While some people may have naturally thin or uneven lips, they can also be a sign of ageing or result from smoking. As you get older the collagen in your lips breaks down and the muscles tire, leaving your lips looking and feeling thinner. This can also lead to wrinkles around the lips.
Many people feel self-conscious about their lips – they may not be balanced or just not how you’d like them to be. We lose 50% of our lip volume by the time we are 50! Lip fillers are the solution using a hyaluronic acid filler (something you naturally have in your skin) to add plumpness and volume or simply balance your lips for more symmetry and to reduce “smokers lines”. It is a very popular treatment and looks entirely natural, no one should guess.
Dermal lip fillers do more than just enhance your natural lip shape; they can also modify your lip shape, prevent lipstick from smudging into fine lines, offer moisturisation, plumping, and redefinition to leave you feeling better than ever.
Dermal fillers are virtually identical to the HA (hyaluronic acid) we have in our skin so the risk of any reaction is very small. This procedure helps to instantly ‘fill out’ and smooth away lines such as nose to mouth and ‘droopy’ mouth corners. Dermal fillers are also very effective for instantly increasing fullness and plumpness to thin lips, enhancing sunken cheeks, temples and can even be used to re-shape the nose.
Results last between 6 and 18 months depending on the area being treated. Areas that require thicker product to promote lift ie: cheeks will generally last longer than a softer product used in areas such as the lips.
