Lip Fillers are an effective treatment that safely balance the symmetry of your features by increasing the fullness of your lips. The filler is an injectable treatment of hyaluronic acid, a substance which naturally occurs in your body.
When injected, it attracts water to the area creating a fuller pout. We will work with you to ensure you get the right amount for your desired effect but you will generally want between 0.5 and 1ml. Lip fillers can also be dissolved quickly and safely if necessary.
You can see the results of your lip filler almost immediately though there is likely to be some swelling. After two or three days, your lips should have settled and you’ll see the real results. Depending on your lifestyle and the type of filler used, the effects can last between 6-12 months. After this, you may need a top up appointment to keep your lips looking full.
There are a range of factors which affect the speed at which your body processes the fillers so results will vary from client to client. Many clients ask us if lip fillers are painful. The injections can be uncomfortable and there may be some tenderness in the days following but generally, it is unlikely you’ll be in any pain. We use a topical anaesthetic to keep you as comfortable as possible.
If you’re looking for a safe, non-surgical way to make your lips plumper and fuller, lease don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re friendly, approachable and always happy to help our clients find the right solutions for their needs.
