What would I want to get lip filler?

Lip filler is a dermal filler treatment in the lips. It is becoming increasingly popular and one of the fast growing cosmetic injectable treatments in New Zealand. It can add volume to thin lips, correct uneven lip shape, smooth out smoker’s lines and we have also treated scars on the lips with dermal fillers.

Does the procedure hurt?

Generally lip filler treatment is not painful. We have a range of options to make the treatment very tolerable including the application of a strong numbing cream that acts quickly. The dermal filler even has a dose of the painkiller lidocaine mixed in the gel, which will further help to numb the area.

What should I expect from my treatment?

We use either JUVÉDERM® or RESTYLANE® which is a dermal filler and a non-surgical procedure.

You will have a thorough consultation with one of our highly experienced Cosmetic Nurses to review your medical history and assess your suitability for the lip filler treatment. We listen to your concerns and what you are looking to achieve from the treatment. We will then discuss treatment options and agree a treatment plan with you.

A tiny needle is placed into the lips or lipstick lines to give the desired results. Some gentle moulding is done as part of the treatment. The process usually takes around 20mins. There is usually some swelling after the treatment; this can be reduced with the application of an ice pack.

Are there any possible side effects?

Dermal fillers have been clinically studied for many years and clinical trials have shown that JUVÉDERM® and RESTYLANE® are well tolerated. While you may experience no side effects at all, there is a chance you could experience site redness, pain, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching or discolouration. These effects are generally temporary and should resolve within a few days.

How long do results last?

Whilst everyone is different – results have been clinically proven to last for up to 12 months.
