Why choose lip volume treatment

At Nitai Clinic in Melbourne, lip rejuvenation treatment involves the injection of a substance that adds volume to the target area. When injected into the upper or lower lip, or both, it adds volume and fullness. Our aesthetic treatment for fuller lips offers a customisable approach, allowing patients to change their lip size, shape, and symmetry based on their aesthetic preferences.

Who is a candidate for lip treatment?

Suitable candidates for this treatment aim to address the loss of volume in the lips, lip asymmetry, fine lines and wrinkles around the lips and achieve a specific lip shape or size. In addition, they must be in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding what the treatment can and cannot achieve.

Your consultation

Depending on the natural shape and structure of the lips, the cosmetic physician determines the right lip proportions and appropriate dose of lip treatment for volume loss to achieve the planned outcomes.

The lip ratios differ as per the facial features of the patient. Therefore, all the desired values are calculated, and the patient is notified of appropriate doses of lip volume treatment. Once the patient approves, the cosmetic physician will administer the treatment to the target areas.

Lip rejuvenation procedure

The process begins with a consultation with our cosmetic physician. During this period, he or she will assess the patient’s lips, goals, and expectations. The patient’s medical history will also be evaluated to determine any factors affecting the treatment outcome. After determining that the patient is a suitable candidate, a personalised treatment plan is created to cater to their needs and goals.

Before the treatment, the cosmetic physician will apply a topical numbing cream to the lips to minimise discomfort during the injection process. Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, the lips and surrounding areas are cleaned using an antiseptic solution.

The cosmetic physician will then inject the substance into targeted areas of the lips to add volume. While a numbing cream is applied to the lip areas needing treatment, the patient may experience a stinging or pinching sensation during the injection process. During facial volume treatment, the cosmetic physician will regularly assess the patient’s reaction to the injected substance and the appearance of the lips. Depending on the patient’s lip condition and aesthetic goals, an additional amount of the substance may be injected.

After the injections, the cosmetic physician may gently massage the lips to distribute the substance evenly. The treated area will be then cleaned with an antiseptic solution.

How much does lip volume treatment (lip fillers) cost in Melbourne?

The cost of lip injections depends on several factors, such as:

  • The practitioner’s fee: Practitioners offering lip volume treatment may charge different professional fees depending on their experience, expertise, and reputation.
  • Type of lip volume treatment: The cost of the treatment will depend on the type of substance to be used for injections. Lip injections may differ with regard to their composition, brand, and duration of results.
  • Amount of substance to be injected: The quantity of the substance required to achieve the patient’s aesthetic goals will affect the overall cost of the treatment.
  • Location of the clinic or medical facility: The location of the clinic or medical facility where the treatment will be performed can influence the cost.
  • Additional Services: These include complementary services or packages, consultation fees for the initial assessment and discussion of treatment options, and fees for post-treatment care, follow-up appointments, and any necessary touch-up treatments.

Recovery & Aftercare tips

Following lip volume treatment, patients may experience swelling, bruising, pain, and other discomfort in the injection sites. To address these concerns, the cosmetic physician will provide post-treatment instructions. These include the following:

  • Avoid touching or rubbing the treated area immediately after the procedure to prevent irritation, redness, pain, infection, or displacement of the injected substance.
  • Apply ice packs or cold compresses to the lips as advised to help reduce swelling and discomfort within 24-48 hours after the treatment. Do not apply ice directly to the treated area, which can cause ice burns.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise or activities that may put a strain on the lips for at least 24 hours after the treatment to prevent further swelling.
  • Drink two to three litres of water daily and increase your intake of fruits rich in water content to stay hydrated.
  • Wear a broad-spectrum lip balm with SPF when going outdoors to prevent skin discolouration in the treated area.
  • Refrain from consuming hot or spicy foods and beverages as they can cause lip irritation and further swelling.
  • Sleep with your head elevated using two to three pillows to reduce swelling and promote lymphatic drainage from the lips. Using a reclining chair when resting or sleeping is also a good option.
  • Attend any scheduled follow-up appointments with your practitioner to assess the results of lip volume treatment, make necessary adjustments, and address any concerns or questions.
  • Avoid taking blood-thinning medications, supplements, or alcohol for at least 24-48 hours after the treatment to lower the risk of bruising.
  • Avoid contact sports, as this can lead to displacement of the injected substance.
  • Be patient and allow the substance to settle and integrate with the surrounding tissues. The results will become noticeable in about a week or when lip swelling completely disappears.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is lip volume treatment made of?

The treatment is made from a substance found throughout the human body, mostly in the skin, where it acts as a bridge to transfer essential nutrients from the blood to the skin. This substance also attracts and retains water to keep the skin hydrated while also facilitating the delivery of vital nutrients necessary for cell growth and encouraging the production of elastin, a protein crucial for skin elasticity and firmness.

