Lip dermal filler question

Francesca asked 1 year ago

Please note that we cannot use product names so *** *** indicates where we have changed the words.

I just had a question or two about lip fillers, so I will start with my history.

So I have had 1ml ***dermal filler*** at clear skin care clinics twice, but I wasn’t happy with the injector or the shape I ended up with, and the swelling was terrible.

Last year I was in the UK studying and I ended up getting them done there and thought I was getting the ***same filler*** (i thought to be the superior product) however I found out afterwards I had received ***a longer lasting hyaluronic acid filler***, and I have to say it has lasted really well and there was much less swelling?

The nurse also did WAY less injection sites, maybe just 3 or 4? Basically I just really enjoyed this experience so I was hoping to find a nurse that has worked with ***the longer lasting hyaluronic acid filler*** and their technique involves less injection sites?

And also a price for 1ml of ***the longer lasting hyaluronic acid filler*** would be great!

Thank you,
Francesca

Thanks for the question Francesca. The use of the longer lasting hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in the lips really isn’t recommended and, as a result, we don’t use these in the lips.
Having read experiences and advice from Plastic Surgeons in the USA the general comment is that it is not FDA approved for use in the lips and also it can give an un-natural look over time. Click on the link here to have a read: http://bit.ly/2gvvnRu
In the lips we tend to like the filler that you used the first time. It has been used for years in the lips and gives a predictable result. It can be injected using 4 injection points but it all depends on the shape of the lips and the desired look.
Anyway – I hope that explains our position and you are more than welcome to book an appointment to discuss with one of us in more detail,
