What can I expect after a lip filler treatment?
It is quite normal to experience some bruising and swelling after your treatment, which should resolve itself after a few days. In rare cases, patients may experience delayed swelling, redness, infection, and the activation of cold sores on the lips. Once any side-effects have subsided, you will notice fuller, more symmetrical lips as well as reduced appearance of wrinkles and scars. Lip enhancement results can last up to 12 months.

Your aesthetic physician will create a customised treatment plan based on your desired outcome and unique facial features, although you can communicate your preferences.

If you are looking for a more noticeable increase in volume, you may opt for a plumper pout, while a more subtle effect can be achieved by adding modest volume.
Are lip injections temporary?
