In this guide to lip fillers, we are answering your lip filler FAQs to help you decide if fillers are for you and provide you with all the information to make an informed decision.

Are Lip Fillers And Dermal Fillers The Same Thing?

Dermal fillers are small injections to add volume to the soft tissue in the face – in areas such as the cheek, mouth, lips around the eye and the jawline. They are used for combating signs of ageing by filling in wrinkles, addressing dark circles, restoring lost volume from thinning lips and adding shape and definition. If you’re looking for more information on Dermal Fillers, check out our blog post “Boosting Beauty: A Guide To Dermal Fillers” here.

Why Should I Choose Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers offer a non-surgical method of achieving the plump pout you always wanted. It’s not just about aesthetics, but about boosting your self-esteem and allowing you to feel your best. Lip Fillers can define your lips and add volume while maintaining a natural appearance. 

I Have Been Told I Need Multiple Treatments. Is This True?

One common misconception about lip fillers is that you will achieve immediate fullness and your desired results. While that may be true for some, thinner lips often require a gradual approach. Building up volume over multiple treatments is not only safer, but you’re more likely to achieve natural-looking results.

What Are The Risks Of Lip Fillers?

Like any cosmetic treatment, it comes with some risks. These risks can include swelling, bruising and in some cases, migration of the dermal filler. It’s important to choose an aesthetic practitioner who is qualified and experienced to minimise these risks.

What Are The Benefits of Lip Fillers?

Lip Fillers are a non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime after the treatment. The treatment can be tailored to give you the results that you are looking for. So whether you’re looking to restore or add volume to your lips, they can help you achieve your desired look, while still having a natural appearance and boosting your self-esteem. 

How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?

Most treatments last between six to eight months. If you’re looking for all-year-round plumpness and definition to your lips it’s recommended to have a top-up treatment every six months.

Why Is It Important to Maintain Natural Anatomy?

Perhaps one of the most important aspects of lip fillers is preserving the natural anatomy of your lips. The last thing you want is to end up with an exaggerated or unnatural look. To avoid this, you must attend an initial consultation to check that it is possible to achieve your desired results. Discussing the type of look you want to achieve beforehand may help you achieve the perfect balance between fuller lips while preserving your unique features.

Is It Painful To Get Lip Fillers?

Lip Fillers may cause some slight discomfort, but it’s not something that you should worry about. Numbing cream will be applied to your lips beforehand to ease any discomfort from the injection.

Will I Get Lumps And Bumps On My Lips?

It’s not uncommon to worry about potential lumps and bumps after getting lip fillers. While these issues can happen, understanding what to expect and how to address them is the most important part. Lumps and bumps can sometimes occur as a natural part of the healing process. They often resolve themselves, but you will be given guidance on anything you can do to help and any necessary follow-up treatments.

What Is Migration And What Should I Do If It Happens?

Migration of dermal fillers is when the filler moves from its intended location. It is discussed at your appointment and you’ll be made aware of what signs you should look out for. If you notice any unwanted changes in your lip shape, don’t panic. This is when you should contact your practitioner promptly. Your practitioner will be able to assess your lips and determine if you do indeed have migration of dermal fillers. If so, the appropriate treatment plan will be created which could involve dissolving the filler.

How Do I Reduce Swelling After Lip Fillers?

You may notice some swelling after lip fillers. If this is the case you should apply ice to the treated area, take an antihistamine, which has been shown to help with swelling, drink plenty of water, sleep slightly upright with an extra pillow, and if you experience swelling that is excessive and pain that cannot be relieved with pain relief, seek medical attention.

What Should I Avoid After Lip Filler Treatment?

After lip fillers, you should avoid strenuous exercise and extremes of hot and cold environments while your lips are swollen. You should also plan your treatment accordingly, as flying should be avoided for two weeks after lip fillers due to the pressure in the plane and the dry environment. This can cause increased swelling. Finally, avoid alcohol for 24 hours after your treatment.
