What are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are dermal fillers specially designed to add shape, structure and volume to the lips. These fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a component that our body itself creates and already naturally exists in all parts of our body, but which slowly degrades over time as we age.
How can Lip Fillers enhance my appearance?
Lip fillers can be used in a variety of ways, and depending on the amount injected, a lip filler treatment could be considered if you want to create fuller yet natural looking lips, enhance the shape and symmetry and overall help to restore a more youthful, rejuvenated look.
What to expect before, during and after your Lip Filler treatment.
Before your Lip Filler treatment
During the initial consultation we will discuss the options and create a bespoke treatment plan, going over the benefits and possible side effects. We’ll take a few ‘before’ photos for you to compare the lip filler before and after results once the treatment has finished.
During Lip Filler treatment
During the treatment itself we will apply a local anaesthetic lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment before we proceed to inject the lip fillers. For the lips, we use Restylane, a non-permanent filler containing Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and additional vitamins and amino acids to restore lost volume and to rejuvenate the skin. HA is a natural component and something that our body makes daily. It is found throughout our body; in our skin, bones, joints and eyes. It acts as a lubricant and moisturiser due to its ability to attract and store water. Unfortunately, as we age, we are not able to produce as much HA as we did in our youth.
After your Lip Filler treatment
After the treatment, the positive effects of the treatment should be visible immediately, especially when compared to the ‘before’ photos. The effects of this treatment will typically last around 6 months. Most people can return to their normal daily life immediately after the treatment. Try to avoid touching your mouth and keep the area clean. Also, try to sleep on your back facing up. You might experience slight side effect inconveniences in the treated area, such as swelling, mild bruising, itching or redness. These side effects typically only last between 1 and 3 days.
