What is a thin lip treatment?
As we get older, our lips are one of the most vulnerable areas for ageing. Over time our lips start to lose fullness and wrinkles starts to appear. A dermal filler also known as Hyaluronic Acid (a natural sugar found in our body) is injected in different areas of the lips. The dermal filler has a smooth gel consistency that delivers a natural look and feel with results that are proven to last up to a year.
Dermal filler can be injected into the vermillion border to recreate that defined shape we have when we are younger. Treatment can make the lips appear less thin and give a more balanced look to the mouth. Finally, it can smooth fine lines above the upper and lower lip .
What are the benefits of thin lip treatment?
After the treatment, the lips are more even, defined and plumper. The wrinkles around the upper and lower lips are softened. The lips will appear more hydrated in the days following your treatment. The results are immediate and can last up to 12 months.
What is involved in thin lip treatment?
During a consultation, one of our practitioner will examine your face. They will determine if you are suitable for this procedure. If so, photos will be taken before the procedure.
The lips will be cleansed with an antiseptic solution and the practitioner will mark the areas to inject. A topical local anaesthetic cream will be applied to your skin. It will be left on for about 20 minutes.
After the local anaesthetic is removed the practitioner will start injecting.
Photos will be taken after the procedure, and this allows the practitioner to compare the results.
What are the risks or potential side effects of thin lip treatment?
There may be some bleeding during the treatment. As a result, there may be some bruising and swelling in the injected area that can last for 24 to 48 hours. Your practitioner may recommend applying ice for 15 minutes afterwards on the injected area to minimise swelling and to make it more comfortable.
