Who is this treatment for?
As we age, we lose volume in our face. Combined with the movement of fat pads, this can drastically change our overall appearance. With dermal fillers, we can enhance lips to bring them back to their original state.
Dermal fillers can be used to enhance lips, creating increased balance and facial harmony.
What conditions does this treat?
We can target:
- loss of volume
- smoker’s lines (vertical lines around the mouth)
- weak boarders
- an ill-defined Cupid’s bow
How does it feel?
The injection itself feels like a slight pinch and for some patients can be slightly uncomfortable, we do offer topical anaesthetic. Depending on the product, some contain anaesthetic to ensure you are as comfortable as possible.
Is it safe?
Dermal fillers have been used for over a decade and they have now developed products with a low allergy rate, ensuring they are well received by the body. As an experienced injecting registered nurse, Alicia is familiar with body anatomy, ensuring injectables are administered in the best, most reliable way possible.
Is there downtime?
You may appear slightly red in the area of the injections but this should subside within an hour or two. Swelling and bruising is common with most patients and can generally last up to a week. Ice will help with any possible swelling.
When will I see a result?
Results can be seen instantly. Depending on the product used, it is important to increase hydration which will improve results over the following few days.
