Lip injections usually involve a certain amount of filler being injected into the lips. The type of filler that is injected into the treatment area can vary by the clinic you choose and the preferences of the cosmetic surgeon. Common fillers that are used for lip augmentation include hyaluronic acid gel fillers and polyacrylamide fillers. Both have their own range of advantages and disadvantages, which you can always discuss with your qualified injector before the cosmetic procedure takes place. Since some compounds used in dermal filler injections could cause an allergic reaction, it is important to keep an eye out for symptoms of such allergies during your recovery. Excessive swelling, pain and redness can be signs of allergies. If you suspect allergies, it is important to contact your cosmetic clinic as soon as possible, as this requires immediate intervention.
The benefits of lip fillers are mainly aesthetic in nature. They are obtained by patients who want to increase their lip volume. However, they can also be obtained as a part of a rejuvenation treatment, reducing the wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth. Patients will find that the benefits of lip filler are mostly unique to them. Since there are various reasons why a patient can obtain lip filler treatment, it is quite advantageous to speak to your cosmetic surgeon about the reason why you wish to obtain lip fillers. Based on your consultation, the cosmetic surgeon can determine if treatment with lip is the best option for you, or if there is another more suitable treatment option out there.
Several factors could influence the cost of lip fillers. The most common factor influencing lip filler
price is the type of lip filler used to add volume to the lips and pout. Evidently, the pricing of lip fillers
such as hyaluronic acid gel will be different than polyacrylamide fillers.
In addition to your initial treatment cost, some patients have to think about the fact that hyaluronic
acid filler dissolves over time. In other words, patients may need to return for a maintenance
treatment to maintain their desired outcome. Therefore, it requires repeated cosmetic treatments that can influence the overall cost.
Of course, patients who want plump lips with fewer maintenance sessions can choose
polyacrylamide fillers. While the cost is different from hyaluronic acid gel fillers, these compounds
provide results that are more long-term. However, do consider that they can cause an allergic
reaction, so it is important to seek an experienced cosmetic surgeon for your first time.

As was the case with the benefits of lip fillers, this question is best answered by the patient. There is a large aesthetic component with lip enhancement treatments such as lip filler, so patients who seek an aesthetic improvement of the lip region or obtain the procedure as an addition to a skincare or rejuvenation treatment will generally be happy with the plumping results of lip filler procedure can provide.
Hyaluronic acid gel fillers tend to last approximately six months, while polyacrylamide provides a more long-term effect. However, some patients will find that their fillers last longer after repeated treatments. Longevity can also vary from patient to patient, as some need to return for maintenance sessions sooner while others can wait a little longer.
Patients can experience some side effects such as minor discomfort post-treatment. While the medical team will always apply some numbing cream before the injection is done, some discomfort can be expected once that numbing cream wears off. It is also not uncommon to have a tiny bruise at the location where the injection was done.
An increasingly large number of patients now opt for Lip Fillers and anti-wrinkle procedures. If you’re looking for lip fillers and want to know the lip fillers cost, get a free no-obligation consultation at the Melbourne Dr Lanzer Clinic.Request consultation
