Dermal fillers can be used to plump up lips, restoring lost volume, fullness and definition. Ashbourne Aesthetics uses specific fillers for the lips to achieve a natural look. Lip borders can be defined and the shape and size of the lips can be enhanced. This treatment is also ideal for reducing lines and creases around the mouth area.
Your nurse practitioner will inject small quantities of filler into the border of the lips or the body of the lips depending on the desired effect. The process can be uncomfortable so topical anaesthetic will be applied to reduce any discomfort. Also, the filler itself contains anaesthetic. It should take approximately 30 minutes and the effects are immediate.
Swelling or redness are common side effects, but such complaints are very temporary and should subside shortly after the procedure.
The effects are immediate and the results last approximately 6-9 months.
