Lip Filler Treatments
Lip Filler Treatments
We are all born with a pair of lips. Our genes and how we live our lives determine whether we are gifted with defined or luscious lips. Thin lips can sometimes make people conscious. Sometimes thin lips can result in a lot of the gums showing up when you smile. Lip filler treatments from our expert doctors, however, can help you achieve the pair of your dreams.
How can lip filler treatments help?
Dermal fillers are injected into the borders to add definition. Dermal fillers injected into the body of your lips make them plumper and add volume. Lip filler treatments can soften lines, minimize wrinkles and help shape the lips overall. If you’re looking for subtle or dramatic changes to your lips without any kind of surgery or long-term treatment, dermal fillers may be just what you need!
How long do lip fillers last?
Many commonly ask how long lip filler treatments last. The answer varies, as it depends on individual factors and the type of lip filler used. Lip filler treatments can last from six to twelve months. Though in some cases lip fillers may last even longer. In order for lip fillers to remain effective for a prolonged period of time, patients should follow the recommendations of their medical professional, such as avoiding smoking or large fluctuations in temperature. Ultimately, lip fillers are an excellent way to achieve fuller lips with long-lasting effects depending on individual treatment options.

Frequently asked questions
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to add volume to the lips. The most common type of filler is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the human body that helps keep skin hydrated and plump. When HA is injected it adds volume and definition to give them a youthful look.
How painful are dermal fillers?
The pain level will vary depending on the type of dermal filler being used and the area being treated, but dermal fillers generally cause some minor discomfort. Most patients describe dermal fillers as just uncomfortable, with a burning or biting sensation when the filler is injected into the tissue. Fortunately, we offer numbing creams or local anesthetics, which can help minimize any discomfort experienced during dermal fillers.
Are there any risks involved?
Like any medical procedure, there are some risks associated with dermal filler injections—namely bruising, swelling, redness and pain at the injection site. However, these side effects should subside within a few days after treatment. Lastly, it's essential that you find a reputable cosmetic doctor who has experience administering dermal fillers so that you get optimal results with minimal risk involved. Dr Thuva Amuthan trains many healthcare professional across the country in his expert techniques.
What to avoid after dermal fillers?
After dermal fillers treatment, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your doctor. Generally, it is best to AVOID:
- Touching the area or applying any make up for at least 3 hours
- Hot drinks or enviroments such as baths, steam or sauna for at least a day
- Drinking alcohol or strenuous exercise for the first day
- direct sun exposure for the following week
- Additionally, it is advised not to massage or apply pressure to the injection site in order to give the filler enough time to settle and achieve desired effects.
How can you make the reults last?
Dermal fillers are a great way to look energetic and refreshed, but many people want to make their dermal fillers last as long as possible. One of the best things you can do to extend the life of dermal fillers is to take preventative measures, such as:
- staying hydrated
- wearing sunscreen
- avoiding cigarettes and excessive alcohol.
You should also visit your doctor for regular follow-up appointments. This will help them monitor the dermal filler’s progress and provide assistance if there are any issues. Additionally, it is important to set realistic expectations about results and timelines as it does take time for dermal fillers to fully set in. Taking all these steps will enable dermal fillers to last longer than originally anticipated.
