Are Lip Fillers Safe? 

At Aeternum Aesthetics, our main aim is to provide safe and effective treatments using premium branded dermal filler.

Lip and peri-oral rejuvenation is a popular treatment for those looking to achieve fuller lips and reduce signs of ageing.  We do this by directly treating upper and lower lip lines/wrinkles around the mouth area and treating the “pink” area of the lip known as lip tubercles to add volume and hydration.  Dermal filler treatment can also help correct asymmetry and lip shape irregularities, as well as providing a natural-looking enhancement, we don’t endorse overfilled lips.

While lip filler procedures are relatively safe and straightforward, there are potential risks and downtime (settling time after treatment) associated with lip filler treatment and it’s important to know these before deciding whether this is the right treatment for you.

Before your first lip filler treatment, we will have a consultation to assess your medical history and suitability for treatment. We will also talk about your desired outcome from the treatment.  It can be helpful for you to bring pictures with you of lip styles you like.  This is particularly helpful when you are wanting more volume in the lips.  The consultation helps us to ensure that the treatment is suitable for you and/or if there are any pre-treatment precautionary measures that need to be taken.  What do we mean by extra measures?  For example, if someone is prone to, or has a history of cold sores, we may advise/prescribe a short course of anti-viral medication to reduce the possibility of a flare up.

We advise clients to avoid alcohol and NSAIDS medications like Ibuprofen for 24 hours before and after having filler treatment.  We do this because both thin the blood and will increase the possibility of bruising.  If taking NSAIDS for a health condition, then we would not ask you stop them but to be mindful that your downtime may be longer. 

Bruising and swelling can still happen after having lip filler treatment, regardless of precautions taken.  Everyone’s response is different, and everyone’s lips are different! There are many factors which contribute, and we should remember that the lips are soft tissue.  The injection technique used by your practitioner, the amount of dermal filler being injected, and the number of injections required to achieve your desired outcome will all have an effect on the level of trauma caused to the lips potentially causing bruising and swelling. 

We adhere to strict guidelines and regulations at Aeternum Aesthetics. Our Aesthetic Injectors are all medically trained professionals, and our clinic is a CQC Regulated Medical setting based in Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire. This means that our clinical setting is not only safe and regulated but also that each of our practitioners are also accountable to their professional registration. 

Our highly experienced team of medical professionals also take all necessary precautions to ensure that every patient is given an appropriate dose of the lip filler product they want to use in their procedures. This means that our clinicians are trained in safe dosage administration practices and can determine accurately how much dermal filler material should be used on each patient.

We ensure that only the highest quality products are used for lip fillers, and our team of medical professionals take great care in monitoring their results to make sure they are consistently achieving the desired outcomes.
