What does the lip enhancement procedure involve?
Small quantities of filler are injected into the border of the lips or body of the lip depending on the desired effect. The process can be uncomfortable so topical local anaesthetic will be applied to reduce any discomfort. Also, the filler itself contains anaesthetic. It should take approximately 30 minutes and the effects are instant.
What is the result?
Lip borders can be defined and the shape and size of the lips can be enhanced. This treatment is also ideal for reducing lines and creases around the mouth area (including ‘smoker’s lines’). Results last approximately 6-9 months.
Are there any risks or side effects?
Swelling and redness are common side effects, but such complaints are very temporary and should subside shortly after the procedure.
