Far from the exaggerated look you see plastered over the tabloids, PHI Clinic provides subtle, natural-looking dermal lip fillers for lip enhancement that augment each individual’s features and introduce volume to the lip area.
At PHI, we use the most advanced range of dermal fillers from Allergan which is Juvederm Volbella®, specifically designed for lip augmentation. Unlike traditional fillers, Volbella is silky and soft, meaning results are much more discrete and realistic.
Volbella also contains lidocaine, meaning the treated area is numbed simultaneously during treatment, improving the patient experience.Book consultation
PHI Clinic lip enhancement procedures use the optimal brand of fillers with state of the art treatments, which result in perfectly natural looking lips. Our clinicians stay ahead of the curve by attending regular doctor training days conducted by the clinic, which provides them with a platform to learn from each other and improve continuously.
Lip injections results can last up to 12 months. You will see an immediate result after visiting our London clinic for lip enhancement however, it will not be your final result. Optimum results will be see after a few weeks as the product retains water to rejuvenate and add volume. Our mission here at PHI Clinic is natural, subtle results, rather than exaggerated or fake looks, and as such we always prefer to undertreat any concern, but if you feel that you would benefit from more product, you should make this known to your doctor within your follow up consultation.
At first, it is normal to be able to feel the product within the lips, but this should settle down over the next few weeks as the hyaluronic acid gets to work. If, for any reason, you are unhappy with the way your lips appear, these HA injections can be reversed using an enzyme called hyaluronidase, which is introduced into the area via needle and dissolves the product, which is then flushed out of the body through natural processes.
Frequently Asked Questions
People often feel the best place to get lip fillers is on Harley Street. It is not the location but the training and experience of the individual doctors. Dr Tapan Patel, Dr Nestor Demosthenous, Mr Apul Parikh, and Dr Johanna Ward are some of the country’s most advanced injectors, treating a wide range of patients and teaching on the international stage.
The treated area might swell ever so slightly and in worst cases, some bruising may appear. This should subside after a few days though.
Most are suitable for this treatment. Medical history will be discussed during the initial consultation at our London clinic and before and after photographs will be taken. We also need to assess what areas of the lips are most appropriate to treat. In some cases its the corners of the lips that are treated, sometimes we need to increase projection of the upper lip to line up with the bottom lip.
Your treatment plan will be explained in depth at consultation and we will only proceed once we are confident we can meet or exceed expectations.
“One of the most popular uses of dermal fillers is within the lip, being used within this context for more than 20 years, and clearly a lot of people come in because they want bigger lips, but increasingly, patients come in because they want to improve asymmetry or imbalance in the lip. For something like that, the dermal fillers are absolutely ideal.” – Dr Tapan Patel
“At the clinic, my preferred range of fillers to use, especially for the lips, is the Vycross range, made by Allergan. I specifically use two parts of this range, one of them is called Juvederm Volift, and the other is Juvederm Volbella. Volbella is a slightly lighter product, and will give less lift, so it’s ideal for somebody who wants the most subtle lip enhancement. Volift has a little bit more impact and therefore we use it in people who want to see a greater augmentation in their lip.” – Dr Tapan Patel
“One of the worries that patients have when they come to the clinic is, if they’re having lip filler for the first time, is, will it hurt? Naturally, pain is very subjective, but we can take a number of steps to ensure that the procedure is as pain-free as possible. Many patients will do very well with no anaesthesia, and just a simple application of ice to numb the area before we inject. Other patients, particularly if they’re a little anxious or worried, we can offer them some topical anaesthetic cream. What’s also important to know is that the product itself contains some anaesthetic so after the first few injections, the lip tends to numb up in any case.” – Dr Tapan Patel
“One of the most common questions I get asked is what lip fillers are made of. All the fillers that we use contain a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA), which simply put, is just a sugar, it’s ubiquitous in nature, meaning it’s found in almost every single species. The one that we use in our products is made artificially in a laboratory, so in one essence it is just a sugar that has been made in such a way that the different strands link together so they can hold their shape and form for a long period of time.” – Dr Tapan Patel
