What is a Lip Filler?

Dermal Fillers are clear gels made from a substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is found naturally in the body, where its main role is to attract water and provide hydration to the skin. Our levels of HA diminish as we age. Dermal Fillers are designed to resemble your own body’s natural HA, and are used to help softly enhance your facial features.

Why have Lip Fillers?

Whether happy or sad, peaceful or contemplative, there’s no facial feature as expressive as your lips. For thousands of years. We’ve been fascinated by them. And while beauty ideals may vary, lip qualities such as softness and smoothness remain constantly desirable.

Lip Filler FAQs

People may feel instant results after their first treatment, but collagen remodelling is a lengthy process and collagen starts forming around week 6 and takes months, so there is a reason you have multiple sessions at designated timeframes. Great results can start to be seen after about 3 months, however full tissue remodelling goes on for 6-12 months.

Skin quality, age, lifestyle factors, general health, sun exposure, and homecare regimes all affect treatment outcome. We recommend you stay out of the sun and wear SPF daily, while following a prescribed homecare regime consisting of cosmeceutical grade ingredients that support your skin health and promote collagen production.

Depending on your concerns and the quality of your skin, you may need a course of treatments usually consisting of 4-6 treatments about 4 weeks apart.

For best results, we may require you to be prepped on a series of actives at home for a minimum of 2 weeks prior to treatment to ensure your skin is functioning optimally to ensure the best possible outcome. These actives may include AHA’s, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid.

The inflammatory response (which we want to see- this is what builds our new collagen), makes our skin look sunburnt after the treatment. Redness, tightness and tenderness are all normal. There may also be some dots of blood under the skin. Redness fades to pinkness over night, and your skin is usually back to normal by about day 3 or 4. There is no obvious swelling so you can go straight back to work the next day with mineral make up and SPF. Some people will get dryness on about day 3, a mild exfoliation can be done.

After your treatment, you will likely be experiencing heat, redness and sensitivity in your skin. It is advised to avoid hot showers, un-protected sun exposure, do not exercise for 24 hours, no make up for 24 hours and avoid any active skincare for at least 5-7 days.
