In the last few years, the profile of lip augmentation London treatments has exploded. Largely down to celebrity endorsement and growing media attention, dermal fillers for the lips are one of the most popular aesthetic treatments on the market today. However, some patients may feel reluctant about seeking lip filler treatment, with visions of over-inflated pouts prevalent online and in the magazines. However, in the hands of a skilled practitioner such as Dermasurge’s consultant dermatologist, Dr Hiba Injibar, lip fillers are nothing to be feared, with many enjoying a subtle enhancement without looking unnatural or overdone.
Patients Before and After Images
What does the treatment do?
Dermal fillers are the best option for providing volume and definition to the lips, providing a volumised, more balanced look and correcting issues with shape and asymmetry. Whether a patient possesses naturally thin lips, or lips have lost volume as a result of the ageing process, making the face look older and exaggerating the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the lips, fillers can help create a youthful, fuller pout.
At Dermasurge, all treatments require an in-depth consultation and a thorough examination with Dr Injibar. This allows her to fully assess the structure of the face, so that she may craft the perfect look that seamlessly enhances your natural beauty and restores balance to the appearance. In addition, the consultation process gives patients the opportunity to discuss their desires and goals, so that Dr Injibar may tailor her approach to suit their needs.
Frequently Asked Questions
Dermal fillers are highly safe, and suitable for most patients. However, like all treatments, there are some contraindications. During the consultation process, Dr Injibar will examine your medical history to ensure it is safe for treatment to go ahead. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should not seek out dermal filler treatments.
As the lips are a highly sensitive area, many patients may be concerned about the level of pain associated with lip filler treatment. However, there is little need to worry. Dr Injibar will always do her utmost to ensure patient comfort and can use numbing cream if required. In addition, some fillers contain lidocaine, a form of local anaesthetic, to minimise any discomfort.
Immediately after treatment, patients may experience swelling, redness, bruising, itching, or tenderness to the lips as a result of injections, though this should subside quickly.
The longevity of treatment varied from patient to patient. This is because dermal fillers are largely made up of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance within the body, and each individual breaks HA down at different speeds. Because of this, fillers may last anywhere between 6 and 12 months.
