Lip injections (fillers) in Perth
For some of us, the size of the red coloured part of the lips (called the vermillion) is smaller than we’d like. Successfully increasing the size of small lips requires an understanding of proportion so that the final result looks both natural and sensual. One of our most popular treatments is the enhancement of lip volume using dermal filler injections, often called “lip filler” treatments. By performing thousands of these treatments over the past few years, we have developed the experience to ensure we can communicate with our clients before their treatments to help tailor the best possible result for them.
Injectable dermal fillers are very popular these days and are mostly used for lip enhancement procedures. There are more and more brands of dermal fillers becoming available for use in Australia. Each brand of dermal filler has slightly different gel characteristics that result in the fillers looking and behaving differently in the lips. Based on our extensive experience, we can help describe the differences to you and help you decide on which brand of dermal filler to use. We stock and have experience using most dermal filler brands that are available in Australia. Many clinics will stock only one.
Once we have done the medical consultation (which includes a prescription – if appropriate) and once we have finished describing the treatment, and gone through the consent process, the actual lip filler treatment is relatively quick, it usually takes 5 to 10 minutes. We offer all clients the option of either numbing cream or numbing injections. Numbing injections are more effective and very quick. Because we use numbing medicine that is a bit different from what most dentists use, the numbing will wear off much faster. Most of the time our numbing injections will wear off in 15 to 60 minutes. Some people prefer not to have the very numb lips (from injections) and choose the numbing cream instead. The cream takes 10 to 20 minutes to work.
Many types of dermal fillers can be injected around the mouth and in the lips. The fillers that we recommend for use in the lips are ones that contain factory manufactured substances very similar to the hyaluronic acid substances that are found naturally in everyone’s skin.
