Lip augmentation is carried out using Juvederm Ultra Smile, a dermal filler, to give the lips definition and/or volume.
Dermal fillers are one of the most popular non-surgical treatments among patients who wish to combat the signs of ageing, by injecting them under the skin to restore the firmness and smoothness of the skin that is associated with youth.
Non-permanent fillers such as hyaluronic acid have emerged as the leading choice among both practitioners and patients; it is a naturally occurring substance within the body and is therefore highly biocompatible and very safe. These fillers come in varying viscosities for different indications. Treatments are commonly provided around the lips, the lips themselves, the ‘nasolabial lines’ running from the nose to the mouth and the ‘marionettes’ around the corners of the mouth. It is possible to treat finer lines with dermal fillers, find out more.
Effects of fillers can last from 6 – 8 months but duration differs from person to person and from one area of the face to another. The use of pre-operative topical anaesthetic cream helps to ensure that treatment is as comfortable as possible, so that the dermal fillers are not felt as they are administered.
