In today’s world lip fillers have emerged as a popular cosmetic treatment, offering a non-invasive solution to enhance lip volume and shape. Delve into the world of dermal lip fillers, exploring their benefits, procedure, safety considerations, and more.

What Are Dermal Lip Fillers?

Dermal lip fillers, also known as lip injections or lip augmentation, are cosmetic procedures designed to enhance the size, shape, and fullness of the lips. These fillers typically consist of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body that helps maintain hydration and volume in the skin.

Benefits of Dermal Lip Fillers:

  • Enhanced Lip Volume: Dermal lip fillers can add volume to thin or naturally small lips, creating a fuller appearance.
  • Improved Lip Symmetry: Fillers can help correct asymmetry or imbalances in lip shape, resulting in a more harmonious and balanced facial profile.
  • Rejuvenation: As we age, lips may lose volume and definition. Lip fillers can restore plumpness and smooth out fine lines around the mouth.
  • Results: At Esteem Clinic, our experienced Nurses can tailor the treatment to achieve the desired level of enhancement, whether it’s subtle augmentation or a more dramatic transformation.

The Dermal Lip Filler Procedure:

  1. Consultation: During the initial consultation, you’ll discuss your aesthetic goals, medical history, and any concerns with your Nurse. They’ll assess your lips’ anatomy and recommend a personalised treatment plan.
  2. Preparing for Treatment: Before the procedure, your lips will be numbed with a topical anaesthetic to minimize discomfort during the injections. Your Nurse will also discuss the type of filler and the amount needed to achieve your desired results.
  3. Injection Process: Using a fine needle or cannula, the filler is strategically injected into specific areas of the lips to add volume and shape. Your provider may massage the area to ensure the filler is evenly distributed.
  4. Aftercare: Following the procedure, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, or redness, which typically resolves within a few days. Your Nurse will provide instructions for post-treatment care, including avoiding strenuous activities and certain medications.
  5. Follow-Up: Depending on the filler used, results can last anywhere from six months to a year or more. At Esteem, we always recommend booking in for a two week follow-up appointment to assess the outcome and discuss any additional treatments if desired.
