Whether you’re looking to enhance your lips, restore lost lip volume, or achieve a rejuvenated appearance, lip fillers offer a versatile solution that can help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Lip filler is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that involves the injection of a specialized hyaluronic acid gel-like substance into specific areas of the lips. The process is customizable, allowing for both subtle enhancements or more dramatic transformations, depending on your preference.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that naturally occurs in the skin, joints and eyes and functions to attract and retain moisture.
Some of the many benefits of lip filler include:
Lip filler is a simple and effective way to add volume to thinning or naturally small lips. The careful injection of filler results in lips that appear fuller and more youthful while still appearing very natural.
Lip filler can enhance the contours and definition of lips to create a more attractive, balanced and harmonious appearance. This is particularly beneficial for individuals with asymmetrical or uneven lips.
Dehydrated lips are quickly rejuvenated by the moisture attracted and retained by lip filler. This results in softer, hydrated lip tissue and the reduction of lip lines to contribute to an overall rejuvenated look.
When lip filler is done correctly by a skilled and experienced injector, the results appear natural, something that is very important to us at Halcyon Cosmetic & Skin Clinic. Your lips should blend seamlessly with your facial features, without an overdone or artificial look.
We also believe in a gradual approach to lip augmentation. This ensures that you have time to adapt to the changes and provides us with the opportunity to fine-tune your results for a perfect, natural look.

Lip fillers are cosmetic injections typically made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and helps retain moisture and plumpness. Lip filler is used to enhance the volume, shape, and structure of the lips.
The cost of lip filler varies based on factors like the type of filler, the amount required, the practitioner’s expertise, and the region. Prices typically range from a few hundred to several hundred dollars per syringe.
The number of syringes required depends on your desired results, your natural lip shape, and the recommendations of our experienced injector. Some individuals may achieve their desired look with just one syringe, while others might need more.

As with any type of injection, there is mild discomfort or a pinching sensation, but this is managed with both topical anaesthetic, as well as anaesthetic within the lip filler itself.
Like any medical procedure, lip filler has potential risks. Common side effects include temporary swelling, bruising, and redness. In rare cases, there might be more serious complications such as infection or uneven results. Choosing a trained and experienced injector can help minimize these risks.
Recovery is usually minimal and you can resume most activities right after lip filler. Although you might experience some swelling, bruising, or redness, these effects generally subside within a few days, although on occasion bruising may be visible as long as 7-10 days.

You will see an immediate improvement after lip filler, but the look may be slightly distorted by swelling or bruising at first. After approximately 2 weeks, transient wide effects will have passed and they hyaluronic acid in the filler will have attracted moisture to the area to further soften and enhance your results.
The duration of lip fillers varies based on the type of filler used and your own metabolism. Generally, hyaluronic acid-based fillers last around 6 to 12 months but in some cases they can last much longer.
Yes, hyaluronic acid fillers can be dissolved using an enzyme called hyaluronidase. This can reverse the effects of the filler if you’re not satisfied with the outcome. At Halcyon Cosmetic & Skin Clinic we are very happy to see you if you’ve had filler done elsewhere and require dissolving and/or correction.
