Facial Rejuvenation involves a consultation and assessment with a Doctor and Registered Nurse Injector. During this consultation with the patient they recommend various cosmetic injections, laser and other facial treatments which can help with minimising the signs of time and environmental factors. As we age we lose the natural fat deposits in the cheeks, lips and temples. We also create lines and creases within our skin from the continual muscle action of the facial muscles that produce our facial expressions. Injections can help restore the fullness to lips, cheeks and temples. We can also use injections to help decrease the ability for the muscle to continually form creases from our expressions. Injections can also be used to dissolve the fat deposit under the chin that gives the double chin appearance.
With cosmetic lip enhancement, Our Nurse Aestheticians and Doctors can add volume to the lips and improve the lips contour, which can ultimately have a positive effect on your entire facial aesthetic. Lip enhancement and augmentation can be effectively attained with fillers available here at our practice. We offer detailed lip enhancement treatments that focus on obtaining your goals with beautiful, natural-looking results.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
What you can expect from Lip Enhancement & Facial Fillers
Lip enhancement is designed to help patients achieve a more contoured, luscious appearance to the lips. Procedures to augment the lips are typically performed using injectable dermal fillers. Dermal fillers offer a way for you to achieve more fuller-looking lips without the need for invasive surgery or lip implants. The treatment involves injection of the dermal filler solution into the lips with a very fine needle. The treated areas can be numbed with a local anaesthetic to minimise discomfort. Once you have the desired lip contour, the procedure is complete. Lip enhancement usually takes about 30-60 minutes to complete, and most patients do not require recovery time after treatment.
Although there may be some mild bruising or swelling following the lip enhancement procedure, this is temporary and should settle quickly. Depending on which type of dermal filler is used for lip enhancement, your results can last from 9 to 12 months and even longer in some cases. Plus, you can keep the effects going with follow-up treatments.
Deeper lines may be filled with a cosmetic filler to smooth out the line. Fillers can also be used to plump cheeks, contour temporal regions, jaws and other facial structures.
Our Nurse Aesthetician and doctors will be happy to meet with you in an initial consultation to discuss lip enhancement and the dermal filler options that may be best for your unique needs. Please contact our practice for more information, or to schedule an appointment.
