Lip Enhancement procedures are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments at London Real Skin. The procedure involves using Dermal Fillers which contain hyaluronic acid- a natural substance that occurs in the body, to enhance the shape, add subtle volume to the lips, and to correct symmetry.

dermal lip fillers london
As we age, our lips can start to lose fullness and volume, and fine lines and wrinkles can start to appear around the area. Dermal fillers are an effective and safe solution to replace lost volume and to support the softening of lines and wrinkles to restore a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are effective in treating multiple areas and can also be used for contouring and shaping the face, creating a natural looking and subtle ‘plumping effect’ for those patients who lack confidence in certain facial features.
We are highly passionate about helping people achieve body confidence using alternatives to cosmetic surgery. Whether it is shape, definition or volume you seek with your lips, or to correct symmetry, the Lip Enhancement treatment helps you to achieve just that. It is a minimally invasive procedure and can be tailored to your specific needs and goals.

Frequently Asked Questions
During this appointment, your practitioner will carry out and in depth skin analysis to determine what it is you’d like to achieve through the use of dermal filler injections, whether it’s restoration of lost volume and definition, a reduction in wrinkles, or a combination of both. They will also review your medical history and take photographs to monitor the results.
While the risks associated with dermal fillers are minimal, you need to fully disclose your medical history prior to treatment, as certain allergies, skin and neurological conditions, or medications can jeopardize your safety or results. Anti-inflammatory medication (e.g., aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen) or blood thinners need to be stated before commencing, as these increase the chance of bruising.
The amount of product needed for your treatment will be determined by your practitioner and the area treated. Each syringe of Juvederm dermal filler generally contains 1ml or half a ml of product. Your Aesthetic Practitioner will let you know before commencing treatment what quantity will be needed and the cost thereof, for you to achieve your skin goals.
While filler injections, if administered correctly, are very safe procedures, there is however a very small risk of complications related to them. Common side effects of dermal fillers include swelling, slight discomfort, bruising, lumpiness, or unevenness. However, if injected correctly you will see a very nice result with dermal fillers.

- Avoid extreme sun exposure, UV light, freezing temperatures and saunas for 2 weeks after treatment
