At Karratha Smiles Dental Centre, we can help you restore lost volume to your lips, improve their definition and enhance your pout.

You may choose lip augmentation if your lips have lost their shape and definition over time, or if your lips are naturally thin and you’d prefer fuller a smile. Because lips become thinner and less plump with age and sun exposure, lip enhancement can temporarily restore a more vibrant appearance.

If there are other areas of your face or mouth that you want to enhance, lip enhancement can be combined with other cosmetic treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections to temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines and blemishes.

What are the benefits of lip fillers?

Lip augmentation using injectable fillers and has a number of advantages over more invasive cosmetic surgery procedures. This treatment:

  • does not require surgery
  • uses natural compounds produced in the skin
  • usually takes 30 minutes to complete
  • is non-permanent, lasting between 6 and 12 months.

What do lip fillers involve?

Our dental clincians will explain the lip enhancement procedure during your consultation, to help you decide whether it’s the right option for you and to plan your treatment.

Because this is a non-invasive procedure, sedation is not usually required. Dermal fillers are injected into the lips and around the mouth in targeted sites where they will add volume and definition.

Depending on how many sites are being treated, the procedure usually takes between 15 and 30 minutes. You may experience minor swelling from the injections that can be relieved by applying ice, and you will see the results of your lip enhancement right away.

Dermal fillers are naturally absorbed into the body over time. Your lip enhancement will usually last between 6 and 12 months. After that time, you can schedule another treatment with us.
