Guide To Lip Fillers Singapore

What are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers are a popular, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment where hyaluronic acid-based fillers are injected into the lips to achieve your ideal lip appearance.

Benefits of Lip Fillers

  1. Lip fillers help to volumize thin lips, giving thicker, fuller, and more “sexy” lips.
  2. Increased lip definition by injection fillers along the lip borders (vermillion border)
  3. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers help to retain moisture, brighten and hydrate dry lips.
  4. Fillers can also help to stimulate collagen, thereby reducing the appearance of lip wrinkles and lines, giving you younger looking lips.
  5. For those with unbalanced or uneven lips, lip fillers can help to correct of lip asymmetry by restoring the desired “golden ratio” of upper lip to lower lip proportion.
  6. Enhancement of specific portions of the lips such as the cupid bow or philtrum.  

Lip Filler Trend - Russian Lips

Russian lips are achieved by injecting fillers along the vermilion border to accentuate the lips as well as injecting fillers in columns to increase the height of the lips.

Lip Filler Trend - Korean Cherry Lips

Popularised by Korean celebrities, cherry lips are created by injected fillers into the middle lip tubercles of the upper and lower lip.

How much Lip Filler is needed?

Most people would typically require 1 syringe (1ml) of lip filler to enhance both the upper and lower lip.

Dr Edwin typically recommends against over filling as it may lead to the appearance of “duck lips”.

Which Lip Filler brand is used?

Dr Edwin prefers to use Restylane Kysse which is a filler specifically designed for the lips for a natural look and feel.

Treatment Experience

Numbing cream will be applied to both lips to minimize discomfort given that the lips are a sensitive area.

Dr Edwin will discuss with you about your ideal lip proportion and plan out the injection points together with you.

Common areas that are enhanced are the vermillion borders, cupid’s bow, philtrum as well as the body of the lips (tubercles) for fuller and more plump lips.

Are Lip Fillers painful?

Discomfort will be minimized with numbing cream. However, certain areas may still be sensitive. Dr Edwin will take every effort to keep the discomfort to minimal levels.

How long do Lip Fillers last for?

On average, lip fillers may last between 9 to 12 months.

What are the side effects of Lip Fillers?

Swelling and bruising may be observed for 5 to 7 days after treatment. Dr Edwin recommends applying the intensive recovery cream to reduce bruising and speed up recovery.

Serious side effects like vascular occlusion (when the filler blocks a blood vessel) are very rare. Choosing an injector with experience in dermal fillers and facial anatomy will reduce such risks.

How do I find the Best Lip Filler Clinic in Singapore?

Every clinic offers different Lip Filler treatment options. No one clinic is same as the other. If you want to make sure that the Lip Filler treatments are performed safely and effectively, make sure that the clinic is experienced in Lip Filler injections. The clinic should also offer information on the various types of Laugh Lip treatments before proceeding.
