With us approaching the New Year, there’s never been a better time to think about a New You. At Aesthetic Medispa, your Essex skin clinic, we know that even the smallest change can make the biggest difference to your appearance and confidence – which is why we love lip fillers. Many people think lip fillers are painful or invasive, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In reality, this type of lip enhancement is a quick process that’s more often relaxing than it is uncomfortable – and it’s becoming a favoured alternative to high-risk, permanent plastic surgery. In this post, we’ll outline all the key facts you need to know about lip enhancement here at our Essex skin clinic.
We know that our clients want reliable results that last. Lip enhancement with dermal fillers are a great choice for those wanting to put a bit of pep in their pout that has longevity, without the commitment that surgery brings. When you visit us at our skin clinic here in Essex, you could enjoy lip enhancement results for up to 18 months.
Everyone’s pain threshold is different – what might feel like a scratch to one person could be extremely uncomfortable for another, however most patients find lip fillers to be a slight pinch that is very quick and bearable, and certainly less painful than surgery. We always prioritise our clients’ comfort, which is why we use special techniques when injecting lip fillers, to keep swelling and redness to a minimum after your lip filler treatment.
Did you know?: Lip fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found naturally occurring in our bodies.
With the procedure sometimes taking as little as 15 minutes, and no downtime expected, it’s no wonder that so many of our clients pop in on their lunch break. Following your lip fillers, there’s no reason you can’t return to work immediately – and you’ll even be able to drive. Our team are so dedicated, we can even offer post-treatment application of mineral make-up, if required.
Our lip fillers here in Essex can target so many concerns – lines and wrinkles around the mouth; loss of volume in the lips; lack of shape and definition; even plumpness and hydration. It’s no surprise we’re highly renowned in and around Essex for lip fillers and more.
As with any aesthetic procedure, you’ll need to carefully follow aftercare advice post-lip enhancement – which can help prevent infection, swelling and complications. This includes:
- Using a cold pack to handle swelling
- Taking antiviral medication, if you suffer from cold sores
- Avoiding extreme heat (sun beds, saunas etc) for around 2 weeks
