Lip Enhancement – Patient Success Story

Photo after dermal filler lip treatment with subtle increase in lip volume. Taken 2 weeks post-treatment.

“I could not be any happier with my lip enhancement. Since I can remember I have felt self conscious and paranoid about my top lip, it completely disappeared when I smiled and because of this it made me want to never laugh or smile!

I am a girl of 26 who loves to socialise and am extremely outgoing therefore this had a huge effect on me. I went for a consultation with Sherina and I instantly felt at ease, I was greeted by Louise who made me comfortable prior to my consultation.

Meeting Sherina I knew I was in good hands, after taking some photos and discussing Juvederm, a hyaluronic acid dermal filler, I felt so confident in my decision to choose S-Thetics and I booked myself in for the following week.

My lip augmentation was quick and easy, numbing cream on and injections in, all done with care, time and patience to ensure I was happy with the results.

I had breaks in between where I held a mirror so I was talked through the process and the minor changes made. Throughout the entire process I had made it clear to Sherina I did not want them to look over done or too dramatic and the results I got were better than I had ever imagined.

I have only Sherina to thank, for finally giving me my smile back!”

About Miss Sherina Balaratnam, founder and Medical Director of S-Thetics Clinic

What happens?

All patients have the option of having a topical anaesthetic cream applied to the treatment area(s) for 30 minutes prior to treatment. This helps to minimise any discomfort during the treatment.

How long does it take?

Treatment time is up to 30 minutes depending on the areas selected and results are immediate, long lasting and natural in appearance.

Treatments can be phased over more than one appointment, giving you control over the ideal look you wish to achieve.

Do the injections hurt?

The latest dermal fillers contain lidocaine, an anaesthetic within the product, and we use the finest gauge needles. Topical anaesthetic cream can also be applied 30 minutes prior to treatment, all of which make lip filler treatment relatively painless.

How frequently do I need them?

Depending on the area treated and injectable filler product selected, you can expect the results to last up to 1 year.
