Lip Fillers & Lip Enhancement

Why choose lip enhancement treatment?

Some people are born with thinner lips, while others lose some of the fat in the their lips as they get older. Lip enhancement treatment can help you fulfil your aesthetic goal of having fuller, defined lips for a more youthful appearance. Our experienced team member, Dr James Littler, is an expert in facial aesthetics. He can deliver a personalised treatment plan to help you achieve excellent, natural-looking results that ensure harmony between your face and lips. James can also provide subtle lip enhancement treatment to reduce the appearance of “lipstick bleeding” (lines and wrinkles) around your mouth.

What is lip enhancement treatment?

This procedure involves injecting small amounts of dermal filler into the lip. Dermal fillers are natural or synthetic gels that can be used to lift and add volume to the lips for a plumper appearance. Most dermal fillers are produced by combining hyaluronic acid (HA) with proteins to create a clear, sterile substance that is safe and effective to inject. Naturally found in our bodies, HA attracts and binds water to increase skin and soft tissue volume and hydration, but the amount of HA the body produces ultimately decreases with age.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Generally, most people can undergo lip enhancement treatment, but our team of friendly clinicians will assess your medical history to confirm your suitability. Patients that are exempt from undergoing treatment include those who are:

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Allergic to the filler or lidocaine combined with the filler
  • Suffering from an active infection at the site to be injected
  • Taking blood thinning medication, due to the increased risk of bleeding and bruising

Is lip enhancement treatment painful?

Many dermal fillers contain a local anaesthetic, so it is unlikely that you will experience any pain during the procedure. However, as the lips are particularly sensitive, we will apply cream to numb the treatment area and further minimise discomfort. We can also provide a dental block to ensure a virtually pain-free experience.

What can I expect from the appointment?

A consultation will be arranged, where you will need to fill out a medical form and photographs of your face will be taken. During this consultation, James will ask you what you hope to achieve with treatment and discuss how realistic this will be. You will then be asked to complete a consent form that will enable us to carry out the procedure.

Once your lips have been thoroughly cleaned with antiseptic wipes, James will inject the filler. The treatment area will be gently massaged to ensure the filler is spread evenly across the lip for a highly satisfactory result.

How long will it take for treatment to work, and how long will it last?

You should notice the results immediately, but we will schedule a follow-up appointment two weeks after the procedure to review your condition and determine whether further treatment is required. Visible correction typically lasts between 6 months to a year, but treatment can be repeated as and when necessary.

What should I do after I’ve had lip enhancement treatment?

Make sure to avoid:

  • Touching your lips or applying lipstick for at least 6 hours
  • Exposing yourself to extreme temperatures from steam rooms, saunas and UV light, which should remedy any swelling
  • Taking any non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (e.g. aspirin, ibuprofen) for at least 24 hours

Are there any side effects to treatment?

Mild swelling, redness, bruising and itching are typical side effects that you may experience after treatment, but these usually subside within 2 to 4 days. Prior to the procedure, we can prescribe some medication in order to minimise the risk of any cold sores occurring on or around the treatment area.

What is the price of lip enhancement treatment?

Lip enhancement treatment costs £285.
