If you are looking at getting lip fillers for the first time, we understand that naturally, you will have a lot of questions. What are the best lip fillers to use, what are lip fillers made of, and will they look natural? 

We’re here to help, so in this blog have prepared a handy lip filler guide for you to help you decide if lip fillers are for you. 

What are lip fillers made of?

Like most dermal fillers, lip fillers are classed as a non-invasive, temporary treatment used to add volume, define, balance, and moisturise the lips. 

Here at Ness Aesthetics, we use lip fillers that are based on Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural humectant that exists naturally in your skin, playing a pivotal role in maintaining moisture, and youthful volume. 

When injected into the lips, Hyaluronic Acid spreads evenly to naturally re-plump the lips, define them, and even address concerns such as gummy smiles, and dryness. 

What are the best lip fillers to use?

When it comes to lip fillers or any type of dermal filler, we recommend opting for ones that are based on Hyaluronic Acid for the best, and most natural-looking results. 

In the clinic, we use premium Teoxane lip fillers, which provide an immediate lift, at the same time as addressing overall skin health and boosting the production of natural collagen and elastin in your body. 

The Teoxane range can also be used in conjunction with mesotherapy procedures to boost skin health, help address hydration within the lips and fill any fine lines that can develop with dryness, and age both on the lips, and around the mouth area. 

The result is a naturally rejuvenated appearance that leaves the skin looking lifted, youthful, and more radiant, whilst feeling hydrated, nourished, and firmer. 

Will they look natural?

Absolutely. At Ness Aesthetics, we strive to only enhance your natural beauty, never change it. We work with your natural features and dimensions to ensure you achieve natural, long-lasting results that make you feel confident and empowered in your skin. 

We believe in a completely holistic approach to aesthetic treatments, which is why we always give you our honest opinion and work with you and your skin to find a suitable solution for you. 

What to expect from Dermal Fillers

Before any procedure, we will invite you in for a consultation to carry out a skin examination and analyse any concerns you have, before recommending a treatment. Once we have identified a suitable treatment, we will explain everything you need to know and make sure you are 100% comfortable before you commit.

Lip fillers are classed as a non-invasive treatment and take around 40 minutes to complete. When you arrive for your procedure, we will apply a topical numbing agent to the area being treated to ease any discomfort. Now, dermal fillers are not considered to be painful, but you may experience a slight sting or discomfort from the needles. 

Following your treatment, you may notice some redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness, around the lips, but this is completely natural and will heal itself within 2-5 days.

Results are immediate and last between 6 – 12 months. After that, you may require another treatment. There are also some aftercare guidelines to follow to help ensure the longevity of your treatment, these will be discussed with you in detail during your consultation.

Aftercare guidelines include:

• Avoid direct sunlight  

• Keep the area cool with a cold compress to reduce swelling, and don’t apply ice directly onto the area 

• Avoid drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours  

• Avoid strenuous exercise 

• Avoid touching, and massaging the area

• Drink plenty of water

• Avoid excessive heat such as saunas, hot showers, and stoves

Can Lip Fillers be Removed? 

Yes. If for whatever reason you are unhappy with your result, lip fillers can be reversed. To reverse them, we use a special saline solution that simply dissolves the filler to restore your natural look.
