Lip Enhancement provides improved lip fullness to the body of the lips. Volume loss of the lips occurs naturally with time, and replacing this volume can result in more youthful looking lips. Injectable hyaluronic acid filler is used to replace and restore lost volume. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that exists naturally in almost all living organisms. It binds water and is therefore ideal in restoring lost volume within the dermis (skin). It is slowly metabolised (broken down) naturally by the body over time. The results usually last around 6-12 months.
Subtle lip enhancement can also be an effective way to soften the appearance of peri-oral lines (smokers lines), that can often appear as we age. At Day Aesthetics we will be able to advise you on the appropriate treatment for the aesthetic outcome you are looking for.
Lip Enhancement Cost
Prices start from - £225
Before having the treatment an anaesthetic cream is applied to numb the lips. The type of filler used also contains a local anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort felt. A tiny needle is used to inject small amounts of filler into the required areas. There is likely to be some swelling after lip enhancement, and in some cases bruising to the treated area.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will lip enhancement improve the vertical lines 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).
What is recovery like after Lip Enhancement?
Downtime after cosmetic procedures is usually a few hours to a day, depending on the specific procedure and areas treated. Office procedures are performed under local anaesthesia, if any anaesthesia is required. Most patients do not require any time off from work, and may even return to work on the same day
How long is the procedure?
Lip augmentation treatments are relatively quick cosmetic procedures. The length of treatment may range from 30 minutes to an hour.
Will I need time off work after Lip Enhancement?
Most patients do not require any time off from work, and may even return to work on the same day. A longer period of recovery may be necessary for combined procedures.
