Lip injections Perth: The best natural fillers, no downtime, Beautiful fuller lips
Lip Injections are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments, giving clients a boost of volume and a more desirable shape to their lips. Lips can lose their fullness and develop fine lines over time, and this procedure is a simple and quick fix. Lip injections are small, precise injections with a very fine needle, that plumps up lips and boosts collagen production, as well as smooths out fine lines and wrinkles. The injections are minimally invasive, so the treatment has little pain or down time. Most patients see results right away, with lips that are fuller and with a plump, round shape. The amount of volume desired varies from patient to patient, so the Doctors and Nurses at Fresh Faces Cosmetic Medicine consult with all clients to discuss the look they want and all the details of the treatment. Whether you want a dramatic look or a less noticeable boost and improvement, a lip injections treatment at Fresh Faces Cosmetic Medicine is a top choice for having beautiful results and fuller, rounder lips.
What are lip injections?
Lip injections, which are also known as lip fillers are a common cosmetic treatment, that improve shape and add instant volume to lips, and will also soften fine lines around your lips and mouth. At Fresh Faces Cosmetic Medicine, we only use the best quality injectables in our office, with award-winning, ultra-premium brands from Europe and Switzerland.
When the fillers are injected into the skin, they work from the inside, boosting volume and adding shape from below the skin. Volume is increased by fillers, and the process is also beneficial for encouraging the skin’s natural production of collagen. There is little risk of adverse or allergic reactions from the lip injections. As you can see from our lip injections before and after photos, the lips are fuller, plump and hydrated.
Are lip injections and lip flips the same?
Lip fillers should not be confused with the common “lip flip.” This is a common mistake, and the procedures are very different. A lip flip is done with a muscle relaxer that is injected into the border of your lip. The toxin relaxes the muscles around your mouth, causing your lip to turn or “flip” outward. While the lip flip results do appear to be a fuller, poutier lips, the volume and shape of your lips are not improved. With a lip flip, there is a risk of injecting too much product into the muscles, making movement of the lips and mouth difficult. This could be especially awkward when eating or drinking. This procedure continues to be popular because the lip flip cost is generally lower than lip fillers.
Your Fresh Faces Lip Injections treatment experience
We give all of our patients free consultations before every treatment. This is with one of our doctors or registered clinicians, where you have a one-on-one discussion on the treatment and your desired results. We will be honest and detailed about the procedure, the injectables that we use, and what you can expect for pain and possible side effects, and what you need to do for after-care for your lips. The staff will examine your lips before the treatment and ask you questions about your medical history. Only when you are fully comfortable, the doctor or nurse can begin right away.
Lip injections treatment.
After our initial consultation, most patients can proceed with the lip injections immediately. To help minimise pain, many patients choose to have a numbing cream or topical anesthesia on the surface of the skin. Others choose dental blocks, which are injections of local anesthesia that make the entire lip completely numb during the treatment. Once the anesthesia (topical or local) set in, which can take about 30 minutes, there is virtually no pain or discomfort during the injections. The entire treatment, including anesthesia, takes less than an hour.
Lip injections are done with a very fine needle, injecting fillers under the surface of the skin with extreme precision. The results can be seen right away, so the injectors can control how much volume is created and gradually increase until you are happy with the results.
Not only do you see results immediately, but there is little or no down time. After your treatment, you will be able to return to your daily routine or to work straight after, though definitely take precautions as described below.
After care and possible side-effects for lip injections.
Common side effects that can occur after lip injections include tenderness, swelling, redness and bruising around the lips and mouth, and also slight bleeding from injection points. All of these reactions are completely normal and should disappear within a few days. Your healing time will depend on how quickly your body heals. Staying hydrated will help, and you can use ice or cold packs to help with pain and swelling. Once the side effects have subsided, your lips should feel natural, soft and normal.
To care for your lips, reduce pain and other side effects, and speed up healing, follow these recommendations:
Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water, and avoid foods that are known to cause dehydration, such as salty, spicy or processed food, as well as alcohol
Don’t use lipstick, or anything that applies pressure to your lips
You can apply ice or a cold pack to the area to help with pain and swelling, but be careful to not too much pressure
Avoid excessive sweating and strenuous exercise for 24-48 hours
Do not take hot baths, or use saunas or jacuzzis, for a few days as well
How long do lip injections last?
Results are noticed immediately after lip injections, though it may take a week or so for your lips to fully settle down. For most patients, lip injections last for six months or more, however this can vary depending on the individual’s age, lifestyle, skin type and tone. After six months, you may want to have touch-ups to maintain your results. The fillers are gradually broken down and safely absorbed.
Are lip injections safe?
Lip enhancement is a very common procedure, because it is minimally invasive, simple and has very little side effects or down time. There are very few complications, though it is important to know and understand all risks when undergoing a medical procedure. Patients should be in generally good health. Common side effects, as mentioned above, include swelling, bruising, and redness near the lips and the injection points. Other possible reactions, though rare, are rashes, infections, or bumps that resemble acne. There may be a slight unevenness of your lips, but this will also disappear over time.
During your initial consultation, the Doctor/Nurse will examine your lips, and also ask you questions about your medical history. Patients with an active cold sore or infection around the mouth or lips will most likely be asked to wait until it clears, so that it is not agitated and worsened. Patients who have allergies to fillers or local anesthesia will also have added risks. Those with autoimmune disease such as diabetes or lupus should also tell our doctor or nurse prior to treatment. Should any of the side effects last for more than a few days, please call us immediately. As mentioned above, we recommend lip injections and fillers treatment, as a safer natural option for fuller lips than lip flip perth.
