Lip enhancement treatment using either JUVÉDERM® or RESTYLANE® is a popular non-surgical treatment to boost shape and volume of the lip via the injection of lip filler. As the effects of ageing take hold, lip volume depletes to leave a thinner, flatter appearance. Wrinkles and fine lines may also appear, contributing to a less smooth look, less defined borders and a flattened ‘Cupid’s bow’, creating an overall tired and aged appearance. Lip enhancement can provide a safe and effective non-surgical solution to reverse these symptoms.

Both JUVÉDERM® and RESTYLANE® are FDA approved products with a wide variety of uses in aesthetic procudures. They are both non-animal based and made with hyaluronic acid rather than collagen to plump up the skin. Since the hyaluronic acid these products is created by biosynthesis in a laboratory, patients are not required to take an allergy test before receiving treatment. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Lip injections at Cadogan Cosmetics are very safe but minor side effects include redness, swelling and itching at the injection site and bruising which can last from 2 to 10 days. If you find that you have an uneven result, your practitioner will see you for a treatment review and this can be rectified. If you suffer from cold sores, dermal fillers to lips may not be a good treatment for you.

Dermal Fillers for lips at Cadogan Cosmetics use reputable products such as Juvederm or Restylane which are designed to smooth out lines, wrinkles, and folds, or create more youthful and attractive facial contours by adding volume. When injected by an experienced Cadogan Cosmetics doctor, your lips will look fuller but natural.

Following a thorough consultation with your practitioner, the dermal filler that is selected as being the most appropriate for you is eased into either the lip border or body (or both) using a very fine needle and the procedure itself should take approximately 15 minutes. The product contains an anaesthetic but it may be possible to have a numbing cream applied to the area prior to the treatment if you would prefer. Results can be seen straight away.

At Cadogan Cosmetics we use only the safest hylauronic acid-based dermal fillers which are long lasting but not permanent. The effects will fade gradually but should last between 4 and 13 months depending on which treatment you have had. Following this, we recommend that you come back to us for a top up treatment. The filler will biodegrade in the skin naturally and disappear should you choose not to return for a top up treatment.

Most dermal fillers that we use at Cadogan Cosmetics include an added anaesthetic, which makes the lip enhancement treatment virtually painless as it numbs the skin. If you feel that you would rather come in early for numbing cream application before your dermal fillers treatment, this is also possible.

Lips define a face and are one of the first things a person will notice about your appearance. Lips can become thinner over time, or it may be that you have naturally thin lips. Dermal filler lip enhancement will make your lips bigger and fuller and can reverse a downward turned expression due to ageing. Lip enhancement at Cadogan Cosmetics can also help to fill out the ‘smokers lines’ which appear around the mouth due to smoking and ageing.

Dermal fillers at Cadogan Cosmetics are very safe as we use only hyluaronic acid based fillers which is a substance which occurs naturally in the body and they are long-lasting but semi-permanent. Our practitioners who carry out lip enhancements are healthcare professionals such as doctors, dermatologists and plastic surgeons. Despite this, it is important to discuss any possible side effects or complications of lip injections with your consultant so they can ensure you have the best form of treatment and care.

Before your lip fillers treatment, it is important that you have had a consultation with your doctor to establish what you want and what they recommend for you to see if this treatment is for you. Though many dermal fillers contain anaesthetic, you may choose to apply numbing cream to the area prior to the treatment.

There is no down time required following lip plumping injections but as you might experience some mild redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, or itching after the treatment you may want to bear this is mind before a big event. These effects are completely normal and should clear up in less a fortnight.
