Lip Fillers

“All lip shapes are attractive, but some need subtle, natural looking enhancement.”

Dr Tracy Mountford on Lip Fillers

Lips have always been considered as one of the most important and attractive features of our face. They indicate our emotions, with full lips being associated with youth and beauty.

Our lips are at their fullest in our 20s, which is why we associate a plump and defined mouth with youthfulness. But the composition of our lips and surrounding structures alters as part of the natural ageing process.

From between the ages of 30-40, factors such as gravity, genetics and smoking play a role, leading to a sad-mouthed or drooping appearance. Lipstick bleed lines and a flattened cupid’s bow will also culminate in a mouth that looks less defined.

FAQ

Our range of gold standard lip filler treatments uses a smooth gel formula to deliver a natural look and feel to the treated area. Most lip enhancements are achieved through natural hyaluronic acid biodegradable dermal fillers which are specifically developed for the lips and mouth area and produce the most natural, long lasting results.

The skin on your lips is extremely thin, making them particularly vulnerable to ageing. Some hyaluronic acid dermal fillers help to fill in vertical lines, ease drooping lip corners and attract and retain moisture to smooth dry, dehydrated lips. Others have more volumising properties to contour your lips and define your cupid’s bow, as well as subtly plump up tired or deflated lips for a natural look.

We only use FDA-approved, naturally biodegradable lip fillers designed with safety and efficacy in mind. At your initial consultation with our qualified medical practitioners, we’ll discuss a personalised lip filler treatment plan that’s just right for you.

The type of lip augmentation we recommend may vary depending on your age. For instance, you may want to achieve fuller-looking lips when in your 30s, but to smooth and reduce fine lines instead when in your 50s.

We may need to consider one, or a combination, of the following:

  • Softening lipstick bleed lines by enhancing the edge of your lips
  • Smoothing vertical lip lines, again by enhancing the edge of your lips
  • Creating a natural lip contour through restoring or enhancing volume in the body of your lip
  • Lifting the edges of your lips to restore their youthful position
  • Improving the philtrum column definition of your upper lip for a lovely cupid’s bow
  • Treating the marionette area underneath your mouth to provide support to the lip, help improve shadows in the area and your lower face profile contour.

The whole process takes just a few minutes and ice can be applied afterwards to reduce any slight swelling.

You should notice results right away, with optimum results seen 5-7 days after treatment once any potential light swelling has ceased.

Lip enhancement treatments can last 9 – 12 months.

As you can see from our lip filler ‘before & afters’, we always recommend a subtle approach to create fuller yet natural looking lips. You can always build on the effect with subsequent top up treatments, which will be tailored at every visit so that lip plumpness is achieved in a soft and subtle way. Your medical practitioner will give you all the advice you need.

It is always advisable to use the most highly trained and skilled medical practitioners.

Dermal fillers are not likely to affect your baby; however, we always suggest waiting until after you deliver and after you have finished breastfeeding. As no medical studies have been performed on pregnant women, we cannot predict how the skin will react to the filler, considering the body’s hormonal changes during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Your doctor will be able to offer you advice based on your own personal and medical history. Given how much your body changes during pregnancy, we don’t know how it will react to a new treatment; therefore, it is wise to err on the side of caution when considering cosmetic procedures.
