What is Lip Augmentation?

Lip fillers are injections of hyaluronic gel placed into the lips. The lips are composed of layers. From the orbicularis oris muscle to the vermilion border (white roll). Injections of filler are strategically placed into these layers to produce the desired results.

Russian Lips (Flat Lip) Vs Normal Lip Augmentation

Russian lips give more of a lip lift (vertical projection). As opposed to a traditional lip augmentation which projects the lips forward. The injection techniques are different for each type. Typically a combination of Russian lips and traditional   lip augmentation provide the optimal result. This will be discussed with you at your consultation/treatment day. We can control the technique depending on the look you wish to achieve.

Lip augmentation is often combined with chin and nose to restore and correct your profile, beautifying and providing balance.

Book one of your Tx plans (2ML or 3ML) for this treatment.

How long does it last?

Like all dermal filler procedures, filler lasts dramatically longer with repeated treatments. In the lips, results can last up to 6-9 months after 1st treatment. With the 2nd treatment the results can last up to 18 months. Of course this is not an exact science and filler is metabolised different between individuals.

Does it hurt?

To our knowledge we are one of the few clinics in the UK providing dental block for total anaesthesia. Its the gold standard pain relief for lip augmentation. Our clients do not feel a thing during the lip augmentation process. After a few injections of local anaesthetic into the gum your lips will go completely numb. It will numb the lips from inside out, numbing all layers of the lips. Numbing cream only numbs the superficial layer of the lip. Filler is placed in the deeper layers, hence why with numbing cream you still feel the pain. With local anaesthetic, the numbing sensation will last 1 hour. Also dental block contains adrenaline which completely minimises the risk of bruising during the lip augmentation.

What type of filler do you use?

We stock most types of dermal filler brands ranging from Perfectha to Juvederm. We only use hyaluronic acid filler, as this is safe and if needed, completely reversible. Hyaluronic acid is non- permanent filler. Permanent filler caries the risk of infection, rejection and long term scarring. We do not use permanent filler. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring and the this filler will integrate with your biology to provide you with a natural enhancement. Lips are highly unique and therefore we tailor what product we will use on you on at your consultation. Some clients require thin filler for just definition, others would like thicker filler for greater volume and plumpness. Clients become fixated on what brand of filler we use etc. However trust us when we say, over 90% of the cosmetic result depends on the skill and artistic flare of the medical professional holding the filler in their hand rather than the brand of filler being used.

Needle Or Cannula?

For lips we use both. The determination of the technique will be decided at your consultation / treatment day.

Combination Treatment

Lip augmentation are often incorporated with chin filler to completely balance the profile. We can perform this at the same time.

Dear Dermis team

The purpose of my message is to express my sincere gratitude for the impecceable service I have received.

This is for the easy and speedy communication via what's up, as well as the experience encountered in your clinic including the charming colleague who checked me in.

My appreciation is by no means an understatement and you all have made me feel extremely valued.

I wish I would have known about you before visiting another clinic as I am now able to reflect on the comparison of my experience.

Dr Sef, thank you for making me feel so comfortable, something I sadly did not experience with the other clinic.

I believe, that you were honest and transparent and demonstrated skills I infortunatley did not witness before.

The most important point I am trying to make is, that considering that the procedure is very intimate, you made feel at ease.

The result looks great and I am looking forward seeing you in two weeks time.

Thank you again.

I just had my final (6th) session for laser hair removal treatment with Mel. I must say they just got a new machine and it is pain free. I would definitely recommend Dermis Clinic Mel is really friendly I will be booking another treatment later in the year. I’m really happy with the results 😄 Thank you so much

I have been coming to Dermis Clinic for years for multiple laser treatments and have found it great quality and Mel is so lovely. Due to this I decided to have my Botox done by Dr Sef rather than my usual clinic. I felt at ease straight away and despite being too early to see my results (takes 10-14 days) I can already tell by previous experience that Dr Sef’s treatment will bring great results. Thanks!

Had my lips done for the first time ever here. They swelled up a lot as would be expected but already tonight the swelling has nearly all gone and I am so in love with how they look! The entire process was explained to me and I was made to feel comfortable and at ease. Would recommend to anyone thinking about getting a procedure done. :)

Vitne Le

I started my laser hair removal treatment at the end of December. Only 2 treatments in and there is barely any hair, I am stunned by how good the treatment is. Amirah is absolutely lovely, she’s a great listener and has made me feel extremely comfortable each time I’ve been. The clinic itself is super cute and most importantly clean! Would 100% recommend!

Had my CORE training with Dr Sef last week. Had such an amazing day, was very professional, and got to learn so much. Loved that it was practical and I now feel very confident. Since the training he has been supportive. Thank you.
