Dermal fillers for lips

Some lipsticks or glosses have a temporary plumping effect but when you want a longer-lasting solution for a fuller lip, dermal fillers can help.

PLUMP UP THE VOLUME

of women want a more natural look, but who says that fuller lips have to look fake?

Many women dream of having fuller, more defined lips, and while some lipsticks or cosmetic formulas have a temporary plumping effect, for a more durable pout, you need a solution that lasts longer. This can be achieved in less than an hour, with results that look very natural. The lightest type of fillers can be used in the lips, allowing them to move naturally and still feel soft. 

Of course, not all mouths are alike. Some of us have naturally thin lips, or an asymmetrical smile. Indeed, these differences are what define your unique look but, if you wish, you can take steps to enhance your lips. By using dermal fillers to add subtle volume, you can enhance the lips you were born with, with natural-looking, balanced results.


 

HOW LIPS AND THE MOUTH AREA CHANGE OVER TIME

Both the environment and the natural ageing process change the appearance of your lips and surrounding skin. Over time, our facial bone structure actually changes. The two bones in the upper jaw that support the lips (the ‘maxillae’) lose some mass through reabsorption into the body. Without their support, the upper lip appears thinner and flatter. In addition, repeated smiling, pursing and other mouth expressions cause lines and furrows to form.

WHERE DID THE VOLUME GO?

Our skin also loses moisture over time, which means that we lose some elasticity. We smile a lot and this repetition starts to show in ‘marionette’ lines, the furrows that run from the corners of the lips down to the chin. Dermal fillers can subtly add volume to plump out marionette lines, as well as enhance and redefine the natural contours of your lips – importantly, without looking ‘fake’ or overdone.

Whatever your desired result, your practitioner can create a customised treatment plan that brings out the best in your face, with natural-looking results.
