Lip Filler in Southwold

Lip filler and Russian lips in Southwold

Lip Filler is chosen for its viscosity to enhance the lip body giving a fuller, plumped look.
One of the most popular enhancements are lip fillers. Lips can be very subtly changed and are buildable so over time you may require more treatment or for example have half ml once a year to maintain the desired look.

For your first lip filler treatment it is recommended to have 1ml, often clients are unsure and think 0.5ml will be better to "try" lip filler, but in previously unfilled lips it will create a very subtle change and it is probable you will not see your desired result & will want more.

After having your first 1ml if you do require more filler for your desired look and plan to build your lips it is better to leave them for 4 weeks before having another 1ml. This is because filling lips quickly over a short space of time can increase the chances of migration (where filler moves out of the lip area).

Consultations are carried out at the time of treatment for lip filler as the treatment is suitable for almost everyone.

Does it hurt to have lip filler? I have needle phobia.

I always use a strong numbing cream prior to treatment and the filler I use also contains Lidocaine which is the numbing agent which works quickly in the area. Lips are the most sensitive area to have treated but it is not unbearable, the majority of clients give the treatment 6/10 on pain level. For extremely anxious clients/those with low pain threshold/needle phobia I can offer nerve block to totally numb the lip area for a more relaxed and comfortable treatment. This is similar to when you visit the dentist and they numb you.

How can I prepare for a lip filler treament?

Please avoid blood thinning medication for 7 days before treatment. Do not stop prescribed medication for cardiovascular disease.
If you are unwell or have any active infection (ear/nose/throat/dental abcess etc) by the time of your apoointment, please rearrange your booking as these can result in delayed complications.
Please avoid alcohol & coffee 24 hours prior to treatment as it can heighten the chances of bruising, swelling & bleeding.
You can take Arnica pillules in the run up to your appointment to help reduce bruising.
Please have something to eat and drink before treatment.

How long does filler last?

Filler can last around 12-18months, this longevity depends on the clients own metabolism as it slowly breaks the filler down over time. As lip fillers are softer they can be seen to break down quicker than the harder fillers used for other facial areas such ass cheeks for example. All the fillers I use last at least 12 months.

What is the aftercare?

~To reduce swelling apply a cold compress regularly you can also take an antihistamine. You can carry on your day as normal, but bare in mind you may not want to make any social plans for a couple of days due to swelling this is particularly the case for lip fillers. ~Drink lots of water as HA absorbs 1000x its weight in water! ~Avoid extreme temperatures of hot & cold for 48hrs. eg. sunbeds/saunas. ~Avoid heavy exercise for 48 hours as it can cause migration. ~Apply arnica cream 4 times a day, as needed. ~Avoid alcohol for 24 hours. ~Light makeup may be worn 6 hrs post treatment, but do avoid rubbing/touching the area. ~If you have previously suffered with coldsores, lip injections can cause an outbreak.
