Everything You Need to Know About Lip Fillers

Lip fillers have become increasingly popular in the realm of non-surgical cosmetic procedures, offering individuals a way to enhance their lips and achieve fuller, more defined pouts. If you’re considering lip fillers or just curious about them, here are some common questions answered:

Will my lips look natural?

This is a common question.  The answer is, yes!  Lips come in all shapes and sizes; we always respect your natural anatomy.  Our goal is not to create something you never had, rather enhance what you once had.  We can also improve symmetry and smokers lines with a little dermal filler.  We believe that you only notice bad results, and good results just look great!

How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?

The longevity of lip fillers can vary depending on the type of filler used and individual factors. Generally, hyaluronic acid-based fillers, like those commonly used for lip augmentation, can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months. Factors such as metabolism, lifestyle, and the amount of filler injected can influence how long the results last.

How Long Does Lip Filler Need to Settle?

After getting lip fillers, you might notice immediate results, but the full settling period can take about 1-2 weeks. During this time, any swelling or minor asymmetries typically resolve, revealing the final outcome of the treatment.

What Is the Best Method of Lip Fillers?

The best method of lip fillers often depends on your desired outcome and the expertise of your injector. Hyaluronic acid fillers are popular for their natural look and feel. Your practitioner should discuss different options and techniques to achieve the results you want.

How Painful Is Lip Filler?

Lip filler injections are generally well-tolerated, with most patients experiencing mild discomfort. At Exthetics we use a strong numbing cream to minimise any pain during the procedure.  The fillers can also contain lidocaine.

How Much Does Lip Filler Cost?

The cost of lip fillers can vary based on location, provider, and type of filler used. On average in the UK, 1ml of lip filler can range from £200 to £500. It’s important to consult with a qualified practitioner to get an accurate quote.  If you are paying under £200 for lip filler, you may want to question the level of expertise of your practitioner.

Can You Feel Lip Fillers When Kissing?

Interestingly, this question is on the minds of many!  When done correctly, lip fillers should feel natural and not significantly alter sensation. Most individuals report no difference in feeling when kissing post-treatment.

Yes, 1ml of lip filler can make a noticeable difference in volume and shape, particularly for those seeking subtle enhancement or correction of asymmetry.  At Exthetics, we offer two treatments for those wanting very natural enhancements and those with a thinner lip.

Lip fillers and Botox serve different purposes. Lip fillers add volume and shape to the lips, while Botox is used to relax muscles and reduce wrinkles. The choice between the two depends on your specific concerns and desired outcome. Many individuals opt for both treatments to address different aspects of facial rejuvenation.

If you’re considering lip fillers or any other cosmetic procedure, it’s essential to consult with a qualified and experienced practitioner who can provide personalised advice and treatment. Your safety and satisfaction should always be the top priority.
