Lip Augmentation in Bowdon, Altrincham

What is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation, also known as lip fillers, are a popular treatment with both men and women. By injecting small amounts of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid into the lips, Katie Alex can rectify a wide range of lip concerns.

Who is Suitable for Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation can be used to effectively treat:

  • Thin lips
  • Asymmetrical / uneven lips
  • Poorly defined lip border and philtrum
  • Inverted lips
  • Downturned / sad mouth
  • Smokers lines
  • Peri-oral lines

What Does Lip Augmentation Involve?

Every lip filler procedure with Katie Alex will be preceded by a separate consultation session, giving you time to decide if it is the right course of action for you.

The lip augmentation process itself is a relatively straightforward procedure, and usually takes around 30 minutes from consent to completion of the treatment and aftercare advice.

First, a topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the area to maximise comfort, however, slight smarting is still common. The augmentation process with Katie Alex is gradual and relaxed, and Katie will pause regularly, ensuring your comfort and analysing your lips to ensure you get beautiful, natural looking results.

Following the procedure, you may experience some slight swelling and light bruising, which is completely normal with a lip augmentation procedure, and will quickly subside. However, you should avoid touching the area, intense exercise, alcohol, coffee and other hot drinks for 24 hours, to lessen the chances of bleeding, bruising and swelling, and to protect the lips. You should also avoid wearing makeup on the lips and around the mouth and sun exposure for 24 hours.
