LIP FILLERS

Lip fillers are both a science and an art. Dermal fillers are used in the lip area via micro-injections to provide a fuller, shapely, defined and volumized lip. The treatment is one of the most popular dermal filler treatments in the industry and is suitable for the majority of clients who would like a volumized lip or a 2/3 proportion ratio correction.

To achieve the desired lip creating either a soft or luscious look, a range of dermal fillers which have different densities could be used for your treatment. All fillers used contain a local anaesthetic gel which minimises discomfort. The treatment results are immediate, and results can last up 15 months depending on the dermal filler injected.

TREATMENT PROCEDURE

It is important you tell your practitioner about any medicines or dietary supplements you are taking, some medicines can adversely affect the way the filler works or increase your risk of bruising.

If you are taking supplements such as Vitamin A, C or E, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, fish oils, or some pain killing medicines such as aspirin or ibuprofen, then these can increase your risk of bruising and it may be advisable to stop taking them a few days before your treatment. It is also advisable that you do not drink alcohol the night before your treatment, for the same reason.

It is not advisable to have treatment if you are feeling at all unwell.

Make-up will need to be removed prior to the injections and you will be advised not to reapply it for 12 hours in order to reduce the risk of infection or irritation at the injection sites.

Be aware of the necessary aftercare advice and that your schedule allows for you to follow it.

A full consultation will be conducted with yourself and your Practitioner to discuss your treatment. In the consultation, your practitioner will assess the area of concern, answer any of your questions, show you examples of before and after treatment images and develop an effective treatment plan for you. Areas may be marked to illustrate the overall look you are looking to achieve. After the treatment plan has been confirmed by you and your practitioner, your practitioner will take you through the consent process and take some pre-treatment photographs. All treatment areas will be sterilised and prepped for treatment.

Lidocaine (numbing cream) will be applied or there is an option for a full dental block (numbing injections) to ensure your treatment is totally pain-free. The dermal filler is then injected into the lips using micro-needles or a cannula ensuring minimal discomfort and bruising. The technique will allow your practitioner to sculpt the lips to the desired shape and fullness. In many cases, your practitioner may use a round, blunt-ended micro cannula to deliver the dermal filler to the entire lips. The cannula technique requires an invisible entry point either side of the mouth, the benefits of this technique reduces the risk of bruising from injection sites.

Once treatment has been delivered, your practitioner will massage the areas, re-sterilise the treatment sites and show you your immediate results. Aftercare instructions will be explained thoroughly and provided to you by your practitioner. After all treatments you will be offered a review appointment, usually 2 weeks post-treatment, details will be sent to you in an email confirmation.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The lips are an essential component of facial symmetry and aesthetics.

• Anthropometric studies have shown that wider and fuller lips in relation to facial width as well as greater vermilion height are a mark of female attractiveness.
• There has been a dramatic increase in cosmetic surgery in Western culture in the past few decades, with an increasing focus on achieving aesthetic ideals and maintaining a youthful appearance
• Full lips have become increasingly desirable as they are considered both youthful and beautiful.

As we age our facial skeleton also changes, as it starts to invert away from the skin, leaving skin looking less volumized and hollow. The changes in the facial skeleton can effect:

• Lip volume
• Vermillion Border
• Philtral Columns
• Perioral Wrinkles
• Lip Position
• Labial aperture

Over time the upper lip starts to narrow, It is often associated with an aggressive facial expression. Therefore, many individuals may experience Lip shrinkage, which could lead to a much higher demand of upper lip augmentations than lower lip augmentations. During the consultation with the practitioner, many individuals may believe that their treatment only requires the filling of the upper lip. However, this could give a disproportional result when the size of the upper lip exceeds the size of the lower lip. People will tend to recognize the lip as being artificially enhanced.

Your practitioner may use the Phi – GOLDEN RATIO of thirds to achieve the beautification of the lip. The Thirds ratio is separating the lip into thirds which is proportional to your face profile. Your practitioner will advise you during the consultation how much filler will be required to ensure your upper lip is 1/3 and the lower lip is 2/3, this will guarantee beautification of the lip complimenting your face profile.

Your practitioner will stay within the anatomical zones that are regularly injected with lip fillers such as:

• Vermilion/white roll
• Subvermilion
• Peristomal
• Philtral column
• Commissural
