Lip Filler: What to Expect

It seems everyone from Hollywood A-Listers, Reality Z-Listers, blogger influencers and regular people are getting involved in the Lip Filler craze, craving a plumper and more voluminous lip. Natural enhancement can also be achieved with lip filler, it’s just usually not documented as much as the Kylie Jenner escapade. Here at Evolve Medical, we’ll do our best to meet your desired look.

What is Lip Augmentation?  

Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure used to give you fuller, plumper lips. An injectable dermal filler is used for this. They are injected into the soft tissue of the lip to increase lip volume and size.  

What products are used?  

There are lots of different fillers that may be used in the lips. The most common and safest fillers are products that contain Hyaluronic Acid – this is a natural substance that is found in the body. This is used to increase the volume in your lips. Here at Evolve Medical we favour the Juvederm range of products.  

What will happen at my appointment?  

You will be asked to complete a thorough medical questionnaire and sign a consent form. A full medical consultation will be carried out and our highly experience nurse, Rachel, will discuss the treatment options which are best suited to you. We will apply a local anaesthetic cream to the lips prior to the procedure. Photographs are taken so the results can be compared at a review appointment. The area will be cleaned and the filler injected into the lips. Some discomfort may be felt during the procedure but this will pass quickly.  

How will I look afterwards?  

Lips may appear slightly swollen following treatment, there may also be slight bruising in the area. This will settle over a few days. 

How long do the fillers last? 

Lip fillers may last between 4 and 12 months depending on the product chosen.  

How much will it cost?  

The price for lip filler starts from £180 to £250, depending on the product that is chosen and how much product is used.
