Lip Fillers For Full, Beautiful Lips
Perfect lips are sensual and vibrant. Undoubtedly, a full pout is the hallmark of youth.
For many people, full and sensuous lips are high on the wish list for cosmetic lip enhancement and/or restoration. However, as we age, our lips often thin, borders lose their definition and fine lines and wrinkles develop.
The good news is that lips can be restored or enhanced using a material naturally found in the body. Simple, safe and temporary, dermal filler injections can add volume and definition to small or undefined lips. The lip augmentation procedure is also used to remove fine lines and wrinkles, balance the symmetry and add definition to create the perfectly-shaped, plump look.

More Information On Lip Fillers & Enhancements
What parts of the lips can be treated?
There are a number of areas of the lips that can be treated to create the perfectly-shaped lip:
- The fleshy part of the upper and lower lip – these can be plumped with volume to create a fuller look and restore lost volume. To maintain a natural look, it is important that your treating lip enhancement practitioner understands lip anatomy and has a good eye. A natural-looking lip has the top lip slightly smaller than the bottom lip, with both lips tapering to the ends.
- Vermillion border – this is the lip outline, which loses definition with age. Lip fillers can be used to create definition, width and improve lipstick bleeding lines.
- Cupids bow – the little heart shape at the top if upper lip under the nose can be defined and contoured.
- Marionette Lines – the vertical lines from the outside edge of the lips that run down to the chin can be softened with filler.
- Phltrum columns – the vertical contour from the cupids bow to the base of the nose can be redefined.
- Oral commissures – the loss of volume in the corner of the mouth which creates the sad face look can be restored.
Perioral lines – often called smoker lines, these can be reduced with fillers (or Jett Plasma).
Who is suited to lip filler procedures?

Lip fillers are highly effective at achieving the desired results for both types of patients. The lip augmentation practitioners at Laser Skin and Vein Clinic are highly trained and have a great eye for balance and symmetry to achieve a fuller but still natural look.

Frequently Asked Questions
The LSV lip fillers process starts with a complimentary consultation with one of our registered nurses, who will discuss with you what you are looking for and any areas of concern that you may have. Based upon the look you are seeking to achieve and the nurse’s experience in injecting, we will put together a personal treatment plan. This process will also collect your medical history.
If you would like to proceed with any dermal filler treatment, you will have a consultation with one of our doctors. This may be face-to-face in our Adelaide clinic or via FaceTime or Skype depending on the time and day. The doctor will review the treatment plan and your medical history to determine your suitability to the treatment. This consultation is required for your first filler treatment, and annually after that.
Once complete, the treatment can commence:
- Pre treatment: a topical numbing cream is applied to the area.
- Treatment: the dermal filler is injected into the areas that require treatment and smoothed by the practitioner by massaging the product as necessary. You will be fully awake for the procedure and will be able to see instant results.
- Post treatment: you will be provided with some aftercare instructions. Some swelling is normal and will settle down over the next few days. A review will be scheduled to review the treatment results.
We understand the lips are a sensitive area. We use a strong topical numbing cream and an ice pack. In addition, the products used contain anaesthetic, making the treatment relatively comfortable. Our registered nurses are all highly experienced in this procedure and will ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible.
Results will be seen immediately after filler lips injecting. However, post injecting, the lips often become a little swollen. This means that the result immediately after the treatment may not be the final result. The swelling typically resolves within a couple of days.
It is recommended to have a touch-up treatment, depending on the outcome you are looking for – from three months if you want a fuller lip and six to nine months to maintain the current results. This will also add to the duration of the treatment effect.
The result generally last between six to 12 months. The longevity of these lip filler products is variable and each individual may obtain a different result. A plan for regular follow-up treatments to maintain the initial result can be created for you.
Our lip fillers Adelaide treatment provides a lasting but not permanent result, so you can further refine your treatment in tune with changing taste and fashion.
Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid gel, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that contributes to volume and hydration.
Do not use dermal fillers if you are pregnant or breast feeding.
If you’ve previously had cold sores around the mouth, the treatment might provoke an outbreak. If you are prone to cold sores, we recommend that you take preventative cold sore medication before treatment.
Swelling and bruising is a common occurrence with lip fillers but is usually relatively mild and will resolve in 24-72 hours post treatment. We do not recommend having dermal filler treatments within 48 hours of social events, as the extent of swelling and bruising is variable and cannot be guaranteed.
The most serious potential side effect or complication with dermal fillers is the potential to occlude a blood vessel with filler product. This is very rare but requires prompt action if it occurs. You will be provided with post-care instructions and informed on what signs to look out for. In the unlikely event there is an issue, the treatment plan starts with dissolving the filler to restore blood flow and any further treatment would be as advised by one of our doctors.
To avoid swelling and bruising, you should:
- Not take aspirin, ibuprofen, or Advil for one week before and two days after treatment. Panadol is always fine.
- Not take Vitamin E (multivitamins are okay) or St. John’s Wort for two to three days before or after.
- Avoid exercise, except for walking, for 24 hours after the procedure.
- Take arnica tablets up to two weeks prior to the treatment.
