Our Treatments

Lip Fillers

Injectable lip fillers serve various purposes like adding volume to thin lips, minimizing lip wrinkles, moisturizing the lips, and primarily achieving a full and pouty lip appearance. This provides us with the opportunity to enhance the contours of our lips, providing us with the shape or pout we aspire to achieve.

Lip fillers can also be used to help patients with dry and cracked lips by increasing hydration and minimizing chapped lips.

As our lips have the thinnest skin, only hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers should be used. At BMF Clinic, we choose JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA®, a HA-filler designed to add volume that lasts for 6 – 9 months.

What can lip fillers do? 

Lip fillers are employed to enhance thin lips, diminish lip lines, moisturize the lips, and frequently to achieve fuller, more pouty lips. When administered skillfully, they can alter the emphasis of one's appearance and harmonize the facial profile. It is crucial to recognize that not everyone's lips are suited for significant volume augmentation. Factors such as face shape and other features must also be taken into account. 


Lip fillers for hydration 

Fillers are also beneficial for individuals experiencing dry and cracked lips. Skinboosters, a specific type of hyaluronic acid filler, are exceptionally soft and primarily utilized to moisturize rather than augment. This treatment can be applied to the lips to boost hydration and alleviate chapping. Skinboosters used on the lips provide less volume compared to standard fillers but offer a more significant hydrating effect.


What can you expect?

Achieving a well-defined structure and fuller lips. Reduction of lip lines and enhanced hydration are also expected.

While some patients may desire lips resembling those of Kylie Jenner, with significant volume enhancement, we consider your individual facial shape and features. We will recommend the appropriate lip volume accordingly.

How long do fillers last?

Generally, fillers last for 12 months. Different type of fillers are meant for different areas of the face and have different longevity due to the filler material. 

Does the filler completely dissolve away?

Typically, fillers dissolve naturally over time as the body breaks them down into water. However, there have been instances where fillers lasted longer than expected. In these cases, a dissolver called hyalase is injected to break down the filler into water.

What are the possible side effects?

Like any medical procedure, injectable procedures carry potential side effects.

The most common side effects of injections include bruising and swelling, which occur when a larger blood vessel beneath the skin is injured during the injection. Typically, bruising and swelling subside within 4-7 days.

One of the most serious side effects of filler injections is vessel occlusion, where the filler obstructs blood flow in a crucial blood vessel, potentially leading to skin necrosis or even blindness.

There's a misconception that only nose fillers can cause blindness, but fillers injected anywhere on the face can pose this risk. Blindness occurs when filler material blocks blood flow to the optic nerve in the eye. The proximity of blood vessels supplying the eye to the nose makes nose fillers particularly risky. Skin necrosis, the death of skin cells, occurs when blood vessels supplying a specific area of skin become blocked.

Understanding facial blood vessels is crucial to minimizing these risks, emphasizing the importance of seeking treatment from experienced doctors. 

What should I avoid after fillers?

Avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol for at least 24 hours. Avoid any facial massage for at least 2 weeks.

What is the downtime for recovery?

There is almost no downtime when undergoing fillers. After the procedure, clients can go back to most of their daily activities except for the strenuous ones. During the recovery period, a proper sleeping position must be observed especially in the first few days. Sleeping facing up is advised. Avoid touching, massaging, or pricking around the injection area to avoid complications or infections.
