Fast Facts

Skin Resus, your specialist lip enhancement clinic in Perth.

  • Lip enhancement is also commonly referred to as lip fillers, lip augmentation, lip injections, lip rejuvenation or dermal fillers.
  • Our lip enhancement treatments are great for restoring fullness, plumping thin lips and treating lip lines and smokers lines.
  • Expected down time ranges from 0 – 3 days. Swelling will often be present and bruising may occur.
  • The duration of results can range from 4 – 8 months, depending on the product used and the individual’s response.

What Is Lip Enhancement?

Lip enhancement using lip fillers is one of the most popular treatments at our clinic. Having full, plump lips is often associated with youth, beauty and good health. Whether you were born with thin lips or your lips are thinning due to the natural ageing process, lip augmentation with dermal fillers is a safe and effective way to enhance them.

Filler treatment for lines both above and below the lip borders is also a popular and effective treatment which we perform frequently.

The lip fillers we use are made of a substance that naturally occurs in the skin. They are man-made, animal-free and allergy-free, and are broken down by the body over time.

Before & After Lip Enhancement*

*Individual results may vary

What Is A Lip Enhancement Treatment Like?

Lip enhancement with dermal fillers is a quick and easy process which usually takes about 30 minutes. The sterile gel is injected into the lips and along the lip border with a very fine needle. The filler we use contains local anaesthetic and most Skin Resus patients find lip enhancement very comfortable. Additional anaesthetic may be used if desired. The results are seen immediately, although swelling is common in this area. Some dermal fillers are more likely to swell than others – the choice of filler will be discussed during your consultation.

Immediately after the treatment, you can expect slight redness, swelling, tenderness or an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal reaction to the treatment and settles soon after. Bruising can occasionally occur. If you are prone to bruising, there’s a few things you can do before your treatment to minimise this, so ask us about it when you book.

How Much Does Lip Enhancement Cost?

At Skin Resus, lip enhancement treatment is tailored to your specific needs, so the price of the treatment is calculated individually. As a guide, 1ml of dermal filler will give a beautiful result in most cases. If it’s your first time or you prefer a more subtle result, 0.5 ml filler can be used.

Treatment of vertical lip lines or peri-oral lines is usually performed with a fine-grade filler product and as with lip enhancement, the volume of filler depends on your own features and the look you wish to achieve.

When Will I See The Results?

Results can be seen immediately after lip enhancement, though some swelling and bruising may be present for a few days after. If you are having lip enhancement done for a special event, we recommend that you do this at least 4 weeks before. If you are prone to bruising, there’s a few things you can do before your treatment to minimise this – see below for our top tips to minimise bruising.

How Long Does Lip Enhancement Last?

Lip injections will usually last 4 – 8 months, depending on the product used and on your individual metabolism. Those with a fast metabolism will tend to need re-treatment sooner than those with slower metabolisms.

Are There Any Side Effects From A Lip Enhancement Treatment?

Lip enhancement treatment is very safe, but occasional side effects can occur. These include:

  • Redness and swelling around the injection site.
  • Bruising can occur at the site of the injections and can occasionally be quite marked.
  • Additional treatment may be needed to achieve the desired result.
  • Infection is very rare, but is possible with any procedure that pierces the skin.
  • Other very rare complications can occur. These will be discussed during your consultation.
