Lip treatments with dermal filler can be done for several reasons. To enhance and boost what we already have, to give us more pout or to create symmetry. Our lips change with age, they become thinner and less defined, and we lose the natural fullness. Buy using a dermal filler that is safe and specifically for this area we can, restore that lost volume, and redefine the shape, and add
hydration so that the lips look more youthful.
You really don’t have to have a false, unnatural “trout pout”, a dermal filler lip treatment can be as subtle as you want it to be.
We can also improve the look of the lines around the mouth, sometimes referred to as smokers’ lines, and we can improve the downturned corners of the mouth.
We can use different types of filler for different purposes; a very light filler can just give hydration or a very subtle enhancement, a slightly stronger filler can give a more obvious fuller look that can still look natural.
There are a range of types of filler for all requirements, At alchemy we only use premium brands that have a high safety profile. For example Teoxane or Juvéderm.

What happens during the treatment?Once the appropriate product has been decided on, photos will be taken both before and after the treatment. The hands will be cleaned and a topical anaesthetic cream will be applied. The treatment area will be marked out with a sterile white marker. Injections will be carried out using either a needle or a cannula.
How long does the treatment take?You will be in the clinic for 30 – 45 minutes, depending on the treatment being done.
Does it hurt?The sensations can be described as “pinchy” but most people find this quite tolerable
How long will the effects last?Depending on the treatment chosen for the hands, the effects will last up to 9 months. It is recommended that you also use hand cream and SPF daily to prolong the effects.
Do I need repeated treatments?As with most aesthetic treatments maintenance is required. But with good homecare as well as the clinic treatments the effects can last so that treatment may only need to be done once a year. Twice if the treatment is profhilo.
What will I look like immediately after treatment?Immediately after treatment there will be some raised bumps, this will disappear over the next few hours. It is possible to get some bruising.
Do I need to do anything special before or after the treatment?Before treatment it is recommended to limit alcohol for 24 hors and limit the use of anti-inflammatory painkillers, both of these can increase the risk of bruising. Some supplements such as vitamin e and fish oils can also have this effect, so stopping these a few days before treatment can also be useful. Do not stop any prescribed prescription medication without discussing this first. After treatment, keep the hands clean and avoid the use of hand creams for 4 hours.
