What is lip augmentation?

Lip fillers are injections of hyaluronic gel placed into the lips. The lips are composed of layers. From the orbicularis oris muscle to the vermilion border (white roll). Injections of filler are strategically placed into these layers to produce the desired results.

Russian lips (flat lip) vs normal lip augmentation

Russian lips give more of a lip lift (vertical projection). As opposed to a traditional lip augmentation which projects the lips forward. The injection techniques are different for each type. Typically a combination of Russian lips and traditional   lip augmentation provide the optimal result. This will be discussed with you at your consultation/treatment day. We can control the technique depending on the look you wish to achieve.

Lip augmentation is often combined with chin and nose to restore and correct your profile, beautifying and providing balance.

Book one of your Tx plans (2ML or 3ML) for this treatment.

How long does it last?

Like all dermal filler procedures, filler lasts dramatically longer with repeated treatments. In the lips, results can last up to 6-9 months after 1st treatment. With the 2nd treatment the results can last up to 18 months. Of course this is not an exact science and filler is metabolised different between individuals.

Does it hurt?

To our knowledge we are one of the few clinics in the UK providing dental block for total anaesthesia. Its the gold standard pain relief for lip augmentation. Our clients do not feel a thing during the Lip Augmentation process. After a few injections of local anaesthetic into the gum your lips will go completely numb. It will numb the lips from inside out, numbing all layers of the lips. We do also offer Numbing cream, many of our clients prefer numbing cream to dental block. One of the common reasons why is because they do not like the numb feeling for a long period of time. Numbing cream wears off quicker.

PRO’s and CON’s

Lip Augmentation with Numbing cream

Pros: You need no injections to start feeling numb, after treatment the numb feeling disappears faster, there is much less swelling overall.

Cons: you can feel a pinching sensation whilst having treatment, you are aware of some mild discomfort.

Lip Augmentation with dental block.

Pros: you feel nothing during treatment.

Cons: Swelling can almost be double to that of numbing cream, it takes on average 4 injections to start the numbing process (which you will feel), you will be numb for a longer period of time post treatment.

What type of filler do you use?

We stock most types of dermal filler brands ranging from Perfectha to Juvederm. We only use hyaluronic acid filler, as this is safe and if needed, completely reversible. Hyaluronic acid is non- permanent filler. Permanent filler caries the risk of infection, rejection and long term scarring. We do not use permanent filler. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring and the this filler will integrate with your biology to provide you with a natural enhancement. Lips are highly unique and therefore we tailor what product we will use on you on at your consultation. Some clients require thin filler for just definition, others would like thicker filler for greater volume and plumpness. Clients become fixated on what brand of filler we use etc. However trust us when we say, over 90% of the cosmetic result depends on the skill and artistic flare of the medical professional holding the filler in their hand rather than the brand of filler being used.

Needle or cannula?

For lips we use both. The determination of the technique will be decided at your consultation / treatment day.

Combination treatment

Lip augmentation are often incorporated with chin filler to completely balance the profile. We can perform this at the same time.
