One of the big celebrity led trends in recent times has been the plump pout. This has led to a rising popularity in the use lip fillers.  These are cosmetic treatments that add extra fullness to your lips and must be administered by an aesthetics practitioner like Adrienne from Adrienne’s Aesthetics.

Fuller, plumper limps look amazing and give a great confidence boost to those that have it, but this is a cosmetic treatment so there are some things you should know before getting it done.

As a Botox Clinic in Newcastle here are some things you should know:

  1. What goes into a lip filler?

To start with, it is good to understand what it is that is being injected into your lips.  In most cases, this will be a collagen or hyaluronic acid (HA) based filler that increases volume and size of the lips.  Collagen works to plump the lip while hyaluronic acid plumps and also traps water within the lips for a more natural pout.

  1. How much filler is needed?

To get the best effect from lip fillers, it is often best to work with an expert like Adrienne who is also a fully qualified Nurse, and build up to your desired look.  If you have thin lips but want a full look, it is best to use a few sessions to create the look and build it in stages.

  1. How long do lip fillers last?

This depends on a number of factors including the kind of lip filler used and the person’s age.  On average, the treatment lasts 4-6 months before a top-up treatment is required.

  1. How long do the results take?

Just after the process, your slips might be a little swollen and some ice might help reduce this.  Arnica tablets may also be recommended to prevent bruising.  After 24 hours your lips will have settled down and you can see the end result.

  1. Is there any pain?

Different people feel different things, but most professionals will use a dental block or a numbing gel to reduce the pain involved in the initial process.

  1. Do lips still feel natural?

If you use a professional with a high-quality product, then your lips should feel the same after treatment only fuller.

  1. How often does the treatment go wrong?

Obviously, the chances of a reaction to a treatment depend on exactly what type of lip filler is used.  Generally, there is around 1-3% chance of an allergic reaction to collagen skin treatments and a lower figure for hyaluronic acid fillers.

  1. Can they be reversed?

If you choose HA fillers, these can be removed.  The treatment involves using an enzyme called hyaluronidase which naturally dissolves the HA and reverses the treatment.  So, if you do have treatment don’t like the look, this can be done to remove the effects.
