Lip fillers

Anti-wrinkle treatment overview

A particularly sought after-treatment we offer here at Rejuvenate at North Street is helping people have more fuller, kissable and natural looking lips using dermal fillers. The dermal fillers we use at Rejuvenate are natural proteins called HA, which the lips themselves are made up. By topping up the HA content, you increase the lips volume and fullness.

The procedure involves a series of small injections which allow us to sculpt the lips to the size, shape and form you desire. We usually allow up to 1ml of dermal filler to be placed in each lip at a time. This means if you want to take very thin, delicate lips and get them to a highly generous profile, it will take 2-3 treatments spaced out over several weeks. If you place too much in one session, then the filler can migrate to an unintended position, and you can have a less natural looking result. Here at Rejuvenate, we pride ourselves in enhancing your natural lip form to give you lips that suit your face shape, that your friends and family recognise as you… just the best version of you.

The process of creating great natural lips starts with a free consultation where we chat to discover what type of lip you want to craft for yourself. The procedure itself takes anywhere from 15-25 minutes depending on how much filler is required. At Rejuvenate we use Juvederm smile which has an anaesthetic built-in to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. Typically you will feel an initial pinch as the first injection helps make the lips full and beautiful, then as the anaesthetic gets to work, you gradually feel less and less.

Dr Joe explains lip filler treatment

How long do the effects of lip fillers last?

Lip filler effects are temporary, lasting between 4-18 months, with an average of 6-9 months for most patients.

How quickly do you see the effects of lip fillers?

The effects of lip fillers are instantaneous. However, the look and feel will improve over around three weeks. HA is hydrophilic and will absorb 1000 times its weight in water, and this helps to hydrate the skin and give a softer, more natural feel to the area.

Does it hurt to have lip filler injections?

We use a combination of pre-anaesthetic, filler containing anaesthetic and a vibration distraction device. As a result, we ensure we are looking after you and providing the most comfortable and relaxing treatment possible.

How much lip filler can I have in one session?

At Rejuvenate at North Street, we want to sculpt beautiful features safely and predictably. Consequently, we recommend no more than 1ml in any one area at a time. This allows placement of filler in the exact area intended.

How much does it cost for Lip Treatments?

Lip filler treatment costs are depending on the volume of filler that we use:

Mild £295

Medium £395

Extensive £495

Aftercare instructions for lip fillers

Immediately after treatment, there may be slight redness, swelling, tenderness and an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a typical result of the injection. The inconvenience is temporary and generally disappears in a few days.

  • Apply an ice pack to the treated area. This will reduce any initial swelling.
  • The initial swelling may last longer. It can last for about a week, and the lips may look uneven during this time. The results directly after the treatment should not be seen as the final result.
  • Avoid touching the treated area for 6 hours following treatment.
  • Avoid washing the area with soap and water for 6 hours.
  • Until the initial swelling and redness have resolved, do not expose the treated area to intense heat (e.g. solarium and sunbathing) or extreme cold.
  • Avoid applying make up to the area for 6 hours. After this, light makeup can be used, and the area can be gently washed with soap and water.
  • Avoid laser treatment, chemical peels or similar procedures as they may elicit an inflammatory reaction.
  • If you have previously suffered from cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another eruption of cold sores.
  • If you are taking aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, or any similar medication, these may increase the bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
  • For any concerns at all, please contact the practice. We are on North Street, Dudley, West Midlands. Full details on the contact page.
