LipLase™ is a non-invasive procedure which enhances the appearance of the lips. This method is appealing as it involves no incisions or injections. This is a day procedure, and you will be able to return to your usual daily routine immediately with little downtime involved.
LipLase™ uses heat pulses on and around the lips. This works to stimulate collagen production, which results in the lips becoming fuller and plumper over time.
There are many benefits to undergoing laser lip enhancement. These include:
You will be a suitable candidate if you wish to increase the appearance of your lips and do not wish to use fillers or undergo a surgical procedure such as a lip lift.
You will need to be at least 18 years old to undergo this procedure.
You will need to have realistic expectations about what the procedure can achieve.
Prior to undergoing this procedure, you will need to have a consultation with one of the surgeons, who will be able to tell you if you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.
LipLase™ is a quick, non-invasive procedure. It will take around 20 minutes to complete.
You do not require any anaesthetic. However, if elected, a topical anaesthetic cream can be applied to the area prior to treatment.
The laser energy then targets the deep tissue in the skin. This treatment stimulates the collagen production, which causes the lips to increase in volume.
To achieve the best results, you will generally need three to four treatments.
This is a non-surgical procedure, so there is no recovery involved. You may feel heat for 30 minutes following the procedure.
You will notice your lips will peel; this will last for around two days following treatment.
You will be encouraged to keep your lips moist following treatment.
You will notice results improve slowly over time as the collagen continues to be produced. Results will continue to improve over four to six months.
Centre for Surgery uses Fotona’s LipLase™ for laser lip enhancement.
This uses laser energy to target deep tissue. This stimulates collagen production, which increases the volume of the lips.
Unlike other options for increasing the volume of the lips, LipLase™ lip enhancement does not involve the use of any foreign objects, there is no needles involved and no incisions. You will experience little to no downtime, with no bruising or swelling. You will be able to resume your usual daily routine immediately.
You will not require any anaesthetic before undergoing treatment. However, some people may elect to have a topical anaesthetic cream applied to the area.
The procedure is not considered painful, with patients describing it as feeling like hot water droplets. You may feel heat for 30 minutes following the procedure.
It will take around 20 minutes to complete.
Most people will require three to four treatments to achieve the best results.
Unlike other options, you will not see results immediately. The laser stimulates collagen production, so you will see gradually improved results over three to four months.
