Lip Filler

Have you always craved fuller, more luscious lips, or are your lips simply showing the signs of ageing?

Ageing can cause changes in our lips, they loose their volume and can begin to flatten,  lines around the mouth can appear and the crisp lip border can disappear and result in your lipstick bleeding. The upper lip may increase in length while the surrounding lip tissue also looses its volume.  Dermal Lip Fillers  are used to put back volume in the lips and resore the equilibrium and shape.

Fuller or more balanced lips are high on many peoples wish list but there is often concern about “juju” lips or the “trout pout” that the media tend to highlight. Our doctors at Jeunesse MedSpa® will ensure that your lips fit your face appropriately, giving subtle and very natural appearing lips.

We recommend hyaluron based fillers which is a substance found naturally in your body. This makes them an incredibly safe treatment with results that can easily be tailored to you.


 

The diagram above shows the features that make a beautiful pair of lips.

When you browse through magazines you will notice beautiful lips are not only full but also have good proportions. We are often asked by patients for fuller lips but we are always careful to pay attention to lip proportion and  volume, as well as the overall facial harmony. It is when facial harmony is disproportional that people often look “done” or strange.

Aesthetically pleasing lips are matter of personal preference.

Lip filler can be used to enhance:

  • Size
  • Shape
  • Structure
  • Symmetry

This can be achieved by

  • Adding volume to the body of the lip- this gives the lip volume and everts the inside of the lip out slightly.
  • Create a pronounced Cupids bow- the V shaped area in the centre of the upper lip
  • Define the lip border to stop lipstick bleeding and is like wearing lip liner
  • Enhance philtral columns- The philtrum consists of the two lines in the centre of the upper lip that connects to the nose. By enhancing this, it gives the upper lip more shape and curve, enhancing the sensuality of the lips.
  • Balance uneven lips
  • Reduce fine “smokers” lines -This area is often a key area of concern for patients, and
  • Oral Commissures – corners of the mouth. Filling this area turns the corners of the lips upwards creating a more positive and happy appearance.

All lip enhancements at Jeunesse MedSpa®are carried out by highly skilled doctors only.

After an initial planning consultation with one of our doctors,  a treatment appointment is booked.

At the time of treatment, a strong numbing gel is applied to help reduce the discomfort. The lips are cleaned with anti- bacterial solution. . Small injections are made with a tiny needle into the lip in areas to achieve the desired result. The lips are massaged well afterwards.  We usually review you at 2-4 weeks and occasionally a further treatment is necessary to achieve the final look.

The dermal fillers that we use are temporary, meaning that the body breaks them down. The Hyaluron based fillers usually lasts between 6 -12 months but this can vary from person to person and the amount of dermal filler used. We recommend having a review st 6 months.
