Lip Fillers – All You Need to Know

Our lips are one of our most visible features, and countless Australian’s undergo lip filler treatments every year in order to enhance their natural beauty. At Cosmetic Doctor Brisbane we take a tailored approach towards lip enhancement. Through working in close consultation with our clients and utilising the latest methods and products, we strive to deliver a superior standard of service and amazing results. If you’ve been considering lip filler treatments, here’s everything you need to know to make an informed decision.  

What are Lip Fillers? 

Lip fillers consist of a hyaluronic acid solution, which is injected around the lips to add volume and definition. This is a popular treatment solution for people who are unhappy with the appearance of their lips, as it can provide an immediate improvement and boost in confidence.  

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within the body which is water retentive. As such, it plays an important role in maintaining skin hydration, elasticity and volume. It is normal for people to experience a decline in hyaluronic acid production with age, which can cause the lips to take on a thinner, flatter appearance.   

Hyaluronic acid injections can help to reduce the signs of ageing by restoring skin/lip moisture, replacing lost volume, minimising wrinkles and enhancing your natural beauty. 

How Long Does Treatment Take? 

Lip filler procedures only take around 30 minutes. Dr Tarek uses advanced techniques and a range of professional grade products to deliver outstanding results. During your consultation, Dr Tarek will seek to understand your goals in order to create a tailored treatment for your specific needs. 

At Cosmetic Doctor Brisbane, we aim to enhance an individual’s natural beauty. Every pair of lips is unique, so there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to lip augmentation. Your tailored treatment plan may involve a combination of products and injecting methods in order to achieve the desired results.  

One of the biggest challenges with lip filler treatments is achieving natural looking results both at rest and during social engagement such as laughing, talking and smiling. Rest assured that Cosmetic Doctor Brisbane adopt a ‘less is more’ approach to aesthetic enhancement which ensures natural looking results.  

Do Lip Filler Injections Hurt? 

In addition to the local anaesthetic contained within the filler, Cosmetic Doctor Brisbane also use a topical numbing gel. Most people only experience mild discomfort. 

Side effects, if any, are typically minor and only last a few days. You may experience some swelling, tenderness or bruising around the lips, which can be concealed using a lip pencil or tinted lip balm.
