Lip augmentation is a popular procedure used to improve the shape, volume, symmetry and definition of your lips. This is done to create a more desirable and youthful appearance, always keeping your facial features and proportions in mind.
What does this procedure involve?
A numbing cream may be applied before treatment to reduce any pain and discomfort. Your doctor will then inject small quantities of hyaluronic acid superficially into the lips until the desired shape is achieved. They will be thoroughly massaged to ensure they are smooth before you leave.
When will I see the results ?
You will be able to see the results of the treatment immediately, however, optimal results should be judged after two weeks. This gives the hyaluronic acid enough time to settle and integrate with your own lip tissue.
Are there any side effects?
Plumping injections will often cause mild to moderate swelling for the first 24-48 hours. This is a normal reaction and the swelling may appear worse the following day. The lips will reduce in size by up to 30-50% as the swelling subsides.
What will happen at my consultation?
You will have a free confidential consultation before any treatment with no obligation. This includes discussing your concerned areas, any expectations, side effects and the treatment process. A medical history will be taken to ensure safe and appropriate treatment.
