Do Lip Fillers Hurt?

Do lip fillers hurt? Lip Filler BournemouthAt the Austin Brewer Facial Aesthetics Clinic we get many clients interested in lip and dermal fillers. We are asked  what lip fillers are and how long lip fillers last.  Today we’re going to talk about the other aspect of lip fillers: do lip fillers hurt?

As a reminder lip filling or lip augmentation is a relatively short procedure. Typically an appointment lasts between 30 minutes and an hour.  But don’t worry not all of that time is spent injecting!.  At Austin Brewer, we provide lip fillers in Bournemouth using Hyaluronic Acid.  H A  is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that loses concentration as we age. Injecting Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers raises these levels for a short period (between 6 and 18 months).  So that you can continue to look your amazing self.

So do lip fillers hurt?

Please bear in mind that when the hyaluronic acid fillers are injected into the area, there may be a slight throbbing or a stinging sensation.   However this discomfort normally fades a short while after.  We provide an excellent numbing cream and the filler itself also has a numbing agent.

As with any injection, the area around your lips will encounter some temporary but mild swelling.  But please do not  worry – this minor side effect normally disappears within 24 / 48 hours.  So by the next day you will see the results of your lip filler.  For some it can take a while longer for everything to settle, so if you are considering treatment for a special occasion, please ensure you leave enough time.

What are the risks of getting lip fillers?

The great thing about the hyaluronic acid fillers that we use is that as it’s a naturally occurring substance within the body already.  The risk of allergic reaction is almost negligible.  The fillers we use are the safest lip fillers available today.  It also requires no maintenance!.  At Austin Brewer we are always conscious of making our procedures safer, simpler and less painful for our customers.

So, the short answer to the question “Do Lip Fillers Hurt?” – The answer: “Not that much”.

How to Find Your Next Facial Aesthetic Practitioner

It can be difficult to find a facial aesthetic practitioner that you trust. It is important to always check practitioners accreditations before having cosmetic treatments, and taking the time to think about what you would like to achieve. Use our guide on how to find your next facial aesthetic practitioner with ease:

Medical Grade Skin Peel Treatments1. How much is your face worth to you?

Finding a great deal on a pair of shoes is one thing – hey if they fall apart after a season no problem, but the same isn’t true with your face, is it?

2.  Do you just want the cheapest?

Any cosmetic treatment “deals” are actually illegal so all these “special offers” or “bring a friend” deals are not even legitimate ways of offering cosmetic treatments such as Botox® – Ask yourself why do they need to offer such things to try and persuade people to come to them?

3.  Does experience matter to you?

Fancy being someone’s guinea pig? There’s nothing better than another unsuspecting victim…sorry um patient – has anyone ever actually had to draw on your face where they’re going to inject Botox® or dermal fillers? Warning bells should be going off about now.

4.  How accessible and available is your practitioner?

How about one that’s available 7 days a week 9am to 9pm and always on the other end of the phone? Would you like a discreet and private service? Decide what suits you.

5.  Do you want an honest professional?

An aesthetic practitioner who would tell you when you don’t need any cosmetic treatment, and who truly has your welfare and best interests at heart, not profit?

6.  Would you like your cosmetic treatment to be personally modelled to you, or just look like everyone else?

It’s not a case of one way fits all, unfortunately this is the only way many aesthetic practitioners know how to work.

7.  Do you want your aesthetic practitioner to specialise in this area or don’t you mind a dentist having a go?

Be “excellent” at one thing not “ok” at many – you wouldn’t ask your hairdresser to give your car an MOT or a heart surgeon to give you an eye test – would you? You want to be assured that this is what they do all day every day – this is what makes a true specialist aesthetic practitioner, not just as a side-line as an additional money spinner.

8.  Would specialised experience since 2004 and trained to a master class standard help you choose where to go?

If you’re thinking, yes! Then Austin Brewer has exactly that. We were the first in Dorset to be accredited with the Treatments You Can Trust practice mark which is still the only regulatory board backed by the government.

9.  Does the word “Harley Street” mean anything to you? Or are you just being fooled by the buzzword on some aesthetic practitioners’ websites?

What would you say if you knew that several aesthetic practitioners were providing cosmetic treatments and “1-day training courses” in Harley Street for new practitioners and these instructors have now been struck off for malpractice? Where does that leave those who were trained by them? Are they qualified to practice having been taught by someone who has been banned from practising themselves?

10.  Would you like your aesthetic practitioner to be artistic and understand the boundaries of aesthetics?

Alicia Duval, Jackie Stallone ……I rest my case.

Fill the lines with dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are a biocompatible facial filler solution that will boost your skin tone. Hyaluronic acid is present in the skin, but these levels decrease with age causing skin to become fragile and dried-out.  All dermal fillers in Bournemouth by Austin Brewer are 100% hyaluronic acid based.  If you want plump lips and they lack definition, then we also provide an excellent lip fillers treatment.

Dermal fillers will help to boost your skin tone and can treat the following areas:

  • Face
  • Lips
  • Neckline
  • Neck
  • Hands

Refresh your skin with skin needling

With little downtime and great results, our skin needling treatment has become a popular wrinkle treatment amongst many patients. Skin needling induces the skin’s self-repair mechanism by stimulating micro-injuries that trigger production of collagen within the affected areas.

Once treatment has been completed, your skin will be sensitive and may feel a little tight but after 48 hours and your skin has healed, you will notice the difference. We recommend a course of skin needling treatments for maximum benefits. This will help reduce fine lines, wrinkles and skin lacking in firmness/elasticity.

We are an authorised Dermaroller® clinic, and Austin has been trained to impeccably high standards.
