At East London Clinic we specialise in anti-wrinkle and dermal filler treatments. One of the most requested dermal filler procedures we offer is lip enhancement. Dermal filler can instantly restore volume and smooth out lines and folds around the mouth and can be used to add volume and definition to the lips.
Treatments are tailor-made to suit your needs and include restoration of balance lost with aging, evening out asymmetries, and enhancing features such as lip projection, cupid’s bow, and the philtrum. Michael also offers the ‘lip flip’ with Botulinum Toxin and his own version of ‘Russian Lips’. Lip enhancement can also be part of overall facial rebalancing which can also include jawline & chin augmentation, cheekbone augmentation, and non-surgical rhinoplasty to change the shape and smooth out irregularities in the nose.
Lip fillers can help even out the symmetry of the lips, lift out some of the lines that can appear with aging, and add back the volume which can disappear over time, especially within the top lip. The results – a more youthful and fuller lip shape.
Also, the results can be as subtle or as pronounced as you like and our practitioners will discuss this with you during your consultation. What we notice most about our lip filler patients is that it has the ability to help boost your self-confidence, immediately.
Lip filler is temporary, although it is fairly long-lasting and can be easily topped up. We would expect the lip filler to last 6-12 months depending on the client and the product.
An anaesthetic numbing cream will be applied to the area ahead of injecting. This will minimise discomfort. However, the filler itself also contains lidocaine which will optimise comfort levels throughout. Additionally, as our practitioners have vast experience in injecting dermal filler, his injection technique will also limit discomfort.
This is between you and your practitioner, and they will advise you during your consultation. Every patient is different, and the results can be as subtle or as pronounced as you like. Lip filler for the first time can show amazing results around 0.5-1ml, some patients prefer more volume and others may also use Botox around the mouth to relax the muscles. Typically, most clients will opt for 1ml of dermal filler for their lips.
Our lip filler at East London Clinic is £230/ml. Then £100/ml after that.
As with all injections, it is possible that some slight swelling or bruising will occur for 2-3 days. We ask that you try to refrain from touching your lips or applying cream or lipstick directly after the procedure. That being said, as treatments go, there is very little downtime, and after 12 hours makeup and lipstick can be applied.
Dr. Michael Aicken has been using hyaluronic acid gel (dermal filler) to enhance patients’ features for over 15 years. He has taught his own technique to thousands of trainees from around the world.
