Lip fillers and injections are a VERY POPULAR request, as the oral region is a vital part when it comes to facial aesthetic enhancement. Enhanced lip volume with well-defined vermilion borders, upper and lower rip ratios adjusted to facial structure, significantly improve one’s appearance.
Historically very popular with females, this is now becoming an increasing request from males as well.
Dermal fillers are becoming more popular due to their instant results and intermittent lifespan. Treatment takes up to 30 minutes, with minimal pain and no downtime. Simple and easy treatment to help you look fresh.
Results lasts up to 24 months
Lip rejuvenation using fillers, most commonly HA, is a common procedure used to enhance the lip borders, cupids bow, projection and volume. Using professional expertise, our Practitioners aim to get the best possible result.
Some people are born with thin, asymmetrical, or different shaped lips which may have caused them to feel insecure, or attempt to overuse lipsticks to correct certain deficits.
Our filler treatments help provide the right volume and defined lips providing a feminine facial appearance.
With time, UV damage, hereditary factors, smoking contribute to volume loss of the lips, as well as perioral rhytides (smokers lines) and prominence of mentolabial folds (lines between the chin and lips). Early intervention offers a better-end result, and having professional medical care can help treat and manage these issues.
Lips fillers are there to help if you are currently unhappy with the size, shape, borders, or symmetry of your lips. Lip fillers are also great when it comes to keep the lips well hydrated which many people tend to struggle with, especially in the winter season. The fillers when properly injected, will help you achieve the look that you have always found desirable. No more struggling with dry lips, adding lipstick outside your borders to produce the desired effect or shying your lips away from others.