When should I get lip rejuvenation treatment?

You should plan ahead and have the treatment done a week or so in advance of any special events to ensure that any swelling has subsided.

How long does aesthetic lip treatment last?

The effect of the treatment typically lasts around 9-12 months. However, this may vary from patient to patient and depends on factors such as the amount of substance used and adherence to post-treatment instructions.

Is lip treatment painful?

The lips are one of the most sensitive areas of the body. Because of this, some discomfort, such as a stinging or pinching sensation, may be experienced during the injection process. An anaesthetic cream can be applied to the lips before treatment to numb the area and reduce discomfort.

What should I avoid before the treatment?

If you have a cold sore, it is best to wait until it has cleared up before undergoing the treatment.

What should I avoid after the lip treatment?

It is advisable to avoid lip make-up for 12 hours after the treatment. However, lip balm may be used to prevent dryness. In addition, prolonged sun exposure should be avoided for at least 48 hours after the treatment. The cosmetic physician will be able to advise you on proper aftercare for your individual circumstances.

Do lip injections feel weird?

When larger amounts of the substance are used, you may experience sensations such as pressure, tingling, or discomfort at the injection sites.

What parts of the lips can be injected?

Lip injections may be administered to the top and bottom lip to add volume and fullness. The substance can also be injected into the vermillion border to create a more pronounced lip shape. It can also be injected into the Cupid’s bow (the inverted “V” shape in the centre of the upper lip) to highlight the natural curve and shape of the upper lip. The substance can also be injected into the philtrum columns (the vertical lines that extend from the base of the nose to the upper lip) to increase the vertical height of the upper lip. In addition, the substance can also be injected into the oral commissures (the corners of the mouth where the upper and lower lips meet) to lift the corners of the mouth.

How many ml of treatment substance do you need?

Our cosmetic physician recommends patients begin with 1 ml of lip injections to change the lip shape. The results are visible within a few days of treatment. Patients may return after about two weeks for an additional 1 ml dose for a noticeable increase in lip volume.

Will I feel bumps and lumps on the lips post-treatment?

Bumps and lumps may occur after the treatment. However, in this case, our cosmetic physician can massage the lips to redistribute the injected substance – we do not recommend you do this yourself.

Do lips swell in size after lip rejuvenation?

The patient may experience swelling at the site where the substance has been administered. The swelling usually differs for every patient. However, it is temporary and generally goes away within a few days.

How long does treatment last?

TGA & FDA-approved lip volume treatment generally last for about 6 to 12 or 12 to 18 months. The results can vary depending on the patient’s lip condition, aesthetic goals, and adherence to post-treatment instructions.

Can the effects of lip volume treatment be reversed?

Yes, the effects of lip volume treatment that makes use of a naturally occurring substance in the body can be reversed. For patients who are unhappy with their results or experience complications after the treatment, an enzyme called hyaluronidase can be administered to the lip area to break down and dissolve the injected substance.

How often do I need to get lip rejuvenation treatment?

The frequency of getting the treatment depends on several factors, such as the patient’s metabolism, the type of substance injected into the lip area, and aesthetic goals. Typically, the effects of the treatment last between 6 to 12 months before gradually wearing off, at which point touch-up treatments may be needed.

How do I choose the right treatment for me?

This will depend on factors such as the patient’s aesthetic goals and medical history (e.g. the presence of allergies to the substance to be injected). The cosmetic physician can recommend the most suitable treatment based on the patient’s needs and preferences.

Can I wear makeup after getting lip treatment?

It’s recommended to wait until any swelling or bruising has subsided before applying makeup to the treated area to avoid irritation or infection. The cosmetic physician will provide post-treatment instructions that include the right time to wear makeup.

Can I exercise after getting lip volume treatment?

Patients should avoid strenuous exercise or activities that may increase blood flow to the lips for the first 24-48 hours after the treatment. Doing so can help reduce swelling and prevent bruising and lip irritation.

Can I get the treatment if I'm pregnant or breastfeeding?

It’s generally not recommended to undergo the treatment due to potential risks to the baby.

How long does the recovery period last after the lip treatment?

The recovery period after the treatment will depend on the patient’s healing ability and adherence to the post-treatment instructions.

Can I have aesthetic lip rejuvenation if I have dental work scheduled?

It’s best to schedule dental procedures such as cleanings or dental work before or after the treatment (once lip swelling has completely subsided). This is because dental procedures can put pressure on the lips, which can lead to the migration of the injected substance.

Can I drink alcohol after aesthetic lip treatment?

It’s best to avoid alcohol for at least 24-48 hours to prevent bruising and swelling. Alcohol can increase blood flow to the lips and further worsen these symptoms.
