Lip filler augmentation is a wonderful treatment to restore contour, volume and shape to the lips. When you arrive to your appointment, we will give you a thorough consultation and discuss with you the results you are aiming to achieve, this may mean you need just the one session, or you may need multiple sessions to achieve your desired result.
Following achieving your desired look we would recommend of up keeping the treatments 1- 3 times a year. We are highly trained in all levels of techniques and we will use multiple techniques to achieve your desired result. If you are unsure of which amount to book, thats fine – we can help you with this decision on the day of your appointment, you will pay a deposit online, and the rest id due on the day of your appointment. This means that whether you go ahead with 0.5ml or 1ml on the day of your appointment that deposit is then deducted from the full amount remaining on the day, so don’t worry about how much to book as we will decide this upon consultation on the day. However, if this is your first treatment we do usually recommend 1ml as 0.5ml – will give a very subtle look once swelling goes down. However if you are wanting a extremely natural result or are happy to be patient in waiting for results and would rather slowly build the desired goal you could opt for 0.5ml. Please note this will double the time it takes to build them and is not cost effective.
It could take 4-6 sessions to reach your desired shape, regardless of how natural you want them. With all dermal fillers, you may look a little swollen immediately after this is due to the body response to 1. The injection inflammation and 2. The hydrophilic effect of dermal filler, dermal fillers are capable of holding 1000 times its weight in water which can be a little worrying for someones first time, but this is perfectly normal and tends to be different in each client however this usually settles in a few days -2 weeks maximum. Once this swelling goes down they will settle to be visibly more contoured, plumped and volumised.
The final results are usually seen after 2 weeks, and most clients will need 2-3 sessions to achieve their desired result. We do not often inject 1.5ml for the lips, as their are very limited suitable clients for this and these results are for a more glamorous appearance and not recommended for your first time.
effective as it should take no longer than 2-3 sessions to build your lips to the desired shape.
