No matter how old we are, there’s always something we would change about our appearance. Whether it’s losing weight, toning up, changing our hair or getting our nails done, looking after our appearance is key to our self-confidence.
However, one of the main causes of low self-esteem amongst men and women of a certain age is that with all the best intentions, it can feel impossible to stop the signs of ageing.
One of the most common areas on the face which can start to change as a person ages is the lip area. Fine lines can appear around the mouth, and lips themselves can start to thin over time.
Ageing around the lip area is very common and something which many of us would want to improve given half the chance.
The great news is that you can instantly reduce the signs of ageing around the lip area, simply by undergoing a few lip-plumping injections, also known as lip fillers.
Lip fillers are very commonplace these days, with many celebrities opting to plump up their lips to maintain a glamorous and youthful appearance. And since the treatment isn’t too expensive, you don’t have to be a celebrity to enjoy having a younger looking pout.
We’ve prepared this short guide on dermal fillers for the lip area and explained a little more about the procedure, how much it costs and what to expect after the treatment.
What is dermal filler and how does it work?
Dermal fillers work to simply replace the collagen around the lip area that has been lost over time. You undergo a few small injections of filler to the lips and the results can be seen almost immediately, although the full results usually take effect about ten days after your treatment.
Here at Look Lovely London, our dermal filler is made up of Emervel and Restylane, both of which have been designed to give you plump, glamorous lips and a new youthful appearance.
Fillers are made up of a soft gel that contains hyaluronic acid, which is actually found in human collagen, so you can be sure that the results will look natural. The filler itself is also completely biodegradable so your body will naturally break it down over time.
How much do lip plumping injections cost?
When it comes to lip filler injection costs, UK clinics’ fees can vary quite dramatically, ranging from the very cheap to the vastly expensive, both of which we would strongly advise against. Here at Look Lovely London, our prices start from £280 for one syringe of filler and £460 for two syringes, depending on requirements.
Are there any side effects from dermal fillers?
If you’re worried about having lip filler injections, side effects are usually pretty minimal so there is no cause for concern. However, it’s important to remember that lips are more vascular and are more likely to bruise than other areas on the face.
We usually advise our customers to block out a period of about ten days in the diary just in case there is any bruising that they may be likely to feel self-conscious about.
Bruising usually disappears within three to five days after your treatment and our team will always supply you with an ice pack before your treatment which will minimise any bruising, and you can also apply an ice pack to the lip area at home.
Although bruising is more common with lip plumping injections, you can rest assured that dermal fillers are extremely safe and complications are usually pretty rare.
If your thinning lips are getting you down, dermal fillers can really help to restore your natural appearance. And since our policy at Look Lovely London is to avoid the ‘trout pout’ at all costs, you can be absolutely sure that the results will be completely natural looking and nobody will ever need to know that you’ve undergone lip fillers.
