Have you ever thought of getting a lip augmentation? Of course, you have!

Do you still have unanswered questions like: what fillers do I need to get? Can I return to work after my lip enhancement? Or what is the difference between Juvederm and Teosyal?

Specializing in lip fillers and lip augmentation techniques, we provide the best before and after results for lip augmentation at TheLondonFacialCare.

Both men and women can make excellent candidates for lip enhancement. With a tailored approach needed to suit every individual’s unique anatomy, there is no right or wrong answer in what product or which technique is best for lip augmentation.

I like both Juvederm and Teosyal products creating soft, natural-looking results. Each of them are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely provide the desired results.

My aim is to provide my patients with sensual and juicy lips, whilst still maintaining the look very natural. There is a fine line between fake and natural lips, I offer subtle changes in a few sessions over several appointments, to ensure no drastic alterations to the appearance while it is improved.

I personally love to use Juverdem Volift to immediately add shape to thin or asymmetrical lips. Volift can create instant plump lips that remain soft to the touch. Volift contains short and long chain hyaluronic acid so that it can enhance cross-linking with increasing stiffness. Being a soft product, the results usually last 12 months before the need for re-injection, and my patients absolutely love it!

Volbella is ideal to give a slight and subtle lip enhancement when the patient just needs a little boost on the lips and successfully smooth delicate lip lines. The benefits of one Volbella session will last from four to six months.

Another one of my favorite fillers is also TEOSYAL RHA! Providing a more resilient hyaluronic acid, this dynamic gel has a heightened strength and resilience capacity! RHA fillers are unique, as they mimic the natural hyaluronic acid long chains. RHA fillers have more dynamic properties than other fillers, which is ideal for the mobile area of the face. For lips enhancement, I like to combine the use of RHA 2 and RHA3 to get the best result!

By adapting to your face movements, RHA filler is a very malleable and adaptable product. RHA 2 is mainly used for lip augmentation, as it can merge with the soft tissue very well. Volume is given by treating the bulk area and the edge of the lips. Amazingly, RHA 2 can also be used to solve fine wrinkles on your neck and décolleté.

Whilst RHA 2 is used for a more subtle appearance and natural look, RHA 3 can also be used to give a ‘fuller’ and more ‘pouty’ look. It is all up to the desires of patients, and the extent that they want their lips bigger or not. TEOSYAL RHA results also usually last for 12 months before the need for re-apply it again.

And the question that haunts us all: is lip augmentation painful? With me, I make sure to minimize pain as much as I can for my patients.  A topical numbing cream is applied prior to the filler injections.

Also, I personally prefer the use of micro cannulas over needles, and use them 95 percent of the time with my patients. I use a cannula, a blunt needle to make the process less risky of bruising, with the treatment lasting 30 to 45 minutes. I usually inject 0.5ml to 1ml of filler for an natural look but we can also use up to 2ml of fillers, depending on how full my patients want their lips to be!
The results are immediate.

Some patients might experience swelling for the first couple of days. Your lips will usually settle and the final result is always visible after 2 weeks of having the treatment!
