Lip fillers are a leading cosmetic treatment here in the UK, with lasting results, and the ability to improve both your appearance and self-confidence. Used by men and women for a variety of reasons, they’re likely as popular with your neighbours as they are on the celebrity circuit. A treatment we proudly offer here at our York aesthetics clinic, find out a bit more about lip fillers in this dedicated blog post.
What are lip fillers made of?
We use lip fillers with a hyaluronic base. It’s the secret to volumised, moisturised lips and being a naturally-occurring chemical, it’s easily tolerated by the body.
Why have lip fillers?
There are lots of reasons our clients book in for lip injection treatment here in York:
- To increase the volume of the lips
- To target fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth
- To enhance the shape, size and symmetry of the lips
- As an alternative to more invasive and permanent surgery
- As part of a wider makeover, such as with anti-wrinkle injections
How long do lip injections last?
A typical timeframe is 6-18 months, but it varies between individuals
, as lots of factors can affect how quickly the hyaluronic acid breaks down such as your metabolism and age, and the amount you’ve had.
Will I need to top up
my lip fillers?
Your lip injections may need a few days to settle post-treatment, at which point we may be able to make a small top-up if needed. Once you’re happy with your results, we typically suggest our clients top up every year or so to maintain their lips’ appearance.
What are the positives and negatives of lip injections?
Our clients here in York love how quick and easy treatment is, and how soon results can develop afterwards. Lip fillers are also known for being low pain, and most of our clients can go straight back to work without needing downtime. Drawbacks of treatment can be cost – though we may be able to offer finance based on your circumstances. Also, repeat top-ups are needed to maintain results, however, this can also be considered a positive as it makes the treatment flexible.
How much lip filler do I need?
It varies from person to person, which is why we always book a consultation with our clients ahead of treatment. If you’d like to go ahead with treatment here in York, give us a call today.
