In order to reassure and give you as much information about our lip fillers and lip enhancement treatment, we've put together the most common questions from patients below. If in doubt, feel free to book a free consultation with one of our patient care co-ordinators who will take you through the all your questions.
Q. What is the lip filler solution made of?
A: All of our lip filler solution is made from hyaluronic acid.
Q. Is lip enhancement safe?
A: Hyaluronic acid is a safe and natural product. While we always recommend going through a full consultation process with us beforehand, lip enhancement is generally a very safe treatment.
Q. Will my lips look noticably different?
A: This is dependent on the look you want to achieve. For example, some of our patients are looking for a subtle results if they already have moderately full lips, whereas some patients with very thin lips ask for a more fuller lip shape. The practitioner will talk the patient through their expectations and then provide their recommendations.
Q. Who will perform the procedure?
A: At Transform, all of our injectible treatments are administered by either a nurse or a doctor only.
Q. How long does the lip treatment take?
A: Typical lip treatments usually take less than an hour. The treatment itself only takes 15 minutes, but we also include a consultation with the practitioner and time for the topical numbing cream to work to make the treatment more comfortable.
Q. Does the treatment hurt?
A: For most patients, it can be uncomfortable but definitely bearable. We offer all patients a topical numbing cream to make it more comfortable. The Juvederm range of lip fillers that we use already come with an anaesthetic in them (lidocaine) which combats any pain.
Q. How long do lip fillers last?
A: Lip fillers can last up to 6 months. This does however depend on the type of product used, how much is injected and the patient's lifestyle.
Q. Are there any side effects?
A: We always make it clear during consultation that patients should expect a certain level of swelling and bruising, though this is usually minor and does depend on the patient's propensity to bruise.
