THIN LIPS &
Thinning lips, or an asymmetric lip line, are most often the result of genetics; however, as we age we also lose natural volume in this area – which can lead to the formation of lines and wrinkles around the mouth, while contributing to slackening of the lower-face. As a result of popular culture, the influence of celebrities and even social media, lip augmentation has increased dramatically; however lip volumisation should still be carefully considered, and performed in a way that complements your facial features.

The lip area can be especially sensitive; however, we use lip-specific dermal fillers containing a local anaesthetic known as lidocaine, which helps to reduce discomfort. Applying a topical numbing cream, prior to treatment, can also help to dull the sensation.
Artistically administered, dermal filler will gently volumise the lips, define their shape, and restore what has been lost with time. In this way, our expert team of injectors produce a result that is discreet, understated, and in keeping with your natural anatomy.
The lips are most prone to swelling and the area will feel tender for the next day or so. However this is completely normal and most patients are fit to continue with their day as normal. If bruising does occur, it is easily covered with post-procedure makeup – though this should not be applied until the day following treatment. We also encourage patients to sleep with their head elevated for the first few nights following the procedure, to keep any swelling to a minimum.
The volumisation is immediately noticeable; however, this will settle over the coming days. The best results are seen in two weeks’ time, when the filler has fully integrated with the tissue and the lips have settled.
