Lip Augmentation in Hale, Cheshire

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. 

Katie treats patients across South Manchester and Cheshire, including Altrincham, Wilmslow, Hale, Ashley, Morley Green, Knutsford, Ollerton, Dunham Massey, Little Bollington, Bowdon and the surrounding areas.

Hyaluronic acid is a super-hydrating ingredient which can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, keeping lips plump and beautiful. Hyaluronic fillers are the most popular type of fillers, as they are malleable and biodegradable, making them much safer to use than other filler materials when injected by a trained professional. Hyaluronic fillers are naturally dissolved by the body over time, whereas other filler materials have to be removed surgically. Because they are so soft and moldable, hyaluronic fillers are also the most flexible fillers available, making it easy for Katie to tailor your lip filler procedure to you.

Who is Suitable for Lip Augmentation?

Collagen is a natural substance produced by the body that helps to give our skin structure and volume. As we age, collagen production slows. This can lead to a thinning of the lips, and also causes skin to sag, pulling the corners of the mouth down, creating a sad and aged appearance. Lip fillers help to restore volume lost by the slowing of collagen production, leaving you with softer, plumper lips, and a more youthful appearance.

Filler can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the lips and mouth.

Katie’s extensive medical knowledge and experience is proven by her expertise in correcting misshapen or thin lips. By adding filler to specific parts of the lips, volume is intensified, which helps to create that luscious look we know that you’re after.

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 (Vertical lines around the centre of the top lip)
  • Peri-oral lines (Vertical lines that appear around the edges of the top and bottom lip)

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. During this consultation, Katie will go through your options and talk you through the procedure and processes that will take place on the day of your treatment. She will work with you to understand what you want to achieve from your lip filler treatment, while ensuring that every treatment looks subtle and natural, so no-one can tell that you’ve had work done.

Katie Alex’s dermal fillers of choice are Juvederm’s premium VYCROSS® range from Allergan. VYCROSS® fillers contain a smoother gel for optimum comfort and precision placement, reducing swelling and bruising. They are a very flexible brand of filler, making it easy to shape and mould once it has been injected, ensuring your lips look  perfect. They also contain lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, to improve comfort. The effects of VYCROSS® fillers can last up to 6 months longer than standard dermal fillers.

First, a topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the area to maximise comfort, however, slight smarting or stinging is still common. The augmentation process with Katie Alex is gradual and relaxed, and Katie makes a point of communicating openly with all of her clients to ensure the treatment is a success. Throughout the process, she 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 and intense exercise, as well as drinking 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, as well as sun exposure for 24 hours.

Apart from this, lip filler procedures have very little downtime, and you will be able to see results instantly. A lip filler treatment from Katie Alex Aesthetics generally lasts  around 12-18 months, after which time top up treatments are recommended to maintain your results.
