Creating fuller lips and accentuating the smile to give a natural look with the latest lip enhancement and lip filler treatments.
As thinning lips become a common reality as we get older, the safe and effective anti ageing treatment of lip enhancement has become increasingly popular. The best way to give lips a fuller, plumper appearance – and hence a more attractive, youthful appearance – is to restore lost volume and moisture with lip fillers that contain the body’s own natural material, hyaluronic acid. Lip fillers are the most common form of treatment to subtly smooth fine lines around the mouth.
There are many different lip fillers options available, with each method creating slightly different results and benefits. Sheridan France offers a choice of different lip fillers in her London clinics, including Restylane® Lipp and Juvéderm® Ultra.
Our experienced practitioner is skilled in knowing not only which of these lip fillers to choose for each individual but also what will look the most natural. Your treatment will therefore be designed specifically to meet your lip augmentation needs.
After a full consultation in one of our London clinics, topical unaesthetic is generally applied to the lip to numb the area. Because the lips are a highly sensitive part of the body, anesthesia is usually recommended before lip enhancement. Once the area is numb, several small injections of lip filler are administered using a very fine needle. All the products we use contain the local anaesthetic lidocaine to numb the lips, so the treatment is virtually pain free and only takes 20-40 minutes.
It is normal to experience some mild swelling, and on rare occasions some soreness or mild bruising, following the treatment, but this usually resolves itself after a day or two. It can be reduced by applying a cold compress on the lips for ten minutes immediately after the treatment.
Over time the product will gradually dissolve away naturally, leaving your lips the same as before the treatment. Results will last increasingly longer the more treatments you have.
