Lip fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in London. They are a quick and relatively painless way to enhance the appearance of the lips, making them fuller, plumper, and more defined.

In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of lip fillers, what to expect with before and afters, and how to choose the right clinic for the treatment.

The benefits of lip fillers

Some people want to improve the appearance of their lips after they have lost volume due to ageing or weight loss. Others want to create a more symmetrical lip shape. And others may simply want to add a touch of fullness and definition to their lips. This can be done with dermal fillers.

Here are some of the reasons why people choose lip filler treatment:

  • They can instantly make your lips look fuller and more defined.
  • They can help to improve the symmetry of your lips.
  • They can create a more youthful appearance.
  • They are relatively quick and painless to have done.
  • The results are typically seen immediately and can last for up to 12 months.

The procedure

The treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that typically takes about 30 minutes and can be done under local anaesthetic.

The first step is to numb the lips with a topical anaesthetic cream. Once the lips are numb, the doctor will inject the filler into the lips using a fine needle. The filler is a gel-like substance that is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body.

We also offer a dental block if you would prefer. This is where we would do a series of small injections inside the mouth which will make the lips completely numb so that you do not feel a thing during the treatment. 

The amount of filler that is injected will vary depending on the individual’s desired results. Some people may only need a small amount of filler to add a touch of fullness to their lips, while others may need more filler to achieve a more dramatic result.

After the filler is injected, the doctor may massage the lips to help distribute the filler evenly. The results of lip filler treatment are typically seen immediately.

Before and afters

Choosing the right clinic

No matter what your reason for wanting lip fillers, it is important to choose the right clinic and practitioner. When choosing a clinic for lip fillers, it is important to do your research and choose one that is reputable and has a good track record. You should also make sure that the injector is experienced and qualified to perform the procedure.

If you are considering getting lip fillers, there are a few things you should keep in mind:

  • Make sure to choose a reputable clinic and practitioner.
  • Explore reviews. Google and TrustPilot are good places to find them. Look for verified reviews – which are less likely to be fake.
  • Be clear about your expectations. Don’t be afraid to ask any questions. Every clinic should be open to questions.
  • Do your research and understand the risks and side effects of the procedure.
