My Lip Filler Experience With Dermoperfection, Birmingham

Lip fillers have always been something that has fascinated me and, I’ll be honest, something that I have always wanted but never thought it would happen. I was so thrilled to be told about Dermoperfection.

My top lip has always been a part of me that I’ve never been happy with. It’s always been small and with every smile, it disappeared. Yes, there are makeup tips and tricks to enhance the appearance and make it look fuller, such as overlining, but what about the days that you don’t want or even feel like wearing lipstick?

When I had the opportunity to get a treatment from the newly opened Dermoperfection in Birmingham, I literally jumped at the chance!

Who Is Dermoperfection?

Dermoperfection is located at 36 Pinfold Street in Birmingham and is owned by fully registered practitioner Stu Logan. Stu trained at the leading cosmetic courses academy and has a wealth of experience and knowledge in aesthetics.

After reading all about him on the Dermoperfection website, I felt in very safe hands when booking my consultation.

Consultation

The process couldn’t be easier. Dermoperfection have an online booking system where you can select the timeslot that is best suited to you. You need to have a consultation first, with a brief cooling off period of at least a couple of days before your treatment date, just in case you think of any more questions, or of course, you change your mind about the treatment. During the consultation, Stu will decide what fillers to use on you, this will depend on the desired result that you want.

Treatment Day

The day of the treatment came and I was so excited. Finally, I was going to have the lips that I have always wanted. Stu was so lovely and made me feel at complete ease because I really didn’t have a clue what to expect. He explained what he was going to do and asked me to fill out the consent form and we were good to go.

The Lip Filler Experience

I had some numbing cream applied to my lips which is the most bizarre of sensations. It also doesn’t taste great but that is more my fault for chattering away. You’re not supposed to eat it, after all!

After about ten minutes Stu went in with the injections. I wish I could remember how many I had, but it’s all a little bit of a blur if I’m honest. I won’t lie, it is painful. You’re having a needle in your lips, so it’s not going to be pain-free but I just kept telling myself ‘you’ve gone through childbirth, get over it!’. Within ten minutes the treatment was done and I was thrilled to be able to see the results immediately.

I was expecting a lot of swelling, but to be honest it never really came. I felt comfortable walking around Birmingham city centre after the treatment, confident that no one could guess what I had had done. I was more bothered that my face was missing makeup around my mouth!

Stu advised keeping the lips moisturised as much as possible and gave me a card that had all of the do’s and don’ts post-treatment. These are things like no alcohol, or smoking in the hours proceeding the injections. Nothing major and all easy to do. He explained that any swelling should go down within 48 hours and be warned some bruising may appear. I was obviously very lucky as I had barely any swelling and just one tiny bruise which was easily covered with make-up.

The Results

I was and still am, absolutely thrilled with the results of my lip fillers. For the first few days, I couldn’t stop looking at them. They have now become a part of me and I don’t think I can imagine going back to how I was before. They look so natural which was just the look I wanted. My Mum had concerns I would end up with a ‘trout pout’ and even she has said how lovely they look!

As if all of this wasn’t enough, I then got to go along to the influencers launch night at the clinic and got to meet all of the influencers that had been involved in the launch and talk to them about their experiences. I didn’t speak to one person who didn’t love their treatments. They had a mixture of lip fillers, skin peels, anti-wrinkle injections and fibroblast treatment. They all looked amazing.

I can’t recommend Dermoperfection enough if you are in the Birmingham area and are considering any form of aesthetic treatment. Stu (and Amy, his colleague) are polite, friendly and make you feel completely at ease about asking any questions you might have. A full list of treatments available at Dermoperfection is listed on their website.Dermoperfection will also be opening their doors on Monday the 24th June between 2.30pm-8 pm for a Beauty ‘Decoded’ event. This is an opportunity for those people that have been curious but apprehensive about having a cosmetic aesthetic treatment to receive a consultation, feel the products and speak with Stu directly to demystify preconceptions of aesthetic treatments. You can register your interest here:https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/aesthetic-beauty-decoded-tickets-63307103250

I want to take this opportunity to thank Stu for the wonderful treatment and experience that I had whilst visiting Dermoperfection. It’s safe to say I will be back, I’ve started something now. I can’t wait!

