Lip Filler

Lip fillers, a popular aesthetic treatment, are used to enhance the volume and shape of the lips. The procedure typically involves the injection of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, which provide a natural look and feel. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the body, which helps retain moisture and adds plumpness to the skin. The treatment can be customised to achieve subtle enhancements or more dramatic changes, depending on the patient’s preference. It is minimally invasive, with a relatively quick recovery time, making it a convenient option for those seeking to improve their appearance without undergoing surgery.

Lip fillers offer temporary results, typically lasting from six months to a year, depending on factors such as the type of filler used and the patient’s metabolism. This temporary nature allows individuals to experiment with different looks and make adjustments over time. Regular maintenance appointments are required to sustain the desired appearance. While lip fillers are generally considered safe, it is crucial to choose a skilled and experienced practitioner to minimise the risk of complications, such as uneven results or filler migration. Overall, lip fillers have become a mainstream cosmetic treatment due to their ability to enhance facial aesthetics with relatively low risk and downtime.
