Perth Lip Fillers

Lip fillers PerthIn Perth lip fillers have become a highly sought after, and enquired about cosmetic procedure. Once only a possibility with the rich and famous, cosmetic treatments, such as lip fillers have become a lot more mainstream and accessible by everyday men and women. Celebrities such as movie and television stars, models, music artists and social media influencers, have been the driving force of this increase in this fascination with cosmetic and aesthetic medicine. In particular, lip fillers have seen a dramatic explosion in demand and popularity. The likes of Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johanssen, Jessica Alba, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, the Kardashians and Kylie Jenner, have strongly influenced the desire for what is deemed beautiful and desirable, in lips. Lip fillers Perth can be used to achieve the full, voluptuous, luscious lips of our celebrity beauty icons.

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.

Perth lip fillers, are not only used to increase the volume of the lips

Perth lip fillers, are not only used to increase the volume of the lips, but… they can also be used to correct any asymmetries in the existing lips. Often clients may have one side slightly larger than the other, and this can be rectified through the use of lip fillers. Furthermore, lip fillers can be used to achieve more aesthetically pleasing proportions within the top and bottom lips. Ideally, in Caucasians, we aim to have a slightly bigger bottom lip in comparison to the top lip. A ratio of 1;1.6 top:bottom ratio is the ideal aesthetic. African American. Or Asian women can often achieve a 1:1 ratio, and still look natural. Lip fillers Perth can help achieve more balanced lip proportions, to act in harmony with the rest of the face.

Lip fillers can also be used around the mouth to help improve a number of peri-oral issues. ‘Smokers lines’ or ‘pucker lines’, the fine vertical lips found above the top lip, and below the bottom lip, can be treated and softened through the use of lip fillers. These lines become almost universal as we age, and so are a common area of concern in the middle-aged to older population. Lip fillers can also be used to in the corners of the mouth. As we age, the corners of our mouth tend to turn down, leading to a sad appearance. Lip fillers can be used to create an upturn in the corners of the mouth, leading to a more happy and pleasing facial aesthetic, Lip fillers can also be used to soften ‘marionette lines’, and reduce the appearance of early jowls. So it is clear that lip fillers are very versatile, and have a lot more functionality than just achieving more voluminous lips.

However, as the lip fillers are hydrophilic (that is attract lots of water), the full effect of lip augmentation may be seen up to a few weeks later as the filler swells and matures.

Some factors that may affect the longevity of the Perth Lip rejuvenation treatment include the metabolism of the patient, and other lifestyle activities including physical activity, smoking, sun exposure, and weight loss.

What are the risks or side-effects of Lip Rejuvenation Treatments?

Perth Lip Rejuvenation treatments are by performed by a very experienced and qualified Cosmetic Doctor. Lip Augmentation is a very popular, common, and safe procedure. The dermal filler used is made from Hyaluronic Acid, which is biocompatible with our own skin, and is consequently non-allergenic. Previously, in the not too distant past, collagen was used as the dermal fillers, and this was associated with allergic reactions in a significant proportion of clients.

The main risks of lip augmentation or lip rejuvenation treatments include bleeding or bruising. Lips have a large blood supply, so are at significant risk of bruising post lip augmentation procedures. The use of blood thinners, anti-inflammatory usage, fish or krill oil, garlic, and alcohol, will all increase the risk of bleeding or bruising. Discontinuation of any medication prior to the treatment should be discussed with the Doctor at Lip Rejuvenation Perth.

Clients with a history of cold sores, should commence a course of prophylactic anti-viral treatment after the lip augmentation procedure, as the treatment can trigger a flare-up of a cold sore. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should not have lip augmentation or rejuvenation treatments.
