Lip Filler Your Questions Answered
How Do Lip Fillers Work?
Lip fillers are injected into the lip in the form of a vial. A vial is simply a measurement of injectable liquid administered during the treatment. Typically a lip filler treatment would require one or two vials, depending on the effect that needs to be created. At sk:n, we use several brands including Juvéderm® dermal fillers as lip fillers to create volume, re-contour or add definition to the lips. Juvederm® contains Hyaluronic acid, a substance which naturally occurs in the body and so it’s completely safe to use.
Do Lip Fillers Hurt?
Lip filler treatment requires no cuts, incisions or stitches. It may involve some light pain or discomfort. Clients describe it as a tiny scratch as the needle goes in, with a slight stinging sensation as the filler is applied. For those feeling anxious, we can use a local anaesthetic to numb the area completely.
Will I Look Dramatically Different After My Lip Fillers?
No. During your free consultation your doctor or nurse will discuss the best plan for you for subtle effects. Our practitioners work like artists, using the natural contours of your face for guidance. Your normal facial expressions will remain unaffected.
What Happens At My Consultation?
It’s important to us that you achieve the results you want, and we believe this starts with a great consultation. You will never be rushed and our highly trained practitioners will take the time to discuss aspects of your skin you may be unhappy with, your desired results, costs and timings. Our aim is for you to leave your consultation feeling confident, fully informed and looking forward to your treatment.
How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?
Lip fillers typically last 9-12 months. For example, one of the products we use is Juvederm®. These lip fillers are temporary and will typically last for this time frame, but this can vary depending on several factors including the volume of filler injected. Lifestyle factors, such as smoking or sun exposure, can also affect how long the results last as well as how quickly your body breaks down the filler.
Is It True That Your Lips Feel Hard Once You’ve Had Lip Filler?
After treatment your lips will feel tender and sore for the first couple of days and you may have the sensation of something in your lips. Following your consultation, your practitioner will be able to give you an indication of how your lips will feel in the days and weeks following your treatment so you know what to expect.
How Long Before I Can Wear Lip Liner Or Lipstick Again?
No makeup or product should be worn or applied to your lips for at least 12 hours following treatment.
