We all want that kissable smile. Whether your lips are thin, unbalanced or you just need a bit of pep in your pout, there are so many reasons to try lip injections – and the best part is, they’re non-permanent, so there’s absolutely no commitment needed.
Your lip filler treatment will average around an hour, which makes this a relatively quick procedure that you could even book into your lunch hour. It includes time for the pre-treatment consultation, plus allows for all questions to be asked and answered. The treatment itself lasts around 40 minutes, and you’ll see results straight away, which will last for 12-15 months.
We offer an anaesthetic (either a cream or an injection), plus ice packs to reduce discomfort and swelling. The lip filler injections themselves contain an anaesthetic too, which all help to make the treatment more pleasant. On top of this, the procedure is extremely safe, with reactions rare – though you may have some slight swelling or bruising for a few days.
Ideal for shaping and improving your lips, these fillers can give you a more balanced smile. What’s more, as we age, our lips can thin, so this treatment can actually give you a more youthful look, with plump, luscious lips.
Once you’ve had lip fillers, it’s easy to look after your pout. We advise against touching or massaging your lips immediately following treatment, and to avoid the sun and using any make-up round the area. However, if you’d like to still use make-up or you want to disguise some of the swelling and bruising that follows the procedure, we do stock a special concealer.
Many patients are anxious about the cost of treatment – especially because it can be portrayed negatively in the media – but it is a much more affordable alternative to plastic surgery, and despite being non-permanent, you’ll enjoy the results for well over a year.
