Treatments to achieve fuller lips are becoming increasingly important and offer a versatile range of benefits for those seeking to enhance their lips. By effectively increasing volume, these treatments provide a plump and youthful appearance, enhancing overall facial harmony.

They enable precise lip line definition, creating a well-defined and attractive contour. The hydration-improving properties of fuller lip treatments contribute to a smoother texture and reduced fine lines, enhancing the lips’ natural radiance. They can also address asymmetry issues, achieving a balanced, symmetrical look that enhances overall facial aesthetics.

What style of fuller lips can I get?

Different Lip Shapes

Despite using identical techniques, treatment outcomes can differ significantly in size, shape, and colour. The injector’s proficiency is crucial in achieving results that complement an individual’s unique features and minimise common treatment concerns.

Russian Lips: Specific techniques, such as the Russian lip technique, aim to create a more even distribution of volume and a smoother transition between the lips and surrounding skin. This technique involves layering filler along the entire lip, including the vermilion border, to achieve a fuller appearance. Megan Fox is a great example of someone who utilises the Russian Lip shape.

The M Shape: Another popular technique is the M shape, which emphasises the central portion of the upper lip, creating a prominent “M” shape. Extremely popular in Korea – either through makeup, filler, or editing apps – it involves strategically placing filler along the cupid’s bow and the central part of the lip to accentuate its natural peaks and valleys.

Keyhole Lips: Popularised by celebrities like Kylie Jenner, the keyhole lip technique creates a central indentation or “keyhole” shape in the middle of the upper lip, enhancing its overall appearance.

What To Expect

Our team is fully trained and certified, so you can expect nothing but the best! Before each treatment, you will have a consultation to discuss your concerns, discuss what to expect during and after the procedure, and make any additional appointments you may need.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will my fuller lips last?

Results are immediate; however, swelling and bruising may occur for up to 2 weeks post-treatment. Depending on the type of treatment and how your body breaks it down (every person is different), fuller lips can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months.

Once the swelling has settled, if you are still unsatisfied with the volume, we recommend a consultation to see if you need additional treatment or a lip flip.

Does it hurt?

The level of pain or discomfort experienced during the procedure can vary from person to person. Some individuals may find the procedure relatively painless, while others might experience mild to moderate discomfort. The sensation can be described as a slight pinch or stinging feeling as the needle is inserted into the lips. A topical numbing cream is applied to the injection sites prior to the procedure, reducing the sensation around the lips.

I’m swollen and bruised, is this normal?

Swelling and bruising are common side effects after treatment and are typically considered normal reactions. The intensity of these effects may differ among patients, but they typically subside within a few days.

To effectively reduce swelling and bruising, we suggest applying cold compresses, refraining from blood-thinning medications like ibuprofen, and avoiding strenuous exercise during the initial days after your treatment.

If you’re concerned about the extent of your swelling or bruising or if you experience any unusual symptoms, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

How do I prepare for my treatment?

To prepare for your appointment, please observe the following guidelines: Refrain from consuming alcohol, fish oil, and anti-inflammatories 48 hours prior. Confirm the absence of active infections like cold sores in the treatment area. If you’ve had or plan to have dental work within two weeks of the appointment, or if international travel is scheduled within the next two weeks, treatment cannot be administered to minimise infection risks. Vaccinations should be conducted two weeks before or after the lip filler procedure.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, unfortunately, you cannot get this treatment done. If you are trying to get pregnant, please notify us prior so we can take the appropriate steps, as you cannot be pregnant on the day of treatment.

My lips feel lumpy and hard, should I be worried?

Feeling lumps or hardness in the treated area after getting treatment is not uncommon, especially in the immediate aftermath of the procedure. However, if you observe that these lumps persist or if there is a noticeable change in the texture of the treated area, we recommend that you contact our clinic to arrange a follow-up appointment.

If you encounter soft lumps, the treatment has likely settled this way. Our qualified providers can offer guidance on gentle massaging techniques to address these concerns effectively.

However, if you notice firm and tender lumps to the touch, it could indicate a reaction to the filler. In such cases, our skilled aesthetic medical professionals can offer solutions like steroid treatments to mitigate this reaction.

What is a lip augmentation?

Lip augmentation techniques can enhance your lips’ shape, size and symmetry. Our skilled practitioners use advanced methods to achieve natural-looking results tailored to your unique facial features.

Can I get this treatment if I'm pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, unfortunately, you cannot get this treatment for fuller lips. Here are a few reasons why:

  • Safety Concerns: Safety during pregnancy has not been well-studied. Without sufficient research, it is unclear how this treatment might affect the developing fetus. Therefore, it is best to avoid any potential risks.
  • Hormonal Changes: Pregnancy causes significant hormonal changes that can unpredictably affect your skin and body. These changes might alter how your body reacts to treatment, potentially leading to complications or unexpected results.
  • Immune System Changes: Pregnancy affects the immune system, which might increase the risk of infections or adverse reactions. Your body’s response to treatment could be different and less predictable during this time.
  • Allergic Reactions: The risk of allergic reactions, though rare, could be more problematic during pregnancy, complicating any necessary treatments or interventions.
  • Lack of Emergency Medications: If an adverse reaction or complication occurs, the range of medications and treatments available to address these issues might be limited due to potential risks to the fetus.
  • Precautionary Principle: Medical professionals often adopt a precautionary principle during pregnancy, recommending avoiding non-essential treatments and procedures to minimise potential risks to both the mother and the baby.

 

If you are trying to get pregnant, please notify us prior so we can take the appropriate steps, as you cannot be pregnant on the day of treatment.

What does this treatment contain?

Treatments for lip volume (fuller lips) consist of synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA), which occurs naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid can be found in the eyes, skin, and joints, and it holds onto moisture, keeping joints and tissues lubricated.

How long does the procedure take?

The treatment procedure can take up to 30 minutes and has immediate results. There may be slight swelling and redness for 24 hours.

Can I wear lip products immediately after getting treatment?

Although it is not advised to apply makeup, including lip gloss, lip balm, or lipstick, immediately after receiving treatment, there is no medical impediment. The treatment may cause slight tenderness in the lips, so it’s best to wait a day before applying makeup to the treated area.
