How Do Lip Fillers Work?
At the Cosmetic Studio Noosa, the lip filler on the sunshine coast that we use is called HA, or hyaluronic acid. This is a complex sugar chain that occurs naturally in and is chemically identical to the HA in the human body. The substance is a gel that in injected under the skin to add volume, reshape and reduce wrinkles in and around the lips. Added benefits are an increase in collagen production and hydration to the areas treated.
Treatment using lip filler on the sunshine coast can take between 30 minutes and an hour. While relatively pain free, we may use a numbing cream or inject numbing anesthetic into the areas being treated. Allow a little more time for this. We want you to be completely comfortable during your procedure.
Are There Side Effects and What Will I Look Like?
Side effects of lip augmentation are relatively minor and may include:
- Swelling – very common and will resolve within 24-48 hours. We will discuss ways to reduce swelling before you leave the studio
- Bruising – when the skin is being punctures, small bruises may form. These should be minor and easily covered with makeup. There are medications that can increase the incidence of bruising. We will discuss this prior to your procedure.
- Discomfort – it there is some discomfort, using an over the counter pain medication and applying ice packs to the area will help. This should resolve quickly. Strenuous activities and using spas or saunas may exacerbate discomfort, so avoiding this for a few days may help.
