In this age of social media and celebrity culture, the image or the perception of beauty is
getting more important to people. Celebrity culture has played a big part in popularising lip augmentation procedures, from the trend-setting Kardashians to the endless waves of K-pop stars, all of them show off full voluptuous lips, which are a sign of beauty, youth, sex appeal and vibrance.
What Are Lip Fillers and What Are the Benefits?
Lip augmentation is mainly done through the use of injectable Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers. The goal is to create smooth lips with adequate volume and a natural appearance.
Aging results in a loss of lip volume, loss of lip contour, flattening of the cupid’s bow (center top of the upper lip), drying of the lips and the appearance of perilabial wrinkles. Lip fillers can be used to correct all these issues.
How Do Lip Fillers Work to Make Patients Look Better?
At S Aesthetics Clinic, we focus on two main aspects when doing lip augmentation: Definition and Volume.
Improving definition improves the shape of our lips, giving patients the desired look that they want. This is done by enhancing the borders of our lips, also known as “the vermillion border”. Defined lips not only look better, but also look natural and beautiful.
For patients with thinner lips, we can improve the appearance and volume, to give a fuller, pouty and sexy look.
What Other Conditions Can Lip Fillers Alleviate?
Some patients have imbalances or asymmetries in their lips, and these can be easily
corrected by HA fillers, using the concepts mentioned above.
Other patients just have dry cracked lips but are not interested in changing the shape or size of their lips. This can easily be treated as well with HA lip fillers.
Who is Suitable for Lip Filler Treatment?
Often, patients see celebrities with full, luscious lips and come to us asking for the same lip shape and size. However, lips that may look great on one person might not look as
appealing on other’s. Dr Ashley will do a full consultative assessment to plan out ideal lips, each pair customised for an individual patient.
How Are Lip Fillers Delivered, and Does It Hurt?
Before the procedure, numbing cream will be applied to both the upper and lower lips to
The lip fillers are then given via injection. Despite the numbing cream, some areas of the lips are more sensitive. Dr Ashley will do his utmost to ensure your comfort and give you the desired outcome.
What Kinds of Lip Fillers Are Available at S Aesthetics Clinic?
At S Aesthetics Clinic, we use Juvederm Volbella and Volift for lip augmentation. We also
use Restylane Kysse, a product that is designed specifically for lips.
For simple hydration of cracked and dry lips, we use Teosyal Redensity 1 or Restylane Vital light. Both of these products are skin boosters and are very soft. They will easily solve the problem of dry lips without adding any unwanted volume.
What is the Downtime for Lip Filler Procedure?
Some swelling after the procedure is perfectly normal. This will last for about 2-3 days, and each patient will have a review with Dr Ashley for an assessment and touch up if needed.
How Long Will the Effect of Lip Fillers Last?
Typically, lip fillers last for about 9-12 months.
What is the Estimated Cost for Lip Fillers?
The above fillers are retailing at $688 for the first syringe. Typically for lip fillers, only 1
syringe is required.
