We use 1ml of Hyaluronic Acid Filler, which is a naturally created substance found in the body that helps retain moisture and stimulate natural collagen growth. to enhance the look of the lips.
Once your lips are completely numbed (using a topical anaesthetic), the injector will look closely at your lips to assess the area where they will need to inject the filler to achieve the results you are looking for. Many patients agree that there is little to no pain beyond the feeling of pressure and a slight pinch or “twinge”. Overall, you can expect about 30-45 minutes for the whole appointment. There’s no downtime and afterwards you can safely drive yourself home.
Patients can expect mild bruising, swelling, and soreness after treatment. It can take up to two weeks for lip filler to settle in completely, though most patients report that filler settles after a few days. Fillers like Juvéderm attract water to the cells so you can expect mild swelling for the first 48 hours.
If needed we offer a follow up appointment to ensure that your lips are settling and you are 100% happy with the results, this is usually only necessary for first-time filler clients.
