Lip fillers are becoming increasingly popular in the beauty and aesthetics world, and since we can guarantee such great results here at NYLC, it’s easy to see why! However, some clients have concerns about the amount of swelling they are likely to experience after an injectable treatment such as lip fillers – so let’s clear things up.
In this blog, we’re going to be taking a look at what is involved during a lip filler treatment and exactly how much swelling is normal.
Lip Fillers at NYLC
Having a lip filler injection is a quick and simple way to improve your confidence and your smile. Our fillers are completely safe and have been developed by medical experts, so you can rest assured you won’t get a botched job! The Juvederm Smile lip filler treatment we use at NYLC is designed to plump your lips by smoothing out lines and enhancing their natural shape. From a single treatment, you can expect great results lasting up to 12 months!
Are Lip Fillers Painful?
Before coming to the clinic, some of our clients assume lip fillers will be relatively painful – after all, they are injectables. But, if you’re worried about the pain, you don’t need to be. During your procedure we will use a topical numbing cream on your lips, so you will barely feel a thing. Plus, the filler we use has lidocaine built into it, which also helps to minimise any discomfort.
How Much Swelling is Normal?
A lip filler procedure at our clinic will take no longer than 30 minutes, and you will see the results from Juvederm Smile immediately.
Many clients are concerned that there will be downtime following the treatment, and that swelling will affect them, and their smile, for hours or days after the treatment. But, with treatments at our leading London clinics, you can rest assured that this is not the case. Very occasionally, depending on your lips and skin type, you may see slight swelling after the procedure, but nothing that should affect your day-to-day life. Many of our clients go straight back to work after a lunchtime treatment, or meet friends in the city during the evenings.
The only reason a client would see significant swelling would be if they had an adverse reaction to the type of lip filler we use at the clinic. However, since we exclusively use Juvederm Smile, we can practically guarantee its safety for our entire client base.
