cream to reduce any discomfort.
Benefits of lip fillers to restore volume to your lips.
Enhance lip volume – There are several techniques for these treatments and Australian Skin Clinics can tailor the treatment to suit your desired outcome.
Define the lip line – Minimise those lines above and below the lips, which are exaggerated when pursing (and kissing!)
Professionally administrated – Every cosmetic injectable treatment is performed by our medical doctors and registered nurses, and requires a complimentary consultation beforehand.
How lip fillers work?
What to Expect?
Did you know Lip filler (dermal filler) is a naturally occurring substance?
Our expert doctors and registered nurses inject the aesthetic gel-based treatment into the lips, to give you a natural-looking result.
The aesthetic gel-based filler is based on a naturally occurring bodily substance, a sugar molecule. The function of this molecule is to bind water and act as a lubricant and shock absorbers in the parts of your body that are movable, as well as transporting nutrients and regulating your skin’s water balance. Dermal fillers revitalise and add volume to the treated area instantly by boosting this naturally occurring substance.
Optimising your lip filler results
Let’s work together to see the changes you deserve.
It is important to follow your doctor and nurse injectors pre and post preparation advice to get the best results out of your treatment. At your consultation, advise your injector if you are taking blood thinning medications. Immediately post-treatment, apply ice frequently (5-10 minutes every half hour) for up to 6 hours. LED Light Therapy may be used to help reduce any swelling or bruising.
Lip filler FAQs
how old do you have to be to get lip fillers?
We do not treat anyone under the age of 18 for cosmetic injectables. We do offer a wide-range of skin treatments suitable for your age group and we welcome you to visit our clinic with a parent or guardian to discuss any of these options.
I know I want my lips done, do I need a consultation?
Yes. As lip fillers require a doctor’s assessment and prescription, all clients are required to undertake a consultation. During this consultation, your injector will work with you and the doctor to discuss the best course for treatment and set expectations.
How often can you get lip filler?
It depends on the individual and the product used and the result you are after, but follow-up sessions are usually recommended at around every 6 to 12 months to maintain results.
Do lip fillers hurt?
This will really depend on the individual. The injections themselves feel like a slight pinch, and you may experience slight pressure or a ‘stinging’ sensation as the product is being injected.
Although the needle used is very small, slight bruising and bleeding can occur at the site of the injections. You can choose to have your lips numbed with a topical numbing cream and this is recommended for your first time.
When can I expect to see results?
You will see the results of your treatment almost immediately, however, it is very important to understand that your lips will be swollen. The degree of swelling is variable from person to person. You can’t predict how much swelling you will get until you have had them injected, so it is recommended not to have lip filler done if you have an important event a few days post treatment.
Can lip filler be removed?
It is possible to erase the dermal filler using an enzyme to dissolve the product, although it is extremely rare for us to need to do so. The reversal treatment comes with its own risks and should be discussed thoroughly with your doctor and treating nurse injector.
Should I massage my lips post treatment?
Your injector will advise you on how to massage your lips and how often to massage. Sometimes you may be asked not to massage them at all. It is extremely important to follow your injectors recommendations. If you are unsure when you get home, phone your treating clinic to get clarification.
Can I have lip filler while pregnant or breastfeeding?
It is not recommended to receive injectable treatments while pregnant or breastfeeding, as the risks are uncertain. At Australian Skin Clinics we are unable to treat you with cosmetic injectables if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, due to the lack of information available about the effect on the fetus. For more information please call us on 1300303014 and request to speak with one of our medically-trained registered doctor or nurse injectors.
