Lips can be augmented through the injection of dermal fillers. The shape, size and symmetry of lips can be enhanced. Furthermore, volume loss of the lips occurs with ageing, and replacing this lost volume can result in more youthful-looking lips. For lip enhancement we use temporary hyaluronic acid fillers.
The effects of temporary fillers can be reversed by using the hyaluronidase enzyme. Permanent fillers can be used but there is a risk of more complications post procedure. Injecting filler into the surrounding areas of the lips may also be beneficial in terms of lip enhancement.
For example, a very popular procedure is to inject fine upper lip lines, or lifting the corners of the mouth. At Eskulap Clinics, our specialists enhance lips proportionately to the rest of the face. It is important to preserve the upper lip and lower lip balance. We are determined to enhance your lips to look natural, not over-inflated. Call today to book your consultation 07747474755.
