Lip fillers are either made from hyaluronic acid or longer-lasting ingredients. We always recommend you have a temporary filler first, so you can check that you like the new shape of your lips. We also advise a very natural enhanced look rather than an over-filled look, since it’s so much more attractive to have an enhanced lip shape that looks natural and complements your other facial features.
Lip fillers and lipline treatments are mostly for women, but we also treat men who would like more definition in the lip. Upper lip line treatment is usually for people who have been smokers, those whose lips are starting to age, and people who would like more volume in their lips.
We always apply a numbing cream before the treatment, which involves making a series of minute injections precisely along the lip line or into the body of the lip to create the desired look. You’ll always enjoy a detailed client consultation beforehand so we know exactly what lip shape to aim for. Treatment usually takes two sessions to let any swelling subside, important because it means we avoid over-filling.
You can expect to see some bruising and swelling, so we advise you don’t go anywhere special for a few days after the treatment. Just rest, relax and wait for the end results to appear.
