Lip enhancement with dermal fillers is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure performed world wide. In most cases, the process is completely safe and can be performed on almost everyone.
Facelab clinicians are very experienced when it comes to lips as most of them have backgrounds in dentistry. This enables them to perform a thorough lip evaluation knowing exactly where and how to perform the treatment. Many of our patients have different desires as to how they would like their lips to look.... We know it is not a one size fits all procedure and that's why we use a range of different fillers and techniques in our augmentations. We select the appropriate product for each individual case so that we can deliver the best results tailored to you.
Fillers used for lip enhancement contain a therapeutic substance (HA) that is found naturally throughout the body. The materials are harmless and the treatment results can last up to one year and beyond.
Thin suture-like threads are inserted under the skin to stimulate collagen and cause smoothing and tightening of the skin. These threads are also used to create a mesh under wrinkles to define certain parts of the lips and face.
Yes, at Facelab we have 2 other treatment options that are excellent in enhancing the volume and shape of your lips. Smooth PDO threads can be placed along the vermillion border of the lips to help define the lip and laser energy can be used to plump the lips in a process referred to as 'LIPLASE'. LIPLASE is great for a quick and temporary lip enhancement and does not involve injections. The effect can last up to 1 week, perfect for a special event, however if repeated weekly 3 - 4 times a longer lasting effect can be achieved, similar to that with fillers.
When placing filler material, it is crucial to follow certain safety precautions. Although not common, filler material can accidentally be injected into a blood vessel blocking the supply of blood to part of the lip. This can result in a catastrophic complication where part of the lip may 'die' resulting in tissue loss, scarring and lip asymmetry. Facelab clinicians are all highly experienced injectors, most with dental surgery backgrounds, so injecting around the mouth and making sure that filler is not injected into a blood vessel is something they have been doing daily for years.
Our clinicians are highly qualified experts who train other doctors and dentists in lip augmentation procedures. They focus on detail to ensure that your lips will look their absolute best.
They do this by carefully injecting fillers in a way that enhances shape and volume to achieve high aesthetics with golden proportions, and always taking into consideration your individual needs or desires. Our technique involves using a roller to enhance the cupids bow, as well as rebuilding the philtral columns when necessary.
The fillers used at Facelab for lip enhancements contain anaesthetic however if desired by the patient a topical anaesthetic can also be used. In rare cases, a dental anaesthetic can be injected inside the mouth to ensure the procedure is totally painless.
All lip enhancements at Facelab are performed following a thorough assessment and consultation. We make it our top priority to give you the lips you want.
Lip Liner with Smooth Threads
Other than volume and shape, Facelab clinicians are skilled in augmenting the vermilion border of the lips with smooth PDO threads that define the edges of the lips and boost their appearance.
Many Facelab clients have struggled with previous trauma, disease, or damage to their mouth, jaws, and teeth, all of which can affect the way the support of the lips and the way they look.
Correcting and augmenting lips with filler materials can restore the fullness and plumpness they had before, and in some cases provide a plumpness they never had all while maintaining natural shape and dimension.
A large number of clients also come to Facelab with concerns regarding ageing. It's completely normal for lips to thin or flatten as you get older, but many people want to stop this process in its tracks!
Facelab clinicians ensure that every lip augmentations performed is natural, gorgeous and safe. The dental backgrounds of our clinicians mean that special consideration is given towards the overall smile and facial structures during the 'reconstruction' of the lips.
Do you know that "duck lip look" often seen in contestants on reality TX shows? FaceLab confidently avoids the common mistakes made by other clinics that perform lip augmentations. Our clinicians utilise the natural form of your lips to ensure your new lips suit the structure of your face maintaining beauty and character especially in the midline where poor lip enhancements can result in the loss of midline detail and the 'cupid's bow'.
The last thing anyone seeking a lip augmentation wants is the feeling of regret or as though they've made a mistake. We want all our patients to have gorgeous natural lips that will leave you feeling excited and confident about your new look.
Despite some occasional bruising and / or swelling in the days following the procedure, the recovery process for our lip augmentations is typically uneventful. Our augmentation results are consistently loved by all our clients!
We keep in contact with you to ensure that you're happy with the results, as we can add additional filler when needed. It's our priority to respond to all our patient's needs and concerns throughout the process so that they feel comfortable, heard, and accommodated!
