Why choose Fotona LipLase

People may be unhappy with the appearance of their lips for a number of reasons. Some naturally have a smaller lip size, while others have lost volume with age. If you are dreaming of fuller, plumper lips but want to avoid cosmetic injectables, Fotona LipLase offers an innovative alternative.

Fotona LipLase is a non-surgical, non-invasive laser treatment that stimulates collagen production in the lips to create fuller, smoother, more defined lips. Treatments target the lip tissue and the surrounding areas of the mouth to plump the lips from the inside out.

Ideal candidates for Fotona LipLase

Fotona LipLase treatments are ideal for patients with ageing or thin lips who are looking for an alternative treatment to injectables. The best way to determine whether Fotona LipLase will be a suitable treatment for you is to have a consultation at our clinic.

Fotona LipLase treatments use thermally induced laser energy to heat the lip area gently. This has two key lip plumping benefits.

Firstly, this works to tighten and firm the skin surrounding the lips, which creates a fuller appearance in the lips themselves. More importantly, such laser energy stimulates the production of collagen in the lips, which, in time, gives the lips a fuller, smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. Treatments work by targeting the corner of the mouth, border of the lips, grooves between the nose and upper lip AND the inner lips to stimulate collagen from all directions to ensure optimal results.

Prior to your treatment, we recommend having a consultation at Medical Aesthetics to discuss your skin concerns and procedure expectations, after which we can create a treatment plan.

Fotona LipLase treatments take between 15 and 20 minutes to complete. As the laser targets your lips, you may experience a gentle pinch or a warming sensation, however, this will dissipate once the treatment ends. Overall, treatments are relatively painless, and, as such, no anaesthetic is required. After your Fotona LipLase treatment, you are immediately free to resume your regular activities.

To achieve the best results, we usually recommend three to four treatments, spaced one month apart. To maintain this, we suggest follow-up treatments every three months.

While results will vary from patient to patient, many do not notice results immediately. Collagen takes time to rebuild, meaning that you will gradually see results over a three to four-month period. The positive to this is that results will appear natural, meaning that nobody will know you’ve had anything done! Keep in mind that your lips will eventually continue to age once more, meaning that you may require maintenance treatments to keep up your results.

There is absolutely no downtime required after a Fotona LipLase treatment, meaning that you are free to resume your daily activities immediately. However, you may experience some slight swelling or peeling of the lips: this is normal and should resolve within a day or two. Following your Fotona LipLase treatment, diligent sun care is a must, so we suggest applying an SPF 50+ to the treated area daily.
