Prior to carrying out lip enhancement, a local anesthetic cream is applied to the lips 20 minutes before. This allows the area requiring treatment to be adequately numbed to allow the injection of the hyaluronic acid based dermal filler to be injected to the border and body of the lips.
At Skin Made Perfect a local anesthetic cream is always applied prior to undergoing lip enhancement. Additionally, all hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers used at SMP clinic contain an anesthetic within the product, thus reducing any discomfort further.
At Skin Made Perfect our Doctor will ensure the procedure will be done following a thorough assessment of your facial structure. The procedure itself takes approximately 15 minutes.
Due to the sensitivity of the lips, they can swell following treatment and this can sometimes last for up to 7-14 days. A clean cool pack can be applied to the lips to soothe the area and reduce the swelling. Following lip enhancement, recovery is often very mild and patients are usually able to resume their normal schedule immediately afterwards.
Following treatment, the results will last between 6 to 9 months however to maintain the desired results repeated treatments would be required.
