At the Milecross Clinic, whether bespoke or refreshing,
for definition or volumising...
these lip fillers are from a trained medical professional
Even though it seems like everyone is getting lip fillers, do you still have a fear of trying lip enhancement yourself?
What is it that stops you from making that phone call for lip enhancement if you live in the North Down area?
We have many patients from Newtownards, Bangor, Holywood and Belfast that regularly attend our clinic.
These hyaluronic acid fillers come as two different types - Lips Shape and Lips Contour.
Each syringe is just over half a ml which means that it is more cost efficient for the amount that you need. A patient's lips would rarely need a full ml of product unless you are defining the lip line too.
The lip defining product (Belotero® Lips Contour) is very fine and creates a really crisp defined edge and stays where it is placed. Other thicker products used in the lip line can make the vermillion border look heavy and thick and often the product will drift up into the white lip area ruining the appearance of the mouth.
These products are specifically designed for lip enhancement and also the treatment of vertical lip lines. Both products complement each other and deliver safe, effective and natural looking cosmetic results. A single product is often not versatile enough to deliver the personalized result desired by lip patients. They help you show off the enhanced version of you and gives our practitioner the creative power to tailor to each individual patient.
Belotero® Lips Shape is intended for lip augmentation and enhancing the volume of the upper and lower lip, while Belotero® Lips Contour is designed to define the outline of the lip.
Think of them as your 'lip liner' and 'lip stick'.
Some of the most commonly asked questions are below.
The product that we use comes in different thicknesses and the size of the lips can be meticulously controlled.
Straight afterwards the lips will be swollen.
For the next three days this will get less so you might be slightly self-conscious of their appearance.
There is a chance you may have slight bruising.
There are several different ways to control pain depending on your pain threshold. Numbing cream can be put on the lips to control pain from the injection. The product also contains a numbing agent. A special pen injector can be used to reduce the feeling of pain. A dental injection can be given for even more pain control if requested. The lips are only slightly tender after treatment.
Is it expensive?
One syringe costs from £170 and this can be enough to make a pleasant difference to the appearance of your lips. If you want further effect then another treatment session can be booked. It is advisable to wait a few weeks to see the final result before committing to more treatment.
If done properly they shouldn't feel any different after they have settled.

Vertical lip lines are also known as 'smoker's lines' or 'barcode lines' and can be bothersome at rest and when lips are pursed.
Toxin treatment can soften the pursing of lips to reduce the appearance of dynamic vertical lines (visible lines during movement) and is also known as a 'lip flip'.
Filler treatment can soften dynamic and static vertical lip lines by subtly plumping back the lost fat mattress under the skin above the lip.
Fillers also supports the skin which loses elastin and collagen as part of the ageing process.
