Jacqui Robertson 56, Lip Filler, Gerrards Cross
Jacqui has always loved the sun and getting a tan was the mission of every holiday she had for many years. She was also a moderate smoker for 20 years, and so as a result she developed deep lines around her mouth, which as she got older she started to really dislike. She came to Springwell Clinic for advice as to how she could reduce the depth of the lines and make her mouth look more youthful. Jacqui, like many of us, didn’t want to have big lips and alter her look, so was apprehensive about what treatment she could have?
Many women get fine lines around their lips even if they have never smoked or over done the sun. These lines form because the skin is thin around the mouth (although often feels thick as it is laid over a muscle), and if you have pale skin the skin is usually thinner still. Add into this, the menopause and the ageing process where collagen is lost, and of course we have to move our mouths to talk and eat, the lines start to form. Men rarely have these fine lines unless they are sleep lines, because their skin is thicker to start with, facial hair protects their skin from the sun and the elements and they don’t have the hormonal changes that women do!
Treating these lines has to be done gradually because the skin is fine and if too thick a product is used, can create more problems. At Springwell Clinic we use Volbella, a filler made by Allergan who are a USA company who make Botox. Their fillers have FDA approval and are very safe to use. Volbella was developed to be used in the fine lines around lips, the lip border and to give slight volume in the lip body. If treated well, an older looking mouth can be rejuvenated to look like a younger, natural looking mouth.
In Jacqui’s case we went slowly as she was nervous about ending up with big lips. I injected just 1ml of Volbella and let it settle and for Jacqui to get used to the change in her appearance. I injected a further 1 ml of Volbella 6 weeks later and Jacqui got the result she wanted.

Aesthetic Nurse Specialist
I have been noticing the lines around my mouth for a few years and especially since the menopause as they have been getting deeper. I’ve been reading lip filler and anti-wrinkle treatment articles and anything that mentions how to improve these lines and decided the time had come to actually do something about them. I was very nervous as with 2 sons and a husband at home who would tease me if my lips looked big, I wanted a subtle result. I researched local clinics and decided on Springwell because of their experience and that they were nurses.
Stephanie explained about the treatment and to go for the natural look that I wanted. When I got home the after the first treatment, my lips were a little swollen but they settled down after a day and I could see the improvement immediately. The second treatment was done a month later and I am so happy with the results. I have a few fine lines left but I’m happy with that as I think my lips look like mine but more like my younger lips.”
I have the natural look I wanted - my lips look like mine only younger
