FAQ’s About Our Lip Filler Treatments in Glasgow
What are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are medical products containing Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which are injected with the intention to either: a) enhance / give additional volume in younger people, or b) restore volume that has been lost in older people. There are many benefits to getting lip fillers and using Hyaluronic Acid (HA) as you will have full control over lip volume and the amount of substance injected. Furthermore, it’s also proven to cause much less bruising and swelling when compared to other dermal fillers used at other practices.
Why do People have Lip Fillers?
Is it painful to have lip fillers?
How does Ever Clinic administer lip fillers?
We always focus on the patient perspective. To start, we do a health assessment to make sure it is medically appropriate to consider a treatment (there are some medical issues which would make us advise against a treatment). Then we guide the patient regarding the best treatment approach – this will include guidance on volume requested. There are many different techniques and many different products, so we have a discussion with the patient and agree on the best option for any given individual.
Are there any side effects to having lip fillers?
We counsel patients to expect temporary numbness from the anaesthetic as well as swelling which may last up to a few days. There is also, of course, the possibility of bruising – this may be less if a cannula (long, flexible, blunt needle) technique is used. Any patient who has ever had cold-sores must be given a prescription for tablets to prevent a cold-sore outbreak.
- rarely, filler can be injected into a blood vessel (this must be managed urgently by the clinician)
Are lip fillers permanent?
Although lip fillers can produce some outstanding an instantaneous results, it’s important to note that lip fillers are NOT permanent. The longevity of lip fillers vary from patient to patient but on average they last between 9 and 18 months. Factors such as patient metabolism and the properties of the product injected will contribute towards how long your lip fillers will last for. Before your treatment, our practitioners will go through the full consultation process to make you fully aware of all side effects, risks and how long you can expect your lip fillers to last for.
How long do lips take to settle down once they have been filled?
Lips usually settle within 48 hours. It can be much more quickly than that but occasionally swelling can persist for a few days. The lip filler procedure is minimally invasive but you may suffer from minor tenderness and bruising after the procedure. This is completely normal and our practitioners will offer expert aftercare instructions so you can best look after your lip and well-being. Typical aftercare instruction we will share include:
- Avoiding strenuous exercise for 24-48 hours – we recommend avoiding exercise for at least two days after treatment as elevated blood pressure may make swelling or bruising worse.
- Stay hydrated – one of our more simple but important tips is simply to stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day will help your body to heal after treatment.
- Avoid high temperatures rooms – Ever Clinic recommend avoiding high temperature rooms such as saunas and steam rooms. High heat can increase swelling and we strongly advise to avoid for up to 48 hours after treatment.
What happens if I’m not happy with my lips once they’ve been filled?
The treatments we provide for lip fillers in Glasgow are usually done using Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which can be dissolved. In the early stages, it can even be physically removed. And of course, additional volume may provide the result the patient wishes. Thankfully most patients are happy with their result and see their treatment as a journey where adjustments take place once or twice per year.
Are lip enhancements the same as having lip fillers?
Will my smokers lines disappear if I have my lips filled?
It is true that smokers lines tend to soften by treating the lips. But actually smokers lines are caused, in part, by damaged skin and overactive muscles, so full treatment may include other options like using tiny doses of ‘Botox’ and also treatments to improve the skin. As we typically used Hyalurnoic acid for lip fillers, it can make an impact and is one of the most common choices for reducing the visibility of smokers lines. However, for full impact, we recommend looking into alternate aesthetic treatments where this is the specific focus.
Do I need to have both lips filled?
An assessment will guide what treatment is required for the desired result. We sometimes get asked to just fill the top lip. This can be very unnatural, especially ‘side-on’, and we will advise you on how to get the most beautiful result. This has been established over many centuries with formulas dating back to Leonardo DaVinci and before. We may politely refuse to provide a treatment we believe is not going to provide a beautiful result.
What is the most popular area of the lips to get filled and what different results can I expect?
