Cosmetic surgeries and dermal fillers such as lip fillers, the removal of forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines are becoming increasingly common place among consumers. And with their popularity come a lot of questions! The purpose of this article is to shed a little light on lip fillers.
Where Can I Get My Lips Filled?
Where once upon a time, a lady or gent needed to visit an expensive cosmetic surgeon for this non-invasive procedure, we now have the ability to go no further than our local dentist
Local dentists are able to do a number of cosmetic surgeries that few realise they can do –and they go beyond lip filling or skin tightening; they can also offer auxiliary cosmetic options.
Other Common Cosmetic Injections Leading Dentists Offer
Of the cosmetic services offered by dentists that go over and above dermal injections, some of the most popular include the removal of a “gummy” smile, and relief for chronic jaw, muscle and headache aches and pains.
What Do I Need to Know about Lip Filler?
- How long lip filler lasts
Any form of anti-wrinkle dermal filling such as lip filler generally last about three to four months, with subsequent treatments lasting a bit longer at five to six months. The length of how long your treatments last is a result of how active your muscles are and how quickly your healing process is.
- Will this finally cure my “resting consternation face”?
While lip fillers in Brisbane might not, yes, dermal injections can cure this common ailment. What started out as a simple look of consternation has been elevated to pop culture terminology which is only the face we make when we’re not emoting and when our faces are relaxed. A dermal filler can alter slightly the appearance of our facial resting phase, making it seem less, well. You get the idea.
- What about side effects?
Side effects to lip fillers and other dermal injections are generally minimal, but they can happen. Some of the side effects to lip filling include a little redness and soreness around the affected area, some bruising, and a little bleeding which clears up within a couple days –and this is only in a small handful of cases.
- So I’ve decided to go forward, now what?
Traditionally, your dentist will walk you through a number of things at your first consultation which include taking part in a full facial assessment, the development of a complete and personalised treatment plan, and they will also educate you on every part of the process while answering any questions you may have. All you need to do is find out if your dentist provides these services.
- Is my dentist “allowed” to do these procedures?
The short answer; yes. Dentists such as those at Face Value Dental have been adding new kinds of training to their repertoire so they are able to offer their customers more services that go beyond dentistry. These additional certifications allow them to service all of your facial needs, not just your mouth.
Dermal fillers and cosmetic injectables are just the beginning of a wide range of services that forward-thinking dentists are now able to offer. Each of these treatments is done in the same sanitary (sterile) way that you’d always expect from your dentist, and are just as reliable.
