Dermal Fillers are a safe and easy way of enhancing your lips. Dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural component of the skin, which can define, rejuvenate and volumise your lips to beautify or restore a youthful appearance.
The upper lip area
To enhance upper lips, the process is to inject into the upper vermilion border, which is the junction between the red edge of the lips and the face. The best way to describe the vermilion border is that it’s like an inner tube which borders the lips. Dermal fillers provide definition, like lip liner, and also improves the appearance of the creases just above the lip, known as the perioral lines
An typical example would be that two injections are made either side of the top vermilion border. This was where the hyaluronic acid is injected, whilst the needle is slowly withdrawn. This technique is known as linear threading.
The bottom lip
For the bottom lip, the volume can be enhanced by an injection made in the middle of the bottom lip at a 45 degree angle, and then straightened out and withdrawn while the hyaluronic acid is injected. The lower vermilion border can also injected to add definition to the bottom centre of the lip.
Your lips are as individual as you are. A full assessment will be performed to meet your expectations. General feedback is that people are afraid of looking like they have “duck lips”, but rest assured that our treatments are gradual and assessed at every stage.
