Lip Fillers in Toronto

Full, plump lips are considered an attractive facial feature to many. Lip fillers offer a cosmetic solution if your lips are thin or have lost volume due to aging. They can enhance lip shape and size using injectable dermal fillers. Plus, it is a non-surgical option and has minimal to no downtime.

Read on to learn all about this procedure and why DLK on Avenue is a top provider of lip fillers in Toronto.

Whare are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers are a quick cosmetic treatment to add volume and fullness to the lips. A doctor injects dermal filler, a gel-like substance, into the lips and around the mouth. The most common lip fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps retain moisture and adds volume to the skin.

The injections are done using a very fine needle, and the amount of filler used can be controlled to achieve the desired result. The procedure is relatively painless, and many patients only report slight discomfort during the injections.

Most results last 6-12 months but can sometimes last up to three years. Touch-up treatments can be done to maintain or enhance the results.

  • Deflated lips
  • Thin or asymmetrical lips
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Lack of definition in the lip border
  • Droopy corners of the mouth
  • Overall dissatisfaction with lip shape or size
  • Fine lines and wrinkles with Botox

Feel free to schedule an in-depth consultation to discuss your candidacy.

How to Prepare for a Lip Filler

There are a few guidelines to respect before your lip filler procedure. These will be explained in more detail during your consultation, but here's a brief overview.

  • Arrive at your appointment relaxed with a calm state of mind. 
  • Avoid blood-thinning medications like aspirin for optimal results and safety. 
  • We also recommend avoiding alcohol and smoking before treatment.
  • Do not apply makeup or lip products on the day of your appointment. 
  • Consider Arnica Montana supplements to alleviate bruising, but consult with us first.

What Does a Lip Filler Session at DLK Look Like?

Our clinic offers a relaxing, professional environment for your treatment. We cleanse the skin and apply numbing medication to maximize comfort. The nurse injects small amounts of filler into specific areas of the lips and mouth using a fine needle. We may massage the lips to ensure even distribution. 

Expect mild swelling for a few days post-treatment as the filler integrates into the tissues. Finally, schedule follow-ups to review results and determine if additional syringes are desired for your goals.

Expected Results

Lip fillers can increase lip size, shape, and definition when skillfully injected. Achievable outcomes include subtly more volume, balance, and symmetry. Note that results vary based on factors like anatomy, age, and skin condition. 

Lip fillers do not stop the aging process or modify genes. Talk to our team for realistic results tailored to your features and injection plan.

Lip Filler Aftercare & Recovery

Typical side effects after lip injections include temporary soreness, swelling, bruises, bumps, or redness. Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours post-treatment. To prevent tampering, avoid touching, scratching, or rubbing your lips. We recommend arnica and ice to accelerate healing. 

It is also best to avoid extreme heat or cold exposure. Results should stabilize around 2-4 weeks post-injections. Proper aftercare ensures optimal results and safety.

Risks and Side Effects of Lip Fillers

As with any procedure, lip filler risks include bleeding, infection, and allergic reactions. Creating overly plump lips risks an unnatural duck lip look. Lip necrosis can occur from compromised blood flow due to injection errors in extremely rare cases. 

The procedure may trigger an outbreak if you are prone to cold sores. Share your medical history and allergies with our team beforehand for appropriate precautions. 

Our expert technique minimizes risks like asymmetry, late swelling, or filler movement. Schedule an appointment to discuss your complete medical history and any personal risk factors.

How Much Does a Lip Filler Cost?

Pricing for dermal fillers in Toronto averages $600 per syringe. Most clients require 1-2 syringes for subtle lip enhancements. However, exact costs vary case-by-case based on factors like the types/volumes of filler used, complexity, and number of sessions required.

Lip Filler FAQs

How Old Do You Have to Be to Get a Lip Filler in Toronto?

Patients generally should be at least 18 years old for lip filler. However, some FDA-approved fillers may impose an older age limit (21 years) for cosmetic use. For example, safety guidelines for Juvederm ® state that it's not for use in people under 22 years.

How Long Does It Take to Recover from a Lip Filler?

Recovery takes 24-48 hours until major swelling and visible side effects subside. After that, minor swelling, bruising, and redness may take up to two weeks to completely disappear.

How Long Do Results from Lip Fillers Last?

On average, lip filler results last 6-12 months. Everyone metabolizes filler uniquely, so longevity varies per patient. Maintain results with good skincare and additional touch-up injections as needed. Annual visits help sustain your lip goals.

Are Lip Fillers Painful?

Lip injections use very fine needles for comfort. We combine topical numbing creams with injected lidocaine to maximize pain relief. Most patients describe injections as mildly painful, similar to pinching or a blood draw. Experienced, gentle technique makes the treatment comfortable.
