Lips are a prominent feature of the face and people often perceive fuller, plumper lips with youth and beauty. As we age, our lips can lose definition, sag at the corners and develop fine vertical lines known as smokers’ lines which can cause lipstick to bleed and age the appearance.
Lip enhancement treatments are safe and now commonly used to redefine and enhance the lip line and subtlety plump the lip area to revive a youthful appearance.
Lip enhancement treatment is usually carried out using dermal fillers but can also include wrinkle relaxing treatments. Dermal fillers are comprised of a natural biodegradable hyaluronic acid which our bodies naturally break down overtime.
Following a topical anaesthetic to numb the treatment areas, the fillers are injected into the skin in tiny amounts using a very fine needle. You can visualise the treatment almost instantly however the full effects and benefits can usually be noticed around 2 to 3 days following treatment. You should be aware that during this 2 to 3 day period there may be minimal swelling and bruising can sometimes occur so we would always advise that you plan your treatment with this in mind.
