Lip Filler – The Facts

Lip Filler FactsDermal fillers for the lips are now one of the most popular, non-surgical procedures in the UK and with exposure in the media with TV stars and film actresses undergoing more and more injectable treatments, lip fillers have become the ‘go-to’ treatment for those wishing to restore a youthful volume to their lips.

At Doctor A Aesthetics in Hale and Stockton Heath, Dr A offers hyaluronic acid lip fillers as a temporary solution to thinning, ageing or dehydrated lips.

Why get lip fillers?

There are several reasons that you might consider lip fillers. It might be that your lips have started to lose their volume during the natural ageing process or because of certain lifestyle factors such as smoking or excessive sun exposure.

Dermal fillers are a gel-like substance and instantly volumize the body of the lips and indeed can re-shape the surrounding line of the lips, offering a more pleasing appearance. If you smoke, you may find that you have tiny lines around the top or bottom of your lips. Dermal fillers, when injected in small quantities into a wrinkle, can lift and plump out wrinkles.

The hyaluronic acid within dermal fillers also acts as a hydrator, as it can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water, therefore, this treatment is superb for revitalising the skin’s appearance in this area.

Who should administer lip fillers?

Choosing someone with medical expertise is vital when it comes to dermal fillers for the lips and reports of complications are increasing as non-qualified practitioners who aren’t aware of what to do should a complication arise, are injecting without the proper accreditations or indeed, experience.

Doctor A is a fully-qualified medical professional who is also registered with the General Medical Council, therefore knows the anatomy of the face, where to place the injections safely, correctly and with efficacy and is prepared for any unforeseen occurrence.

How do you know you are suitable for lip fillers?

Prior to a lip filler treatment, we require you to attend a no-obligation consultation with Doctor A, so that he can discuss your concerns, examine your lips and facial area and check your medical history to ensure you are medically fit for treatment.

Once he has approved your suitability for the treatment and discussed expected results, you will be invited back to one of our clinics in Hale or Warrington for treatment.

Lip Filler treatment

Lip filler treatment takes around 30 to 45 minutes and may require some numbing beforehand. However, most lip fillers contain Lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, so you may not need a numbing preparation. The doctor will insert either a needle or cannula and inject the area of concern.

Results are immediate and you may experience some swelling, slight bruising and tenderness following your treatment. However, you will be advised on all aftercare and how to look after yourself after your procedure.

Your results can last anything from 4 to 12 months, depending on the product used as well as your own metabolic reaction to the treatment. If you smoke, exercise excessively or expose your skin to excessive sun, you may notice you need to return to the clinic sooner for another treatment.
