The lips are one of the most prominent features on the face where people’s eyes are drawn to first. This means that as we get older, changes to the appearance of the lips are inevitable and visible.
Yet, the Lip Injections procedure at Esteem can restore the natural volume and plumpness of the lips, as well as reduce the appearance of wrinkles to combat the signs of aging.
This is achieved through dermal filler injections to the lips, which is a non-invasive and simple treatment. In addition, the lip line can be defined, with the restoration of the youthful Cupid’s bow and natural lip contour.
• Fast and simple procedure

• Non-surgical treatment
• Minimal discomfort
• Combat signs of aging
• Reshape the lips
Before receiving lip injections, patients will attend a consultation with a professional from Esteem. This will allow you to find out if this dermal filler treatment is right for you and you can discuss what results you would like to achieve. In addition, we can give you an idea of what you can expect from the procedure.
The consultation is also the best time to ask any questions you have about lip injections or have your concerns addressed directly by an experienced professional before deciding whether to go ahead with treatment.
Prior to receiving the dermal filler injections, an anaesthetic cream will be applied to the skin to numb the area. This will make sure that patients are as comfortable as possible, with any pain minimised.
A professional will use a series of fine injections administered directly to the lips to insert the substance underneath the skin.
In addition, the lips will be gently massaged to make sure that the dermal filler is evenly distributed into the lips for a natural looking plumpness. The lip injection procedure normally lasts around 30 to 45 minutes.
Lip injections are suitable for both men and women, as well as all skin types. The ideal candidate would be noticing signs of aging and a loss of volume specifically on the lips. In addition, there may be wrinkles and the loss of the shaped of the Cupid’s bow.
Lip injections are well tolerated by patients. The anaesthetic numbing cream makes sure that patients are comfortable during the procedure and while you may feel the sensation of injections going into the skin, this should not be painful.
It is normal for the lips to appear slightly swollen straight after the dermal filler injections. But, this should subside within 48 hours of treatment. You may also see a small amount of bruising on the surface area where the needles were inserted. Again, this will soon disappear on its own.
There is minimal downtime associated with lip injections. Patients are free to leave the clinic as soon as they are ready and return to their daily routine. This means that in most cases, you will not have to take time off work.
The results of lip injections can be realised instantly after treatment.
