One of the main questions clients often ask us is “how much do lip fillers hurt?”
Considering that the treatment is still relatively new, we completely understand and also welcome these kinds of questions.
At Dermedica, we pride ourselves on giving our clients as much information as possible about all of our treatments. To help you feel informed, here are a couple of questions we regularly get asked about one of our most popular treatments – lip fillers.
How much do lip fillers hurt?
The question above is one of the ones we hear the most at Dermedica and rightfully so.
Lip fillers are a cosmetic treatment, and while we completely understand the fear and trepidation surrounding injections, needles and medical procedures, at Dermedica we do everything we can to ease your worries and make the treatment as pain-free as possible.
Experienced doctor Dr Teh performs every client’s lip filler treatments at Dermedica. You can rest assured you are in competent hands. With over 20 years of experience, Dr Teh has developed a gentle approach to the treatment so you feel completely comfortable throughout the procedure.
Prior to your treatment, we can use ice and numbing cream and local anaesthetic, which helps to numb your lips and minimise any pain. With this combination of technique and gentle approach, Dr Teh takes whatever steps necessary to ensure that your lip filler experience is a pleasant one.
How will my lips feel afterwards?
After having lip fillers, some clients experience some swelling and redness, which usually subsides within a few days. While a handful of clients lay low and take it easy for a couple of days, most people don’t experience any effects and return to all their usual activities right away.
When you have lip filler treatment at Dermedica, we offer a world-class facility to ensure your recovery period is as minimal as possible. We also provide aftercare service care, including follow-ups, monitoring of the lips, reviews and touch-ups (if required). This way, you come out of your treatment as comfortable as you were going into it.
Will lip fillers make me look fake or plastic?
One of the things our clients most often say when they come in for lip filler consultations is, “I still want to look like me.”
We want you to look like yourself as well.
At Dermedica, we don’t want you to look puffy or end up with a “trout pout.” Instead, we focus on what you’d like to change about your lips while also keeping in mind their natural shape and look. By personalising each treatment to our clients and their face shape, we can keep you looking natural and not ‘overdone’.
Are lip fillers safe?
At Dermedica, we genuinely care about the wellbeing of our patients. With over 20 years of experience, Dr Teh brings a level of expertise that prioritises safety as much as satisfactory results. We only use the best products in the safety of our world-class facility so you can feel as comfortable and confident as possible before you come in for your treatment.
To help ease any concerns you may have around lip fillers, Dr Teh always discusses the treatment plan and procedure with you during your initial consultation. During this session, she will answer any detailed questions you may have.
Whether you have questions about how much lip fillers will hurt, what to expect during the treatment or what you’ll look like after, at Dermedica, we are more than qualified to answer all of them.
