Lip enhancement is an extremely popular cosmetic procedure that we offer here at CAID. If you are considering lip enhancement, here are some of the things you should know about the procedure.
WHAT DOES LIP ENHANCEMENT INVOLVE?
Lip enhancement is an aesthetic procedure that can improve the fullness or alter the shape of the lips. As we age, we lose volume in the lips, and lip enhancement is the best way to restore this volume, giving the face a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. The procedure can also be used to correct any imbalance in the shape of the lips, making your face look more symmetrical. This is why many people choose lip enhancement as a way of boosting their confidence, particularly as they get older.
Lip enhancement is performed by injecting dermal fillers into the lips with fine needles, and it is tailored to suit your unique needs. We will consult with you before your lip enhancement procedure to find out what your concerns are about your lips and the results you are hoping to achieve.
HOW LONG DO LIP FILLERS LAST FOR?
The lip enhancement procedure itself is quick, only taking around 30 minutes. You will see results straight away as soon as the procedure is complete, although you may experience some reddening or swelling, which should only last around 48 hours. Once this has healed, you will have beautiful, even,
natural-looking lips with restored plumpness. The results usually last between six months and one year. You can have repeat treatments as many times as you choose.
IS LIP ENHANCEMENT SAFE?
The fillers used for lip enhancements are made from hyaluronic acid. This is a substance that occurs naturally in the body, so it is safe to use. However, it is essential that the procedure is only ever carried out by an experienced professional such as a doctor or dentist. We understand anatomy and will only ever
use the safest products and methods. It is important that you follow the aftercare advice given to you after your lip enhancement procedure. This keeps you safe and ensures the best results.
ARE LIP FILLERS TEMPORARY OR PERMANENT?
Lip fillers are not permanent. As we discussed above, they generally last less than a year, after which time the fillers are safely absorbed into the body. If you like the appearance of your enhanced lips, you will need further treatments every time the effects wear off.
