Lip fillers are one of our favourite transformative treatments for both men and women, and are highly popular in the area of Clapham Common, Clapham. Able to enhance your lips in a number of ways, our clients love how quick, easy and straightforward treatment is – and the benefits these clever lip injections bring, from improved confidence to a plumper lip. Read on to find out more about lip fillers.
What are lip fillers made of?
Lip fillers – also called lip injections by some – are made of the same substance as dermal fillers: hyaluronic acid. This helps the lips retain moisture, as well as enhancing their volume and smoothness. It’s a naturally-occurring substance, so it’s safe, easily processed by the body and unlikely to be rejected or cause a reaction.
Why are lip fillers used?
People like to enhance their lips, whether it’s boosting volume, targeting lines and wrinkles around the mouth, or balancing the harmony and symmetry of their face. As we’ve mentioned, both men and women use the treatment, and it’s suitable for most people over the age of 18.
How long do lip filers last?
Results from the treatment can last 12-18 months, but this depends on factors like the amount of treatment used; how many areas are injected; metabolism; diet and lifestyle; and more. Also, your treatment area may need topping up.
Can lip fillers be dissolved?
Yes, this is possible to do. However, we tend to err on the side of caution – applying small amounts at a time, which can be topped-up if required – rather than a more dramatic improvement that might prove to be too much.
How else can I elevate my lips?
For women, it can be a simple thing like investing in a bright or bold lipstick shade that really suits you, or highlighting the right parts of the face (such as the cupid’s bow), or even defining the outside of the mouth.
