Dermal Fillers and Lip Enhancement
This uses the naturally occurring substance Hyaluronic Acid, which is a major component of connective tissue in the skin. It's used to treat wrinkles and lines not produced by muscle contraction, but from lack of volume.
They are carefully injected just beneath the skin to gently lift and fill out wrinkles such as Naso-labial folds, and Marionette lines. The procedure requires topical anaesthetic agent in the form of a cream which is applied prior to the treatment to minimise discomfort.
The advantage of this treatment is results can be seen immediately after placement and last on average for 6-9 months.
Similarly to dermal fillers, Lip Enhancement also uses Hyaluronic Acid, which is placed in and around the lip structure to help enhance the natural shape of the lips. This is delicately added to help restore the lip line if less defined and provide additional fullness.
This treatment also generally lasts for 6-9 months.
