Our boutique style clinic ensures your visit is highly personalized, professional and relaxed.
Are lip filler injections painful?
There was a time when lip injections meant you had to endure the pain or the doctor had to make use of an injected freezing product…those days are gone. The great news is that Lip fillers now contain lidocaine which makes the process far more comfortable for the client. While a topical numbing agent can also be used, it is usually not needed because of the inclusion of lidocaine within the lip filler products themselves.
How much does lip filler cost?
Lip filler is sold by the syringe, which is sometimes referred to as a “vial”. The cost of lip filler and dermal filler injections will depend upon the product that is used along with the number of syringes/vials required to give you the result you are looking for. Because of the volume of botox & filler injections delivered at our clinic we are able to secure preferential pricing – savings that we pass on to you! Additionally we have bi-annual specials …sign up for our newsletter to ensure that you don’t miss out.
Are lip fillers permanent?
Lip fillers are not permanent. Lip fillers are created by HA ( hyaluronic acid base) which means the products will metabolize and eventually disappear over the coming months. Hyaluronic acid is safe and a natural occurring sugar that is already found in our bodies, such as in our joints. The innate ability of HA to bind water makes this entire range of fillers a perfect choice for maintaining the smoothness and volume of your skin. The safety record for use of HA for injectables is excellent – that said, we encourage everyone to exercise due diligence when selecting an injector! If you are someone who has an unfortunate experience with lip fillers elsewhere, we can discuss the safety & benefits of having our injectors breaking the filler down.
Is there downtime after lip fillers?
After a lip filler / lip augmentation treatment, most clients find they are able to resume to regular activities. That said, one may experience some swelling and if this occurs, it typically disappears within one week – 10 days. Tiny bruises at the injection point can also occur and these are easily covered up with makeup or foundation. To minimize the risk of bruising, we recommend that you avoid the use of any blood thinning products such as aspirin (check with your physician), ginseng, Vitamin E for 1-2 weeks prior. Avoid alcohol 24-48 hours prior.
We frequently have specials on injectables, whereby they are combined with other treatments such as Photo Facial, Ultherapy™, Exilis, etc for dramatic results.
