What are Dermal Fillers and what are they used for?
Lips augmentation is achieved by injecting dermal fillers, made out of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance naturally occurring in the body.
This results in fuller, plumper, sexier looking lips.
What can I expect from the treatment?
Dermal fillers are a very effective and minimally invasive way of providing lips augmentation.
Results are immediately visible, right after the treatment, with the best aesthetic results achieved 2-3 weeks after treatment.
Who will perform the treatment and what products do you use?
The treatment is performed by Dr Golfomitsos.
The treatment is delivered using very small needles.
It’s well tolerated.
We use Juvederm and Belotero products. Both products contain Lidocaine anesthetic to increase comfort. Also prior to the treatment a Lidocaine cream is applied onto the skin, to numb the area and render the treatment as comfortable and painless as possible.
How long does the treatment take?
The treatment takes about 30 minutes.
Prior to the treatment you will have to schedule a consultation with the Doctor to be assessed for suitability, to discuss goals and to choose the best treatment option for you.
During this consultation you’ll be made aware of treatment’s benefits and side effects and you will have to sign a consent form.
After the treatment you will be invited for a follow up appointment in 2 weeks, to assess results.
How long do the results last for?
Results usually last for 12- 15 months, depending on life style.
Are there any side effects?
Common side effects are:
- Pain or stinging at the injection site
- Swelling, redness, mild bleeding and bruising at the injection site
All these usually settle spontaneously within a few days after treatment.
What is the downtime and after care?
your lips can be swallen and bruised up to a week.
There are some recommendations to follow in order to maximize the effects of your treatment such as:
- Do not wear make up for at least 12 hours
- Do not consume alcohol or perform vigorous exercise for 14 days
- Avoid hot bath, saunas and steam rooms or other extreme sources of heat, including sunbathing for 14 days
- Avoid non-steroidal analgesia as they might worsen the bruising
