What are dermal lip fillers?
Dermal lip fillers consist of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring component of soft tissues in the body. Small volumes of the injectable gel-like material are administered in several places within the lips to enhance and define the lip shape to your desired look.
What happens before the procedure?
No treatment is performed without consultation to assess your medical condition, establish your treatment goals and set realistic expectations of the procedure.
After an in-depth discussion with our specialist, we will recommend the best treatment options for your lip shape and size based on your goals. We will also explain the procedure fully to you and answer any questions.
If you decide to proceed, we will check your medical history and take a series of photos, mapping the injection sites on the lips. The procedure can be performed that day but bear in mind the following tips to avoid swelling and bruising:
- Avoidaspirin, Excedrin, ibuprofen, Aleve and Advil for one week before treatment (paracetamol is OK)
- AvoidVitamin E or St. John’s Wort for 2-3 days before
- Taking arnica tablets up to two weeks before treatment can help
You should also avoid smoking before your treatment, as it increases the risk of infection. Also, avoid wearing makeup if you intend to sit for dermal fillers that day.
How can lip fillers help?
Lip fillers are not only used to add volume to the lips but can also correct many perceived aesthetic issues with lips, including:
- Thin lips
- Straight lips
- Asymmetric lips
- Vertical “smoker” lines above the lips
- Other fine lines around the lips
Using fillers, a skilled cosmetic doctor can create classic lips, “Cupid’s bow” lips, more masculine lips, and more.
Are lip fillers painful?
It depends on your pain threshold. As with any injection, patients may feel some slight discomfort during the procedure. A topical numbing cream will be applied to the lips 30 mins before the procedure is conducted to elevate some of the discomfort.
How long will the procedure last?
10- 45 minutes, depending on the desired aesthetic look
How much filler can I have in my lips?
That all depends on the look, you want. If you have never had lip filler before, the maximum volume we will administer is 1mL, we will review if more filler is required to achieve the desired look after 6 weeks. If you already have filler in your lips, usually only 0.5mL is required to enhance the definition or correct asymmetry.
What happens after my lip augmentation?
As with any cosmetic procedure, a short recovery period is necessary to monitor your condition and ease your body back to a normal condition.
Lip fillers are considered relatively minor procedures and very rarely result in complications. To ease the recovery process, your lips will be gently massaged.
Our team will provide you with full aftercare instructions regarding exercise, medications, makeup, lip care, etc.
Are there any risks or side effects?
No cosmetic procedure is 100 per cent risk-free, but very few adverse reactions occur with dermal lip filler treatments.
A lip filler procedure is considered a very safe and effective way to augment your lips without surgery or an invasive procedure — provided it is administered by a qualified cosmetic practitioner.
Hyaluronic acid (the material used in dermal fillers) occurs naturally in the body, so the chance of an allergic reaction is very low, and no allergy test is necessary before the procedure.
Though the risk of complications is slight, you should be aware of the following:
- Some patients experience some redness, tenderness, swelling and/or bruising around the injection sites, but this usually dissipates rapidly (generally within five days).
- Injecting too much filler into lips can look highly unnatural, resulting in “duck lips” and hidden teeth — so choose your cosmetic doctor very carefully to prevent this.
- Asymmetry is a rare cosmetic side effect of the procedure, but the risk is reduced if a skilled cosmetic professional administers the injections.
- Lumps and bumps on the lips may last for up to 72 hours after the injections but usually correct themselves (in rare cases, they last for weeks if injections were too superficial or too much filler was injected in a location, but this can be eased with lip massage).
- Rare medical side effects include nerve damage, infections, skin colour changes, cold sores or herpes simplex virus 1 outbreaks and vascular occlusion.
The risk level for complications and unsatisfactory results increases if you select an inexperienced, non-reputable practitioner for the procedure.
Also, please bear in mind that we do not provide injected lip filler procedures to anyone under the age of 18.
What is lip filler migration?
Lip filler migration occurs when lip fillers spread unintentionally over time, causing an imbalanced appearance of the lips or the lack of a defined border between the lip edge and above and/or below the lip border.
The risk greatly decreases if your procedure is performed by a suitably qualified cosmetic professional as it usually occurs due to inexperience (too much filler being injected), the use of cheap branded dermal filler) or poor after-care instructions for patients.
How long do lip fillers last?
Lip enhancement treatment can last 6-18 months or longer before requiring a top-up. This usually depends on how fast the body metabolises the filler and the quality of the product used.
The fuller appearance of your lips is more likely to last longer if you are younger and have more than one filler procedure. Permanent lip fillers are not recommended for safety reasons.
