What are the benefits of lip enhancement?
Lip enhancement enhances the contour, definition and shape of your lips. It is used to plump up thin lips or to redefine the lost shape and fullness of lips caused by ageing. Lip enhancement also removes fine vertical lines above and below the lips (called smoker’s lines), lifts up the drooping corners of the mouth and prevents lipstick from bleeding. Although surgical techniques are available, in most cases the condition can be addressed with non-surgical procedures that are non-invasive and therefore associated with less trauma, smaller recovery periods and lower costs.
How long does lip enhancement treatment take?
Treatment usually lasts about 30 minutes and is performed under local anaesthesia. The lip is injected with dermal filler using a fine, disposable sterile needle. Temporary bruising and swelling in the lip area may occur after the procedure and usually subsides within a few days. The results usually last for 6 to 8 months. Lip enhancement is thus a safe and non-invasive procedure that gives you natural, soft, fuller, smooth and symmetrical sensuous lips with a plump pout in just 30 minutes.
What else should I know about lip enhancement?
Before treatment, your cosmetic surgeon will consult with you and evaluate your individual needs to determine the dermal filler that will produce your desired results.
