LipLase laser in London
Liplase is a cosmetic treatment that uses laser technology to enhance the appearance of the lips. It is a non-surgical procedure that involves using a laser to heat and stimulate collagen production in the lips, resulting in fuller, plumper, and more defined lips.
During the Liplase procedure, a laser is applied to the surface of the lips, creating a controlled thermal injury that stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This process results in the production of new collagen fibres, which help to enhance the volume and definition of the lips.
Liplase is a safe and effective procedure, and it typically takes around 20-30 minutes to complete. Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure, and there is usually no downtime required. However, patients may experience some temporary redness, swelling, and bruising after the treatment.
It’s important to note that while Liplase can provide some improvement in the appearance of the lips, it may not be suitable for all patients. Those with severe lip asymmetry or significant volume loss may require other treatments such as fillers or surgical lip enhancement procedures. It’s best to consult with a qualified cosmetic provider at Centre for Surgery in London to determine the most appropriate treatment for your individual needs.
Please note – LipLase is not a treatment for dark or pigmented lips.
Many patients also choose to combine LipLase with Fotona 4D or SmoothEye for more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
Achieve larger lips without lip fillers

This is a day procedure, and you will be able to return to your usual daily routine immediately with little downtime involved.
LipLase uses heat pulses on and around the lips. This works to stimulate collagen production, which results in the lips becoming fuller and plumper over time.

- No injected materials (such as HA fillers) used

Ideal candidates for liplase
You will be a suitable candidate if you wish to increase the appearance of your lips and do not wish to use fillers or undergo a surgical procedure such as a lip lift.
You will need to be at least 18 years old to undergo this procedure.
You will need to have realistic expectations about what the procedure can achieve.
Prior to undergoing this procedure, you will need to have a consultation with one of our practitioners, who will be able to tell you if you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.
The LipLase procedure
LipLase™ is a quick, non-invasive procedure. It will take around 30 minutes to complete.
You do not require any injection of local anaesthetic. However, if elected, a topical anaesthetic cream can be applied to the area prior to treatment due to the slight discomfort during the treatment of external parts of the lips.
The Fotona Erbium laser using the unique non-ablative Smooth Mode is a deep laser treatment that targets the vermillion borders of the lips, the oral commissures, the ridges of the philtrum and the Cupid’s bow area of the lips. The erbium laser acts by creating a thermal effect in the deeper layer of the dermis without affecting the epidermis. Controlled temperature increases of up to 60 degrees celcius results in collagen regeneration. The lips undergo a lifting effect which results in more exposure of the lips due to an increase in volume. The laser energy directly stimulates the production of new collagen.
The second step of the procedure is working with the Nd:YAG laser in PIANO Mode, which is the safest mode for reaching deeper-lying skin tissues with minimal thermal effect on the surface. The lips above the vermillion border will also be treated in order to have a well-defined vermilion border which resembles the effect of a filler.
To achieve the best results, you will generally need three to four treatments.
Recovery after LipLase
After the treatment the lasered tissue goes through three stages of healing: in the first stage, some swelling appears immediately after the treatment and lasts for about two to three days. The second stage is characterised by superficial surface peeling that lasts for 24 to 48 hours after the treatment. Ida recommends to apply skin moisturiser as a lip balm to keep the lips moist and sun protection 50+ to the lips to prevent peeling. The third stage is neocollagenesis, the development of new collagen. The patient needs to avoid going swimming, sporting activities, sun or sunbeds after the procedure.
If the patient reports a previous history of herpes infection, Ida will recommend antiviral agents for recurrent herpes simplex infection before and after the procedure. Many patients report the feeling of the lips being swollen after the procedure. The patient may feel the sensation of mild burning for up to 30 minutes after the treatment. You will notice results improve over time as the collagen continues to be produced. Results will continue to improve over four to six months.
This is a non-invasive procedure with minimal discomfort, minimal risk of change in skin or lumpiness in one area, and all our patients love it!
