Beautiful heart-shaped lips

Lip filler treatment has become one of the most popular applications for modern dermal fillers. And no wonder when they can create fuller, balanced upper and lower lips with enhanced definition and shape – all of which combine to create a beautiful, more sensuous smile. They can also give you a more youthful look, removing fine lines around the mouth and erasing so-called “smoker’s lines”.

What aftercare should be followed after treatment?

Lip fillers are very safe and side effects are uncommon, but minor side effects include redness, swelling and itching at the injection site and bruising which can last from 2 to 10 days. If you find that you are unhappy with the result, your practitioner will see you for a treatment review and this can be rectified. If you suffer from cold sores, dermal fillers to lips may not be a good treatment for you.

Are the injections painful?

A numbing cream is applied to the lips first to ensure the treatment is as comfortable as possible.

How long does the lip enhancement last?

Treatment results are instant and last for up to 4 to 6 months.  Repeat treatments can be done and have no long-term effect on the lips. Lips will return to their original state when all material has been dissolved.

Frequently asked questions:

How long does Azzalure last for?

Results last from three to six months depending on the patient. Visible results can be seen in as little as a few days, with the full effects developing in approximately two weeks.

What type of person is Azzalure best for?

Azzalure treatments are suitable for men and women who want to achieve fresher, healthier looking skin. The best results are achieved by injecting areas of facial lines particularly the frown, forehead and side of the eyes. The treatment doesn’t prevent facial expressions but helps patients to look less tired, less stressed and ultimately younger. Treatment should be stopped while patients are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Are the injections painful?

The simple answer is NO, just a slight pin-prick as the needle goes in. A numbing cream is applied to the skin first to ensure the treatment is as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

Are Azzalure cosmetic injections safe?

Azzalure is the a treatment name for Botulinum toxin type A injections which have a proven safety record having been used medically for over 40 years and in the cosmetic industry for over 20 years.  Azzalure is also now used for a range of other medical conditions such as migraines and certain conditions in the eye and bladder.

To ensure you receive the safest experience possible, Azzalure treatment should only be carried out by a highly skilled qualified medical professional who uses quality medical grade products.

Are there any potential side effects from Azzalure I should be aware of?

Side effects – if the injections are properly administered – are extremely rare. Our patients occasionally report a small bruise at the injection site that normally fades after a few days. Headaches for the first 24 hours can also occur in 5-10% of patients, which can be treated with paracetamol.

Frequently asked questions:

What is Hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the body and is used for the transfer of essential nutrients from the blood stream to the skin cells.  Once injected, the gel filler supports the facial structures and tissues that may have lost elasticity or volume.  It helps to bring water to the surface of the skin thus keeping the skin supple and fresh looking.

What are the benefits of dermal filler?

Dermal fillers provide an extremely effective and simple way to reduce the appearance of deeper creases and wrinkles, add volume, contour and smooth the skin giving it a more youthful appearance. Dermal filler can give a natural looking result that does not affect facial expression.

What does dermal filler treatment involve?

During

Dermal filler is injected into the skin in small amounts using a very fine needle. The treated areas are numbed with local anaesthetic or a cream beforehand to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible.

The treatment is quick, typically taking about 30 minutes. Treatment with dermal fillers does not affect facial expression and the benefits can normally be seen instantly.

After

After a treatment reactions will depend on the individual but are generally mild and usually disappear within one to two days.  These may include slight redness, swelling or bruising.

Dermal filler products naturally disappear in the body. To ensure an optimal and long lasting result, a top-up treatment is recommended 6-12 months after your initial treatment.

Microneedling

Microneedling works by generating new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Medical Microneedling is a rejuvenating procedure also used to treat various scars (including acne scars), stretch marks, wrinkles, and large pores. The treatment utilises the skin’s ability to heal itself, in turn triggering the production of new collagen.

Microneedling procedure

Microneedling can be used to:

  • Stimulate collagen production
  • Improve skin texture
  • Reduce fine-lines and wrinkles
  • Improve scarring, such as acne and chicken-pox scarring
  • Smooth and firm the skin
  • Treat pigmentations, such as sun damage
BOOK A CONSULTATION

Frequently asked questions:

How does Microneedling work?

Collagen is a protein that gives our skin its structure, working like a netting to hold skin cells together. It also gives skin a smooth and youthful appearance. As we age, collagen starts to breakdown which can lead to fine lines and wrinkles.

As the skin begins to repair itself, it turbo-charges the body’s natural ability to produce collagen. The tiny needles used in the procedure create microscopic channels in the dermis that stimulate that healing process.

The procedure improves skin texture, reduces the appearance of scars and creates a more youthful tone. It’s no surprise that this treatment has been hailed as a non-invasive way to achieve youthful, dewy looking skin.

How do I know if this treatment is suitable for me?

If you suffer from undesirable skin conditions such as scarring, wrinkles or hyperpigmentation you may be a suitable candidate for Microneedling therapy. The treatment work in harmony with the skin, making it suitable for all skin types.

What does the procedure involve?

Your skin will be cleansed and prepared for treatment prior to a topical anaesthetic cream being applied to numb the treatment area in advance of your procedure.  The treatment will be carried out using a Dermaroller.  Treatment generally takes 30 minutes, in addition to the time required for the topical anaesthetic to work.  Three treatment sessions are recommended to achieve desired results.

What should I expect after treatment?

There is very little down time, although expect your skin to look and feel mildly sunburnt for about 24 hours after the treatment. It will also start to flake after a day or two as the skin cells slough off. This is a normal reaction. Improved skin appearance begins to occur almost immediately and continues for 4 to 6 weeks. For best results, Microneedling can be repeated as frequently as every 6 weeks, or as infrequently as 2-3 times a year, depending on your concerns. You should be able to resume normal activities immediately following your treatment session.

Are there any side effects?

It varies by patient, but immediate side effects include redness, flaking, and mild irritation on the treated areas. These aren’t anything to worry about and will subside within 24-72 hours. It may be difficult to apply makeup over treated skin whilst it is flaking; similar to skin peeling after sunburn. Do not exfoliate as this will irritate the skin.
