Do you wish for plumper and fuller lips, but are too afraid of needles? Fotona’s needleless LipLase™ therapy could be what you’re looking for.
Fuller lips have long been associated with youth and attractiveness. The ‘ideal lip’ should have the following characteristics: fullness and volume, correct balance between the upper and lower lips, and a well-defined vermilion border. However, many are unaware that lip size is usually affected by genetics and loss of collagen from ageing. Fortunately, there are solutions that help us achieve plumper and fuller lips naturally, such as LipLase™. While Veritas offers a variety of lip fillers, a number of patients with needle-phobia opts for LipLase™ to achieve similar results for lip volumisation.
LipLase™ is a non-surgical and non-invasive lip treatment that utilises laser energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production for inner lips, outer lip, and surrounding skin. It also enhances the cupid’s bow, giving your lips a well-rounded, defined lip shape. Unlike existing lip augmentation treatments that require puncturing the skin, LipLase does not involve any needles at all.
Enjoy fuller and defined lips with:
- No fillers
- No bruising
- No injections
- Minimal downtime
- Minimal discomfort
What Can It Be Used For?

How Does It Work?
Fotona LipLase therapy utilises Fotona’s Erbium:YAG laser to stimulate new collagen production in the lips. Through carefully customised passes, optical energy is transmitted in single sub-second long pulse sequences to avoid heat. In 6-7 pulses, surface tissue in the lips triggers new collagen production, resulting in plumper and fuller lips. Patients who wish to have deeper collagen stimulation can benefit from the laser’s PIANO mode, where treatment is done intra-orally on the mucosal lining of the lips. This reaches deeper skin tissues and is painless.
Lip plumping by LipLase™ happens in three stages:
- Stage 1: Some edema will appear immediately after treatment and will last for about a week. Instant volumisation.
- Stage 2: There might be some surface peeling, but this is normal and will last for 48 hours post-treatment at most. Patients will be given the necessary moisturising oils to prevent a high amount of peeling.
- Stage 3: Neo-collagenesis happens, which is the development of new collagen.
The whole treatment is fast and comfortable, taking about 20 minutes. While patients can see a significant improvement immediately after leaving the room, the results will continue to improve after the prescribed number of sessions.
What Is The Fotona Liplase Difference?
Without the need for injecting any foreign substances in the lips, Fotona LipLase utilises laser technology to encourage and boost natural collagen production.
LipLase™ has the following benefits:
- Gives hydrated and plumper lips
- Natural looking results
- Stimulates collagen production
- Defines the cupid’s bow
- Smoothes wrinkles around the lips and mouth from ageing
- Lightens lip colour to a pinker tone
- No needles, downtime or bruising
- Long lasting results
- Comfortable treatment with no downtime, needles or bruising
Unlike lip fillers, Fotona LipLase is a non-intrusive procedure that does not require the use of needles. Think of it as an alternative to injectables. Lip fillers also involve injecting a solution (usually hyaluronic acid) into your lips. While results are instantaneous, the filler will break down over time and is metabolised by the body.
In comparison, Fotona LipLase plumps lips naturally by encouraging the body to stimulate collagen production. Results also occur more gradually over a course of 4-6 months and patients will notice their lips appearing softer and plumper.
As LipLase treatment promotes natural collagen production, it is therefore dependent on your body’s ability to produce collagen. Results may differ across individuals. However, patients usually can see a difference after the first session; for optimal results, at least 3 sessions spaced 2 weeks apart and another 3 sessions spaced one month apart are recommended. Results last up to 12 months.
Fotona LipLase is a safe procedure with minimal to no side effects. The treatment is virtually painless with no anaesthesia or numbing agents required. At most, you may feel some warmth all over your lips due to the laser energy, but it will be gone after the treatment.
No, LipLase does not have any side effects that could trigger loss of sensation in your lips.
There is no downtime and patients are able to resume their daily activities immediately after. Immediately after, the lips will appear swollen but this should subside within a few fours. There will be some superficial peeling on the 2nd day. As part of the aftercare, patients are advised to use SPF 50 lip balm and avoid wearing lipstick for the next 24 hours.
