Lip Augmentation is a treatment utilised to add volume to the lip area. Dermal Filler is most commonly used to augment the lip area and this can also redefine the border of the lips or treat the lines around the mouth caused by smoking and over expression. Treatment is targeted to restore youthful volume to the lip and can also lift the lips.
There are an expanding range of dermal fillers available on the market that can be utilised to fill the lip area. The most common are Restylane, Juvederm and the Teosyal range. Permanent fillers are also enjoying a resurgence in the market but we tend to keep away from the permanent effects as they do not complement the ageing face.
Our Cosmetic Doctors provide you with doctor’s only prescription based medical grade numbing cream and use ice to constrict blood vessels to decrease sensation in the area.
Following that fillers are gently injected into the lips with combined aneasthetic. We avoid the use of aneasthetic blocks due to the increased complication rate and risk of trauma to the blood vessels. This makes our procedure hassle free and keeps you comfortable at all times.
After having lip fillers you sometimes can have minimal swelling and even bruising. This depends on person to person as they may react to the filler differently.
Generally if there is any swelling it should not last more than 48hours. At SKIN CLUB we limit the swelling by applying medical grade soothing balm that enhances blood flow and avoids bruises from being formed.
Swelling with lip filler occurs immediately and ice packs may be offered to reduce this and avoid bruising to the area. Patients are reminded to not touch the area and apply the ice wrapped in gauze every couple of hours. Lips may also dry out in the first 12-24 hours so using a lip balm can help.
The lip area is sensitive to swelling and rarely it may be up to a week whilst the swelling dissipates with full effects being seen within 2 weeks. At this stage the filler treatment will be reviewed by the practitioner. Small lumps are common at this time and can be massaged gently as they will absorb. If these lumps are larger or persist they can be corrected by the treating doctor.
