Dermal fillers for the lips

Lip augmentation is one of the most popular non-surgical procedures in the UK and with exposure in the media and with celebrities and stars undertaking this procedure, popularity has soared. However, some TV and film personalities may be taking things a step too far and run the risk of looking unnatural and sporting that ‘trout pout’ we all hear about. This occurs when the lips have been over-filled or an inappropriate product of technique has been used.

Dr. Anita Dhunna believes that ‘less is more’ when it comes to lip augmentation and from her clinics in Harley Street, South Woodford and Bishops Stortford offers natural, soft results, for those wishing to enhance or improve the appearance of their lips.

Why get lip fillers?

There are many reasons that you may be considering lip augmentation with dermal fillers. You may be experiencing the signs of natural ageing and your lips may not be as full and plump as they used to be. If you are a smoker, you may find that tiny lines and wrinkles form around the vermillion border (the outer part of your lips) and your lipstick may tend to ‘bleed out’ via these tiny lines.

You may have a nice lip shape but wish to add some volume to the body of the lips, or you may have slightly asymmetrical lips and would like to balance out any unevenness. These can all be addressed with injectable dermal fillers and Dr. Anita Dhunna is highly experienced and fully qualified to administer this treatment to bring you the most pleasing results possible from her multiple clinics in South Woodford, London’s prestigious Harley Street and Bishops Stortford in Essex. As Dr. Anita Dhunna offers her bespoke services in a range of locations, this ensures that choosing the right doctor for your lip treatment with dermal fillers is a simple and easy one.

Dermal fillers for the lips – Visit an expert

Expertise is vital when it comes to non-surgical procedures and this is none so true as with the application of dermal fillers, as is using the most appropriate, safe and proven products for this most delicate area.

Through her years in aesthetic practice, Dr. Anita Dhunna has come to rely on and trust the Allergan Juvaderm range of hyaluronic acid lip fillers. Allergan Juvaderm products are highly recognised, trusted, approved and safe temporary hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. Their lip range offers various viscosities so that Dr. Anita Dhunna can use the most effective product in the Juvaderm range for your individual concern, whether you are seeking a slight improvement or a more robust product for enhanced volume and longevity.

The benefit of the Juvaderm range of dermal fillers is that they contain Lidocaine, an anaesthetic within the product; making the treatment far more comfortable than it used to be.

Your Treatment

Deciding on whether you are suitable for dermal fillers for lip augmentation is a simple process and requires a no obligation consultation with Dr. Anita Dhunna, so that she can discuss your concerns, examine your lips, facial area and skin quality and check your medical history as well as your current general health. Once she has approved your suitability for the treatment, you will be invited back to one of her London (Harley Street) or Essex-based (South Woodford and Bishops Stortford) clinics to go ahead with the procedure.

The process takes around 30 minutes and if you are particularly sensitive, Dr. Anita Dhunna may offer additional topical anaesthetic to make you as comfortable as possible. She will use either a needle or cannula to inject small amounts of the chosen Juvaderm product into specific areas of the lips. Her technique will depend on your individual concern and your desired results. After the treatment, you may experience some swelling and bruising but this is completely natural and will subside in a day or so. You might want to use an ice pack following the treatment to relieve any swelling or tenderness when the anaesthetic wears off.

Your Results

Results can be seen immediately and in a couple of days, your lips will settle and any swelling will disappear. If you would like to have a top up treatment you may do this after two weeks, when the lips have softened and show the true results from the initial procedure.

Due to the evolution of products and techniques with dermal fillers for the lips, results can last much longer than before and in many cases, up to 12 months following treatment.

Dermal fillers for the lips can bring a renewed beauty and youth to the face. They can balance out imperfections and improve the quality and tone of the skin, leaving you with renewed confidence and a stunning facial appearance.
