Have you always craved fuller, more luscious lips, or are your lips simply showing the signs of ageing? Lip fillers provide the perfect pout!
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. Lip Fillers put back volume in the lips and restore 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.
All lip fillers we use are hyaluron based, a substance found naturally in your body. making them an incredibly safe treatment with results that can easily be tailored to you.
Beautiful natural lips are a key feature of the face.

An application of a strong numbing gel for 20-30 minutes prior to the treatment, helps reduce the discomfort. The lip filler also has anaesthetic in it to help reduce the pain even more. The area is cleaned with anti bacterial solution to reduce the risk of infection. We use tiny ultra-fine needles to inject the lip filler targeting specific areas to achieve the desired result. We recommend a review at 2-4 weeks and occasionally a further treatment is necessary to achieve the final look.
The result is a perfect set of lips that will make you love how you 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 at 6 months.
Hyaluronic acid based (HA) lip fillers are one of our most popular treatments. Our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid, a substance that has the ability to hold more than a thousand times its weight in water, ensuring excellent moisture in your skin.
