One of the most popular cosmetic procedures on the market are lip fillers and, if you are reading this, then the chances are you have already begun to consider how this treatment can enhance your life and let you look fabulous. As full, plump lips are becoming increasingly desirable with many celebrities sporting the look, this handy article is going to tell you all you need to know about this fantastic treatment and how it can change your life.

What is the procedure?

A lip filler treatment is carried out by a medical professional using the highest quality fillers on the market at Luxe Skin.

The dermal filler used is a gel-like substance that contains hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid is what helps your skin to retain moisture and elasticity naturally, giving a youthful appearance. By adding more of this acid through a lip augmentation filler, your skin will be able to retain more hydration giving a plump, full appearance to your skin.

When specifically looking at lip fillers, a huge benefit of a hyaluronic dermal filler is that it can help to contour and enhance the appearance of your lips by adding volume. The filler can increase the size of your lips, make your lips more defined, correct asymmetry, and change their shape. The great thing about this procedure as well is that, if you find that you have gone too big, the treatment is easily reversible and can be redone until it suits the look you are after.

Are there any side effects?

In the first two weeks after your procedure, you may experience some swelling and/or bruising around the lips, but this is something that is completely normal and will go down very quickly.

The other main side effect to look out for is the Tyndall effect. This is when the filler rises to the surface of your lips and can sometimes give off a blueish hue in the light. This can be easily fixed by having another injection to dissolve the filler and then having the procedure redone.

What happens after the procedure?

Directly after the procedure, you should allow for around two weeks for any swelling or bruising to go down. During this time, the filler will also attach itself to the tissue of your lips and begin to expand, giving you the plump and full look that you have been hoping for.

At Luxe Skin, the premium brand of lip filler, Juvederm lips, is used to ensure that your filler integrates with your natural features seamlessly.

A lip filler will typically last between six to nine months, depending on how quickly your body will break down the filler.

What is the cost?

The all-important answer to this question is actually much less than you might think. The quality treatment and premium filler used at Luxe Skin in Glasgow will cost:

  • £200 for 0.5ml
  • £375 for 1ml
  • £650 for 2ml

Consider this treatment as an investment into yourself and your happiness, because the way you look will inform how positively you view yourself.

“I am really happy”

I used to go to a different clinic which was much cheaper but I was never satisfied with the results. I always felt that the treatment was rushed. I wanted to try someone else and went to Doctor Q. He really listened to me and advised me on treatments that met my needs. I had Botox to 3 areas and filler around the mouth and nose. He is always available by phone or email for advice. I am really happy with the results.
