Lip Fillers are gentle injections of soft cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid (HA) such as Juvederm Smile® or Restylane® Kysse. We use the latest restylane as it produces smooth results with a nice lift. Softer fillers are available if you wanting less lift.
Why choose lip filler?
- Corrects asymmetry of lips, side to side or top to bottom
- Reduces fine lines around the lip area
- Gently refills lost volume of lips
What do lip fillers involve?
Before you undergo this medical treatment you will have a full consultation to ensure lip injections are right for you. This will give you the chance to discuss any questions you may have with our experienced doctor, Dr Richard Brighton-Knight. The injections only take a few minutes and all products we contain local anaesthetic so that the areas become numb and maximise your comfort. Additional numbing cream is available and numbing injections for those that wish. There can be swelling and redness after the treatment which can last a few hours, full details of what to expect are discussed with you at your consultation. A review is normally conducted at 2 weeks.
How do lip fillers work?
The filler is placed either in the tissues around the mouth or directly into the lips. This provides a gentle fullness and is adjusted to ensure a natural finish. The filler softens over 2 weeks as it absorbs water. Over time your body naturally breaks down the filler. The usual lasting time is around 6 months. Restlyane Kysse produces a smooth effect whilst providing a lasting lift.
Who will be performing the procedure?
Dr Richard Brighton-Knight is a very experienced aesthetic doctor. His approach is very much less is more for the lips and he may ask you to come back for a repeat visit rather than risk over-filling. This ensures that you get a natural balance to your lips, enhancing your own look.
We are based in Harley Street, London, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire near Coventry West Midlands and in Brighton & Hove, Sussex
