Lip Enhancement

How Do Lip Treatments Work?

There a number of ways in which lips can be enhanced using injections.  At our clinic we plump and contour the lips with Lip Filler Injections that contain a form of hyaluronic acid especially suited for use in the lips.

For example the cupid’s bow on the upper lip can be given a more defined look, or volume can be added to the upper and lower lips to increase fullness and give a more defined smile.

In some people the corners of the mouth turn downwards which makes a person look permanently sad, and this can also be improved with Lip Filler injections.  Finally, these injections can also be used to smooth out what we call ‘smokers lines’ around the mouth.

Who Might Benefit From Lip Treatments?

Lip Fillers, which are sometimes also called Lip Augmentation Treatments, are non-permanent injections to provide a non-surgical solution for people who are unhappy with the size or shape of their lips.  Lip Fillers can be used to safely add volume to both the upper and lower lip.

There are different reasons why people may wish to have these treatments.  Age can cause our lips to become thinner or less defined.   Sun damage causes the upper lip to become thinner and the line between the lip’s vermillion and the adjacent skin becomes blurred.   Some people are simply born with thin lips and they wish to increase lip volume in order to provide balance with other parts of their face.   The lips have also  long been considered a symbol of sensuality and many people have these treatments to achieve a more youthful looking mouth.

The Brands We Use

We use Restylane and Juvederm for Lip Filler treatments at our clinic.  Both Restylane and Juvederm are FDA Approved and in our experience provide the best predictable results when treating the lips.

The lips are an extremely sensitive area of the body and both of these brands contain anaesthesia components to minimise discomfort during treatment.

Dr Haus has considerable experience with Lip Filler treatments and worked with Restylane on the launch of their range of new Dermal Fillers for Lips in Scandinavia in 2011.
