What is Lip Enhancement?
Lip Enhancement provides a natural and improved fullness to the body of the lips. Volume loss of the lips occurs naturally with time, causing the lips to turn inwards, creating a thin line. By replacing this loss of volume the result will be more youthful and natural looking lips. Our practitioner at The Beauty Centre has many years’ experience in treating lips and we will be able to advise you on the appropriate treatment for the aesthetic outcome you are looking for. Before receiving this treatment a local anaesthetic is gently injected to numb the lips and areas such as the vermilion border, the philtrum, cupids bow and the body of the lip can then be naturally enhanced with little if any pain being felt. There may be some swelling and bruising after lip enhancement for a short period of time. To ensure a desired and natural look is achieved, if required we offer this treatment is two stages to ensure a completely natural outcome.
Will Lip Enhancement improve the vertical line in my lips?
Any volume that is added to the lip will tend to improve lines near the vermilion border (the border between the red and white skin of the lip). In many cases, we recommend the use of PDO Threads as these tend to soften the lines far more effectively. (Please see PDO Threads for more details). Lip augmentation treatments are relatively quick cosmetic procedures. The length of treatment may range from 15 minutes to an hour. Procedure times will vary depending of what correction is required. Sufficient time is always given to ensure the desired outcome is achieved.
What is recovery like after Lip Enhancement?
Downtime after cosmetic procedures is usually a few hours to a few days, depending on the specific procedure and areas treated. When treating the lips it should be noted that due to the large amount of vessels both in and surrounding the lip, bruising and swelling is likely to occur. These procedures are performed using local anaesthesia and most clients experience little if any discomfort.
Will I need time off work after Lip Enhancement?
Most clients do not require any time off from work and may even return to work on the same day. A longer recovery period may be necessary for combined procedures and this will be discussed at your consultation.
Reversing the affects of unwanted Dermal Fillers?
Following a small injection into the area to be corrected, the enzyme acts within minutes to dissolve the unwanted filler restoring the original facial contours. The desired level of removal can usually be achieved with careful monitoring of the enzyme, with larger doses resulting in complete elimination of the filler from the implantation site.
The easy reversibility of these commonly used dermal fillers provides a comforting safety margin that ensures such fillers are associated with almost no permanent adverse events or unwanted results. This benefit contrasts strongly with the inflexibility and irreversibility of permanent fillers. We offer a correction / removal service for patients that have received a dermal filler at another practise and are unhappy with the results. Please telephone and book your consultation.
Are there any side effects of dissolving Dermal Fillers?
Localized allergic reactions can occur. Treatment is not recommended for clients with a history of an allergy to bee venom. Bruising may occur following injection, especially when treating the lips and surrounding areas.
