When it comes to lip enhancement, it can seem like there is a wide range of price points available, with some clinics offering the procedure for jaw-droppingly low prices. So how much should lip enhancement cost?
Factors that determine lip enhancement cost
The skill level of your practitioner is understandably important, and can dramatically influence how much you pay for lip fillers. Because cosmetic medicine is largely unregulated in the UK, there aren’t strict guidelines on who can perform the treatment, meaning there is a huge disparity in skill levels of clinicians, ranging from board-certified plastic surgeons to beauticians with minimal training.
It is really important to check the qualifications of your aesthetician, to ensure that they have the knowledge required to perform the treatment safely, as well as to a high standard for good results. We always recommend being treated by a doctor, who is trained in using needles and cannulas safely, minimising risk, managing complications, and has studied facial anatomy in depth for effective results. Be aware that if your lip enhancement cost seems too good to be true, it probably is.
Often, prices will reflect the location of a clinic; you would expect to pay more to attend a Harley Street appointment than somewhere less well known. This comes down to demand, for individual doctors within a practice, and the clinic itself. It will also vary by what kind of clinic you are attending: you are more likely to have to pay more for a treatment in a medical clinic than for one in a beautician’s salon.
When you have any filler treatment, it is important that your practitioner uses a safe and effective product. News stories have shown use of, in extreme cases, solutions like tyre sealant and baby oil being used in the place of FDA-approved dermal fillers. At PHI Clinic, we use the Juvederm Vycross range by Allergan for their proven safety, and the in depth knowledge our practitioners have of using these specific filler products for subtle, natural results.
PHI Clinic Consultation
Lip enhancement cost is based on the above factors; the high standards of care and skill from our doctors, the multi-award winning clinic as a whole, and the products we use. They will vary from person to person depending on the complexity of the case and severity of the concern treated, and are also staggered to reflect the demand for Dr Tapan Patel, our medical director, whose consultation fees are £195 and non-redeemable. Associate doctors at PHI Clinic have a consultation fee of £125 and injectable nurses are £50, both redeemable against any treatment you go on to have.
