Generally speaking, an injectable dermal filler is used for lip augmentation. Most dermal fillers used for lip enhancement contain HA, also known as Hyaluronic Acid. HA is actually synthesized naturally within the human body and can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water. This is why it’s commonly used in cosmetic and beauty treatments. Fat injections, collagen fillers, and implants are other methods to plump lips. But they aren't used as much today because the results vary, and there is a greater risk of side effects. There are several hyaluronic acid fillers on the market, but here at Dr. Aesthetica, we most commonly use a range of dermal fillers including Juvederm, Intraline and Resytlane. We have found that these range of products gives the most consistent results.
Hyaluronic acid fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding: shape, structure, and volume. This is done by injecting the Hyaluronic Acid filler directly into the part of the body that the patient wishes to plump up and fill out, in this case—the lips. With HA fillers, the doctor has precise control over exactly how much filler to inject, allowing for the best results. This procedure can be performed quickly and often lasts no more than 30 minutes.
Here at Dr. Aesthetica, we use a variety of advanced aesthetic techniques to create natural fullness, defined shape, and well-balanced lips.

With all cosmetic treatments, there is always a risk that something could go wrong. This is why your lip enhancement should only be carried out by an experienced and qualified Doctor. That said, the side effects of HA lip fillers are temporary and should only last a few days. They may include:
Here at Dr. Aesthetica, we go the extra mile to make sure all our treatments are safe for our patients. All patients have ongoing follow up care as needed. Should the unexpected happen, we are able to prescribe appropriate treatments and reversal agents if required.
The simple answer is no. If done correctly, your lips should be fuller and smoother without the appearance of lumps inside the lips or above the lips. Lumps can often be confused with swelling straight after the procedure, but this will resolve fully in 1-2 weeks. After you have healed, your lips should feel smooth and natural.
Most patients will describe the procedure as uncomfortable as the lip area has lots of nerves and can be sensitive. That’s why we use a topical numbing cream to ease any discomfort. The lip filler also has a numbing agent built in to help further numb the area.
The lips can shrink with age and lose their plumpness and definition due to the loss of fat and collagen. This can cause lipstick to bleed, which can be seriously annoying when you’re looking for a sharp, precise application. On the other hand, some patients have always had thin lips or don’t like their lip shape. Many people complain that they particularly notice thin lips when they smile.
Full, voluminous lips have always been seen as a sign of youth and beauty. Many women would like to achieve this look in order to boost their confidence and to feel more attractive. For a fuller, plump, more youthful, and sensual look, lips can be treated with dermal fillers.
However, lips can be one of the most difficult areas to treat; in the hands of an inexperienced practitioner, you could end up with a ‘trout pout’. It is very important that the practitioner you choose has extensive experience in this area and knows the results he can achieve without overfilling the lips or misshaping them.
This depends on how much product was used and the technique used to inject. There is always some degree of swelling which will resolve with 1-2 weeks. The use of ice is helpful in reducing swelling.

Before undergoing lip augmentation, you should be in good health and tell your doctor about any medications you are taking. Here at Dr. Aesthetica, we carry out a full medical before carrying out the procedure on the patient.
This depends on how much product was used and the technique used to inject. There is always some degree of swelling, which will resolve within 1-2 weeks. Ice may help to ease discomfort and control swelling but be careful not to apply any firm pressure on the treatment area.
Lips fillers will last around 6 to 8 months on average. But the exact duration is affected by several different factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking, and how much you move the area. Some patients report that the filler lasts around 12 months, with others reporting as little as 4 months.
