Lips & Heart Lips ®
Lip augmentation is a treatment in which a dermal filler is injected into the lips, to add long lasting volume and definition.
Full lips are fast becoming a preferable look for this generation. In recent years there has been a significant rise in the popularity of lip filler treatments for both men and women. At DrBK, we offer dermal lip fillers using various techniques, including Dr Bob Khanna’s world renowned, specially developed “HeartLips®” technique.
If you decide to go ahead with lip fillers, we will book you in for an initial consultation, discuss your desires, and create a bespoke treatment plan.
What is HeartLips®?
Developed by Dr Bob Khanna, HeartLips® is a specific technique used for the creation of heart shaped lips. By using precision placed fillers, the lips are naturally shaped, beautifully balanced and proportioned with your face. This particular technique can only be carried out by a medical professional that has been specifically trained by Dr Bob Khanna, and hold a valid license to administer this technique. The below images are perfect examples of the HeartLips® shape.
What can I expect on the day of treatment?
Your procedure will be carried out by Dr Bob Khanna himself.
On arrival to your appointment, we will remove any makeup and cleanse the area. We will apply a topical anaesthetic on to the injection sites, to ensure the treatment is as pain-free as possible.
To help keep swelling and bruising to a minimum, we administer the product with the use of a cannula. A little discomfort is not uncommon. However, if you feel particularly sensitive, we are able to administer a local anaesthetic, although in most cases this is not necessary.
Your appointment will last for around 30 minutes. This allows time for cleansing of the skin, numbing and the treatment itself.
How soon after treatment can I expect to see results?
The beauty of this procedure and product, is that the results take effect immediately. As your own natural collagen is stimulated, your results will actually continue to develop over the course of the month. The effects are long-lasting, non-permanent and reversible. Due to this, most of our patients will return for a top up, every 6-12 months.
What are the risks and side effects?
The majority of reactions post-procedure, are generally minimal and temporary. You should expect a degree of swelling and slight bruising is a possibility. However, these reactions should subside within the week.
After treatment, we advise you to avoid the following for up to 2 weeks;
- Touching or rubbing the area (to ensure placement of the product is not manipulated)
- Any facial treatments, as well as saunas (or anything involving extreme temperatures)
We will invite you to attend a review appointment 3 weeks post-procedure. At this appointment, we’ll review your treatment and make any adjustments (if necessary).
Full, written, aftercare instructions will be provided on the day of treatment, for you to take home with you.
The Importance Of Choosing Your Clinician Carefully!
