Lip augmentation is a commonly requested procedure at Hampstead Aesthetics.
Our aim is to maintain the natural lip shape and create a plumpness to the lip volume and accentuate the cupids bow. This also improves lip hydration and Shape.
As we age, lips naturally lose volume and plumpness. This is due to the overall decrease in collagen and elastin that occurs as we age. These are the complex proteins in our skin which provide structure, support and elasticity. Our lips get thinner and smaller as we get older.
Not only can strategically placed Dermal Fillers help restore lost volume, they can also be used to redefine and reshape lips. Lip volume is best built up in stages, and it is best that you have smaller volumes of filler added over a period of months to get the desired outcome.
Many dermal filler products are available with the addition of 0.3% lidocaine combined with the hyaluronic acid gel in the syringe. This provides instant relief from pain upon injection and removes the need for a separate nerve block or topical anaesthesia. A topical numbing cream is offered.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT?
Lip fillers are injected directly into your top and bottom lips. We will always begin by administering a conservative amount of filler, building up to a larger amount if required.
We will carry out a full consultation and take your medical history. This is our opportunity to make sure the treatment is suitable, and your opportunity to tell us about what you would like to achieve with your appearance.
We will apply anaesthetic that will numb the whole area to make your treatment far more comfortable.
The filler will be administered through a series of small injections into the lips. There is also a local anaesthetic in the filler, which will help reduce any discomfort during the procedure. A very fine needle is used, and patients report only mild and temporary discomfort.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY APPOINTMENT?
Your treatment will start with an in-depth Medical Consultation with your Doctor.
You will be able to discuss any concerns you may have about the procedure, and they will be able to suggest the most effective treatment strategy plan for your particular concerns.
The risks and benefits of any treatment will be discussed at length. Our primary aim at NewYou is to ensure that you are happy with any treatment you undertake.
