No matter what age or gender you are, we all share one thing in common: nobody wants to look older than their years. Indeed, many of us don’t even want to look our actual age and will spend a lot of money to look ten years’ younger.
One of the first signs of ageing, something which in its early stages may only be visible to yourself, is that your lips slowly start to thin over time. Thin lips can add years to your age and are a sure sign that your skin is starting to lose its vitality and youth. The great news is that there is a procedure you can undergo to not only halt the visible signs of ageing but also give your face more definition and a glamorous but all-natural-looking pout.
Lip fillers for thin lips are hugely popular. Since the treatment takes just a few minutes and has long-lasting effects, the procedure is extremely popular for men and women of all ages.
But what are lip fillers? Let’s take a closer look.
How can dermal fillers for thin lips work?
Since fillers contain hyaluronic acid which is found in human collagen, fillers for the face are designed to enhance your facial features as opposed to changing them altogether or dramatically changing the way that you look. By undergoing a few small injections into your lips, you can create a younger, plumper pout within minutes.
Here at Look Lovely London, we use two well-known filler brands: Emervel and Restylane. The fillers are biodegradable so your body will break it down over time and the procedure itself is extremely safe. However, as with all non-surgical enhancements, there are a few minor side effects which very occasionally a patient might experience, the details of which are below.
What are the side effects associated with lip fillers?
Many patients will not experience any side effects whatsoever but the most common side effect associated with lip fillers is minor swelling and redness. However, this is usually short-lived and will disappear after a few minutes.
Since lips are more vascular than other treatable areas on the face, you may find that small bruising develops across the lip area. This will usually disappear within 3-5 days of your treatment and you will be offered an ice pack during and after your treatment to keep bruising to a minimum. Since the main side effect associated with lip fillers is minor bruising, we always recommend to our patients that they plan their diary in advance to allow for this, just in case.
The most important thing to remember is that when it comes to lip fillers, pain is usually very minimal. You may experience a little discomfort when the needle is administered into the lip but since the procedure takes just a few minutes, any minor pain you might experience will only last for a short while.
How much do lip fillers cost?
There are many clinics across the UK offering lip fillers and prices can vary wildly. If you’re centrally based, lip filler prices in London certainly do range from the very cheap to the very expensive, and we would always recommend that you avoid both.
When it comes to any non-surgical enhancements, it’s important to do your research and put your trust in a clinic which is going to look after you, explain the procedure and, above all, charge you a reasonable and competitive rate for the procedure. Here at Look Lovely London, we charge just £280 for 1ml of lip filler.
If you’re unsure about having lip fillers, or you have any concerns about the procedure, our team at Look Lovely London is here to help. You will be offered a free no-obligation consultation to discuss the procedure in more detail and ask any questions you might have. It will also give our experienced doctors the opportunity to review your lip area and make the necessary recommendations.
Our ethos is to only give our patients what they actually need and we don’t believe in overdoing fillers where it isn’t necessary, so you can be sure that you’ll leave our clinic looking younger and, most importantly, completely natural.
