Enhance the natural beauty of your lips. We use the Juvéderm range of lip fillers which are made of hyaluronic acid gel (natural substance already found in the body). This gel helps to give volume and restore shape to the lips. We use a topical numbing cream on the lips prior to injecting and the product itself also contains lidocaine. The procedure takes about 45 minutes and the results are visible straight away.
Lips are a main feature of the face and during the consultation process we will discuss with you what can be achieved. Our range of filler can help with adding volume, creating definition, balancing out asymmetrical lips and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
6 -12 months. However this depends on the product used and is variable between each individual. The treatment provides long lasting results but is not permanent.
Following treatment you will be the result straight away, this however will continue to improve over he next two weeks as the product retains water to rejuvenate and add volume. My aim is for natural, subtle results, rather than exaggerated or fake looks. However if you desire a slightly fuller look this should be made known during your consultation.
A full list of side effects will be discussed with you at your consultation
Lip Filler Aftercare
The effect of your treatment is immediate. Filler can be slightly mobile for a few hours following the procedure so it is important that you keep facial movements minimal and do not rub or massage the area for the rest of the day.
Immediately after treatment it is quite normal for there to be slight redness, swelling and tenderness around the treated area. These signs will gradually disappear in a few days. Wash and dry your face with gentle patting movements.
It is possible that you may be able to feel or see where the product has been placed for about two weeks following treatment. As the filler gradually incorporates into the matrix of your skin, these signs will lesson. If you have had stronger, more uplifting filler, it is possible that the filler will be palpable for longer.
Please avoid makeup for the rest of the day to prevent the introduction of infection to the injection sites.
Do not have facial beauty treatments or massage for two weeks following treatment and avoid exposure to strong sunlight, very cold temperatures, saunas and solariums for the same length of time.
If there is discomfort following treatment you may take paracetamol. Avoid the use of aspirin, ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory drugs as these may increase the risk of bruising.
Lip treatment generally takes a little longer to settle and may feel tender and appear uneven- this will gradually resolve itself within the first week and should not affect the final result.
There is a chance of bruising with filler treatments, caused both through the injection and sometimes through the pressure of the product on capillaries under the skin. Bruising may be apparent at the time of treatment or may develop later and may be anything from mild to moderate or occasionally heavy. This is an unfortunate side effect of filler treatments. Bruising will subside in time and the use of arnica cream can sometimes be helpful. Cool compresses for two days following treatment can help. After two days, warm compresses will encourage blood supply to remove traces of the bruise.
Although your treatment result is immediate the overall result will look much better in about two weeks when any trauma has subsided and the plumping effect of the product has really started to take effect.
