Also known as lip fillers or augmentation, our lip enhancement treatment effectively adds or restores volume to the lips, producing natural-looking, more plumper results.
The lips can shrink with age and lose their plumpness and definition due to the loss of fat and collagen. We use Dermal Fillers to achieve warm, natural, fuller looking lips.
Dr. Ash Labib will inject directly into the part of the lip that you wish to plump up and fill out, as well as enhancing the cupids bow.
Naturally thin lips are often a result of genetics, but lips thinning with age is common. Dermal fillers provide a more youthful appearance, add plumpness to the lips, and are safe to use.
If you have a gummy smile, we can inject filler into the upper or lower lips to reduce it. Lip filler injections work to add volume to the lips, helping to cover the gums on show.
Lip fillers are able to adjust the dimension of your lips. So, if one side is lacking shape, this injection can construct a well proportioned look to match the other side.
The ‘Cupid’s Bow’ or ‘Russian Lip’ technique involves injecting filler into the v-shaped area of the top lip. This will effectively enhance the peak of the lips and subtly improve the look and shape of the top lip.
The results are instantaneous and swelling starts to go down after a week. You won't start to see the real results until 2-4 weeks after.
At your free consultation, we will take a medical history and discuss your areas of concern. Sometimes we may advise a combination of treatments to achieve the result you are looking for.
Within two weeks after your treatment, we will invite you back for a check-up, just to make sure you’re comfortable, are having no problems and love your new lips.
From about 6 to 9 months usually, however, it can differ from person to person and depends on the amount of filler being injected.
It can be slightly painful, especially on the cupid’s bow, as the lips are a sensitive part of the face. But generally, it is manageable as we can apply numbing cream prior to injection.
Avoid drinking alcohol or partaking in strenuous exercise as it can result in additional bruising. During your appointment we can discuss further post-treatment instructions.