I FINALLY HAD LIP FILLERS…

If you know me out in the ol’ real world, then you’ll probably know I’ve spoke about having lip fillers for about four years. No exaggeration. But like a lot of things – learning to bake or committing to an ab routine, for example – it was starting to seem like one of those things I wasn’t ever really going to get round to doing.

Mainly, this was because I wanted to be sure I was going to the right place. For me, when it comes to these sort of treatments, word-of-mouth recommendations and being able to see previous results is everything. So although I’d been offered lip fillers in the past, I hadn’t been comfortable going ahead with them if I wasn’t absolutely confident in their work.

SO WHY NOW?

I was recently contacted by Dermoperfection, who are located in Birmingham City Centre and offer a range of aesthetic treatments. The clinic looked great, but I still initially planned to just pop in for one of their peels, rather than go for anything ‘risky’ like lips. But then I saw that the lovely Chloe from Unwritten Wardrobe had visited the clinic for lip fillers, and hers looked uh-mazing. I slid into the DMs and she told me about the great experience she’d had with Dermoperfection, and finally I decided to don my sassy pants and get them lips did.

THE CLINIC & CONSULTATION

I went along to Dermoperfection, which is conveniently located just around the corner from New Street Station in Birmingham. My consultation and treatment were with the lovely Amy, who put me at ease straight away as we discussed the sort of results I was hoping to achieve.

I explained that I was looking for something very subtle with it being my first filler experience, and Amy recommended I start with 0.5ml of filler. I know of friends who have been for consultations at other clinics and had therapists try to pressure them into having larger amounts, so I felt like it was a great sign that Amy was happy to take this gradually. 

At Dermoperfection they only use Juvederm, which I know to be one of the best brands for dermal fillers. Juverderm fillers are made from Hyaluronic Acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. This is why the filler naturally absorbs into the body over time, though the fillers have different consistencies that impacts on how long they will last. I think I had Volift, which is one of the longer-lasting fillers that Juvederm offers. 

THE TREATMENT

When I came back for my treatment, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew a numbing cream would be used so I wouldn’t feel pain, but expected it to still be quite uncomfortable. However, I found the whole thing absolutely fine. The numbing cream was applied around 10 minutes before the treatment, which – apart from giving you that paranoid feeling you get at the dentist where you think you might be dribbling all over yourself – made the whole thing so easy. There was an initial scratch when the needle went in, but then I couldn’t really feel anything.

Amy was brilliant throughout the injections, regularly pausing to take in how they were looking and talking me through each step. I felt completely involved during the whole experience, and most importantly confident that I was in safe hands. 

SWELLING & BRUISING

I purposely chose to have my fillers on a Saturday morning when I didn’t have much planned for the weekend. I’m the kind of girl that ends up with week-long bruises if I brush past a door handle a bit quickly, so I fully expected to be swollen and bruised the day after my treatment. I’d even started plotting what lie I could tell my colleagues if I was still puffy on the Monday morning (“bee sting or allergic reaction? Which is more believable when I never venture outside and live off a diet of Greggs vegan rolls?”)

However, I was SO pleased to find that I actually had hardly anything. The tiny pin pricks were easily covered with concealer the next morning, and I didn’t have any bruises. I saw family members later that night and the next day and nobody noticed a thing.

RESULTS

Overall I’m SO pleased with my results. As the photos show, the change was very subtle but noticeable to me. My top lip has been balanced out and overall my lips are looking naturally plumper. My side projection is more pronounced now, whereas before my top lip kind of disappeared from a side view. I’m really happy that I opted for the 0.5ml for my first treatment as I now feel confident to build them up in the future if I want to (and let’s be honest, that’s probably going to happen VERY soon…)

COSTS

My treatment was complimentary in exchange for an honest review, but prices for 0.5ml of filler at Dermoperfection start at £160. I know from my research over the years that this is really fairly priced (and I’d advise anyone against going to clinics that offer filler too cheaply, as the product is likely to be of a lower quality) and is great for the level of expertise you’re getting. I would 100% recommend visiting Amy or Stuart at Dermoperfection for any aesthetic treatments, and know I’ll be booking in again soon.
