You may feel that your lips were never defined or full enough and they need a helping hand. It may be that your lips have lost collagen and become thin and unappealing with age. Your lips may be of poor shape and you want to improve that. For whatever reason, we can find a solution that’s right for you.
Lip fillers are a Hyaluronic acid gel, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. We prefer to use a micro-cannula ( blunt needle ) technique which we have found reduces both swelling and bruising by up to 80-90% otherwise injection is by a very fine needle.
Volume can be added, definition and shape can be improved, the Cupid’s bow and philtrum can be enhanced. The Vermillion border can be enhanced and elevated. The corners of the mouth can be uplifted to give a happier appearance rather than a more miserable downturned look.
Lipstick bleeding and smokers lines can be ironed out.
We can make it really subtle or indeed not so subtle if that is the aim.
No ! Topical or a dental anaesthesia can be used. Dr Davies is a hugely experienced Cosmetic Dental Surgeon and is adept at delivering painless anaesthesia and treatment.
Hyaluronic acid has an excellent safety record and allergic reactions, whilst reported, are very rare. We have never experienced one. Mild swelling and bruising are recognised side effects but resolve very quickly.
Most examples of poor results stem from poor technique carried out by inadequately qualified, poorly trained operators in substandard clinical environments ( often beauty or hair salons! ).
The Filler is not permanent and can be ‘ dissolved ‘ if it were to prove necessary with Hyaluronidase.
The lip filler is resorbed over time. How long this process takes depends greatly on skin structure, age, lifestyle etc. Most people find the effects of treatment last 6-9 months.
