The Blog Do Lip Injections Hurt?

It is undeniable that lip injections are a growing trend in recent years. The promise of fuller lips and the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth area is a dream for many women of all ages. If you’re thinking of getting lip injections, you’re probably wondering about how painful the procedure is and what kinds of treatments are available to ease that pain. From anaesthetic creams to inhaled gas, there are multiple options to minimise pain – so if this is what is worrying you, speak to your doctor about the best prevention technique.

The Recipe to a Successful Procedure

Book a consultation

When deciding whether to go ahead with lip injections, speak with a trusted cosmetic injector. Openly explain your reservations, what look you want to achieve and ask about the type of filler that is available and about any aftercare procedures. Having an understanding of the process and of what to expect can put your mind at ease and help you to make your mind up if you are still undecided.

Be prepared

Although the procedure takes around 15 minutes on average, the lips can remain tender for a few days afterwards and, depending on the technique used, bruising and swelling can occur. Whilst you can return to your daily activities almost immediately, be prepared to adhere to your aftercare instructions. Recommended care includes taking time to apply ice, staying hydrated and avoiding high temperatures such as direct sunlight, saunas and exercising for 24 hours post procedure.

Choose a clinic that uses premium products

In Australia, dermal fillers are assessed by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). In simple terms, this assessment shows that the ‘TGA have reviewed the medicine’s indications (conditions the medicine says it will treat) and found they are supported by scientific evidence, meeting acceptable levels of quality, efficiency and safety. Choosing a clinic that uses TGA approved products is a good indicator that the products used will not harm your lips.

Choosing the Best Cosmetic Injector

With a trusted cosmetic clinic such as Contour Clinics, we pride ourselves on being cosmetic injectable experts.

The absolute best in Sydney. I would not go anywhere else to get anything done. Everyone I have encountered at this clinic has been so extremely warm and professional and put in so much time and effort to truly achieve your desired outcome. Can’t recommend this place enough, do not waste your money elsewhere.
