Lips That Speak Volumes: Everything You Need To Know About Lip Filler
Thinking about enhancing your lips? Lips are all the rage at the moment, and dermal fillers are one of our most commonly performed treatments at Body Recon. To help you learn more about the treatment, here’s everything you need to know from start to finish.
First things first. What is Dermal Filler?
Swedish dermal filler is a clear gel made from a substance that is naturally present in the body, called hyaluronic acid. It occurs naturally in the skin and depletes as we age, which dermal filler allows you to restore and refresh your appearance.
Your Free Consultation
When it comes to lips, everyone is different. It’s not always as simple as making them bigger. You may want to correct the symmetry, definition and/or shape to create the perfect lips for you.
At Body Recon, we work closely with you to make these decisions during the first step of the process – your free consultation. You can book this on the same day as your treatment or in advance. This is ideal if you’d like more information about the treatment but are not entirely sure you would like to proceed. Our friendly cosmetic nurses will help you talk through your individual preferences and what you would like to achieve, together with what treatment options you have and any relevant symptoms and risks associated with them.
Getting The Perfect Results
We always promote natural looking results from our treatments. Many women are concerned that their lips will look too big, or too pouty. Fortunately, this is one of the least likely outcomes. We always aim to achieve incremental results, adding only a gradual amount of dermal filler with each treatment. This is what delivers the best outcome and is the safest way to perform the treatment. Sometimes less is more!
While the first treatment often delivers exactly what our clients are looking for, it is far more common for them to come back requesting “a little bit more” than feel it was too much. The overly big lips that you may see on celebrity gossip websites are usually due to many, many treatments over a long period of time rather than a single treatment.
What To Expect During The Treatment
All treatments at Body Recon are performed in a fully medically-equipped cosmetic clinic overseen by expert plastic surgeons and in accordance with official health and safety standards.
Your injecting nurse will first numb your lips with high-strength topical numbing cream. Once this has taken effect, a small needle is used to add dermal filler to your lips to achieve the results that you want. The whole treatment usually takes around 45 minutes, which includes a consultation and treatment plan. The treatment is comfortable and easily tolerated.
What To Expect After The Treatment
Immediately after the procedure you may expect noticeable swelling and/or bruising that can last a few days.
It is hard to predict if or how much you will swell – for most people it is minimal, and they are out in public the following day simply wearing a concealer to cover any bruising. However, it’s possible that you have noticeable swelling that people can notice for a few days. You should always plan to have no important social engagements in the 24-48 hours following your treatment.
We usually book you in for a review appointment a couple of weeks after your treatment. This is a good amount of time to make an assessment of your results – once we are confident that all swelling and bruising has subsided. If any tweaks are needed they are usually considered at this stage, though most often everything looks great and no further treatment is required.
