Lips are one of the main focal points of our face. With age, our lips lose fullness, and may appear thinner and elongated, leaving them less defined. Vertical lip lines may appear around the border of the mouth.
Dermal fillers can be injected into the lips and the creases around the lips and mouth to enhance their shape and size and to soften lip creases and lines.
Dermal fillers are used for this procedure. They are made from naturally occurring complex sugars found within the tissues of living cells, including human skin. Our dermal fillers assist in skin hydration by attracting and holding water. Dermal fillers combine with collagen and elastin to help provide skin structure and elasticity. We stock the highest quality range of dermal fillers.
Lip augmentation is not a painful procedure, has no down time and is temporary, lasting 6-12months. Topical anaesthesic is applied to the lips for 30 minutes prior to the lip augmentation procedure. Our dermal filler also contains local anaesthetic. The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes and the results are immediately visible. Swelling may occur for approximately 5 days and occasionally slight bruising may appear.
