Lip Filler in Southwold
Lip filler and Russian lips in Southwold
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.
Here at V, I use a signature technique called Love Lips that creates beautiful lips for everyone, whatever age or lip shape! This technique is 90% less painful than regular lip filler and beautifully defines the cupids bow, whilst minimising bruising.
For your first lip filler treatment it is recommended to have 1ml which I use in the signature technique, 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.

Will it be painful?I always use numbing cream prior to treatment and the filler I use also contains Lidocaine which is the numbing agent which works quickly in the area. Some facial areas are more sensitive and these will be numbed with Lidocaine separately.
How can I prepare for the treament?Please avoid blood thinning medication for 7 days before treatment. Do not stop prescribed medication for cardiovascular disease. Do not have any important events planned for 2 weeks incase of bruising. Avoid any aggressive facial treatments including AHA peels, waxing, tweezing or hair removal cream on the area 3 days before treatment. 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 the treatment last?PDO Mono Threads last in the skin around 3-4 months as they are gradually breaking down and being absorbed by the body. The after effects are increased collagen and elastin in the areas that the threads are placed.
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. ~Please bear in mind threads are extremely likely to noticeably bruise, this bruising can last 4 weeks on some occasions. ~Avoid extreme temperatures of hot & cold for 48hrs. eg. sunbeds/saunas. ~Avoid heavy exercise for 48 hours. ~Apply arnica cream 4 times a day, as needed. ~Light makeup may be worn 6 hrs post treatment, but do avoid rubbing/touching the area.
