Lip fillers add extra volume and plumpness to lips which may be lacking in shape or elasticity.
Lip fillers deliver almost immediate results by using a medically developed solution, which is injected into the lips.
At Saltash Aesthetics we use Juvéderm® Ultra and Belotero as a lip filler, which contains Hyaluronic Acid; a naturally occurring substance that retains moisture and so helps the skin to look plumper.
HOW LONG DO LIP FILLERS LAST?
Juvederm® lip augmentation fillers are temporary and will typically last between 6-8 months, but this can vary depending on lifestyle factors, such as smoking or sun exposure as well as how quickly your body breaks down the filler.
DO LIP FILLERS HURT?
You will feel a bearable level of discomfort. Some clients choose to have anaesthetic cream applied to the lips, which should make the treatment more comfortable. The lip filler also contains a local anaesthetic called Lidocaine.
How will I look afterwards?
By working with the natural shape of the lips to add volume and definition. ‘Duck lips’ often occur when the wrong type or too much filler has been used. We strive to achieve a natural look for our clients.
At Saltash Aesthetics you'll only ever be treated by a fully qualified and registered healthcare professional. We only use the highest grade medical products and perform all treatments in a clinical environment.
HOW LONG BEFORE I CAN WEAR LIP LINER OR LIP STICK AGAIN?
No makeup or product should be worn or applied to your lips for at least 12 hours following treatment.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You will instantly notice a difference but for the product to completely settle in it may take 2-3 weeks. The swelling and bruising, if any, will subside within a few days.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
For up to 2 weeks after your treatment you should avoid saunas or sunbeds. Manipulation of the treated area should also be avoided.
