Should I get Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers are our most popular cosmetic procedure and they can be used to enhance the appearance of your lips, making them look fuller. Lip fillers are commonly called lip injections or dermal fillers, and they’re available in different formulations depending on the area being treated.

Lip fillers are typically used for two different purposes: to correct the shape of your lips and to add volume to them. The other popular use for lip fillers is to make lips appear fuller by injecting them into the tissues of your lips. This can increase the size of small or thin lips by adding volume so that they look more proportional with other facial features like eyes, nose and cheeks. Jen Vittanuova Medical Aesthetics only does natural looking lips in clinic.

 

Lip fillers (also called lip injections, lip augmentation and lip implants) are a type of cosmetic injectable that is designed to alter the shape, size and contour of your lips.

Lip fillers are a type of cosmetic injectable that is designed to alter the shape, size and contour of your lips. Lip fillers can be used for either medical reasons or for purely aesthetic purposes. If you’re considering getting lip injections, it’s important to understand what they entail so you can choose a medical practitioner who will provide high-quality care and achieve results that look natural and beautiful on your unique face.

Lip augmentation involves the injection of hyaluronic acid in and around the lips where they naturally become thinner as we age or from weight loss due to dieting or illness. Some people experience mild discomfort during the procedure but the area will be anaesthetised with a prescription numbing cream.

The procedure takes around 30 – 60 minutes, depending on your desired outcome.

 

They are typically made from hyaluronic acid (HA); however, newer lip fillers may contain other substances.

It’s important to note there are new formulations being developed all the time; however, most of them still contain some combination of HA along with other substances.

Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the human body, which means your body will break down the hyaluronic acid over time and then remove it from your lips.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. It’s a sugar molecule that plays an important role in tissue repair and healing by helping to keep moisture inside of cells.

When injected into the lips, hyaluronic acid adds volume to give you fuller looking lips. It does this by temporarily filling up spaces between collagen fibres (the building blocks of skin).

The effect of hyaluronic acid lasts about 6-9 months before it starts to break down and get absorbed naturally back into your body.

 

If you’re interested in getting lip fillers, you should only go to a medical practitioner who is well trained in doing the procedure.

If you’re interested in getting lip fillers, you should only go to a medical practitioner who is well trained in doing the procedure. The best way to do this is by researching their background and talking to people who have worked with them.

A qualified practitioner should be able to provide you with reviews from past patients, as well as any other relevant information on their training and experience, and also their insurance documentation. If they seem reluctant or vague about their credentials and qualifications, take that into account when considering whether or not they are right for you.

If you’re going to have this procedure done, you should watch for side effects after the procedure.

If you’re going to have this procedure done, you should watch for side effects after the procedure. Common side effects can include swelling, bruising and tenderness that lasts up to a week. Less common side effects can include infection, skin discolouration or scarring.

As well as severe allergic reactions, vascular occlusions are a very rare, but very serious risk.

Vascular occlusions are where blood vessels are blocked either directly; this is when filler is injected directly into an artery or vein – or can be due to a compression blockage which is when filler is injected close to a vessel and blocks it indirectly by squashing it.
It is absolutely important it is that you seek help IMMEDIATELY if you think you have an occlusion following filler treatment.

If we see the occlusion in clinic, immediate action will be taken. The treatment will be stopped, a warm compress will be put on and the area will be massaged, we would use hyaluronidase to dissolve the filler and give you aspirin to help thin the blood.

It should be a medical practitioner who does your lip fillers as hyaluronidase is a prescription only medication, non-medics don’t have the ability to prescribe and this is how it can all go wrong very quickly.

 

 

While many people find lip fillers comfortable at the time of treatment and do not experience any significant pain or discomfort afterwards, others develop some tenderness and swelling.

Lip fillers are generally a very safe procedure and you can expect to have minimal to no pain or discomfort during the treatment. However, as with any medical procedure, there are certain risks involved in lip augmentation that patients should be aware of before undergoing lip filler treatment.

Some people experience bruising and discolouration that can last for several days after their treatment session has been completed; this is typically part of the normal healing process but if it persists longer than three days you may need to contact your medical practitioner for further advice on how to deal with these symptoms.

Due to the nature of this procedure there are always risks, it’s important that you inform yourself on all possible side effects before deciding whether or not undergoing lip fillers is right for you there may be other options available depending on your needs!

Lip fillers can create stunning results!

Lip fillers can give you a natural look, a fuller look, or even a more defined look. You can also have lip fillers to make your lips appear more youthful and symmetrical. Lip fillers can give you the sculpted appearance that will enhance your overall face shape and proportions.

Lip filler results are achieved by injecting hyaluronic acid into the lips to increase their volume by adding it into the dermis layer of skin underneath your lips. The hyaluronic acid is dissolved over time but continues to give volume and fullness for up to a year after treatment
