WHAT IS A LIP FILLER?
Hylaronic Acid is a natural substance found within the body, which diminishes as we age. In replacing it, it not only does it give volume and structure to the face, it also attracts water to it, giving your skin a healthy glow. Even more, is that by using temporary lip fillers which last 6 months, you have long lasting results and remain in control of how you look. We don’t use any permanent lip fillers, as they only then to give this over the top ‘trout pout’ that is.
WHEN CAN I TOP UP MY LIP FILLER ?
2 -4 weeks after treatment.
WILL IT HURT?
There will be some mild discomfort felt. A numbing cream is applied to the lips until they are completely numb. Further to this all the high quality advanced dermal fillers we use have lidocaine in them which helps to further reduce any pain experienced.
