Lip Fillers Wide variety of dermal fillers offered for lip treatments.

Many of us have thinner lips than we’d like, and as we grow older our lips become thinner, flatter and less defined as our bodies produce less of the hyaluronic acid that’s essential for volume.

Here at Emma J Aesthetics in Inverness, we provide advanced lip fillers to help restore volume. We understand how important shape and definition are and use VOLIFT®, VOLBELLA® and ULTRA 3 for long-lasting results. These fillers are developed specifically for the lips, perioral lines sometime know as smokers lines. They consist of a smooth gel with a soft, natural feel that fills in lip lines, enhances contours and redefines the lip outline while hyaluronic acid retains moisture.

How lip fillers make the difference

Lip fillers can transform your lips in various ways. These include:

  • Lip fillers for a fuller, youthful look
  • Redefining and contouring flat, shapeless lips (particularly if the cupid’s bow lacks definition)
  • Enhancing the vermillion border (the outline of the lips)

Your questions answered

How do lip fillers work?

When we are young, collagen and elastin renew constantly. But as we reach adulthood and grow older, production slows down considerably. Lip fillers work by replenishing your lips with hyaluronic acid to replace lost volume and boost definition.

How long does the treatment take?

Treatments can take up to one hour. This is to allow for a consultation and additional questions answered.

How long do the results last?

Volbella, Volift and the ULTRA 3 range can last up to 12 – 15 months.

Is the treatment painful?

Most of the fillers integrate into your own tissues so minimal disruption of the tissues is experienced. You will be offered topical anaesthetic (cream) or a dental block anaesthetic for lip procedures. Ice packs will also help reduce any discomfort and swelling. The products also contain lidocaine (anaesthetic) or are licensed to have anaesthetic added to them to help ease comfort of treatment.

Will the area treated be swollen or red?

There will initially be some swelling and perhaps redness, which will subside soon after the treatment. Ice packs will help minimise swelling. Some people return to work straight after filler dependent, although some swelling may last a day or two. There may also be some bruising. This can be covered up with concealer until it resolves.

Are lip fillers safe?

Lip fillers are an extremely safe treatment. Allergic reactions are very rare.

How should I care for the area following treatment?

– Avoid touching of treatment area
– Avoid massage of the area – Do not apply make up for 12 hours afterwards
– Avoid extensive or heat exposure

Will the area feel hard or lumpy?

You are likely to feel the filler initially, however, most of the fillers integrate so readily into your own tissue you may not feel much of the product.
