Also known as lip enhancement or lip augmentation, lip filler treatment can help you have fuller lips, restore the volume to lips that may have lost the definition they used to have when you were younger, or simply enhance the shape of your lips. This can give your smile more definition, make the most of your ‘cupid’s bow’ and give you more confidence if you feel your lips are too thin.
It is a non-surgical procedure, which is growing in popularity, with the term ‘lip fillers’ being the most googled beauty items in the google search engine. It is a popular treatment with people of all ages and if carried out by professionals, such as ourselves, is a safe procedure.
We’ve all heard horror stories of ‘lips gone wrong’ giving a ‘trout pout’, but a lot of these horror stories were when lip fillers were made from silicone, which is no longer the case here in the UK.
What is a lip filler?
We use an injectable dermal filler, which typically lasts for around six months. The product we use contains substances similar to hyaluronic acid…this type of filler improves the look of your lips by adding shape, structure and volume.
The benefits of using this type of filler is that hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your body, so there is less of a chance of you having an allergic reaction. However, with any substance, there is a small chance – you MUST let us know if you are allergic to lidocaine, which is also an ingredient in the filler.
Using the product we use, gives us control over the amount of substance that we inject, so we have full control of how much lip volume is created and will check with you throughout the treatment. There will be some lumps and bumps after initial treatment, which are created by the movement of your lips when you speak, eat etc. but these can be massaged and dissolved easily. With the products we use, there may also be less bruising or swelling compared to other dermal fillers. Finally, although the results are fairly long lasting, they are not permanent.
Please feel free to get in touch and we can discuss your requirements. We always have a face-to-face consultation with you prior to treatment, so everything can be properly assessed and explained.
We reserve the right to refuse treatment, if we feel there would be any problems.
