It may be that your lips have lost their natural definition and fullness over time, or that you’ve always wanted fuller, more defined lips. Lip fillers can be used to add volume, enhance the shape, and improve the definition of your lips. This is a minimally invasive, injectable cosmetic treatment that is quick, easy and produces immediate results. There is very little downtime involved and patients report very little discomfort during the procedure. Our personalised treatment plans are designed to give you the results you desire. Whether you’re after a small change or want a more noticeable enhancement, lip fillers could be right for you.
At Academy Face and Body in Perth, we aim to provide the very best experience to those interested in lip injections, starting from your initial consultation. Your expectations will be discussed with one of our expert injectors. We will also explain your treatment options and tell you what you can expect in terms of results during your consultation.
Lip fillers are suitable for most people who wish to have fuller lips and add definition, provided they are realistic about what can be achieved. There is a small group of people for whom this treatment may not be appropriate. If you are allergic to filler or local anaesthetic, or are currently suffering from an autoimmune disease, you may not be suitable.
For most patients, after your initial consultation, you are able to proceed straight to your treatment. However, if you would like to apply a topical numbing cream, you will need to wait at least 30 minutes for it to take effect. The filler is injected using a very fine needle, allowing precise treatment of the desired area. Treatment times vary from 15 to 30 minutes.
Following your lip fillers, there may be some swelling for 1-3 days. There is also a chance of bruising. These side effects are completely natural and should disappear within one to five days. The amount of swelling will depend upon the individual being treated and the type of filler that is used in the lips. There is minimal downtime required after your treatment. However, we do recommend scheduling your first treatment when you don’t have an event soon after your session. This ensures that swelling and bruising won’t be an issue.
Between two and four weeks after your initial treatment session, you may require top-up treatments.
