Do you want beautiful luscious lips that suit your facial features and look natural? Do you want to reduce the appearance of thin lips that develop with age?
“Unfortunately, your mouth is one of the first places to show some of the most common signs of ageing. When the lips lose their volume, they become thinner and less defined too. Lip fillers can help patients of all ages achieve fuller lips, while also reducing the appearance of lines around the mouth.” Dr Anh

Lip enhancement means improving the natural shape of the lips
When it comes to lip fillers, less is more. Most patients want their lips to look as natural as possible, which means the final result cannot look too fake or disproportionate to existing facial features. This is why our doctor and nurses will always assess not only your lips but the rest of your face too, as not every face can pull off Angelina Jolie lips. In all cases, we can significantly improve the appearance of your lips, while ensuring they blend in with the rest of your facial features.
When looking at lip shape we will pay attention to the cupids bow area, the corners of the lips and any areas where natural volume already exists. We approach every lip filler treatment on an individual basis, so every patient’s final result will look different to the next, but beautiful in their own way.
LIP FILLERS HAVE THE ABILITY TO:
Create fuller and softer lips
Lip fillers can enhance the contours of the lips, or replace volume that has been lost due to ageing.
Improve your smile
Lip fillers can fill out lips that have thinned out or ‘disappear’ when someone smiles.
Smooth out age lines
Lip fillers can plump the lips, which will automatically smooth out the lines that accumulate around the mouth as we age.
Create more definition
Dermal filler can be used to accentuate the cupid’s bow, which will add more definition to your lips and mouth.

LIP FILLER BEFORE AND AFTERS
The mouth, where we showcase our joy, grief and even sensuality – it’s not immune to the signs of ageing
Ageing is synonymous with volume loss (deflation), sagging (ptosis or descent) and wrinkling. Unfortunately, our mouths and lips can also show signs of ageing. Some of this ageing is due to the natural ageing process, facial animation and genetics whilst in some individuals, this can be accelerated by environmental factors such as sun exposure and smoking.
With age, the upper lip lengthens, the lower lip loses volume, the tissue around the corners of our mouth deflate, the corners of our mouth turn down, lines and wrinkles form around our mouth, our chin pad sags (chin ptosis) and the nasolabial folds on each side of our mouth become more prominent.
Reclaiming a More Youthful Mouth
The lines around the mouth (perioral rhytids) can be addressed with laser resurfacing such as C02 laser or Fraxel laser. Alternatively, the lines can also be reduced using dermal fillers to soften those lines. If there are many strong dynamic lines around the mouth on animation, a small amount of wrinkle relaxants can also help improve the appearance of lines. Dermabrasion or chemical peels can also be used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. A combination of treatments can effectively improve the quality of the skin and soft tissues around the mouth.
The long upper lip can be addressed with a lip lift which is a surgical manoeuvre to lift and reshape the lift. The deep nasolabial crease and prominent nasolabial folds may require a midface lift or fillers.
Frequently Asked Questions
Everybody responds differently to treatment, just like some people are allergic to nuts and some people are not. Generally, we have found that fillers are safe for most people as many of them are made of a naturally occurring compound.
Unfortunately, according to the official medical guidelines for plastic surgeons, we cannot mention the brand names or technical products that are used as fillers at our Perth Medispa. We can tell you what we offer in person at your initial consultation with Dr Anh. You can rest assured that we have a broad range of premium branded fillers available.
No, we don’t offer any permanent filler options at our clinic. Dermal filler lasts at least six months though, so you would only need to schedule two appointments were year to maintain your results – this will be different for each patient though. You can discuss your expectations with Dr Anh.
While lip fillers are minimally uncomfortable, it is possible to apply a topical anaesthetic before your treatment commences. Once the lips have been prepped, a series of fine injections will be used to gradually add volume to the lips until your desired outcome is achieved. Since the filler takes less than 20 minutes to administer, you can easily schedule one of these sessions over your lunch break.
It’s important to stay hydrated and to avoid any medication or supplements that could thin your blood for at least a week prior to your treatment. If you are prone to cold sores, make sure that you also take the necessary medication in the days leading up to your appointment to prevent them from forming after your session.
The results of your treatment will be obvious directly after your treatment but since your lips will be slightly swollen, you will need to wait several hours to see the exact size of your lips. A cold compress can be used to reduce swelling. In most instances, lip filler can last up to six months but this is dependent on how quickly your body metabolises it. If for any reason you are unhappy with the results of your treatment, a dissolving enzyme can be used to reduce the effects of the filler.
It’s important not to massage your lips for at least two days after your treatment and to touch them as little as possible. Strenuous exercise and extreme temperatures should also be avoided to prevent the filler from migrating. To ensure your lips heal as quickly as possible, rather avoid smoking for several days – this will also help prevent infections. Once the filler has settled, protect your lips by wearing a lip balm that contains vitamin E and sunscreen.
This is mainly dependent on the type of filler that you want to use and how much volume you want to add to your lips. The best way to find out how much you can expect to pay is to schedule a consultation with Dr Anh. During this time, your facial features, as well as your expectations, can be discussed in order to come up with a treatment plan that suits your budget.
