Frequently asked questions

What are upper lip lines?

Lip lines are small vertical creases that appear above and below our lips – we notice them more above our lips. They become more prominent as we get older.

What causes upper lip lines?

Upper lips lines are created as we age. The muscles around our mouth are constantly moving as we talk, smile and eat. As we age the skin around our mouth gets thinner due to loss of collagen and therefore it creases much easier.

What treatments are available?

There are several treatments available to improve the appearance of upper lip lines.
Dermal fillers can be used to fill the lip lines which gives an immediate improvement. The result will still look very natural.

For those not wanting dermal filler, skin boosters can be used to hydrate the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin which makes the skin thicker and stronger. This will reduce the lip lines over time but may be more subtle of a result compared to dermal filler.

Alternatively, those not wanting any injectables around the mouth can try micro-needling. This doesn’t offer immediate results but helps to stimulates your skin’s ability to heal and produce collagen and elastin which reduces the lip lines over time.

Are dermal fillers safe?

Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid-based fillers and have an excellent safety profile due to the fact that the body breaks it down over time. The procedure is minimally invasive when done by an experienced medical professional. Every procedure has some risks, the most common risks are some bruising, redness and swelling. All risks will be discussed through during your consultation.

Do dermal fillers hurt?

I do everything I can to reduce any discomfort during treatment to make it as comfortable as possible for you. Topical local anaesthetic cream can be applied to the area beforehand and I use the smallest needles to ensure maximum comfort. Where possible I will use a cannula (a longer/ blunt ended needle) which makes treatment more comfortable. I am a very slow and gentle injector and the feedback I’ve had is that people are always pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the procedure was.

How long do dermal fillers last?

Dermal fillers can last anywhere between 6-18months. This depends on the type of filler injected, how much is used and which area of the face is being treated and how active that part of the face is. It is affected by your own metabolism and how quickly your body breaks it down and this can vary between individuals. This will all be discussed in detail during the consultation.

Do dermal fillers have any side effects?

Dermal fillers are minimally invasive and the majority of people can return to their normal day to day activities straight away. However, like with any procedure there are some risks and the most common ones are bruising, swelling and redness. There is a risk of an allergic reaction but they are very rare. If you suffer with cold sores then I may advise you to take prevent
Dermal fillers are minimally invasive and most people can return to their normal life immediately after treatment. However, all treatments pose some risk; the common side effects are redness, swelling and bruising. Allergic reactions are very rare but can occur. If you suffer from cold sores, it’s advisable to do preventive medication before treatment.

Will I look “plastic” or “overdone”?

Definitely not. I strive to ensure that your results are exceptionally natural. You come on a journey with me whereby I initially will listen to all of your concerns and then I will use my medical knowledge and expertise to create a bespoke treatment plan that is tailored to meet your individual concerns. This means you will not look plastic or overfilled but will have the result that you desire.
