Whether your lips are naturally thin, or have lost their fullness over time as a result of ageing, you may have considered having lip fillers. Not everyone is born with luscious lips and even those who are experience a reduction in the plumpness of their pout over time.
The older you get, the less collagen you produce, which is why people often notice a change in the shape and size of their lips as they age. However it’s not only ageing that can have an effect; the sun’s ultraviolet rays can also cause collagen to break down and lips to thin.
If you want to keep your naturally full lips, or wish you could enhance the ones you were born with, you might want to consider dermal fillers. We understand that with any procedure there is always a concern with potential side effects, which is why we have put together this simple guide to ensure you have all the information you need before you decide if dermal fillers are right for you.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are soft tissue filler which can be injected into the skin to give a smoother, fuller appearance. Look Lovely London uses Restylane to enhance the lip area and provide border definition in order to achieve either a glamorous or natural look, whichever you prefer.
The main component of the fillers we use is hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a naturally occurring substance found in all living organisms. Hyaluronic acid is a natural moisture-binding ingredient that keeps skin plump and hydrated.
How long do lip fillers last?
The length of time dermal fillers last for can vary from patient to patient, however fillers which have been applied to the lip area using one of the brands supplied by us should last between 6-12 months.
How much do lip fillers cost?
Look lovely London is currently offering first time customers a special price of £250 for a 1 ml syringe of dermal filler. This amount of filler is usually adequate for treatment.
Are there any side effects from dermal fillers?
Virtually anyone can have lip fillers if they are looking to reduce lines and wrinkles or create more defined, fuller lips, and side effects are very minimal. As the main component within the fillers we use is a naturally occurring substance, the risk of side effects is much smaller.
The most common reaction to fillers is swelling, which usually disappears within 4-5 days. As the lip area is more vascular than other parts of the face, bruising can often be slightly more noticeable, however an icepack will be provided straight away after the procedure to minimise any bruising and swelling.
