Hello everyone,

I’m Stacey, the proud founder of The Aesthetic Practice. I’m an NMC registered nurse as well as a qualified Aesthetic Practitioner and I hold several clinic days each month at Omorfia so you can take advantage of my treatments.

I started my career in nursing over 11 years ago and have gained a wealth of hands-on clinical experience. I have worked in Emergency Care as an Acute Assessment Nurse, a GP practice as a Lead Nurse and Outpatients as a Sister and Clinical Services Manager, covering Pre-Operative Assessment and all specialities within surgery and medicine.

I am fully insured and partnered with a wonderful Independent prescriber called Nicola.  I am a member of ICAN – The International College of Aesthetic Nurses and the CMAC – The Complications in Medical Aesthetics Collaborative.  This enables me to access expert clinical support and advice, and continuous education in aesthetic practice. I have also trained in Immediate Life Support for the past 10 years.

I am extremely passionate about ensuring my aesthetic treatments are natural, safe and ethical. I want to eradicate the stigma and negative perceptions associated with aesthetic treatments through the power of education but also by evidencing that they can achieve the most beautiful results when in the hands of a good practitioner. I love that I get to see first-hand the difference this makes to people’s confidence and self-esteem and it’s yet another reason I chose to start a career in aesthetic medicine.

I will be based at Omorfia for two clinics per month where I will be offering my services. My services include: anti-ageing injections, dermal lip fillers, lip dissolving and Vitamin B12 boosters. I also have so much more in the pipeline that I can’t wait to share with you all along the way.

Sending love, Stacey x

Lip Dermal Filler

This treatment will enhance your lips by creating a beautiful fuller and yet natural shape. The results of lip filler will accentuate the smile and can create more symmetry to the face.

Thinning lips are a common reality as we get older, the safe and effective anti ageing treatment of lip filler has become increasingly popular. This treatment is a lovely way to give lips a fuller, plumper appearance – and hence a more attractive, youthful appearance – is to restore lost volume and moisture with lip fillers that contain the body’s own natural material, hyaluronic acid. Lip fillers are the most common way to subtly smooth fine lines around the mouth.

HOW WILL LIP FILLER BENEFIT ME?

The benefits of lip filler and any aesthetic treatment is subjective to each individual. For this reason, I always allow ample time for a thorough consultation. If you’ve considered lip filler because you want more definition in your lips, more volume, or even just hydration; it restores and enhances all of these areas.  It also improves fine lines around the border of lip.

It’s extremely important to me, as your practitioner, that I feel assured you are having treatment for the right reasons, so I will ask you the following questions;

‘Why do you want lip filler?’

‘What is your desired outcome?’

‘Why would lip filler benefit you?’

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY LIP FILLER APPOINTMENT?

First we will perform a thorough consultatation. During the consultation, I spend time to do a full review your medical history, and you must read and sign consent before proceeding with treatment.  Once signed, I add topical numbing cream to your lips for it to begin working whilst we complete the remainder of your consultation. By this time, your lips should feel numb enough to start treatment.  If not, please don’t panic!  I can add more. I do however use an amazing topical numbing cream that works very quickly.

Following consultation, we move to the treatment room.  I start with taking photos of your lips but this is for insurance purposes only. If you are happy for us to share your before and after photos for our social media page, we do ask you to sign a consent form as evidence of this.

After photos, I show you the product we have chosen for your treatment.  I then start preparing for the procedure. I clean your lips with an antimicrobial cleaning solution and I set up my clinical area. We are then ready to begin the treatment.

The procedure takes approximately 20-30 minutes, but can vary dependant on how well the procedure is tolerated.  I can pause the procedure at any time if you need a break.

Your lips will swell during and after the procedure, you will bleed as I am piercing the skin (some more than others) and you may develop bruising during and/or after, but not all individuals’ bruise.

Post treatment, I firmly massage your lips to prevent lumps and bumps.  I clean the area and add arnica gel to help minimise bruising. You are then handed a mirror to look at your beautiful new lips!

After treatment, we return to the consultation area where we complete your post treatment checklist and discuss aftercare. Aftercare advice is also sent via email along with an emergency contact number. I am always at the end of the phone should you have any concerns or queries.

HOW LONG DOES LIP FILLER LAST?

Generally speaking, dermal filler can last anywhere between 6 and 18 months. This is however dependant on many factors; the product used, where it is injected, injection technique, how many times you’ve had filler, and your individual lifestyle.

Lifestyle factors such as, diet, exercise, sun exposure, how well you take care of your skin, hydration, and the frequency of your treatments all effect the longevity of your filler. Good adherence to your aftercare advice can help optimise results.

HOW OFTEN CAN I HAVE LIP FILLER?

You can have lip filler at 3 monthly intervals. However, in most cases this is not necessary and you are far more likely to go 6-8 months before you require a top up.

For those having lip filler for the first time, you are likely to return in 3-6 months. In cases where we decide to start small and build, I can treat sooner to achieve the desired result but each case is assessed and determined on an individual basis. It is not always appropriate.

WHAT WILL MY LIPS LOOK LIKE FOLLOWING MY PROCEDURE?

After treatment, expect your lips to be swollen, flushed in colour and in some cases bruised. They can also feel a little tender to touch once the anaesthetic wears off. This is all completely normal.

HOW LONG WILL MY LIPS TAKE TO HEAL?

Lips take between 2-3 weeks to heal fully but generally you’ll start to see swelling subside day by day over the period of a week. Bruising can take longer to subside but it depends on the degree of bruising – it can take up to 3 weeks. Tenderness may also persist for a few days.

WHAT WILL I FEEL WHEN UNDERGOING A LIP FILLER PROCEDURE?

I describe lip filler as ‘eye watering’ because more often than not, it does exactly that.  However, many clients report it does not hurt as much as they expected it to.

I use one of the leading brands in topical numbing creams and only use fillers that contain lidocaine, so this also adds pain relief during and after the procedure.

IS IT SAFE?

The safety of aesthetic treatment comes down to the experience, skill, qualification, and insurance of the practitioner you are trusting. All aesthetic treatments come with risk, even for the most experienced in the field, but you must feel assure your practitioner knows how to recognise and treat a complication, should it arise.

As well as being qualified in aesthetics, I have also been a nurse for over 11 years.  With this, comes a wealth of hands-on clinical experience and a background in emergency care. I am fully insured and trained in complication management. I am a member of the CMAC – The Complications in Medical Aesthetics Collaborative. This allows me access to expert clinical support, advice, and continuous education in complication management.

All products used at The Aesthetic Practice are CE marked and FDA approved. They have been clinically trialled and proven safe and effective for use and administration.  Your safety is my number 1 priority!

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY LIP FILLER TREATMENT?
  1. Avoid or limit alcohol for a minimum of 24 hours prior to your appointment.
  2. Avoid strenuous exercise the day of treatment.
  3. Avoid ibuprofen and aspirin for a minimum of 3 days prior to your appointment.
  4. Avoid herbal supplements such as St Johns Wart, Gingko biloba, primrose oil, garlic, ginseng and Vitamin E.
  5. Avoid waxing, tweezing, bleaching of the area to be treated.
  6. If possible, remove your makeup prior to treatment.
  7. Keep hydrated and your lips moisturised.
  8. Take arnica tablets for 5-7 days prior to your appointment to help minimise the extent of bruising.
