They say that your eyes reflect your soul, but it’s your lips that reveal what’s on your mind. Whether happy or sad, peaceful or contemplative, there’s no facial feature as expressive as your lips. Full, plump lips are considered feminine and sexy. The ‘ideal’ lips, according to a survey of Australian women are full, natural-looking and well-defined, with a strong Cupid’s bow (the v-shaped area of the upper lip).
Everyone’s lip shape is slightly different. Our lip shape and volume is delivered by the presence of substances such as complex sugars and elastin, naturally occurring in the skin. It is possible to enhance what you’ve already got using lip filler injections. Discuss the possibilities of lip enhancement with your cosmetic injector today
What are lip fillers?
Lip fillers are made from complex sugar chains also known as Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and are combined with a unique stabilisation process, which gives these products structure and longevity. HA is found in the body where its main role is to attract water and provide hydration to the skin. The products are designed to resemble your body’s own natural HA and ca help revitalise your lips with a treatment that can:
- Restore fullness to the lips
- Correct asymmetries and restore balance to the lips
- Soften lines and wrinkles around the lips
- Add shape and volume to naturally think-shaped lips

Before & After Pictures - Lip Injections/Fillers
How do fillers for the lips work?
Lip fillers are injected into the lips to subtly enhance volume, softness and smoothness as well as restore symmetry and to fill out lines and wrinkles in the skin surrounding the lips.
After a consultation with your Cosmetic Practitioner, the most suitable lip filler will be selected for you. At Eden Laser Clinics, we offer free consultations.s
How long does a treatment in the lips last for?
The effects of lip fillers are long lasting but not permanent. The longevity of these products is dependent on a few factors. There are several different formulations of HA fillers which are designed specifically for different areas on the face. These fillers vary in thickness, and typically we use the thinnest formulation to maintain a natural look. The longevity of lip fillers is also dependant on the metabolism of the person who has received the lip treatment. People with faster metabolisms will break down the product, however, on average we see the product lasting around 6-9 months.
After your initial treatment, follow up sessions are usually recommended to maintain results.
What are lip filler side effects?
Lip fillers have been well researched for almost 20 years and millions of treatments have been performed globally. Serious side effects are not common.
The most common post-treatment reaction is slight redness, swelling, itching, bruising or slight pain and tenderness. These reactions usually disappear shortly after each injection. If these become troublesome or persistent, contact your cosmetic practitioner.
What types of fillers do you use at Eden Laser Clinics Sydney?
At Eden Laser Clinics we use two different brands of fillers. Each brand has several formulations in their ranges and our cosmetic practitioners will choose the one that best suits each individual patient.
Who carries out the lip filler procedure?
All cosmetic injectable procedures are carried out by trained Cosmetic Physicians or trained Cosmetic Nurse Specialists.
What are the costs of lip fillers?
The starting price for a lip treatment at Eden Laser Clinics is currently $379. However this price may vary depending on how much product your lips need and how long you want the treatment to last.
