Lip Fillers

Lip fillers are a safe and effective way to enhance your smile. They can be used to correct asymmetry, unevenness, lines and wrinkles.

It can give you a different aesthetic to complement your features. You can enhance small areas of your lips. For example, the cupids bow area only, for more definition, or you can add volume everywhere. 

What are lip fillers?

Lip fillers are cosmetic injections made of hyaluronic acid, which is also naturally found in your body.

How they work:

Using specialised techniques the filler is placed via injection into your lips to create a defined shape and add more volume. The effect is seen immediately and the final results are after two weeks once the filler has settled. 

Before the procedure

Before the procedure, we will talk to you about the details of your treatment. This can include:

  • The potential risks of lip fillers.

You should also make sure that you’re healthy enough for this type of treatment before scheduling an appointment. If any concerns arise, speak up!

The procedure

If you’re looking to get your lips plumped, lip fillers are the way to go. The procedure is similar to facial dermal fillers, but instead of being injected into your face, they’re used on the lips.

What to expect afterwards

After the procedure, you may experience swelling and bruising in the area. This should go down in a few days as your body heals itself. You might also be sore for a few days as your muscles relax from being stretched out so much.

It’s important to keep this area clean and apply antibacterial ointment if necessary or arnica to help with the swelling or bruising.

In addition to swelling and pain, you may feel some tingling or numbness while the filler is setting into place (this is normal). If you have any concerns about these sensations or if they last longer than two weeks after the procedure has been done, contact us at 07944 715438.
