Lip fillers in Singapore, also known as dermal fillers or lip injections, are non-surgical treatments designed to enhance lip volume, shape, symmetry, and even to reduce the appearance of lip wrinkles. Dermal fillers are a medical product that typically consist of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body.

Diamond-shaped lips are one of the most common lip shapes. They have distinct cupid bows and upper lip vermilion. For individuals with thin lips, you can opt for lip fillers to enhances the fullness of the lip vermilion, making both the left and right lip vermilions more defined, thereby achieving a transformation into diamond-shaped lips.

The defining characteristic of petal lips is the resemblance of the lower lip shape to two flower petals. Lip fillers can significantly enhance the fullness of the upper and lower lip vermillion, plump up the lips, and achieve that beautiful curvature at the bottom lip to achieve this coveted look.

Smile lips, characterised by a slight upturn at the corners, are inspired by Chinese actress Angelababy. The upper lips have a M shape, but what makes it different from heart-shaped lips or M lips are the upturned lip corners, giving us a friendly and approachable appearance.

Smile lips can be achieved through depressor anguli oris botulinum neuromodulators (commonly known as “Botox”) injections to relax the muscles pulling down the corners of the mouth to give patients a lift at the lip corners. The upper lip M shape can be created with lip fillers to enhance definition and fullness.

What to expect during a lip filler treatment?

The lip filler treatment will begin with a thorough consultation, where you’ll discuss your aesthetic goals and address any concerns with our doctor. Before the procedure, numbing cream will be applied to minimise any discomfort during the injections. The lip filler is then carefully administered, shaping and enhancing the lips. Your doctor may massage and sculpt the filler to achieve optimal symmetry. While lip filler treatments generally involve minimal downtime, it’s normal to experience temporary swelling or bruising which will resolve with time.
