Lip filler results are visible immediately - but the initial swelling +/- bruising
will make the lips look bigger for 2-7 days post-treatment. The final
result will be seen in 1-2 weeks and this can last for 6-12 months.
Why do people want lip fillers?
One of the key differences between male and female features is the lip size and shape. For women, subtle differences in their lip shape and size compared to men help convey a more feminine look that we perceive as being more beautiful and more sensual.
Different faces and ethnicities will of course have different proportions - so understanding what makes a face and lip beautiful when combined together is a key skill that needs to be respected by injectors. The goal of lip fillers isn't to add significant volume, it's about maximising the key details of the lip so that they look more youthful, defined and proportioned when compared to the rest of the face.
Using dermal fillers, we can create stunning small details or even improve the skin hydration. Those who are more confident and appropriate may choose to have more pout to the lip for a more edgy and bolder look.
How do our lips age?
Our lips inevitably lose their once youthful plumpness as we age. The lips eventually become thinner, drier and are a tell-tell sign of ageing. Other changes occur around the mouth such as flattening of the 'philtral columns' - the two raised skin lines between the nose and the upper lip, down turning of the corners of the mouth and fine lines above the upper lip.
But things are even more complicated than that, including how the mouth relates to how the rest of the face and in particular, the chin and nose.
What can I expect from lip fillers?
Lip fillers are a commonly requested treatment. Regardless of what lips you've seen on Instagram, Dr Jake will work with your lip shape to enhance and compliment your natural features. Looking at your face as a whole, it may be suggested to delay lip fillers in your treatment journey until other complimentary features of the face have been softened or tweaked.
New comers to lip fillers will always be worried about looking too big or swollen and it's true, for 2-7 days your lips will be bigger than the final intended result. But Dr Jake will work with your needs and establish your cosmetic goals before going anywhere near the lips with a needle. He only stocks the world's leading filler range and the specific filler will be discussed with you during your consultation.
