Lip Fillers in Newcastle
Lip fillers involve injecting a soft, clear, gel like substance found naturally in our body - hyaluronic acid - into the lips to enhance its volume and definition The results achieved can range from a subtle rehydration to improving the size and definition of the lips. .
Like with all my treatments the consultation phase is key to a successful treatment. We offer free 60 minute consultations which allows me to fully assess the face and lip proportions so that we can have a discussion what would allow us to enhance how the lips harmonise with the rest of the face. At Dr Andrew's Newcastle Cosmetic Clinic we favour a more natural enhancement to both the lips and our other treatments. The premium products that we use - Juvederm vycross allows us to achieve this natural long lasting result which feels very smooth compared to most other fillers available on the market.
The aim of the procedure is to use the lip filler to improve the volume in the body of the lip and in some cases subtly add definition to the border of the lip.
In most cases I use a cannula to carry out the lip augmentation which allows us to keep the injections to two small holes at the side of the mouth in which the cannula can access all areas of the lip. This helps reduce the risk of complications and bruising. It also allows us to carefully tailor the treatment plan to you as we can add filler in small amounts and then assess.
Comfort of the procedure is important at Dr Andrew's Newcastle Cosmetic Clinic and as such long appointment times are booked to allow for appropriate application of numbing cream and potentially the addition of numbing injections.
The premium Juvederm vycross lip filler that we use is then eventually naturally broken down by the body over the course of approximately to 12 months
Are lip fillers painful?
Although the lips have a reputation for being an uncomfortable treatment Dr Kane has developed a number of methods to make the procedure more comfortable. Numbing cream Is used as well as injecting a small amount of numbing agent into the area to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.
Are lip fillers permanent?
The lip fillers carried out at our clinic are not permanent. We use a hyaluronic acid filler (the brand we use is the premium Juvederm vycross) which is found naturally within our body..This means over a period of time our body naturally breaks down the lip filler at which point they will return to how they were previously

There is no specific downtime to the procedure itself. Rarely there can be a small amount of swelling for the first day or two but not to the extent were it would prohibit daily activities
How long will lip fillers last?
Lip fillers will usually last approximately 12 months.
Will a cannula or needle be used for my lip fillers?
This can be discussed at consultation however Dr Kane prefers to use a cannula to reduce the risk and the downtimes associated with the procedures
