Dermal Fillers for Lip Enhancement

What are Dermal Fillers for Lip Enhancement?

Lip Fillers are a well-known form of Lip Enhancement procedure that can help you achieve gorgeous, plumper lips by utilising Dermal Fillers, a form of anti-ageing injectable. There are many different types of Dermal Filler, all of which can be used to help add volume to your lips. We would always recommend one that contains hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that can absorb up to 400X its own weight in water. This is important as it means that upon injection, your filler will fill up with water as a sponge would, plumping and adding volume to the area surrounding the injection site!

Why should I get Lip Fillers?

There are numerous reasons why you might be considering Lip Fillers. However, most people choose to join us for treatment because their lips have a thin appearance that they would like to add volume to, or have noticed that their lips have lost – or are starting to lose – volume and plumpness.

The practicality of Dermal Fillers does not stop there though! They can affect much more than your lips and are becoming an increasingly popular form of treatment for helping people lift up the drooping corners of their mouths, as well as adjust the shape of the upper lip, also known as the ‘cupid’s bow.’

 Overall, Lip Fillers are a popular non-surgical enhancement that can help you regain any volume that you have lost as a result of the natural ageing process.

How do Dermal Fillers for Lip Enhancement work?

As your body ages, it is likely that you will start to see a visible change in your appearance. These changes will affect everyone in different ways and at different times, though it is likely that you will start to see fine lines and wrinkles form, and begin to lose definition and volume in and around your face, as early as your mid-20s. The reason for these changes is primarily due to a reduction in the rate at which your body produces both collagen and elastin, two fibres that are essential in helping your skin remain youthful and healthy.

Lip Fillers, a form of Dermal Filler, work by injecting hyaluronic acid into your lips to improve their appearance. Hyaluronic acid can help improve the shape, structure and volume of your lips, offering semi-permanent results. As mentioned above, hyaluronic acid works by absorbing a staggering amount of water, adding volume to the area surrounding the injection site.

 How do I know if Lip Fillers are safe and right for me?

Here at Appearance Based Medicine Ltd., we take your safety very seriously. That’s why before we begin any of our treatments, we ask that all of our patients join us for an in-clinic or virtual consultation via tele-health – a leading provider for safe and secure virtual medical consultations. Our consultations not only give us the opportunity to examine your medical history and assess your suitability for treatment, but they also provide you with an opportunity to ask any questions you may have. During this time we will also provide you with all the information you need to make an informed and confident decision about your treatment of choice.

Lip Fillers, like most forms of Dermal Filler, are an extremely commonplace and low-risk treatment when performed by a trained medical professional, such as Clare McLoughlin at Appearance Based Medicine. There are very few side effects to concern yourself with, and the most common of these is the emergence of redness or bruising around the injection site. These symptoms usually resolve themselves in a short amount of time and are rarely serious.
