What is Lip Enhancement?

Lip enhancement is one of the most popular treatments at our Perth clinic.  Having full, plump lips is often associated with youth, beauty and good health. Whether you were born with thin lips or your lips are thinning due to the natural ageing process, lip augmentation with dermal fillers is a safe and effective way to enhance them. The lip fillers we use are made of a substance that naturally occurs in the skin. They are man-made, animal-free and allergy-free, and are broken down by the body over time.

What is a lip enhancement treatment like? 

Lip enhancement with dermal fillers is a quick and easy process, and usually takes about 30 minutes. The sterile gel is injected into the lips and along the lip border with a very fine needle. The filler we use contains local anaesthetic and most Skin Resus patients find lip enhancement very comfortable. Additional anaesthetic may be used if desired. The results are seen immediately, although swelling is common in this area. Some dermal fillers are more likely to swell than others - the choice of filler will be discussed during your consultation. 

Immediately after the treatment, you can expect slight redness, swelling, tenderness or an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal reaction to the the treatment and settles soon after. Bruising can occasionally occur. If you are prone to bruising, there's a few things you can do before your treatment to minimise this, so ask us about it when you book. 

How much does lip enhancement cost? 

At Skin Resus, lip enhancement treatment is tailored to your specific needs, so the price of the treatment is calculated individually. As a guide, 1ml of dermal filler will give a beautiful result in most cases, which is priced between $590 and $610 depending on the product used. If it's your first time or you prefer a more subtle result, 0.5 ml filler can be used ($450).

When will I see the results?

Results can be seen immediately after lip enhancement, though some swelling and bruising may be present for a few days after. If you are having lip enhancement done for a special event, we recommend that you do this at least 4 weeks before. If you are prone to bruising, there's a few things you can do before your treatment to minimise this - see below for our top tips to minimise bruising.

How long does lip enhancement last? 

Lip enhancement treatments will usually last 4 - 8 months, depending on the product used and on your individual metabolism. Those with a fast metabolism will tend to need re-treatment sooner than those with slower metabolisms.

Are there any side effects from a lip enhancement treatment?

Lip enhancement treatment is very safe, but occasional side effects can occur. These include:

  • Redness and swelling around the injection site
  • Bruising can occur at the injection point and can occasionally be quite marked
  • Additional treatment may be needed to achieve the desired result
  • Infection is very rare, but is possible with any procedure that pierces the skin
  • Other very rare complications can occur. These will be discussed during your consultation.
