The Low Down
On Lip Fillers
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that will enhance the shape and size of your lips.
Depending on the amount of filler used, you can gently enhance your natural shape or you can create a desired shape and add volume for a fuller,plumper pout.
Lip Filler is a Hyaluronic Acid gel that is found naturally occuring in the body, when injected , it will attract moisture and plump out beautifully, over time the body will naturally break it down
How Long Does It Last?
Depending on the product, the individual and the amount used, the time your fillers will last differs from person to person. Each person metabolises the product used at different rates. Some products are thicker and designed to last longer.
Typically, 1ml Lip Filler will last approx 6-9 months for the first time. Over time and top ups, your filler will build up and you’ll find it may last longer and you will need less.
This is a factor we can monitor over time to make sure you are happy with your shape, how it feels and the time it lasts.
WILL IT HURT?
Topical Anaesthetic is used to number the area 10-15 mins prior to your treatment for maximum comfort and there is also mild anaesthetic used in the all the Dermal Fillers that I use. The feeling is not necessarily painful but rather a pinch and a mild sting.
Swelling and/or mild bruising can occur, usually gone within 48 hours. Taking the natural supplement, arnica, a few days prior and after treatments can help prevent any bruising and promote speedy healing.
