Here at our dental practice in Llanelli, we can provide lip fillers. We use a very well-known brand called Restylane and the results are usually seen instantly.
Fillers are made from biodegradable hyaluronic acid and hyaluronic acid is a natural skin component. It acts like a sponge and retains large quantities of water to keep the skin plumped and soft. It comes in gel form and is injected into the skin where results are seen straight away.
If you are thinking of having lip fillers and know what you are trying to achieve then please bring in a photo of the look you want. As this will help us to understand what you want and we can inform you whether or not we can achieve it.
How long does it last?
Everybody is different but usually, you can expect fillers treatment to last between 9-12 months.
Is it painful?
Some people can find having fillers uncomfortable, however, we can provide you with a topical anaesthetic to place around the injection sites to ease the discomfort.
Sometimes fillers can cause temporary swelling and bruising around the injection site. But you can reduce this by taking anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen and holding cold packs intermittently over the area. Also, keep yourself hydrated and keep your head elevated.
If you would like to know more about fillers, ask to book a consultation with our private dentist in Llanelli, Dr Edward Lloyd Jones.
