What you need to know before getting your lips enhanced with filler at Thérapie Clinic

At Thérapie Clinic, we believe that true beauty comes from within; a result of being healthy and confident; taking the time to nurture your body, your skin, yourself. We take an integrated approach to beauty, helping our clients discover the best version of themselves.

Our highly trained therapists apply this ethos when carrying out all treatments at Thérapie Clinic, like our signature lip fillers. As the appeal of lip enhancement showing no sign of waning, here’s everything you should know before booking in for your consultation …

Lip fillers are long-lasting, but not permanent.
Lip enhancement – also know as lip augmentation – is an aesthetic procedure designed to give you fuller, plumper lips. A dermal filler, a naturally occurring sugar found within the skin called hyaluronic acid, is injected with a very fine needle into the lips. The results are lips that are more contoured, more enhanced. Dermal fillers can both enhance a younger lip and volumise the ageing lip.

One of the huge benefits of this treatment is that the results are long lasting but not permanent. Your lips can be altered over time in order to maintain the desired appearance. On average each treatment lasts 6 months. Duration depends on many factors, such as the individual’s skin type, lifestyle and age. After the initial treatment, follow-up sessions are normally recommended around every 6 to 12 months depending on the individual and the treatment. Your doctor will give you more information during your consultation.

How it will feel
At Thérapie Clinic patient care is always to the forefront of all of our procedures and we will ensure that your treatment is as comfortable as possible. Our lip fillers contain a local anaesthetic however; during the procedure itself clients may experience some mild discomfort. This is only temporary, and your doctor will advise you on how to minimalize this discomfort.

You’ll be in and out in a flash
The whole thing was done and dusted in around ten minutes or so. After the treatment some common injection-related reactions might occur, such as swelling, redness, pain, itching, discoloration and tenderness at the injection site. These typically resolve spontaneously within 2 to 10 days. The use of anti-inflammatory drugs or aspirin will almost always cause bleeding or increased bruising at the injection site. No exercise except for walking for 24 hours after the procedure. Your doctor will advise you fully of post-treatment advice at your consultation.

What will they look like after?
This is obviously going to depend person-to-person, but you can expect to see an immediate difference in volume and shape. As the swelling goes down – and provided you follow your doctor’s post-treatment instructions – you’ll be left with natural-looking lips to complement your smile.
