Are there any side effects?
Yes, there are some side effects that can occur from lip fillers. The specific side effects you experience may vary depending on your individual circumstances. Common side effects include bruising, swelling and redness.
Does lip augmentation hurt?
The pain level of lip augmentation varies from person to person. Some people feel only a slight pinch, while others may experience more discomfort. The amount of filler injected can also affect the pain level. To minimise pain, a topical numbing cream is typically applied to the lips before the procedure.
Are lip fillers permanent?
Lip augmentation is not permanent. The results of lip augmentation can last for up to 12 months, but the filler will eventually be absorbed by the body. You may need to have the procedure repeated to maintain the results.
What should I expect during a consultation?
During a consultation for lip fillers, your doctor or aesthetician will discuss your goals for treatment. They will also explain the risks and side effects of the procedure and answer any questions you have.
