Lip Filler – The new normal

A Lip Filler treatment adds definition to the mouth, lips as well as adding volume to the lip where it matters most.

There are fillers that are specifically developed for lips and there are fillers that are not meant to be used in lips. Knowledge of which one to use and when requires medical training and experience. Choose your doctor based on their prior results as well as what other people have said about them – word of mouth referral is the best – but if not, do your research and ask questions. Ask as many questions as you need to in order to feel comfortable that the treatment that you are going to receive is the best for your individual taste and style.

Lip Filler is a hyaluronic acid smooth gel that is injected by your doctor, using an ultra-fine needle. It has been specifically developed as a smooth gel to give a soft, natural feel. The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture, so results can last up to a year.

These rules must be obeyed by the injector in order to maintain a natural look.

Prior to being injected, your lips will be medically numbed using either a potent medical grade numbing cream or local anaesthetic injections within the mouth. Usually, the potent numbing cream is more than enough to suppress the pain associated with lip injections. That said, if you desire local anesthetic injections instead of the cream, mention it to your doctor so that you can have the best experience possible. Fillers should never be painful!
