When it comes to beauty treatments, lots of our clients here at our Mayfair aesthetic clinic are looking for a quick fix – something that can instantly make a difference, with little downtime. Lip fillers tick all the boxes and more. In this post, we’ll break down this popular procedure and share our secrets for helping boost your results and care for your pout following treatment.
Lip fillers 101
First up: a bit of background. Lip injections might have had a surge in popularity in recent years, thanks to Kylie Jenner, but they’ve got a lot more history to them. It’s thought they were invented in the sixties, though weren’t particularly safe back then – nowadays, they have an excellent track record and if you don’t like the results, not only are they non-permanent, but if you’ve had hyaluronic acid fillers – like the ones on offer at our Mayfair aesthetic clinic – you may even be able to reverse the effects.
Prepping for your new pout
Are you on the fence about lip injections? Then we can help. We offer a consultation to go through the ins and outs of treatment and help answer your burning lip filler questions. If you’re set on getting lip injections, then prepare for your treatment by keeping your lips sun-safe with a lipstick or balm containing SPF, and by using a good quality moisturiser.
Acing your aftercare
Avoid alcohol, exercise and both sun and heat exposure after having lip fillers. While it’s a good idea to always use sun protection on your lips and face, you’ll be able to exercise again as normal in a few days following treatment. While cutting down/out on alcohol can have lots of positive health benefits, you won’t need to avoid alcohol after a few days, either.
When you’ve seen fantastic results with lip fillers, you want to prolong them. When the effects start to wear off, we may be able to perform a top-up to boost your pout back up. Just get in touch and we’ll arrange a consultation.
Lips you’ll love
Symmetry? Check. Volume? Check. Definition? Check. Lip injections can totally transform your looks – and last long, too, with results typically lasting from 6-18 months. If you’ve decided lip fillers are right for you, don’t hesitate to book in for treatment with us today at our Mayfair aesthetic clinic.
