If your lips lack the plumpness you desire, you might be considering lip fillers to create the look you want. Lip fillers can replace lost volume and give definition, while still looking and feeling completely natural.
What are lip fillers made from?
As we age, our lips naturally lose collagen and fat, making them appear thinner. Lip filler injections are one of the most popular ways to increase lip size. The procedure offered here at MedSkin Clinic involves injecting small amounts of hyaluronic acid into the lips – a completely natural compound produced by the body.
Hyaluronic fillers are the most widely used in the industry to plump lips. The product itself is a gel-like substance that attaches itself to the water molecules in the skin. The lips will appear fuller and more hydrated, with a shorter recovery time than other more invasive surgeries.
How many lip filler injections will I need?
The key to creating natural looking lips is to do things gradually. Before booking your free consultation, think about what you want to change – do you want to define the edges of your lips, or do you want the lips themselves to look fuller? Depending on the result you’re after, you will then be recommended a course of treatments.
How long do lip fillers last?
Scientists have found that hyaluronic acid injections often encourage the skin to produce more collagen in the lips, which in turn creates more natural plumpness. That said, you will probably need to get repeat lip filler treatments every 6 to 12 months in order to keep up your desired lip.
Is the treatment painful?
Many people worry about the pain before getting lip fillers, but here at MedSkin Clinic, we have a team of clinicians trained to perform injections in the most pain-free way possible. They’ll use a numbing gel on your lips before the injections to keep you comfortable and provide you with the best advice for aftercare.
