Lip injections, also called lip augmentation or lip enhancement, is a popular cosmetic procedure that aims to increase volume in the lips. At Begone Skin & Body, we use only premium dermal lip fillers to create tailored, quality results.
Lip injections are a great way to augment certain facial areas, creating a softer and more rounded appearance. Many people seek to achieve full, plump lips, and as a result, the lips are a commonly targeted area for dermal filler procedures. The process involves injecting small amounts of dermal filler, made from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance in the body, found in the eyes and joints, that absorbs moisture. This means the human body is well accustomed to the substance and is unlikely to react adversely.
By injecting HA into the lips, patients can achieve more hydrated lips as well as a fuller lip appearance.
Lip filler treatments by cosmetic nurse injectors
Lips can lose volume over time due to the natural ageing process. Gravity and natural volume loss can make the lips appear thinner and contribute to facial ageing. Additionally, some people may have naturally thin lips that they wish to enhance. Dermal fillers for lips are a great way to restore volume, creating a more rounded and youthful appearance.
At Begone Skin & Body, our highly skilled cosmetic nurses will work with you to understand your needs and customise the treatment to your concerns. For example, while some patients may want to achieve a dramatic enhancement, others may only want a slight change or enhancement to a certain aspect of their lips. We will meet with you before treatment in order to discuss your goals and create a treatment plan that will deliver the results you want. Whether you wish to achieve a fuller, “pouty” look, or create a subtle lip enhancement, we can help you achieve your desired outcomes.

Benefits of lip injections
Lip injections are a great way to enhance your lip appearance in a way that suits your natural features. There are many common aesthetic concerns that may lead someone to seek lip fillers. For some people, this may be due to thinning lips as a result of natural ageing, heightened by factors such as smoking and sun damage. However, most people are able to see excellent benefits from lip injections. Our clinic nurses use high quality dermal filler and skilled injection techniques to address concerns such as:
- Naturally slender upper and/or lower lips
- Signs of ageing, such as vertical lines on the upper lip
- Undefined lip border
- Poor lip hydration
- Lip asymmetry, where the left and right sides do not match
- Poor lip ratio between the upper and lower lip
- Improve a thin or “disappearing” lip smile
- Create a soft, rounded appearance
Experience the benefits of lip fillers:
- High rate of patient satisfaction
- Widely tested procedure with a good safety rating
- Can be customised to the patient and their goals
- Can boost confidence and self-esteem
Fillers are temporary, and you can adjust your look if your goals change over time. The treatment is also reversible. This means that if, for whatever reason, you are unhappy with the result, we can dissolve the filler by injecting an enzyme.
Your consultation at Begone Skin & Body
At your consult, we will take great care to understand your reasons for seeking lip filler and what result you hope to attain. We will also need to establish whether you are suitable for treatment before going ahead. This means you should inform us of any medical conditions, medications, or past procedures. Ideal patients for the treatment generally:
- Are non-smokers
- Do not have health issues that could cause risks
- Are in good physical and mental health
- Are not pregnant or nursing
- Have realistic expectations
When we have identified you as a good candidate, we will design a treatment plan based on your needs, goals, and natural features.
A procedure for lip fillers generally takes about 30 minutes to complete. Your practitioner will apply or inject an anaesthetic in order to ensure you do not feel pain during treatment. After this, they will carefully inject the HA dermal lip fillers.
Your clinic nurse at Begone Skin & Body will use precise injection points in order to achieve a certain result. This will involve targeting specific areas, which will often include the cupid’s bow and lip border, to help achieve a natural look. The amount of filler injected will depend on whether you are seeking a subtle or more dramatic change. You may feel a slight pricking sensation, but the numbing should make the procedure comfortable. The results of dermal lip fillers will typically last between 6 to 12 months, and will gradually break down over time.
Lip fillers cost in Perth
The cost will depend on the exact nature of your treatment and what you are hoping to achieve. This is because your aesthetic goals and needs will dictate the amount of filler required, in turn impacting the cost. Due to the nature of lip injections, the more filler required, the higher the price. Therefore, before your procedure, we will discuss these factors with you and give you an idea of the costs involved so that you know what to expect.

It is common for the lips to be swollen after lip injections. As a result, your lips may appear larger than expected, but keep in mind that this is not the final result, and you will experience the actual results after the swelling subsides. To assist in the healing process, we may advise you to follow some aftercare instructions, including the use of a cold compress. It’s recommended you avoid putting too much pressure on your lips, as they will be more sensitive than usual. Other aftercare guidelines may include:
- Avoid exercise for the first 24 hours
- Eat a healthy diet, and stay hydrated
- Do not rub or massage your treated areas
- Contact us if you notice any adverse effects
- Do not smoke, as this impacts your ability to heal
- Avoid alcohol, as this can increase the risk of inflammation
Following this guidance will help your lips heal quicker and lessen your risk of healing issues.
Risks and complications
There are risks involved in any cosmetic injections procedure. Although adverse effects are rare, it is still important to do your research and know the risks before going ahead. Side effects such as swelling and bruising are common after lip injections. However, severe side effects of dermal lip fillers are less common. They can include:
- Unwanted results
- Prolonged bruising or swelling
- Prolonged pain or tenderness
Contact the clinic if you notice any severe or prolonged reactions, and we will advise you.
