Youthful, ripe, plump and fuller lips are the prime signs of youthfulness and young age. As we age, our lip colour starts to fade, lines tarts to appear on our lips and they become thinner and smaller while the lip line starts to fade. This is because the collagen production starts to diminish as we age. The gradual lip degradation as we age play a pivotal role in making us looks old.
You can regain the lost plumpness, sensuousness and youthfulness of your lips with natural lip enhancement treatments. The lip augmentation involves the use of dermal fillers combined with the Botox treatments to give you the perfect and plump lips with well-defined outline. At Cosmedocs, we adopt a highly aesthetic approach towards lip augmentation and integrate state-of-the art treatments and procedures to make your lips blossom like a fresh flower.
Different techniques are utilized for the lip enhancement depending on where volume is required. To improve small lip lines and lipstick bleeding, lips can be rejuvenated by reshaping the lip outline (vermillion,) to give a youthful, appealing contour. The cupid’s bow and the philtrum ridges on the upper lip can be defined and the main lip body plumped. Often a combination of non-invasive lip enhancement techniques can be applied to give the best results. The picture below shows the variation in contour of lips. Using these procedures, the lips can be reshaped just the way patients may desire:
Initially our experienced cosmetic doctors will discuss any issues you may have with your lips and what the possible options are. Once a decision has been made on the treatment, a topical anaesthetic will be applied before the procedure. The dermal fillers we use also contain anaesthetic so discomfort is minimised. Throughout the treatment you will be able to review the results with the practitioner and photos will be taken before and after.
The procedure will take about 20-30 minutes. Once completed, the lips will be massaged well and post treatment advice will be given.
