Do Lips Age?
Just like other parts of your face your lips age. The lip cushions become less full, the Cupid’s bow becomes flatter, the lip border becomes less defined and the corners of the mouth start to droop downwards. Women of all ages want their lips enhanced. Younger women often opt for a fuller lip look whilst older women seek a subtle look. Men too will request subtle lip augmentation.
What Does Lip Treatment With Dermal Filler Involve?
Dr. Jodie will assess your natural lip and carefully tailor your treatment to suit your face. A combination of local anaesthetic, numbing cream or ice will be used to ensure you are comfortable. Dr. Jodie uses a micro-cannula (fine blunt-ended instrument) to administer the Dermal Filler, which tends to reduce bruising and swelling, but fine-tunes with a small needle to achieve your best result. Ultimately, Dr. Jodie will use the best combination of injectable techniques to achieve the right shape for your lips.
Following your Lip Filler treatment, you may experience some swelling and possibly some bruising, although many of Dr. Jodie’s clients leave with little evidence of treatment. Even so, it is best to time your treatment well with your social calendar.
What Factors Affect How My Lips Will Be Styled?
Your natural lip shape and structure influence both the degree of fullness and shape that can be achieved. Lips that are already pouty are usually amenable to more voluminous lip treatments whereas thin lips may not be. Thin lips tend to require repeated small volume Dermal Filler treatments over time.
Age is another consideration; full perky lips will look out of place on a mature woman (as they may on some younger women). More often than not, mature women require rejuvenation of the area around the lips as well for a more natural result.
Ethnicity may also guide your Lip Filler treatment. Patients with Asian heritage best suit an upper and lower lip that are similar in size. Whereas those with Caucasian heritage best suit an upper lip that is smaller than the lower lip.
Gender too will influence the approach to your Lip Filler treatment. Male lips tend to be smaller and straighter in appearance with less definition, while female lips are fuller and more curvaceous with greater definition. It is important not to overdo a male lip (or any lip for that matter) as this can be feminising.
Facial balance and harmony are key; Dr. Jodie will guide you to your best result.
Natural Looking Lip Fillers For Melbourne Residents
Lip Filler treatment can add volume and shape to your lips, but it takes an artistic eye and light-handed work to deliver a natural result. While plump, full lips suit some faces they won’t suit everyone. Dr. Jodie is aware of this and will carefully consider your individual requirements. Natural looking Lip Filler treatment with Dr. Jodie takes into account the volume and natural shape of your unique lips. Dr. Jodie can enhance your lip size, shape, border and projection without creating a fake look, so that no one else will know you have been treated. Lip Filler treatment can also help you achieve a fuller and more rounded lip shape, but Dr. Jodie will first ensure this will suit your face and balance well with your other features. In conjunction with Lip Filler treatment, Dr. Jodie can also improve your Smile Lines, the lines that appear around your lips.
Tailored And Subtle Lip Filler Treatments In Melbourne
Dr. Jodie takes the time to personalise your Lip Filler treatment to enhance what you’ve already got.

Dr. Jodie does not take a ‘one size fits all’ or ‘cookie cutter’ approach to Lip Filler treatment. She tailors every treatment to suit your lips, other features and face shape. Your lips must be in balance with the rest of your face or the result will distract from your natural beauty rather than enhance it. Dr. Jodie understands the nuances of achieving a natural looking Lip Filler outcome, tailored to your exact needs.

With minimal down time, you can leave her clinic after your Lip Filler treatment and get back into your day.
