Lip Fillers In London With Teosyal & Juvederm (Hyaluronic Acid)

Lips injections are not just for enhancement but also ageing

Lip treatments are often associated with volume enhancement and not for anti-ageing purposes. Yet this is far from the truth, as lips are at their fullest between the ages of 16-18. Then as we age, this fullness gradually reduces, along with our skin’s hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin. Lip lines appear as we repeatedly use our muscular lips; whether it’s pouting, talking or smoking. This gradual lip degradation plays a pivotal role in making us appear old, sometimes older than we actually are.

The surface of the lip behaves similarly to products as the skin does. Most products (balms with hyaluronic acid, ceramides & other magic ingredients) can only sit on top and provide hydration from above temporarily. However, they will not penetrate unless causing an irritant reaction seen in some lip plumping products. This is why subtle lip hydration with purified hyaluronic acid injections have become popular amongst those looking for a longer-lasting anti-ageing solution. Softening lip lines while maintaining natural results.

Within London, lip fillers have become very popular over the last decade and so has the black market with practitioners from all sorts of backgrounds, with clever marketing & PR tricks (M shape, heart-shaped, advanced contoured etc) and low pricing (sometimes is lower than the cost of a good quality product we buy!). So it has become essential for people to understand the importance of selecting medically qualified practitioners.

Treatment Objective

Every person’s lip is different. The aims can be for beautification (enhancement), correction (asymmetries) or for anti-ageing.

At Cosmedocs, we adopt a highly aesthetic approach towards lip filler treatments while respecting each individual’s anatomy. This provides great natural, and more importantly, without any long term damage which results from aggressive reshaping. Every lip can be naturally modified to a certain amount and it is important we respect the boundaries of each lip individually.

Youthful, ripe, plump and fuller lips are the prime signs of youthfulness and young age!

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.
