Lip fillers are a gel made from an injectable biodegradable substance called Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic acid is a complex polysaccharide (sugar) found naturally within our skin. Its usual function is to attract and hold lots of water, thereby giving skin hydration, suppleness and elasticity. Given the lip fillers are made from this natural skin component, they are very safe, and have very minimal risks of causing allergy. In previous times, fillers used to be made from collagen, which was animal based, so the collagen lip fillers had a significant risk of allergic reactions.
The most common request when it comes to lip fillers Perth, is for more volume or plumpness of the lips. This can be easily achieved, either by a subtle amount, or by more dramatic levels. The lip fillers usually last 10-12 months, but additional lip fillers can be placed at any stage after the first treatment, if further lip fullness is desired. The effect of the lip fillers is seen immediately, but there may be some swelling, so the final result will be seen when the swelling subsides. Furthermore, as the lip fillers are hydrophilic, that is they attract water, lip fillers will slightly increase in size when the client is well hydrated.
