NConsidering A Lip Enhancement? We Answer Some Of Your Frequently Asked Questions.
What Is A Lip Filler
A lip filler is a soft, injectable material that sits underneath the skin. The gel in the filler supports and shapes the tissues of the lips. Lip enhancement creates volume and defines the shape of your mouth.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hylauronic acid is a gel-like water molecule that the body produces naturally. For instance, it is in high concentrations around the eyes and joints. It will gradually dissolve into the body.
Juvederm and Restylane are both common forms of hyaluronic acid for lip enhancement.
What Is The Price Of Lip Fillers In the UK?
UK lip fillers price can vary. The price depends on location, reputation and the type of procedure. For example, city centre clinics may charge more than an outlying practice. Lip filler prices vary from £150 to £300. The average cost is around £200. It is important to remember that this is the cost per session. You may need several future appointments to maintain your lip plumpness and definition.
Is a Lip Enhancement Temporary?
The majority of lip enhancements are temporary. For example, hyaluronic acid lasts approximately 4-8 months which is why it is steadily replacing collagen as the most popular injectable. Collagen only lasts around 3-6 months.
There are several types of lip filler that last up to 2 years, however they are rare in professional clinics. This is because the long term risks are unknown as well as the risk of infection being higher.
As your lip enhancement is temporary, you may need to book future appointments to maintain your lip volume and definition.
