Lip Enhancement – Lip Augmentation
Over the years, the lips tend to lose volume and border definition. The skin that covers them is much thinner than in other areas of the face, enhancing the effects of aging on the lips and perioral region before other areas.
Hyaluronic fillers are soft gels to restore volume and improve the contour and redefine the lips profile.
Depending on the preference of each patient and the lips’ shape, fillers can be used in different ways to obtain the best results:
– Enhance definition and lip contour to improve profile in a natural and balanced way.
– Fill perioral wrinkles and marionette lines to obtain a youthful appearance.
– Increase the volume to get fuller more sensuous lips, without losing the naturalness or the facial harmony.
Using a small needle the filler is injected beneath the surface of the lip.
The result is instantaneous.
The procedure usually lasts 15 minutes, and is not painful. You can return to work and normal activity immediately.
This treatment provides a great improvement in facial contouring, giving patients more fulfilment with their new lips profile.
The results remain approximately eight months to a year, after which the treatment can be repeated.
If a permanent treatment is desired, a lipofilling from the same patient can be used.
