Non-Surgical Lip Enhancement FAQ’s

What is lip filler?

The filler is usually a gel that is injected into the skin in order to add volume to the lips. It can also be used to lift the corners of the mouth to give a more structured look. The gel used is hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance found in the body.

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found throughout the body. It gives volume to the skin.

How does the filler work?

The gel adds volume to the skin. A practitioner injects small amounts of hyaluronic acid directly to create a fuller look. The aim is to contour the lip to the desired level.

What results can be obtained from lip treatments?

The lip line (vermillion border) can be accentuated and the lip can be given more volume. Change of shape can be achieved. However, this must be discussed at consultation prior to the treatment with your practitioner. Rest assured we will not overfill your lips.

What is treatment with lip filler like?

Treatment to enhance the lip is very easy a quick process. Since no pre-test is needed, the treatment can be carried out straight away and takes around 30 minutes from consultation to treatment end. The result is instant.

Do the injections hurt?

Lips are numbed using a topical numbing agent. Local application of lidocaine based cream gives the patient comfort from initial injection. Most hyaluronic acid gels have lidocaine in them, also providing comfort on injection.

Can the lip filler be removed?

The gel is a natural material. It dissolves with time. If you feel insecure about the desired result, it is possible to have the treatment done in gradual stages on different occasions.

Is it safe?

The hyaluronic acid in the filler is almost identical to that already present in the body. It is possible to dissolve the product if there are any serious problems. Immediately after, the treatment site can be slightly swollen and red. This is a normal result of the injection and generally, reduces within a day or two.

Are there any other types of reactions that may occur?

Yes, if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a high risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another cold sore eruption. If you are using aspirin or any other similar medication, you should be aware that these may increase the bruising and bleeding at the injection site.

How long does the effect of the filler last?

Since the filler is a substance very similar to your own skin, the same ongoing processes (such as ageing) that change the structure of your skin will also alter the filler. Eventually, the filler totally disappears from the body. How long the effect of the treatment lasts differently with every individual. It depends on many factors, such as the structure of the skin, lifestyle, age and the degree of expectation by the individual. Most people choose to have a new treatment within a year after the initial treatment (wrinkles and folds) and within half a year after lip treatments.

Lip Enhancement & Fillers Liverpool

When it comes to lip enhancement, clients can choose from surgical and non-surgical procedures, with the aim to increase the fullness of the lips. Here at AK Aesthetics, we offer non-surgical lip filler for those based in Liverpool and surrounding areas.

The lip filler consists of a hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into the skin. It is primarily used to add volume to the lips, but it can also lift the corners of the mouth and create a more defined and structured appearance, contouring your lips to your heart’s desire. There is no need to be concerned about the chemicals used in this procedure as the acid is something that occurs naturally in the body.

As well as adding volume to the lips themselves, the vermillion border, otherwise known as the lip line, can be accentuated, using this type of lip augmentation. We will discuss your specific goals during your consultation before the treatment. The actual process is very fast as you can be in and out the door within thirty minutes, benefiting from instantaneous results. You may experience a normal level of redness and swelling, but this will reduce within a day or two.

Throughout the treatment process your lips will be numbed with a topical numbing agent. This lidocaine-based cream removes the discomfort from the initial injection, and the gel itself usually contains lidocaine, providing additional comfort.

We recommend that you have the treatment completed in gradual stages on a number of occasions if you have any reservations about it. It is also worth noting that the needle punctures can contribute to cold sore eruptions if this is something you generally suffer from, and aspirin and other blood-thinning medication can increase the level of bruising and bleeding at the site of injection.

Most people who begin to get lip filler treatments like to keep them topped up within half a year of the previous treatment as the results fade over time. Exactly how long the lip filler lasts varies from person to person, depending on your age, lifestyle and natural skin structure.
