What Are Lip Fillers?
Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, produced naturally in the body and found in higher concentrations in the skins of younger people. Fillers offer a non-invasive cosmetic option that can add volume to thinned out lips and enhance the production of the body’s natural collagen. The treatment is also used to restore collagen loss by stimulating the body to create its own.
This cosmetic treatment is not recommended for people who are on some blood thinners. Your family dentist will review your medical history carefully and discuss the side effects of the procedure with you before beginning. To avoid unsatisfactory results, we explain to the client every aspect of the procedure including the side effects. This helps our patients to enjoy a pleasant experience free from complications.

Your dentist is knowledgeable in all the structures of the face and mouth, and often spends a long time studying the way your particular teeth and gums look, how your smile pulls up and contours your teeth, and how your lips balance your overall face. The mouth is, after all, a dentist’s specialty. Therefore, who better to trust with your lips than someone who knows your smile best?
Does it hurt?
Fortunately, dentists are experts in anaesthetizing your lips before the procedure, as they do it all day long for dental procedures. Therefore, lip augmentation can be done in a pain-free way. You should, however, expect some swelling and minor bruising in the days following your filler injections, until the lips take their final ideal shape. Lip fillers will typically last between 9 to 12 months depending on your body’s metabolism, your lifestyle, and the amount of filler placed. And of course, since the procedure is reversible, if you decide afterwards that they just aren’t for you, they can be melted away with a single injection.

How Long Do Lip
Different lip fillers have different lifespans. Most of them can remain in place for approximately six months, after which they start to dissolve. The change is gradual – you will notice it over a prolonged period. It is advisable to get an injection of more fillers after at least six months if you want to retain the new look throughout.
Are There Any Side Effects from Lip Fillers Treatment?
Lip augmentation does not have a lot of risks. The fillers are less likely to cause an adverse reaction because they contain naturally occurring components. Even so, some minimal side effects might occur. Examples include swelling and bruising of the lips. You may also feel a slight discomfort at the injection site during and after the procedure. However, the effects do not last long – they recede after three days.
It is important to note that augmentation may trigger a breakout for people with cold sores. As such, we will not do the procedure if you have herpes at the time. In addition, going ahead may cause further complications that could be harmful to you.
