Non-surgical lip injections create shape and add volume to thin or ageing lips.

Lip fillers have been trending for a while now. As one of the most sought-after non-invasive cosmetic medical treatments in 2019, trained and qualified injectors use dermal fillers to provide volume to lips, giving them a luscious, smooth texture. While lip injections are widely available in Australia, but not all results are equal.

Without a doubt, the most important factor is who’s administering the treatment. Aesthetic medicine is both a science and an art. Our skilled injector will study facial anatomy before strategically mapping out the injection site. Using too much filler—or injecting it in the wrong areas—will pucker the results. Achieving your desired result means working with Kas Hollingsworth who understands aesthetic medicine and facial anatomy.

Another helpful tip is to share goals, communicate. Bring along images of the ideal look. Consider how to balance aesthetic goals with achievable (and maintainable) results. 

Questions to consider include:

– How voluminous should the lips look?
– What works best with facial anatomy and structure?
– Should results be natural or dramatic?
– How often are touch-ups necessary?

Some of the best advice when it comes to aesthetic medicine (especially fillers) is to take it slow. Fillers can always be topped up. First-timers especially should take their time.

Generally in our practice we will allow patients to return for a top-up a few days later if larger-than-life is really their goal. But most people aren’t into the over-filled sausage look and simply want to rejuvenate their tired, thinning lips.

For best results, remember to prep before an appointment. Medicines like aspirin, anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen, fish oil, multivitamins, or vitamin E are a no-no a few days prior to your treatment. These thin the blood, which can result in severe bruising post-procedure.  Avoiding caffeine and alcohol 24 hours before and after an appointment is also recommended.

Finally, ask the injector which fillers they use. There are many suppliers in our market, at Renaissance Skin Care we use premium fillers from reputable suppliers.

The reason is that these different types of fillers deliver different results. For example, Restalyne delivers a more natural look while Juvederm is a better option for those targeting a more pillowy look.  Also keep in mind that achieving lots of extra volume may require more than one syringe of filler.

Getting lip fillers is easier than ever before. With Kas Hollingsworth, the procedure takes about an 30-45 mins. But don’t expect a picture-worthy pout right away. It takes a few days for the swelling/tenderness to reduce, but after that, the results last for about 9-12 months.
