Lip fillers are becoming a more and more popular treatment and it’s important to seek out an expert in the field. Using precise placement of dermal fillers our doctors will create your perfect pout. We can augment the shape, definition, ratio and size of your lips to restore, rejuvenate and enhance your natural lips, smoothing out ‘smokers lines’ or ‘lipstick bleed lines’, whilst avoiding the dreaded overdone look.
The current generation of dermal fillers lasts around 8-10 months on average, with the results visible immediately after treatment. Whilst our unique techniques reduce the incidence, initial swelling lasting around 48 hours may be visible and the final result can take two weeks or so to fully develop as the filler absorbs and retains water and settles over this period. Lips are best built up slowly over a period of time to avoid injury to the delicate lip tissue and ending up overdone. Discomfort is kept to an absolute minimum by the use of a dental nerve block; tiny injections inside the mouth that completely numb the lips, combined with anaesthetic within the filler itself.
It’s normal to be able to feel the product within the lip initially but this should settle over the first couple of weeks. As our clinic director regularly says ‘lumps are not normal’; they do happen on occasion and if there is any issue with your lip filler then we are more than happy to see you back in clinic to fix any problems….. In fact we’re developing a reputation for repairing poor filler work.
