Apart from striking eyes, luscious, well-defined, full lips are one of the enduring symbols of beauty. We help you achieve this with lip fillers.
People may have genetically thin lips or may have acquired them through ageing, smoking and weight loss.
Lip fillers can help restore volume in the lips while also reducing wrinkles and fine lines around the lips. This can often be combined with anti-wrinkle injections to smooth lines and wrinkles.
At Rewind Skin & Laser Centre, our focus is on natural results and refreshing your look, not making you look “done or fake” and the advanced techniques used by our doctor injectors allow us to deliver that
Why do lips lose volume as we age
It is an unfortunate effect for all of us as we age that we lose volume in most areas of our faces as we age, and things start to sag and look older. In regard to lips, the muscles and soft tissue in the lips shrink as we age, hence making them look thinner.
We also get a loss of definition of the lip border, especially around the cupids bow area. As we age our skin also thins, adding to the loss of volume, whichis exacerbated by the effects of smoking and sun damage.
Why are lip fillers so popular
Almost 100% of the lip fillers that we perform are on women. For women, lips and eyes are the facial features that stand out the most and either add to or detract from their beauty.
Well balanced, symmetrical, plump lips are considered a sign of youth and beauty, hence the reason they are so popular, both among the general population and TV or movie stars and music artists.
Can there be lip filler side effects
The most common side effects to lip filler injections are bleeding and bruising. These are possible even with the most experienced injector.
Other more unusual side effects can be formation of lumps or granulomas in the lips. Rare side effects include infection and blockage of the small blood vessels, resulting in tissue damage.
Due to the risk of these side effects, it is important that your injector is an experienced medical professional, capable of dealing with side effects should they arise.
At Rewind Skin & Laser, all injections are done by doctors, therefore maximising your safety and ensuring you have the best aftercare should complications arise.

Prior to your lip filler procedure
“You should be well and healthy and have a full medical history taken. Blood thinning medications and anti-inflammatory products should be avoided. Smokers should cut down or quit at least one week before hand.
The area to be treated should be clean and dry with no make-up on. You should request a consent form to be emailed as it is beneficial to read and fully understand this before attending.”
On the day of your lip filler procedure
When you arrive your doctor will discuss the procedure with you and get you to sign a consent form. Numbing cream will be applied to the area to be treated. Small areas can be treated in 15-30 minutes. More extensive areas can take up to 60 minutes.
After your lip filler procedure
It is wise to ice the area for 30 minutes after the procedure and 30 minutes before going to bed, plus in the morning. An extra pillow or sleeping upright is wise to reduce swelling.
You should avoid alcohol and intense exercise for several days afterwards to reduce the risk of bruising and swelling.
An aftercare sheet is given to all patients and should be closely followed. Only a small percentage of people will need a top up or a slight readjustment.
