All About Lip Fillers – The Ultimate Lip Fillers Guide
Whether you want luscious pouty lips or a very subtle effect to roll back the signs of aging in that area, experienced practitioners can use dermal fillers in specific ways to achieve the look you want.
It isn’t all about celebrity Instagram account pouts – we can create those if that is what you’re looking for – but it can certainly help ordinary people who want to look their best. This quick and safe procedure produces instant and long-lasting results.
Benefits of Lip Fillers
Before beginning any lip filler treatment, Dr Bita Fox will have a lengthy discussion with you about what you would like to achieve. Dermal fillers can be used to improve the appearance of your lips in the following ways:
* Enhancing lip definition
* Eliminating smokers’ lines around the mouth
* Making the mouth area look more youthful and rejuvenated
* Increasing the fullness of thin lips
* Producing a more pronounced pout
* Helping the corners of the mouth turn upwards
Our lip filler treatment can give you any or all of these if that is the look you are aiming for.
How do they Work?
Lip fillers are made of a synthesised version of a substance that occurs naturally in the body, hyaluronic acid, which is naturally and harmlessly absorbed over time.
This substance is gently injected into the lips and around the mouth in certain areas to achieve certain results. It is injected in very small doses at a time and built up until they achieve the look you want. As the fillers are man-made, they are suitable for vegans and last up to 9 months.
What to Expect?
After we have established exactly what you are looking to achieve with lip fillers, we use a local anesthetic around the sensitive lip area to make the injections less painful. There may still be some slight discomfort so please speak to Dr Bita Fox if you find it too painful. Dr Fox, who is a very experienced and highly qualified aesthetic treatment practitioner, will then begin the injections as gently as possible.
Once she has finished, you will see the results immediately. You may experience soreness, redness, swelling and bruising but this will reduce over the following few days.
No recovery time is required for this treatment so you can go back to your normal activities immediately. We recommend that you don’t do any strenuous exercise or drink any alcohol for 24 hours after the treatment and try not to poke or manipulate the treated area.
It’s also advisable not to wear make up for 12 hours afterward and avoid extreme temperatures, such as sun beds, saunas, etc., until the swelling and redness have gone down.
When you have lip fillers with us, we take the time to find out what your individual needs are and can produce natural and subtle looking results if required.
We will talk you through everything you need to know before and after the procedure and will happily answer any questions. If you would like to talk to our team about lip fillers or any of our aesthetic treatments, call 01234 840 099 and we would be glad to speak to you.
