What happens during lip filler treatment?

Before your treatment you will usually have a topical anaesthetic applied to the lip area prior to your procedure taking place. Once numb, you will have dermal filler injected at precise locations into your lips and skin. The doctor, nurse or surgeon will then massage the area to help smooth the filler. At the end of the procedure you will be given a mirror so you can see the results after treatment.

You will then be given post-treatment instructions to follow. Results from dermal lip filler are immediate and can last from 6-12 months.

Does lip filler treatment hurt?

The majority of dermal fillers include added in anaesthetic which can make the treatment relatively pain free. In most cases we apply topical anaesthetic to the area prior to treatment to make it more comfortable. Discomfort levels will depend on your own pain tolerance, your practitioner’s technique and the areas being treated.

At The Private Clinic your comfort is our priority so we will do everything possible to make your lip filler treatment as pain free as possible. If you are concerned we do recommend coming in to see us for a consultation to discuss lip filler in more detail.

What type of filler is used for lip filler?

At The Private Clinic we only use fillers made from hyaluronic acid which will then be biodegraded naturally and safely over a period of time. We have a very high level of satisfaction for using this type of filler for lip enhancement.

For lip enhancement, we most commonly used Teoxane® or Juvederm® fillers.

Teoxane RHA3® is an ideal filler for giving fuller and more pronounced volume to the lips. It performs best in the most dynamic areas of the face such as the lips without looking stiff or unnatural.Teoxane’s RHA® range of dermal fillers have won multiple awards for their unique properties

Juvederm® Volbella is very effective at providing an all round treatment for the lips. It can restore volume in a natural looking way as well addressing any perioral / smoker lines around the mouth. Its smooth, gel-like consistency is ideal for creating a natural feel and look of the lips.

Juvederm® Smile is another great filler that is specifically designed for use in the lips to create smooth and natural results.

How long does lip filler last?

The results of dermal lip filler can last between 4 and 13 months depending on the type of filler used. The effects of filler will fade gradually over time and your doctor, nurse or surgeon will be able to give you an idea of when to visit again for additional treatment to help maintain your results. If you decide not to continue with lip filler injections then the gel will naturally be absorbed by your body.

When can I wear make-up after lip filler?

We recommend waiting at least 6 hours but ideally 24 hours before applying make-up directly to the lips such as lipstick or lip gloss. This allows the injection sites to heal and reduces the risk of you unintentionally moving the filler within the lips before it has had a chance to settle.

Can you drink alcohol after lip filler?

We recommend that you avoid drinking alcohol 24 hours prior to having dermal filler treatment as this will reduce your risk of bruising, swelling or bleeding. After treatment you should not drink alcohol for at least 24 hours as this will then reduce the risk of inflammation.

What happens if I stop having lip filler?

If you stop having dermal lip filler treatment your lips will gradually return to their natural shape. To maintain the results of lip filler you will need to return for additional treatment. You will be advised in your consultation when to come back for treatment.

How can I stop bruising after lip filler?

Bruising and swelling after lip filler can be unpredictable abut there are a couple of things you can do to help lessen your risk of bruising after treatment which include;

  • Not taking aspirin, exedrin, ibuprofen, aleve or advil for 1 week before treatment and 2 days after treatment.
  • Not St Johns Wort, Fish Oil/Omega 3, Flaxseed Oil, Vitamin E for 2 weeks prior to treatment.
  • Avoiding alcohol at least 24 hours before and after your treatment.
  • Avoiding strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Avoid intense heat such as steam rooms, saunas and freezing temperatures.
  • Taking arnica tablets in the weeks leading up to your treatment.

A full list of pre and post care instructions will be provided to you at your consultation.
