Full lips are a feature of youthful attractiveness but as we age, the body’s natural substances like collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid – all of which give skin structure and volume – gradually decrease. By using dermal fillers we are able to enhance the lip’s shape and restore lost volume to ensure results that both look and feel natural. Visit one of our cosmetic clinics in Melbourne to find out more about the possibilities of lip enhancement (also known as lip fillers and lip augmentation).
HOW LONG DO LIP FILLERS LAST?
Over time, the body naturally breaks down the hyaluronic acid (naturally occurring sugar) so the effects of these gels generally last between 6 to 18 months depending on the dermal filler type and the individual’s metabolism.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING AND AFTER TREATMENT?
Before receiving any treatment you will consult with one of our experienced doctors and a full facial assessment and treatment plan is mapped out for you.
Lip fillers do not hurt. The dermal filler that we use will contain an anaesthetic in the gel to ensure extra comfort and the procedure itself only takes a few minutes.
Immediately after the treatment your lip filler side effects may be the feeling of numbness in the lips and you may have a bit of swelling and tenderness that can last for a few days.
Even through bruising is uncommon there is a chance it can occur so it may be a good idea not to undergo treatment immediately before an important event.