It is difficult to generalise because there are a variety of lip shapes. It is usually recommended to enhance the shape of the individual patient’s lips rather than trying to change them. Ultimately, we can either define the lips, or volumise them. The upper lip is all about the shape and beautification of the ‘cupid’s bow’ is key. The lower lip should be bigger (in Europeans) and the outline shouldn’t be as sharp as the ‘white roll’ of the upper lip. When treating lips, it really helps to have an artistic eye and ensure the result is in harmony with the rest of the face.
If I get coldsores, can I still have my lips filled?
What happens if I decide to stop having fillers? Will my lips go back to how they were originally?
Lip filler volume will gradually fade away over many months as the HA is broken down. Without maintaining the volume enhancement, the lips will, of course, slowly return to their original size. As previously mentioned, lip fillers last for anywhere between 9-18 months before fresh treatment is needed to maintain and restore volume in the lips. If you’re looking for perfectly shaped lips with volume restored, it’s important to follow up with further lip filler procedures once the hyaluronic acid has broken down.
Are there any risks involved in having lip fillers?
Any medical treatment has some risks. By seeing a trained clinician (Doctor, Dentist or Nurse), your individual risk will be assessed and discussed as with any treatment. This is where the informed consent comes in as it is critical that, as a patient, you understand the risks involved. The majority of procedures have no complications, but when things do go wrong, it is essential to be in the hands of someone who can recognise and then treat the issue. Hyaluronic Acid (HA), as noted above, can be dissolved and this makes the treatment we offer for lip fillers in Glasgow a much safer procedure.
Do lip fillers have an immediate effect?
Lip fillers provide an immediate volume enhancement. Treatment is associated with an element of trauma and swelling which is usually mild, but sometimes a bit scary. Usually within 24-48 hours, the full result is seen. However, you should be aware that it can take up to four weeks for the filler to completely settle and achieve final results. One of the reasons lip fillers are so popular is due to the fact they provide fast results that patients can feel proud and confident about.
How long do the results last for?
Results vary depending on the product used and how quickly it is broken down. Some people do find that it breaks down more quickly and, for these patients, there is little that the doctor or nurse can do other than repeat the treatment a bit more frequently. Over the last few years, product development has given us options that do tend to last longer but we usually advise that patients don’t expect longer than 6 months form a treatment.
Is there anyway of making them last longer?
How often will I need more treatment?
Will my lips still be sensitive?
Lips are always sensitive and people don’t really get used to having treatment. But when patients have seen the benefit of previous treatment, they’re usually more than happy to have further treatments. Lip fillers are generally a pain free treatment which only result in mild side effects experienced such as lumpiness, bruising and tenderness. Most patients will be side effect free and will be more than happy with the results that will become evident pretty quickly. All mild side effects and sensitivity shouldn’t last longer for any longer than 24-48 hours.
What are the chance of my lip fillers going wrong?
It is very difficult to give a risk for this. It depends on the knowledge and training of the person administering the treatment. And the health of the patient, whether they take blood-thinning medication.. Correct assessment, selection, procedures and product makes it, overall, a very safe procedure. Here at Ever Clinic, we’re highly professional and follow the latest industry-standards and guidelines when it comes to lip fillers in Glasgow at our practice. All our practitioners are medically qualified with decades of experience in the field.
Does it need to be a doctor to fill my lips?
What’s the best filler to use?
There is no such thing as THE BEST FILLER. When seeking lip fillers in Glasgow, there are many choices and many excellent ones. The best option is the one that your clinician feels most comfortable using and had good results from. Ever Clinic use hyaluronic acid fillers as we’ve found this provides the best results for our patients who are looking to have lip fillers done. This filler is light, not to firm and can be dissolved if required.
Why do you have different products listed? Can you explain which ones you use and for what?
What are the differences between each product?
- They may or may not be made with Hyaluronic Acid (HA) – WE ONLY STOCK HA
- They may or may not contain lidocaine (numbing agent) – WE RECOMMEND USING ONE THAT DOES
- They vary in concentration which makes a filler ‘softer’ or ‘firmer’ – FIRMER FILLERS WILL VOLUMISE MORE BUT CAN FEEL MORE LUMPY
