Lip enhancement is a procedure used to either define the natural lip line or border and/or to plump up the pink part of your lips. There are different substances (all natural and registered drugs) that are used specifically to acheive a required result. A fibrous product may be used for greater definition, whereas a jelly-like product may be used to enhance the volume of the lips.
How is the procedure performed?
Techniques for lip enhancement injections are similar to those for cosmetic injection therapy. A consultation prior to treatment (may be on the same day) will allow the practitioner to review and discuss with you the need for cosmetic injection or lip enhancement injections and an appropriate treatment plan according to your particular needs and budget.
You may immediately proceed with a treatment if you desire. icy poles and local anaesthetic injections will be used to numb the treatment areas prior to injection to minimise discomfort.
What results can I expect?
Post-treatment results reveal less noticeable swelling and pinpricks than most cosmetic injection treatments, so you may use this within a day or two of a big event without the worry that someone may notice. Certainly with a little make-up, you will feel able to return immediately to work.
How long does the procedure take?
As with cosmetic injection treatments, most people can be treated in a thirty minute appointment.
Is there a need for repeat treatment?
Yes, most people find that a ‘top-up’ treatment in the first month after the first treatment may be necessary and follow-up treatments may be appropriate every four to six months.
What risks are involved with Lip Enhancement Injections?
Most people would notice minimal swelling or pinprick marks for a short time which can easily be covered with light makeup or cover-up.
Are Lip Enhancement Injections suitable for me?
The decision to go ahead with an aesthetic procedure is a very personal one. The first step is a consultation with one of the qualified members of staff at the Aesthetic Day Surgery. Whatever your reasons you should frankly discuss your personal goals and expectations with respect to the outcome of the procedure (both physical and emotional). As with any aesthetic procedure you should always keep in mind that the desired result is improvement not perfection.
