Alaina's Lip Filler Journey
We have recently had the pleasure to meet the lovely, Alaina. Alaina initially came to us in February this year after researching to find the right practitioner for about 12 months. As you know from our previous blogs, we love to build up the lips gradually for the most natural, long lasting result! If you haven’t already, have a read about how our first ever lip filler client has built up her lips over the last 3 years- Ruhina’s Lip Filler Experience
Alaina explained she wanted her lips to look fuller but still remain natural. As many of our clients, she did not like the fake “duck pout” look. We advised through a consultation the best treatment and product for Alaina. We together decided to start off with 0.5ml Juvederm filler as this was Alainas first time having any treatment and she wanted to build up to her desired lips.
We applied the instant numbing cream, did the consent forms and started with the treatment. The procedure lasted around 5-10mins and Alaina experienced minimum pain or discomfort. Once finished, the natural result could be seen straight away and Alaina was already very happy!
If you didn’t know already, lip fillers can cause bruising/swelling and take up to 2 weeks to completely heal. Full after care was given as well as arnica gel for Alaina to use post treatment. Alaina kept us updated regularly and hardly had any bruising or swelling after treatment.
Alaina loved the end result and was so pleased it didn’t look unnatural. She then decided to return last month for a top up but this time having 1ml Juvederm filler. We have now started to use a much stronger numbing cream which also restricts any bleeding during treatment and bruising or swelling post treatment.
The 1ml Juvederm is a larger particle size filler which means it is thicker and can provide more volume- but due to our technique the result still remains natural. The filler is much more longer lasting and can last up to 12 months, providing a fuller appearance to the lips. Alaina said, the 0.5ml was very subtle and great for her first time but she wanted something that could last longer and give her a little more volume.
During the procedure, due to our new numbing cream, Alaina did not feel anything and there was hardly any bleeding therefore the healing was great! Minimum bruising and swelling, which is what we want! Alaina was very pleased again and this time felt the lips were still natural but slightly more noticeable and plumped.
We love building up the lips with the best products to your bespoke requests. If you're still unsure about lip filler treatment or have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us or you can always book a free consultation.
